I wasn’t sure how to take a book about a crazy ex written by a dude. Every dude I’ve ever tried to date won’t date me because his ex was crazy and therefore I must be too because I am also female. So I went into this book a little bit hesitant, but was pleasantly surprised. One of the things noted in the book was that it takes 2 – if you betray her and she reacts to that betray poorly, you are at fault. He also notes that it is important the identify signs before it is too late and has stories from buddies of his so it isn’t just all him going on about his own relationships. Always trust you gut – if you think he/she is an abuser, stalker, liar, etc. Get out of there while you can. The book has a lot of dark humor included but also was and interesting different perspective of sorts.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

Ignoring these signs is akin to taking an all inclusive vacation to Chernobyl and Fukushima without a radiation suit. It could damage you and your offspring for life. It will cost you a fortune. Worse still, it could cost you your life and/or the life you thought you had.
