Publisher's Summary

She used to make the same mistakes we've all made with men - until she realized that the winning formula to attracting the right guy lay in skills she already had. As a successful saleswoman, Jess has practiced the techniques in promoting a product, finding the right approach, making the pitch, and closing deal after deal. Once she started to apply these same techniques to the dating scene, her love life made a complete 180, and she found herself with more interested men than she knew what to do with.

    "great book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this book to a friend? Why? Because she is going through some of the examples the author mentions and even though most of it is common sense it always sounds better coming from someone else...I dont want to be the bearer of bad news....plus its better getting advice from someone who is impartial to the situation..great ideas by the way and an intuitive way of putting across the authors views and observations.

    Id highly recommend this book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Lost Him at Hello?

    Read this book while driving 9 hours....loved it...made the trip seem a hell of a lot shorter....but no definitive moment stood out above all others sorry..


    Which character – as performed by Julia Farhat – was your favorite?

    all


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    parts made me laugh...the inner cynic and the knowledge of having been somewhat in those shoes at one time or another...


    Any additional comments?

    where was this book when I needed it?

    "Not very impressed"

    Didn't like the tone of the voice and the fact that this book was written as a collection of short stories

    Story
    "Excellent overall advice for straight single women"
    What made the experience of listening to You Lost Him at Hello the most enjoyable?

    No-nonsense points that truly hit home. For example: if a man is showing a low or moderate level of interest in you, don't agonize over "why", "what did I do wrong?", "but I thought we hit it off, why isn't he calling?" or any of the other dead-end paths women tend to go down. Simply note that he has a low or moderate level of interest in you, and adjust your expectations accordingly. It seems obvious now but I could have used this advice years ago.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Lost Him at Hello?

    One quibble with the point of view: It felt to me like this book had an underlying tone of the old-fashioned premise that it's women's job to attract / do the right things to get the men to like them, and the mens' job to either be interested (and hopefully lead to marriage proposal) or not. Kind of like men still ultimately hold the cards, which I don't agree with.THAT BEING SAID, I still think there were many, many excellent points and advice in this book. I may be a feminist but I still made MANY of the mistakes she talks about, and she is spot on in her observations.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Farhat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Listening at 1.5 or 2x speed (don't remember) was absolutely perfect. Her voice had a positive, clear and interesting tone that brought the text to life very nicely. However, I found it to be incredibly slow going at normal speed.


    Any additional comments?

    While many of her examples seem to be about quite young women (college / early 20's) which can be a bit of a turn-off for those of us in the 30s, 40s or even 50s age range, there is still great, universal material here for straight women trying to navigate the world of dating and meeting men.

    "One of the best books I have ever read"

    Jess is amazing at this. I have struggled so much with dating. This book has changed my life. There are some other good books to add to this, but this one for me at lest is a must! It's simply a must.

    "Written for a different demographic...."

    But still really solid advice, not just for dating, but for life. If you can wade through the coed life context at the beginning, the meat of it is very good.

    "Best dating book ever read"

    This was the most comprehensive and helpful dating book - it covered so much and in such a relatable way. An added bonus is it also helped give tips on selling - which as a salesperson was an extra bonus. Eye opening and insightful. Highly recommend.

    "Life changing!"
    Where does You Lost Him at Hello rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book should be taught in school. I wish I had read it sooner.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dating principles


    Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Farhat’s performances?

    I hope not. The narrator can be slow. I honestly wondered if it was a computer voice at times.


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

    Don't give away your "bullets" too early in the relationship


    Any additional comments?
