Review: The Little Black Book of Big Red Flags

[ 5 ] July 6, 2011 |

Reviewed by Poppy Johnson

The Little Black Book of Big Red Flags is for any woman in a relationship, out of a relationship, thinking of a new relationship, or reminiscing on a past relationship. The book has all of the answers to dating men and for spotting the flags that signal their fidelity, love, affections and true feelings, or lack thereof.

I could not put The Little Black Book down. Each chapter describes a type of trait or characteristic, such as being immature or a cheater, and offers advice, red flags, testimonials and “WTF” stories of women who have had to deal with the situations first hand.

The book’s authors are three women who definitely know what they are talking about. They write in a style that is at once authoritative and conversational. You do feel as if you are talking to your best friend over a latte. But their advice is spot on and they do not couch their words or hold back in any way – they really tell the truth about when to leave and when to stay.

The point is, most women see the signs before they marry a guy, but choose to ignore them. The Little Black Book gives the women who see early signs of infidelity, insecurity, immaturity or inexcusable behavior permission to get out and find someone who appreciates them for who they are. This book is not only useful, it is also hilarious and I would recommend it to women of any age. Strong language used 100% appropriately for the context of the book (not suitable for teens).

Rating: 5/5

    I think most women see or at least sense the signs before they get seriously involved or marry a man and, whether consciously or unconsciously, choose to ignore it. Sort of “but I thought he would change” approach. For those women, I don’t think this would be overly helpful because they already KNOW what the red flags are, they just choose not to face them. For women who actually do not know what the red flags might be this could help them more easily spot it. I have a coworker who, looking back now, saw the signs that her husband was a bad guy before she married him and then, because she loved him, had had a child with him and didn’t necessarily believe in divorce, stayed in an unhealthy relationship with him for over ten years because she didn’t want to face it…she is just now started the process of filling out the paperwork to get her divorce proceedings rolling. Maybe if she had had this book before she married him she wouldn’t have been able to ignore or push aside the warning signs. Thanks for the review, it is an interesting topic!

    This sounds like something I could have (should have) written. I’m interested to see how it’s handled, to come off as accurate and knowledgable, and not whiney and ‘man-hater’.

    Too bad this cannot be handed out when women first start to date! I love the idea of this book. My biggest advice: “Trust your feelings, they are probably right!”.

    Sounds cute! Kinda like Maybe He’s Not That Into You? Might have to check this one out, which for me is odd, since books like this usually don’t catch my interest. Thanks for the rec!
