Why? Because it's a theoretical treatise, an intellectual analysis of the structure of the masculine personality. And while this analysis takes us deeply into the complex mythology of historical societies through the ages, this is probably a subject of little interest to the majority of men and women.... unless you happen to be an anthropologist.
In fact, only a relatively small proportion of the book is devoted to explaining the 4 key archetypes in the male personality in our 21st century society. This might be enough for you if you just want some understanding. But the way this book is written will make your understanding hard won.
Also, I'd guess that most men and women thinking of buying this book are looking for a manual for practical change as well as some understanding of what makes a man a man (or what prevents him from fully embracing the true nature of his masculinity). If that's what you're looking for, you won't find it here. There are more recent books on the same subject which will serve you better.
In short, if you want to understand yourself AND a guide to personal growth, a book which will actually show you how to become more of a man and overcome your limitations, look elsewhere.
