Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast we bring back Jim Young to talk about his new book, Expansive Intimacy: How “Tough Guys” Defeat Burnout. In our conversation we talk frankly about burnout and what dads can do to combat this and become stronger in the end.
In Expansive Intimacy: How “Tough Guys” Defeat Burnout, Jim Young explores the rules of masculinity that force men into a false choice: either face shame by embracing their inner desires for meaningful connection, or invite burnout by following the harsh rules that require men to shun emotions and emphasize achievement. With both levity and gravity, Jim walks us through his years-long journey through burnout, along with stories and lessons of how other men have boldly escaped burnout by embracing a new way to be tough—through Expansive Intimacy.
