“Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women—particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as “the enemy”—will find it a real eye-opener.”—Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University

Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male—newly reissued.

What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?

Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood.

As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.

This book takes the myth of Parsifal and attempts to explain some basic aspects of masculine psychology. I did not enjoy this book quite as much as We, or She. The main reason is because, although it describes what men need to do during their journey of life, it doesn't really explain or give many real world examples.The basic premise is that men have a latent or suppressed feminine side of their personality (anima) that needs to be dealt with and accepted instead of ignored.

Seriously? Enough of the fairy tales. What men need is some practical psychology. Not recommended.

This is my first time reading Johnson's works. I give him praise for explaining the the Parsifal story in a meaningful way, and helping us understand the symbolism and message that is to be captured. At first I had a difficult time with Johnson's writing style. It lacked maturity with creatively explaining the Parsifal journey. It felt choppy and rushed. As the writing continued it either got better or I got used to his writing style. I give this book 4 stars for the content and message that was conveyed. I am actually interested in reading Johnson's other books. So he did his job by captivating my interest in who he is and what he has to say. Peace.
