In the 20 years since the initial publication of The Way of the Superior Man, the fabric of society has changed significantly. Issues of gender and sexuality long confined to the shadows have become part of everyday conversation, and old ideas and attitudes about our societal roles have begun to dissolve.
And yet, though the wider culture has shifted, men of all ages still “tussle with the challenges of women, work, and sexual desire.” In this anniversary edition of this classic guide to male spirituality, David Deida encourages modern men to lean into the conversation and offer their most invaluable asset to the world—their depth of presence.
More relevant than ever, The Way of the Superior Man offers a view of a more robust, mindful, and embodied masculinity. “It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart,” writes Deida “It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine.”
Now including an all-new preface by the author, The Way of the Superior Man presents the next generation of men with the opportunity to grapple with fear, cultivate trust in the moment, and put forth the best possible versions of themselves in an ever-changing world.
