Reviews Of Dating E-Books And Programs That We Recommend

Double your Dating

by David DeAngelo

More than any other single contributor, I credit David DeAngelo with having the most influence on my decision to become a professional dating coach. Sure, I have lots of background in life coaching, but Double Your Dating was the first book I read when I got divorced nearly ten years ago, and it changed my life.

I did not want to be a “victim”, and was committed to becoming the greatest spouse my future wife Emily could ever have hoped for (long before I even knew she existed). It was this journey, of course, that ultimately led to the birth of X & Y Communications. But this book definitely got the ball rolling for me. David DeAngelo has an amazing sense of what women are truly looking for in a man, and his ideas are a true must-read for any guy who wants to improve his attractiveness to women.

Dave presents all of his ideas in a hard-hitting but entertaining manner, and always with a great deal of integrity. My personal recommendation is to read the book several times, and apply all of David D’s principles as “basics” in developing your own “natural” style. Any man who does so will learn to understand women far, far better than the vast majority of his peers.

David D. has since become a personal friend of mine, and I’m thrilled to have been selected to be part of his “Interviews With Dating Gurus” series back in 2007.

Girlfriend Activation System

by The Social Man

For several years I said that if I were a single guy in New York City, I’d live a lifestyle like Christian Hudson and Nick Sparks at The Social Man.

Nowadays, Christian is in a long-term relationship with a terrific woman who adores him, which may be the best reason of all to check out this program. He walks the talk. Above and beyond that, it’s a well-produced program with priceless secrets contained within.

Effortless Flirting

by Tripp Advice

I first met Tripp not too long ago and instantly liked the guy. One of the few recent up-and-comers to the world of men’s dating and seduction advice, Tripp’s a man of character and integrity who (like I) believes that being the best version of your authentic self is what gets a high quality woman’s attention.

Tripp has several programs out now, but the reason why we recommend this one in particular is because it demystifies flirting, an area where so many guys could do so much better. Bravo, Tripp for answering questions men are really asking!

Power Social Skills

by Carlos Xuma

Of Carlos’ many programs, this one has always been my favorite of them all. After all, if you can master even ten percent of what’s in this system, you could likely win friends and influence people at a tax collectors’ convention.

I consistently get solid feedback from the many guys I’ve pointed to this program, which only strengthens my recommendation.

Girlfriend Training Program

by Carlos Xuma

Another home run for Carlos here, this time on the subject of finding a great girlfriend and keeping her. And who in his right mind would scoff at such a notion?

I was honored to contribute to this program, as I have for several of Carlos’ others. This thing is juicier than a Hank Moody novel, only a lot more useful in the real world.

High Status Humor

by Social Fluency

Marilyn Monroe once famously said, “If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything”. This program will help you break women up instead of them breaking up with you. (See what I did there?)

But seriously, this has been the gold standard of programs for making women laugh for years now. Join thousands of other guys who’ve long since figured out that most women are at their most beautiful when they smile.

Find Your Focus

by Zach Browman

You want to be a man with a plan, because you know that’s what turns women on. So why does procrastination always seem to rear its ugly head and ruin everything?

The crazy part is that the root cause behind most procrastination is not what most of us think it is. Don’t put off getting this program…you’ll be back in the saddle and more productive than ever in no time.

Magnetic Messaging

by Bobby Rio

Bobby can also show you how to communicate with women through text messaging. His Key/Lock Sequence works like, well…a lock and key.

Go ahead…end the frustration of sending texts into one black hole after another. Instead, have the right words at the right time to make her message you back immediately.

How To Get A Girlfriend

by Stephen Nash

Tag a ‘freaking’ on this guy: Stephen Freaking Nash.

At one time he was one of five ‘official’ residents of the now-legendary Project Hollywood. He lived the seducer’s lifestyle more audaciously than just about anyone out there–with the possible exception of some of his roommates.

Then he decided that lifestyle was E-M-P-T-Y. As in ‘devoid of any meaning whatsoever’.

Next, he decided to redirect his passion toward becoming a man of great character who in turn could attract the truly great women out there.

Starting to sound familiar?

Yeppers. No wonder people like AJ & Jordan from Pickup Podcast, Frank Kermit, Nick Shane and Christian Hudson all kept harping on me to meet this guy. Having done so, I made sure to get him on the VIRTUOSITY series immediately. The result? Only what could be the most powerful audio in the entire member’s area.

