Review:

"This book puts women in the driver's seat on the bumpy road to the right man."--Wendy L. Walsh, PhD, author of The 30-Day Love Detox

"Finally, a book for intelligent women who are serious about finding a healthy relationship, not just a warm body. Too many beautiful and successful women get stuck in bad relationships, but with honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness, that can change. In so many of the stories in the book, I felt like I was reading about my own life. You will, too."--Alex Redcay, LSW, psychotherapist, Highland Park, New Jersey

"Unlike many self-help books, this one doesn't present formulas for 'catching' a guy. Instead, it helps you tune into your own feelings, plans, and desires. It is full of important advice about the steps to take in building a healthy relationship."--Lisa Aronson Fontes, PhD, author of Invisible Chains

"A thoughtful, engaging, and evidence-based book that combines insightful analysis with practical suggestions and tools. Rich in examples, this is an easy and enjoyable read."--Andrew Christensen, PhD, coauthor of Reconcilable Differences

"I really identified with the women in this book and how they approached different dilemmas. Reading it helped me put specific events in my life into perspective and reevaluate my reactions. If you want to understand yourself and your relationships better, I highly recommend this book!"--Nadia B., Florida

"As a 20-something who’s been single forever, this book couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I feel like I can reenter the dating scene with more understanding of what I'm looking for. If my girlfriends read this book instead of the glossy magazine gurus, we would have stronger, more confident women who took better care of themselves in relationships. A lightbulb went off when I stopped and analyzed my Key Needs List--this is a tool every woman should use!"--Nicole S., California
