"Many women don't know why they experience unhappiness in love, let alone understand how to improve their situation and start living more rewarding lives with nurturing partners. Audrey Valeriani has isolated the major cause: a lack of self-esteem and self-worth. In Boot Camp for the Broken-Hearted, she draws on extensive research, interviews, and her sessions as a successful relationship coach to help readers repair those fractured but salvageable relationships or start solid, enduring new ones. Written in a friendly, girlfriend-to-girlfriend style, the book outlines proven tips and strategies to arm readers with the necessary skills to attain the kind of intimate romantic relationships they've always dreamed of. Valeriani is an equal-opportunity helper, too: the book includes an in-depth look at the elusive male psyche and details what men say they would like women to know about them." ~ [...]
