'I felt happier than I had been for years and I wanted to tell people about it but it's not a good idea to show too much emotion in business you know. You get the job done and you keep your feelings to yourself.' - (Peter, aged 45).'And I kind of rediscovered what I think I'd found when I was really young that things were really quite easy, that I could do a lot of things that I saw other people do. I didn't have to be scared and I think it was just the scared aspect that was making me see everything so negatively. So I tried it and I kept going.' - (Daniel, aged 35).""The Hearts of Men"" reveals the emotional lives of men as told in their own words. With gut-wrenching honesty more than a hundred men from all walks of life share their stories with Chris Barker. They include sportsmen, executives, retired soldiers, homeless drug users, Buddhists and members of the men's movement.What Chris Barker finds is a striking divergence in the ways in which men's emotional lives can generate personal happiness or despair. The book shows that men do talk about their emotions and with a surprising degree of insight.Thoughtful, provocative and carefully researched, ""The Hearts of Men"" reveals much about emotion and happiness, and the possibility of change, both for men and their partners and families.
