Why Men Love Bitches is a great self-help book for women who end up putting too much of themselves into a relationship either habitually or particular to one relationship. If you do not have problems with giving too much of yourself to a relationship, then don't even bother to read this book. It's not intended for you.

Me? I do have the tendency to give my all (too much) so this book was very helpful for me. Does it say stuff that I already know? Of course. Any good self-help book is stating common sense/the obvious, but the really excellent ones say it in a way that motivates you to make real change. This book did that. It's funny and down-to-earth and doesn't pull any punches. I found myself making tons of highlights.

Is this book reductionist about female and male behavior and gender roles? Yes. That's why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5. That being said, being overly-simplistic about how men and women are does not detract from the overall message of the book, which is that a woman should keep her center and some healthy boundaries at all times. Respect yourself and your lovers will respect you. Short, simple and absolutely necessary for some women to hear.
