Publisher's Summary

In How to Spot a Dangerous Man Before You Get Involved, Sandra L. Brown, MA, describes eight types of dangerous men, their specific traits, and characteristics. She explores victim's stories that tell how they came in contact with each type of dangerous man and their outcome. Brown then presents how to develop a defense strategy - how to spot, avoid, or rid themselves of this type of dangerous man. Brown explains women's innate "red flag" systems - how they work to signal impending danger, and why many women learn to ignore them. With red flags in hand, Brown then guides the listeners through their own personal experiences to develop a personalized "Do Not Date" list. With these tools, Brown shows women how they can spot and avoid patterns of engagement with dangerous men.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A Must Read for ALL women

the reader's voice is monotone throughout with no real inflrcionbut I think she had to be due to the series divussionn. I thought I detected a victim mentality promotion at the beginning but she straightened out the misconception at the end. The information is absolutely necessary and should be mandatory for all women before we make/ or fall for these mistakes. This is one of the best Self-Help books I've listened to Ever. I will b gifting it to a few family members and friend that I think need the message and are open to receiving it. I'm going in again...its more than a one time listen. Oh, I feel so empowered just listen to this book. now I have to act on the lessons learned. I am in a relationship trying 2 get OUT and Now that I've identified hi I will act accordingly. God Blessin

Hear, learn, move forward.

It seems elementary to hear it. I can't look back though. That's not the direction I'm going.

This Should Be Required Reading!

I wish I’d had this book as a freshman in college. 20 years later and the revelations it has brought me are tremendous. Thank you for sharing this treasure with us.

Thank You for Writing This Book

This book has changed my life for the better—thank God you wrote this book and have the companion workbook. Although I knew something was wrong with these dangerous men I was dating- I also knew that I picked these men to date so something was wrong with me too! Thank you for this book!

Review

The one thing I didn’t like was the narration which sounded like a Siri voice, computer automated almost. Good information in this book to read after leaving a toxic relationship and before you think about getting involved with someone else. Brutally honest advice.

this book was greatly needed in our lat this time

I couldn't stop listening to it when my daughter told me about this book. she just is getting a divorce from her husband that was abusing her and finally the last straw was he kicked her in the head. I never knew this was happening. When I saw bruises on her she always said he was just rough playing. I told him if he wants to rough play then he needs to take at Jiu-Jitsu class. I TOLD HER TO TELL HIM TO STOP THE ROOF PLAY.the last straw was when he finally kicked her in the head and she called the police then she proceeded to tell me everything and it even tried biting her and did bite her and said HE LOVED IT HE LOVED IT! AFTER SHE TOLD HIM THAT IT HURT. I LEARNED A LOT AS A MOTHER TO WHO IS DIVORCED BUT NOT BY AN ABUSIVE MAN BUT MORE OF AN EMOTIONAL ABUSE MAN I FOUND OUT FROM THIS BOOK. THANK YOU!

A must have book for any young woman or any woman

wish I'd been given this information as a teen I could of avoid a whole life time of poor dating choices. I didn't appreciate all my choices as "dangerous" however after listening to this book I can see how they were all incredibly damaging to me my life and my purpose. I've ordered the workbook and will be giving my 16yr old niece a copy. cannot recommend enough!

brilliant clear and concise guidance

brilliant clear and concise guidance regarding dating and learning to trust your own Instincts, and easy for us to ignore our own warning systems that lead us into relationships that are not worthy of us.

Every dating woman needs this

The real life examples are so powerful. Teenage girls through to divorced middle aged women should read this. Dangerous men span so many areas of life and the havoc they wreak is earth shattering.

Great guide and self reflection tools

This book is an excellent narrative which supports looking inward to what you are willing to tolerate, why you believe you should put up with that behaviour and how to recognise and name the types of abuse. The book provides fundamental nformation to recognise if you are suffering at the hands of someone with pathology which makes any really change almost impossible and will hopefully equip readers with the ability to see red flags early and get out of harms way.
