"Jed Diamond is, quite simply, one of the wisest men writing today on the
topic of male emotional and physical health. The Irritable Male Syndrome is
not only a powerful book, it is an essential one. He helps us understand
why men are so irritable, angry, and depressed, and more importantly what
men and women can do to prevent and treat these problems. This book can
save your relationship and may even save your life. It is filled with
personal examples and case studies of people the author has helped. Jed's
care and compassion come across in every page. The Irritable Male Syndrome
is a must read."
