Popular opinion has always held that men are the commitment-phobic gender and women drag them down the aisle. However, life skills expert Furman (Bommerang Nation) suggests that in our post-Sex and the Citysociety, ladies are often just not that into commitment; women have many other lifestyle options that offer a full single life. Still, many women desire a committed romantic relationship, yet they act in ways that sabotage any possibilities. Furman identifies seven types of commitment phobes, e.g., the Serial Dater and the Player, devoting a chapter to each. With quizzes designed to identify the reader's type of phobia and confessionals from single women, the book is fun. Acute observations regarding the expectations and pressures facing women, contributed by four therapists, are sprinkled throughout; the last chapter is devoted to working through the identified issues. This great guide for getting in touch, dealing with, and quieting a woman's inner romantic saboteur is recommended for public libraries.
