Bravo, Marilyn A.!!
This is dating humor and advice from someone who's been around the swamp! As a licensed psychotherapist and counselor, I see a lot of women who keep kissing these frogs and can't figure out why they don't turn into princes (To be fair, guys encounter froggy girls, too) Even if your particular frog might turn out to be someone else's prince, he's not going to transform for you. Anderson's advice -- livened up with her own illustrations -- is to jettison that frog!
This book is fun, yes, but it's also really helpful to women who just can't seem to get that the guy they're fixated on isn't good relationship material. By describing the different kinds of frogs, and how to handle each one, the author is doing a great service - and making it fun, to boot!
This would be a great gift for a girl party --the whole group would be laughing and sharing stories in a moment!

Never Kiss a Frog is actually a good dating book. It has scenarios that are funny and strikingly true. You will be reading it and the boys described are all people you have completely met. Stories are given that are painfully true, to the point that you feel as though the author has been on the exact same date you were!! Not only is it insightful about bad dates, but Never Kiss a Frog gives tips and advice on how to avoid being in the same situation again. As someone who frequently seems to be in the same position over and over again (I tend to go for the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Frog, always a WONDERFUL experience let me tell you) I needed a guide to avoiding my usual `bad decision' and this book definitely helped.
Overall, if you have ever felt that you may need a little help in the man department, read this book!!!
My entire dating life passed before my eyes (not to mention my funny bone) as I read this terrific book. There, between the pages, were all the dead-end guys (frogs) I have spent half my adult life dating... and wasting my time on. All I can say is, "Marilyn, where were you when I needed you!" I could hardly stop laughing long enough to call up my latest "boyfriend" and tell him to go take a hike, or as Marilyn might say, "Go jump back into the swamp, you slimy frog"
"Never Kiss a Frog" is chock full of laughs, brimming with great insights and overflowing with common sense suggestions that most of us (certainly me) probably overlook. For advice, there are Wart Warnings and Ribbet Snippets - smart, savvy and funny. There are also toadally clever names of frogs every girl can relate to like The-Really-Nice-Guy-But-Really-Bad-Kisser Frog, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Frog, and the Horny Toad. Oh yeah, and if I were you, I would slip one of these books into your boyfriend's briefcase or backpack and hope after reading it he may turn into that prince you've always been looking for. A definite recommend and five stars from me.
