    Out of desperation

    This book helped shed some light on why I wasn't enjoying life as much as I should. A zesty life can be created for anyone and you don't need loads of money to do it. To make a long story short,"Use some imagination and your life will blossom."

    Enjoy fully!!

    The Dating Revolution Has Begun

    The results of this book for me were staggeringly powerful. The incredible insights deeply affected both my personal and proffesional life. I would have to say it is a re-education that results in extraordinary results and should make a powerful impact on society.

    All single women - jump start the millennium by reading this NOW!

    This is a terrific book full of tangible help for women who wonder why their single lives are less desireable than they wish. Get a life - focus on developing personal power, being who you authentically are - then men not only are attracted to your engaging personality; you find you don't depend on them anymore - they become true friends and lovers, balancing YOUR healthy life. I give this book 2 thumbs up, it's the perfect answer to all those nasty advice books preaching dishonesty to women. If you read only one book on dating this millennium, make sure Bawden's book is it.

    Great Book!

    I highly recommend this book. Its balanced, healthy approach to personal growth and dating were inspirational to me. The book changed my outlook and is making being single much more fun. It feels great to break free of limiting, frustrating rules that don't work. Ms. Bawden's advise is empowering and fun to read. Buy it!

    A 'MUST HAVE' for single women !!!!

    I had the good fortune to read a preview copy of this book. FORGET 'THE RULES' ... this book is genuine, sincere AND the advice is EXCELLENT. It was so refreshing to know that happiness can be achieved through HONESTY!!! Every 'single' girlfriend I have is getting a copy for Christmas.
