Dr. George Weinberg has been a therapist for over twenty-five years. In that time, he has worked with a great range of men, and he has discovered that deep down, men actually want commitment, love, and permanence every bit as much as women do.

George Weinberg’s been analyzing men for over 25 years. He’s discovered, through work with his therapy patients, that men want “commitment, love, and permanence every bit as much as women do.” Guess what other conclusion he’s come to? Men want permanent monogamous marriages, but apparently they act like jerks and behave as if they don’t. Blame it on a culture that discourages men from revealing their feelings; a culture that perpetuates the myth that the ideal man is the strong, silent type.

I was reluctant to purchase this when I first saw it sitting in a three dollar clearance rack at the local bookstore. I actually left it on the shelf that first day with this silly fear that, should I carry it up to the counter for purchase, I would automatically be dubbed this sketchy, co-dependent woman who was adding more ammo to her mental manipulation of men shelf. I would have had an easier time, I supposed, purchasing lesbian erotica than any self help book. I drove back to the store the ...more

Meh - I wanted to read more male psychology and I thought this would be more on how to get a man to commit or what makes a man commit. Written by a man, this is more on how women should love and commit to men over direct advice on getting a man to commit. The first part says to have sex "sooner than later" and the last chapter seems to be the shortest (LOL) reminding women to "stay true to themselves." Worth a browse for those soul searching to find some simple male psychology patters, but bewar ...more

This was recommended to me because it's not a pop-psychology handbook to catching a man. It's a thoughtful and well-researched book about the psychology of men. Considering that most marriage and family counselors are women, having the perspective of a male counselor was incredibly eye-opening. Even if you're in a healthy and happy relationship, this book helps women deal with fathers, male employers, and friends.

The most sensible relationship book I've ever read. The interpretation of what men's behavior actually fits what I've observed and offers more in depth understanding of what matters to men and the things they can't verbalize. This one's a keeper.

I read this book because I was curious to know this psychologist's perspective on men's ability to be noncommital. hm.
