An irresistible message for women


If someone told you that you could have better, more meaningful communication with your partner, hug him without his thinking sex was imminent, get him to become more involved with the kids, or even realize that, unlike the oven, the house isn't self-cleaning, wouldn't you want to know how? Of course you would. Well, Michele Weiner-Davis is about to let you in on her secrets.


Drawing on more than two decades of experience in helping couples make their relationships great and using her own twenty-something year old marriage as a testing ground for her techniques, Weiner-Davis explains:

- women's biggest "beefs" about men

- why blaming, nagging, and talking about feelings don't work

- why action-oriented methods are infinitely more effective

- how to talk so men will listen


Most important, Weiner-Davis shows how every woman can become an expert at getting her man to be more responsive to the things she wants and needs in their relationship. So, if you've been at the end of your relationship rope and you're ready to let go of the line, hang in there . . . solutions are right around the corner.
