Born in 1921 in Greensboro, North Carolina his father was a Pharmacist and World War I veteran with roots stretching back to early America. His mother was Jewish and his parents had met in Brooklyn in 1919 when his father who had served with his mother's brother stayed with him after they returned from overseas. The family had a comfortable middle class existence until the Great Depression when his father's drugstore went under. They moved back to Brooklyn where his mother's brother got his father a job in the Garmet Industry.
He attended college for several years and in 1942 just prior to his senior year enlisted in the Marines. Shortly thereafter he was wounded at Guadalcanal and discharged, returning to college for his senior year after recovering from his injury he fell in love with a young women whose husband was still fighting and they had a baby together. When the husband returned home he threatened violence against both of them unless he left. Dejected he went to Columbia University where he received his masters degree and PhD with his thesis being a case study of separation anxiety between couples during the war. He became a prominent figure in the New York intelligentsia and frequent lecturer. He maied again and had several more children, however was a frequent womanizer and was again divorced. He also wrote several best selling novels which received widespread literary praise. He began to gain a controversial reputation in the Psychological field though and eventually lost his license following a class action lawsuit from several dozen female patients claiming that he had caused them greater emotional distress. In the 1980s he became a prominent early speaker in the men's movement and wrote a series of essays critical of feminism which he claimed undermined basic human urges. In the early 90s he faced another lawsuit for copyright infringement and was nearly bankrupted but managed to get back in the public's favor with several more bestselling novels. Eventually he retired to Florida and has largely faded from the public eye though some of his works have gained a revived cult following on the internet in the past decade.
