Daniella is the proud author of Mr Wrong, "a humorous and insightful exploration into why some women continually attract Mr Wrong."

Thankfully, Author Daniella Blechner sheds some light on the many forms of Mr. Wrong. Truth be told, I wish I had this book during the 15 years I struggled through my single years…. dating men that were oh so wrong for me. This book isn’t a relationship how-to book nor does it lecture you ….she gives it you straight, she doesn’t sugar coat it, she is that older sister (or that good friend) that rips the blindfold from your eyes unveiling the truth about your prince charming for he is nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
While I read the inspiring stories of other women who encountered their own Mr. Wrong, I was reminded about the men that I dated who would so easily fit the categories that were listed in this book. (S*** where was I when Daniella was looking for stories)
You can read more of my review at :[...]
This is not a book about man bashing, but a number of “types” are identified, including the parasite, the emotionally unavailable man, the habitual liar and men who are physically and/or emotionally abusive. It goes into detail about the way many women approach dating, putting these relationship styles into broad (often humorous) categories. I was able to find myself in several of the descriptions of the methods women use to find and keep relationships, and the categories helped me see, more clearly than I had ever before, how self-destructive and unproductive some of my techniques are. Also included are a man’s perspective and chapters on why we attract the wrong men and on the power of forgiveness and letting go of the past in order to move forward and create healthier relationships.
This book is really unlike any dating or relationship book I've read. Blechner brings a great deal of compassion, insight and wit to the subject to create a book that provides a deeper understanding of yourself in relationships and that offers the means of breaking negative dating patterns. If you are looking for a book that helps you understand the WHY of your negative dating patterns and then helps you figure out how to create more positive ones, as opposed to a book that offers a quick, superficial fix, I highly recommend “Mr. Wrong.”
Without doubt, as can be seen from the title alone, the primary focus of the book is around women's relationships with men. However, the fundamental truths withing the 290 or so pages should really apply to anybody and everybody. Indeed, it is one of the strengths of the book that it is sufficiently robust to potentially offer something for everyone. All one needs is an open mind, a willingness to learn and, perhaps above all, being honest in one's self-appraisal.
Everyone's journey with this book, and the subsequent value that they take will be a very personal one dependent upon their own experiences in life. It is a journey well worth taking.
From my own perspective, the book greatly helped crystallise a clear perspective on why my relationship with my late wife was so good yet, conversely, the rest of my life has been littered with failed and misfiring relationships.
As I say, a journey well worth taking!
Very highly recommended.
