Book Description

1 Jan 2007

As psychology advances its understanding of the mind and brain, perhaps the last remaining bastion of mystery about why we do what we do relates to love and attraction. However, recent research suggests that even the mysteries of attraction are being revealed - which is great news for those amongst us who would rather not leave seduction to chance.

In this illuminating follow-up to his acclaimed bestseller, The Motivated Mind, Dr Raj Persaud draws on the very latest research to show not only how to increase your attractiveness generally, but how to become absolutely irresistible to anyone. For example, do you know... that experiments on dating can predict with over 80% accuracy who will be attracted to who by whether just a few simple conversational strategies are used on a date? why abnormally low lighting is strongly associated with romance, why women wear blusher on their cheeks, or lipstick to enhance their pouting lips? Or that seeking to be agreeable on a date is not actually the most attractive or successful strategy to use. And for anyone out there who is looking for that rare combination of brains and beauty, there is reassuring news: current research reveals that it is indeed perfectly possible to guess a person's IQ from the way they look. Frank, witty and packed with useful questionnaires and invaluable advice, Simply Irresistible is the essential guide on how to catch - and keep - your perfect partner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astoundingly insightful 14 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Persaud explains the truths about love deftly and amusingly. Forget the accusations about plagiarism; it's irrelevant to what needs be known. He uses perspectives of scientific psychology, meaning he uses the results of experiments and tests that have repeatedly shown congruent results or have confirmed empirical evidence. The only thing "theoretical" is evolutionary psychology, but even the concept of evolution cannot be adequately replaced by any other inferences.

Chapter (Ch.) topics & Questionnaires (Qrs) are as follows:

- Introduction: Understanding the basic rules of attraction. Questionnaire (Qr) at the end of the chapter measures one's degree of commitment.
- Ch.1: Understanding the basic rules of attraction. Qr measures one's view on how attractive we appear to the complementary ("opposite") sex.
- Ch.2: How the science of psychology can help relationships. Qr measures how companionate vs passionate we are.
- Ch.3: Dating with confidence. Qr tests for confidence in flirting & dating.
- Ch.4: How to flirt. Qr assesses one's ability to charm.
- Ch.5: Taking a risk, taking a chance. (No Qr)
- Ch.6: Detecting deception, & knowing when & how to trust. (No Qr)
- Ch.7: Is your face your fortune? (No Qr)
- Ch.8: What is the perfect body, & why? (No Qr)
- Ch.9: Quick & dirty sex. (No Qr, but there are case studies)
- Ch.10: Sleeping around. Qr assesses the likelihood of one committing adultery.
- Ch.11: How to know who's right for you. First Qr assesses the likelihood of a lasting loving relationship. Second Qr assesses how well one knows one's partner.
- Ch.12: Making it last. Qr assesses one's ability to love unconditionally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Resistance is futile! 12 July 2008
Dr Raj may recently have hit the headlines for paying one literary 'homage' too many, but never mind the fact that his medical license has been suspended for three months! This book still contains extremely relevant advice for those who are seeking to obtain a soul mate. Beginning with the process of capturing your ideal partner, Dr Raj also goes on to offer some useful tips on how to secure them for the long haul. If Persaud's approach lacks in old-fashioned romanticism, it more than makes up for that in terms of effectiveness. Admittedly, he does not offer a great deal of information that couldn't be picked up from a number of other self-help books, but what else would you expect from the old magpie! The important thing is that once you're armed with this advice, no woman will be able to escape your clutches. From fitting out a cellar with soundproofing, to the purchase of a reliable tranquilizer gun, Dr Raj will guide you through each and every stage of the process.

4.0 out of 5 stars really interesting stuff 4 Aug 2011
Good information, presented in a scientific manner. Not your usual self-help book. Provides you the information, and allows you to decide how you want to use it, rather than preaching at you. A good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Becoming more attractive to the opposite sex. 24 Feb 2007
This book really qualifies a lot of things in the dating world--i.e. that in order to find the "perfect" mate, you must become irristible to them. It's a good concept and can really help when you're out looking for a potential partner. However, if you want to "date around" a bit more, then this book isn't really about that. It's about "the one", so to speak. However, it's got a lot of valuable information inside and could help quite a bit. Along with this one, I also recommend "Chicks: A User's Guide" for men as I found it helped me with my game as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars not what the title says 1 July 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a disapointment; simply because it is not what the title says it is. Most of this book is about statistics; what the scientists and or doctors/university proffesors have found. If you want a book that talks about statistics, this is the perfect buy, otherwise, don't buy it - you'll waste your time and money.
