When Being Nice Instead of Good Hurts

Truth is truth- and you do not have to be a Christ-follower to appreciate and learn from the truths in this book. Author Paul Coughlin gives a detail and research filled analysis why men have been lead to live passive lives and the danger it creates. This isn't some kind of "lead your wife into submission" book. Instead, it is a call to take responsibility for our actions and to take a stand for what is right. It's about regaining passion for life and goodness- and how we sacrifice the vitality of life God intended and replace it with niceness. Reminds me a bit of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and the description of the main character Aslan:

"Safe?" said Mr. Beaver."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you."

Grab this book now and discover a freshness and richness that's lacking in our current culture of selfishness and complacency. Like me, you may not agree with everything, but it is a most important read for anyone, male or female, who wants more out of life.
