Overview

This eye-opening report on modern relationships will change the way women think about men by revealing what men really think about women.

"What went wrong?" After a relationship ends--whether it's a twenty-year marriage or a promising romance that proves to be disappointingly fleeting--women ask this question, again and again. They ask themselves, their girlfriends, their therapists. In this revealing, intimate book, Brenda Shoshanna asks the men themselves--and provides some startling and enlightening answers. Drawing on hundreds of interviews, Shoshanna presents men's own words and perspectives to explore the varied reasons that relationships fall apart--and to provide insight into what can, and cannot, be fixed. This unique book offers new takes on the issues that divide so many couples--and new hope for greater understanding in the future. Subjects include * the fear of commitment * the ghosts of past relationships * the midlife crisis * competition with in-laws * waiting for the perfect lover * the fantasy woman * women who can't be satisfied * the repetition compulsion * the other woman * seeking the Garden of Eden * the need for adventure and growth * the need to control * daring to love again

* Introduces the "Turnaround Procedure"--a technique women can use to avoid relationship pitfalls
* Women crave more communication from men--this book lets them hear what men themselves have to say about relationship problems
* Covers a wide range of issues, from the commonly recognized (fear of commitment or the midlife crisis) to the more unusual and surprising (competition with in-laws or the need to control)
