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.

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!

This Book is a MUST HAVE!!!

I read this book about 6 months ago and the purchased it on Audible in October.
That is when is really sunk in. For me it was the last step to recovery after I ended a very bad relationship two years ago.
I had no hope that there were any decent women out there. Sure I date but kept seeing the same thing in other women.
This book did two things for me.
1. It gave me a firm understanding of what to look for and notice the signs quickly.
2. It has enabled me to discover how I was being and when I was getting in my own way. That was an even bigger discovery.
Now I have new hope. There are women out there who have great qualities and I met have them. I am by no means falling back into the Blue Pill world. I am seeing things from a new perspective and it is very refreshing and sometimes comical.
This is a great read for men of all ages especially for the younger guys who are dealing with a lot more BS than us older guys ever did. Get it for you and for the men in your life that you care about. They will appreciate it.
Thanks Dr. Shawn

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.

Both my son’s will get a copy!

Essential wisdom for me that they don’t teach us in school. Should be required reading for college Juniors.

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.
