I’m involved with NCFM because I support the organization’s goals of being dedicated to the removal of harmful sex based stereotypes and discrimination against men, their children, families, and the women who love them. I am particularly interested in NCFM’s work to help all victims of family violence.

Mr. Cook is the author of Abused Men-The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence (Praeger/Greenwood). His work objectively examines and explains relevant research results, the feelings and problems of interviewed victims, and provider and media response to the issue. He has examined scores of national and international domestic violence and family programs and evaluated their potential for helpful replication. “It reads like 1,000 Dear Abby letters…Fascinating…but it explains the many aspects of domestic violence. A wealth of material that could be helpful,” Dear Abby’ Abigail Van Buren, Syndicated Columnist. “The wife with a rolling pin is no joke, but a statistical fact…Cook shows at length, that the sexes have two contrasting strategies…By Cook’s own standards, those of a journalist, this is a highly successful book.” -West Coast Review of Books

Mr. Cook holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Oregon. He has appeared on numerous national radio and television shows such as CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Network’s “The O’Reilly Factor” & “The Crier Report”, “The Sally Jesse Raphael Show”, “The Montel Williams Show”, “The Home and Family Show”, Westwood Radio Network’s Jim Bohannon and Dirk Van Shows, CBS radio, and more than 50 radio talk shows in cities around the nation. His articles have appeared in Employee Assistance Professional “Exchange” Magazine, The Oregonian, Deseret News, The Vancouver Columbian and other daily newspapers. He has contributed to these anthology books: Opposing Viewpoints-Greenhaven Press; Everything You Know Is Wrong and You Are Being Lied to-Disinformation Press; and with co-authors in the distinguished academic publication, “The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment.” He has been quoted as an expert on male victimization in domestic violence incidents by The National Associated Press, Canadian Associated Press, “Medical Economics Magazine, “ “Law Enforcement Technology” and many daily newspapers. “I highly recommend him as a speaker and the research he has done for your organization,” James J. Londis Ph.D. Director of Ethics and Values Integration, Kettering Medical Center.

Honorable Men

The New Warrior community is a group of men who specially pride themselves on being honorable. Tim Goldich, President NCFM Chicago Chapter and author of, Loving Men, Respecting Women: The Future of Gender Politics joined that community several years ago. He came to realize just how vulnerable honorable men are to having their honor used against them. Our fate may indeed depend upon honorable conduct. To better understand how the misuse of Man’s honor is a root cause of issues and ideas found on this website you should first read Mr. Goldich’s article, The Honorable Man. It lights the way to understanding how The Honorable Man can be manipulated into becoming The Complacent Man.
