What's He Really Thinking?

What’s He Really Thinking?
By Paula Rinehart
I wanted to read the book What’s He Really Thinking? by Paula Rinehart because I desired a deeper understanding of how females relate to men. In this book, Paula Rinehart offers an in-depth study and guide for women on the male psyche.
Paula Rinehart uses her more than 20 years experience as a counselor and scientific research to help unlock the male mind-set. She helps readers understand that men’s ways are different and yet complimentary to women ways of experiencing the world.
Paula offers categories that describe the emotional and psychological neighborhoods that men live in and explains that a man may be a combination of two of them. Each category has an upside and a downside. She states that each man is created to bless and bring life and yet there are cracks in the pot, broken places that bring pain. She explains how a mans father carries special weight in determining if he is “man enough” and effectively receives his diploma in masculinity through his acceptance.
Paula relates men’s need for respect and intimacy. She explains how conflict in a close relationship has much to be gained if you think of disagreement as an extended dialogue. She states that empathy, for most men is a slowly learned skill and does not come naturally.
Paula states that it is God who reveals himself in a mystery so great it takes two genders to even give us a peek. I appreciate her experience and her sharing what she has learned in all her years of counseling. This book has helped me to understand better the differences between men and women in relationships and how I can respond in ways that will draw my relationship closer rather than alienate and drive away.
This book gives you the information you need to understand what men really want in a relationship and what women can do to understand her man more intimately.
