    I have to confess I was very surprised by the content and quality of this book. For a $6.99 book it was exceptional. It is however geared to a rather specific group though - single women waiting for husbands...which I have to say is a perfect match for me! You should see my copy of this book...it is marked up like crazy. It is definitely a book that I will keep as a reference for quite some time.

For a $6.99 book it was exceptional. It is however geared to a rather specific group though - single women waiting for husbands...which I have to say is a perfect match for me! You should see my copy of this book...it is marked up like crazy. It is definitely a book that I will keep as a reference for quite some time. In this book Michelle and Joel's goal is to help single women be smart about finding a mate. They came up with 14 rules to abide by in relationships with men to insure you marry the right man for you. The book starts off by advising you not to put your life on hold and start to look toward God and toward yourself to find value and discover if your heart and mind are in the right place. They then go into what to look for in a mate. They stress being picky and not settling for the first man that shows an interest in you. I have to admit this was an area I was worried about. I had gotten myself to the point that I was desperate to find a husband that I was afraid I might settle for the wrong man just so I could be married. I have to say I have a whole new (and much better) perspective on finding a mate. They finish with going through steps on how to evaluate serious suitors and how to compliment your man. This was a great and quick read and I would recommend it to any single women who is at the point of considering marriage. It would also be a great book for a single ladies small group as there are questions at the end of each chapter that would make it an easy to discuss book and at $6.99 you can't beat the price! This book was provided for review by Waterbrook Multnomah.

    It's a dating book. While most might feel embarrassed showcasing to the world that they read this book, not in my case. It was surprisingly a good read. Again, this book is in a Christian perspective -- not for everybody. That title "What women don't know" got me apart from it was recommended by one of my churchmates. To my churchmates, I highly recommend it. I would summarize it this way: don't be stupid in love because God has better plans, don't just settle. In Filipino: 'Wag matigas ang ulo!

The introduction even has a title "Use your head girl!", which let's all be honest, ang dami naman na kasi talagang nagpapakatangang babae ngayon. We, girls/ladies/women, are emotional in more ways than one, but we all know that we can't just base love and romance on pure emotions. Ouch right? But it's true! It is also sort of a wake up call that regardless of the modern age we face, the old rules of love still apply. Since it's in a Christian perspective, there were references of the love stories in the Bible which were all enlightening. Just by the first pages of this book already shouts: Don't settle. Set a standard. I am rating this book 3 out of 5 stars. More on my blog: http://merieisms.blogspot.com/2014/07...

    This is a must-have book. I bought this book because I am so broken and I need a reason to move on. I need an assurance that there is more to life than love, that there is someone for me, that whatever thing I need just to forget a heartbreak. And this book satisfied me. I could read it over and over again. It is about knowing, accepting, valuing, respecting and loving yourself. There are many Bible verses in this book that will make you ponder and think, 'Yeah. Right.' You should love yourself, g This is a must-have book. I bought this book because I am so broken and I need a reason to move on.

    This book was pretty phenomenal for the most part. :) A good practical read that every women should take a look at. Almost like a Christian version of "He's Just Not That into You" at certain parts. I really enjoyed this read, but the reason I have awarded it 4 stars rather than 5 is because of this part: "Though he should never control you, allow him to lead the relationship and feel that he is in charge.

Almost like a Christian version of "He's Just Not That into You" at certain parts. I really enjoyed this read, but the reason I have awarded it 4 stars rather than 5 is because of this part: "Though he should never control you, allow him to lead the relationship and feel that he is in charge. Women have become so independent that a man no longer feels needed. Since men are fixers, if they can't find anything to fix or anyone to help, they move on. As we mentioned before, a man has to see himself as part of the solution to your needs. He has to see you as an assignment in his life. If you rob him of that, he has nowhere to go. Part of getting a man to commit to you is feeding his need to be needed as well as desired." (182-183) I understand what the goal of this statement is. It's to inform women that being self-sufficient is not bad, but not to be so prideful as to make the man feel like you have no use for him in your life. I believe there should be a give and take between both partners in a relationship. This should be reciprocal for both of them. However, it should not be an issue of "control" which is what worries me slightly about this wording. I don't think a man needs to feel like he is "in control" to feel like his opinion is highly valued. I find that idea a bit archaic. Yet, OF COURSE it is wrong to demasculinate a man by throwing his opinion out the window all the time, but you can affirm him without having to make him feel like he is the "boss" of the relationship. Also, the other wording that bothers me is when the woman is referred to as an "assignment", and the man referred to as the "solution" to my needs. Only God fulfills my most basic spiritual and emotional needs. He makes me whole. I am a whole person without a man and with God, but the man complements me. I think there is a way to show deep gratification and appreciation for everything your partner does for you without pretending like you are his construction project. That's all. :) Other than this one statement, I thought the book was pretty on-point theologically and practically. Beautiful writing style and profound analogies.

    This was such an insightful book. I think its so necessary to read especially when you are in the season of decision over a spouse. I like how practical the writer's were on matters concerning being available and relationships. It's important to involve GOD every step of the way. HE should guide and lead because HE knows just what is right for us as HIS children. The hardest part is simply letting go of control and patiently waiting. These are things I definitely need to do as a person. This boo This was such an insightful book. I think its so necessary to read especially when you are in the season of decision over a spouse.

    Overall, I found this book to be enlightening. It has some great points that you can kind of twist to fit your life. I even took things from it that were unrelated to the overall topic- which I always like in books. There were definitely parts that made me roll my eyes with a "don't patronize me" feeling but I can also appreciate that perhaps I'm not quite the ideal audience it was written for. I will say that Chapters 12 made me gawk ("the audacity!") and I'd skip it all together if you're stil Overall, I found this book to be enlightening.

    I looked at other covers of this book and I thought that I had read this book a few years ago. Even so I went ahead and bought it because I wanted to read it again. It is a great book that encourages women to revert back to the old rules of love. Sometimes I think women today have evolved so much professionally that they forget to remain lady-like and feminine. The aggression exhibited by some women when dating is alarming. However, you can't beat a book like this that gives the male perspective I looked at other covers of this book and I thought that I had read this book a few years ago.

    Yet another embarrassing dating book I will admit to having read. I think it's reasonable and sane. It's very much from a Christian perspective, so it's not for everyone, though if the religious bent of the book and the occasional old-fashioned sounding perspective doesn't offend (e.g. they encourage women to develop "home skills"), a lot of it is fairly original to the genre, reasonable, and helpful.

    Easy to read. I like Michelle McKinney Hammond's style. I've read her book before but this one was co-written with a man, so it made it more interesting and helpful. The unspoken rules of love is not truly unspoken but it's been lost in the current language of our times. When love was equated with respect and value, it's now some other things.

    A must read for every single woman. This book is very insightful and has a lot of practical teachings which will help woman know their worth and the power they possess when it comes to relationships. Thanks Michelle and Joel, I did not put this book once I got hold of it.

    Learn more about what a genuine and real relationship is. It is not just emotion. This book is a must have for those who have experienced broken relationships and for those who are still looking for love in the wrong places!
