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.
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.
If you are a humble person, you will be able to let this book touch your soul in a very positive way.

Very similar to The dragon slayer with the heavy heart and the princess who believed in fairy TalesPublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
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.Published on Feb. 13 2004
