How to Leave a Badboy

After reading this book, I discovered that I was involved with a very dangerous man, that was more than likely going to try to hurt me very bad. He had all of the signs and the red flags that this book describes. After reading the 12 profile's which described him to a "tee" as the worst of the badboys, the type that could kill me, I decided to leave him for good. Two weeks later, upon leaving him, he fired a gun at me and tried to kill me, just like the book said would happen. Three weeks after trying to kill me, he killed himself. I lived to tell my story and I am here today. He is dead. This is a MUST READ BOOK for any woman invovled in a dangerous relationship with a badboy and certainly a must for any woman who is a victim of domestic violence.

So much fun, great insight!!

This book is a fun read; but furthermore, it provides great insight into why bad boys act the way they do, and even more importantly, why we'd be interested in spending time with someone who acts this way!! Nice read ;) .

Enlightening and Fun

This book was great fun to read. I got exactly what I wanted from it: a lighthearted look at why women choose inappropriate, or possibly destructive partners to share their lives with. Each chapter begins with a well-known fairy tale and goes on to show how life choices mirror that fairy tale in real life. Dr. Lieberman shows us how human insecurities and unfavorable experiences guide us to choose partners no rational person should want. For me as a man, it shed light on why some ostensibly sensible women date and marry men I would not trust to wash my car. I hope Dr. Lieberman writes a similar book for men, for we do the same thing, although the motivations are somewhat different. Clearly this is not an academic treatise; it is pop psychology and makes no pretenses to be anything else. It is, however, a lot of fun to read. And it could help the woman who consistently chooses inappropriate partners discover why she does this and work toward curing herself of those demons causing her to take in the wrong men.

Women do generally find bad boys more attractive !

Women do find bad boys more interesting and attractive than nice guys. This is especially true for black women and somewhat for hispanic women as well. This book is interesting because it discusses the different types of bad boys but doesn't really encourage men to be good guys. it doesn't pay today to be a good guy. Many women are finally admitting that they really do love bad boys and their "sexy" ways. It is hard to feel sorry for women who choose this lifestyle. I think its time for women to accept more personal responsibility for their choices and stop blaming these men. It only makes since that a boy growing up imitates the bad boy opposed to the nice guy because of the bad boy's benefits. All men are looked at as doggs! You might as well be one to get the benefits! Also the book doesn't go into a lot of detail on the recent history of this trend. But the eighties were defintely a better time for the nice guy. Rap music and athletes began this trend. Women generally love melodrama; nice guys are too perfect and boring. One more thing-- maybe the women who date these bad boys aren't so NICE themselves hmmm!The average women between 15-40 today looks like a cheap tramp unfortunately. When is the classy look going to come back in fashion?

Great Book!

In this book I found nothing but the truth about "bad boys". I'm now prepare to deal with such problematic people.
