Publisher's Summary

The man who will love you forever is out there right now. Do you know how to find him, meet him, attract him, and keep him in your life? This book shows you how.

Can you have it all? I believe that smart, successful women can have both a great career and a rich, warm, fulfilling love life. See - smart women like yourself were having unfulfilling love lives on an epidemic scale when I was an advisor at Harvard. They either couldn't find the right guy, were with the wrong guy, had relationships that didn't last, or had given up on dating entirely. So I wrote this book to remedy the situation. This is not your grandma's dating guide. Partially because I'm not your grandma, and partially because the 21st century poses unprecedented challenges to the modern woman. With a high-powered career, it may seem that there just isn't time for love. And nowadays, lots of guys are less educated and affluent than you. What to do?

Ancient Wisdom + Modern Science = Lasting Love & Happiness For You

This book combines ancient wisdom with modern science to give smart, successful women like yourself a heart-centered, science-based, practical guide to finding fulfillment in your love lives - and far beyond. I give it all to you in a series of small, easy steps that put the fun back in dating, plus the science and reasoning behind it so you can trust where it all comes from.

    Story
    "Logical & Valuable Guidance to Transform!!"
    Would you listen to The Tao of Dating again? Why?

    I bought Dr. Ali's book the first time it was on sale and I listen to it often. "Often" for me adds up to over 130 hours of listening time to date! I listen to Dr. Ali during my runs ... over and over ... in order to hear reminders and to listen for valuable nuances that I missed the first time(s)! I find the ability to jump to specific chapters to listen to the messages that I need (at that particular time) very helpful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Overall, what I like best about Dr. Ali's audiobook is that I get to hear positive, no nonsense advice on dating / relationships. In addition, he makes sense and I really like that he focuses on being authentic.


    Have you listened to any of Ali Binazir, MD’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to Dr. Ali on YouTube & tele seminars and he is equally dynamic and interesting to listen to. I can tell that he's doing the work he loves. His passion on the topic of dating absolutely shines through in this audiobook!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Tao of Dating?

    I learned a tremendous amount of valuable information from Dr. Ali's book!

    Here are some of the highlights that I have benefitted from:
    - a healthier approach to relationships
    - how to *not* take things personally
    - the importance of being clear on what I really want
    - re-focusing on feelings of fulfillment
    - the value of gratitude (and other approaches)
    - how to get the attention of the guy I'm interested in
    - how to *apply* what I learned about dating to my life
    - and there's much more that I'm still working on.... :)


    Any additional comments?

    Non-native English speakers will find Dr. Ali's audiobook easy to listen to. He's articulate/easy to understand, not too fast and gives examples that illustrate the point.

    "Wow! Spectacular Book! Just what I needed!"
    Where does The Tao of Dating rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best audiobook I have listened to date. It is overflowing with life changing information presented in a way that is easy to consume. I devoured this audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tao of Dating?

    One of the most memorable moments of hearing the author read the Tao of Dating came at the beginning. The caring in author's voice when he described why he wrote this book. He conveyed a depth of caring that moved me and renewed my faith that good men do exist.


    Which character – as performed by Ali Binazir, MD – was your favorite?

    not applicable


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I have read/listened to many dating books and this one is the best so far. It creates personal growth and gives techniques for finding, attaining and keeping a great man. I am hopeful for my future success and highly recommend this book to every single woman.

    Story
    "Better and different!"

    As a career woman and divorcée, I turned 40 and swore off dating for the year because it seemed like a talent-free area for me. As I listened to this book I was thoroughly pleased with the insights provided, and I will listen again and again, in addition to recommending to all of my girlfriends, single AND married.

    This book is genuinely different because it neither talks down to us, encourages us to hide our intelligence nor doles our rules we find unnatural. Instead it shows smart women how to use our brains to our advantage. The only thing I'm left wondering is whether the author is single :)

    Cheers and best wishes to us all!

    "Best Dating Book I've Read"
    Where does The Tao of Dating rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am not a huge audiobook connoisseur, but I have listened to enough of them to appreciate the unaffected American accent this book is read in and the overall superiority of the content of the book itself. I do read a good number of personal development books, metaphysical and philosophical/scientific stuff as well, and I was very impressed at how well the author wove together ideas from mysticism to rank and file scientific data in an interesting, easy-to-follow and enlightening way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tao of Dating?

