From Publishers Weekly
In this enthusiastic how-to, a happily married professional writer (Five Men Who Broke My Heart) and amateur matchmaker tells singles to use their friends, family and colleagues as signposts on the road to wedded bliss. She asserts that by making steps toward self-improvement (if necessary), swallowing their pride and asking those in their circle to set them up, readers will find prospects far more promising than anything they might find online or at the bar. Though many of Shapiro's suggestions are unique and intriguing, some still come off as a little desperate, despite her efforts to counter prejudices against this method of finding a mate. (Jan. 2)
