I recommend this book highly. I think it provides clear, realistic advice. Empowering advice. As you go throught it, the author provides the biblical basis for the advice. As a Christian I value this. I don't think, though, that it will get in the way of any non Christian enjoying, understanding and benefitting from the advice (speaking as someone who was a non Christian for a large part of my life).
"A must read for anyone that's in dating mode..."
...simple to follow instructions to getting into a better dating situation. He gives a great picture and diagnosis of why many people don't have success with dating, and a few good strategies for developing the skill.
I did not give it five stars because:
- it seems like most of the book is written for women. Men need help too, and in many cases more than women
- the advice given to men is a bit simplistic. Go out and talk to more women. Really? It really is that simple bit the mental blocks need to be addressed before action takes place.
"This is not an unabriged book"
The book has good ideas. But please be aware that this is definitely not an unabridged book. It's about the same length as the abridged version. It's no where near 4 hours long.
"Overall a great book, wish I would of read it earlier"
Great book as it point out the things we are doing wrong but don't realize it. Get this before you miss a good one
"changed my life"
this book brings amazing balance to how you should be dating it also enlightens you to prove you should become while you're dating and said a proper perspective and tone for what dating really is and what day did really should be
It's great but I'm still unsure how to date 5 women at a time without them I being furious at me.
"Read this for a new perspective on dating!"
Loved this book, opened my eyes to a new way of thinking about dating - a more fun and less serious approach! When I shared what I was discovering with my friends, they laughed - apparently they've been trying to tell me these things for a long time. The book and the stories actually helped in sink in, in a way that could make a difference! Highly recommend!
"Great book for avoiding the wrong person."
Pros: Describes how to attract and involve yourself around other people that you may not think are your type and how to be patient in being yourself and learning a person. Amazing advice and inspirational book .
CONS: Very repetitive book so you will read the same sentences in every other chapter. I am a smart person. I do not need to have some of main points repeated over and over again
"Wonderful Resource for Christians Seeking Love"
Wonderful book and great advise! This book gives practical advise to those whose are seeking love and following Christ.
"Good advice, but to much preaching."
The relationship and dating advice in this program is good. It helped me see the bigger problems with a recant relationship that ended badly for me and I'm going to take the advice in this program moving forward. But it gets a lower score overall for me because of the heavy amount of christian/bible preaching. This is more of a personal thing with me as I am an atheist. But I will always listen to anyone's opinion and research to help me grow, as a person and intelligence. A lot of what's covered makes since and is something to keep in mind when out there dating and in more serious relationships. Worth a read even to the non christian (just roll your eyes at those parts, it helps).
Dr. Henry Cloud communicates some weird ideas about dating that I strongly disagree with, and he does so in an arrogant tone that drove me crazy. Got about halfway through and had to quit.
