Editorial Reviews

Why do some people seem incapable of forming lasting relationships? This audiobook argues that people who frequently find themselves in short, unsatisfying unions often have unexplored commitment issues they need to address. In firm but reassuring tones, performer Kevin Young presents the authors' findings, drawn from hundreds of interviews, which show relationship problems may be less about your partners and more about you. The authors also share helpful strategies to identify, understand, and resolve your issues so that you can be free to pursue the deep and sustained love you deserve.

Publisher's Summary

Available for the first time in audiobook, this follow-up to the phenomenally successful Men Who Can't Love tackles the issue of commitment phobia, that persistent obstacle to truly satisfying contemporary relationships.

Authors Stephen Carter and Julia Sokol explore why modern men and women are torn between the desire for intimacy and the equally intense need for independence. Drawing on numerous interviews and real-life scenarios, and written with humor, insight, and the kind of wisdom gained by personal experience, He's Scared, She's Scared offers guidance for all of us who want genuine, sustained intimacy with our romantic partners.

I definitely have commitment issues

The last half of this book was awesome the first half was pretty good too but I feel like there are too many stories. You could definitely get what you need out of this book by reading the last half of it.

it's eye opening for sure

A good book to understand why men leave out of the blue and help to cope with the fact that there is nothing you can do about it.
