A good book for guys too Feb. 17 2011
By mac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Guy's perspective: This is a great book. I read an interview with the author and she seemed funny, smart and honest. She seemed to be talking about something no one talks about. So I bought the book and am really glad I did. I'm a white guy who likes Latina girls. There don't seem to be any books for men about interracial dating. I had a lot of questions that I was afraid to ask. While this book is written from a woman's perspective, it really gave me insight into other cultures and how both the men and women feel dating within and outside of the culture. The book is unusual in that it is both funny and serious at the same time. The advice seems spot on. The author explains that while it ultimately depends on the individual (what he or she is like) there are usually common themes that exist within cultures. Knowledge is power. So if you are interested in dating people from different backgrounds/cultures, this is the book for you. You will have a much better idea of what to expect. It is a page-turner and written in extremely readable prose--like you're getting good advice from a funny and outspoken friend. I read it in one sitting, and i'll probably read it again.

What a Big Wonderful Messy World This Is March 30 2011
By Art Activist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've never had an interracial relationship. But several friends have, or are in one now. So I've sometimes wondered what goes on behind the scenes, as it were.

'I Got The Fever' is no scholarly tome on the subject. Far from it. But that's one of its strengths. It's an irreverent, sometimes poignant, often hilarious look at culture clashes within the dating scene. Based on some good, solid man-on-the-street (or rather woman-on-the-street) research, it really dives into the nuts and bolts of things. Who knew that East Indian men often smelled of curry? Or that Asian men prefer their women "au natural" in the, ahem, southern regions.

And the personal stories that illustrate some point or other are priceless. Maybe this book was originally intended only for those adventurous souls thinking of cross-cultural dating. But it's really more than that. Anyone interested in how this planet's many cultures can live together should give this a read.

It was a curiousity to me and Ms. Davies did a lot of research/dating. It was a funny book, could use it as a reference to future dating.

Superb! Feb. 14 2011
By Nan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a unique and interesting way to present a subject that is not always talked about! I found it delightful in its humor and certainly essential for anyone who is a potential interracial dater. Hopefully this book will start a dialogue as needed throughout this country. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Funny, irreverant read March 15 2011
By Christelyn D. Karazin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is for the interracial dater who doesn't take life so dang seriously. As a black woman and author myself, I love the frank, tell it like it T-I-IS that Davies brings with this practical guide. There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with giving generalities about culture, because let's be frank, they do exist! Davies helps the interracial dater to better navigate the rainbeau pool, not only using her personal stories but the book is jam-packed with hundreds of interviews from people or all races and ethnicities. Definitely worth the $11.95.
