Oprah called the best-selling Why Men Are the Way they Are “one terrific book.” The New York Post called it, “the best book ever written on love, sex and intimacy.” Dr. Warren Farrell brings insights into men and women that has led the Financial Times to select him as one of the world’s top 100 Thought Leaders.
Unlike most thought leaders, Dr. Farrell translates his ideas to the average person—leading to his being interviewed repeatedly by not only Oprah, but also Barbara Walters, Larry King and on more than 1000 TV and radio shows.
Why Men Are the Way they Are is what women don't know about men–and men don't know about themselves. It derives from real-life experience—Dr. Farrell trains therapists in couples communication and has started more than 300 men and women's groups (joined by men from John Lennon to John Gray).
