Publisher's Summary

In this national best-seller, Robert Bly explores the idea of the missing father in contemporary society. He draws upon a cornucopia of legend and literature - as varied as the poetry of William Blake, Jungian psychology, and Sioux initiation rituals - to encourage men in their pursuit of the “inner warrior.”

The unlocking of an important puzzle.

The smearing of Robert Bly by the women"s movement just showed how un-read these people were at the time. Men who desire to find out what is going on in their lives, (and the women who love them), and why many are so dis-satisfied with the way things are, can profit handsomely from this book. It is an excellent gift, hard won by Bly's years of research and experiences of working in men's groups. Of benefit to every Western male I know. This is not a once over book however. No problem; the serious reader will find themselves wanting to go back, again as they see themselves perhaps for the first time. Like the unlocking of an important puzzle.
