Book Description

February 14, 2004

How's a girl to know if he's the guy for you? What if your instincts are firing off warning signs when he says "It's your MIND I'm attracted to-" even while his eyes are on some other body part? What if he gets your name wrong? What if everything he says is lies? Are you still making excuses? Part self-help, part-good advice from a friend, all funny, all real, Red Flags is about believing your intuition. It's about listening to your female friends who might be able to see the truth in your situation. It's about finding what you want, not what you can settle for. And it's about trusting yourself. With 64 pages of hilarious cartoons, with real red-flag stickers so readers can mark their favorite cartoons and a fantastic little fold-over flap that makes the book a little mailable package, it's the anti-valentine for friends to give friends...by the dozen.



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This illustrated gift book is a gentle, humorous wake-up call for lovestruck friends and family members who are blind to their partners' faults. The friendly text provides encouragement while the free-spirited drawings highlight the boyfriend behaviors that should send up red flags. The charming illustrations encompass a variety of comic scenarios; in one, a boy pointedly stares at a girl's breasts while saying "It's your MIND I'm attracted to," and in another, a boy caught surfing adult Web sites says to his girlfriend, "Chill out. It's not 'pornography.' It's ART"). Readers can use the red flag stickers provided to flag the situations that seem familiar, and those who are buying this for a friend will appreciate the clever packaging (the back cover folds over, turning the book into a convenient mailer).

4.0 out of 5 stars RED means STOP not PASSION August 3, 2006
Format:Paperback
This is an ideal book to the single ladies who want to avoid a divorce long before an engagement ring. Hillarious and witty comics illustrate that ... if it feels wrong to be with someone in your gut, and emotions of uncertaintly are overflowing, stay clear in the head and heart .... no excuses... and don't kiss the frog! There are no Prince Charmings or White Knights on White horses ... just the reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to flag the toads! August 10, 2004
Format:Paperback
How's a girl to know if she's found her Prince Charming? How's she to know if she's kissing a frog instead? Yolanda Nave answers both these questions in Red Flags, a slim volume that outlines, "What every girl should look out for...."
Amusing drawings accompany each pointer, such as a girl trying to prop up a lopsided heart (signifying a one-sided relationship); or the page that explains a red flag is a girl's intuition trying to tell her she is about to make a bad move, which is accompanied by a drawing of a girl with a hobo on a bench.
Too often, girls ignore the red flags that come up in a relationship - warning signs that the relationship is headed for trouble - like when a boy tells a girl he doesn't drink or do drugs; his only weakness is "Girls, girls, girls!"
What else is sufficient for a girl to red flag a relationship? There's the boy who wants to borrow money from her, the boy who tries to tell her the hickey on his neck is a spider bite, a boy who does drugs, or a boy who treats her like dirt.
Nave's book clearly sends a message that many girls need to hear; that they should let their conscience be their guide and tune in to their intuition when it is trying to tell them that they are making a mistake. The book also shows girls how to make a checklist of good qualities that a boy must have, and the importance of having common interests in order for the relationship to be fulfilling, while encouraging girls to stop rationalizing or making excuses for their boyfriend or potential boyfriend. Instead, it offers good alternatives such as discussing the problem and trying to find solutions or, if that fails, ending the relationship.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed August 8, 2005
Format:Paperback
I was disappointed in the book because it was written in cartoon style with the text in bubbles. I felt it was on an elementary level and not appropriate for my teenagers - One 12th grader and one freshman in college. I do not feel like the book was worth what I paid for it.
