Accurately understanding men will revolutionize how women approach romance, attests Psychologist Dr. Kathryn Foster, in her bold work, ‘The Naked Truth About Men (And Romance.’) Women have struggled to figure out “what happened” to the man she married. All of a sudden, he is distant, unresponsive, and unable to communicate and romance like he did when they were courting. Understanding is the key to dispelling the “crazy making” emotions and feeling the need to “fix” something. Everyone wins when blaming is transformed to understanding and she begins communicating using this knowledge. Never before have women been positioned to so radically change the world. It all begins with women’s shifting their expectations of romance.
Fort Worth, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- From hormones to brain structure, women and men differ. The author explains how testosterone, lesser empathy, and being a “systemizer” affect men in romances. A psychologist, Dr. Foster balances thought-provoking stories from her practice with fascinating research findings to illustrate ‘The Naked Truth About Men (And Romance.’)
In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Foster gives voice to the many women who suffer silently in relationships, a staggering two thirds of whom initiate all divorces. Men, too, will be enlightened: they are the ones dumbfounded, thinking all is well because she’s stopped complaining, when actually, she’d given up long ago.
This provocative book presents the low down on men and how their fundamental mojo differs from women and affects romance. Why has the term "the opposite sex" survived despite those who worked hard to prove that the genders are alike? Because her oxytocin and his testosterone promote opposite behaviors and attitudes.
Many books have been written to help women in relationships, but none like this. It contains truths that won't launch you into stomach butterflies and magical thinking, but will help you build your life with honesty.
Rich in anecdotal material from a psychologist's private practice, the reader will experience glimpses into the inner workings of romantic relationships.
One chapter is devoted to what a woman can actually and specifically expect from a man. This includes understanding his main source of connection, how he communicates for different reasons than she does, why conflict is threatening to him but not her, and how his personal growth will look different than hers.
“Women aren’t done rustling the social order yet,” Foster concludes. As they come to terms with the truth about men and the dilemma female-male relationships pose, they are breaking away from former mores to find something new. “This sea change will strike at the soul of romance and how females and males couple.”
Since its release, the book has garnered rave reviews, calling it “compelling,” saying “age-old questions are explored and answered,” that the book gives “concrete tools.” Psychotherapist Dawn Maybeck says, “I can see relief in people when they hear the truth.” Another says, “The part about the impact our hormones play is significant and totally shocked me the first time I learned of it,” and finally, “Dr. Kathryn Foster has incredible insight into the male psyche.”
Dr. Foster has some parting words of wisdom for those considering her book, “Having female hormones and brain structure is about more than the capacity to supply breast milk. It’s about values: tolerance, relationship closeness, being genuine, seeing the big picture, and nurturing everything from Planet Earth to a new style of politicking. The rise of the feminine will bring the values we need now.”
