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."

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!

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.

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!

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.

This was a game changer for me and it came at a very difficult time in my life. Without understanding it all I would have really struggled to move forward. I recommend this to ALL women who engage in any sort of relationship with men.
