Nancy Good is a practicing psychotherapist in New York City. She is a world renowned expert on relationship problems, and has appeared on numerous television and radio shows.From Publishers Weekly:
All men, according to psychotherapist Good (How to Love a Difficult Man), are difficult, but breaking up is usually not a woman's best option. Drawing on case studies from 16 years of clinical practice, Good describes the various types of difficult men, the three types of men women should leave (or avoid), how to break down barriers of fear, risks and rewards of speaking up, why anger is healthy, and the impact of family connections. Chapters 5-8 concentrate on getting through to the man who thinks he doesn't want children, and making him a better father after they arrive. While much of her counsel is common sense, Good seems to assume most men are willing to change if only their mate speaks up, and some of her advice is manipulative (eight ways to threaten to leave without really leaving). The possibility that a woman may be difficult as well is not addressed.
