Smart women – foolish choices: Finding the right men, avoiding the wrong ones

Why is it that so many bright, successful, interesting women end up with the wrong men? In this fascinating new book, clinical psychologists Dr. Connell Cowan and Dr. Melvyn Kinder, who have more than sixteen years’ experience in private practice listening to both women and men, reveal the surprising answers. They offer much-needed insights and advice for a growing number of “smart” women who have everything going for them but satisfying personal relationships.

Despite the popular myth that there aren’t enough “good” men around who want long-term relationships with women, Dr. Cowan and Dr. Kinder assert that most men do want to commit; women what to get married. The real problem is much more complex.

In Part 1 of the book, “Being Foolish”, the authors describe how smart women are almost magnetically drawn to the wrong men for a number of subtle yet powerful reasons. Unrealistic expectations about relationships, conflicts over the need for independence and the desire to be taken care of by a man, and a lack of understanding of the male psyche are some of the causes of frustration and disappointment in love.

In Part 2, “Getting Smart”, Dr. Cowan and Dr. Kinder outline the specific ways women can open up new opportunities with men and make their relationships happier. They show women how to let go of the expectations that can ruin relationships, understand hidden male needs, recognize the men who truly may be “diamonds in the rough”, and, finally, understand what really causes men to fall in love.

Smart Women/Foolish Choices is a book every woman should read to discover an entirely new way of looking at men, relationships, and the possibilities for lasting fulfillment with the opposite sex.
