I underlined, highlighted, and wrote, on just about every page of this book (most of the words were, YEP, ALWAYS and Excellent Info!)...it was Very Informative. I NOW have the tools to deal with my fool!
She gave alot of really GREAT advice. The one I appreciate most,"It is IMPOSSIBLE to correct, change, alter, redifine, censure, sweet-talk,or reason with a fool! ....Wisdom MUST become MY goal, and my hope. It MUST be my safe haven and my delight!"
For 10 years I've have had no ability to express an opinion, a thought, or a concern without being shut down (Jan calls it being re-defined) by my fool. Wondering why I lived with so much strife, chaos , unrest. I could never pin-point the problem. I tried everything, until I read this book. I am no longer captive to the image that he wants me to be.
If you think, even remotely, that you are living, working or have a relationship with a fool, you gotta get this book and read it thoroughly, you will be so relieved, that they are in God's hands, and you are only responsible for your reactions (GOD will help you every step of the way) to your fool!
Just as everyone else has mentioned...,"It saved my life!" I can truly say the same thing.
APPLY her tools she gives you, they are biblical and helpful for how you deal with your fool. It's totally worth your sanity!
This book provides practical advice for avoiding losers. The author thoughtfully helps readers to look ahead and avoid people who are likely to hurt them.
For people who are married to a loser it has ideas about how to handle the situation. Important and practical ideas...

I felt transformed as I read the first half or so of this book. I knew I'd changed since I'd left my fool/abuser, but I couldn't get a grasp on why, or what to do about it. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sherrie
Even though 3/4 of the book is focused on what a fool is...that part of the book is important - It ties God's word together at the end when she talks about 'how' to disengage. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Terri Brosseau
