    Most dating books are written for women - what a mistake that is. Women know how to date....It's men who need the help! At last: a blithe, bold, and bawdy guide to building a better boyfriend.

    Overall

    This book was better than I expected. It is so cleverly written, so concise. Everything may not be applicable personally, which is fine. And some things you may have heard before - which is actually great because most of us guys (and girls) need to hear it again and again. The man-woman thing is so wonderful, but so ridiculously hard to make sense of. While we don't have to make sense of it, it is very helpful to better understand our roles, to catch a glimpse of how the opposite sex sees things so insanely differently, to get a better idea of what actually works. This book does that.

    The book could be beneficial for established relationships, but its also great for those thinking about getting into one. It portrays so many great examples of real relationship life – things that are easy to forget when dreaming about your wonderful girl. The book spells them out, but more importantly for me, it made me feel what those problematic moments are like; it put me in them so that I can prepare myself not just mentally, but more holistically. Its not just great information, but I actually feel changed, knowing that I can handle relationships much better than I would if I had not listened to this book. Of course I'll probably have to listen to it again and again, but at least it is something that I would want to listen to again and again.

    With regards to the narration, I wasn't so sure about it for the first minute or so. But then I realized how well it works with the quick, witty, and colorful writing style. She has a clear, warm, down-to-earth voice and she doesn't miss a beat. Her delivery is also subtle and dry, held more in her throat it seems, so that when she reads the many crazy, funny things, she is able to underplay them, contrasting with the writing and making the book come across (as I am sure it is meant to) in a wonderfully humorous way. The authors must be very pleased. I know I am.

  • Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth

    In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: "Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!" Eker does this by identifying your "money and success blueprint". This blueprint determines your financial life. If your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money, and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it!
