Understanding the Tin Man: Why So Many Men Avoid Intimacy
Why are men so afraid of showing their feelings? What scares men about commitment? With the same practical wisdom he used in Brothers, Lust, and Love, William July II tackles these age-old questions, shrewdly revealing secrets that every woman wants to know about her man, and that every man needs to know about himself. He explains how boys are conditioned to become emotionally closed-off "Tin Men" (a term he borrows from The Wizard of Oz character who was searching for a heart), leaving them ill-prepared to share their feelings or participate fully in relationships. Taking a realistic, down-to-earth approach, July goes on to provide workable ways for men to change and for women to help the men in their lives overcome the Tin Man syndrome.

A compelling and informative book (reminiscent of Barbara De Angelis's Secrets About Men Every Woman Should Know -- but written by a man), "Understanding the Tin Man" is a much-needed voice of reason in the battlefield of the sexes.
