So far I have read a plethora of relationship books and this one is at the top of my list. It's a quick read about 225 pages, all you need is the first four chapters! This book is raw! Kara King tells it like it is. If you are sensitive and have a low self esteem toughen up, get a therapist. She lets you know that lack of confidence in no way will attract a man. If you want to know what attracts and deters men from your path, this is the book for you. For those who have read only a few pages of this book and believe Kara King is a man basher, you didn't read far enough into the book. I highly suggest chapter 6 in which the author tells us ladies that we tend to over look the good guys for shallow reasons. I have to say she's right, both sexes are guilty of choosing a partner with looks over brains.

I do however suggest that you read more then just one book to empower yourself. Broadening your knowledge and communication skills is what will lead you to finding the right man. As of now I have many dates lined up and i'm very much pursued by the opposite sex. I owe it all to developing self confidence and researching. The following books should be read as well: Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man by Steve Harvey, Why Men Love Bitches by Sherry Argov. If you feel you need to work on your communication skills with the opposite sex you must read Men are from Mars Women are from Venus by John Gray. Not only will your communication skills improve you will gain insight as to why men act the way they do. What makes them tick and most of all how to complement a man with positive affirmations, this builds your confidence and his! He's happy your happy, there will be less nagging involved and more peace, I promise! I also feel in todays technologically advanced society females are easily available, when access should be limited to the opposite sex. Learn how to handle yourself via text messaging, e-mailing, and of course social networking sites such as Facebook. A great book that covers these topics would be Not Your Mothers Rules By Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider. And finally if you feel you have been duped, played, etc you need to look for red flags and this advice goes to both men and women. There are people out there who are quite successful at playing others and you need to be capable of detecting such types. They get away with it because their experts and have been for quite some time. I recommend The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene. Not everyone is out to get you but be aware of those who carry these unique personality traits. Detecting BS is half the battle. As knowledgeable as I am now I use my wisdom to the best of my abilities and I do not lead others on. Once you acquire the needed confidence do not forget to treat others the way you would like to be treated. If someone no longer interest you, make sure you state it kindly. Good luck to all of you!

Don't let the title put you of. Concise and utterly accurate, Kara King calls it like she sees it.

Every woman who is dating, from teenager upwards, deserves to know about the 'player' men she writes about. Some players are harmless & easy to pick out that they are just after sex. Others are more insidious & predatory - they seduce, mislead by suggestion, lie outright, deceive, manipulate and use women. Learn the difference between PERSONALITY & CHARACTER. Pay attention to any feeling that things do not add up. Beware the 'perfect' guy and the 'perfect' relationship that unfolds too easily. Beware the guy who plies you with alcohol. Although there is no guarantee you will be told the truth, establish the rules upfront; ask what you are; what this is. Then see if ACTION matches his WORDS. A guy who is genuinely interested in a relationship willing puts in effort to build something healthy eg will listen & try to solve problems, respects you/proud to be with you, your opinion and is open and transparent. A player is unlikely to invest effort in a woman, to him she is just a docking station and if he is seeing other women then a schedule (certain days of the week) or secrecy is likely part of the equation. Run if referred to as a 'special friend', haven't been introduced to his circle or if when confronted with professions/promises made he claims he can't recall/didn't say that/you misunderstood.

Best be prepared... Figure out the game, avoid being used. Read the book and apply the principles; she has nailed down the player mindset 100%! A real gift to women everywhere, if you are single and dating, don't venture out there without reading this book first!!

As an added extra, men "checkout" (emotionally or physically) when their interest wanes - accept that HE IS NEVER GOING TO TELL YOU!! Be brave, don't settle for excuses - work etc, blah, blah. Just move on, you deserve better.

I wouldn't say it. But I have to say, I was surprised after reading this book. I've read "He's Just Not That Into You" years ago while after going through long stint of being undervalued by men (um, because I didn't understand how to use the power of the pussy) and Think Like A Man (because I was curious) and I read one recently that I bought for my Kindle by the Millionaire Matchmaker, Pattie Stagler and I have to say, THIS book, The Power of the Pussy, is.. um... I'll say it... simply better than all three of them--for me. Chapters 1-3 is enough, actually! I mean, and the chapter devoted to self-esteem needs to be read by all women. And let me tell you, I made all the mistakes. Divulging sexual history was my biggest infraction!

