From Library Journal:

Grant, who runs relationship seminars and writes an advice column for Essence magazine, gathered the wisdom and advice in this book from a variety of sources: psychological studies, works by other black authors, and her own mother. Specifically addressing black women, Grant explains how slavery made black women and men the way they are today. She also discusses stereotypes held by men and women of color about each other and calls on her readers to use Afrocentric values to transcend such harmful stereotyping. While Grant is writing for black women, much of her information transcends race. Her outlook on the importance of self-esteem and her ten steps for emotional healing will appeal to all women. Addressing an underserved niche in an overcrowded field, this book deserves a place in most public libraries.?Pamela A. Matthews, Missouri Western State Coll., St. Joseph

From Publishers Weekly:

Grant, a psychologist, sex educator and advice columnist for Essence, here offers sensible, inspiring suggestions to help African American women better understand the cultural differences between black men and women, and better understand their own attitudes about their "brothers" so they might communicate more effectively and form long-lasting relationships with them. The author emphasizes exercising independence, forming friendships with other women of color, drawing strength from family and the community and reclaiming African traditions in order to lead fulfilling lives, even if remaining single. Practical, insightful and loaded with case histories, this guide should be of great interest to black women who feel they are "nothing" without a man. $85,000 ad/ promo; Doubleday Book Club and Literary Guild alternates; author tour.
