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. Over the years, his patients -- even those who
have had a string of failed relationships -- have expressed
deep desires for permanent, monogamous mariages.
So why do they behave as if they don't?
And what can a woman who wants a relationship do to help
her man commit?
While other therapists tend to be students of women, Dr.
Weinberg is a student of men. From childhood, most men have
been taught to be strong and silent, never to show
weakness. They've been discouraged from talking about their

In engaging prose filled with anecdotes we all can relate

wrong thing to do. Men have a powerful radar that tells
them to run away when any strategy is being used on them.
He explains why games of any kind -- playing hard to get,
making a man jealous -- will only push a man further from
commitment. And he gives women four simple keys to
understanding their man's real needs and helping them move
It is easy to scare a man, but it is also easy to capture
his love without playing games. Why Men Won't Commit shows
women how to enter places where her man has not allowed any
other woman to go and, if it's right, to stay there in a
loving, committed relationship.
