Fierce Intimacy: Standing Up to One Another with Love

Terry Real talks—it's audio only—about intimacy and masculinity. Or, at least, healthy masculinity is the lens that shown through the brightest for me. It's a book about relational living—being with another person, no matter how messy we are. He's quite practical, but hard hitting. He doesn't shy from real topics, and provides such a fresh and empowering perspective. This audiobook would likely work best in the context of other therapy. I found this significantly more meaningful than other books on masculinity that I've read.


These are entirely subjective, and roughly try to capture my personal enjoyment and usefulness, and how likely I'd recommend it to others. Don't read too much into this unless you love my judgement. Rough guidelines:

A: Top quartile. Changed the way I think about something.

B: Worthwhile. I took away something useful.

C: Didn't hit, wouldn't directly recommend. Likely won't revisit.
