If you could sum up The Men on My Couch in three words, what would they be?
The best book in my library!!!
What did you like best about this story?
I could easily relate to the men being treated by Dr. Engler and her own relationship, for the first time ever I realized the reasons for my unexplained behavior with most of my past girlfriends and ex wife, but after listening to the audiobook most of it became clear and I'm no longer tormenting myself with unending questions of what went wrong and now I'm ready to pick up the pieces and truly love again.

Any additional comments?
While the author does go into the sexual behaviors and practices of her patients, it isn't excessively voyeuristic. Fundamentally, the book is about how a person's experiences as a child, teenager, and young adult can affect someone to such a degree that they can lead subconsciously to undesirable behavior. The author also provides a fairly rational hypothesis as to why those subconscious "wounds" are frequently manifested sexually in men.
This is not one of those "all men are dogs" books, and I felt sympathy for some of the patients -- but not all of them. The book gave me a look at men's sexuality from a different angle.
