Show synopsis When you're desperately trying to communicate with your partner and you can't, it's easy to start seeing your whole relationship unravel. It has been more than forty years since women across the western world began to realise their equality and recover a sense of integrity. Now empowered, they insist on levels of relational skills from their spouses which men have never understood or been prepared to deliver. Women complain about how hard it is to get men to communicate, resulting in them feeling shut out and men feeling misunderstood. Society also exerts its own traditional pressures and expectations on each gender. The consequence has been devastating for both men and women, leading to what Real calls a 'toxic masculinity' that can cause men to ravage partnerships through a legacy of drinking, womanising, depression, fury, rage and violence. 'How Can I Get Through to You?' shows that it is possible to overcome the most impenetrable conditioning to emerge into deeply rewarding relationships. It will find an eager readership among both men and women who are concerned about their ability to relate to one another and who are prepared to do something about it.
