This is a TIMELESS book that will help all women that are so adept in other areas of their lives become SMART with dignity, authenticity, and self respect, as you learn to honor yourself, as well as honor a relationship worth keeping, or leaving.
I bought this book when it first came out. The pages are now golden yellow, and I recommend this book for the golden advice and practical wisdom that any smart woman can use if you have been in one painful relationship after another. A great book to re-read as you learn and grow in relationships. This is an outstanding book to help you honor yourself and uncover patterns that have caused you pain, while you learn how to bring out authenticity within yourself and the man you are with.

Until I read this book I did not realise that I had emotional needs I was expecting another person to meet. These needs overpowered my judgement when chosing the right guy. I also had misconceptions on what a good relationship was supposed to be like. I thought feeling anxious was normal.
This book helped me figure out why I felt the way I did for many years, and now I have control of my life. As I read the book I felt lots of excitement, because I was discovering that things can be different, and this was the knowledge that would lead me to a happier life.
I would really like to thank the authors for enlightening me, and for their empathetic tone.
Examples on how to change would have been very helpful.
The authors of this book are taking advantage of beliefs they have found to be common among many women who are most likely to read a book like this one; rather than providing any kind of useful or unique advice, the authors merely are capitalizing on stereotypical beliefs that many (but not all) women have developed towards men in response to negative experiences with them. Any woman with an ounce on intellect would reject this book or at the very least render it as useless; it does not tell a smart woman anything she doesn't already know or anything she couldn't deduce for herself. The ideas are laughably simplistic and linear, and the generalizations made about both men and women are so vague that they become meaningless.
Please, ladies... redundant and simplistic books like this are not beneficial to anyone with half a brain. Most laughable is the "are you love addicted?" quiz...I could not stop myself from laughing out loud when reading these ridiculously redundant, over-simplified and stereo-typically boring claims being presented in such a serious manner. How could anyone take this book seriously? If you answered "yes" to even one of the questions in that quiz you need to stop reading relationship advice books and start reading self help books.
