    Story

    From the perspective of an 'involuntary' single male, I found this to be an inspiring book. A lot of dating advice that I've come across in the past has often struck me as disingenous or, worse, vaguely manipulative; and while listening to this I realised why: It *is* deceitful and *downright* manipulative, and it was only desperation that had me entertaining it.

    If you're looking for ideas of how to resolve a specific problem, you might be disappointed with this book, and I'd argue this is by design. This book is not a list of relationship tips, but rather an attempt to reframe relationship challenges in a way that is empowering. It's certainly made me see my own situation in a new light, and spend less time 'managing my image', which is code for 'lying about myself so people think about me the way I *think* I want them to think about me'! But I think that's the greatest lesson from this book, that in order to truly connect, you have to know what it is you really want...
