Great Book at a Great Price!
I received More Than A Match from WaterBrook Multnomah (http://waterbrookmultnomah.com/) to review. I love books about improving relationships! This book, in my opinion, was geared toward adults interested in pursuing a partner for life. It includes tons of great tips for what to look for in a mate and why some things are very important when determining your compatibility.
The authors share how online dating sites, are not always great determiners of a healthy, long lasting relationship, and then tell you what to look for in a relationship that will help it succeed, long term. I really liked the tone of this book and the authors' conversational writing. I would definitely recommend this to younger adults who are in a serious dating relationship, engaged, or are looking for their life long partner.

Insightful guide to dating and marriage
More Than a Match by Michael & Amy Smalley is an enjoyable and incredibly honest look at how to successfully go from dating to happily married. The authors are brutally honest about the mistakes they made in their dating and early in their marriage, offering up their errors as lessons for the reader. They focus on the compatibility studies from various dating sites that promise a perfect match, but marriage is more than being compatible. It's about communication and respect, and the authors, both counselors, have plenty of advice. They encourage readers to make a check list of what's most important to them and then honestly evaluate relationships in the light of the list. Their insight on sex (especially the wedding night) is right on the money and almost shockingly open. While the book is aimed at those in the dating pool, it also has great advice for communication for everyone, even couples with several anniversaries under their belt. This book may be a bit too mature and graphic for teen audiences, but for college age and up, it's a terrific guide to getting relationships right.Was this review helpful?
