Does anyone have a suggestion on a mental health book that appeals the hyper masculine?
To get right into it…my father is abusive and a bit of a narcissist. My parent split up about two years ago and my father and I haven’t been on speaking terms since, but I have to see him at holidays and on family visits. He knows I would be willing to continue a relationship with him if he would start to go to therapy, however he said he “wouldn’t know where to start.”
The holiday season is approaching, and in the past, I gave him books I knew he’d love; anything fantasy, sci-fi, horror, or historical fiction. Since the split, I’ve just passively bought him gift cards, but this year I’d like to get him a book on mental health. Obviously, I’m not going to go Brene Brown on him, but if anyone knows of a book that conveys a similar message with a David Sedaris or Mark Manson vibe, I’d greatly appreciate it.
I don’t want to get him a gift card so he can spend it on whatever he wants, I want to give him something that shows that I’m willing to be there for him. I want to give him a start.
All suggestions are welcome.
