As a dating/relationship author and online advisor I'm always interested in what others have to say about this popular subject. So when this book appeared I went out and bought it right away.
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.

It's been 30 years since I sat down and read a 200+ page book from cover to cover in one sitting. I did this last night with Helene & Gwen's book. It is very easy reading especially for people who are use to this message board. Each chapter describes a different type of guy that should be either dealt with, corrected or avoided all together. It is done with delightful humor, incite and guidance in a short story format.

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".

Get this book! Get it fast!
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.

I can definately relate to the guys profiled in this book and than some! I personally thought the book was highly entertainning. Would recommend it specially to anyone out in the dating scene or anyone who just wants a good laugh. The authors are not down on men just relating stories of all the different characters you encounter as you open yourself up to go out with a perfect stranger that you hope in the back of your mind may turn out to be Mr. Right and Forever. By the way, I don't want to get in to a war of words, this is not the appropriate place, but I am not a so called "fake" and my personal opinions carry the same weight as anyone else's. I hope all reviewers will take the high road and not resort to Jr. high antics.

Just read Nobody's Perfect and I thought well, it was perfect! Loved it cover to cover, could not put it down. It is not a clinical self-help book just a lighthearted and extremely funny book about the dating scene. I think anyone who has ever dated can relate. I have been out of the dating scene for a while but it still brought back memories of some of the loonies I encountered which helped me to recognize my own prince when he came along. f you are a real prude you may not like the saucy and straight forward talk but if you haven't lived your life in a bubble you will not be able to put the book down and you will get some big laughs.

I must confess not being a fan of the Bachelor show, but my girlfriend is and purchased the book.
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.
