I’ve got it all—a great job, relationship, and lifestyle—so why do I feel so dissatisfied and disconnected?

Why am I not happier in my intimate relationships?

How do I become more powerful—without becoming that jerk everyone dislikes?

Robert Augustus Masters has helped thousands of men address and work through such issues. What he’s found is that the common solution to these dilemmas is challenging yet clear: we must face our unresolved wounds, shame, and whatever else is holding us back, bringing “our head, heart, and guts into full-blooded alignment.”
With To Be a Man, this acclaimed psychotherapist and relationship expert offers a groundbreaking and deeply insightful guide to masculine power and fulfillment. To Be a Man clarifies what’s needed to enter a manhood as strongly empowered as it’s vulnerable, as emotionally literate as it’s unapologetically alive—a manhood at home with truly intimate relationship.
In this book, readers will explore: · How your past may be dominating your present · Shame in its healthy and unhealthy forms, and how to make wise use of it · How vulnerability can be a source of strength · Emotional literacy—an essential skill for relational well-being · Releasing sex from the obligation to make you feel better · How to disempower your inner critic · Bringing your shadow (whatever you’ve disowned in yourself) out of the dark · Embodying your natural heroism and persisting regardless of fear · What women need from men · Understanding and outgrowing pornography · Entering the heartland of true masculine power
If you’ve read your share of popular advice on relationships and being a man—but realize on a gut level that it’s going to take some serious inner work—here’s a great guide to that most rewarding of challenges: doing what’s needed to fully embody your authentic manhood.

About the Author:

Robert Augustus Masters

Robert Augustus Masters, PhD, is an integral psychotherapist, relationship expert, and spiritual teacher whose work blends the psychological and physical with the spiritual, emphasizing embodiment, emotional literacy, and the development of relational maturity. He is the author of thirteen books, including Transformation through Intimacy and Spiritual Bypassing.

Review:

"As a pioneer in the emerging men’s movement, Masters speaks in a clear, no-nonsense voice as he calls men to begin a new hero’s journey of self-discovery and redefinition in which anger and compassion coexist, where emotional literacy thrives, where innate raw power can be embraced without sacrificing vulnerability, and where shame isn’t channeled into aggression. The last section, almost a third of the book, is devoted to the topic of sex, including in-depth discussions of pornography, rape, and sexual acting-out. There is also a chapter devoted to gay men, making it clear that his discussion is not limited by preexisting gender ideas of any kind."
Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

“THE classic handbook for men . . . To Be a Man calls out the ‘warrior’ to do battle inside, to find authentic masculine power, allowing truly intimate relationships with women, other men, and self.”
Bill Kauth, cofounder of The ManKind Project® and author of A Circle of Men and coauthor (with Zoe Alowan) of We Need Each Other
 
 “To Be A Man: Every man should read it as autobiography, every woman should read it as revelation, and our culture should embrace it as a healing balm.”
Harville Hendrix, PhD, author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples and coauthor (with Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD) of Making Marriage Simple

“In this essential book, Robert Augustus Masters challenges current ideas about what it means to be a man, and explores crucial gender issues that affect every man, boy, woman, and girl on our planet. By uncoupling anger from aggression, sexuality from rape and porn, and masculinity from brutality, Robert supports men and boys in reclaiming the sacredness, magnificence, and true power of healthy masculinity.”
Karla McLaren, author of The Language of Emotions and The Art of Empathy

“A masterpiece of transformational wisdom.”
Alan Clements, author of Instinct for Freedom and A Future to Believe In

Jackson Katz, PhD, author of The Macho Paradox and Leading Men,  and creator of the award-winning films Tough Guise and Tough Guise 2
