What Men Don't Talk About
do men long for, agonise over, aspire to? Why is it men are often
silent in dark and dangerous, or difficult situations? Why do
so many men find it hard to express how much they care? What
do they look for in women? What do they want from committed relationships,
from friendships? What motivates them? What do they worry about?
How do they see their bodies, their world? What is life like
for them as they age? Why do so many resort to suicide?
Every day we read articles about men - men
at home, men at work, men in bed - but still the confusion and
frustration between the sexes remain. Can we put the differences
between men and women down to the influence of Venus and Mars,
or are there more intricate dynamics at play?

'The book is fantastic. I have been reading
it and it is so relieving to find out that other men go through
the same battles. I am a chiropractor, and one of the patients
that came into the clinic was talking about how she is reading
this book that is finally making her understand her son more,
as well as men in general..."What Men Don't Talk About"!' - Luke
'Congratulations on your fabulous new book
... It is such a well overdue story with so many insightful and
timely observations. It really made me think differently about
the whole male species, particularly after I read some of the
more vulnerable stories .... one such example being the male
longing for tenderness. You dealt with that issue so sensitively
and it touched me deeply.' - Tanya
'Thank you for your courageous ears, balanced
mind and grand spirit.' - John
'I'm very sad. It's been a long time since
I was cuddled ... I agree with you re men.' - Frank
