A Guide That Can Turn An LDR Cynic
on March 17, 2005
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.
