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.

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.

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 A lot of his thoughts were outdated and he seriously needed a spell check or fire his editor.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.

This book is at most, a reformed pimp's true thoughts. At first, the book seemed to be enlightening and a refreshment. After about 20 pages into the book, everything seemed to turn for the worst. Even more, this book went from keeping yourself to how to catch a man. Honestly, there was nothing in this book that I have not heard or seen before. I'm from a family of majority women so we discuss issues all the time. What really moved me was how he tried to charmingly go from how to make a man love you by being a good, virtuous woman to how to dress, look, manipulate, charm, cook, tend to a man. While I did not purchase this book because of self-esteem issues, I feel if this book landed into the wrong hands, women with issues will only become worse.
As an aspiring writer myself, I give him much credit for accomplishing something that I've always wanted to accomplish. I also give him credit for putting his real thoughts into the book (well at least I hope it's his true thoughts). However, he seem to be just a man that is still shallow and possibly unemotional. Afterall, how can he possibly school women on men when the one woman he bore (his first born), won't even reach out to him. For future readers, please do not select this book if you are looking for self-help, but if you need the entertainment, I'd give it a solid B, at best.
