After years of socialization that mandates fierce independence, invulnerability and strength, many men fall into what psychotherapist Robert Pasick calls a "deep sleep". This book offers men a guide to change - drawing from the author's experience of counter-selling midlife men, the author explores the issues of work, anger, grief, women, sexuality, fatherhood and addiction. He emphasizes a new definition of manhood that builds upon the strengths men already have and leads then towards a new discovery of how to take care of themselves and others. By the co-author of "Men in Therapy".

Robert S. Pasick, Ph.D. is coauthor of Men in Therapy. He is a psychologist, family therapist, and consultant at The Ann Arbor Center For The Family in Michigan. A graduate of Harvard University, he conducts workshops on gender issues in the workplace.From Publishers Weekly:
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.
