The Alpha Female’s Guide to Men & Marriage


buythebook_newHave you ever been called a control freak, an overachiever, or even a drill sergeant?

Do you sometimes feel superior to your husband, as though he needs you to show him how to do things? (How to dress, what to say, how to shop, etc.)

Does your marriage sometimes feel like a giant power struggle?


In The Alpha Female’s Guide to Men & Marriage, bestselling author Suzanne Venker helps women own their femininity, or find their inner beta, in order to find peace and passion with a man.

An alpha female’s take-charge nature may work well in the marketplace, or even as a mother at home. But there is one role in which it doesn’t work: as a wife. 

When the alpha female gets married, she becomes the only thing she knows how to be: an alpha wife! An alpha wife micromanages, delegates and makes most or even all of the decisions. She is, quite simply, the Boss.

Problem is, no man wants a boss for a wife. That type of relationship may work for a spell, but it will eventually come crashing down. 

There’s an art to loving a man, writes Venker, and any woman can master it. An alpha female herself, Venker learned the hard way how to be a wife. And here’s what she knows today: The set of skills a woman needs to pursue a career, or even to raise children, is the exact set of skills that will destroy her marriage.

Part memoir, part advice, this brave manifesto argues that while marriage is more challenging for the alpha female, it is possible to find peace in your marriage. In fact, it’s easier than you think.

      In The Alpha Female’s Guide, learn how to:

  • RELAX!
  • Align your expectations with reality
  • Trust your husband
  • Be satisfied
  • Manage conflict
  • Let go of unnecessary fear

The Alpha Female’s Guide is a smart and provocative book for women who’ve been raised to be independent at all costs or to be resentful of men and marriage. Using her own story as a model, Suzanne Venker shows how a simple shift in attitude is all women need to find peace with the men in their lives. If you’re a woman who feels successful in life but unsuccessful in love, look no further. The Alpha Female’s Guide to Men & Marriage is your answer!”
— Susan Page, relationship expert and author of How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together
