Not a run-of-the-mill relationship book, Cathy Burnham Martin delves into the sassy sides of our human nature to reveal why some relationships remain unfulfilling while others blossom and become ultimately satisfying.

Among the important secrets she reveals: •\tAvoiding what Martin has dubbed as the “stresspools” of life •\tWays to earn the Intimacy High Five •\tImmediately-usable tips range from understanding the big and little differences in age, sexuality, empathy, and ways men versus women communicate… and fail to communicate •\tOften hidden signs that a lover is a cheater •\tCoping with a serial liar •\tA Jeff Foxworthy-style twist on why “You Might Be a Control Freak” •\tWhy both men and women can and should be proud of our “bimboism” •\tTurning great expectations into super successes •\tReasons why sensual beats sexual •\tWhen we should trust (but verify) •\tDealing with the importance of dialing down anger levels •\tHow to make affirmations that work •\tVital and applicable aspects to unconditional love •\tGiving genuine forgiveness Cathy Burnham Martin includes plenty of other tongue-in-cheek tidbits and hysterically historical realities of stereotyping. “The Bimbo Has Brains” shows readers how to survive the relationship mazes we forge or find ourselves in while letting a sense of humor maintain our balance and sanity.
