Overview

Sure he's gorgeous, funny, and charming—but early in any doomed relationship there are warning signals foretelling the bad news to come. Studies show that most women will try to justify these signs, excusing them so they don't interfere with their fantasy of having met the perfect man. Unfortunately, such signs are usually all too prophetic—they are the essence of what Drs. Gary Aumiller and Daniel Goldfarb call "Red Flags." The question then becomes how to detect and respond to a Red Flag before it's too late. This first-of-its-kind book will help readers determine a man's all-important "loser potential" within the first three dates.Each chapter includes a profile of a different loser, a post-date quiz to help you determine if Mr. Right is Mr. Wrong, and important information about the best way to break up with him. Red Flags has all the fun of a magazine quiz combined with the expertise of psychologists who specialize in the techniques used by the police to profile criminals. They know how to spot the rejects—and now you will, too!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Aumiller and Goldfarb have based this book on their experiences as psychologists. They've seen firsthand how women can be led astray by the "Losers" they date or even marry, and their aim is to help women spot dead-end relationships before they get into them too deeply. Because they've treated "Losers" in their practices and because they've done work with the police in establishing profiles of deviant personalities, the authors have been able to differentiate among various classes of "Losers." They've come up with 25 different categories of "Loser," from the Abuser to the Wanderer, and also supply a set of quizzes for each type so that the reader can tell if her blind date really isn't worth pursuing. The cleverly themed chapters are short and easy to read, and the quizzes do seem to be grounded in the forensic psychology that the authors practice. Certainly worth buying for public libraries if there is interest.--Pamela A. Matthews, Gettysburg Coll. Lib., PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
