It's a fun, insightful book, full of concrete advice and wise strategies that illustrate how honesty, self-awareness and forthrightness do win the right man in the end and weed out the losers, playboys and toxic flirts.

Review by phoebesmum
A disappointment: I’d read a number of novels by Lauren Henderson, and had assumed that this was a work of fiction. It is, in fact, a dating guide – not something for which I have a lot of use! Although, as to being a work of fiction: just how likely is it that the author really knows all those couples who so perfectly illustrate every relationship example she presents? This one’s going straight to Oxfam, I’m afraid.
