This is a book that I wish that I had read 40 years ago. It would have saved a lot of grief.

The book is written by a man and woman team, and it treads boldly into areas that society likes to ignore and mock.

The premise of the book is excellent, to help people (men and women) identify destructive women and to know what to do when confronted by such a woman. The book follows through admirably by presenting a case complete with well researched facts.

Very nicely done! I recommend this book to any adult that might ever come across a destructive woman. Yeah! That means that everyone above the age of 18 should own a copy of this book!

In service,

Rich

This is in my top 5 of the best books on sociopaths ever written! The is a MUST READ for any man entering a relationship. These women are everywhere guys, and they don't have horns and pitchforks....they may be sweet, beautiful, the absolute girl of any man's dreams...that is until the mask slips ! This book not only describes these evil, brilliant creatures, but it gives you solid advice on how to break away from one..it will take you by the hand and gently guide you through the maze of "what if's" when you are trying to get away from them without losing your sanity, your money and your kids. Most men are too embarrassed to let others know what they are living in so they suffer in silence. Do not waste another day...get this book ...read it, read it again, and again until you gain the strength you need to take action. Buy this book for any man you even know that is in a bad relationship....get it to him somehow...it may save his life !!!! And all this is coming from an older woman who "knows" how they operate....I have 2 in my immediate family !!

This book needs to bought by any male in a relationship or getting into one.Had this book been written by a male alone the psychotic women this book exposes would blow it off as "hate book".The fact that a woman[and man] has exposed these nut jobs gives it credibility.I am glad to see the author[s] recommended prenuptial agreements prior to marriage.If males going into marriage follow this idea alone the feminist hate machine will suffer a hit.I do disagree with the author that these women constitute a small minority.This book describes half of the women in the United States alone.She also recommends a lot of helpful ideas to deal with avoiding or getting rid of problem females.Guys please buy this book and learn from the mistakes of others.How do I know this book will help you?I gave this book to two of my friends who are planning on getting married.After reading the book they pressed for prenuptial agreements and got them.The soon to be brides are pissed off that they had to sign prenups or the wedding was off.

as a male, you must read this book. It will really open your eyes about what women are capable of doing. I, like many other men, was the gullible nice guy who believed that getting a girlfriend or a wife would make life better. If I would see a very attractive woman, the 'halo effect' would immediately kick in. Now more than ever I definitely am not gullible and am no nice guy anymore, as I have learned a lot about women and human nature, in the last few years.

As a man, you need to break that trance of women's beauty and topple the pedestal. You have to learn how your life might not be better with a wife, but hell. You need to think it very carefully before settling down and having children with a
particular woman, i.e. you'll have to REALLY make sure she's the right person for your children. Do not 'seal deals'. This book will convince you of this. So many men are so gullible, they make children as a way to 'seal the deal' with a wife. They think that once they are married, it will be a 'done thing' and their life will be better.

Buy this book instead, and wake up. Also, I highly suggest you watch the series 'Snapped'. That series really shook me up, it was like a revelation.

Optional: if a book is written by a woman only, I don't read it. I prefer books written by men. True, some men think like women, but you should be able to spot them.

A really usefull book! If you are stuck in a relationship with a manipulative woman, or getting over the trauma of one, this is a must-read.

But this doesn't only reflect intimate relationships, work collegues and even flatmates can also demonstrate this selfish dark-side. The type of female psychosis that this book describes is quite possibly under the surface in most women.

Everybody is in love when they get married... but around half of weddings end in divorce... so, it pays to know the dark-side of the female mind. I suspect that divorce lawyers have already learnt the lessons in this book... that even a good woman has the ability to become a destroyer of all around her.
