I loved this book! I had never heard of it before I saw it in the store and was actually there to buy a different book but as I always do, I was perusing the shelves and the title caught my attention. I read the synopsis and thumbed through a few pages and it sounded interesting so I bought it. I started reading it that afternoon and couldn't put it down. I finished the entire thing in an evening. This book is a very candid look inside the minds of some particular "types" of men from a therapist who appears to genuinely care about helping them. One great thing about this book is that it is not written in a typical psychological text style, it is written more like a person sitting down and telling a friend about her experiences. The few psychological terms that are used are explained in common language and the concepts are made easy to understand. I would highly recommend this book to men and women as it contains a great deal of insight that can be of interest to everyone.

Loved it, couldn't put it down.  Interesting to see the inside of men's minds and what they think about behind closed doors. Writing style kept me interested as well. I hope she writes more books in the future!

Sometimes books of this sort can be a dense read but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it read more like a cohesive story than a bunch of long words and psychobabble. The characters are well developed and it has definitely given me insight to the male psyche. I highly recommend this book.

This book was written by a woman who has seen the many faces of what both sexs think of as love. She prvides some incite in to what both sexes are thinking and feeling.

On average I read zero books per year and was not overly thrilled when my therapist recommended it as "homework"; I read it in two days. I anticipated it would be a "self-help" book; it is anything but, while still being helpful. I have never felt the need to thank a stranger for something he or she has written, but Dr. Engler's book is the exception. I was surprised at how great of a read it was, while still being therapeutic. Dr. Engler gives a great first person account of helping patients with their struggles in love, life, and sex. As a man I found myself empathizing ( both good and bad) with each patient on some level. As a patient it is easy to forget that therapists deal with the same issues we do. As she helps those struggling with love, It is interesting to read about her own personal struggles. It is interesting to get a therapist's view from across the couch.
