Editorial Reviews

Review

 "Debra Weiner has written an encyclopedia all about decoding male behavior. It is wonderfully written, wise, and enlightening."

--Margo Howard, "Dear Margo" for Creators Syndicate and wowowow.com

From the Author

I have just completed writing a book, How to Recognize Your Future Ex-Husband.

The idea for this book came about during a conversation I had with a former therapist when we were talking about how prevalent the rationalization process was among women we knew. This led to her sharing a story with me about a friend of hers who had recently called to tell her all about a new relationship and how she had found "the one." After politely listening to her friend speak almost exclusively in superlatives (based on four weeks of dating), she said, "Congratulations. I think you have just met your future ex-husband." I was so enthralled by the phrase that I began to work on a project that would evolve into this book.

I am often asked to summarize the essence of How to Recognize Your Future Ex-Husband and my answer is always the same: understanding the rationalization process.

It is my personal belief that the "R" word is responsible for so many of our choices when it comes to romantic relationships (and life in general). We need to make sense of what we do and why we do it. But where it becomes sticky is when we absolutely know that we are heading down the wrong path but continue to do so despite our internal GPS telling us otherwise.

For many years I had been in pursuit of partnership prior to getting married almost a decade ago. While I am not a trained therapist, I have worked with many gifted professionals throughout most of my life who have helped me to understand why I accumulated so many disappointing relationships. To me, this is analogous to being a good cook who has acquired her culinary acumen simply by spending a great deal of time in the kitchen.

I hope this book promotes better discrimination between behaviors that are meaningful and predictive and those that are not. Consider using it to illuminate whatever path you have chosen to get you there as safely and soundly as possible.

I picked this up for fun and was surprised at how insightful and though provoking the book was. A great read....you'll experience a whole range of emotions and are sure to learn something you hadn't thought of before. Definitely read this book if you want to learn more about a relationship you are in and more importanly if you want to learn what kind of relationship you have with yourself.

If only I'd read this a few years and a few men earlier....Debra has a gift with language that creates a visceral experience. She's like having a best girlfriend and therapist all rolled into one. Her advice is sage and her willingness to take off her "blinders" and share openly with other women is admirable. Don't go on one more date or stay one more day in a relationship that in your heart you question, without reading Debra's book.

Format: Paperback
Most dating books glaringly lack any kind of psychological insight, and focus on how the woman can capture the man, rather than on evaluating the health of the relationship. This is the rare exception. I read it now for interest as a happily married person, but it could have helped me a lot when I was single!

I read this while in the process of getting divorced and well...
it was a bit close for comfort!!!! It was enlightening and fun to
read this edgy yet compassionate book while truly in the thick of it.
Ms. Weiner's honesty and insight made this book hard to put down.
Authenticity is never boring!

I loved this book. Whether you laugh or cry (and you'll probably do both), you can't help but pick up some fresh insights on your own behavior and the actions of others. The author's honest, hard-hitting advice is offered up in sisterly fashion--she's not afraid to put it out there and share the good, the bad, and the ugly with her readers.

The bottom line: Before applying for a marriage license, read this book and gaze into Ms. Weiner's crystal ball. You just might see a future ex-husband staring out...
