March Urban Fiction - Michael Baisden

Never Satisfied: How and Why Men Cheat
Michael Baisden
Urban Non-Fiction, Relationships

Michael Baisden (born June 26, 1963) is an African-American author, motivational speaker, host of the TV One talk show, Baisden After Dark, and host of his own nationally-syndicated radio show. (Retrieved Wikipedia, 3/10/10)

Never Satisfied: How and Why Men Cheat, reveals everyone's part in the game: the tolerant wife or girlfriend, the despicable other woman and, of course, the conniving cheater himself. No stone is left unturned.

After reading this book, I felt that Michael Baisden should have stuck with fiction. This book was just like all the others. It tells us that basically men were born to cheat and that we must simply accept a man as a cheater. There are some key points to look for, but this book has quickly become outdated based on the technology that is used in the book, such as pagers. Pagers are rarely used, but I guess you could just replace the pagers with cell phones and the same principles would apply.

I have always believed that a person will only do to you what you allow them to do. This simply means that if you allow a person to get away with something the first time, it is like giving them a free pass to do whatever again. I do understand that there are different reasons for staying with someone, but why stay in a situation if there is no trust? You will always wonder what that person is doing, even if the situation may be totally innocent.

What are your views on cheating? If you read this book, do you think the scenarios are realistic or far fetched? Have you ever been cheated on or have you ever cheated? If so, what was the outcome of the relationship?
