There have been lots of books for women to understand men and vise versa such as ‘Men are from Mars women are from Venus’. Way of the superior man is a book written by a man for men, yet reading it as a woman I have found it to be a powerful tool to aid women to understand their own attractions and reactions to men, and also for women to understand men and their drives. In addition it’s a wonderful book to help men find their purpose. I meet many male clients who reach a point in life where they think ‘there must be more to life than this’ and often more importantly ‘there must be more to ME than this’. I found David’s book to be a great reference for men in search of more.
One of the parts of the book I use time and time again in sessions is when David explains that women want a man who is serving a purpose greater than his serving of her. So many relationships break up and so many people stay single from the lack of understanding of this fact. A wonderful book.
In The Way of the Superior Man David Deida explores the most important issues in men’s lives from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom.
