Men in the Millennium have found themselves on the receiving end of mixed signals. Mixed signals from the media, society and even from the women in their lives who love them. During their journey from childhood to adulthood, they were taught and expected to be strong and tough-minded individuals capable of making tough decisions, protecting their family and loved ones, and creating and implementing plans that would move their families forward. Somewhere along the line, things got a little twisted. Men found themselves being portrayed by the media as being insensitive to the needs and feelings of the women in their lives, incapable of nurturing and loving their children -- and depending on what television sitcom you watched – incapable of thinking and making tough decisions. And some Men felt that the women in their lives were not always clear about what they wanted or expected from them. If you are a Man and you are feeling slightly perplexed, frustrated and confused about what the woman in your life expects from you, you are not alone. Being The Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom On Being A Man authored by MR. ELLIOTT KATZ is an empowering and timely work that will help Men sift through the mixed signals that you feel are being sent in your direction.
So what do women want from Men?
According to Mr. Katz who is a professional speechwriter and the author of seven non-fiction books, women want to look up to men . . . to admire men. Women want strong men. In Being The Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom On Being A Man, Katz says that women want a man who knows what he wants. He cautions that if men are always trying to please women, the end result is that they do not please women at all. Katz goes on to say that women want Men who are proactive in family matters. They want Men who not only provide for the financial needs of the family, but Men who also nurture, discipline and mentor the children. Katz says that Women “test” the Men in their lives to determine how strong they are and whether they have “back bone”. This test could come in the form of women consistently insisting on having things their way. If the Men “give in” to the women’s demand during this “test”, women interpret this “giving in” as a signal that the Men in their lives will not and cannot protect them. Conversely, if Men do not “give in” to the demands of the women in their lives, the women will interpret this response as a signal that the Men in their lives can and will protect them.
Being The Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom On Being A Man tells men that there’s nothing wrong with being strong . . . that there is nothing wrong with a man taking leadership and that a Man can lead without being controlling. He also points out that it is imperative that Men know what is going on in the lives of their wives and children. So, how do Men find out what is going on in the lives of their wives and children? By listening to them and asking them questions about activities in their lives. Katz urges Men to ask their wives and children about what they are thinking and feeling. This will lead to Men knowing when to “take charge of a situation and find solutions.”
Although Being The Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom On Being A Man was written with men in mind, its message is genderless. Katz, through Being The Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom On Being A Man, is creating “drama-free” male-female relationships and strengthening families. Being The Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom On Being A Man is a “must read” book for men – and women.
