In last year’s smash hit 'The Conversation', Emmy-nominated actor and bestselling author Hill Harper tackled one of the most controversial subjects between men and women: our lack of communication. And, judging by the overwhelming response—consecutive stints on both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal bestseller lists and jammed packed events everywhere from Los Angeles to Atlanta—it’s clear that this is a Conversation that is long overdue.
Harper sparks a dialogue, which, in turn, brings a variety of issues out of the shadows in 'THE CONVERSATION: How Men and Women Can Build Loving, Trusting Relationships' (Gotham Books, September 7, 2010; $15.00). Harper speaks to women and men with a clear-eyed perspective, covering such topics as:
The roots of the breakdown in the family
Bridging the communication gap
The difference between sex and intimacy
Harper also discusses gender specific issues such as:
What men can do to break the cycle of being a “player”
The myth that there are no mature, single male professionals
What women can do to alleviate the “heaviness” they sometimes attach to dating
Self-worth and net worth, and why you should never settle for an unworthy partner.
Sharing stories from couples in all stages of relationships – from the throes of new love to 50-year long marriages, Harper dissects what goes wrong, and what can go right, in the relationships we have today.
