    Right On

    This book is right on with helpful information for women on how to deal with problematic behavior from men that can drive them into depths of depression and loss of self esteem without even realizing why. It's advice is right on because it shows women how to maintain their self respect while trying to maintain difficult relationships with difficult men. It also helps women identify types they might avoid if that is what they choose. It does not put men or women as a whole down in any way but is frank and accurate. I tried the advice on my fence sitter and it worked like a charm. I think every woman should read this book and I recommend it to my patients.

    The Chameleon Visited Me

    After breaking it off with a man that made me believe He was the Man I would marry and have children, I fell in to a deep depression and mourned for my future that would not be. I picked up this book in a last ditch effort for some sort of logical reasoning why my man left the perfect woman. After only a few chapters my depression subsided and realizing that there were more women out there that perhaps..more than likely experienced what I did, I felt the load lifted from my shoulders. The Chameleon was my *A**h*le. The most gifted of them all in my perspective. He was very good at manipulation and lies. He left for another woman with such opposite characteristics and personality it was shocking. But as the true Chameleon's motivations, he'll be perfect for her as he was for me...in the beginning...until he moves on the the next victim. Thanks to Dr. Duncan and Dr. Rock... They saved me along with a little help from my many friends and family. I am sooooo good now. Thank the Lord. It's over and I'll be on the lookout for a possible *As...H*le. They are so so many!!

    All women should read this book!

    Most books about relationships put the responsibility for the health of the relationship on women. Consequently, woman are constantly questioning themselves, berating themselves, and wondering what they did wrong when their relationship with a man fails. I have long suspected that a significant part of the problem lies with men. It is a pleasure to read a book that finally puts responsibility for men's behavior exactly where it belongs: in mens' hands. Too often, I think, women give men more credit then they are due or before they have earned it. This book reminds or teaches women that there are many men in this world that do not deserve the benefit of the doubt. Thank you to the authors for writing this.

    Hate speech? Don't think so

    I was desperately searching for some insight with regards to relationship problems, and this book is wonderful! It's not hate speech at all! It just describes different types of guys, and doesn't even say it's 'all men' or make any broad generalizations. It's perfect for women who just seem to gravitate towards 'the wrong type', because the authors emphasize that the right type does exist, but it shows women the mistakes they can make. Great read!

    The Perfect Guide for Women

    This book is extremely helpful in trying to understand men and why they may sometimes act like jerks. The title is very catchy, and I would recommend all women read this book to make sure they avoid being in toxic relationships. The authors have categorized all kinds of men(jerks) according to their behavior, how they would react to a certain situation, and how best to deal with them. This is definately a must read for women!
