Product Description (from the back cover): It’s time to acknowledge the obvious: You can’t change your man - but you can change your relationship for the better. In this groundbreaking new guide, author and psychotherapist Sally B. Watkins shows you how to regain control of your relationship, not by nagging, overanalyzing, and fighting, but by altering the way you view your partner. With specific strategies to help you accept and embrace his as he is, Change Your Mindset, Not Your Man will help you:

  • Explore how past relationships affect your current thinking
  • Decipher why your man’s behaviors bother you so much
  • Decide the best course of action for dealing with your partner
  • Reposition your thoughts in a positive way
  • Understand the reason he hasn’t changed despite your best efforts

Full of thought-provoking exercises and myriad case studies drawn from successes in her own private practice, Ms. Watkins helps you see your relationship in a brand new light. By putting her lessons into practice, you can finally arrive at a happy place in your relationship!

The General Review: Change Your Mindset, Not Your Man is a practical guide on how to stop picking at the flaws in your partner, trying to get him to change and how to focus on the good in the man you fell in love with. Filled with simple, effective wisdom and advise, Change Your Mindset, Not Your Man will not only change your mindset about relationships, but will also change the expectations you have for yourself.

Likes: Throughout every chapter, the author challenges the reader to examine their thought process and beliefs. Watkins gives practical applications on how to truly change deep rooted mindsets. She gives lists of questions to ask yourself and how to analyze your thoughts and motives.

Dislikes: There is honestly nothing about this book I didn’t like.

Closing Comments: I HIGHLY recommend this book for all women, even if you don’t think you nag or are trying to change your partner. The man in your life will truly appreciate it. Actually, I know a few men that could benefit from reading this book. Change Your Mindset, Not Your Man is an excellent resource, even if you’re not in a relationship right now.

Sally B. Watkins will be my first guest blogger!!! Look for her post in the next few days.


  1. I suppose it would be unwise to buy this book for my wife as a gift, eh? There's probably a chapter on that... "What Not To Do"...

  2. Sounds like a good read for women. My mom told me long ago (my parents have been married over 20 years) don't plan a future with a man you think you're going to change. Love them for who they are and if they change for the better, it's just a bonus. This book sounds like good practical advice!
