5.0 out of 5 stars Men - Your Tears From Your Heart Will Save You July 19 2002
Format:Paperback
I know that every man who reads this book will see himself in this book. And I hope that they will pay close attention to this story about a man who learned that he does not have to prove to others that he is good, loving and kind.
Men are traditionally taught to fight the threatening enemies; and place fragile women, who are consumed with despair, into an environment that tells the world that they are materially doing just fine.
What's wrong with this, as the story demonstrates, is that this is done out of allegiance to the world first, as apposed to the man's allegiance to himself, and his family.
He develops emotional, social, and spiritual armor, to the point that he doesn't know who to be fully in the moment, in the presence of others, until the price for living like this potentially costs him the very people who he claims to be providing for.
In this story, the knight learned to take in the reality of life, which led him on a path to find his authentic self. He learned that he had lived his entire life trying to make everyone like him, at the price of not knowing who he himself was, in his heart.
And it was not until he was able to cry tears from his heart, that his armor disappeared, and he was able to go home, and truly love his wife and child.

The books brings to your attention the various armors we carry in our lifes and do not even realize it. To get the best out of it , it must be read more than once. It's easy to read and was written in simple words. Fisher, the author, uses the Merlin to create this awareness about the armors we carry to protect us against others , or to prevent us from getting hurt. Removing your armors will expose the true you...Are you willing to live with that?
I think everyone should read this book, and for the parents ( like myself ), have your kids read it too. There's a lot to learn from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest lesson July 20 2011
Format:Paperback
I came across this book by accident one day about 10 years ago. I went to a coffee shop and read it in one afternoon. I could not put it down. I have bought several copies since but I always end up giving it away. I have recently purchased another copy and some extras so I can keep one copy for myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knight in Rusty Armor Aug. 5 2001
Format:Paperback
Every man in my practice is given this book to read and by their report have gained a lot. I am a marriage family therapist. O.K., ask their wives or significant others and they agree. Men don't read as much as women. It is a short book. It is an allegory so ego gets protected while teaching an important lesson about openness, vulnerability and how it rewards. Other books men gain from are Emotional Intelligence, Road Less Traveled, Different Drum, Raising Modern Day Knights, Hinds Feet On High Places, and Abba's Child.

5.0 out of 5 stars A short but totally awesome book Aug. 18 2000
Format:Paperback
This is an amazing book that absolutely everyone should read, because the subject matter applies to everybody. The entire book is one big self-help metaphor from start to finish, and it is peppered with humor that makes it a fun read at the same time. I read the book three times in just a few days, the first time on my own, and then twice together with friends. It is an excellent read, and everybody should at least try it. Once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare to be yourself: the ultimate crusade April 15 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A book written in the simple language of the wise. No need for grandiose words. But it will go direct to the heart of those who are seeking higher meaning in life. Answers to our loneliness, anguish and fears. If one is daring enough will pick up the challenge: tear down your armour and be yourself, then you will love and receive love. Great reading material for teens who try to be part of the crowd.Great for all ages!

3.0 out of 5 stars Little Inspirational?-Yes Motivational?-No
It's a very cute and enchanting story, but as a self-help book it is rather worthless. It's maybe worth the money, but it's not worth your time.
