The MANipulator manual. Keep your man interested and begging for more without playing games. So many women get in trouble in their love lives, and 99.9 percent of that trouble could have been avoided if they'd said "Well, f**k him!" a bit more often. Too many women are way too nice and compliant to their men, especially when these men don't deserve that kind of treatment. I, as a dating coach and author of books for women who want to get men, cannot take it anymore.

This book was informative and fun. I will most likely listen to more from him and hope to work on some behaviors that haven’t served me well in past relationships.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Honestly only made it through as much of this as I did because it was playing while I was busy around the house and didn’t take a minute to stop it until I’d had all I could stand (maybe 45-60 min). I’m not a prude by any means, but I think this guy just likes to hear himself say fuck. The points he made were to stop trying, don’t set goals and watch everything in your life get better - complete garbage! I’m amazed someone could write something like this and actually make money on it. I may try to get mine back, but I downloaded it quite a while ago and just hadn’t gotten to it. If you want to learn how to get lazy and make excuses, I think this is your book.

  • Act like a Lady, Think like a Man

Steve Harvey can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years - the many incredible women who can run a business, have three kids, maintain a household in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. So when it comes to relationships, why can't these same women figure out what makes men commit? According to Steve, it's because they're asking other women for advice when they should be going directly to the source.

Maybe relevant, as long as you’re black and old fashioned. I agree that a lot of the changes of modern times have allowed men to take advantage and slack off on being real men, but unless you’re wanting to catch yourself a good hard-working, Christian black man over 50, this book is not realistic. He also stereotypes women and men both so much I couldn’t listen anymore.

Is having 'somebody to love' the most important thing in your life? Do you constantly believe that with 'the right man' you would no longer feel depressed or lonely? Are you bored with 'nice guys' who are open, honest, and dependable? If being in love means being in pain, this book was written for you. Therapist Robin Norwood describes loving too much as a pattern of thoughts and behavior, which certain women develop as a response to problems from childhood.

This was a book that I will put into practice and revisit when needed. It caused me to really take a look at myself and my pattern of destructive relationships. Definitely life-changing for those women who are ready for recovery.
