This is a book about choice-a book by and about men, about the choices we so typically fail to make, and the price we pay for that failure. Modern culture seems to undermine us in many ways, so that the Woodstock Generation, the Generation X-ers and the Gen Me-ers have all moved into adulthood without adequate tools for dealing with it, yet full of grand notions about how wrong the world is for being the way it is. Yet the bitter medicine we all face is the challenge to stretch our experience of life as far beyond our habitual comfort zones as we can manage.Do you fit the profile of: -The Tyrant in the Highchair?-The Clinger?-The Bully?-The Avoider, the Fantasy-Prone?-The Victim or The Victimizer?-The Adult Child of a Narcissistic Parent?
