Imagine that you are living in a state of happiness, peace, and fulfillment and that you have become an observer of all that life has to offer. Imagine that you have found your purpose in life and that you are living each day inspired and excited to bring about a difference in the lives of those people that you love and maybe even the world itself. Imagine that you have created a road map for your life and that you have a profound sense of where you are going and how you are going to get there. Imagine that you have broken free from the bonds of your past experiences and that each “lesson” has been the fire that has forged the steel of who you are today.

“In ‘The Authentic Man’, Dr. John Smith takes us on a journey [specifically men] to achieving happiness. Dr. Smith’s main focus is to address the needs of men who were raised in certain types of household whether it be a single parent household with only a mother, or a two-parent household where the father was indifferent and distant. In either case, Dr. Smith feels that the lack of a strong father figure has led to struggles with depression, addiction to drugs, alcohol and for some ultimately death by suicide.
His goal in this book is to identify and address those issues, and provide a therapeutic method to overcome behaviors that have been ingrained since childhood in men. Dr. Smith starts off with a description of his own journey into adulthood as developing a lifelong sense of shame and inadequacy. Even though he had achieved financially, educationally and professionally, he still felt that something was missing from his life and believes that the lack of male guidance growing up, left a void in his life.
Dr. Smith’s proceeds to identify and categorize the 10 different types of men, their behaviors and the emotions lacking in their lives that prevents them from achieving their happiness and purpose. These emotional deficits, he believes, lead to deep-rooted shame and inadequacies that regardless of all their successes leads them down a destructive path. As a man, Dr. Smith hopes this book will help guide men to what he calls their “true authentic self.”
What’s great about this book is that Dr. Smith points out many personal and professional examples on how men can overcome their sense of shame, and strategies on maintaining their new sense of purpose. He goes on to the share that every day is not perfect, however there are certain tips and techniques that one can use to get back on the wagon.
In the end, Dr. Smith writes that by finding your “True” self and purpose you will overcome your sense of shame and self doubt; allowing you to take off the mask that has held you hostage. If you are ready to claim your share of happiness and develop your sense of purpose, then I encourage you to get a copy of this book, because the real you have been patiently waiting for this opportunity.” – Angela M.
“This is one of the best self-awareness books to come along in a while! It’s really easy these days to be swayed by the opinions of the world. This book helped me to realign my goals and myself and gave me a direction to head to live a purposeful life. Thanks!” – Terence Kalo
