The Peter Pan Syndrome book. In 1984, Dan Kiley collected his experiences as a counselor and formulated a theory that to this day is still valid and renown all over the world. The Peter Pan Syndrome" explains step by step how young boys can get lost in the process of growing up and how certain family dynamics facilitate the choice of flying to Neverland and never grow up.

Peter Pan syndrome is an inability to grow up or to engage in behaviour usually associated with adulthood. The term comes from the fictional children's character Peter Pan, who never ages. While it is more commonly attributed to men, it can affect women as well. The concept gained popularity through Dr. Dan Kiley (psychoanalyst) in his book The Peter Pan Syndrome: Men Who Have Never Grown Up first published in 1983

Psychologist Dan Kiley coined the term Peter Pan syndrome in his 1983 book, Peter Pan Syndrome: Men Who Have Never Grown Up. Kiley worked with troubled teenage boys. He found that many grew into adult men who struggled to accept adult responsibilities. Some characteristics of Peter Pan syndrome might include: Chronic unemployment or underemployment.

In 1983 psychologist Dan Kiley released the book The Peter Pan Syndrome: Men Who Have Never Grown Up which popularized the term Peter Pan in pop culture, identifying it with someone who is socially immature and acts like a famous name-fellow character. Immaturity of such a person can reveal itself in many aspects of life, starting from the inability to take responsibility or care of another, working only pleasurable jobs, never committing to anything or anyone, to not being able to physically take care of oneself, like doing laundry or cleaning the house

I am Peter Pan. He represents youth, childhood, never growing up, magic . It would be best for you to stay away from men who have this personality

I am Peter Pan. He represents youth, childhood, never growing up, magic, flying. He never experienced playing as a kid, having sleepovers, or went trick or treating. It would be best for you to stay away from men who have this personality. So, here are the 17 signs to save you from trouble: 1. He can’t decide by himself. The man with the Peter Pan syndrome lives immaturely and sooner or later, you will end up with an unappealing guy who thinks he is a spry young man. 9. His friends are a bunch of boys who can’t grow up either. Birds of the same feathers flock together, and when they flock together they fly so high.

Argues that many men have trouble dealing with responsibility, and behave childishly, and tells how to help them reach emotional maturity

I read the book and liked it, because I dated a Peter Pan for years! I finally woke up and realized what kind of man I was dating and got rid of him!!!! My cousin married a Peter Pan and I sent this book to her for her birthday. My cousin is realizing what kind of man she married and what she needs to do, to fix the marriage or get out of it! So if you are dating or married to a mommy's boy and he doesn't want to grow up!!!! You need to read this book! Life is too short to have to put up with a man like that!!!!

The men described in this book have become a well-documented phenomena at this point, but it's still very interesting to read the book that started the debate. I've read it twice; the first time, I was in a relationship with a Peter Pan but staunchly refused to see that the book described him to a fault. I reread it about a year after we'd parted company and was amazed at how blind I had been. I would have liked to see more than just description... perhaps some advice for how to relate to/ successfully deal with these men in relationships or the workplace, but it's a fascinating read, all the same.

A classic look into the heart of a classic problem. This author approaches the subject from a wide range of perspectives with everything from case histories to the psychological aspects. Addressing both "Peter" and his emotional hostages, he makes his point, but not without suggestions or potential solutions to those in need. His format & style of writing makes it easy to turn the pages. The only draw back is, reader has to factor in the social changes since initial publishing in order to really digest the concept and goal of Dr. Kiley. I've been reading reviews that complain about the lack of a clear cut remedy or a quick fix. I can understand where someone might have difficulty in this area. The text goes on to explain that every case and every one is different, thus making any blanket assessments or solutions would be impossible. If you reread, you'll find your answers laced in throughout much of contents. I am doing research on this subject and have found "The Peter Pan Syndrome" to be a very good source in spite of the 32 year gap between1st publication and today. 1983 seems like a whole other world, but If you think you may know "Peter" then proceed to checkout. Also,in making your decision for purchase, consider the gender of the negative reviewer!!! This is not meant as an insult, just an observation.

Every man needs to read this because they all have some little boy in them, just some too much more than others! This book will help them to choose to grow up, even if they are seniors. The mere fact that they would read it shows there is hope! lol As for their women, once you read this ladies, you will most likely stop babying men and let them show their strong masculine sides all by themselves. That is of course if you can handle it!

Not only this book describes in great details how to recognize peter pan in your life, it also shows how men become victims of this syndrome and how women in their lives nurture victim's behavior. The book contains chapter with a guide to help a victim...but as we all know change happens from within--so unless the victim is really serious about changing his ways (actually taking steps to amend his behavior not just recognizing that something is wrong) the change won't happen, especially if we are talking about peter pan.

amazing that someone has put this idea of this disorder to paper. its what ive been perplexed about in life experiences with husband. this book is a godsend but also makes for painful truths and reading. you must be ready to accept and read this. half way through and i know i will be reading it again. dont judge a book by its cover, the information contained within is priceless !!!

This is a great read with lots of pertinent insights into terminally immature men. It helped me greatly after dealing with one of these creatures, and has been very valuable in helping to weed these creeps out before I get involved with them! :)
Yup, definitely helped me identify my Peter Pan.