Point blank, I buy it. Ladies, if you want to understand what the power of your pussy is, then read this book. This is a very well written and well thought out book written in a very unique way. And I'm about to post a link on my FB page, telling all my friends to read it!

It's that good. It's definitely 5 stars.

However, if you're one of those people who are easily offended by straight-talk, real straight-talk, then... um... still read it! Toughen up and get over it! Geesh it's 2012!

I honestly don't even know where to begin!!!!!!!!
She COVERS EVERYTHING!! Dating, online dating, just friends, sex (obviously), valuing your self,self esteem, keeping busy, PURSUING YOUR OWN GOALS and not throwing yourself away FOR A MAN! How to get a good man and keep him if you so desire!

There's SO MUCH in this book like the big sister you wish you had, along with the therapist, and your older brother, and also the voice of your little low self-esteem self shows up there too. She covers all the CRAP women tell themselves in order to continue putting up with mediocre and downright terrible behavior from men. This is EXCELLENT cause sometimes we don't even KNOW we are listening to little voice with no self-esteem and then make decisions that are terrible for us! Best way to stop is to become aware of it and expose the lies and MOVE ON!!

IN ADDITION, she also makes EXCELLENT recommendations for other resouRces!

MY ABSOLUTE favorite recommendation was the song playlist! I love music! SO I instantly purchased almost all the songs she recommend for girl power, getting over him power, valuing your worth power, etc

BUY IT, LEND IT, BUY IT AGAIN AND GIVE THE WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE A COPY!!

TOP 500 REVIEWERon September 9, 2014
The book tells women that giving "it" away is foolish, and explains how women need to realize the value and power of what is between her legs. It suggests that you go on dates and not feel bad about using a man for free dinner, movies, money, whatever, and the importance of determining and deciding what your "price" is and will be. Its different things for different women. If you have been cheated on in the past, maybe your price is "an honest guy". If you were with a poor guy, maybe its "jewels and cars", or "money". Maybe you have never owned a house, so maybe its a big house on the hill, but (as the book explains), determine what YOUR price will be and don't open your legs until he opens his wallet.

If you are one of these kinds of women, my response is for you to keep what is between your legs and I wish you the best of luck, because I think you will need it. Do not complain that there are no decent men, or that men dump you after spending 10 seconds with you. You see, the guys like me who are decent and honest are not interested in manipulative, abusive women. You know who we are, because we have always treated you and other women you might have known with respect. Maybe you have run into us before--I might be your father, or your grandfather. Maybe a neighbor or teacher, but that doesn't mean that you cannot find one of us who you would be interested in (for a romantic relationship).

We know who we are, and and we are not interested in being your filler date, and we are not concerned with your "price." We will treat you like a queen, give you all we have, and we will love you faithfully, all we want in return is a for you to love adore and value us. One more important thing, we want you to ALLOW us to love you and to treat you like a queen. Don't make it hard for us to love you, only to blame us if you don't think we do. Don't think the games work, like "make him chase you, or never call him." Take the silly panties off that are sold in this book, put your big girl ones on, and act according to your feelings. (You know,-- if you love me and want to call me, do it. If you want to see me, come over.)===I know its complicated and hard to understand, but try it.

I hear that women want their man to be honest with them. OK here goes. We dont need to "buy" you and we wont. If we wanted to "buy" it, we can get it with no strings--(they say fwb-friends with benefits) in many places. The thing is, we are not into any of that and we don't have those kinds of relationships either. I am sure that there are men who won't mind playing your ridiculous games and I'm sure the two of you will get along great for the short time you see each other. See for him he is out to "conquer" and get into those panties then he is done with you. So yeah--from him get as much as you possibly can then go onto the next guy. I hear bars and clubs are a good place to meet these kinds of guys. Thats where they go to look for you.

For what its worth, I paid the price this book is worth, ZERO. It was on the kindle app of a computer I bought so I started looking at it and read it.

