Who better to give advice then someone who has personally done all the wrong things?

This has to be one of the best relationship manuals ever written! All though with its racey cover and title i would NOT put it on my coffee table i know that when i have a daughter and she grows up i will try and instill most of this advice in her. Knowing Karrine Steff...
This has to be one of the best relationship manuals ever written! All though with its racey cover and title i would NOT put it on my coffee table i know that when i have a daughter and she grows up i will try and instill most of this advice in her. Knowing Karrine Steffans reputation some of you reading this may think i'm crazy but this book is NOT what you think it is. Instead of being trashy and filled with skankish "blow by blow" instruction on every page (pun intended) it really focuses on the woman being complete and confident in herself first before seeking a mate. Something i think 99% of women do not do. If this review does not convince you to buy and read the book take this piece of advice from the book with you. NOBODY CAN AND SHOULD BE BURDENED WITH THE TASK OF COMPLETEING YOU! Before you can have a meaningful relationship you have to treat yourself well! Great book i'm insisting my sister and all my girlfriends read it. I think this book is simply AMAZING.

I came across this book today while shopping for a birthday gift for a friend. I noticed the book perched up in a modest display overshadowed by more popular, well known authors. I had no idea K. Steffans had even written another book. I read it about 2 hours and was disappointed to say the least. This book doesn't tell or teach you anything you haven't heard before in life unless you've been living under a rock! Yup, there's no profound or newly revealed information nor does she tell you how to suck a mean one. A quick run down? Take care of yourself in and out. Keep a clean house. Take care of your man. Pay attention to detail. Don't lose yourself in relationships. Sex is a beautiful thing when you're in control of yourself and your life. Duh, right??? Yup, nothing new I haven't been doing for years. It's her version of Steve Harvey's book "Act Like A Lady...". It's a redundant "guide" basically telling you most things that are considered common sense if you've made it that far in life (over the age of 21). Or if you've had a pretty decent upbringing then this book is just a compilation of all the things Mama, Grandma, and Auntie told you about. There's even illustrations of simple sexual positions (missionary, 69, etc.) as if you'd never seen them before. Did Karrine really think she was dropping knowledge?! She tries to come across as having "been there, done that and now I'm teaching you" but doesn't quite pull it off. She does say she's no saint and who is she to be teaching about healthy relationships and blah blah blah but it's almost like she's just adds that just because she knows people will say that. In short, the book was a total snooze and just another attempt at K. Steffans trying to cash in on what she thinks is a successful manipulation of the masses. Well not me, a leopard doesn't change its' spots! I think it's great that she accomplished her goal of writing a book however she missed the mark. Ladies, save your dough and spend it on the manis and pedis Karrine tells you to treat yourself to from time to time...or didn't you already know that? Thank God for return policies.

    A Woman Without Discretion,

    I was disappointed as well as offended with this read. The title is misleading. "The Vixen Manual" is more about sexual choices and exploits than a guide or manual. It does not include the impact of learning as in changing directions, benefiting from experiences or sincere investment in emotional maturity. Therefore, instead of being instructive, it becomes a journal of experiences where the choices of the author are left to be evaluated by the reader. The same would be expected if this was autobiographical of a madame.

    "The Vixen Manual" is degrading to women (honorable) and reduces their role to exploitation by men as if they have no intrinsic value but are ascribed value according to their sexual acumen. Men have been degrading women for years; it's truly sad when a woman does it to other women.

    wow

    I have read and own all three of Karrine's books. The Manuel is basically a how to guide to high self esteem and getting the man in your life to like you better or even like you. It had some informative points to the book but nothing I hadn't already learned before. The Manuel was not a favorite of mine.
