Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this plucky, commonsensical guide, pyschotherapist Wolf ( 50 Ways to Find a Lover ) offers lonely singles a host of strategies for finding people to date, gettting past the first date and proceeding to romance. Lighthearted and often humorous, Wolf's advice is substantive nonetheless: her general points include how to communicate (through words and body language), how to flirt and how to cope with social events. Then there are the specifics: techniques for placing and perusing personal ads, finding support, rejecting unwanted beaus and deciding who should pay for what on dates. Her advice comes guaranteed: the publisher promises to refund the price of the book to any reader who does not get at least one date in the year after purchase. At the very least, readers will find an evening's entertainment in Wolf's encouraging company.

Format: Paperback
Although it always helps to read new ideas, or even old ones you haven't considered for a while, this book hardly lives up to its title or its promise. The so-called 'tactics' are nothing more than the common-sensical approaches that everyone ought to take in the dating game, and they don't so much give an upper hand to the reader, as render a level playing field to all involved. The self-help content of this book, therefore, is limited at best, but if you're a really socially uneducated or underdeveloped person, this book is as good a place as any to start. What's missing, is a more clear outline of HOW to bring the strategies in this book into practice. Bland advice like "be confident" is about as useful to the lonely and insecure partner-seeker, as would be, for example, "grow wings" or "double your income."

Format: Paperback
if you're looking for a nice little formula for getting laid, you won't find it. if you're looking for a magic potion that will make your favorite person fall in love with you, you'll be severely disappointed. if you're looking for a new YOU that people will like... well, if you need that, NO book is going to help you.
what it WILL give you is a whole new outlook on approaching interesting and attractive people; hard-headed good advice, and useful strategies for overcomming your shyness. information on how to flirt, proper use of body language, how to recognize signs of incompatibility, and so on. dating is a language, and not everyone is born speaking it. this book is a dictionary. it will teach you how to convey your intent without overstepping bounds, and possibly give you a whole new confidence that can come only with understanding.

Format: Paperback
This book is pretty much worthless for the average male looking to find a date. Most of the techniques would only work if the other person starts out receptive. Obviously, Sharyn has never seen the reaction most of us guys get when trying to meet women. They're usually downright rude. It's not as if one silly not-so clever line is going to make her interested. This book is up there with some other useless advice, such as "just be yourself." I wouldn't be surprised if Ms. Wolf thinks that women just want to find a "nice guy!" That's a laugh.

This book is full of useless stories. Don't waste your time and money on this book. If I could I would give it zero stars.

Format: Paperback
A feel-good book for women. Not as vague as some but the male input must have been gathered at one of those flirting seminars. Its very positive and well intentioned but this really is for women only. "Think of yourself as a ray of sunshine melting ice" "Wear sultry hats". Please.

The suggestions this book gives are so obvious that they are practically useless. If you are still not sure because others here have given it good reviews, just go to a bookstore and browse through it. This book is so devoid of useless information that half an hour is probably all it'd takes, and you'll know what I mean.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book several years ago, after seeing Sharyn Wolff on "Oprah." I was impressed by her straightforward, common sense ideas concerning male/female interaction. The book is written in the same forthright manner. I only disagreed with one idea (be prepared to meet people anywhere, including the laundromat -- my neighborhood laundromat was so scuzzy that I paid extra to use a wash-and-fold service near my office). All the rest of the ideas were outstanding. Wolff's basic premise is to work on being the kind of person in whom your ideal partner would be interested -- have a life, and enjoy it!! I have loaned this book out repeatedly, and recommended it to all of my single friends.

I was a bit sceptical at first, how can you learn social skills through a book ? right ?! Even if you don't want to try the techniques discussed in the book, Wolf will raise your awareness of when someone is interested in you. If you find her techniques foriegn to your personality, start small. Pick an item to try each week. You will be surprised by the responses !!! Good Luck !
