    I was particularly captivated by Corbett's deep and yet easy to follow analyses of particular patients The book does an excellent job at providing with a language with which to start thinking again about masculinities and boyhoods even our own Perhaps it lacks in systematically laying out the core conceptsideascritiues being put forth Overall definitely worth it for people interested in masculinity ueer theory psychoanalysis

    I guess this book was fine but it read like a research paper and didn't have a lot of practical application It was a lot of Freudian musings and comparisons which aren't without value but were definitely without attraction I think this guy is probably a much better psychologist than he is a persuasive speaker His thoughts were intelligent but too generic and contrived without much meat and too much stew I would only recommend this book to the most serious child psychologists
