The Invisible Presence: How a Man's Relationship with His Mother Affects All His Relationships with Women

Authors: Gurian, Michael

Publisher: Shambhala

ISBN: 9780834822467

Classification: Fiction

Synopsis: Whether he’s conscious of it or not, a man’s mother is the model for just about every relationship with a woman he has for the rest of his life. Sometimes it’s obvious (just ask his wife or girlfriend), sometimes it’s more subtle, but when you see it, it becomes crystal clear. For fifteen years, this book has helped men understand their mothers’ pervasive influence over the way they relate to women—both the positive and negative aspects of it. But more than that, it has helped thousands of men break free of old relationship patterns. Gurian gives men a wealth of practical exercises and meditations they can use to recognize their mothers’ influence in relationships, and to establish a healthy and rewarding new basis for relationships that will benefit themselves and the women in their lives as well.

This new edition of the book formerly titled Mothers, Sons, and Lovers includes a new preface and study questions by the author.
