When a Woman Is in an Emotional Tug-of-War for Her Man's Heart

Why can't he commit? Many women find themselves asking this question when in love with a man who won't get married, won't stop womanizing, or refuses to give up his sex addictions.

O carte despre baietii cocolositi de mame atat in copilarie, cat si in viata adulta. O carte despre consecintele limitelor netrasate intre mama si fiu, limite care influenteaza puternic relatiile cu femeile din viata adultului. De la control-freaks in relatii la servili si submisivi, de la afemeiati la anorexici sexual, modul in care se face si se desface legatura cu mama este un pilon care joaca un rol important in maturizarea emotionala a barbatului.

Interesting book. I wasn't overly impressed with the author, but the concepts he presented make sense.
