BLY, uses a fairy tale full of code to enlighten the reader about 'how to live ones life' As old 'Growth' stories are meant to be used in society, I think a brilliant book, for men who are wondering about their lifes path and where is it leading? Or midlife crisis work.
I consider it important for the growth into maturity for men and suggest another book to be studied after Iron John. The book for further reading is by Clarissa Pinkola Estes '' Women Who Run With The Wolves'' a brilliant bedside bible, full of stages of growth to pick 'yours' from.
I had to pick up Iron John a second time as I became bogged down about halfway. a few years later could read it with a passion.
