If so, it's time to get stripped. Welcome to the best and most practical relationship advice you'll ever receive. . . .

Not Looking for A Black Man But Loved It Anyway

i am looking for a great guy period and while the title says black guy these tips are universal! it is all about inner peace and knowledge and being bold enough to go after what you want. the book is funny as hell and well worth a happy hour discussion with your girls. ladawn has been through it all and she gets it -- love should be fun, passionate, satisfying and at times funny.

Looking at Self

I am not a big fan of Relationship help books. They tend to pacify the readers, and are very predictable. This book written by Ms.Black offers a different spin on relationships advice, it points out how we must possess the same qualities that we are requiring in a mate. It has precise points, and a mechanism for positive and eteneral change for women's attitudes and attributes.

Book written by a woman who has lived the Truths herself.

I read this book really quickly and will keep this book handy. This book is not just another relationship book, but it's a book written for women by a woman who has lived it herself. So her Truths are truths she can really endorse because she lived them. The Truths are tried, and tested. I thought reading this book was timely for me, being that I'm out there trying to navigate the dating jungle. The book is often humorous at times, but very insightful. La Dawn Black has the book set up where the beginning of the chapter has a letter from someone, then she goes into the topic at hand. She reveals what the Truth is, and then shows an example of the Truth. The chapter ends with a Truthful lesson and then a Bare Necessity. La Dawn shares her own relationship realities that helped her form her Truths. Some of the topics discussed are: 1. Letting go of the past 2. Friends messing up our relationship 3. Making our relationship a top priority 4. Getting the clues 5. Dating outside the box This book is chockful of information. One chapter that especially needs to be read by some women out there is "Stop Chasing Unavailable Men". I would highly recommend this book, and I suggest fellow women buy this book as gifts for their sister friends, or female relatives in search of a good relationship. It really offers some wonderful insight. I'm not saying this book will help you find that man of your reality tomorrow. But it will open your eyes to the choices and some of the things getting in the way of you having a good relationship. For instance you know how women love to say "if he is not making a certain amount of money, she won't waste her time." Well why is it some women choose men based on salary, but they don't do the same for their friends? Think about it. When was the last time you chose a best friend based on their bank account? You know how some of us have that friend that is financially challenged. When I read this paragraph, I knew I would really enjoy this book. Our challenge is not with our men. The real challenge is reprogramming ourselves so that we can be contributors to our relationships, not detractors. Here is one more excerpt I will share: The very best black man is one who is able to feed your spirit and body through compassion, understanding, and dedication to goals, honesty, wit and respect. The very best brother for you will be the one who is able to meet all your needs - not just the superficial ones. This book will give hope to women who think they are going to be single for the rest of their lives. There are good men out there; we just need to be open to the possibilities. I highly recommend this book.

Real Advice For Real Women!

Do you think that all hope is gone in finding the very best Black man? Do you feel you need to settle for less? If so, then you definitely need to read this book! Stripped Bare is a "no nonsense" relationship guide to finding the right Black man for you. This is not your typical relationship book though. This author is happily married with a top-rated urban radio relationship show, two things that certainly make her a credible expert. The book is separated into twelve "truths" that include the author's own experiences as well as others. What I really liked about this book was the frankness of this author. It's like she takes you by the hand to lead you in the right direction to finding the best man for you. Stripped Bare is about how to land the very best Black man, but women of all races can use these truths to land the best man for them as well. Some of my favorite truths are "Ditch The Skirt" and "Make Your Relationship A Top Priority." Stripped Bare is an outstanding relationship book that is hopefully just the beginning of a long career for LaDawn Black.

A sexpert who actually has sex!!!!!

Finally a relationship guide from someone young and hip speaking on the real deal with relationships today. Black gets the challenges of being a single sister and lays out a great plan for getting you toward love. The book is funny, insightful and real. Someone get the sister a TV show!!
