I have numerous shelves full of books written specifically for women. These resources encourage women to let go of unhealthy societal expectations, learn to love themselves, and to embrace their inner goddess.

What I realized as I began reading The Hidden Spirituality of Men is that I don’t have any books written for men or about the masculine parts of us all. What about my husband, my son, and my grandson? Doesn’t the world give them unrealistic messages that “real men” don’t show their emotion

Could have been cut in half. Though insightful and overall interesting, very repetitive. With only a few exceptions (ex. the chapter on Icarus and Deadalus), read as a dry research paper. You'd be better served reading a summary than the book itself.

I expected a lot from this book, but it was a nice expansion on the evolving idea of archetypes of the self and their shadow. This book is a fine companion to King, Warrior, Magician, Lover by Robert Moore.

NOT for men only. Matthew Fox struck gold again with this wonderful look into the archetypes for male spirituality that has encouraged me toward a healthier balance of masculine/feminine in my own life and in my world view. I didn't agree with everything he described, but many aspects of the archetypes rang true and his perspective on masculinity brings hope for a true masculine spirit which has been so wounded by patriarchy.

Matthew Fox has never written a book that I haven't liked - and this one is no exception. This is not a book to be read in a single sitting but rather a book that is best read a sentence or two at or a paragraph at a time. Taking time to reflect on what he has written.

Had to put this one down before finishing. Very far out there, and not compelling enough to keep reading.

He is an exponent of Creation Spirituality, a movement grounded in the mystical philosophies of medieval visionaries Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Aquinas, Meister Eckhart and Nicholas of Cusa. His books have sold millions of copies and by the mid 1990s had a "huge and diverse following".
