This book manages to live up to its title in a way that few pop-psychology texts I've read have. While not a "Relationship Bible", it comes awfully close if your intent is to steer clear of unhealthy men. The authors rather extensively profile 25 prototypical male "losers" to avoid dating at all costs. We are treated to a thoughtful --and often unnerving-- unveiling of the many seemingly harmless "little" male behaviors we tend to overlook as early as the first few dates. The reader is introduced to subtle and not-so-subtle clues in what the guy in question says and does that can spell big trouble. Advice on how to break loose is also offered. Perhaps you feel vaguely uncomfortable with the person you're dating, not knowing why. This book may be immensely helpful for anyone who is dating a person they feel confused or conflicted about. It is also for anyone who desires a crude method of deciding who (or what) s/he is really dating (and if she wishes to sign up for more of what is sure to come). Take advantage of psychological expertise and sophistication, spiked generously with quirky sarcastic humor! You may find that these dating losers sound like females you've known or heard about too. I think either gender will get an education by reading Red Flags. One could also potentially save years or even a lifetime of heartache and misery.Was this review helpful?