Four words: Get This Guy’s Book. No disappointments.

By the way, in case you are wondering…YES…he has met the greatest woman he has ever known. And what do you know? She adores him in return.

Better In Bed

by Adam Armstrong

I met Adam Armstrong a few years ago and soon realized that he was one of the best sexperts on Earth. The purpose of his program is to make you the strongest, most potent and exciting partner your woman has ever experienced.

Since I first mentioned Adam in a newsletter, men all over the world have taken my advice and listened to what he has to say…and all of them are better (and more satisfied) men for it.

Insider Internet Dating

by Dave M.

Insider Internet Dating from Dave M. is widely considered to be the most comprehensive resource available for guys who want to succeed in the online dating world. Dave and I have come to some common conclusions independent of one another, so I know his strategies are spot-on. What’s more, Dave has built 100% of his focus around online dating, so the depth with which he covers all bases is astounding. Best of all, he combines “Inner Game” and “Outer Game” with seamless panache.

Dave has dated nearly 400 women in four years which is quite a track record for a self-proclaimed “normal guy”. As you know, we famously appreciate people who walk their talk around here, and this guy does just that.

The Adonis Effect 2.0

by Brad Howard

Every once in a while something comes along that breaks the mold. I mean, we’re talking really different. What’s really cool is when such innovative ideas actually answer questions people are actually asking.

Enter my friend Brad Howard, fat loss coach and dating coach extraordinaire. He’s produced a killer program that shows you how to build the exact kind of physique that women crave…and it’s easier than you think. Great stuff.

Get your hands on this one before he raises the price. Act now, and you’ll even get your grubby mitts on a bonus item that I’ve contributed to the cause…

Love Mechanics

by Renee Piane

There really isn’t much better a way to make my day than to introduce Emily and I to a “lady guru” who truly GETS IT. We’re talking about the kind of woman who can advise both men and women with alacrity–always with a sharpness and respect for both genders that shines through in everything she does.

Renee Piane has recently joined that short list of such women. She has been passionately going about her craft for over fifteen years now, and is one of the most knowledgeable, professional and downright friendly women in the business.

Her book Love Mechanics reflects everything that she’s about, for certain. We all need tune-ups for our cars…what about our love lives? For the single man whose action is stalled, sluggish, misfiring, or overheating, Renée Piane represents welcome roadside assistance…a jump-start back on the road to love and companionship.

Renee definitely knows her stuff. We’ll be collaborating with her on several projects in the coming weeks and months…stay tuned.

The Grapho-Deck

by Bart Baggett

I’ve just recently made friends with the gang over at Handwriting University. I had seen Bart’s name thrown around in the context of the litany of other “dating gurus”, so finally I checked out his podcast to see what handwriting analysis had to do with attracting women.

It took about a minute and a half of video for me to realize that handwriting analysis has everything to do with attracting women. And finding out which are naughty and nice. AND which ones are poisonous vs. healthy.

Seriously, the knowledge purveyed by Bart and his team basically gives you x-ray vision. Amazing, amazing stuff.

The “Grapho-Deck” is a real, tangible deck of cards. But instead of playing Texas Hold’em, you are going to be drilling yourself on how to find out unreal stuff about people simply by having them write a sentence or two for you.

Yeah, it’s a cool party trick to add to your quiver of “outer game” arrows. But the more critical facet of all this is the insight into personality that you get from this kind of training.

The “Grapho-Deck” is inexpensive, it’s fun and it helps build an amazing skill. What more can we ask?

Conversation Chemistry

by Mia Summers and Amy Waterman

The long-awaited book from Meet Your Sweet is Conversation Chemistry.

Amy Waterman and Mia Summers have put a lot of effort into creating an awesome product here (298 pages, plus audio and ebook bonuses). And the central theme–great conversation and overall communication skills–is one that I’ve never seen covered in such detail within the context of an affordable e-book.

Now you too can learn exactly how to talk to the opposite sex in any situation…without ever feeling uncomfortable or running out of things to say. And yes, you’re reading this correctly: Conversation Chemistry is for both men and women.

As you’ve come to expect from us, we absolutely contributed some killer bonuses to the dogpile of goodies you get when you make Conversation Chemistry your own. And…look for both Mia and Amy as special guests on Emily’s Click With Him program for women.

Supreme Self-Confidence

by Slade Shaw

As you already know, we are good friends with the 000Relationships folks and work with them quite a bit. Now, they’ve outdone themselves with a unique and powerful new program for women called Supreme Self-Confidence.

