Steven Carter and Julia Sokol's seminal relationship book offers a thorough, penetrating examination of the complex behavior and psychology of commitment-phobic males who, as stated in the book, can go from "attentive and caring to distant and hurtful for apparent reason".
Kevin Young's accomplished, measured performance reflects the high esteem with which these groundbreaking interviews and case studies are held in the field of relationship therapy, and his genial, conversational tone keeps the listener interested throughout this thought-provoking work.
The million-copy New York Times best seller and classic relationship book.
Featured on Oprah and Sally Jesse Raphael, this definitive look at the dynamics of male-female communication gets to the heart of the all-too-common phenomenon: women who are ready and willing to commit, and men who back off just as the relationship moves toward the next level.

I have never written a review on any book before, however, I highly recommend this book for anyone that has a habit of getting involved with men that come on very strong in the beginning to win you over and then decide that they don't want a serious committment. If you have been left confused by this in the past, believe me, this book will help you to see the signs of a committment phobic man from the very first date and help you to set the ground rules for the relationship right from the start. No more confusion or broken hearts for me. Now they play by my rules. And I can finally say that I can spot a player a mile away and know now what a healthy relationship is.This is seriously the best audiobook I have ever listened to and I am now buying the second book....He's Scared She's Scared. I will write a review on that one when I finish it.
True to life. To the point and helpful.
It served as preventive medicine for me and it was also healing.
Highly recommend it.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, I am on my second listen.
Attached. These books explain the personality traits of men who are incapable of loving truly and genuinely
Stay independent and don't trust too quickly or easily.
I wish I had heard this book sooner!
Insightful, helped me see what was really going on in my life and now I can truly let go because I can see that he is a commitment phobic and it wasn't me. I'm stepping off that roller coaster.
Hard to say, I have not read the print version.
Easy to understand and to relate to for a layperson, no lingo, no-nonsense. The content is compassionate and empathetic.
The narration is great, I thought it was the author who read the book.
Not any particular moment, but I do go back to it and listen to it again sometimes.
