Review of “Shopping for Mr. Right”

Shopping For Mr. RightShopping for Mr. Right…because you don’t have time for another Mr. Wrong by Marsha Petrie Sue

My friend Marsha Petrie Sue wrote this 125-page book based on her experience — and frustrations — looking for a partner after her first marriage ended. She illustrates her lessons learned with her own stories as well as those of others. She’s came up with a process that worked for her and she believes will work for others.

Marsha’s writing style is similar to her speaking style — light, conversational and sprinkled with humor. She integrates her shopping metaphor whenever possible. She has also sprinkled in surveys to help you assess yourself.

The book’s chapter titles are:

  • The Ga-Ga Factor
  • Location, Location, Location
  • Broken Picker
  • Returns: Breaking Up is Hard to Do
  • Excuse Me Madam, Would Like Paper or Plastic
  • Making a Purchase: Focus, Finance and Flexibility
  • Why Marriages Succeed or Fail

The book’s promo describes what it provides:

This book is designed for women and men who have made poor choices in their dating repertoire and who would like to find someone who matches their desired mate-model. Men will find the information useful because of the many resource suggestions. There are incredible tools in identifying a source that anyone can be comfortable with — whether a matchmaker, the Internet, personal ads and so on. In addition, Shopping For Mr. Right gives the insights and energy to move relationship forward in a positive fashion so that people do not wind up as a statistic.

If you’d like a little motivation, as well as some proven how to’s, you’ll enjoy this book. Order here.

    Hi DG,

    This book sounds tailor made for me. I seem to pick the worst men, players, losers, users, you name it; actually, maybe that’s the problem, I don’t pick them, they pick me. Unfortunately, not being a particularly attactive or assertive woman, I don’t have the guts to approach guys, so I wait for them to approach me first, which lessens the sting of rejection somewhat even if it hasn’t yet netted me my Mr. Perfect.

    What I really want to know is this: why is it only the players that approach me? What’s wrong with the nice guys? I notice they all whine and moan about nice women not being interested in nice guys, blah, blah, blah, but did it ever occur to them that if they actually APPROACHED a nice woman (such as myself) and spoke to her about anything whatsoever they might find out that, yes, nice gals are looking for nice guys, we just don’t believe in chasing after them.

    Best wishes from bookyone 🙂
