From the Inside Flap
It's time to stop leaving love to chance. Time to stop being too shy to meet someone, wondering why a promising first date wound up going nowhere, or realizing too late that it happened with the wrong person anyway. Nicholas Boothman has a much better way.
Drawing on his expertise in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Boothman charts a three-step plan that will help anyone find the love of his or her life. Step one: get ready-- come to know who you are through honest self-assessment, and then to know what type of person is your matched opposite-- i.e., the person who completes you. Step two, the heart of the program, is working seriously on interpersonal skills-- how to be charming, not alarming; flirt with confidence; synchronize body and voice to create trust and chemistry; keep enthusiasm high; even how to cast a wide social net and dress for a first meeting.
Step three is about accelerating the kind of intimacy that leads to love, by finding " Me too!" triggers and mastering the art of incidental touch. You'll learn to tap into key emotions through low-, medium-, and high-risk disclosures-- and how to intensify the nonverbal signals that turn sparks into a flame. All the while you'll establish a solid romantic foundation to convert this magic 90 minutes into a lifetime of love and commitment.
From the Back Cover
He shows how to recognize and attract your matched opposite―the person who will complete you―and then quickly nurture feelings of love. At the core of this simple, valuable book―now completely updated to fully address online dating―are dozens of simple verbal and nonverbal communication techniques to help you kindle the romance and accelerate intimacy. That's why his mail from readers so often begins, "Please come to my wedding."

I would never have bought the book on the title alone because the title means something completely different to me. So I think it is a bad title.
I would recommend this book to someone looking for additional insight in the dating field and finding true love.
So Nicholas Boothman is better known for his, "How to Connect in Business in 90 seconds or less" and "How to Make People Like you in 90 seconds or less" - So I guess that's why he entitled his book as such to keep the theme going, but honestly it should have been titled more towards the "Finding your Matched Opposite" theory he talks about in his book. That theory / belief in this book he introduces is what makes this book very special.
It talks about how we shouldn't look for people who are exactly like us, or so different from us, but similar enough and different enough, that you would compliment each other. Just like we have a right hand and a left hand, both the same, but different enough to work and intertwine together. That was such an eye opener and made me think long and hard about women, and trying to figure out who I am - because once you know who you are, you can now confidentially know who you would go good with.
The book also talks about a lot of great pointers about how to build rapport with the person you are meeting and how to get comfortable with someone you just met. In a way it feels like this book could have been two different books, one actually being the "Love you in 90 mins or less" and the other of "Finding Your Matched Opposite."
Just beware that this book consists of very analytical reading so not something you can just flop down and read - but incredibly useful in helping me understand myself, and building connections on dates.
While the title of the book does relate to the material in the book, the title is hyped and gimmicky, whereas the book contents provide an important learning experience.
The bottom line is - if you are willing to do a little work, get yourself out meeting people at different events, clubs, theatres, etc., you will eventually meet the person that matches you. I would recommend reading his other book first, as he refers to it often (How to Make Someone Like You in 90 Minutes).
I always love date and relationship books for women written by men, because, well, they know their stuff first hand. Moreover, they usually cut the crap that other books for single ladies give. This is also the case of the author here, who makes a great job at giving advice, reasons for the advice, and offering tips and techniques to practice what he preaches.
The concept of matched opposite is truly helpful, and makes complete sense, even though many women find themselves pursuing men who are like them, a version of themselves, not the best man for them.
The fact that the author was a fashion photographer in the past, really shows, as his advice on how to dress and present yourself is really good. Nothing really new, or wow, but still you know it comes from a professional.
The book has given me many tips to go and practice next time I see any guy that catches my eye, things that I usually oversee or forget to do, not realising how important they are to get the attention of any man, beyond the looks. I have been practising his advice of looking at the colour of somebody's eyes to learn how to make eye contact, and it really works. There are many tips you can put into practice.
One of those books that you go back to check for advice over and over again.
