Iron John: Men & Masculinity (Robert Bly)
Robert Bly writes that it is clear to men that the images of adult manhood given by popular culture are worn out, that a man can no longer depend on them. Iron John searches for a new vision of what a man is or could be, drawing on psychology, anthropology, mythology, folklore and legend. John Bly looks at the importance of the Wild Man (reminiscent of the Wild Woman in Women Who Run With the Wolves), who he compares to a Zen priest, a shaman or a woodman.

From Wild Man to Wise Man (Richard Rohr)
"From Wild Man to Wise Man: Reflections on Male Spirituality" is a revised and updated edition of Richard Rohr's earlier best-seller, "The Wild Man's Journey: Reflections on Male Spirituality." For this new work, Rohr added three chapters that discuss John the Baptist, Saint Paul and grief. An appendix provides a structure for a men's group, based on Rohr's work with M.A.L.Es (Men As Learners and Elders), a program of the Center for Action and Contemplation, which Richard Rohr founded and now directs in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
