I didnt read the print version.
The explanations of boys being boys.
What happens when you key men out of he cage.
This book does a great job at explaining core values that are at the crux of the gender issue. The is a war on manhood in the United States and he literally tells how to combat it. I enjoyed this book from the prelude to the finale. Great work!
Yes, Too few men can relate to God in organized religions presentation of the Father. This is a great confirmation of what a man's heart wants and why God put it there. And better yet how the the father in a boys life is impacted by a man.
The chapters talking about women.
Good, heartfelt and real, can connect to it and not some evangelical kook.
At times both, I have two sons I am responsible for raising into men, 2 1/2 years and 7 years.
I would also recommend reading the Dale Carnagie book, "How to win friends and influence people" or at least the " Father forgets" short by by W. Livingston Larned.
Every woman should read this book in order to understand the men in her life. I can't agree more with everything John says. I can see the difference between my 16 year old son and my husband and my heart weeps for my husband who has lost his wild heart, like men are trained to do.
I am definitely giving him the book to listen to now.
I thought it was John Eldredge himself reading the book because he sounds so understanding and sympathetic.
This is the first time I have ever given a book 5 stars, as it's the first book that's worth it. I'm on to Captivating now.
This book opened my eyes to what it means to be a MAN. Not a 'man', like the secular world would have me become (and succeeded for many years), but a MAN like God intended me to be since the beginning of time.
Absolutely love this book!!!
Putting books on the back burner.
I just had problems at reading this book. It is not because I am not religious, or I do not know the scriptures from the Bible, but too much masculinity on how to become a real man. It is almost like we are going back to the cavemen's era on how to become a man.
Man should hunt. Man should fight. Man should kill. Man should have "man time".
The last final straw for me was when Eldredge tries explains on how should women used their godly gift to arouse their man, but yet man should not be tempted to pornography and the outside world. It's a catch 22 because Eldredge is saying that man should ask his woman to degrade herself for his pleasure, but yet stay away from other temptations?
I was looking forward at this book by learning the scriptures and how to become a man, but it's all about Eldredge's personal views with scriptures and his own made up examples
I just don't get it. I was hoping for more, but this book is just personal beliefs without a thesis from the scriptures.

A big favorite
The 3 things all men have: an adventure to live, a beauty to rescue and a battle to fight.
It's Life Changing
I like how it explains the critical points in a man's life and how the outcomes of those moments can shape how we view ourselves as men. Then how it goes further and explains what a man needs to do to come alive again!
Great Narrator! Nice balance between getting the point across and speaking with compassion and understanding.
No...But it definitely left a lasting impression.
Several people fault this book for misquotes or misinterpretation. Ultimately I am saying that it does not matter. Read it, think deeply about it. The bible is the guide, this is a catalyst, at least it was for me! Thanks John.
This book, and John Eldredge's other book, "Walking with God" have had more impact then any other books in my life, short of the Bible! I can't say enough.
