Easy to read and to the point,
This review is from: Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat to Dreamgirl - A Woman's Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship (Paperback)
An easy and very insightful read for anyone wondering why they can't keep a relationship and those that needs to blow of a few cobwebs in their current relationship. I have a single friend who has men falling over themselves to be with her and since reading this book it's become apparent that she has been running these set of rules inadvertently, proof that they do work.
The title is a little deceptive. It's not about being mean and hard it's about being who you are and honouring yourself. That means don't change who you are to please anyone else not just the male of the species. I have tried both ways people pleasing to honouring myself first and foremost. I can tell you that life works a whole lot better using the latter approach. Sherry sets this out as an easy to read set of rules. After the initial read-through it's a great book to keep diving back into if you have a few spare moments and need to remind yourself of some of the rules.
I would throughly recommend this book, but remember this is about honouring yourself and is not a guide on how to be a better doormat.
This book should come with a warning, however, I've made some changes in my marriage since reading the book (with good results I hasten to add) which has now inspired my group of girlfriends to take action in their own relationships, which is leaving a few husbands a little dazed and confused, but trying harder.
