Book Description

13 Aug 2011
Men-ipulation, Book One of The Men Wars, is dark, dangerous, dramatic and funny as it follows Monica Sarli's lifelong battle with men, sex and Heroin addiction. More can happen to Monica in one week than most people experience in a year, from facing down psychopathic drug dealers to the FBI threatening to put her in the Witness Protection Program or the SWAT team appearing to rescue her from a man she's done with, and every story is as true as it is strange. Get ready for an exciting ride that takes you from the depths of drug addiction to the pinnacle of high society only to end up six feet under.

Product Description

About the Author

Monica Lavery Sarli was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Marrying her high school sweetheart Steve Sarli in 1976, she gave up her job to concentrate on their addictions until August 4, 1986 when she decided for both of them it was time to clean up. After three stabs at rehab—twice at the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas and a year at Amity, a therapeutic community in Tucson—they finally achieved sobriety through a Methadone program. That left Monica free to put all her efforts into promoting her charities until her divorce from Steve in 1995, when she reentered the job market, becoming a highly successful real estate agent selling high end homes. Later, she planned, built and managed a successful tanning salon before selling it in 2008. Monica now lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she continues to work with Denise on her memoir series and maintains that she will be forever 25.

5.0 out of 5 stars you couldnt make it up 10 Sep 2012

I loved this book. I have never read any type of biography before but this was addictive. The book is written with honesty and humour. I was even dreaming about Monica and how she was going to cope with all the problems thrown her way. Cant wait until the next installment is available for kindle.

A direct account of living in addiction. It does skirt over how it effects the family but that's understandable as the writer was a co-dependent and not a non-addicted family member.

The accounts of addiction are scarily forthright but delivered in a matter of fact manner; no sweetening the truth here.

Humourous in many parts, the writing style is so enjoyable, it's hard not to like the author. Although circumstances stick out for me; ow 'the right place, the right time' can change things.

One thing I wish everyone would take from this book is how that if the addict doesn't want to change, nothing anyone can do will make a difference. I think it would benefit anyone who has an addicted family-member to read this book for the insight. It's not a pitying account, blaming anyone and everyone else.

I'm definitely looking forward to the next in the series. I wish Monica Sarli the best for her future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow and not very gripping 18 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good book which highlights the many adverse situations when dealing with drugs and alcohol,but the way in which she and her husband s family don't ever get to grips with his problems is amazing,not once do they threaten him financially regarding his inheritance and other issues were he benefits from them,the book is factual but when it switches from her to him it slows down
