Samuel Osherson shows how a man's "unfinished business" with his father affects his relationships with his wife, children, friends, and bosses; how it can lead to a profound sense of loneliness and rage; and how every man can resolve the inner conflict of the father-son relationship. What makes this book special is after an examination of the father-son relationship, Dr. Osherson teaches "Healing the Wounded Father" and demonstrates how men can develop a trustworthy sense of identity through a variety of strategies for self-understanding and for exploring more about one's father and family. This book is not just a study, it's an empowering program for men. The ultimate goal being to "detoxify" men's internal senses of masculinity and see their fathers, themselves, and all men more realistically. These matters are rendered in each chapter in a sympathetic, yet tough-minded fashion that men, and the women in their lives, have found helpful, honest, understanding, inspiring, and eloquently written.
