Share Article

Many women find themselves either stuck in a bad relationship or repeating the same story with a different man in a different setting only to wind up just as frustrated and disillusioned. In her book Stuck with Mr. Wrong, Ten Steps to Starring in Your Own Life Story (August 2010), author Amy Beth O’Brien uses the analogy of filmmaking to show women how to stop playing best supporting actress, extra, or antagonist in their lives, and to choose instead to take center stage and be a Star.

O’Brien, who discovered this unique strategy, shares her real-life experiences, those of many other women, and stories we all know and love from the big screen, to help readers live more empowered lives both in and out of a relationship. O’Brien’s authenticity, wit, and humor make her book as entertaining and uplifting as a girls night out on the town.

In Stuck with Mr. Wrong? she teaches women how to connect to the wisdom within and re-write the scenes of her life. With more than 100 tips, writing exercises, case studies, and films, she brings the reader along a path of empowerment in ten enlightening steps, including:

  •      Embrace your inner screenwriter—confronting fears and writing a new script
  •      Listen to your director—trusting intuition and following your wise inner guide
  •      Learn your lines—speaking assertively and standing up to mistreatment
  •      Edit your film—cutting those things from your life that no longer serve you in order to make room for the things that do.
  •      Accept your Oscar—honoring your life as the Star of your Own Life Story.

Stuck with Mr. Wrong offers women a new and inspiring way to look at their relationships with men. This book is for any woman in a relationship she has doubts about, hoping to find a new strategy to make it work better, and for any woman considering or experiencing a breakup or pursuing a new relationship and looking for a better approach.
