BOOK REVIEW: Deep Within I Knew He Wasn’t For Me
Shamay’s book is a good read. What I liked about it most was that she used it to do some reflection on all the red flags she ignored in previous relationships. Additionally, she allowed others to tell their stories about domestic violence, infidelity, and other relationship red flags. These women, and one man (yes, the fellas got some shine) bore their hearts telling their stories and identifying the red flags they chose to ignore while being desparate for love.
The book is short, about 200 pages, so it can easily be read in one sitting. Or, if you’re like me and only have a small amount of time to read for pleasure, you can read it in sections. The book is broken up into 4 sections. In part 1, Shamay shares 3 stories of her love life, starting from her teenage years. I really appreciate her starting there as so many young women don’t have an example of what to do much less what not to do when in a toxic relationship. In part 2, 7 women of different ages share their stories. I love the age differences because it illustrates that we can learn these lessons young or old. Part 3 is the guy’s story. He reflects not only on the red flags he missed in a relationship but also the red flags he had to own that he held himself. The final part breaks down different types of red flags men can exhibit. This helps women to identify these behaviors early and run!
While I really enjoyed the content of the book, I do wish there was better editing so it flowed easier. As the book has numerous authors you can see it in the writing styles. But it isn’t so bad to make the book a pain to read. I was still able to fully enjoy the lessons and the content and you should too.
All in all, I recommend this book for all women, young and old. Please, if you have a young woman of dating age in your life get her a copy. It could help save her a bunch of heartache.
