Summary

In How to Spot a Dangerous Man Before You Get Involved, Sandra L. Brown, MA, describes eight types of dangerous men, their specific traits, and characteristics. She explores victim's stories that tell how they came in contact with each type of dangerous man and their outcome. Brown then presents how to develop a defense strategy - how to spot, avoid, or rid themselves of this type of dangerous man. Brown explains women's innate "red flag" systems - how they work to signal impending danger, and why many women learn to ignore them. With red flags in hand, Brown then guides the listeners through their own personal experiences to develop a personalized "Do Not Date" list. With these tools, Brown shows women how they can spot and avoid patterns of engagement with dangerous men.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A must for all, not just DA survivors!

If you're looking for a book to about not making the same mistakes after surviving an abusive or toxic relationship, I cannot recommend this one enough!

Incredibly powerful and compelling audiobook that details the patterns and behaviours of both dangerous men (don't assume that physical abusers are the only type!!!) and the women at risk of fall for them.

This audiobook has empowered me to recognise red flags before they snowball and also given a lot of food for thought about recognising my own behaviours and core beliefs that put me at risk.

Gonna recommend this book to woman in my life.Thank you!!

A must have book for any young woman or any woman

wish I'd been given this information as a teen I could of avoid a whole life time of poor dating choices. I didn't appreciate all my choices as "dangerous" however after listening to this book I can see how they were all incredibly damaging to me my life and my purpose. I've ordered the workbook and will be giving my 16yr old niece a copy. cannot recommend enough!

brilliant clear and concise guidance

brilliant clear and concise guidance regarding dating and learning to trust your own Instincts, and easy for us to ignore our own warning systems that lead us into relationships that are not worthy of us.

A Must Read for ALL women

the reader's voice is monotone throughout with no real inflrcionbut I think she had to be due to the series divussionn. I thought I detected a victim mentality promotion at the beginning but she straightened out the misconception at the end. The information is absolutely necessary and should be mandatory for all women before we make/ or fall for these mistakes. This is one of the best Self-Help books I've listened to Ever. I will b gifting it to a few family members and friend that I think need the message and are open to receiving it. I'm going in again...its more than a one time listen. Oh, I feel so empowered just listen to this book. now I have to act on the lessons learned. I am in a relationship trying 2 get OUT and Now that I've identified hi I will act accordingly. God Blessin

Hear, learn, move forward.

It seems elementary to hear it.
I can't look back though.
That's not the direction I'm going.

An absolute must-read!

Absolutely amazing! This book provides such a wealth of insightful, well-researched information, that every woman should read! The stories within are relatable and eye-opening! I read the reviews about the monotone, robotic narrator, and was worried about it, but I disagree with them. The narration sounds just fine. Read this book! It will open your eyes to things you never even realized you were doing, or missing. It better yet, it will open your eyes to what others were doing to you!

This Should Be Required Reading!

I wish I’d had this book as a freshman in college. 20 years later and the revelations it has brought me are tremendous. Thank you for sharing this treasure with us.

Thank You for Writing This Book

This book has changed my life for the better—thank God you wrote this book and have the companion workbook. Although I knew something was wrong with these dangerous men I was dating- I also knew that I picked these men to date so something was wrong with me too! Thank you for this book!

Intense

Racist, and as mentioned health ‘professional’ she sure does use against ‘dangerous men’. Awful. Calling the artist on MTV, particularly Britney Spears and even Whitney Houston, thugs and slithering. Gross.
