Editorial Reviews

Review

“Finally, here is a guide for freeing women who are ensnared unnecessarily in relationships that are emotionally abusive. A must read.” —John Gottman, author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work


“Women of all ages need to read this book! Beth brings a fresh approach to the topic and a compassionate voice, focusing on women’s empowerment and learning to trust ourselves, especially in relationships.” —Lisa Frederiksen, author of If You Loved Me, You’d Stop!

“Beth Wilson’s words fire with arrowlike precision to help women penetrate the layers of programming keeping them trapped in unhealthy relationships. This book is a true friend to women because it tells the truth.” —Elizabeth Diane & Andrew Marshall authors of Listening With Heart 360: Wisdom Women Have Forgotten

He’s Just No Good For You is a comprehensive, well-written book for women who will recognize themselves, their relationships, and their partners’ destructive patterns. The author knows her material, and offers hope and spiritual sustenance without judgment while nudging us to make better choices.”—Karen Fiester, Ph.D. Stanford University, Clinical Psychologist, 30+ years private practice focusing on women and relationships.

“Written with compassion and humor, He's Just No Good for You is a must-read for every woman who gets involved with the wrong kind of men. It's also a fun, and insightful, read for everyone else.”
-- Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and The Blade and The Real Wealth of Nations

“Beth brings to light the subtleties of how many of us have found ourselves to be in damaging relationships, not by knocking us over the head with bricks of “how could you NOT know” or laying blame that we brought this on ourselves, but gently lifting the fog that we’ve been living in by shedding light on all the little glimpses of a dark reality that we too easily have rejected as our imagination. The pain of acknowledging this reality is soften by Beth’s understanding and wisdom. She holds the belief and hope that we can learn from our experiences, trust ourselves to make better choices and journey towards a better life… and she gives us the tools to do so!” —Audrey L. White, MPH, Stanford University Research Coordinator, Health Educator, Nia Technique Instructor

He’s Just No Good For You is a unique approach to destructive relationships, providing much needed wisdom and insight for women who just aren’t certain what, exactly, is wrong when it comes to their intimate relationship. Beth extends a trusted hand to help these women find their way back to themselves; to find their way home.” —Judith London, Ph.D., author of Connecting the Dots: Hope for Advanced Alzheimer’s Patients, Clinical Psychologist specializing in Addictions Recovery and Alzheimer’s Disease

“A groundbreaking book, He’s Just No Good for You reassesses the basis for female relationships. By unpacking the characteristics of problematic individuals, Beth Wilson creates a roadmap that allows women to free themselves of destructive influences.” —Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Ph.D., Economist, Author, and Founding President of the Center for Work-Life Policy

"Beth Wilson uses her keen mind and alchemical skills to create concise formulas that help women distance themselves from toxic relationships that devalue and suppress them."

—Dr. Ramona P. Rubio, author of The Alchemical Woman: A Handbook for Everyday Soulwork.

"Beth Wilson has done a great service to womankind by bringing awareness to the damage done by controlling relationships and identifying the “red flags” which erode self image. Women don’t have to feel like they’re crazy or less then competent any longer. This book is a roadmap out of a toxic situation and onto a life of well-being, autonomy and joy!” — Barbara Scala, Transformation & Divorce Coach and co-author of Sanity Savers: Tips for Women to Live a Balanced Life

“Beth Wilson has spent a lifetime empowering women, and her newest book, He’s Just No Good For You, is a provocative triumph; daring to go where few authors do in exploring dysfunctions in relationships. Almost every woman reading this book can directly relate to her incisive profiles, or knows someone who does. Beth carefully weaves through a painful subject of abusive behaviors in men with raw honesty, sprinkled with humor, and clearly filled with a passion to help women find the inner strength to rise above their circumstances.”
—Kari Henley, Founder, GatherCentral

"As a psychotherapist, I was often shocked and saddened with the many forms of battering women accepted in their daily lives. We women seem satisfied and even grateful with what I came to call 'the absence of awful' in our relationships. In You're Just No Good For Me, Beth Wilson has done us
all a service in describing patterns, symptoms and syndromes and pointing ways to reclaim, restore and recreate ourselves. A must read."
—Anne Wilson Schaef, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of When Society Becomes An Addict, Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, Women's Reality, and Escape From Intimacy.

