Women Have All the Power - Too Bad They Don't Know It!

Women Have All the Power Book Review

These days, quality relationship books for women seem to be few and far between. One book will tell you having more sex will keep him from cheating, and another will tell you that never telling your cheating husband that you know about his affair is the best thing to do.

Trust me, I understand that not every book is going to have all the answers, but overall, what I'm missing from book publishers these days are simple: authenticity and reality. These days, it's as if publishers deliberately publish nonsense in order to keep us in the dark, perhaps so we can desperately buy the next "solution" they've put forth for us when the new bestseller no longer brings in revenue.

In spite of this, I've discovered several great gems while sorting through the mud pit, the most recent of which is Women Have All the Power: Too Bad They Don't Know It. If you're truly ready for information that will open your eyes to a new perspective on relationships, this book is a natural read that thoroughly breaks down the missteps women have taken in their relationships by giving control over to men who don't deserve it in an effort to gain love. (Notice I said "men who don't deserve it", not "men period".)

"[Women Have All the Power] is ultimately about men and interacting with them," explains author Michael Lockwood in the Introduction. "Not being able to handle yourself and your self-esteem as it relates to men can be devastating."

Lockwood's inspiration for writing is to provide knowledge about relationships to his own three little girls, who aren't old enough to read or comprehend the material. However, as a family man himself, Lockwood also understands that every woman, no matter how she carries herself, is still someone else's daughter, and thus, he seeks to provide knowledge to them as well, especially if the absence of a father figure has adversely affected their ability to connect respectfully with men throughout their lives.

Book Synopsis & Breakdown

Broken down into seven basic chapters, Lockwood starts off with the chapter Aren't You Tired?,where he discusses the core issue that has kept, and continues to keep, women powerless within their relationships with men. This is a shockingly simple, easily fixable problem, he maintains, shifts a disproportionate amount of power to the men in these women's lives who have no issue taking advantage of this high-level vulnerability.

Manology chapter follows up with a strongly backed lesson on men, what they're like, their thought process and their mannerisms. You won't be surprised to hear Lockwood remind you that men are literally very simple creatures, but you may be interested to learn his 10 rules for making a man chase you, the best places to meet men of character, and alarming red flags that let you know he may not be the one for you.

Stay in Your Lane gets to the heart of why reveling in your traditional role as a woman allows a real man to step up into his traditional role as a man, and how you can use this to your advantage while searching for the one. This chapter also touches on the truth about submission, and why submitting to your husband or boyfriend does not mean allowing yourself to be stepped on, but allowing him to demonstrate his leadership abilities (another thing you should look for in a quality mate).

Keeping the "Piece" and "Give Him a Peace" are chapters on how to manage two important factors within your relationship that every man needs: sex and peace of mind. You'll be given explicitly detailed suggestions on how to respectfully manage sex with your man while dating, as well as things you should do that demonstrate your ability to be a sensual, loving and supportive virtuous woman, one he will be proud to bring home to his mother, as well as brag about around his friends.

The New School Woman and No War and "Piece" discuss the challenges and observations brought up by the shift in today's non-traditional society, including the obstacles women and men face when it comes to planning a family while enjoying a career, keeping the lines of communication open for sexual intimacy and non-sexual marital intimacy and how to create a harmonic balance in your marriage.

Is It Worth the Read?

Yes, yes and yes! Women Have All the Power is an intensely enjoyable, honest book written from a father's perspective. This is not the book a shy and timid father would give his daughters, one that would only say "Keep your legs closed and don't be fast." Nor is it an non-engaging essay about how women don't get what it takes to keep a man happy, and if they don't just jump through all his specified hoops that he'll cheat.

This book is wisely written with the seasoned words of a man who has been there, has done it, and has observed it. Lockwood's candor might be a little much for someone who would rather hear a politically correct, words minced instructional on how to politely keep a man interested and happy, but at the end of the day, as fed up as you are with constantly attracting the wrong men in your life, you'll gladly overlook this to get to the truth.
