    Dr. Weinberg nails it in this book! I've read many books on communication, relationships, etc., and this book is easy to follow, practical, and puts the male psyche in great perspective. I know 2 men who are successful, great 'catches', but tend to be commitment phobic. After skimming through the book, they couldn't believe the accuracy of the message...before reading through it, they thought they were unreasonable, crazies! Now they understand themselves better. Really, if your wanting to understand the fundamentals that lead not only to commitment but also to a strong relationship--read this book!

    Great book!

    This book was great! It really opens your eyes up to why your guy might do some of the things he does. If your guy seems to be committment phobic this book will help you understand why and what sort or things you can do to help him open up. I started dating a guy that was committment phobic, He told me that he doesnt say I love you very often to anyone not even his mom and dad. It's been only four months and whenever I tell him I love him he says it back!! What a huge step for him. Men like this just need patience from us woman.

    Author has some great ideas

    After a quarter of a century working closely with men, Dr. George Weinberg concludes that the male of the species desires permanent commitment and a forever love equal to that, which women want too. The difference is men believe that to admit they want a permanent partner is not considered part of the cultural image and thus too feminine so most males hide their inner feelings as an alpha menace to their masculinity. Dr. Weinberg believes culture forces this role to include women placing the man of their dreams in a situation by comparing his strengths and weaknesses to his rivals.<P> WHY MEN WON'T COMMIT: GETTING WHAT YOU BOTH WANT WITHOUT PLAYING GAMES provides a straight forward guide for frustrated women to enable their mate to find his feelings ('gut reactions') by altering her behavior. Before feminists scream 'no Jane' chauvinism and machos play Tarzan, the key in Dr. Weinberg¿s help guide is to accept that the male is the 'weaker sex' so that the stronger female must take charge by being the relationship caretaker reaching through the stereotype stud to his inner being. This is an easy to follow guide that wastes little if any space assisting frustrated women with solid advice.<P> Harriet Klausner
