Publishers Weekly Ackerman offers advice on how to communicate better and grow emotionally. Not just another "men's movement" book, this is a notable addition to the literature on male psychology.
Margo Harakas Sun-Sentinel It's a book of hope, a hand-holding guide for all those men who survived their dysfunctional upbringing, but not without wounds and lingering pain.

$5.00. I've read the whole thing except for one chapter about
raising kids because I don't have any.
Granted, there is a lot of the same material covered as you'll find in any of the dozen or so codependence books I've either read all or part of. But there is also some unique material covered from the male angle. So much of the codependence material seems targeted to women and I'm not knocking that but
I think the male thing needs coverage as well.
I think Dr. Ackerman did a good job. But I beleive very much
in the theory which he writes about here....that so much of the
crazy things we do as adults are triggered by something that
happened when we were kids and that we'll be better off if we
can unravel those triggers and thus, defuse them.
I highly recommend "Silent Sons" for personal use by men and for women, THE gift for the men in your life. 902-367-2743
or just doesn't really communicate with you about anything "emotional", then this
book may help you to understand him better, and it may help him to "figure himself
out" more, and open up.
