Publisher's Summary

If you are sleeping single in a double bed or walking down the street thinking, "How do I meet that guy?"; if you're on your 20th date and he's no more committed than when you first exchanged cell phone numbers; if everyone you know is getting married for the second time and you can't even get a first date; if you love the one you're with but the relationship needs some spark...then this book is for you.

In Love Smart: Find the One You Want - Fix the One You Got, Dr. Phil tells people who are dissatisfied with their love lives to stop making excuses (All the good ones are taken; I'm too fat/skinny/boring/unpredictable for anyone to love me; I should stick with the relationship I have, I'm not going to do any better) and start taking action! Dr. Phil knows that you deserve a committed relationship, and it is within your control to have the one you want. First though, you need to determine what you want in a partner, plot your course, and get out there and create velocity in your pursuit of a loving connection. The dating world is a vastly new place: meeting people at bars or through friends used to be the only option, but that's not true anymore. Love Smart explores new possibilities, new places to meet people, including the Internet, and new activities to get involved in where you'll find interesting people. Or if you are simply looking to rekindle the relationship you are already in, Dr. Phil will tell you how to turn up the flame.

Love Smark

Loved Love Smart. So interesting - perhaps too many useful nuggets didn't catch all of them. A lot of the information needs reviewing and perhaps a hardback copy would be more useful for that purpose. Nevertheless felt encouraged, motivated and enlightened after listening to this very witty and gentle book!

Loved it!

Where does Love Smart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Yes, this one is definitely written specifically for women. But, it's a must-read (er...listen) for any woman fed up and frustrated with the quest for a successful relationship. Nothing earth-shattering or even new, necessarily, but still great reinforcement of the fundamentals to finding that elusive

What did you like best about this story?

Dr. Phil's trademark straightforward, no-nonsense delivery.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!

You've probably heard it all before

This isn't a bad book but it really isn't anything new. It covers some really basic stuff...Not bad if you haven't read or listened to anything like this before...

Necessary Real Tools

I loved that this book was straight forward and to the point. It’s practical for helping women make real life decisions which can make or break them. You are left with wanting more but that more comes with applying the advise given here in this book. If you listen with a learning ear it’s hard to approach any situation now and not be successful.
