author of "Never Good Enough: How to Use Perfectionism to Your Advantage Without Letting It Ruin Your Life"
"The Adonis Complex" is an eye-opener. The authors explain how men's pursuit of body perfection has led to a new form of personal misery. Their revealing research on male body obsession proves that men are not immune to the societal pressures to look perfect. This book is full of surprising insights on the efforts many men make to overcome feelings of inadequacy and provides guidance to these men and their loved ones on how to regain control over their lives and bodies.Reseña del editor:
Combining case studies with scientific research, this book reveals a threat that is as serious as the beauty myth for women or anorexia nervosa for girls. Growing numbers of young men are taking the quest for perfect muscles, skin and hair too far, crossing the line from normal interest to abnormal obsession. The symptoms of this body obsession, excessive workouts, steroid abuse, eating disorders, and body and muscle dysmorphic disorder lead to problems with sex and intimacy, relationships and work. This book shows what men really think and feel about their bodies, so no-one need suffer alone.
