Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Read it, people. J.M. Kearns's new book called Better Love Next Time... The book's main premise is that people often repeat the same mistakes in successive relationships, but if you can diagnose what really went wrong with your exes, you can have better relationships in the future." (Erin Meanley, Glamour.com)

"If you're searching for love, then you should start with this refreshingly intelligent and insightful dating guide." (Shari Low, Daily Record)

"Self-help books often make me skittish - but not this one. Kearns's advice is sound and good: he tells us to look inward, to be honest with ourselves, to stay the course. A chapter called How Good Matches Go Bad is, alone, worth the book's price…He says our demons will invariably rise up and try to disrupt …It's important to learn to step back when you sense trouble 'and ask yourself, who is talking here?' Are there old grudges in play? Old hurts stinging? False lessons echoing that have nothing to do with the two of you?" (Susan Schwartz, Montreal Gazette)

Meet the Author

J.M. Kearns, PhD, is a writer of fiction and non-fiction who has at various times been a philosopher of perception, a crisis counselor and a music journalist. He brings to his writing the unusual combination of a philosopher's analytical mind and a novelist's insight into emotions. His best-selling book Why Mr. Right Can't Find You has been published in Canada and the U.S., the UK, Australia, China, and France. Embraced by readers and the press, it has been featured on Oprah&Friends and in OK! Magazine, Glamour, Cosmopolitan-UK, Maclean's, The Toronto Star, and many others. Since then, two more Kearns books have been published to critical praise, his novel Ex-Cottagers in Love and the relationship book Better Love Next Time Kearns grew up near Toronto, Canada and now lives in Cape May, New Jersey with his partner Debra.
