What Women Want
Maxine Mei-Fung Chung
Published: 9th February 2023 After thirty years of research, Sigmund Freud still felt the great unanswered question was: ‘What does a woman want?’ Fifteen years into her own journey as a psychotherapist, Maxine Mei-Fung Chung believes her collaboration with her patients holds the answers. Through the profound and moving stories of seven very different women, Maxine Mei-Fung Chung sheds light on women's' most fundamental needs and desires. From a young bride-to-be struggling to accept her sexuality, to a mother grappling with questions of identity and belonging, and a woman learning to heal after years of trauma, What Women Want is an electrifying and deeply intimate examination into the inner lives of women. Based on hours of conversations between Maxine and her patients, this book lays bare women's' fears, hopes, secrets and capacity for healing. With great empathy and precision, What Women Want presents a fearless look into the depths of who we are, so that we can better understand each other and ourselves. To desire is an action. This extraordinary book liberates and empowers women to claim what they truly want. Publisher: Penguin ISBN: 9781529151114
