Every once in a while readers’ demand can categorize a book as a “classic.” Sandra L. Brown’s “How to Spot a Dangerous Man” is one such book in the realm of women’s self-help. Brown’s experience, education and research qualifies her as an expert in the field and she’s offered assistance to all women who may be in, or considering, a new dating experience.
Brown defines a dangerous man as any man who hurts a woman emotionally, physically, sexually, spiritually, or financially. For many women it takes significant time to heal from the experiences, they often continue to choose the same qualities in the next man. How to Spot a Dangerous Man helps women recognize their own patterns and stop the cycle of choosing dangerously.
First published in 2005, How to Spot a Dangerous Man has recently been launched in 5 languages. Dangerous men are not confined to one area of the world, and now women can be educated by the information contained in the book all over the globe and learn to apply the knowledge to make meaningful changes.
How to Spot a Dangerous Man walks the reader through all of the different types of dangerousness and the details, not only the specific traits of each, but how to spot the red flags inherent in each type. Sandra L. Brown walks readers through the specifics with check lists and strategies, along with other women’s insights, offering everything needed to turn around unhealthy dating choices.
With a corresponding workbook available, women now have a complete survival guide working step by step towards choosing healthy relationships rather than suffering through the emotional, and sometimes physical, damage caused by abusive men.
Thoughts on How to Spot a Dangerous Man:
“How to Spot a Dangerous Man” should be read by every woman on the planet.
As a pastor of a growing church I come into regular contact with women of all ages who have been struggling through one dysfunctional relationship after the other. In the past I would offer the best advice and encouragement that I could think of, but now with Sandra Brown’s insightful new book I have the tools to help these ladies make wise choices. This book isn’t just for the woman who can’t seem to find ‘Mr. Right’; this book is also for anyone who cares enough about these women to help them see and understand themselves and those they are drawn too!
Sandra Brown does an excellent job of describing what red flag are, how to recognize yours, and how to learn not to ignore them. She then guides you through recognizing what works for you personally, and what does not. She teaches about boundaries, and how you can develop some of your own.

Jackie, thank you for letting us know that our post had enough impact for you to order the book. I promise you won’t be disappointed with any of Sandra Brown’s books as many others can tell you!
I ordered this book based on your blog post.
Yes Well… many times we are preaching to the choir…when the masses need to pay attention all the more… How do we get them to listen? That is the key question…. What’s the “secret sauce” that we can put on their McD’s hamburgers?? Beats me… LOL LJ
Donna, it’s funny how often one of us have left a comment on such posts and the other has already responded. It cracks me up. I was going to say something I tell others often, that this book should be required reading for both sexes along with Women Who Love Psychopaths.
As I just read in one of Joel Rosenberg’s books tonight, “misunderstanding the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blindsided by it.” Read Sandra’s books if you don’t want to fall prey to the dark souls among us yet again.
Sandra! These books should be a part of every women’s library…. especially those who think they’ve “sworn off men forever…. ” Probably not so! And… every public and college library too! I see you on the campus circuit…busy as a bee! Ladyjustice
