This book is not a how to date book but a book that allows you to learn ways to get to know more about your date. I had no idea how many ways there are to find out things about a person.

What I liked about this book was that its main theme was to open your eyes to the huge impact technology has on the way we meet and interact with people. It also allows you see that while we are all surrounded by technology many people either do not know how to use this technology OR are not aware of all the things available on the internet.

There are references to web sites in almost all the pages. I found myself reading the book for part of the time and checking out all of the websites referenced the other part of the time.

The end note of the book is for you to put yourself out there to meet people; in an informed and safe way.

This book presents some interesting case studies of dates that were debacles and worse, and tells how to avoid such hazards by checking up on the person you hope to make your significant other. However, "Investidate" can't be used if you're looking for quick advice. If you think you might be dating Mr. Goodbar and you want to run an IMMEDIATE check on him, this isn't the place to look.

There's no index of online sources here, no reference run-down of website addresses at the end of the book. The addresses of all the recommended websites are imbedded in the text. These addresses are not even highlighted or printed in bold type. So you can't quickly pick them out. In other words, you have to read the whole book in order to get suggestions for ways of checking up on people. You have to read this book and take notes BEFORE you start meeting strangers.

Perhaps author Maria Coder purposely omitted having any easy listing of resources in order to make people buy the book, rather than cull from it as they stand in the bookstore. However, she does include a list of her own websites on the back page where you can get more information on Investidating.

I love this little easy to read user friendly book and I loved the topic titles. Not only do I enjoy reading the book my daughter enjoys the book as well, and truth be told, I purchased this book on Kindle in the hopes it would help my daughter and her peers choose better individuals of the opposite sex. This book is also an attention grabber.

I heard about the book on the Steve Harvey Show. This book is awesome. It's an easy read that is packed with helpful information. I thought I knew it all but this book opened me up to more information.

One of the smartest things I did years ago was hire a private investigator to check on someone before I started dating them.
Turned out the guy was released from prison for robbery and beating a guy severely.
Now with the information that this book offers, one could find out this and other information via the Internet. Much cheaper and simpler!
Thanks to the author for giving us tips and web sites to check out.

I heard about this book on Dr. Phil's show. For me, it is great; it has numerous references to research things people do, use, or tell you. I am not street wise and never felt I needed to be, but in today's dating world street-knowledgeable is just what I need. I will suggest this book to others for the source information is a treasure. It's informative, entertaining, an easy read, and I found it difficult to put down.
