Marshall, a frequent guest psychologist on CNN Headline News, Good Morning America, and the Tyra Banks Show, offers women insights on evaluating and managing their romantic relationships based on the business model of making deals and handling any subsequent deal-breaking situations. Marshall identifies five general types of deal-breaking male personalities (e.g., Scriptwriter, Man in Charge, Invisible Man) and provides descriptions and case examples to help readers identify into which category the significant males in their lives may fit. Her subsequent discussion of deal breakers and negotiations between couples is an updated spin on the classic concept of establishing effective boundaries with others. Marshall could have broadened her readership base by including additional chapters that identify deal-breaking female personalities and consider the negotiation phase from the male perspective. Still, this easy-to-read book maintains the reader's interest with case stories sprinkled throughout. Suitable for public libraries.
