In his heartfelt and truly moving book, Peter Bowd demonstrates an extraordinary thing that women are unaccustomed to hearing- a truly empathetic analysis of male attitudes to women and an explanation for why it is that so many men cannot allow their talented female partners to shine. Refreshingly the Deserving Woman gives us a practical and easy to understand analysis of what it is that many men struggle with - their historical and ingrained need to control and dominate in order to belittle women's strengths and ability rather than nurture and value them. At a time when domestic violence is seemingly out of control in our society, this book is a little gem of light and reason. A salve for the many of us who have struggled with the mystifying oppression Bowd writes of. From his own experience the author has examined an approach that helps to address why these inter gender struggles are so paralysing and gives us hope and suggestions to escape the negative spriral and learn to avoid old destructive relationship patterns.This book is highly recommended.

This book is genuinely written to help men who are ready to really love their partner free from ego, and to guide and inspire boys into respectful relationships. It's simplicity belies it's truths and any woman who questions her worth, and/or finds herself drawn repeatedly into the same type of controlling or domestically violent relationships, or feels invisible within a relationship, would most definitely gain insights by reading this book. For a girl raised amidst a male dominated motor sport, surrounded by egos, it has given me clarity. Read it and buy it for other people you care about, I am.
