Publisher's Summary

Making sense of men's evolution... The stages of development describe the lifelong process by which a man's sense of self evolves. Predictable and unavoidable, these stages determine what men live for and what they can't live without. Understanding the differences between knights, princes, and kings is critical for success in romantic relationships, raising sons, and working effectively with men.

In this intimate conversation you'll learn:

  • What men can and cannot provide at each stage
  • How to avoid the tragic mistakes women make
  • What's really happening during a "mid-life crisis"
  • What makes a man "ready" for relationship, marriage, and children
  • The importance of adventure to men of all ages

Plus much more!

Why isn't this taught in every highschool?!

wow. I'm floored and excited to learn more. a few key points I loved learning
- men are single focused. That means when they are watching t.v they literally can NOT hear you
-men flick through all channels then say nothings on because nothing is WORTHY of their time
- we need to stop treating little boys like little girls by making them care about hygienic, being tidy and quiet
- when a boy becomes a knight he is SUPPOSED to be with his friends and learn loyalty and go on adventurers
- "behave" means everything to a woman, and nothing to a man-except surpress yourself

The Work of a Genius

No one knows men or women better than Alison Armstrong. She knows men better than most men know themselves. While women obviously have an interest in listening to this, so should every man. To quote Montaigne, "The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself."

Very Insightful!

Definitely one of the best if not, it is the best in explaining why and how men act the way they are throughout their lifetime. It made me feel better about how I feel on my current relationship. Although, I believe that the only piece that is missing on this is what to do as a woman while a man is in a certain stage of development. The author somewhat discussed it but I still felt unsatisfied with the suggestion. I felt that the recommendation were too vague for my need. Overall, I was happy with it. I highly recommend this for people who just want to understand men but not necessarily to those who want more answer on how to deal with men.

Total Appreciation For This Heartfelt Work

What did you love best about The Amazing Development of Men, Expanded 2nd Edition: Every Man's Journey from Knight to Prince to King?

Exceptional information for women who are really ready to understand and men who would benefit from some validation and who're interested in being understood.When I called for a solution, this book provided usable, valuable, practical, inspiring and TRANSFORMING answers for my relationship with myself AND with the men in my life. In a state of total appreciation for the heartfelt work of this author.

What other book might you compare The Amazing Development of Men, Expanded 2nd Edition: Every Man's Journey from Knight to Prince to King to and why?

"The Queens Code"

Any additional comments?

I read "The Queens Code" and had the most "lightbulb" moments of any self development work I've done to date. I wanted more and this delivered it easily, simply, understandably and transformationally yet again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Helps me understand my man!

I wouldn’t call it a prescription, but it’s nice to learn about the development and the kinds of questions to ask to get good answers while you’re with a certain man in a certain stage!

Judgmental and Problematic

Spoke so harshly of a stereotypical type of woman while putting men in an infantile role of being stuck in their caveman instincts. More judgmental Men are from Mars, Women are blah blah. Writer obviously has problematic relationship with women, which hopefully changed with her Queens Code that was originally recommended to me. Doesn't age well.

truly great

this was an amazing read. I think it's given me a lot more information about men than I ever knew or wanted to agree with. this is really good. Will listen to it again and again probably before I get married and while in marriage just as a reminder.

Imperative for men to read!

...And of course women too. A very beautiful look inside of minds and hearts of men and women and the stories we tell ourselves about the opposite sex. Thank you Allison!

Good guideline

If you could sum up The Amazing Development of Men, Expanded 2nd Edition: Every Man's Journey from Knight to Prince to King in three words, what would they be?

It's a wonderful audio book based upon the stages a man faces in life, it made me feel a little more comfortable at the stage of life im in.
I just wish there was something in there regarding how to embody being a man , embody masculinity.

What did you like best about this story?

It helps me explain to a woman whats I'm really thinking and what I can provide as a provider and a man

What about Alison A. Armstrong’s performance did you like?

She seemed actually genuine, wonderful voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No 3 days

The Prince went into the tunnel

And a transformation occurred....

Oh my what an amazing insightful read ( listen ), every man and every woman needs this information, let's stop this GLOBAL misunderstanding between the sexes and move into partnership, maybe peace between the sexes might bring peace in general!!!
