“Beth Wilson’s words fire with arrowlike precision to help women penetrate the layers of programming keeping them trapped in unhealthy relationships.

He’s Just No Good For You is a comprehensive, well-written book for women who will recognize themselves, their relationships, and their partners’ destructive patterns. The author knows her material, and offers hope and spiritual sustenance without judgment while nudging us to make better choices.”—Karen Fiester, Ph.D. Stanford University, Clinical Psychologist, 30+ years private practice focusing on women and relationships.

“Written with compassion and humor, He's Just No Good for You is a must-read for every woman who gets involved with the wrong kind of men. It's also a fun, and insightful, read for everyone else.”
— Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and The Blade and The Real Wealth of Nations

“Beth brings to light the subtleties of how many of us have found ourselves to be in damaging relationships, not by knocking us over the head with bricks of “how could you NOT know” or laying blame that we brought this on ourselves, but gently lifting the fog that we’ve been living in by shedding light on all the little glimpses of a dark reality that we too easily have rejected as our imagination. The pain of acknowledging this reality is soften by Beth’s understanding and wisdom. She holds the belief and hope that we can learn from our experiences, trust ourselves to make better choices and journey towards a better life… and she gives us the tools to do so!” —Audrey L. White, MPH, Stanford University Research Coordinator, Health Educator, Nia Technique Instructor

  

 ”He’s Just No Good For You is a unique approach to destructive relationships, providing much needed wisdom and insight for women who just aren’t certain what, exactly, is wrong when it comes to their intimate relationship. Beth extends a trusted hand to help these women find their way back to themselves; to find their way home.” —Judith London, Ph.D., author of Connecting the Dots: Hope for Advanced Alzheimer’s Patients, Clinical Psychologist specializing in Addictions Recovery and Alzheimer’s Disease

“A groundbreaking book, He’s Just No Good for You reassesses the basis for female relationships. By unpacking the characteristics of problematic individuals, Beth Wilson creates a roadmap that allows women to free themselves of destructive influences.” —Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Ph.D., Economist, Author, and Founding President of the Center for Work-Life Policy

"Beth Wilson uses her keen mind and alchemical skills to create concise formulas that help women distance themselves from toxic relationships that devalue and suppress them."

 —Dr. Ramona P. Rubio, author of The Alchemical Woman: A Handbook for Everyday Soulwork.

"Beth Wilson has done a great service to womankind by bringing awareness to the damage done by controlling relationships and identifying the “red flags” which erode self image. Women don’t have to feel like they’re crazy or less then competent any longer. This book is a roadmap out of a toxic situation and onto a life of well-being, autonomy and joy!” — Barbara Scala, Transformation & Divorce Coach and co-author of Sanity Savers: Tips for Women to Live a Balanced Life

“Beth Wilson has spent a lifetime empowering women, and her newest book, He’s Just No Good For You, is a provocative triumph; daring to go where few authors do in exploring dysfunctions in relationships. Almost every woman reading this book can directly relate to her incisive profiles, or knows someone who does. Beth carefully weaves through a painful subject of abusive behaviors in men with raw honesty, sprinkled with humor, and clearly filled with a passion to help women find the inner strength to rise above their circumstances.”
 —Kari Henley, Founder, GatherCentral

"As a psychotherapist, I was often shocked and saddened with the many forms of battering women accepted in their daily lives. We women seem satisfied and even grateful with what I came to call 'the absence of awful' in our relationships. In You're Just No Good For Me, Beth Wilson has done us all a service in describing patterns, symptoms and syndromes and pointing ways to reclaim, restore and recreate ourselves. A must read."
—Anne Wilson Schaef, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of When Society Becomes An Addict, Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, Women's Reality, and Escape From Intimacy.

    Highly Recommended

    If you've been emotionally and verbally abused this is the book for you. If you've grown up in a home where emotional and verbal abuse was commonplace, read this book. It was recommended by a co-worker and I have to tell her thank you. It has been eye-opening.
