    This book may save your life!

    Finally separated after 13 years in an unsuccessful marriage, I picked up this book to get my head straight before I set out to meet someone new. I found my exhusband in chapter after chapter and it gave me a great deal of peace to see that although I made plenty of mistakes, I was not alone. I was smart to draw the line in the sand where I did. What a relief to know I was not unjustified in my belief that something was 'wrong' with my husband! The first date I had after my separation was awesome: too good to be true. When I got home, I picked this back up and sure enough---there was my nice, ordinary date, with red flags all over. I'm done with dating for a while, but now I'm off to the hardware store to stalker proof my house. If you have a pattern of unhealthy relationships, I can't recommend this book highly enough, and I am being serious when I say it could save your life. It is easy to read, you won't feel stupid or ashamed, only much, much smarter when you are finished.

    How to spot a dangerous man before you get involved

    I completely agree with the other reviews of this book. I was in the same types of relationships over and over. This book will change your life and it will save your life. No cliches here. Sandra is a realist and when you are twisted in a relationship like this it is a saving grace to be unwound. I've read her books. I've gone to her website and I've spent 4 days with her 1:1 to get myself on a new path. If you are looking at this book then most likely you need her help. I'm telling you this is the book to do it. No fluffy stuff here. Get the workbook and DO it. Read her book Women who love Psychopaths. I promise you, you will not regret these books.

    Every Woman Should Read This!!!

    Every woman should read this. This is a must read even if you think everything is fine. I was in a physically abusive marriage the first time. My second marriage, my husband is emotionally and verbally abusive. Since my first marriage was so bad I did not see the "Red Flags" with my second husband. After reading the book the "Red Flags" were obvious. I really wished that this book was out years ago. I would have avoided a lot of heartache. Thank you for the book.
