Recommends it for: Anyone who dates, however, it is geared toward women.
I thought this book was actually pretty interesting. Particularly since "profiling my date" is something I had already begun to do after my recent divorce to a man I was with simply because (I thought) he was a "good" guy. Very much the wrong guy for me, though.

Once you know what you want and need out of a S.O. "profiling" is something you need to do to stay on course. Of course I didn't call it profiling. I called it "not being a dumbass again".


This book didn't offer any Major insights to me

Sometime's even smart women need a little guidance! I really liked the approach that Caroline took with this book, not following the trend of other dating books by trying to be quirky with catchy lingo or too hip. She came across like one smart woman to another...even a little therapist thrown in but not in an obvious way. I felt like I was listening to a friend tell me like it is, someone who actually cared about my well-being so I was willing to sit and listen. She hits on all the basic topics ...more

Good information as far as it goes, but Presno joins the hordes of authors and speakers who say, "Pay attention to your surroundings," and leave with that. Presno would have improved the book by addressing what to do with the information gained from paying attention. Easy to read and informative sections on common personality traits, such as narcissism, including how these traits are manifested. Good for a basic, easily read overview, but not much different from other books of this nature.

Some of the stuff - most - in this book is very basic dating 101 stuff. I would have benefited from it ten years ago, before I had dated all the loser types it profiles. However, there are some interesting insights into different psychological disorders and how they might affect a relationship, so it was fun putting all the guys I dated in the past into the little boxes provided by the author.

This book is teaches how to quickly and efficiently spot the warning signs of a potentially bad partner. I appreciate the idea that the sooner you assess a person's character (and consequently terminate the relationship), the better. The book also helps you narrow down the qualities you are looking for and which one's hold highest and lowest priority. Good read for the single peeps.

Nothing new here if you already know how to relate to people. This book is best for those who don't know how to recognize an obvious psychopath...

Like all my writing, the new children’s picture/self-help book, 1, 2, 3, 4: Nightmare No More, is a reflection of what’s going on in my life at the time. When I was single and in my 30’s, I wrote, Profiling Your Date: A Smart Woman’s Guide to Evaluating a Man (St. Martin’s Griffin).

Now a wife and mom, I’m interested in all things parenting. Through freelance writing and blogging, I’ve covered top