    Really well-presented exercises. Also, the breakdown on how to recognize different "types" of men and the kinds of experiences each might be able to provide was very helpful. I especially liked the 100% non-judgmental tone of the book and the feeling of open-mindedness I sensed was behind the intent of the book. In other words, I felt it was written from the point of view of helping the listener define for herself what she wants in a "fulfilling" relationship and does not assume she's looking for a husband, a mini-van and 2.2 kids--although if that were the listener's goal, I feel this book would help her select based on what would actually be fulfilling for her within those circumstances rather than just getting the "menu" without getting the actual "food" (an analogy offered by the author). There is a really nice "core values" exercise I felt was very enlightening that supports this a great deal.


    What does Ali Binazir, MD bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It felt like I was hearing from a guy friend or relative, which I liked. Also, some of the visualization/guided meditation exercises are really great to have on audio.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I was interrupted because I had to go out to meet a friend--which was cool because I was able to see myself already integrating the information I received from the book when I was out on the town that night. I finished it the next day then started a second listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I am thankful that I found this well-written, well-researched, deep-yet-practical dating guide. I have lots of dating/relationship books on my bookshelf, but this is probably the only one I wouldn't be a little embarrassed to have someone see me reading. Very well done. Smart and helpful. Highly recommend.

    Story
    "Life Changing. Just Get It"
    Would you listen to The Tao of Dating again? Why?

    Uhm I am already. It's amazing. Dr. Binazir tells you everything you need to just become the best version of you AND find a guy based on what matters to YOU. The lessons from the audiobook just really resonated with me and I find myself just becoming way more attractive to myself, first and foremost, and to men as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I expected it to be another audiobook on tips and tricks, but it turned out to be the most life changing book ever. I am thrilled to have found this book. It contains so much wisdom.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked all of it. The meditation exercises are enlightening, and Dr. Binazir is funny sometimes too. Most of all I loved that a man who genuinely cares about women is telling you why you are awesome and what you have to gain from loving yourself. I mean does it get better than that? No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    How to be the Yin to his Yang (lol)


    Any additional comments?

    The only way you could not benefit from this book is if you are 100% perfect. Seeing as we can all improve, I'd highly highly recommend this resource, because it is invaluable.

    "General content good"

    I liked the focus on reclaiming the divine feminine. The turn-off for me was in the last third of the book...the "how to." I am a grown woman & interested in a relationship with a grown man, not a boy whose "fragile ego" (author's words) I need to be careful not to harm, & whose ego I should manipulate with my divine feminine ways. The divine feminine & divine masculine are not ego-driven & self-serving, quite the opposite. I got the book because I was curious, not really because I need dating advice. I'm going to keep being my authentic self, living my life. I dont need or want a contrived relationship just to say I'm coupled. Recommend: Yes, but ignore the how-to section for the most part & get out of the ego, live your life & be authentic.

    "Love, love, everything he said in the book. Bravo Dr Ali!"

    He brings to conscious what is unconscious in dating so that we may become more enlightened. I appreciate his approach and attitude about men and women. This is real progress!

    "Very well rounded advice all around."

    Worth the time. This author understands men . Have yet to approach one first but except for that I enjoyed it's insight. Take Nothing personal really helps.

    "Great Insight!"

    This book is a must read and totally exceeded my expectations. I thought that is was well written, well constructed and well read by the author as well. I was a little hesitant at first but once I read all the reviews I was willing to give it a try.

    I already read a lot of spiritual and self- help books and love to figure out my own journey anyway I can, but this just added value and validated what I already knew. It brought more focus to it and gives great tips for finding your own inner peace, especially with the dating game.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone that is currently dating or would like to find a long term partner in the future, especially finding someone worthwhile. And even if you just take the tips to better yourself, it would be worth reading/listening!

    Will continue to recommend this to friends and referring back to my notes.

    "Great book!"

    This actually wasn't really a dating book it was more about personal self awareness and how to maximise your skills and relationships and ultimately self fulfilment (not primarily based on "getting a guy"!)
