Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
According to dating coach Kelly, "[W]e're actually living in the best possible time for dating," with new options that allow women to be the "hunters" rather than the "gatherers." Unlike Kingma's emotional/spiritual approach, Kelly's is unabashedly marketing oriented: it's about maximizing options and selling yourself. There's even packaging advice, in the form of makeup tips (minimal eyeliner, but lip gloss to appear kissable). (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Kelly, a dating coach and author, encourages women to think about man hunting the same way they do job hunting and work smarter, not harder. To that end, her book urges readers to get out of their comfort zone, meet men, intelligently size them up, and know when to hold on or let go. Guidance for the "new era" of dating-which includes Internet dating and speed dating-is delivered in a lively, entertaining style. Interesting sidebars cover such topics as "What Men Watch in Women on First Dates" and "Mr. Wrong Case Studies." Illuminating and bound to circulate, this book is highly recommended. In her clever dating guide, columnist and author Straker (Sexy Jobs in the City: How To Find Your Dream Job Using the Rules of Dating) sketches 21 career types, including the man's look, basic personality, risks, perks, and what to expect when dating him. For instance, the biggest challenge of the Wall Street trader is getting him to commit, but he knows how to wine and dine. While the psychiatrist is a good listener, it's hard to get him to admit when he's wrong. Straker includes key words and phrases for each occupation that will help readers speak the same language. Fun yet insightful and hard to put down, this book is destined to be a hit. Highly recommended for all libraries. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
