IF LOVE IS WAR, MAY THE BEST WOMAN WIN!

There's a battle brewing for love, the good life and the hearts of black men. Who will win? The answers are broken down between the pages of this how-to guide in 5 basic steps. Without apology or pulling punches, Small reveals to single sisters everywhere why the other girl is making sweet love to the brothers who should be their boyfriends, while 47% of black women will never wear a wedding dress.

Using what she calls the FIVE B'S for Becoming a Better Black Woman, Small rescues single sisters from dating doom by outlining the emotional and psychological challenges that they must overcome to be at their best. Like the strictest drill sergeant or tough love sister-friend, the author coaches black women on how to:

• Overcome angry black woman BIAS
• Fight BRAINWASHING indoctrination
• Maximize BEAUTY as a strategic asset
• Release and unload emotional BAGGAGE
• Be BETTER mentally, physically and emotionally

Best described as a relationship boot-camp guide for getting yours, the book is equal parts as funny as it is infuriating. Black Girl's Guide to Winning at Love & Life successfully gives black women the one thing they need: strategies for winning at love, life and everything in-between.

Harsh, funny and fabulous! Opened this book and couldn't put it down. Everything was true to life, funny and incredibly relevant to my life and black women in general. The author says the truth hurts and she's right. It's the best book I've read in a long time because it's the most truthful. Pick it up and you'll never put it down. Classic.

Truth as sharp as a knife but with some laughter. This book is not for the weak minded or the weak-willed. If you like your truth with any kind of chaser this isn't for you. If you want real answers and real results then look at this book and look no further. It helped me. It'll help you too.

Finally, here’s someone who's willing to speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. On-time and before its time, this is one of the most important self-help books I've read. Pulling no punches, Small's self-effacing honesty takes readers on a journey of self-discovery. It's a jungle out there and the author helps single sisters find their way out of the woods.

Powerful, irreverent, funny and breathtakingly real. This is the new Bible for Black Women looking for love.
