Awakening from the Deep Sleep: A Powerful Guide for Courageous Men

Robert Pasick, Author HarperOne $20 (253p) ISBN 978-0-06-250694-8
Pasick, a psychologist in Ann Arbor, Mich., and coauthor of Men in Therapy , here probes the emotional challenges confronting men at or approaching middle age. The ``deep sleep'' of the title suggests the condition of distance and isolation that results as men are confined to the stereotyped male attitudes and behaviors American society demands of them. Describing such problems as distrust of emotions, inability to connect with others (especially other men) and confusion about sexuality and relationships with women, Pasick breaks little new ground. But he offers both male and female readers pragmatic and helpful ideas as he examines such feelings as grief and anger, dispels many of the myths that inhibit healthy sexuality and suggests ways for men to learn to express their emotions and wake from their ``sleep.'' $20,000 ad/promo; author tour.
