Publisher's Summary

For men, love is a high-stakes gamble. The right woman can be the best part of a man's life, and the wrong one can lead to personal and financial ruin. In today's climate, no man should venture into romance without a reliable risk-management strategy.

The Tactical Guide to Women delivers a solid plan for allowing the right women into your life, and keeping the wrong ones at a safe distance. You'll discover how to:

  • Identify good women of low drama and high character
  • Reduce your vulnerability to women who seem perfect for you - but aren't
  • Spot the early warning signs of emotional instability

You'll also learn:

  • Critical techniques for seeing women clearly
  • The most common mistakes that lead men into disastrous relationships
  • How to reduce the odds of a good relationship going bad

Impeccably researched and backed by the author's decade of clinical experience, The Tactical Guide to Women provides men with desperately needed, rarely discussed strategies for finding sanity, joy, and companionship. This is not another book about getting laid. This book is about not getting screwed.

Wish I read this when I was 19

You don't always have to learn things the hard way. Sometimes you can learn from others instead of going through the trauma.

I made the unfortunate decision of "Playing House" with an older woman at age 19. Fast forward to 8 years and 2 kids later, let's just say that it was a mistake that could have easily been avoided had I had this book 10 years ago. I found myself nodding my head alot during this audio as I experienced almost every red flag as a young man that was brought up in this book.

Fathers, I encourage you all to hold onto this book and hand it down to your son once he is around the age 19. He may not read it but it's the very least you can do if he refuses to take your word for it.

Great book! (Less MGTOW and more tradcon)

book was great however it felt like it was more focused towards a TradCon perspective vs an all out mgtow type piece of work.

still a really good read and highly recommend!

a book that is as important as the rational male.

the book is outstanding and every man should read this before dating or consider marrying a woman. I plan on going through it a second time. this book is as important as the rational male series.

Thank you - very insightful and useful

I was near a point of giving up on woman. This book was very helpful, at re-igniting what I know to be true. Woman can be good hearted, kind and appreciative. Listening to this book can save you thousands in uneccesary therapy and painfully giving away everything you stand for and have worked so hard for. Don't lead with money to impress. Time for men to be good, courteous, show compassion and love, yet vigilant in standing for what is right and not be abused or mistreated. Equal justice and rights.

Required Reading For Any Man

This book should be required reading for any man that's either dating or married. I think that all or many of the most important topics aren't taught in school, navigating relationships is one of those subjects. It is sooo important. Not knowing the risks ahead can set you up for disaster. It's sobering advice from someone that knows a lot about this topic, lots of insight. The book it presented in a very objective, positive, rational way. Get this book, men need to pull the wool from their eyes.

Don't read this book if you want to learn about wo

This book was weak it does not teach you much about how to deal with women in relationships but more so focuses on the women to avoid and personalities to avoid and their repercussions of marrying are being with the wrong woman not very helpful for dealing with women
