In an eye-opening, brutally honest, often funny, sometimes painful journey that culminates in a redefining of romance, Gottlieb expands on her 2008 article in "The Atlantic" that explores women''s acceptance of Mr. Good-Enough rather than waiting for Prince Charming.
From the Publisher:
The controversial national bestseller! || Nearly forty and single, Lori Gottlieb faced the unthinkable: she'd wasted her best years chasing an elusive Prince Charming who might not even exist. Meanwhile, her friends who'd "settled" for Mr. Good Enough ended up married to excellent husbands and fathers. || This is an eye-opening, funny, painful, and always truthful in-depth examination of modern relationships and a wake-up call about getting real about Mr. Right.
Expanding on a popular article she wrote for Atlantic Monthly, journalist and memoirist Lori Gottlieb encourages women to quit waiting for the perfect guy and settle for an available fellow who can fulfill their most important needs. Gottlieb shows that too many women miss romantic opportunities because they stubbornly insist on trying to find a guy who is handsome, athletic, artistic, rich, funny, charming, tall, stylish, generous, kind to animals, nice to their mother, a great dancer, a gourmet cook, and a dynamo in the bedroom. The irrepressible author knows all about unrealistic expectations from her own past dating experience, and she seeks guidance from matchmakers, relationship experts, psychologists and even clergy members to discover how she and any other woman can find true love and happiness simply by lowering their standards.


"Part cautionary memoir, part field study, [Gottlieb's] account of her own stalled search for a husband is honest and darkly comic....[Her] triumph of experience over hope is not as depressing as it sounds. She skewers herself and her post-feminist peers so accurately and disarmingly that we wish we knew an unattached man to fix her up with." - Amy Finnerty 02/14/2010
