The Alpha Female's Guide to Men and Marriage: How Love
by Suzanne Venker
America is in love with the alpha female. She’s the
quintessential modern woman—assertive, razor sharp, and fully in
control. Her success in the marketplace is undeniable, a downright
boon to society. But what happens when the alpha female gets
She becomes an alpha wife, of course.
An alpha wife is in charge of everything and everyone. She is,
quite simply, the Boss. The problem is, no man wants a boss

their marriages less competitive and more complementary. Part
