This is an extremely important book for today's generation of women who are single, divorced or widowed, looking at the dating scene and asking themselves "What am I supposed to do now?" Poter's re-definition of the word "Cougar" as no longer being the predatory jungle animal some define the Cougar but as strong, unique and powerful creatures who can make their own choices about their lives that reflect who they are today. The author's personal history is very compelling and adds to the easy readability of this terrific book. Her insights are spot on and her advice is comprehensive and detailed even as she states what should be obvious but isn't always: "No married men" or "No texting while on a date." The book is also filled with real-life examples and clever sayings that bring it all home and put everything about the incredibly complex and confusing dating scene into something we can understand and relate to. In particular, check out the sections on "Lessons Learned" and "Red Flags." Learn the importance of changing yourself first before jumping into a new relationship.

This book is a phenomenal guide for anyone re-entering the dating world after divorce or widowing. The book motivates readers on two levels: 1) From a practical standpoint, this book offers insight into the challenges often faced by those beginning to date again after having been through a marriage. I had no idea how scary it would be to meet women after my divorce, and this book made me feel less alone. KarenLee's writing made me laugh and provided me with wise tips that eased my transition into singleness. 2) KarenLee's openness about encountering tragedy and growing from the experience is a sight in itself. Her vulnerability is a reminder that there is no reason to fear hiding from yourself. Reading this book is like spending time with a great friend who makes you excited to live your life. This book reframed the way I viewed my divorce and made me excited to get back out there again! Two thumbs way up!
Great read! Really inspiring. Recommended it to several of my friends.
