A remarkable departure from the typical catch-a-husband guide, this 13-step plan for marriage-minded women is likely to lead not only to the altar, but also to strong and healthy marriages. As credentials, Jordan cites her expertise in teaching Fortune 500 companies how to set and reach clear-cut goals, 25 years of successful marriage to a man she met by following her own plan and the similarly successful experiences of couples from her "Marriage Plan" seminars. The plan is based on a rock-solid foundation: the reader must know herself and her core values, create a "profile" of her soul mate, and harbor and express the true desire and steadfast faith that he will show up and marry her within a year. While Jordan professes, "Focus and desire cause things to happen," she goes further to advise women to fearlessly let go of men who, though they may display many positive attributes, do not fit their individual soul-mate profiles. Once a relationship begins, Jordan recommends that women and their men be completely honest with each other, not play games, and build a deep, true friendship before moving into the realm of romance and sex. Jordan delivers positive, practical guidance and refreshingly rational encouragement on every page. Her map for the quest of a life partner will lead readers to a treasure chest. (Dec. 26)
