    Do you feel as if you have a KICK ME SIGN on your heart? Unfortunately PRINCE HARMING SYNDROME seems to be a syndrome that plagues women of every age in every kingdom near and far. This NEW book will break bad love patterns for good!

    It may not be a book you ordinarily pick off the shelf, it’s also not your typical love advice book! In fact, PRINCE HARMING SYNDROME merges the ancient Greek philosophy of Aristotle with modern cognitive therapy plus a pinch of quantum physics—explaining how to break free from limiting beliefs and (b)lame excuses—so women can FINALLY snag the happily ever after love relationship they desire and deserve! 

    My Immediate Thoughts:

    I have briefly looked at this book and it appears to include some helpful information for women such as myself. Most people assume that I have been married for years, but truthfully I have had a proven history of dating Mr. Wrong, and Mr. Beyond Wrong for most of my life. It was fun but ultimately unsatisfying and frustrating. I have only in the past 6 years, since meeting and marrying my husband, been in able to shake that label. Because of my personal past, and the subsequent search for a reason why I chose to date less than available men gives me a reason to read this cute little book.

    Ooh, this sounds intriguing! My history with relationships is less than stellar as well!

    Laurel -
    It was fun but you can't be flitting around forever - I think ;)

    You know it seems the more we are in contact the more we appear to have in common.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Oh yeah, this looks like a good one. Especially with the Twilight 'bad-boys-turned-good' books out there. I was an intelligent woman who always (up until about 10 years ago) fell for the bad ones, making excuses for them and trying to change myself to fit them. Very frustrating!

    Thanks for posting this, Shellie! Her "Be Happy, Dammit" looks like a good read as well.

    I thought it looked interesting. Currently I am having a tough time turning down any book which is sent my way.:)

    Yet funny thing is that doing all this "girly stuff" in the last 2 days has lost Layers of Thought two male followers....lol.

    Hells bells - can't please them all. Too bad since we will get back to more mandane (not a typo) things.
