Life coach Miedaner (Coach Yourself to Success) has written a self-help manual counseling readers on how to attract love into their lives or rediscover "the love that somehow got lost in your current relationship." Her basic concept: people are motivated by a few basic needs, needs that can bloom into dreaded neediness-toxic for love. "Fulfill your unmet emotional needs and live your top core values," Miedaner says, and love will seek you out. The book includes her weighty (and often challenging) patented "Emotional Quiz Index" to identify core needs ("Control/Power," "Order," "Peace/Balance," Security/Safety," etc.) and advice on how to achieve them and establish boundaries. On occasion, Miedaner's advice can be simplistic; to meet the need for independence, she advises readers to "pay off all your credit cards... so you are financially free." Clearly, this is good advice, but if it were so easy, there wouldn't be such a booming market for financial self-help titles. Her simple message of empowerment, however-the reminder to readers to ensure that their needs are met-might alone be worth the cover price.
