Author, talk-show host, columnist, radio and TV personality Karen Salmansohn has been writing advice and mentoring young women for years, encouraging an end to the cycle of less-than-healthy relationship choices that are easy to start, but oh so difficult to break.

Salmansohn’s personal overcoming of difficult relationship traps has become Prince Harming Syndrome a brand new self-help book that mixes Karen’s life experience and the philosophy of Aristotle to create an intimately witty and personal account for women of all ages looking to break their bad habits for good! Karen will teach you how to seek out the 5 essentials for true love NONE OF THEM being what you'd normally think about looking for! For example, one essential is to seek a guy who "values growing."

If your man values growing, he will be open to discussing problems, meeting your needs and evolving so as to make sure problems don’t keep repeating.

Prince Harming Syndrome is a call to action for knowing how to recognize the important difference between Prince Harmings and Prince Charmings by understanding the important difference between "pleasure" and "happiness."

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this tome, the author of How to Be Happy, Dammit finally settles the question "How do I find a good man?" According to talk-show host/columnist Salmansohn, getting off the treadmill of bad relationships requires courage, but for finding the right guy, you just need smarts. To help you achieve that solid mating match-up, she provides guidelines that focus on the underlying qualities that identify Mr. Right and disqualify nice-guy imposters.

    How to achieve happily ever after.

    When I was asked if I would like to review Prince Harming Syndrome: Break Bad Relationship Patterns for Good - 5 Essentials for Finding True Love (and they're not what you think!) by Karen Salmansohn I thought to myself, why not? I am not a self-help reader, listener, follower but I definitely have a history of starting relationships with those rough and tumble, sexy, sweet-talking, powerful guys only to find that they are just not long-term material, hence the singledom I am still in today. Maybe I would gain some insight as to why these Prince Harmings are so attractive.

    Ms. Salmansohn uses her own experiences, research and some advice from that ol' love guru Aristotle to differentiate between three kinds of relationships (some for pleasure and one for happiness), to explain the difference between charm and character, and to explain the five essential elements one should include when looking for in a Prince Harming:

    1. Does he want to be in a committed relationship?
    2. Does he value growing as a person?
    3. 4. 5. You will have to read the book to find out.

    Ms. Salmansohn encourages the reader to write down what your "happily ever after ending" would include in great detail (including the five elements she lists) and to read and visualize your response for 5 minutes, three times a day. Eventually, visualizing positive images and thoughts will lead to a more positive outlook on relationships and life in general. There are also questions that should be asked of your potential Prince before you devote your self (and/or your body) to them and the relationship. This book is not only about the men. There are chapters devoted to becoming a Princess Charming ("Be The Change You Want To Date") and breaking the habits that seem to attract those bad boys.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and not only for the visual appeal. There were a few eye-opening moments and times I said "Ah hah - makes sense!". The writing is fun, practical and straight-forward. A great choice for those looking for their own happily ever after.

    Now, you may wonder "who is Karen Salmansohn?" as I did when I first looked at this book. I had not heard of her and was pleasantly surprised to see her extensive background.

    Self-help for anyone who wouldn't be caught dead with self-help

    Are you a girl who dates the bad boy? The guy who is into sex, drugs and rock n' roll, (or rap if you prefer.) Do you always find yourself disappointed that the guys you choose don't seem to care about or respect you? Girl, you have The Prince Harming Syndrome and you need to check out this book right away.
    The Prince Harming Syndrome is a no nonsense guide to getting out of the bad boy cycle and finding your Prince Charming. Although, I have already married my prince Charming, I still thought I would read this book. First of all, do you see that cover? I am a sucker for a cool cover and this one was cool inside and out. Each chapter had purple ink to highlight the important parts and a neat leaf on a few pages, great design!
    As for the information, I found it to clear cut and to the point with a bit of humor thrown in for good measure, even though some of it was silly. I am not a huge non-fiction fan, especially self-help, but this is self help for those who wouldn't be caught dead with self help. It has the reader utilize visualization, gives list of values that you want your Prince Charming to have (hint, it is not sexiness and money) it also has a chapter on what to do when you realize your Prince Crush is a Prince Harming. My favorite parts have to be the lists (I am a huge list maker) and the re-occurring role of Aristotle, the love guru.
