This is a great find for fiction authors. A member of my writer's group who is pursuing a Masters in Mental Health Counseling recommended it to us. I found it a well-spring of ideas and issues related to men. There were a number of ways to approach my future male characters. I think this book will help me make my "men" even more realistic and dynamic.
