From Publishers Weekly
How is it that you receive dozens of personal e-mails and texts every day but have nothing do come Saturday night? Author and narrator Martinet gets to the bottom of the paradox that while the world is more connected than ever, many people are still isolated. The book presents practical suggestions for brushing up social skills, becoming more confident and seeking out fulfilling friendships. Martinet's ability to read with warmth and authority makes listeners feel they are receiving good advice from a trusted and wise confidante. Her delivery conveys care and concern, and she is excellent at addressing her audience's concerns and alleviating anxieties. This is one listening experience that may just change your life. A Stewart, Tabori & Chang hardcover. (Mar.)

This work is a delight, filled with wisdom and laughs from someone who clearly understands the new age of relationships and how to cope - nay - triumph.
The Negative: The author has a weird fetish about sex and often adds obscene mentions of it without warning, and without virtue. Unfortunately, some other moral issues cropped up as well. Being honest doesn't seem to be high priority for her, therefore some of her advice recommends lying and deception in order to make life easier. Lastly, the author does not steer people away from preventing drunkenness but involves alcohol in almost every situation. Alcohol can be avoided many times with creative, healthier options.
Filtered, this book can offer some good advice on putting away the internet and really building friendships with people. Life is short, people matter and the author clearly realizes that.
I stumbled upon this book, looking for a housewarming gift. Not only was I highly pleased with my purchase, but I bought three more (two for friends, and one for myself).
From how to meet new friends to deepening and maintaining current relationships, this book covers a wide range of social situation how-to's, all illustrated with humorous anecdotes. It's a pleasure to read.
Bottom line--this book got me off my butt and out with my friends.
Written from her own experiences, Jeanne Martinet bares her secrets. 7.8/10

I decided to 'unplug' for a couple of days and it was great fun!
