Reviews

"As an educator and practitioner specializing in work with men, I cannot overemphasize the vital importance of this book in understanding, evaluating, and treating authoritarian men. Robertson has at once respected the deep humanity of individuals, but also the need to hold accountable those who harm others through mis-regulated behavior." - Mark A. Hurst, PhD, Psychology Faculty, The Evergreen State College; Founder, Positive Reentry Program for Incarcerated Men "John Robertson has produced an extremely important work that is deep and thorough regarding the factors contributing to creation of authoritarian tough guys and unusually insightful in recommending pathways for engagement and change. I enthusiastically recommend this book." - Gary R. Brooks, PhD, Professor, Baylor University "For the first time, we have an incisive yet respectful analysis of the inner lives of authoritarian men. Tough Guys and True Believers is the `gold standard' for understanding and treating authoritarian men. I recommend it most highly!" - Glenn E. Good, Dean and Professor, School of Education, University of Florida
