Overview


Tired of Kissing Frogs?

Even the most capable and intelligent women are sometimes struck stupid when it comes to relationships with men. Maybe you're like Cinderella, who thinks that only a man can rescue her; or perhaps you are like Little Red Riding Hood, always attracted to "bad boys"; or maybe you find yourself simply settling, like Rapunzel, because you don't believe you can do any better. And somehow, you always end up kissing frogs.

No matter what kind of "stupid" you are, licensed marriage and family therapist Deborah Dunn will show you why you keep making the same mistakes with men, and will empower you to take control of who you are and become smart about life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In order to find a good man, we must first be happy without one. If you are having trouble finding and holding a good man, this is the book for you." -- Freda V. Crews, PhD, LPC, and host of Time for Hope television program

"Deborah Dunn takes us back to the fairy tales of our childhood, first showing us how we have been falsely influenced by their myths, and then helping us understand how to break free and move into the reality of true womanhood." -- Kathi Macias, speaker and author of more than twenty books, including Beyond Me: Living a You-First Life in a Me-First World

"Stupid about Men is not for those who want business as usual in their relationships; it is for those who want the very best. Dunn helps women navigate the past so they can find hope for the future." -- Don S. Otis, author of Whisker Rubs: Developing the Masculine Identity

    Living Life to Its Fullest

    I recommend highly "Stupid about Men" by Deborah Dunn, a licensed Marriage and Family therapist. The book is a good read for young adults, singles, singles again, and anyone who desires to be smart about life, especially smart about healthy relationships. Within the chapters are testimonies from real people facing real challenges and new choices and insights into fairy tale fantasies that wrongly influence women's behavior in romantic relationships. A good investment in learning to live life to its fullest.
