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.

Simple to understand and informative

Humor, facts and stories to relate to real life situations. Overall a really good book.

All the facts were cited and summarized from where the information was from. Time to time humor to draw your interest. And stories that seemed like it came out of a drama or movie so one can relate.

And thankfully narrater is not monotone.

Surprisingly Insightful

I was assigned this book and was not excited based on the title. 'Tactical Guide to Women' had me expecting sneaky and sleazy ways for guys to get with women. I was going to find an excuse to take a pass on the book, when I saw the ratings and reviews on audible. With audible's amazing return policy, I figured there was no harm in giving it a shot. I was beyond impressed with the author's mix of anecdotal evidence and research based observations. The book covered many of the areas needed for a man to make a relationship work. Give this book a try!

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.

Wow! Just wow!

Well written and referenced. The narrator has given a flawless delivery. Though, there are a few instances when you can hear him turn the page (script). I recommend this book for every male on the planet. It should be required reading/listening before high school graduation.