UPDATE: I have thought about this review a little and decided to add the following: --and add two stars. First off, I know from having been married for a long time and having daughters that there are some real losers out there who are just after a one night stand and will tell a woman ANYTHING in order to get it. So if you find yourself in one of those kinds of situations, get everything you can up front. Having said that---this book is not going to cure that problem or fix those kind of guys, they are way too stupid but think they are extremely smart. You cannot fix stupid. However, it might help you to reform a diamond in the rough so to speak. So if you see potential, and you think you have a good guy who needs some manners or instruction on how to treat a lady, use this book with moderation-don't run him off. I just took offense to the comments like "ladies don't feel bad if you use a man for dinners, movies, ........etc" You should feel bad. I would feel bad if I used a woman for anything. Then it says, "Dont give out sex until you get your price"===well your price should be a commitment like a ring or a marriage, and then most of these issues will disappear. If they don't, you have the wrong guy, but at least you are not getting burned for one night stands. Maybe I'm just old fashioned and don't think something like sex should be bartered and bargained for, nor should there be a lot of sleeping around---that is the road to diseases and babies without fathers and we have far too much of that already.

I guess the bottom line is this---I don't want any woman to sleep with me because I spent enough money or bought her some necklace or purse she wanted. I want her to be with me because she has feelings for me, and likes to be with me. See I bought the necklace or purse because I have feelings for you and I want to be with you, not because I'm hoping I have paid the price to get into your shorts. That is where I took offense. I know there are no easy answers or solutions, just be careful with this book. Don't take it too literal--there is no telling who you might scare off, he just might have been a great husband and father.

I AM A MAN who bought this book as a gift for a female friend who does not have an Amazon account. I read the book because the title caught my eye and because I wanted to determine if the author was on target in terms of defining men, etc. Overall, I think it's a good read, funny, and to the point. I didn't agree with everything because I think the book could have shined a better light on men, but I will agree with one statement that stuck out for me on page 129 under the heading MEN LIE ABOUT LOVE. It's true that men sometimes lie about love. If we tell you that we love you and we act otherwise, then we are probably lying. Have I done this in the past? Not me because I have only loved one woman and I told her that. She knows it. But we men (depending on how full of shit we are) will lie to get some pussy. My advice to all women is that if we act contrary to what we say, something is probably up and we have something (perhaps other girls) on our minds. If we are with you and we get lots of texts during our time together, then something might be up. We don't always think with our hearts, which is why men are said to be from Mars and women are from Venus. This is just my little input.

Also, since a lot of women will probably be reading this review I want to tell as many women as possible something important. Please, please, please tell us men what you want. Don't expect us to guess what you want in life and in bed. Tell us what you want. The dilemma for centuries between men and women is that women don't tell us what they want. My girlfriend is the same way and all the women before that. If you want to have sex, then tell us. If you want to go to a certain place, then tell us. If you want us to rock your world, then tell us. As I speak among my male friends their biggest problem with women is that they don't tell us what they want clearly enough and as often enough. If you want to be happy with us, then give us a few hints and tell us exactly what is on your mind. It really frustrates us to keep wondering and guessing.

Ok, well this is my review. I am going to give this book to my friend and hope she gets a bang out of it.

I am 41 years old and i've known the common sense stuff, just like every other woman out there. Don't be needy, keep yourself busy, have your own life, blah, blah, blah. This book opened my eyes to something that should have been obvious but no other author has mentioned or at least, hasn't been as clear and straightforward, with BOLD writing!

After the 3rd Chapter, i had to take a break and take everything in because it truly explained to me the reasons my relationships started off strong and eventually waned. I don't care how much confidence a woman has, or how busy she appears to a man, if she doesn't abide by Chapters 1-3, she's pretty much weakened the relationship by her own hand.

I would recommend this to many women who I know have struggled with relationship issues. This would be an excellent follow up to the book "Why Men Mary Bitches" because even that book doesn't spell it out quite plainly as Kara King does.

Bravo!!!

Really disappointed in this book, surprised that it was even published. Reads like something my teenage daughter would have written, nothing here for a woman over 20. If you are a grown-up, read (and re-read) Sherry Argov's books instead.

Was this book seriously serious? The way to get love and whatever it is you want from your man is to be a bit@% and act like a whore? If you want REAL advice that will change your relationship permanently then either read or watch the DVD's of Love and Respect. I know the DVD's are expensive but they changed my marriage. We watched them 3 years ago and we still retrieve help from them. This book is full of ridiculous advice. Seriously? How can anyone expect to have a loving respectful marriage or relationship by acting that way? The only thing that's going to get us is a bad reputation and certainly not a good example of a role model for our daughters. Wake up America!
