From wet towels on the bathroom floor to carelessness with money or outright abuse, the frustrations of women with immature partners are viewed here as genuine problems to be solved by better communication. The guide's two-part message is that change takes two people—and that it is perfectly reasonable to expect an erring partner to grow up and start acting like an adult. Forty-one scenarios are provided to show women how to maximize communication and what to do when it fails.

"Boys will be boys: we have heard it—and even said it—to let men off the hook. But as Betty McLellan shows, it's not good for boys, for men, for women—or for society—to make such excuses. It's in everyone's interest that men are held responsible for their own bad behavior."   —Dale Spender, author, Man Made Language"What makes this book unique is that it does not follow the usual formula, but offers a different way of looking at relationship dynamics combined with practical ways to try to solve the problems."  —Ruchama Marton, MD, psychiatrist and coauthor, Torture: Human Rights, Medical Ethics, and the Case of Israel"With a mixture of sensitivity and humor, McLellan puts forward some thoughtful strategies to help men understand the difference between mumbled promises of future help and solid action."  —The Sunday Times
