Many women these days are bludgeoned and weakened by their social conditioning---just think of all the "love" songs targeting women where she is either falling apart or completed because of a man. Whitney Houston's "I have NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING (she actually does sing this thrice) if I don't have you" comes to mind, but that's just one example of many. Men are NOT nearly as targeted by social conditioning to feel as worthless as women without a counterpart. R.C. Blakes insinuates that the reason for this is that if the playing field were actually equal, intelligent women would surpass men in mastery (page 131). So, it would seem, society conspired to keep the mature, intelligent, dynamic woman down and "in her place". Furthermore, it seems that when women DO get to positions of power in most conventional workplaces, they often lose femininity, becoming more like men, to get (and stay) there.
There's a lot of so-called men out there who are only trying to use women, and, this kind of man, as the author points out on page 137: "is only paying attention because of what he wants from her. Once he's reached his HIDDEN desire, he often moves on".
R.C. Blakes gives the antidote to this female social conditioning and mistreatment. Encapsulated, it appears on page 75: "Don't settle for treatment that is beneath you". Elaborated, that means, on page 74: "A woman has to become intolerant of promises, wishes, and hopes". THIS is what a man who seeks to use her will prey upon---that, despite evidence to the contrary, she will cling to "promises, wishes, and hopes", and that will be used against her to serve him.
One of my favorite Quotes appears on page 110, and expounds upon the premise of being intolerant of mistreatment. I will copy it in full here and end my review with it: "Have it etched in your mind that there are certain levels beneath which you will not stoop. You should be so resolute concerning this that you are willing to live single for the rest of your days before you allow yourself to be degraded and disrespected".

I learnt a lot, good for young woman to understand how men operate. It’s really great
