Fire in the Belly: On Being a Manby Sam Keen
Synopses & Reviews
How does one become a "real man"? By joining a fraternity? Getting a letter in football? Conquering a lot of women? Making a lot of money?
With traditional notions of manhood under attack, today's men (and women) are looking for a new vision of masculinity. In this ground-breaking book, Sam Keen offers an inspiring guide for men seeking new personal ideals of strength, potency, and warriorship in their lives.
What does it really mean to be a man? Fire in the Belly answers that question by daringly confronting outdated models of manhood that impoverish, injure, and alienate men. It shows instead how men can find their own path to understanding the unique mysteries of being male and in the process rediscover a new vitality and virility that will energize every aspect of their lives. Here is a look at men at work, at play, at war, and in love, moving from brokenness to wholeness and building nurturing, satisfyiung relationships with one another, their mates and their families.
At no time in history have there been so many men looking for new roles, new attitudes, and new ways of being. In this powerful and empowering book, author Sam Keen retells for modern times the ancient story of the search for what it means to be a man — a man with fire in his belly and passion in his heart.
"Men — and women — will be enriched by the uncommon insights in Keen's speculative primer." Publishers Weekly
