Summary This new book uncovers the root causes that can destroy important relationships. "For many men," explain the authors, "sadness and despair find a distorted expression in immature, aloof, selfish, or cruel behaviors that disguise men's emotional pain to others and even to themselves ... Masculine depression often goes unrecognized and untreated." "In addition," they add, "this process leads to destructive behavior in important relationships. Life is hard, and it is inevitable that a person (who has masculine depression) ... will carry their emotional pain to their wives, their children, and their friends."
