There are a few titles I would definitely recommend to any woman looking to improve her dating situation as well as her life: "Why Men Love Bitches" by Sherry Argov, "He's Just Not That Into You" by Greg Behrendt, and "Act Like A Woman, Think Like A Man" by Steve Harvey are among my top recommendations. Adding a spot among those titles would be "The Power of the Pussy" by Kara King.
First of all, I absolutely love the title! It basically sums up the message that the author wishes to convey to women in her frank and explicit style! Reading this book was like sitting down with one of my girlfriends - the one who doesn't hold back and gives it to you straight! Mrs. King reminds women of the power of their femininity and encourages them to use it to get the love they not only want -but deserve! The language is explicit but the message is clear - stop settling! Life is too short and time is a precious commodity that shouldn't be wasted on a man that doesn't value you.
The author includes links to various resources to aid the reader in areas which she might need a bit of extra motivation in such as building up her self-esteem, songs to empower you on your journey to getting the love you deserve and so on.
Although I didn't agree with everything the author said, I agreed wholeheartedly with the message: women have been selling themselves far too short and the 'game' won't change until we do by first acknowledging the power our femininity gives us and then fully embracing it. As a single mother of five girls, this would definitely be a title I would encourage my daughters to read before they venture forth into dating. As with any and all self-help or self-improvement titles, take what you want out of it and use it and the rest - put on the shelf or toss away. However, if nothing else - this book will give you a fresh new look at the dating game and definitely provide you with 'food for thought'. (less)

From the small apartment of Jeffrey Dahmer to the huge castle inhabited by Countess Erzsebet Bathory as well as numerous prisons throughout the world, Gordon Kerr takes the reader on a journey to locations where some of the most horrific crimes have occurred. I was familiar with quite a few but there were those who I had not heard of nor read about.

I pray the author has found and kept the love she so very much deserved.(less)

By the end of chapter one, I totally agreed with Dr. Schlessinger whose theme throughout this book is "Men are not responsible for your life - you are!" Those who disagree with the Dr.'s no-holds barred method of communicating might be put off but I embraced her tell-it-like-it-is attitude! So much in this book resonated with me and actually opened my eyes to some behaviors and beliefs I had adopted that were keeping me stagnant in my personal growth. If you can keep in mind that Dr. Laura is not calling women stupid but rather their behaviors - I'm sure you'd find this book an elightening read.
