The World's Top Ten Worst Men for Woman Guide by Tamara R. Neal Trafford Publishingreviewed by K.R. Mecom"No man is perfect; there is no such human. However, there are some men that you want to be on the lookout for."
There are countless self-help books for women that claim to hold the secret for meeting the perfect man, but Neal's is unique. More insightful than those how-to-find-a man books, Neal outlines the types of men that all women should stay far away from. Each chapter profiles a different man, explaining how his traits can create a toxic relationship.
In the chapter, "The Intervention Man," Neal describes relationships with men who are addicts. In one example, she describes a man whom her girlfriend was dating that hid his addiction. The girlfriend later realized that she had only known the addiction and not the man. Neal tells women not to be an enabler, and even though it may be difficult, they need to extract themselves from this type of relationship.
In "Till Death Do Us Part," Neal describes the escalation of an abusive relationship. Often this type of man will be controlling at the start of the relationship, and then will become more violent as he gets more attached to a woman.
"The Prisoner in Love" focuses on men that have been or are currently in jail. Instead of advising women to just end the relationship, Neal admits that this type of relationship isn't so cut and dry. Depending on the circumstances (the man being unjustly incarcerated or being truly sorry for his crime), one might have found true love. However, one must really consider the type of crime and if they are willing to put their life on hold for someone.
Neal doesn't intend to bash all men, nor claims that all men fit into one of these ten categories. The book aims to make women aware that there are dangerous men who can do women harm, both emotionally and physically. Neal often advises women on how they can escape these types of relationships, advocating turning to family and shelters for help. Ultimately, the book is about taking responsibility for one's life and choices. .
From the Author:
Tamara Neal was born in Baltimore Maryland and was one of the first student participants in the Baltimore's Scared Straight Program in the late 1970's. The program was designed to detour delinquent students from graduating into the prison system. Although Neal managed to stay out of the correctional system and was scared into staying a law abiding citizen, there weren't any programs available to teach students that although roses are often used during courtship, there are lots of thorns'! Neal was forced to learn about toxic relationships, through a course of trial and error and feels that if there were a "scared straight program "for toxic relationships she could have avoided a lot of trauma, drama and sleepless nights. After graduating from the University of Hard Knocks with a Master's Degree in toxic relationships, Neal realized that she could be victorious, instead of a victim and decided that since she had walked the walk that it is now time to talk the talk, and birthed "The World's Top Ten Worst Men for Women Guide." At last there is a guide that teaches our daughters, niece's, cousins, friends, mothers and unsuspecting love ones, how to identify the characteristics and telltale traits of a freight train coming down the track without a rail road conductor on board!
Neal has no intention to bash any man and advocates getting to know the woman in the mirror, learning to listen to one's gut, learning to love one's self first before trying to love someone else and forgiving one's self for allowing the abuse to happen, forgiving others, and living life on life's terms. Ultimately the book is about making better choices of associates!
Neal has come full circle, married her childhood sweetheart and prom date from over thirty years ago and continues to educated young adults as well as people with a history of repeat relationship failure or new to the dating world about the warning signs, characteristic and telltale traits that they should be on the lookout for and is also the owner and founder of Taylor Made Assisted Living Center.
