Stuck on Stupid or Stuck in Stupid: (The 25 mistakes women make that prevent them from attracting and keeping true love) Is the partner book to: Think Like a Manand heres a thought: Start Acting Like a Man (The 25 mistakes men make that prevent them from finding and keeping true love) I have been pondering whether or not to write a relationship book for women for quite some time. After the release of my first novelTorn Between 2 Brothas and my first relationship book Think Like A Man, I received numerous e-mails and phone calls from women asking that I write a relationship book for them. Initially, I was taken aback because I never saw myself as a relationship guru. The irony is that Ive always been the girlfriend that everyone comes to when it comes to relationships. I dont think that it is because I have had the best relationships when it comes to men. Believe me; I have had a few that I care not to remember. I must admit, I kissed a few frogs before I found my Prince Charming. However, I do think that it is because I have always been optimistic and objective when it comes to love. Even when I have been in the midst of a tumultuous relationship, I have always been able to find my center, recognize my stupidity, and if not in that momentvery soon afterwards, get out of my circumstance. Afterwards, I brush myself off, evaluate the lesson learned and move on (something many women have trouble doing). Also, I try not to punish the next man that enters my life for the mistakes the previous guy made (huge mistake). For the last ten plus years, I have been paying close attention to the behavior of women and trying desperately to get a grip on why we continue to behave so stupidly when it comes to men. Is it that we just dont know? Or is it that we do know, but we choose to stay stuck in/on stupid? Youll have to answer these questions for yourself. Also, I interviewed men and asked them what things really bother them about women when it comes to relationships. Stuck on Stupid includes some of the most voiced concerns. After reading this book, ask your mate to read it and highlight the areas he feels you need improvement. I think youll be surprised. Dont worry, your mate wont highlight the whole book ?. Whenever youre in a relationship you have to be willing to grow and make changes. Its part of the process. Love requires it. Nevertheless, I hope that by the end of this book you will have gained some insight about your behavior and begin to make the necessary adjustments in your life to allow you to experience REAL love. Blessings, Linda

About the author (2012)

Linda Porter Harrison is an Author, Motivational Speaker, Trainer, Wife and Mother. Linda’s ability to share and relate her life experiences through the art of writing and speaking is truly a gift. Motivating others to be the best that they can possibly be brings Linda ultimate joy. “I truly believe that I was placed on this earth to serve others. When I can help someone tap into their inner gift it pleases me beyond measure. I get total joy from seeing others happy.” Linda is a native of Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a graduate of Grambling State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a Masters in Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh. Linda started making her mark in Las Vegas by hosting community forums where she addressed serious issues in the black community. She also started a program called Ladies to Be, where she chose 25 girls a year (Grades 9-12) to mentor. She received numerous awards for her work in the community and has been recognized by Congressman Harry Reid, Senator Ensign, Mayor Jan Jones, Councilman Frank Hawkins, The Professional Black Women of Las Vegas, and Kappa Alpha Psi. She is the author of Torn Between 2 Brothas and Think Like A Man. “I’ve always loved books. I remember walking to the North Las Vegas Library and spending hours in the stacks. I love the feel and smell of a new book. I don’t ever recall saying that I wanted to be a writer. I actually thought I was going to be the next Oprah Winfrey. I wanted my own talk show. As a matter of fact, most of my family and friends thought I would be a talk show host. However, when you look at the fact that I ended up being a librarian it makes sense that writing became one of my passions. Torn Between 2 Brothas came by complete surprise. I was going through a very rough period in my first marriage and things were looking pretty bad. I came home one evening and something told me to pick up a pen and writing pad. I started writing and after a few days, I realized I had filled 10 pads. Even though the story that was evolving had nothing to do with my personal experience, it sparked the beginning of my literary creativity. The end result, my first novel.” Linda was surprised at the response from Torn Between 2 Brothas. “I never knew so many individuals were struggling with two partners. It really got me thinking about relationships as a whole. Why weren’t we getting this relationship thing right? So, I started outlining a relationship book for women, but that was stalled because my husband suggested that I write a relationship book for men instead. I wasn’t thrilled about the idea because I have a hard time writing on a subject matter that doesn’t come from me (my inner spirit), but I had collected so much information over the years I knew I had a relationship book inside of me. I put the relationship book for women aside and focused on men. Once I really surrendered myself to the idea, everything just started to flow. The fact that I was raised by a man gave me a different perspective. This led to the creation of my second book, Think Like A Man.” Linda has the ability to connect to men and women on a deeper level. A level that promotes honest and heartfelt dialogue. Her down-to-earth demeanor, candidness, sophistication and warmth make everyone feel at home in her presence. “I’m a pretty transparent person. You get what you see and I believe that people are attracted to that part of me.” She hopes that her books will entertain and inspire. In her spare time Linda enjoys cooking, singing jazz and exercising. She is working on her next two literary projects. Linda lives in Tennessee with her husband and son.
