Believe it or not, this is the relationship version of The Miseducation of the Negro by Carter Woodson. I don't thin it is as well written, and there are probably books that tackle these subjects using language that is less inflammatory. Like most things in life, you can't take this book purely at face value. But there are nuggets of truth within each chapter but all of this must be put in proper context. This book seems to suffer from the author's stained view of relationships, but that did not in any way make her blind to some of the many terrible dynamics that plague relationships. This information can be used to further your understanding of some of the misinformation we feed each other because we have been fed lies for so long. It can help you dissect the actions of others and see where these actions stem from. If you have the ability to think critically, this book is for you. If you get emotional the moment you hear buzzwords that you've been trained to get upset over, find another book. This author will challenge your views on relationships, and about how we approach them, and how we behave towards each other.
