Summary

For men, love is a high-stakes gamble. The right woman can be the best part of a man's life, and the wrong one can lead to personal and financial ruin. In today's climate, no man should venture into romance without a reliable risk-management strategy.

The Tactical Guide to Women delivers a solid plan for allowing the right women into your life, and keeping the wrong ones at a safe distance. You'll discover how to:

  • Identify good women of low drama and high character
  • Reduce your vulnerability to women who seem perfect for you - but aren't
  • Spot the early warning signs of emotional instability

You'll also learn:

  • Critical techniques for seeing women clearly
  • The most common mistakes that lead men into disastrous relationships
  • How to reduce the odds of a good relationship going bad

Impeccably researched and backed by the author's decade of clinical experience, The Tactical Guide to Women provides men with desperately needed, rarely discussed strategies for finding sanity, joy, and companionship. This is not another book about getting laid. This book is about not getting screwed.

Yowza! Golden nuggets throughout!

Dr Smith dispenses some seriously usefull advice in this clear and concise audiobook! From 'red flags' to look out for when dating, to an overview of how to handle a divorce, the information here will be incredibly appealing to men of all ages (particularly single guys or those who seem to consistently attract bad women).

This is the first audiobook i paid for outside of the monthly fee and i'm very glad i did. I'll buy the physical book too for quick referance.

Very easy to listen to and understand as the book has been excelently written and has clear and expressive narration.

All round excellence.

Thank you Dr Smith.

tough break up survivor

This was recommended but entrepreneurs and cars to help me understand why the same romantic mistakes keep happening to me. just got out of a long term relationship from idealised to demonized. I couldn't understand why, now I do. I cannot recommend this enough.

heading is not optional so it seems.

Sean smith is a genius, every man should buy this book. I struggled through a marriage and relationships for 17 years and then I started learning this information. funny how we tend to do things backwards.

An essential for every man

Talking with a friend I noticed that you can have the most intelligent, astute, interesting and successful man and yet they act like lost children when it comes to romantic relationships (Jeff bezos, Elon musk and most likely many of your bosses), sacrificing their mental health, careers, access to their children and all sorts.

This book is excellent and gives a framework to understanding and noticing what to look for in a woman to avoid and prevent situations that can drain and take your life away.

I am reading this going through much trouble and confusion with a lady in my life and reading through this book made everything make sense and where the problems are rooted from from both sides funnily enough.

Essentially the book is about risk management where what’s at stake is having a life that you wish to live in.

There’s not a man who should not read this book. If you are a teen, read it. If you are single, read it. If you are dating, read it. If you are about to get married, read it.

A short story to top this review off but I remember walking through south bank and a couple was arguing, well the lady was arguing with the man should I say. He looked tired and was wanting the conversation to end, she was sweating at him and clearly angered or frustrated. As I approached them, I realised from their conversation that they were engaged and the “argument” was about their wedding. I though to myself that he looks like he has a very long time ahead of him and that scared the crap out of me. I am very glad to say that by reading this book i have the tools to avoid his fate and couldn’t be more happy about it!

Thank you - very insightful and useful

I was near a point of giving up on woman. This book was very helpful, at re-igniting what I know to be true. Woman can be good hearted, kind and appreciative. Listening to this book can save you thousands in uneccesary therapy and painfully giving away everything you stand for and have worked so hard for. Don't lead with money to impress. Time for men to be good, courteous, show compassion and love, yet vigilant in standing for what is right and not be abused or mistreated. Equal justice and rights.

Both my son’s will get a copy!

Essential wisdom for me that they don’t teach us in school. Should be required reading for college Juniors.

Required Reading For Any Man

This book should be required reading for any man that's either dating or married. I think that all or many of the most important topics aren't taught in school, navigating relationships is one of those subjects. It is sooo important. Not knowing the risks ahead can set you up for disaster. It's sobering advice from someone that knows a lot about this topic, lots of insight. The book it presented in a very objective, positive, rational way. Get this book, men need to pull the wool from their eyes.

Useful book. Well read. Slight chirp in the audio.

Great read for men. Slight audio quality issue. Worth the money to get this audiobook.
