Through historical studies, psychological profiles of popular ideologies in both the media and in religion, the authors (Moor and Gillette) seek to answer the questions, What is Masculinity? Is it important? Where did it go and why can't we seem to find it?
Throughout the twentieth century, primarily in Western Culture, we've lost the ability to separate being a Boy from being a Man. There are no longer any defined qualities that everyone recognizes as being "manly." Many people (not merely feminists) decry men as brutes. Phrases like "be a man" or "man up" are sexist and crush the creativity of our children. The authors cite the absence of a father in many homes in recent years is an example of why its important that we soon discover, and teach our sons, exactly what it means to be a man. That men, through the help of our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, wives, lovers, and friends, must discover the King that resides in all of us.
This book raised my eyebrows a lot. The authors tend to treat wide sweeping subjects like religion and politics as examples for their psychological evaluation. If those subjects are touchy for you, then just be warned. Every so often the authors let their own internal biases slip inside this document in sarcastic gibes that made me cringe, but those moments are few. And for the most part this book is inspirational and eye-opening. I recommend it highly.

This book is extremely powerful. It has guided me to a great new path where I am striving to master my king archetype. I've experienced years of therapy, self help books, meditation, etc, and I have to say, this book would have helped me even more tremendously if I had read it years ago.

truly appreciate the offer of knowledge here. it speaks on things as they truly are, one with one another
This book really hit a heart and spiritual connection with a force to be on science religion and ideas. And it shows that we have all the best intentions if we were to just choose to. It really reminded me of another book from Jordan Peterson the 12 rules for life.
In accordance to some previous reviews, it is not enough to listen to this book once. On one hand, it is because the book deals with complicated psychological analysis of the human psyche. On the other hand, the language used in this book is very complex. Sometimes I felt like the authors cared less about conveying the message clearly, than trying to sound "cleaver". As according to authors this book is the roadmap to the inner King, it is not very clear roadmap. It is confusing and makes you feel like you lost the main path.
The narration does not help here either. It is fast paced and there is no much emphasis on the key statements and ideas.
Overall, The King Within: Accessing the King in the Male Psyche is probably one of those books that is better to read than to listen. Maybe then also I will be able to access my own inner King...
This audio felt too short. It ended as I was just getting into it. I can't wait to get the full book so I can explore these concepts more deeply. The audiobook is a warmup, you must buy this book.
Would recommend this to anyone who would like to discover the inner man and what it means to be a man.
good premuse and substantial support for restablihing masculinity. very thoughtful perspective, very relevant to todau's world.
Brilliant legacy of Moore's elaboration upon C G Jung belief that words, dreams, images & waking life are equally real.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. This is an excellent framework in understanding and accessing the real male psyhe. I believe today more than ever, a man must develop his real self in order to provide, protect, pro create and serve his community and the world at large. first, though we must access the king within. This was a brilliant teaching.
Great find. After being really into the concept this series is awesome. So thankful. It esp clarifies the terms of the wounded child and shadow.
