The Bottom Line
Mr. Freeman, aka "Big Boom", is a celebrity bodyguard. He is also a former self-professed player and has left oodles of women in his wake. Now he's found God and his mate, and has decided to publish his tell-all for women everywhere so that they can learn from his former ways.
The concept of Big Boom's book is unusual and intriguing, but from the first page it is obvious that the book falls flat on its promise, and is comprised of nothing more than stereotypical one-liners telling women they are the sole reason why men treat them poorly.
- An interesting concept for a relationship book.
- Poorly written, with frequent grammar and spelling mistakes.
- Hard to follow.
- Full of mildly offensive stereotypes.

Guide Review - If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs Book Review
First off, I want to admit that I found "If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs Book Review," very, very difficult to read. Normally a book of this size would take me a couple of hours to read at the most; Big Boom's took me months. I frequently found myself cringing, either at the unforgivably high number of spelling and grammar mistakes or the strange way in which the book is outlined. As well, there is no mention anywhere on the book's jacket of the religious overtones sprinkled throughout every chapter. The author is obviously unashamed of his Christian beliefs, so not to advise readers of this slant seemed odd, at best.
To explain "If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs," is a challenge. There is no real structure to the book, even though there are numerous chapters to choose from. Filled with strange one-liners and seemingly common sense reminders, Big Boom attempts to share with his female readers how to avoid men like the one he used to be - and fails, as evidenced by the first line of his introduction to the book (typos are his, not mine):
"When a man moves too fast and has multiple, meaningless partners,he's only bursting blood cells and allowing bad energy to enter thewoman."
There isn't any real advice embedded deep within "If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs," (as I was hoping), nor is there anything that a woman can say, "Hey, that's what I can do to avoid a player." Instead, female readers are told they are manipulative tricksters, only out to get material possessions in exchange for sex. It is because of this that I cannot recommend "If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs," as I feel reading it may do more harm than good.
