In my opinion this is the best book on finding ways of conducting a mutually healthy relationship. The title may not give it away, but this book is truly about maintaining self-respect and being able to spot the sneaky little hoops men try to make us jump through. I have applied some of the principles and I can say the results were staggering. I recommended it to all my female friends. It may be a little bit americanised, but that may make it even more endearing. And for God's sake hide it from THE MAN..
