Editorial Reviews

Review

“Based on scientific studies as well as firsthand stories, this little guide is what you need to help master the challenges of long-distance relationships.”—McClatchy-Tribune News Service
 
“It doesn’t mean your relationship can’t last just because you and your sweetie are going to different schools this year. Author Tiger uses quizzes, checklists and her own first-hand knowledge of the situation to teach how to endure the separation and make it work.”—Metro

Format: Paperback
As a veteran of several LDR's, I feel particularly qualified to review this guide. Before this charming book, I was a committed LDR skeptic due to all the commonly known reasons. This witty guide is upfront and honest about the pluses (yes, there are quite a few) and minuses of an LDR. If you find yourself in an LDR, and want to make it succeed, you can do no better than this. Through quality reporting and interviewing, the author has gathered a large amount of real world evidence on how to make an LDR work. It quickly and amusingly goes to heart of what makes these relationships thrive (or not). In comparison with many dating manuals, which are often dumb and depressing, this little guide is smart and funny. Guys will appreciate the book's organization, which lets you quickly flip to the appropriate pages on game day. Everyone will benefit from the book's practical tips (negotiating with your employer, handling the visit, etc). Plus, the guide's the perfect size to slip into your pocket and read on the plane or Amtrak! If it can make an LDR cynic reconsider, this book does something right.

Format: Paperback
This book gives good tips about every aspect of an LDR, but at the same time it doesn't take itself too seriously. There are funny parts, like a list of how you know you're cut out for an LDR, suggested songlists for mix tapes, even suggested scripts for those monosyllabic types who might be bad on the phone. It's a relationship book that you can give to a guy--which I did, to my LDP (long-distance partner), who's in grad school in Wisconsin. Hopefully he'll follow some of the book's advice and pull off a surprise visit.

I thought this was an adorable book. It has a lot of cute suggestions and advice, and it is written in a very easy to read format where the chapters are sub-divided up and use a lot of bullets so that it is quicker and easier to pick up for a quick glance than something with long paragraphs and drawn out stories. I plan to highlight the more useful parts then send it to my sweetheart as a surprise gift (one of the book's suggestions).

Format: Paperback
There are some good ideas and some fun things in this book, but overall I found that half of the book was really a waste of space (a list of LDRs in history? It could have been interesting but this author doesn't make it so). It seems to me that the author tries too hard to be funny and it becomes distracting. There are some good topics covered, but overall I'm not very impressed. It's not a BAD little book, but it's too pop-culturey to be taken seriously.

Format: Paperback
This is really light, fluffy reading. It's also a rather small book, in terms of actual book size. It's humorous and pretty cute, and it might make a good read for an airplane trip to see your sweetheart, but it's rather low on the solid, practical advice. It's the kind of book you might give as a stocking stuffer to a friend in an LDR, but it doesn't have a lot to offer if you're looking for real relationship help. There are better LDR books available.

I've given this cute little book to friends who's boyfriends are in the military. It covers everything from travel tips to phone sex to creative ways to let your partner know you are thinking of them--I bought one for myself, even though I live with my boyfriend!
