Publisher's Summary

This is the audiobook that single women have been waiting for! Created by the hottest dating coach on the scene, Matthew Hussey, it offers clear, honest, and practical advice for women on how to find their ideal man - and, importantly, how to keep him. Using simple steps, Matthew guides us through the complex maze of dating and shows us just how to find the guy, get the guy, and keep the guy.

Through his work as a peak performance coach, Matthew has gained unparalleled access into what makes guys tick when it comes to women. He is now using this "insider information" to advise women who have been unsuccessful in their quest for a lasting relationship with the right man. His Get the Guy coaching events are hugely successful and the glowing testimonials he receives from those he has helped to find love just go to show that his advice really does work.

In Get the Guy, Matthew shares his dating secrets and provides women with the toolkit they need to approach men, and to create and maintain relationships. Along the way, he explodes some commonly held myths about what it is that guys really want, shares strategies on how women can take control of their dating destinies, and empowers them to go out there and find an exhilarating, adventurous love life.

Wow!

This book is life changing Matthew helps you to understand how guys think whilst highlighting how our own behaviour can leave us jumping at shadows that dont exist. A real insight into how to find the guy and build and maintain an amazing fulfilling relationship. Early days for me but the chapters are the building blocks to help me create the person I want to be with no compromise of my ultimate goal.....to get the guy and the relationship that I desire and deserve. Brilliant!

Sceptic

So, I should start by saying I was a little ashamed buying this, thinking that it would teach me how to fit around a man. It did the opposite, I learnt how to respect, value, and find integrity in myself that would not only potentially find me a romantic relationship, but also serve all aspects of my life. If you are a sceptic like me, just take the plunge and get the book, it's worth it for everyone no matter where your romantic life is at right now.

Best book ever

I'm really sad to have finished this book. When I accidentally stumbled across Matthew Hussy's pod cast one morning in the car on my way to work, I didn't expect to listen to it for more than 30 seconds. It was actually so insightful, I listened to ever single pod cast over the next few weeks. Then I got the book. I have really enjoyed it and have recommended it to so many of my friends, single and in relationships. The advice is really sensible and easy to implement into daily life.

Hard sell overkill

Matthew loses his approachable manner which first made me notice him on YouTube videos and FB. The fake enthusiasm and excitement tone in his voice make him sound insincere and inauthentic. He is pushing sales and sign up links so frequently that it is difficult to piece together his information. This book feels like a hard sell pitch almost immediately and doesn’t expand upon the teaser content which can be found online in the above sources. Very disappointed.

Skipped a lot, learned a bit - patronising and disempowering

Some solid nuggets of advice. Some of which was empowering. However, there was quite a bit of sexism which honestly resulted in me feeling less confident in myself as a woman I general. Also there was hint of him trying to explain women’s issues and their positions in society when he clearly had no idea what he was taking about. Also when he mentioned that he might be being sexist he rebuffed it in a patronising way and with tone of annoyance. Skipped a lot but learned a bit. Oh yeah he also kept on withholding information and purposing referring you his other products online, so not great buying a book and then not getting all the info.

Epiphany

Don't fall into the trap that it is a book JUST for dating. It is first and foremost, a book for personal development, a journey to better yourself and attract people based on how awesome you're becoming. I loved it deeply and I'm recommending it to all my girl friends. Moreover, it is such a pleasure to listen to Matthew, i find myself laughing on the street every new chapter. His energy is amazing and I'm so grateful to have taken part in it.

Great book!

I must admit that this book didn't have some totally new information for me, as I read a lot of literature of the kind, but Matt really helped me open my eyes on some of my issues and find a way to solve them. I have specific ideas and mindsets that are an impediment and that have deep roots in my personality, but with Matt's guidance I feel like I am ready to start changing them. Good luck to me and all the fellow readers!

Yho, this is way too much work! No!

"Get down on your knee and ask his hand in marriage" ...this is the one thing he didn't say in the book but he might as well have. Approach every guy you come across(guy on the bus, guy in the queue, mail man, neighbors, EVERY GUY), be spontaneous, be funny, be playful, don't be boring, don't be too serious, don't be too nice either 🙄 The guy must do nothing, you must do Everything to keep him intreagued and interested! So many do's and donts! At some point, he literally said "Don't be yourself"...change who you are and become this magical unicorn all guys will go crazy over. A whole 7 hours of my life telling me to basically go out and hunt men. No thank you sir, it's a pass!...I think high value woman focus on themselves, living their best life. the right guy will notice you and HE will put in the work to impress and keep you! A relationship should be fun and enjoyable...not THIS MUCH WORK.😭...ok Chapters 16-18 were valuable, I'll give it that.

