As a dating & relationship author, I am constantly looking for new information about any aspect of love or romance. When I first saw this book, I'll have to admit that it was much larger than I'd expected. I tend to be attracted to smaller self-help books that can be carried inconspicuously, or stuffed in a pocket or purse. But this isn't one of those. It's a large book, and there's nothing subtle about it.
But after my shock at the size wore off, I realized that bigger may indeed be better. After all, this isn't one of those "brown bag" type topics about how to have a better orgasm or how to cheat on your spouse. It's about how to be more romantic. And who doesn't want that?
After I spent 30 minutes flipping through the 1001 ways, I realized I already had about 30 good ideas for new romantic things to try on my sweetheart. Better yet, I knew exactly how to get my husband to actually read the book and join me on my path to romantic utopia. Yep, you guessed it ... the book is now a permanent fixture in our bathroom.
It's filled with lists, which automatically makes it a good reference book. Plus, the lists make it a lot easier to read than you would first think. My favorite list was "7 Ways to Woo a Workaholic Away from Work."
If used in daily doses, your love life can't help but improve. The author gives romantic tips from the inexpensive and realistic-like taking a walk together-to the over-the-top-cash-in-your-savings type ideas-like converting your lover's entire record collection to CD. For each unusual idea, there's also an approximate price ($6,500 to convert the records to CD, if you must know) and contact information to help you execute every romantic idea listed.
Bottom line-A romantic adventure a day will keep the divorce lawyer away, so don't get married without it.
