SECRETS OF FASCINATING WOMANHOOD: A BOOK REVIEW

“Fascinating Womanhood is an immensely powerful force for good in your marriage. However, it also gives you the knowledge to manipulate men. Please strongly resist any

Temptation to abuse it in this way.” – Disclaimer by the author of Fascinating Womanhood

Review by Faith Oneya

Any self-respecting feminists will vehemently disagree with some of the book’s contents in principle. The case made for fascinating womanhood appears to be strongly rooted in the bible( Even though the author takes her sweet time to make a disclaimer to nullify this) and makes for an interesting read, whether you are feminist or not.

The book promises to “To show you how to unlock all the love and tenderness in your husband.” In ten simple steps.

The book borrows heavily from the renown “Fascinating Womanhood “Course and promises the readers certain things as listed below;

  • Save your failing marriage.
  • Make your good marriage better.
  • Unlock all the love and tenderness in your man.
  • Develop your full potential as a woman.
  • Increase your self-confidence.
  • Feel happier, lovelier, and more feminine.

The book is written in simple, everyday English that would appeal to the University professor and the “Mama Mboga” with limited education and makes for a very interesting read in the 220 pages that offers testimonials, real-life experiences and practicals (Different sets of homework).

The fascinating womanhood journey is shared through the experiences of Angela, a woman separated from her husband. The story continues to be told through different experiences of the women taking the fascinating womanhood course, all with excellent results (an exaggeration, perhaps?).

The book seems to fundamentally hold good intentions, and can be easily forgiven even for the instances when it starts sounding preachy and quite 18th century, I must say.

All in all, the book provides practical solutions for women that are willing you make their marriages work and subscribes to the school of thought that it is the women who make relationships work.

Feminists and spinsters too will enjoy the different levels of expressing femininity described so vividly in the book.

  1. faith i think the book arms a woman with all the tools to have a happy marriage at the same time giving her the powers to control events in her marriage…..the way Angela turns things around for herself is just powerful.A woman can control everything without the man realising that he is being controlled..win win situatution and power to the women

    1. I know this may sound cynical but this call sounded quite unrealistic…to say that with a little manipulation, a man will eat from the palm of a woman’s hand?
      What was missing for me were the other factors at play: culture, different personalities, self esteem of the woman…where are these things in this romantic story?

  2. self esteem is what angela had desotryed and with help she was able to build her husbands esteem,his personality was not factored in at first but when angela learnt how to deal with his personality and not to abuse his ego then life is smooth all the way
    However i agree with you,a marriage that was so damaged could not have been repaired that easily

  3. In fact when someone doesnt understand then its up to other visitors that they will help, so here it takes place. dcgfckcdddgf

  4. An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write more on this topic, it won’t be a taboo subject but typically people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers edaadcfcgedd
