Bethenny Frankel, four-time New York Times bestselling author, self-made businesswoman, and media maven, offers her hard-won guidance on dating and relationships in the tradition of her breakout book, A Place of Yes.
Bethenny is good at many things—being an entrepreneur, mom, and TV star—but when it comes to relationships, she is the first to admit that she has had many failures. The good news is, in working through the mistakes, she has already learned many things about what she doesn’t want, that she won’t accept, and that she shouldn’t settle for. And most importantly, she still believes in love and that her perfect relationship is still to come.
Filled with a mix of candid personal stories and the no-nonsense advice she’s known for, I Suck at Relationships So You Don’t Have To is the next step on Bethenny’s A Place of Yes journey. This is a book by someone who has made many relationship mistakes and knows a thing or two because of it. Bethenny takes a deep look at her own dating and relationship history and gets to the heart of the mistakes women make and what it takes to find and sustain a meaningful connection. Look for Bethenny’s take on hot topics such as: understanding your man; the dos and don’ts of dating; how to trust your gut; and much more.
Despite all her relationship disasters, Bethenny remains an optimist; she keeps going, keeps trying, and continues to open her heart to love. She holds that failure ultimately adds up to something and, that in the end, all mishaps are stair steps to a greater success.

I don't agree with everything this author said but it was very interesting reading!
even though i didnt read the book
When reading this book while taking a relational communication course, i found that this book was relevant to the many different relational theories that we were learning about.I really enjoyed reading this book because it seems to be set in a knowledgeable tone but she brings in a little humor to lighten the tone.I also liked how you get two different perspectives.Bethenny gives her opinion and voices her experiences and then her therapist chimes in and adds his comments and opinions.I really feel that this book was a way to help women who may have shared the same experiences as her by basically telling them the do’s and do nots.I find most of this information to be beneficial and somewhat accurate but many would disagree with some of the information in this book because she predominantly focus on being in a heterosexual relationship where it leaves out homosexual relationships so they could possibly not relate to her, but other than that i think she does a great job telling her experience,it seemed like she was being real and straightforward the whole time and it did not seem like she was holding back anything.I would definitely recommend this book if someone were feeling alone and like they just aren’t made for relationships.
