Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Not only are men no less emotional and in need of love and support than women, but, according to TV therapist Kingma, they are ``as oppressed by the male role as we have been by women's.'' Here she shows women how they can help the men they love to develop and express themselves. She contends that as a result of the women's liberation movement, men struggle to maintain macho identities by channeling their energies into work, sex, sports or other physical action. Along with a list of ``transformational attitudes'' and behaviors for women designed to help their men achieve a step-by-step emotional awakening, Kingma suggests 22 questions geared towards stimulating greater communication and intimacy between partners. Much of this is familiar self-help advice, and the book mainly serves to reinforce the arguments of the burgeoning men's movements. 35,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (June)

    A book to learn from

    Finally I found a book that wasn't condescending or stating the obvious when it comes to men and women in their relationships. Kingma is an amazing, articulate writer and keenly perceptive. I actually learned from this book, particularly how to be more sympathetic towards men.