Format: Paperback
Unlike "Mark the Man," I do not belive that women who are in a destructive relationship should be blamed for "picking" the man. After all, many people (not just men!) don't show their true colors until much later in a relationship--which is exactly WHY this book is so valuable--it helps women recognize the warning signs that they are involved with a man who is, like the title says, just no good for them. For women who need help and answers and don't know where to turn, this book is a valuable resource.

Format: Paperback
Written in easy and accessible language, the ideas in this book are profound and powerfully insightful. I could see many situations that I've lived through with astonishing new clarity - like putting glasses on for the first time, noticing, "Wow! So THIS is what happened!" Not just for intimate relationships, this book is a must for women raising sons and women who work closely with men. I find myself much more skilled at recognizing dysfunctional behaviors in men as they appear, and now I don't take them so personally - or internally make excuses for them anymore. Now more discerning, I can now better recognize the blessed men who ARE genuinely kind, responsible and skilled in their relating to women. Of course, our popular culture powerfully reinforces (even normalizes) the destructive behaviors of the personality types identified so astutely in this book, as well as women having to tirelessly accomodate to them. Now with greater awareness, I am far more skilled at weeding out those "poor emotional investments"and focusing my energies on truly strong men. But warning - this is a book not to be read only once; it's one to keep handy for reference, as well as one to foist on your very best friends!

This book has helped me bring some clarity to a relationship that recently ended, but made me feel crazy during and after it. It's nice to know I'm not alone, and the book is an easy read that does not get boring at all. At times when I'm feeling down about my experience, I'll re read a chapter or 2 to get back into reality of what it was. I do recommend this book for anyone who is in an unhappy relationship (but maybe you can't pinpoint why), it will help.

Format: Paperback
While I am currently in a good relationship (thankfully), I found this book intriguing and very informative. It validated past suspicions and gave me insight into why I have chosen the life partner I have. The author's clear, no-nonsense and engaging style kept me interested while making the information approachable (so many "help you" books are tedious and repetitive -- not this one!). But most interesting to me was how the book's information applied to my relationships with other women as friends. I found similarities not just with men I have dated, but also in the unhealthy friend relationships I have experienced (I have learned from the author that emotional abuse is abuse whether from a "friend" or lover). It has brought me a clarity in recognizing destructive behavior no matter what the guise: man, woman, lover or friend. I recommend this book to anyone who is wondering about whether that lover or friend isn't all that they seem to be. Don't deny your gut feelings -- read this book and find out!

Format: Paperback
I loved He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys, and I love this book as a companion to it! It details more about the bad news guys you want to avoid. The author gives great profiles of the type of men you don't want in your life. I admit, I thought I was too smart to get sucked into a destructive relationship, but He's Just No Good For You helped open my eyes and showed me that he WAS just no good for me. It's easy to get manipulated by a guy, so every girl needs this book as a tool to help you move on to better relationships! IMO It's a book Bella Swan from Twilight should read! After reading this book I am happier with a new guy who treats me with respect always, not just when it's convienent for him.

This author definitely knows her stuff! Five stars!

He's Just No Good for you.
With compassion, directness and humor, author Beth Wilson provides HOPE by offering pragmatic steps toward a healthier life for the millions of women who find themselves entrenched in the quick sand of a destructive relationship. I highly recommend this book to every woman as a reminder that each of us can fall prey to our unconscious behaviors. Let's spread the word to our sisters, mothers, daughters, and girlfriends that He's Just No Good for You is a transformational book, a life- line encourging women to reach out for support and empowering them to heal themselves through the spirit of sisterhood.

Format: Paperback
At one time or another, women in all walks of life experience clever barbs and slices verbally inflicted by their boyfriends, husbands, mentors, employers. But in "He's Just No Good for You" Beth Wilson reveals the truly devastating nature these remarks can have; they seem so innocent, sometimes even funny. But men too often use them like death by a thousand cuts to dominate and manipulate the women in their lives. This must read book opens our eyes to this hidden malady and empowers women to overcome it.

~Sue Wilson, emmy winning journalist, Producer/Director "Broadcast Blues"
