I have come to realise over the years that my brain doesn't deal with "self help" or "guide" books very well. It pretty much shuts off and starts to pine for something less prescriptive. So I wasn't totally sure this book would appeal to me. But by the end of the first few pages, I was hooked. It's probably because the book is written as a mix of "how-to" advice as well as narratives from the author's own comical dating experiences. It also made me think about my productivity (or lack of) in a lot of other areas of my life and, by the end of the book, I found myself thinking of how I could make positive changes in my life as a whole. Recommended for an easy yet inspiring read for people like me who tend to feel stuck in life and in love.
