Friend Grief and Men
"Be a man."
Society expects men to take charge, get things done and keep their emotions in check. But what happens when their best friend dies and they're not allowed to grieve?
In Friend Grief and Men: Defying Stereotypes you'll meet men whose friendships shaped their lives. Some lost a best friend. Some lost dozens of friends. Their stories of grieving and healing will change your perception of what it means to 'be a man'.

"Straightforward and carefully researched, each book focuses on aspects of the mourning process for loss of friends (i.e., military, workplace, 911, AIDS), offering insight into grief and providing guidance for managing loss. I highly recommend the series. The booklets are an excellent resource for the workplace, for clinics, for ministries, and for all individuals struggling with loss." - Gwendolyn Plano
