I started reading this book and was a little skeptical, however I could not stop reading. He definetly saved the Best for Last. Chapters 17-21 were the best. Definetly, a MUST READ.

There's something to be learned for every relationship status in Brunson's debut, whether you're single, coupled up, or somewhere in between. With practical dating and relationship advice, It's Complicated reveals just how uncomplicated it can be if one simply takes a hands-on approach in their quest for love with confidence, clarity, and integrity about what really matters.
