Book Description

Since 1986 New York based psychotherapist Marilyn Graman and Maureen Walsh have offered a weekend workshop entitled "Having What You Want With a Man" that has helped thousands of women find husbands and rewarding relationships. Now for the first time ever, the information presented in that workshop is available in a book! There Is NO PRINCE and Other Truths Your Mother Never Told You is a modern melding of traditional wisdom, post-feminist thinking and personal discovery that gently shows a woman what is in the way to her having what she wants in a relationship. This wise guide for women of all ages takes readers step-by-step through the process of preparing for, finding, choosing, managing and enjoying having a man in her life. There is NO Prince helps women get to know the enormous power they hold with their lives and with their men and overturns old ideas and wrong information about relationships, revealing secrets about men every woman should know.

Whether dating for the first time in years, moving on from a relationship that isn't right, or nursing back to health the relationship they are already in, women will discover
* the underlying issues that are keeping them from having the relationships they want
* practical, simple ways to shift and heal what isn't working and become irresistible
* that loving themselves is central to having what they want with a man.

There Is No Prince is Graman and Walshs' second relationship book in a series on the subject of having more of what you want in life taken from the technology and wisdom taught in workshops, seminars, retreats, intensives and individual sessions since 1984. Their first book, The Female Power Within: A Guide to Living a Gentler, More Meaningful Life was applauded by Arianna Huffington as "a ground-breaking exploration of the nature of women's power".

There Is No Prince is a truly liberating guide to a 21st century relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for women March 5, 2004
One thing that is common among both men and women is that unconscious beliefs hold us back and often keep us repeating our mistakes over and over. There is no place this is truer than in relationships. "There Is No Prince" examines how a woman's unconscious beliefs may limit her relationships and keep her from finding the person who is right for her. For example, waiting for your prince to come and sweep you off your feet. Look inside yourself, honor and be true to yourself, find the right relationship with you and then find the right relationship with a man... or don't. You really do have a choice. This is an insightful guide to creating the relationship you want; "There Is No Prince" is a highly recommended read.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Stop Shopping for Relationship Guidance July 29, 2003
No Prince is a no-nonsense approach in helping unveil what is in your way to having the relationship you want. The book is written in a very conversational, approachable manner which is easy to relate to and digest. It's non-pedantic, non-preachy, user-friendly tone is threaded with first person stories making the relationship issue feel universal and and moreover an issue thatis healable and open to resolve.
It provokes thought and tilts your head to look at yourself and your future direction in a new light. I have referred to it and reread it several times. A must read for all women in search of a loving, realistic relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best guide on relationships I've ever read. September 14, 2003
I LOVED how this book lead me through a step by step process of uncovering what it is I really want a man for and then preparing me to have him enter my life. I learned: how to become irresistible to a man; that loving myself is central to having what I want in a man; the best place to meet intelligent, successful men; how to know when to say no to a man who is not right for me; how to recognize and choose a man who is right for me. And so affirming and respectful of the relationship process.
For women like me who have had their hearts broken over and over again, following these steps will empower us to choose a man who is perfect for us. This book wisely guides us to "dismantle old romantic ideas about dashing princes on white horses coming to take us away". Included is the best information about how men really are that I've ever seen. I'm SO ready for this and am well on my way to 'man'ifesting a happy relationship!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Information In this Book July 24, 2003
The information in this book helped me get married, and is keeping my marriage on track. What is amazing about this book, is that my man doesn't have to do any work, and I'm happy. Pretty great, huh? My husband loves the effect of this knowledge - I'm much less critical of him and able to understand him. I recommend this work to everyone I meet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emphatically not a one-sided or male-bashing book February 9, 2003
Collaboratively written by Marilyn Graman and Maureen Walsh, There Is No Prince And Other Truths Your Mother Never Told You is a relationship self-help guide for women in the 21st century. It is emphatically not a one-sided or male-bashing book; it is a denouncement of the exaggerated ideal of a "prince," that is, a perfect man who always does everything right. There Is No Prince shows women the way to accepting that men are human; that men have a greater natural tendency to forget details than women; and that while most men want to please their mates (the ones that don't want to aren't worth pursuing), nearly all men need help and that all women need to speak up and communicate their wants and needs because it is unfair and self-defeating to expect a man to magically or telepathically know what is going through a woman's mind. There Is No Prince is an enthusiastically recommended book about taking a realistic and practical road to true love and contentment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empowerment for Women and Men January 28, 2003
I love this book because it rings so true. I see myself in the examples, and identify with the challenges of recognizing and breaking negative patterns. This book debunks the myth of the prince and many other societal beliefs, allowing women to own what they really want and freeing men from unrealistic expectations. It teaches a process of moving into choice rather than operating by default in relationships. It empowers women to take charge of getting their needs met, with a man, and it all starts from the basis of loving oneself. All women should read this book. I can't wait until a similar one for men is written!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life! October 5, 2009
I purchased this book about 5 years ago. I had been going from awful relationship to awful dating practically giving up on men completely. Then as I was browsing through the book store one day I came across it and it looked hilarious so I had to read it. Wow, what a great surprise. This book is amazing. It dissects all the idiotic things we all do as women and puts some honest perspective in who we should really be looking for. Thanks to this book, I let an incredible man who had been knocking on my door for years back into my life. I don't think I would ever have given him a chance if this book didn't open my eyes to what I really wanted and needed in life. Read it, it will change your life for the best. I have given it to 3 single girlfriends and they are all happily married now!!
