Review

"Boom has made the biggest turnaround in a person's life that I've ever known. I couldn't be more proud of him and this book. If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs is absolutely the best advice on men and relationships that a woman can buy. Boom knows what he's talking about and he isn't afraid to tell the truth!" -- Steve Harvey, Steve Harvey Morning Show

It's kinda like saying "Her legs were open and I just fell in!"

I was exicted at first about this book when I heard him on a interview, but after reading it the excitment wore off.

This book was entertaining as well as informative although I don't agree with all of the authors' views.

Like many others, I saw this book in the store and decided to see what a brotha had to say. I understand that Mr. Boom has turned his life around and wants to inform women about the pitfalls of relationships, but I thought that it was a little over the top. This book is just a national confession of all the tricks and the games that he has played with women. In certain areas of the book, it sounded like he was bragging. After the first few chapters, I thought it was a waste of time, but I continued to read to see if he really had something interesting to say. Unfortunately, that never happened. If you are looking for some good advice, start with ANOTHER BOOK! This is a waste of time and money!

Big Boom said everything he had to say in the title of the book. The rest of the book looks good on the outside, but is very empty on new revelation. Poor editing, repeating statements, rambling on from tangent to tangent. Take your $23.00 and carry a little old lady to Starbucks, and get the same information, plus, you will be doing a good deed.

Format: Paperback
Big Boom's "If you want closure in your relationship, Start with your legs" was exactly what I expected, a pointless commentary about what women should do to get a man. I knew that this book would not have any substance after reading the first few pages. The book is too choppy, his points are over the place. He contradicts himself throughout the book and is virtually saying the same thing over and over again.

Just because you are a "reformed pimp" doesn't make you an expert on relationships. Big Boom is fooling himself and readers if he thinks that his book is the resource that a woman needs to find a meaningful relationship, as he has claimed that he has.

Format: Hardcover
This book which is to inform women on the perils of

making bad choices in regards to men, delivered by

a Born again former misogynist and pimp is weak.

The grammar is poor and many themes are constantly repeated

to fill in for lack of information and or insight into

male/female relationships which are deeply complex. Many cliches

and self help chants are used in place of deeply needed spiritual and expert advice. When not speaking in cliched tones The author goes on and on with shameless self-promotion. Ladies not women (as quoted by The author)who are in serious need of Male dogdom insight should look no further than The author. One thing this book makes clear is the author is a man you pray you do not run into!

The only reason I purchased this book was because I heard this particular author on the radio giving great advice to female callers concerning their relationships. If this book was written as well as he speaks this book WOULD have been a great read. I found nothing thought provoking in this book what so ever. A lot of his thoughts were outdated and he seriously needed a spell check or fire his editor. The typo's in this book are horrendous leaving me to wonder how it got published in the first place. Big boom should stick to public speaking. He's a far better speaker then he'll ever be at writing.

i was in walmart one day and this book caught my eye by the title, so i bought it. i wished i would have checked online first. IT is not worth the moneya t all. Mr.boom keeps repeating the same thing over and over and it is very unorganized. alot of the things are common sense, like don't give up the goods to soon, or get to know a man first b/f you bring them aroungd the kids. Not worth it

I purchased this book because of the title. Thank God I didn't spend the money on a hard cover book. The organization was horrible, it was all over the place and confusing. I won't even get into the grammar and typos etc. That annoys me to no end. I didn't feel like I got anything out of reading the book. Yeah yeah, he was a dog who found God and changed his life. Still, there are much better books on relationships out there. Don't waste your money on this one. Mr. Boom, please don't write any more books until you learn how to write or hire an editor who knows his job.

If you were Whitney and you were dating Bobby, then I can see how you would find this book helpful. However, if you're a college educated female with more than a high school education then walk-on-by.

To start, the book title purports to be a book for females, when it's actually a book for men. Mr. Boom basically list all the negative things that been said about females for generations and tell us to just stop, stop doing it. There is no introduction to the topic, no understanding, no conclusion other than "quit doing it".

For example, his topic about women who talk about their relationship with their girlfriends. The author states that women need to STOP telling their girlfriends everything because it's usually the girlfriend with no man that's giving them the advice and that this is what ruins your relationship. This from the man who purports to know and understand women. Now if he were an author he would have said (and wrote):

"I know that women tend to talk and that's the way you communication the way you bond, you grandmother did it as she was cooking with you and your sisters in the kitchen, you do it with your girlfriends at lunch, but you have to know they are somethings you will need to workout for yourself, ask for advice but listen to your heart and take the situation from every angle." <-- BUT he didn't say that, he took 6 sentences to sum up such a topic and that's all the book is. A major chapter, 5 sub-heading and 6 sentences to explain each sub-heading, this is our advice. hhhmmmm, as if life was that easy. (check the table of contents, some chapters are 6 pages long)

I guess Mr. Boom is still a chauvinist, fist trying to pass himself off as a man and now as an author WHO understands women.
