From the Publisher

Fortunately, risky dating behaviors can be targeted and altered. Using checklists, exercises, and a direct approach honed in her workshops, Brown shows women how to choose partners wisely, avoid pain and danger, and improve their chances of hooking up with good men. How to Spot a Dangerous Man Before You Get Involved is for all women who have a history of bad relationships and want to regain control of their lives. It also serves as prevention for women who do not have a history of bad relationships — and don’t want one.

Sandy Brown has been in huge demand on television and radio programs across the country. She cares deeply about her readers and wants to help them.

This a fantastic book. This book is written is a no-nonsense style. Sandra Brown is factual, and plain spoken when it comes to dealing with dangerous men. Dangerous men look just like normal men, but they will only drag you emotionally and mentally downward. She describes plainly the different types of abuse, and how they make you feel. She also discusses what can be a chronic problem like depression, compared to a psychopath, who will prey upon you.

I like that she goes through your personal red flags, we all have them, but we often fail to recognize them. We fail to recognize red flags due to the way we were brought up. Often we have been taught how to be dsyfunctional in order to keep peace within the family unit.

Sandra Brown does an excellent job of describing what red flag are, how to recognize yours, and how to learn not to ignore them. She then guides you through recogizing what works for you personally, and what does not. She teaches about boundaries, and how you can develop some of your own.

This book is plainly written, and may seem a little harsh at times. If you have been in a relationship with a dangerous man, or are wondering if the man you are involved with is dangerous, this is definately worth the read. This book will aide you in determining which man you have, or what the next should be. I highly recommend this book!

As a pastor of a growing church I come into regular contact with women of all ages who have been struggling through one dysfunctional relationship after the other. In the past I would offer the best advice and encouragement that I could think of, but now with Sandra Brown's insightful new book I have the tools to help these ladies make wise choices. This book isn't just for the woman who can't seem to find 'Mr. Right'; this book is also for anyone who cares enough about these women to help them see and understand themselves and those they are drawn too! I now look forward to a possible sequel?? Maybe: 'How to Spot a Healthy Man?'

Format: Paperback
I was having trouble with my off and on boyfriend of 7 years when this book was reccomended to me. I knew he had some of the Red Flags, but I didn't realize how dangerous he really was until I seriously tried to leave him. I felt that Sandra really knew what I was going through and feeling when I read the other womens stories. Every time I said, yes but, she had an answer for me. I am now out of the relationship, am getting help with the law, and not listening to his lies and issues.If I had not read the book when I did, I may be here today to tell my story. I still have a long way to go, but I feel there is hope for me .

We all have to look to our past, to why we attract the men we do and her book makes you look at dating in a very selective light..Kudos!!

If you've ever wondered if you're the "crazy one," or why you seem to attract losers, this is a very insightful book.

This book opened my eyes to what a bad situation I was in, and just how bad it could end up. I always suspected that some of the guys I've dated had mental problems but would talk myself out of it. Now I see how important it is to trust these initial red flags and uneasy feelings. Even if your guy is not pathological, if you've got red flags and discomfort, this book wisely advises you to get out fast and why. The unfortunate thing about these dangerous men is that they are so charming, affectionate, intelligent, and desirable at first, that you are long-since hooked before the creep in them emerges. This book gives practical advice for how to recognize potential issues before you're hooked and his personality has changed.

For anyone who's skeptical, no, I did not think this was a male-bashing book or "any guy could fit into those categories." Not so. It even gives a list of traits to look for when analyzing whether yours is a healthy or unhealthy relationship.

It's a quick read and well worth it.

Format: Paperback
"How to Spot a Dangerous Man" should be read by every woman on the planet.

And it doesn't only pertain to woman, men could do well to read it, for there also are dangerous women out there.

This book shows the basic type of dangerous men, and how to spot them from the beginning, if you are paying attention. It also shows the reader examples from women who have dated or married dangerous men and how it affected their lives.

I simply cannot convey in words just how important this book is to women the world over at a time when 'dangerous men' seem to rule the planet.

A very important book, indeed!

Every responsible parent should be providing this book to their child, whether male or female. This is the street smarts they should have that society so carefully educates out of them. Discuss it with them. Provide your own experiences. It may be the best gift you ever give them. I would also recommend reading Barbara Hort's Unholy Hungers: Encountering the Psychic Vampire in Ourselves & Others along with it. It gives a more complete psychological picture of a "dangerous person" and what drives them.

Format: Paperback
True stories from women everywhere, examples of "red flags," and profiles of dangerous men make this book useful and interesting while cutting out most psychological jargon. It includes strategies for avoiding unhealthy relationships and lays out clearly what is and isn't acceptable in a healthy relationship.

A must-read for anyone ready to stop make bad dating choices and start building a healthy relationship with a healthy person.This book puts the power to change back in the woman's hands.
