Jim has worked in the human services field for 20 years. Having done so, he has developed a keen understanding of the differing ways both genders see the world they live in. Some of that time included working with men and women, as singles and couples, whose lives and families had been ravaged by alcoholism and drug addiction. Having been a single parent for several years, Jim can now add a personal level of experience to the insights he shares in this book. He is especially proud of his son and daughter and the human beings they have become in the world.
