**This disclaimer is for every woman who will be interested in reading this book for whatever reason. My primary audience is men; however, I will not dare exclude you from the contents thereof. Please women, I plead with you; don’t nag or take this material as your license to confront your man on what he may have done, is doing, or may not be currently doing. This approach will be counterproductive to the true intent of this literature. Men have certain comfort zones, frames of reference, unspoken codes of conduct, and mentalities; in which you as a woman, will never understand or have access too. In other words, step back and allow me to talk to him. **
