They wrote the definitive book of the fear of commitment, Men Who Can't Love. They also coined the term 'commitmentphobia'. Now, drawing from in-depth interviews, as well as his own personal struggle with commitment, Carter takes the next step with this book, offering concrete solutions for finding and keeping long-term love. Falling in love and staying in love requires its own kinds of heroism. Our hearts have to be brave as well as loving. That is because it takes real courage to love; it takes real courage to make a commitment. This book is about finding that courage.
