Making use of my cold objective masculine, I've decided to utilize my inner feminine and 'gift the world' by helping you avoid this book. I feel better already.
I was pretty stoked to listen to this program, but it is beyond disappointing. The author basically has one very tenuous theory that he restates over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again over the course of 5 hours. It's touchy-feely psycho-babble at it's worst.
This took every ounce of strength for me to endure two hours of the author's psycho-garbage. Most men today would never relate to the author's thinking. It may have been ground breaking in the hippie era, but I believe we have moved past that time. Don't waste your time because I believe that anything you do as a man will be superior to hearing this book.
Hmm with all due respect the book made some sense but sounds like it was written by either a woman or a homosexual hippy. There is very little masculine in this book. If the great men of the present and past listened to it they would have the author killed. The book added no value and was very hard listening. It was more like a mystical hypnosis tape. I would not recommend this book to anyone with testosterone.
Deida approaches his topic with a take-my-word-for-it attitude. At lot of what he says is questionable. Much of what he recommends probably works for most people. But why it works is not convincingly supported by his philosophy and likely better understood via other approaches. If you like Deida's opinions, you'll probably like this book. If don't share Deida's opinions, this book is unlikely to change your mind, or be an interesting and enjoyable listen.
IN ALL FAIRNESS I AM A WOMAN AND THOUGHT THIS MAY HELP ME UNDERSTAND MEN EVEN THOUGHT THE BOOK IS FOR MEN TO UNDERSTAND WOMAN..MY HUSBAND WAS READING THIS AND I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY IT TOO....I DIDNT MAKE IT VERY FAR BEFORE I QUIT LISTENING
Who is this idiot. New age garbage at it's finest. This may be the most inferior man I have eeever heard. The app forced me to give it two stars instead of none.
I wan't my money back
I have nothing to offer anyone except my own confusion.
Better writing and material.
Not a chance
I would read a novel written from a factual stand point that was interesting and informative.
Read/listen to something else.
Men might think this book makes sense or sounds good, I checked it out at the insistence of my boyfriend, but i just could not take it seriously.
