Boston, MA, August 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- More than two decades spent cutting men’s hair has taught stylist Tanya Ntapalis a thing or two about locks. But she’s learned even more about what makes the opposite sex tick. Now, Ntapalis is opening up her vault with “Been There... Done That,” her new book just released from Outskirts Press.
Available through the OP online store (www.outskirtspress.com/store.php), “Been There... Done That” is designed to teach women how to spot the warning signs of unattainable men while celebrating their own inherent strengths. It’s a unique, no-holds-barred ride through a slew of real-life case studies—including the good, the bad and the downright ugly—that no woman can afford to miss.
In prose that’s always confiding and never boring, Ntapalis dishes on the relationship habits and potential heartaches of a wide cast of men—from CEOs to money moguls. Using real-life salon conversations and her own personal experience as a guide, Ntapalis discloses the common (often ludicrous) lines and stories married men use over and over again to snare single gals into relationships. They include the simple “We have an agreement” to the laughable “She’s sick and wants me to find someone else,” and everything in between. Through it all are richly detailed examples of what’s really going on behind closed doors in the lives of these men—and what drives them to behave the way they do toward other women.
But more than a relationship rogues’ gallery, “Been There... Done That” arms women with strategies for combating such efforts by shoring up women’s self-worth. Indeed, Ntapalis’ message isn’t to withdraw from the world and give up altogether on men. Instead, Ntapalis urges women to celebrate themselves and realize the world is filled with single, unattached members of the opposite sex.
“As a hairstylist for over twenty years I have heard some of the most bizarre stories,” states Ntapalis. “That drove me to write this book. My hope is that women will feel empowered, knowing they are not alone, and realize that true, honest and loving relationships really do exist.”
Packed with anecdotes both funny and hair-raising, “Been There... Done That” gels together the untold truths of so-called “regular guys”; the truths few of us know, no one wants to hear, but¾with a little help from Tanya—most of us can avoid.
“Been There... Done That” is now available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and the online bookstore of Outskirts Press, at outskirtspress.com/store.php.
