WHY MEN LEAVE:
Men Talk About Why They Decided to End Relationships
by Brenda Shoshanna, Ph.D.

Publisher:  Putnam/Perigee Books

Description:  

This eye-opening report on modern relationships will change the way women think about men by revealing what men really think about women.

"What went wrong?" After a relationship ends--whether it's a twenty-year marriage or a promising romance that proves to be disappointingly fleeting--women ask this question, again and again. They ask themselves, their girlfriends, their therapists. In this revealing, intimate book, Brenda Shoshanna asks the men themselves--and provides some startling and enlightening answers. Drawing on hundreds of interviews, Shoshanna presents men's own words and perspectives to explore the varied reasons that relationships fall apart--and to provide insight into what can, and cannot, be fixed.
