Editorial Reviews

Iyanla Vanzant
“There are questions, and then, there are real questions. Getting to Commitment asks real questions, about a very real issue most of us have faced or are facing—commitment or the lack thereof. Steven Carter and Julia Sokol have touched a nerve that is sure to leave a lasting impression on us all.”
-- Iyanla Vanzant, author of In the Meantime and One Day My Soul Just Opened Up
Susan Forward
“Compassionate, and filled with common sense…Getting to Commitment offers real solutions. It is a valuable book which deserves to reach a broad audience.”
-- Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them
Laura Zigman
“For many of us, the effects of reading Steven Carter’s Men who Can’t Love was Einsteinian. By naming the previously unnamed phenomenon Commitmentphobia, he and Julia Sokol redefined the equation of male/female relationships so that it finally made sense. Getting to Commitment shows us how to balance that equation and finally solve it.
-- Laura Zigman, author of Animal Husbandry
