Almost everyone would like to be in a relationship, but creating one that is healthy and happy can be a big challenge for many people. This book is for those singles who have been successful in life but who haven't been able to translate that success into creating the kind of relationship they would like. The ideas it puts forth aren't for everyone. The author presents an active, but practical, system that requires singles to take a hard, honest look at themselves and make preparing themselves for a healthy relationship the primary task. He then shows how they can use their newfound skills and confidence to create the relationship of their dreams.
