If you're not willing to listen /read more than once don't bother. There's so much good information you should listen to it at least three times in order to understand everything. You will miss things because he has you connecting on one point and miss some of another.
Completely misuses the story of Shiva and Kali. Learn the story before using it to justify your views, David. Have a hard time listening after that, but just having this conversation is like nectar for someone who's gone through the bland version of sexuality preached by the common core education system and the over-sexualized media representation about sexuality and masculinity. It's worth a listen, but definitely needs further and more accurate exploration.
Since there is no real story im going to say something about its content here.
For me Deida strengthened and reasured many of my principle in life and helped me understand them even better while also giving me lots of different ways to approach and think of situation and problems you daily encounter with your partner.
What i did not like is that there is no real answer on how to find your deepest gift. Maybe it is because there is no real way to explain this and you have to find it out by yourself.
The breathing exercices at the end of the book are kind of anoying but they might help if you do them very intensely. If you just want to hear what Deida has to say you can just skip them.
Overall this book really helped me shape my way of thinking as myself as a male.
Great book and flawlessly good for the individual pursing greater insight in mastering personal masculinity and his relationships with feminine energy. Not a book for the spiritless.
