He's Got Potential: A Field Guide to Shy Guys, Bad Boys, Intellectuals, Cheaters, and Everything in Between by Belisa Vranich, Ariane Marder

Okay, so he's not perfect, but does your man have potential? This book has the answers to the question: does your man have Prince Charming potential? Learn how to bring out the best of what he's got?or not!

Women want men to change, but men want women to stay the same. If you've ever wondered how much "potential" a guy has, this book will help you discover whether he's a diamond in the rough or just a lump of coal. You'll learn why women endure the frustration of trying to transform a sub-par boyfriend into the man of their dreams and why men can be disappointed when women change as they turn into wives and mothers. With the information and tactics in this book, you'll find out how to overcome that disconnect and learn to assess whether a man really does have the potential to change or whether it's time to move on in order to find that truly special someone you deserve.

  • Tells you what you need to know to determine whether a man is worth all of the time and effort
  • Shows how to tell if a man is a Cheapskate, Know-It-All, Liar, Couch Potato, ADD Guy, Wannabe Artist, or all of the above
  • Explains the biological and social reasons that women assess men for the potential they might have in the future while men assess women as they are now
  • Written by Dr. Belisa Vranich, a clinical psychologist and advice columnist for the the Huffington Post, and Ariane Marder, former sex and relationships editor at Men's Fitness and, currently, the executive editor at Voyage.tv

Filled with surprising, down-to-earth information your mother and your friends could never tell you, He's Got Potential is the relationship survival guide every woman should read.
