About the Author:

Dr. Herb Goldberg, a practicing Los Angeles psychologist and professor emeritus at California State University, has written about the psychological dynamics of gender and relationships since the 1970 s. Using a psychodynamic perspective, he developed a theory of polarized gender defenses to make sense of the inexplicable in gender behavior. The Hazards of Being Male, an international best seller, was the first in a series of popular works on the subject that included The New Male, The New Male Female Relationship, The Inner Male, What Men Really Want, and the recent What Men Still Don t Know About Women, Relationships and Love. Understanding the unconscious elements of gender, Herb Goldberg believes, is a golden key for unlocking the mysteries of life s experiences, and he continues to dedicate his career and his prodigious energies to that pursuit.