I hear the concept of self-confidence talked about quite a bit, but rarely is there a program that covers it exclusively–especially at a price like this.

And I have to tell you, I freely offer my stamp of 100% approval on this one, and can do so with “supreme confidence”. How’s that? Simple. You know that “secret dating expert” they say did the Inner Game segment? Well, let’s just say I know him personally. Get out your magnifying glass on the graphic above and you’ll see what I mean.

Seriously, it was my honor to contribute to this great program for Slade and the rest of the Meet Your Sweet team over there. Imagine, an audio program for WOMEN with “Inner Game” in the title…it’s about time. I’m sure you’ll love the rest of this package they’ve put together also and that it will make a huge impact on your life.

By the way, there is indeed a men’s version…and I contributed to that too. Find out more about that here.

Save My Marriage Today

with Andrew Rusbatch

Emily and I were excited to be called upon as guests for 000Relationships’ new series Save My Marriage Today.

If you are experiencing difficulties in your marriage and just don’t know where to turn, this series is worth a very close look. Rather than shelling out for high-dollar marriage counselors–and only then getting one hour a week of help at a time–why not arm yourself with as much information as you possibly can in as short an amount of time as possible? What’s more, you’ll save A LOT of money in the process.

000Relationships’ reputation is hard earned and well-deserved. Emily and I are proud to have contributed to this comprehensive program, and are absolutely sure you’ll reap amazing benefits from it…you AND your spouse, that is.

500 Lovemaking Tips

by Michael Webb

Widely considered the world’s foremost authority on romance, Michael Webb consistently delivers a prolific stream of highly-practical content to his readers. This book is a shining example.

In a world of ‘sex advice’ that is superficial at best and downright prurient at its worst, Michael’s work is a refreshing example of how to go about having the best sex of your life in all the right ways and for all the right reasons.

If you are a man or woman of high-character, yet reserve the right to remain a sexual being, this is without question the book for you. Prepare for one of the greatest reads of your life.

Just about every one of Michael’s many works reflects the same attention to quality AND value…which are by no means always one and the same.

Kissing 101

by Michelle Penney

Like so many “dating gurus” it seems, Michelle Penney was inspired to write her first book Kissing 101 in large part due to the encouragement of friends and acquaintances. And Michelle has hit a home run (or perhaps a “wicket” down under in Kiwi-land) with this book.

Kissing 101 surprises by going far beyond Kissing technique in and of itself. Everything you could possibly want to learn about kissing is in there, including all sorts of great strategy designed to make more kissing actually happen for you.

We interviewed Michelle for “X & Y On The Fly” and found her to be down to Earth and lot’s of fun to visit with. As it turns out, it was her first outside interview ever which we were proud to bring our listeners.

Kissing matters. In fact, it really, really matters. If you can melt someone with your kiss, chances are your going to go places. I have never seen any book devoted to this subject at all, let alone one as comprehensive as this. It’s a great read at a great price. Thumbs up.

Calling Men

by Mimi Tanner

Okay, let’s spell it out: Mimi has written a book here that is long, long overdue. What woman hasn’t puzzled over how to unravel the mystery of what is appropriate when contacting men. Should you wait for him ALL the time, or can’t a gal take some initiative?

Mimi’s got all of that under control, and conveys all of her many secrets in an easy-reading common-sense style. Emily and I both agree: This one should be on the shelf of every woman who desires a wildly successful dating life.

We have met Mimi just recently, and she is a true sweetheart. I’m proud to announce that a special preview addition of this book is available for FREE to you as a Keys To Bliss member. Check it out that way with absolutely no risk. My guess is you won’t be able to resist reading the full book.

Being Happy Together

by Laurie Weiss

Having sold thousands and thousands of copies of her previous books, Being Happy Together is the most recent work by Laurie Weiss. It serves as a handbook for couples everywhere who choose to be happy together.

Laurie and her husband of 47 years Jon know a bit about that whole concept, having been to the depths and back in their own marriage journey. Fortunately for all of us, they not only made it through the tough times they learned a whole lot along the way, and now share everything in this fantastically relevant yet kind-hearted masterpiece.

Meeting Jon and Laurie has been a joy for Emily and I, and it was our pleasure to host them–both recognized psychotherapists worldwide–as guests on “X & Y On The Fly”. They are a genuine couple–The Real Deal. This book is well worth a look.
