Your expertise and knowledge on the subject of marriage and the Black family was greatly appreciated for our forum. The congresswoman needed an expert and an African American male to talk about the subject of marriage and why African Americans are opting out of marriage.
You captivated the audiences’ attention with your stories about the Obama’s and the Clinton’s, and also completely engaged them with questions about how Black men view Black women and vice-versa, and how to respect each other so that we learn to create win/win situations that will help our marriages work.
It was pleasure working with you on our CBC forum, and we will definitely call upon you for speaking engagements involving marriage and families in the future.Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton
Dr. Shane understands Black men, and he clearly loves Black women. Unlike books that shame and scold women for making bad choices and decisions, this book helps women unravel the reasons why we sometimes make poor choices and provides a blue print for making better ones. Through a blend of science, experience, kindness, warmth and humor, he explains why every man is not a potential “Mr. Right” for every woman. This book provides useful insights for both single and married women, and would make a great gift for young women.T. WhitakerGreat gift for single or married women
This book is amazing!!! Dr. Shane has captured all the questions that I struggled with as a dating woman. I love the section entitled, “seven subtracting that will help you fly (First Love Yourself). If you do not work on self first, it’s no way you will be ready to love someone else, much less say no to Mr. Wrong. I have copies of this book for all my close girlfriends as Christmas gifts and so far they love it as well. I highly recommend this book.
Dr. Shane is on point with this book! A must read if you have often wondered why you keep attracting the same type of man and it never works out. Do yourself a favor in 2016 and read this book. Bravo Dr. Shane!Maurice GlennA Black Man's take

This book begins with the historical perspective of black marriage and makes reference to the distrust among black men and women due to the trials of slavery, Jim Crow, etc., which is a different perspective and certainly adds context. It also identifies come of the root causes of relationship problems and proceeds to provide solutions that are a missing piece in many books on this topic. Finally, glad to see the author answered my question: Why is a male addressing this subject?! Interesting and helpful.1AvidReader
