First off, I think that this is a good book that most young women will enjoy reading. Since we already know so much about these authors in a dating sense (we visited their homes and met their families!), it makes for interesting reading.
Bachelor II was my favorite in the series because there were actually high expectations that this format would work. Since then the romance/reality angle was become overworked and I think Trista and Ryan finally burned us out.
But I think these women have something interesting to say. After all, they are intelligent women who have probably been obsessed with the dating subject for a few years now. Some of the highlights include:
• Look Beyond Looks: Looks have become less important for me. I don't care if he's on the cover of GQ magazine, if doesn't treat me well, what's that? Nothing.
• Pump Your Own Gas: Gwen has had luck at the self-service island. "Guys will pump gas right next to me and they'll peer around and start talking. You'd be surprised how many people do that."
• Make Sure He's Single: Be wary of the separated but not divorced. Somebody's who's already in a relationship and trying to start another one would be a deal breaker.
• Watch For Family Ties: Listen to what the guy says, about his relatives. If a guy has a good connection with his mother, it says a lot. If there are problems with his family, they'll be problems for you.Read more ›
I bought Bob Guiney's book but got bored to death with his excessive explanations of himself and could only skim and look at the pictures. "Nobody's Perfect" is actual a self-help guidebook and entertaining reading....stories we can all relate to, even for a male reading this book. Helene and Gwen did an excellent job and can be very proud of this. It's definately worth the few bucks it cost.
I can't decide whether Aaron should be classified as "Senor Don Juan", "Mr. Me Me Me" or "Mr. Cad". Our poor Bob is "King of Denial".
Nope, I'm not a friend of the authors. I did get an advance copy through an unusual channel and I loved almost every word. The book is really cute and a quick, fun read. This could be mood enhancement therapy for any woman who had EVER dated a jerk--that's about everybody, right?
Have Amazon or Borders send it, secretly, to your office mailing address. Read it at lunch when your "to do" list gets too long, or on the subway, or in the bathtub (umm, at home?). I guarantee you'll giggle, smile, even gaffaw.
Helene Eksterowicz is a psychologist so it isn't like some ex-beauty queen who never married is telling everyone else how to do it right. It's more like two girlfriends want everyone to laugh and learn from their own mistakes. They do that well.
One day, I saw it on a table and began reading some segments and, much to my surprise, ended up reading the whole book.
Personally, I found it humorous, witty, interesting, and fairly accurate in describing how some of us males behave on our dates.
Both write with interesting flair, and should be commended for their efforts, especially when it is their first book.
Neither may actually have a PhD, but both appear to be more rational than some who actually do.
