I THINK A MAN'S JOURNEY TO SIMPLE ABUNDANCE DEEPENS AND BROADENS THE ETERNAL ROMANCE BETWEEN ADAM AND EVE. CERTAINLY, IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE SPIRIT OF BRINGING MEN AND WOMEN CLOSER TOGETHER BY REVEALING OUR SIMILARITIES, NOT JUST OUR DIFFERENCE. PART OWNERS'S MANUAL, PART GUIDEBOOK, A MAN'S JOURNEY EXAMINES THE PRIVATE PILGRIMAGES THAT OCCUR IN EVERY MAN'S LIFE AND THE COMPASS THAT STEERS HIM TOWARDS LIFE'S TRUE NORTH.
― A MAN'S JOURNEY TO SIMPLE ABUNDANCE
The Authentic Journey Continues--for Women to Understand Men, and for Men to Understand Themselves...
After empowering millions of women through her ground-breaking Simple Abundance and its companion volumes, Sarah Ban Breathnach was deluged by requests that she also write "a Rosetta stone for understanding men." Yet, Sarah also knew that she needed a man to help her represent an authentic male experience. So she invited Michael Segell, former "Men's Mind" columnist for Esquire and author of Standup Guy and The Devil's Horn to join her in creating A Man's Journey to Simple Abundance, a candid and courageous collection of 50 original essays written by men who come with a wide array of experience and perspective that Publisher's Weekly praised for succeeding "remarkably well in depicting men's feelings and complexity."
The stellar contributors include Sting who speaks honestly about risk; Rick Bass on men's grief,;Christopher Dickey on coming to terms with his famous father, poet James Dickey; Jim Harrison, Larry Brown, Richard Bausch, Roy Blount, Jr., Benjamin Cheever as well as a champion surfer, an army general, a rabbi (bestselling author Shmuley Boteach) and a hermit who writes amusingly on solitude.
This is a marvelous collection of 55 pithy essays by and about men...[is] Simply Terrific.
Distinguished across the board by their honesty, a number of the pieces are moving… Others are funny…enlightening…and shocking.
