I liked audible more before it was taken over by Amazon
Best advice is from the guys who've been married for a long time. Also, the advice on what she looks for when entering your place.
This book was short and concise and an easy listen. It was not Pope John Paul's "Love and Responsibilty" but if I want that I will read it, again, maybe a few more times. This was a light hearted look at how not to be obnoxious and that certainly is THE first step in finding a companion. I especially liked the essay on how to be charming; it might well have been titled "First Steps Toward Developing Character". This little gem was itself, charming. There's definitely some junk in here but there is some treasure too. I can reccommend this book for entertainment and to get you thinking. Just don't think this read is going to solve any serious problems.
If you like the magazine (I do), you will enjoy this book. It's nice to hear a woman's voice saying what a woman enjoys. Some of chapters are quick and concise, makes it nice if you want to stop and pick it up later.
I wouldn't purchase this if you want a real connection with a woman. Maybe this would help you date a low I.Q. self obsessed stripper from L.A. but no one you'd enjoy having a relationship or frankly having sex with. The book is obsessed with a crass point of view that focus on the usual marketted version of "Talk her into taking her pants off". "Pretend to respect her" is an actual quote. The overly macho dialogue and bad writing makes this book complete garbage. I was hoping it would have descent open minded perspectives that would create quality connections since one of the authors was a women. NOPE. It's painful just listening through it.
This is mostly just obvious dating advice that's regurgitated in every men's magazine on a monthly basis. What isn't ovious is appalling--women suggest they actually base an entire life-changing decision on such things as whether your bed is up against a wall and how many forks you have in the drawer. Because character is SOOO overrated. The section on "charm" is especially disgusting and manipulative.
