They bring years of experience and the power of two leaders who have been doing men’s work for many years. In these confusing times, it’s refreshing to read a book that cuts through the maze of conflicting views to bring men together. Unlike many books that heighten the conflict between men and women, Power Tools for Men offers men and women the opportunity to come together to end the battle of the sexes.” Jed Diamond, PhD, author of 12 Rules for Good Men and The Irritable Male Syndrome.
