5.0 out of 5 stars It really is the best dating advice, May 25, 2013
It seems there is an abundance of dating and relationship experts these days especially in the US and I have to admit to having spent a good many pounds buying into their 'programmes', books and advice. However, Dr Ali's previous book, the Tao of Dating, followed by this little gem really make all the others seem a bit pointless. The things I particularly like are that the tone is always such that you know this guy really does want you to succeed and to have the best dating experience possible. The other is that even if dates are in short supply (I'm 57 and know all about that)then there's work you can do on yourself regardless, and at any age, which will enrich your life. The whole premise throughout is that your fulfilment - how you feel either in a dating context or not - is the most important thing. And so it should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars for all women, however smart...., May 2, 2010
Dr Ali's style is no nonsense, but gentle - like a kind brother or friend. The book uses both a scientific and spiritual approach. There are lots of good practical suggestions - for example on where to meet potential dates, and how to spot men who ultimately won't be able to measure up but also there is the spiritual Tao side which helps one to let go a little and trust in the abundance of the universe.
I thought the book had two main themes - one is to be the best version of yourself you can be for your own sake and working towards that. The other is the insight into the way men think and what is important to them and appreciate it is different from women, but no less valid. Knowing what matters to them helps you interact differently and more successfully - and to be prepared if things don't go quite as you hoped.
Like one of the other reviewers I don't fit into the professional, IQ off the chart model - but the advice and ideas put forward by Dr Ali will apply to all sorts of women. The book has helped me to understand how important it is to be myself and that being authentic is so much more attractive.
There's lots of great information in the book, and I have read it through more than once - in fact writing this has reminded me of so many good bits that I'm going to read it all again.
