"Michael Addis, a leading expert on the psychology of men, gives us a lens through which to see and understand the invisible men in our lives and provides a set of powerful tools to overcome the forces that keep men invisible. The messages and strategies in "Invisible Men" are unique and invaluable for men and for all the people who love them."--Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Yale University and author of "Women Who Think Too Much"

"The world would be a better place if everyone--men and women--read this groundbreaking book on the silence and invisibility that surrounds the lives of so many men."--Terry Bradshaw, Hall of Fame NFL Quarterback and FOX Sports Broadcaster

"Thoughtful, articulate, and most importantly, compassionate--Michael Addis gives a name to the problem that affects so many men and their partners, and helps us understand what we can do about it."--Professor of Psychology at the University of Mary Washington, and author of "The Masculine Self"

"In "Invisible Men", Dr. Michael Addis puts his finger on a critical part of the male experience, namely, keeping our vulnerable inner lives hidden. This is an important and critically needed book for every man, and every woman who cares about boys and men in her life, and who wants to understand and loosen the vice grip of invisibility and silence."--James Mahalik, Professor of Counseling Psychology, Boston College


Award-winning research psychologist Michael E. Addis identifies and provides answers surrounding the long-unspoken epidemic of silence and vulnerability in men

Drawing on scientific research, as well as his own personal and clinical experience, award-winning research psychologist Michael E. Addis describes in this book an epidemic of personal, relational, and societal problems that are caused by the widespread invisibility of men's vulnerabilities. From increasing rates of suicide among men, to alcohol abuse, to violence and school shootings, his research reveals the continued cost of staying silent when emotional, physical, or spiritual pain enters men's lives.

In the spirit of such bestsellers as William Pollack's Real Boys, Addis identifies the specific problems that result from men's silence and invisibility, what causes them, and how they can be changed. Addis provides readers with compelling stories of the causes and consequences of silence and invisibility in real men's lives. Invisible Men shows both male and female readers how they can break through the gauntlets that appear to protect men, but in reality cause severe harm to men, women, and families.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Didn't get good until the end. 16. September 2013
Von Joseph Hagloch - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
In the first few chapters I felt that this book was geared toward making men look stupid. The author's intent wasn't meant to do this, but you didn't understand that until the last two chapters of the book.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Some Good Insights, but Padded 27. März 2013
Von Brian Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf
A lot of popular nonfiction is padded, and INVISIBLE MEN is no exception. Still, it's a worthy read that offers some good insights.

Like so many people who write about gender and gender roles, Addis goes to the usual extreme of implying very strongly that all differences among the sexes are socially constructed. No doubt that's true to a large extent, but there's no such thing as a human raised without a social structure around him or her. For this reason, any effort to eliminate the reality of socialization with the stroke of a theoretical pen comes across as forced, and that's the case here. Addis focuses a great deal on all the harm that male socialization does to men, but never mentions any of the benefits (and there have to be some - right?). There's also the implication that fathers who try toughen their sons up are hurting them; but Addis might have considered the idea that most fathers know how tough the world is, and they know that you have to be tough so that you don't get eaten alive. But I don't see this reality acknowledged anywhere.

I'm being a little tough on the book, but the author's heart is in the right place, and despite my criticisms, I found myself agreeing with a lot of what he says. He talks about the three types of silence men experience - personal, private, public - and while I found the 3 Ps a little too perfect at first, the more I thought about it, the more I saw the value of thinking in these terms. Addis redefines homophobia as not "fear of homosexuals" but rather "fear of the same (i.e., men)" or "fear of being femmed" - and that's a powerful way of looking at the term. For me, though, the most insightful analysis was the idea of social policing, of male behavior that keeps other men in line with the accepted tenets of masculinity. Since reading this book, I've become hyper-aware of this stuff, and it makes more sense to me every day.

Not a perfect book, and it would have benefited from a bit more nuance, but a good, quick read (sometimes confusing, though, because the structure of a few chapters gets muddled because the author tries to speak simultaneously to men and to women who are in relationships with "silent" and "invisible" men). Oh, and that whole silence and invisibility thing - Silence makes a lot of sense and should have been the title. Invisible is too much of a stretch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AN EYE OPENER 21. März 2012
Von Melissa - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been working in the medical field as a RN for over 30 yrs and I have taken care of a variety patients with many different personalities and diagnoses . I have found that men have a tendency to hold in their emotions and try to be strong even if they are sad or in pain. Dr. Addis wrote a well researched and informative book that helps us to understand what men are feeling and he provided strategies to help them improve their lives. The book was written not only for the medical profession but for the layperson who needs assistance with their lives or have a friend or family member that may be struggling. I thought that I understood my patients but reading the book gave me a new perspective on the feelings of men and how to deal with their emotions when hospitalized. The author provided case studies and advice that is useful for men, women and couples. The book is entertaining, easy to read and concise.(Reviewed by Eileen- Melissa's Mom)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for anyone close to a man 20. Dezember 2011
Von Marshmallow - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dr. Addis has, with the ease of a down-to-earth writer, informed us of a longtime and ever-present find ways to help our male loved ones feel comfortable with their emotions. And he has done this with a mere 253 pages of scholarly information presented in a conversational style that includes personal anecdotes. The exercises he offers are easy to understand and carry out. I read a pre-publication copy and plan to read it again for the pure pleasure of it.