To new adventures🥂

This book couldn’t have come at a best time of my life. My divorce came through a few days ago after a 19yr marriage. Instead of being sad and sobby, I feel liberated to face the world of fun and love again. The part about the 80year old woman who fell in love again, is what validated my excitement. The journey will not be easy but I am looking forward to fun moments and meeting people again. Thank you for coming to my life just when I needed you. Maybe you will see me in one of your seminars. Regards, M

Matthew Hustler

This is the worst dating book I’ve ever read and I basically paid for a marketing tool for him to promote his seminars. I didn’t learn anything I don’t think his advice is good at all.

Nice book to understand men behaviour

I enjoyed reading this book from a male perspective.
It doesn't canvas everything as we are all individuals, nevertheless it clarifies how some types of men react to certain scenarios.

Read this after my marriage was over

This book was ok, but looking back I only got it as I was desperate to have a better understanding of why my marriage ended and things I could do to get him back. In reality I didn't need this book I just needed time to heal.

Fires up you confidence

I love this audiobook. I bought the non audio version after attending a evening get the guy seminar which gave practical, useful and confidence building advice that you can start incorporating to increase your chances of meeting the right guy.

I haven't got around to reading the book yet just due to life, I'm great at putting my love situation on the back burner and distracting myself with work and other things. So I bought the audio version with my credits so I had no excuse not to finish.

Matthew Hussey really is an expert on this stuff. Alot of the relationship advice, finding a soulmate stuff I've read, while helpful to some degree focuses alot of visualisations, meditations and passive practices that are designed to attract the right one with intent. They all have useful ideas but for me this book stands out as just being really practical. Hussey gives some intriguing insights into the male mind. He also really helps to really fire up your confidence to start taking steps to move forward rather than take the path of leaving your love life to fate.

There are pauses in the reading in which you can check out online videos where tips and concepts are demonstrated.

What I love most about this book is that as well as the practicality of it all and the onus on you having the power to change things, Matthews enthusiasm fired you up whilst listening. He comes across as someone who is genuinely passionate about helping you to start taking steps to meet the right one. I'm starting to accept the fact that leaving something as important as love to fate and outside circumstance is just too risky. All singletons out there could benefit by starting to be proactive even if just really small everyday ways if they want to meet and attract the quality of relationship they dream about. I'm putting the steps into place already as I feel that I would be an absolute fool not too. My confidence is increasing after getting positive results.

If you want to find some practical advice and confidence building tips on meeting the right man then this book is an important listen.

Nothing new

Matthew Hussey seems fascinated by his own work and voice. The shouty narration and rather preachy lecturing does nothing to give power to his bland and desperate ideas but rather gives the listener the impression of being cornered by a drunken know it all at a wedding reception.

Talk to every guy you meet. Every guy. Flirt and desperately ask for their phone number. If tgey aren't available, try to find out if they have any friends that would give you their phone number. Be confident but drop your standards until you'll date anything then date anything.

Great ideas and breaks away from The Rules in a refreshing way

Loved the ideas and tips of best things to say to boyfriends and husbands when in a relationship. Have tried them out in my husband of 3 years and noticing a positive change.
However, when I started listening, I felt like I was listening to a late night U.S. infomercial with 10 mins of wordy promises and nothing back. Glad I kept going!
Next up, Matthew's voice. He has a good neutral English accent, great vocabulary, with one hugely distracting flaw - he doesn't pronounce the hard sound of the letter 't' most parts of a word. I'm afraid I noticed it every minute I listened. Other than this, I'm glad I heard the author read the book.

Seriously?

I think I must have been on drugs when I bought this book. Whilst ideal for teenagers and childish minds (plenty of those out there) reality is, dating is hard and it is not that easy of a game. Matthew seems to know all the tricks and I admire how much he believes in what he does, but seriously, let’s all get a grip. Go out more, do what you love not what others love and if you meet someone naturally that you feel attracted to and that person feels for you as well, things will happen smoothly. Whatever doesn’t make you attractive to some will male you a treasure to other...as simple as that.

just watch his YT vids

I watched loads of his YT vids and did not find any more information in here. As well this book should be called "how to put a guy on a pedestal". I get what he means and that u should treat the guys right, but that made me a bit upset! It is too much.
