I recommend John Eldredge's book to people all the time, especially new mothers of boys. My personal copy is in the possession of a college girl who was seeking to understand the male species a little better-I hope it helps.
I decided to pick up a new copy tonight as it has some insights I want to reconnect with for an upcoming message. I picked up a copy and opened the cover, to my surprise I saw this.....
It appears to be the real deal.
