Quick, easy, and to the point, Deal Breakers outlines the ins and outs of bad boys' bad behavior, how to deal, and when to let go. While Marshall is full of insight and good advice, the book is plagued with Stuff You Already Know. Innovative it isn't, but enjoyable and useful all the same.

Rating: B+ ( )

This addressed a broader scope of relationships than I expected (which is good). I thought it might be exclusively concerned with the very beginning of relationship, and determining from the get-go whether a guy's traits or behaviour is workable or not. It isn't. I also thought it might fail to address some more serious issues such as addiction and abuse. It doesn't.
In that sense, it's a quite comprehensive approach.
It's not that long but there's a lot of food for thought. And It's delivered in a straight-forward manner. I think the author had a lot of insight to offer. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Relationships are hard work, but how hard should they be? When do you know you are struggling too hard? This is a book about emotionally unhealthy men--the ones who make you question, "Is it him or is it me? I tell him how I feel, but he says I'm overreacting or needy or it's all my fault." This book is about getting out of "relationship purgatory," where the present is unfulfilling and the future is the only thing you can hope for--but there is no magic future. In business, a deal breaker is the nonnegotiable term that, if not agreed to, means the deal is off. But in relationships, identifying your deal breaker can be more promising, as it holds out the possibility of helping you to understand where the relationship has gone wrong, what needs to be done to make it better, and when to walk away.--From publisher description.… (more)
