The Highest-Rated Women’s Dating Book on Amazon for 157
Weeks, April 2010 to April 2013
Hi there and welcome! Dr Ali here, your friendly neighborhood author of books to empower awesome women like yourself. You may have found us through a Huffington Post article, an email that was forwarded to you, a website that reviewed the book, or just good ol’ divine intervention. However you found us, I’m glad you’re here.
So. I’m thinking this book contains some kind of cure for you if some or all of the following apply to you:
- You are smart and educated.
- You’re a career-minded woman.
- You’re between 22 and 90 (not really for college-age women or younger, sorry).
- You’re too busy to go out and meet men.
- Sure, you meet plenty of men, but they’re just not the right caliber.
- You’ve had decent boyfriends, but the relationships just didn’t last for some unfathomable reason.
- You’ve kinda thrown your hands up in frustration and given up on the whole dating thing.
- You just got outta college and are now thrust into this world of grown-up dating where people don’t live in the dorm next door and random hookups at parties are less frequent.
- You recently experienced a breakup, divorce or death of a spouse after a long-term union, and you’re ready to wade back into the waters again.
- You have a history of picking the wrong guy — bad boys who really weren’t good for you.
- You just don’t get guys in general. What are they thinking? Are they thinking?
- You have a friend who fits any of the categories above.
- You may not think that you fit any of the categories above, but your friends are strangely insistent that you do.
In this page, I’m going to do my darndest to let you find your own reasons to get 11 copies of The Tao of Dating — one for you and ten for your best friends, of course. And if you’re not quite ready to give all your friends a copy yet — fine, just get two. Because now is an excellent time to be happy and fulfilled, don’t you think?
See, one of my mentors told me that if you have a solution to people’s problems, you have a moral obligation to let ’em know. If you’ve got a cure, you can’t be hoarding it while people in need are walking around! That’s just mean. Since I don’t mean to be mean, I’m gonna ask all of you to get the book.
Life changing viewpoint on dating philosophy for women. A MUST read, June 17, 2011, by Kimberly McGeorge at Amazon - I think the price of this book is worth one sentence. "Fullfillment is a feeling....not a person." The rest of the book explains what this means and why this is important. Dr. Ali appears to have deep compassion for both men and women stuck in the same dating behaviors that have resulted in the same miserable situations they have found themselves in the past. If you take the advice and insight in this book to heart -- Your behavior will change, what and who you attract will change and then you can pass this book on to one of the other millions of other women who need a wake up call.
Now I don’t know if there was ever a book that ever made you feel an incredible must have it now compulsion. You know that feeling? Maybe it was for the last Harry Potter installment. Or Eat Pray Love. Or the last Twilight book (gasp). Whatever the book was, that’s the feeling I want you to have for The Tao of Dating! Because while those other books were pleasant stories you’ve mostly forgotten by now, this one can increase your enjoyment of life for the rest of your earthly existence! Slightly more important.
Ahem. I believe I’ve made myself clear.
So I’m going to do this in three ways, in no particular order:
3) Show you the table of contents and give you oodles of samples so you’ll know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the book’s right for you. Hey, you don’t buy clothes without trying ’em on — why should a book be different?
4) Address and relieve all the pre-purchase concerns for this book so you can buy with complete peace of mind for ever and all time, hallelujah and amen
1) Show you some of the Amazon reviews of the book written by people just like yourself. (Absurdly complimentary — kinda crazy, actually)
2) Make an offer that’s so absurdly juicy and delicious, you’ll feel that getting the book is a complete no-brainer.
“I want to get the book but for this one itty-bitty thing…”
Recently I did a supremely scientific survey of my readers who were still on the fence, asking them if it was starting to hurt sitting like that. ‘Cause, you know, fences are pointy and stuff. You should probably step down and get an easy chair or chaise longue or something (and it is longue, not lounge, so don’t get me started on that — but I digress). In the meantime, here’s what you said:
Itty-bitty thing #1: Cost.
Well, no, the book is not free — something has to keep the Moet and caviar flowing and the miniature elephants fed around here. The book is potentially worth thousands for saving you from very real cost, pain and heartache — and the unquantifiable joy it can bring to your life. Compared to those, The Tao of Dating is very nearly free: $29.95 print copy, $19.97 ebook with embedded audio and bonuses, $20 audiobook.
Let me ask you — how much does one tepid date that goes nowhere cost you? Paying for your own dinner and drinks would run you $30-$40. What if the book saved you from just one nasty, abusive relationship, or spared you one rancorous divorce? How much is that worth? What if it enabled you to find the love of your life with whom you build a life and a family together? Is that worth more than 20 bucks?
Do you deserve to be happy? Well, $1200 Louis Vuitton bags and $600 Manolo Blahniks can’t make you happy (but they can make your feet hurt.) This book can make you happy — and I promise your feet will be fine.
