About the Author

Dr. Nowinski is an associate adjunct professor of psychology at the University of Connecticut. He was formerly an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, where he was director of clinical services and training for the human sexuality program. In that capacity Dr. Nowinski worked intensively with men, women, and couples on the most intimate aspects of relationships. This work also led to two books. Men, Love, and Sex (Thorsons Publishing Group, 1990) was originally published as Becoming Satisfied: A Man's Guide to Sexual Fulfillment by Prentice-Hall in 1980. A Lifelong Love Affair: Keeping Sexual Desire Alive in Your Relationship was published as a hardcover by Dodd, Mead in 1988, and in 1989 as a paperback by W. W. Norton.

Format: Paperback
What stood out for me in this book, "Stop Dating Jerks" is, that it was easy to read, and hard to put down. I think the way Dr. Nowinski broke down the sections, articulating the good and bad characteristics of his six categories of men, made it a much different experience of finding a partner. The way this book describes relationships, is not to set a trap, to go out hunting, to feel trapped, but from the persepective of the woman. There are distinctions between what is a characteristic that can be worked around or compromised with, or one to stay clear of! To be able to recognize that women have qualities that are special, and aren't defined by someone else's yardstick. For me, I feel this book is for women to be more introspective and to define what we bring to the table. We are just as much a voice of being in a partnership, and not beholden, or waiting for someone to validate us. It is important to realize that we do have choices, and sometimes as emotional beings, we choose options that may not be the best for us. What I liked best about this book were the examples, and the criteria that is broken down, to help make chooses that are more healthy. I really liked that there were actual check lists, to further explore what is workable, and what is not. Also, it is the consequences that can occur when certain factors aren't taken into accoount. Dr. Nowinski not only gives the examples of what happens when careful thought doesn't see the red flags at the beginning, but he carries the scenerio full circle. As a reader, this is very insightful, and powerful information to use in real life.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is out in the dating field, whether single, just single, divorced, and wanting to be equipped with questions and self-examination as to what makes us happy and healthy people. This is written by a man, but very much in tuned with a woman's psyche.

As a Psychologist working with adolescents I found this book not only personally intriguing but easily adapted to helping my clients see "red flags" and deal with adolescent relationship disappointments. Dr. Nowinski's writing is both engaging and informative. I would strongly suggest this book to anyone who has ever had their "heart broken" and especially those who need to pick themselves up and start looking in the right direction! Bravo Dr. Joe!

Thank you doctor! At last a self-help book that I can recommend to my granddaughters with some hope of them having success in their relationships.

No amount of advice or nagging from me can carry the weight of Dr. Nowinski's waning signs and checklists.

Any woman using this book as a guideline will have a much better chance at a rewarding relationship because the answers are there! Short,Real, and True.

Excellent book and so very insightful. I read this in a day. After two failed marriages and finding myself in a current relationship that has a lot of red flags, I decided to see what this author had to say. Wow. Granted, my gut already told me the problems I have in choosing men, but this book confirmed it. I could see myself in the number of example cases the author details and the inventory sections for each character trait are enlightening to say the least. The book outlines specific types of men - Narcissists, Controllers, Addicts, Predators, Bums and those with Insecurity complexes. The author helps you pinpoint how much of these traits your partner has and if it's enough to cause a serious problem in your relationship. Like I stated before, incredibly insightful and a book I will refer back to often.
