I won this book through Goodreads First Reads and couldn't wait to dive into it. Fresh and informative, it provided some great insight to what I want and how to not make the same mistakes. I think this book will interest both women and men.

Everyone should read this book before they try the dating scene. Mistakes can be costly. This book explains how to choose a partner who is compatible and helps you to understand why past relationships did not work.
