The way the sexual revolution and the women's movement has affected women has been well documented in the last two decades. But what have these movements done to men? For 20 years, over 100,000 men and women have experienced the other sex's point of view in Dr. Farrell's workshops. As a result, he has new theories about the reasons love, intimacy and commitment mean different things to women and men; what makes people successful at the office but unsuccessful at home; when a discussion between a man and a woman is helpful and when it is harmful; and how men are much less 'powerful' than was ever thought possible. Here is the book for every woman who wants to understand the men in her life - and for every man who wants to understand himself.
