    How? It will take some effort to completely change my viewpoint and behaviors. Unless there is some quick way I don't know about.

    As a man, the alpha nature is in you already. You intuitively know what it looks and feels like.

    When you hear the words, "Oprah Winfrey Show," you should be aware of a spark of rage deep inside you, no matter how small. That's a manifestation of your alpha nature. When you see a lavish wedding ceremony all for the benefit of the bride and the groom looks like he's not sure he should be there, the spark that you feel is your alpha nature. You will feel the spark when you see a woman berating her husband in public.

    Meditate on that spark. Here is your mantra: "A woman is the least of my concerns."

    i think the gist of it is to be assertive and confident. don't be surprised if some of that advice backfires on you. some of us women really aren't into being told what to do, even if "experts" say we are biologically predisposed to want direction and commands. but then again, some of us women aren't into head games and don't want to be in a relationship with people who play around like that. another way to look at it is to decide what YOU are going to do (whether that's where you're eating, how you're spending your afternoon, or what mood you want to have), and ask her if she'd like to join you. honestly, self-help books have been recommending this for decades. you can only control yourself, and followers will follow if you lead confidently.

    for example, BS like this: "Women want men to rule them, protect them, guide them, tell them what to doÖ itís just the natural order." Pfft... right... men like to think this (and maybe it works for some women), but that attitude would not get my husband anywhere with me. at the same time, the author talks about groups of women trash-talkinging their husbands, and i agree with his advice there. if my husband was in a group of men trash-talking their wives, I would never stand for it. why on earth is it okay for women to do this to their husbands? i've actually stood up against my friends before because they were verbally denigrating their husbands.

    lol.
    that would only work if i loved you and knew that you (as my love) were joking. my husband has pulled this on me many times, and if i wasn't feeling the love i'd just laugh and walk on by. then again, according to the descriptions, my husband may be a bit too alpha. and if i had married a beta, i would have ditched him long ago because i'm NOT a princess.
