Creative Mosaic of Dating and Relationship Wisdom, April
"Even in today's sophisticated world, some things change
slowly, if ever at all. This is especially true when it comes to
the traditional game of love that is still played between the
majority of women and men." ~pg. 29
Steve Nakamoto has written a highly enjoyable book for women who
are seeking true love with a man who is committed to his
partner's greater good.
Men Are Like Fish is so enlightening in regards to
relationships; it might be the only book you initially need to
realign your focus as you journey into the ocean of romantic
depths. Not only will you realize what you have been longing for
in a relationship, you will now be able to apply universal
wisdom to enhance your relationship.
Why don't men call back and how are men spooked?
How do you let go of past disappointments and embrace future
hopes and dreams?
What are the main ingredients you dream of in a romantic
How do you create a situation of deep emotional attachment?
What are the main qualities men are looking for in women?
How do allusive men act and how do you get their attention?
How powerfully do you attract men? Take the "bait
self-quiz"...very amusing and
there is also a "Big Fish Test."
Where do you find the Big Fish? A list of Favorite Fishing Spots
is an amazing resource
and goes way beyond meeting men in typical bars, etc.
Why are conversational skills the bond of companionship?
Do you appreciate the man you are interested in - what is the
of the attraction?
"Men can be very charming with their manly strengths and
boyish personalities. But underneath a man's charm lies a
foundation of character. If consistent, lasting, and fulfilling
love is your objective, character is one of your only reliable
indicators." ~pg. 105
As a woman I found Steven Nakamoto's writing highly entertaining
and the quotes throughout the book were well chosen and very
appropriate for his topic. Are you ready to move from passive
observer to enlightened relationship goddess? This book draws on
timeless wisdom, well-researched personal development advice and
an advanced level of empowering insight. The author is
especially well read and seems to have a deep interest in women
finding a life that is emotionally fulfilling and creatively
Men are Like Fish is not only for women who want to find a new
romantic relationship, it is also for women who want to maintain
a high level of emotional satisfaction in their current

Gentlemen, Start Her Engine

"When a woman
recognizes you have a devoted interest in her, she can feel
secure about your love for her - a definite precursor for
trust." ~Steven Andrew Guerrero
You might ask, "Why is it so important for men to learn
how to satisfy a woman's appetite for romance?" Because
when a woman is deprived of romance and attention, similar to
food depravation, her eyes become bigger than her stomach.
Therefore, anything with a hint of romance begins to look
palatable to her. ~Steven A. Guerrero
Let's face it, some men know how to get a ladies engine
running and as women we know exactly how we want to be
"maintained, serviced and upgraded." It just doesn't
feel the same when we have to explain what we want.
Finally, Steven Andrew Guerrero (the new guru of romance) has
written a book for guys that just makes sense. Even my husband
wanted to read this book! It definitely appeals to the male mind
and I could sum up my feelings about this book in about two
words by saying: Yes! Finally!
"When she is convinced you possess an undeniable
commitment to please her,
she can then trust her vulnerability
is safe in your hands." ~Steven Andrew Guerrero
Not only is Steven Andrew Guerrero romantic beyond a romantic
dream, he is darn funny too. Pages 31-33 had me rolling in bed
with laughter. Can I say that if men take his advice and start
to put his ideas into practice, planets are going to start to
collide in the best of ways. The main chapters in this book
include information about:
Choosing to Win the Relationship Race
Steering with Your Ears
Prepare to Race
Don't Crash and Burn
The Right Fuel
The Diesel Engine Woman
The Economy Engine Woman
The High-Performance Woman
If you want to keep your woman's heart in top shape and avoid
the main reasons women file for divorce, Steven has the answers.
Any woman who reads this book is going to say: "Wow, Wow!
Where are the men who do this?" So, if you are a guy, you
might want to hide this book in a place she will never look.
Especially since this book has places for you to write down your
own ideas or her favorite things. The element of surprise is
most necessary when planning for romance. The
"Workbook" section includes:
Locating Her Engine Style
The Romantic History List
The Old You List
Her Favorite List
Not Her Favorite List
Her Pet Peeves and Hurtful Habit List
Her Wish List
As a guy friend of mine just said: "Chivalry is not
dead. Open your eyes." This book was most enlightening and
it is filled with guy-friendly ideas that will "drive"
any woman absolutely wild with desire. Zoom...zoom
You should have seen the smile on my face when my husband
figured out which engine I am. He has tried a few things in this
book and the author is right. If you want a guy to be romantic,
you have to show you appreciate it.

FOR MEN ONLY
Keeping Your Woman Happy...this book has great advice,

"It's a huge shocker to talk to hundreds of women and find
that while financial security is nice, it isn't nearly as
important to them as feeling emotionally secure - feeling close
and confident that you will be there for her no matter
what." ~ pg. 17
If you are reading this book and your wife is reading "for
women only," you may be in for a lovely time if you talk
about the issues. By reading the "for women" and
"for men" books, my husband and I finally sorted out
the basis of our differences.
These books can at first cause more problems than they solve
because as problems surface and you put names to the issues,
things can get worse. A few days later, you may find your
relationship on a better path and renewal setting in. The ideas
almost require you to put pride aside and set to work on the
real issues facing every relationship.
The chapters include:
Rethinking Random - Great information on how women want
to feel emotionally secure. I could not agree more. If you don't
feel loved, it is difficult to be motivated to respond. Respond
and Respect seems to go hand in hand when loved.
The Deal is Never Closed - "Buried inside most
women- even those in great relationships-is a latent insecurity
about whether their man really loves them."
Windows...Open! - How women multitask and why they may
not be able to let go of a grudge. Shows how to work through
Your Real Job Is Closer to Home - Why women said they
wouldn't mind their husband making less money if he could spend
more time at home.
Listening Is the Solution - Why women sometimes just need
to talk it out...excellent
advice. Some of the best I've read yet.
With Sex, Her "No" Doesn't mean You - Romance
and what you say might be the key here.
The Girl in the Mirror - Are you really the mirror reflecting
back what she wants to hear? As a husband, Jeff Feldhahn has
some great wisdom to share.
You could save your marriage or relationship by following the
ideas in "for men only." From personal experience, it
might be a little dangerous to read each other's books. Only do
so if very brave and ready for conflict resolution.

FOR WOMEN ONLY
The book your husband wishes you would read and believe...,
June 23, 2006
Shaunti Feldhahn's book may help women understand the way men
process information and see the world, and I think this book
will be most useful to women who are in love with good men who
are interested in a nurturing relationship. By following the
advice in this book, a husband may become more loving because he
feels he is being respected for what he provides.
By understanding a man's basic needs a woman may be able to
encourage a taming of the dragons and a more peaceful existence.
It really comes down to keeping a man happy so you can be happy.
Does a man want respect more than sex?
Do men enjoy romance as much as women?
What is the key to a man's emotions?
Shaunti Feldhahn brings out good points about anger being a clue
to when women have stepped over the disrespect boundary. At
times she makes men seem very volatile and at other times shows
they have an incredible amount of patience and endurance.
This book does not address a woman's need for romance or how men
can get the response from women that they desire, it mainly
focuses on what a woman needs to know. After the initial
reactions (an increase in arguments if you discuss the two
books) subside, you may find you are experiencing more
romance than before.
While reading, it can be a little frustrating to only be viewing
the issue from one side, but there is a second book: For Men
Only. My husband read the second book and actually came looking
for this one.
If you are a feminine energy woman married to a masculine energy
man, this book will explain a lot and may encourage the reading
of additional selections.
