Because the Browns are such strong writers, as well as experts when it comes to relationships, I knew "Finding Mr. Right" would be a good read. But since I'm not searching for Mr. Right, I didn't think the book would be relevant. Was I wrong!
If ever there was an "every woman" book, this is it. For single women searching for Mr. Right, the book offers sage how-to advice. Meanwhile, for single women assessing past relationships, the book provides the equivalent of a road map; it shows how and why a guy who seemed like Mr. Right turned out to be Mr. Wrong.
Coupled women will also gain valuable insight from this book. The Browns provide a wealth of information about how best to nurture a relationship.
Every now and then a book comes along that you want to keep within easy reach because it will be referenced again and again. You know the kind of book: its binding is cracked, the cover curls, and the pages fan out as a result of excessive handling. The wisdom shared by Josie Brown and Martin Brown in "Finding Mr. Right" ensures this book will be one of those dog-eared paperbacks you own.

What really ring true here is several things:
1. Many of us don't know what to look for, in a relationship; and that's because we have preconceived notions of what "love" is;
2. Sometimes we sabotage ourselves, because we don't feel worthy of the love that comes our way.
3. And many of us don't spend enough time seeking out potential relationships. The authors, Martin Brown and Josie Brown, use the analogy of a work-out: if you go to the gym, your muscles will get a workout. Same thing with dating: if you make yourself available and date a variety of men, eventually you figure out what you want -- and you're more likely to find him, too.
I always love the information in their articles that appear in SingleMindedWomen dot com, because the authors tell it like it is. If you get even one thing out of this book that moves you in the right direction, then it's certainly worth the price.
