    A must read for anyone that's in dating mode...

    ...simple to follow instructions to getting into a better dating situation. He gives a great picture and diagnosis of why many people don't have success with dating, and a few good strategies for developing the skill.

    I did not give it five stars because:
    - it seems like most of the book is written for women. Men need help too, and in many cases more than women
    - the advice given to men is a bit simplistic. Go out and talk to more women. Really? It really is that simple bit the mental blocks need to be addressed before action takes place.

    This is not an unabriged book

    The book has good ideas. But please be aware that this is definitely not an unabridged book. It's about the same length as the abridged version. It's no where near 4 hours long.

    Eye Opener

    For those who need help understanding dating, get this book. It opened up my eyes with things I never got, and this book has ideas on how to truly find someone worth dating. I look forward in growing as a result and know what I have to work on. If the writer ever sees this review, thank you.

    15 unfruitful years, I wish I found this sooner

    I am a Christian. throughout my life, I have tried many different mindsets and methods, seeing each fail and leave me fruitless.

    as I persevered through each, I slowly had my eyes opened to the flaws that allow very committed people to fail and be left unsaid and wondering why.

    if I had found this 5 years ago, I very well may have kept a super awesome lady I like a lot and lost.

    get this. buy the hard copy too. buy 3 copies for your friends. you won't regret it.

    Good, Sensible Advice ... just wish that the Age References would expand beyond the 30 Something

    Would love to see another book that addresses to a wider ‘age’ audiences. There are more ‘singles’ in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond today.

    Good listen overal. Thanks!

    A must read for all singles!

    I love how well this guided and helped me to grow in how to see dating. I believed a lot of wrong ideas and was stuck in my dating. My mind was opened and introduced to how to date well.

    I live it!

    I wish I read this book when I was in college. Selfdiscovery and working through my internal issues would have been a lot more fun with my dates. I realize that dating for no reason is fun!

    changed my life

    This book changed my life. As a Christian girl I was under the impression that dating was something totally different. If I had known this 5 years ago. I would be a different person today.

    very helpful; could use updating in a few chapters

    extremely useful, powerful, practical. Did feel like the chapter "where's the testosterone" was a bit much in terms of gender stereotypes versus truths. The rest of the book was helpful and I would still recommend!!

    insightful and clear advice on dating

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

    I recommend this book highly. I think it provides clear, realistic advice. Empowering advice. As you go throught it, the author provides the biblical basis for the advice. As a Christian I value this. I don't think, though, that it will get in the way of any non Christian enjoying, understanding and benefitting from the advice (speaking as someone who was a non Christian for a large part of my life).

    Revolutionary

    This book has been a paradigm shift for my views on dating and relationships. It has completely changed the way I approach my love life. The many lasting friendships I made with members of the opposite sex, as a result of following the program outlined in this book, has been a phenomenal and enriching experience. The lessons and insights to be found in this book are invaluable, and it is a shame that many people will enter into doomed relationships merely due to never having the chance to learn these valuable insights.
