I know Chad Stone. I heard his stories that became his book for approximately 2 years before he published it while, we were golfing. You should know that he writes much better than he golf's.

I hope you'll buy it so that he can pay me something for my time. Not really! It was fun, interesting, and hilarious to listen to his adventures as a middle aged Babe Magnet. I'd never thought of him as a Babe Magnet, but that goes to show you. We all have common experiences and that's what his book highlights and helps explain and address.

I was surprised when I read the book how fun it was, and easy to leaf through the pages. I actually read it over a weekend. It actually has some very good advice. I attribute that advice to me-that Chad stole. That I stole from others.

I'm Muller in his book, and all he does is make fun of my own dating behaviors. Going to Europe with women. Difficult break-ups, etc. But that's okay because dating is, we'll its- challenging. But it can be fun and that's what Chad has brought to the book. Fun, thoughtfulness, and a sense of adventure. It really is a primer that anyone could get tips from in the complicated world of dating. I recommend it, and not just because he put me in the book.

Let's face it. Getting back into the dating scene after being married can be confusing, challenging, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet is a memoir about a 50-something guy who jumps back into the world of dating following his divorce. It is well-written and I read the whole thing in a few days.

By the end of the book, you will know Chad Stone's 92 "Babe Magnet Rules". These are not rigid, obnoxious rules, but rather a capsulation of experiences gained when Stone waded back into the dating pool. Some of these babe magnet rules are as equally applicable to men as they are to women (e.g., tips for dating with kids).

I appreciated the author's ability to weave a lot of humor throughout the book. I had a good laugh when Stone was describing some of the profiles from an online dating site (hello crazy cat ladies). The honest and tender tone kept me reading and hoping that the author would find "the one".

As a female reader, I enjoyed the look into the dating experience from the male perspective. I remember back in my dating years, my girlfriends and I would talk about our experiences a lot, replay events and be a good support network. My guy friends would never be open about their dating experiences, so we never really knew what was going on in their mind. This book helps a bit with that, at least from the perspective of a middle-aged, professional guy. Overall, this was a fun and worthwhile read that will appeal equally to women as it does men. Five stars!

When a friend of mine turned me on to Chad Stone's new memoir, I didn't know quite what to expect. But he told me it was right up my alley, and the description was intriguing -- and even better, the sample I downloaded to my Kindle was delightfully funny.

I was hooked right away, and finished the book in just a few days. As a man of a certain age who's taken the romantic "do-over" route myself, I found the book by turns familiar, poignant, and spot-on in its portrayal of modern dating life for the over-40s set. And I learned a few things about how to be confident, suave, and persistent in your efforts to find the right woman, too. I wish I'd read this book years ago.

The Babe Magnet Rules are not to be missed -- there are a few I want to frame and hang up on the wall. But don't assume that this book is some snarky extended joke, like all those so-called "rules" books out there. Stone fleshes out his pithy observations with genuine, well-written prose based on his actual dating experiences. Despite his matinee-idol pseudonym, he describes himself as an average joe...which may be so, but he's a superstar when it comes to optimism and self-honesty. He pulls no punches about his motivations, and it's instructive to watch as he negotiates the modern dating minefield, especially the online version that's become so popular lately.

Babe Magnet Rule #92 is the last and best of the bunch: "A Babe Magnet knows when to stop chasing Babes and commit himself completely to the woman of his dreams." Here's hoping I can put that one into play someday.

This book is a lot of fun, but it's educational, too -- and a bargain at ten times the price. Thanks for the tips, Chad!

I had a chance to read Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet and really found the book hard to put down. First of all, I found the title very compelling, as normally we don't think of "middle age" and "babe magnet" being two terms that sync up. Yet, this book offers a candid, brash perspective of a middle aged man who does indeed become a babe magnet!

This real life story details the life of Chad Stone after he gets a divorce from his wife after he falls out of love with her. Since Chad had been married to his wife for so long, he has been out of the dating scene for many years and is able to approach it with a very fresh perspective. The book details Chad's various dating episodes. Specifically, he meets many women using Match.com.

As a woman, I found this story quite fascinating. We rarely get true insight into where men are coming from, in particular, when it comes to dating. Chad's perspective is intriguing because he is so very honest about what he is thinking every step of the way. Sometimes his thoughts are laugh out loud funny and sometimes they are politically incorrect, but they are always truthful.

I highly recommend this book to women who are interested in learning more about the perspective of the male dater. It also serves as a great guidebook to dating after divorce, and I am sure that a wide range of men would find the tips in the book to be not only entertaining, but also quite helpful.
