"Finding Your Matched Opposite" Should be the Title!
on January 30, 2012
I would give it more a 3.5 star rating, here's why;
So Nicholas Boothman is better known for his, "How to Connect in Business in 90 seconds or less" and "How to Make People Like you in 90 seconds or less" - So I guess that's why he entitled his book as such to keep the theme going, but honestly it should have been titled more towards the "Finding your Matched Opposite" theory he talks about in his book. That theory / belief in this book he introduces is what makes this book very special.
It talks about how we shouldn't look for people who are exactly like us, or so different from us, but similar enough and different enough, that you would compliment each other. Just like we have a right hand and a left hand, both the same, but different enough to work and intertwine together. That was such an eye opener and made me think long and hard about women, and trying to figure out who I am - because once you know who you are, you can now confidentially know who you would go good with.
The book also talks about a lot of great pointers about how to build rapport with the person you are meeting and how to get comfortable with someone you just met. In a way it feels like this book could have been two different books, one actually being the "Love you in 90 mins or less" and the other of "Finding Your Matched Opposite."
Just beware that this book consists of very analytical reading so not something you can just flop down and read - but incredibly useful in helping me understand myself, and building connections on dates.
