Sadly, this was indeed a case of GREAT marketing... way too great. The title completely oversold the book. What I expected to read was a helpful guide overviewing some of the pitfalls that trip up women and make them self-sabotage on dates. What I found instead was a useless pep talk written by someone who honestly comes across as a 20-year-old college cheerleader. "You're so fabulous!!" and "You are an amazing, irresistable woman!" scream up at you from every page until you want to shake the book and throw it against the wall. Honestly. I wanted to yell, "I know that! I have a graduate degree, I'm not a moron! Tell me something useful." I completely agree with the reviewer who said that Forleo doesn't present a single original idea in this entire book. It's basically a book of other people's thoughts cobbled together in the peppy cheerleader voice. Some highlights:
-- You're irresistable!
-- Live in the moment! That's all there is!
-- Embrace your is-ness (does this remind ANYONE else of You, Me and Dupree when Owen Wilson becomes famous for his series of books and lectures on "harnessing your inner 'ness'"??? No? Just me?Read more ›
That's it. No need for you folks to buy the book. Those three ideas are essentially IT. I realllllly don't appreciate an author who admits within the first few pages that she's lied to us all via her title to get us to buy her book! What would make me want to trust a bit of advice she has to offer after that? Hm?
There are parts to the two negative reviews that I acknowledge and do agree with, which are: 1) the book is told in a peppy cheerleader tone which is at times, annoying and distracting, 2) The underlying messages in the book are few, simple, and straightforward. But if you can ignore the way the message is delivered, you can focus on the actual message. And even if the messages are few and simple, that doesn't mean they're not worth reading or applying in your life.
I'm actually only halfway through the book, but I really liked this fact the author shared with us: "Humans have approx. 50-60,000 thoughts per day. 95% of those thoughts are the same ones we had yesterday. This thinking is repetitive, illusory, and toxic." I do believe women get into these self-perpetuating cycles of complaining and perceived helplessness toward certain areas of life. This type of thinking is pervasive and we'd all be better off without it. This book wakes you up to it, and pep-talks you into shedding complacency with mediocrity, and becoming accountable for (the results in) and fully engaged in all areas of your life. Beyond this, it also gives *terrific* relationship tips. Easier to say/read than to follow, but this book is not a quick fix. It is for those of us who want to improve the quality and meaning in our lives/relationships.Read more ›
2) Make you the center of your life, not him. Have a life first, take care of yourself, and your man will want to do the same for you. That way, you won't be looking to him to complete you. (Because you are already complete!) Both you and he will be happier.
What I liked most about this book is that she shows you how to move beyond "the rules" and still have a satisfying relationship with your guy. As a former "rules" adherrent, I find her approach to be freeing and more natural. Ultimately, that's what we want - to be loved and accepted just the way we are. Not because we executed a set of dating techniques well. It's not about manipulation. It's about living your authentic truths. Doing what makes you happy. (From personal experience: when you're happy, he's happy.) It's not about men vs women. It's about your collective truths - your truths, his truths - getting to know each other as unique individuals. That takes a little more work than following a set of arbitrary rules, but it is well worth it.
This book is unlike any other dating advice book I've ever read. It focuses on showing you how to take care of yourself first, and then how the rest (including your romantic life) will just fall into place. It is the advice women sorely need to hear. Pick this up. Your happier life begins now. Good luck!
