NO. Full stop. Period. The philosophy behind Dr. Celi’s book is to increase appreciation and respect for how men view themselves and the world. It’s valid. It doesn’t need to be defended. It simply needs to be understood. Then we can negotiate win/win’s in our interactions.
That’s why words from men for men are incorporated into the book. The conversation between Dr. Celi and the men, individually and as a group demonstrate how we can respectfully talk about topics that are important.
