Hazards of Being Male

Post by adria2789 » January 30th, 2012, 8:41 am

I finished reading this book, Hazards of Being Male: Surviving the Myth of Masculine Privilege by Herb Goldberg. a few days ago. I found it in a "Free" box in the halls of the psychology department on campus...along with a bunch of other books. :lol: It's a very good, insightful read although some of the lingo is a bit dated. ... 746&sr=8-3

Some reviews on the book from Amazon

...............Alas, if a man points out these truths and complains about his plight then he is labeled a whiner, a male chauvinist, perhaps even a misogynist. But as every guy knows, if you want to get laid you have to play a role; "Just be yourself" does not work ... and if she ever finds out who you _really_ are, there will be hell to pay for having deceived her. So you hide your true self and become a zombie, and the pattern of destruction continues...

Everybody, male and female alike, should read this book for the valuable insights it contains.

".........This book was originally written in 1976, and is considered one of the classics of the men's rights movement. In it, psychologist Dr. Herb Goldberg takes years of clinical experience, and concludes that men, far from being the privileged sex, are actually out of touch with their bodies and emotions, and unhealthily dependent on women. Further, too many men are on a destructive course that leads to mental illness, alcoholism and death. Each chapter in this fascinating book ends with a list of guidelines that the man should study to examine himself....."
