Is this as good as it gets? Can I do better with my life?
These two questions nagged NYSOWA member David J. Figura, as he grappled with a troubled marriage and considered an affair. He was also burned out at his job at his newspaper job, lonely and resentful because of his lack of meaningful friendships. Sound familiar?
In his recently published book, "So What Are the Guys Doing?" Figura, the outdoors writer for The Post-Standard newspaper in Syracuse, bares all and relates the changes he made in his marriage. He tells of the radical steps he took to make more male friends and the risks he took in his career to turn things around - and also of his conversations with more than 50 men dealing with many of the same issues.
