Abstract: 'A man learns masculinity primarily from his father. But generations of boys without caring and accepting fathers and mentors grow up modeling themselves after overblown myths of manhood. Obsessed with being "man enough," they become hypermasculine--constantly overcompensating for their lack of a true role model. Chances are they are unable to commit to family life.'