Ladies — I’m giving away gold ingots for peanuts here, $100 bills for pennies. MOREOVER: you get a 30-day money-back guarantee from me. If you like the book, you’ve just gotten yourself the bargain of the century. And if you don’t, you pay nada. Win-win-win.
for all women, however smart…., May 02, 2010, by Ruth at Amazon - Dr Ali's style is no nonsense, but gentle - like a kind brother or friend. The book uses both a scientific and spiritual approach. There are lots of good practical suggestions - for example on where to meet potential dates, and how to spot men who ultimately won't be able to measure up but also there is the spiritual Tao side which helps one to let go a little and trust in the abundance of the universe. I thought the book had two main themes - one is to be the best version of yourself you can be for your own sake and working towards that. The other is the insight into the way men think and what is important to them and appreciate it is different from women, but no less valid. Knowing what matters to them helps you interact differently and more successfully - and to be prepared if things don't go quite as you hoped. Like one of the other reviewers I don't fit into the professional, IQ off the chart model - but the advice and ideas put forward by Dr Ali will apply to all sorts of women. The book has helped me to understand how important it is to be myself and that being authentic is so much more attractive. There's lots of great information in the book, and I have read it through more than once - in fact writing this has reminded me of so many good bits that I'm going to read it all again.
Itty-bitty thing #2: Not sure if it’s any better than the other dating books you’ve read or if it’s relevant to you.
I believe this is the best dating guide for women in the solar system right now. Why? Because I read all the other good books on love, romance and dating and put their best stuff in The Tao of Dating. Not very different from what a great chef like Thomas Keller or Alice Waters would do: assemble the best ingredients, and put them together in a delectable package.
But you don’t have to take it from me; the reviews are below: average 4.8/5.0 stars. Even better, look at the table of contents, read the excerpts, listen to the downloads and decide for yourself. In the meantime, I’ll tell you the main way it’s different from the other dating books. Those books are primarily about what you can do to get him. This book is primarily about you and how you can be happy.
Amazing LIFE book, not just dating, June 03, 2011, by LiveToRead at Amazon - GET THIS BOOK! I have never purchased nor felt the need to purchase a dating book before. I was drawn to this particular work because Dr. Ali combines spiritual tenets with proven scientific facts to give great advice for dating and for life, and I am so glad I got it. All of his tips are really about how to cultivate a positive and confident outlook on life, which creates a positive and fulfilling dating experience. My favorite nugget of wisdom - and there are many- is to want and seek the food, not the menu. This means not looking for someone who looks good on a resume, but someone who provides real fulfillment in the form of great conversation, caring gestures and support. There are many great exercises in this book and most of them are based on the principles of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). Anyone familiar with NLP knows that it is a fantastic way to improve your life by improving your thoughts and beliefs. I found them all to be immensely helpful. Dr. Ali's writing style is easy to follow and full of humor, making this book an enjoyable read and a great self-help tool! I doubt it's a coincidence that within a week of starting to read this book I had three dates set up with three different guys :)
Itty-bitty thing #3: Time.
Oh, you have a bunch of other books to read. And a dog to walk. And that whole career thing. When do you have time to read? Or find a boyfriend? Or have fun? Or do anything for yourself? Folly.
Have a heart, sister. Your intimate relationships are the prime determinants of your happiness and health. The reason why you don’t have time to read a potentially life-altering book is probably the same as why you don’t have a boyfriend: misplaced priorities. Unless you’re a surgical resident, an I-banking drone or a mom with two toddlers, you’ve got time. So don’t give me that.
Moreover, if you don’t have time to read, there’s the audiobook version for 20 bucks, which allows you to listen to my mellifluous voice as you drive or sit on the train. With the average American daily commute at 40min, you can get through it in less than two weeks, no foolin’.
Must Have Field Guide for Life!, May 30, 2011, by TF at Amazon - My copy of "The Tao of Dating" is dog eared, highlighted, written in, and well worn. I refer back to the chapters frequently when I need a gentle and humorous reminder of how to stay on track to be my best self. It is my most trusted field guide for my everyday life. I have been moved by the information, and found that when it is put into frequent practice, the results are instant and profound. When quoting or sharing the information I have learned from the book to a friend, they often tell me how brilliant (yet common sense) it is. "The Tao of Dating" is the best gift you can give yourself or to your best girl friend. Do not wait another second to buy this book!! Thanks Dr. Ali!
Itty-bitty thing #4: Procrastination.
“I really want to, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.” Listen: if you postpone taking care of your love life for long enough, you will get old and wrinkly to the point that all guys will lose interest. Don’t postpone for another millisecond; take action. May I suggest right now. The book can be on your computer or Kindle in less than 4min.[schema type=”book” url=”http://taoofdating.com/books/the-tao-of-dating-for-women/” name=”The Tao of Dating: The Smart Woman’s Guide to Being Absolutely Irresistible” author=”Ali Binazir MD MPhil” publisher=”Elite Communications” pubdate=”2010-02-14″ isbn=”0977984575″ ebook=”yes” paperback=”yes” ]
