After reading it, women tell me they "know" what to do, "I guess I really always knew, but just reading about all those other women, I used to think it was just me!" It doesn't bash men. It shows women how to stop blaming men and empower themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Vedral, author of The Fat-Burning Workout , here encourages women to shed still more unwanted pounds--those of the undesirable men in their lives. Organizing her material under slogan-like headings (``You Can't Work It Out if There's Nothing to Work With''; ``Stop Blaming Him''), she identifies traits that make a man ``bad'' for a woman--if he's not ``on the mainland,'' that is, he has too many psychological problems; if he ``cheats on you and has a double standard''; if you ``can't stand'' to go to bed with him. Prescribing the remedy suggested in her title, Vedral offers 15 ways to enable oneself to end a relationship. These include ``Realize That Solitude and Freedom Are Priceless Gifts, Not Punishments--Then Do It'' and ``Improve Your Self-Image,'' in which she recommends obtaining a makeover at a department store cosmetics counter. Even the references to Jung and Joseph Campbell can't disguise this tome's superficiality. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Vedral, author of self-help books for teenagers (e.g., My Teacher Is Driving Me Crazy, Ballantine, 1991) and fitness books for women (e.g., The Fat-Burning Workout , Warner, 1991), advises women: ``Stop wasting your time with a relationship that is draining your life rather than enhancing it.'' Her purpose here is to encourage women to take control of their lives. Vedral describes 11 reasons, ranging from boredom to abuse, for ending unsatisfactory relationships and, in a chapter entitled ``Fifteen Ways to Leave Your Lover,'' offers strategies for action. Vedral avoids discussing complications of codependence and relationship addiction and treats problems of short- and long-term relationships jointly. Readers keen on taking her advice will need more assistance than this book. Not an essential purchase. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/92.-- Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
