– What Men Really Think of Their Relationships: Challenging Conventional
Are men really commitment-phobic? Do they refuse to talk about their
relationships? Are they really obsessed with sex? Neil Chethik conducted
a landmark study of 350 American husbands and shares his surprising
answers to these and other questions about men and relationships. Neil
also shares what men told him about why they do (or don't) seek
psychotherapy, and what styles of therapy work best for them.
BIO: Neil Chethik is an author, researcher, and speaker specializing in
men's lives and family issues. He is the author of two books:
VoiceMale: What Husbands Really Think
About Their Marriages, Their Wives, Sex, Housework and Commitment
(Simon & Schuster 2006), and
FatherLoss: How Sons of All Ages Come To Terms With the Deaths of Their
Dads (Hyperion 2001). His writings have appeared in hundreds
of print and web publications. He is currently Writer-in-Residence at
