In her previous books, the national bestsellers 10 Bad Choices That Ruin Black Women’s Lives and 10 Good Choices That Empower Black Women’s Lives, celebrated television personality, motivational speaker, and author Dr. Grace Cornish showed African-American women how to kick unhealthy habits, make positive decisions, and transform themselves into self-assured sisters. Now, in You Deserve Healthy Love, Sis!, Dr. Grace goes the extra mile and gives Black women a simple, workable plan to help them find their true soul mate and cultivate a healthy love, from dating to mating—and beyond.

Once again, armed with her trademark “tell it like it is” spunk and her inspiring, on-target advice for women of color, Dr. Grace offers a practical yet empowering seven-step prescription for rich, honest love that will withstand life’s challenges and land a woman at the altar next to her ideal spiritual, emotional, mental,
and physical man. From “Check Your Signals Before You Wreck Your Choices” to “Don’t Be Fooled—Read Him Well and Remove the Mask,” Dr. Grace provides her readers with plenty of insightful tips on how to date with the utmost confidence and avoid the nasty pitfalls that can sink even the strongest relationships.

In the tradition of Dr. Grace’s other spirited, smart self-help books, You Deserve Healthy Love, Sis! is also packed with heartfelt letters from Black women across the country who want to stop settling for Mr. Wrong
and inspiring stories from sisters who have followed these steps and made long-lasting commitments to their soul mates. Poignant, honest, and filled to the brim with priceless wisdom, this book is a must-have for women who are looking to cultivate the healthy love they’ve always dreamed of.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 01, 2003 – In her latest frank, lively volume,"spiritual psychologist" and motivational speaker Cornish (10 Good Choices that Empower Black Women's Lives) delivers a pep talk to single African-American women. She reveals her secrets to attaining a"deep, nurturing, healthy type of love" with a soul mate in her signature hyper-friendly style: variations of the"You go girl" refrain abound, and most sections have rhyming maxims (e.g.,"It hurts to get the later from the smooth operator" and"True friendship at its best will withstand any lifetime test"). Organized into seven sections, the book covers pre-dating issues, particularly baggage from former affairs, dating advice and relationship maintenance. Cornish's guidance is most concrete in when addressing the tricky early stages of courtship."Ten Points to Check Out Before You Let Him In," for example, lists things one should know before becoming intimate with someone (it is, however, recycled from her previous book, 10 Bad Choices that That Ruin Black Women's Lives). Cornish's experience as a therapist on Queen Latifah, Montel and Ricki Lake has given her a colorful well of experience from which to draw anecdotes. While tales of drug-dealing scoundrels who impregnate multiple women make for interesting reading, those in less dramatic situations may find less to relate to. Because of the extremity of some of the examples, her subsequent advice often lingers at the most basic level of common sense--i.e., if he's married, don't get involved. But Cornish is a warm counselor and a good listener, as the many reader letters within will attest, and this book concludes a solid trilogy of advice books aimed at African-American women.
