Book Description

15 Aug 2002 Would Like to Meet
Would Like to your very own do-it-yourself dating makeover. Tracey Cox, best-selling author of Hot Sex and Hot Relationships, begins with a candid look at body language and flirting. In her characteristically no-holds-barred style, she encourages the reader to face a few home truths and accept the fact that attracting a partner at first encounter has a lot to do with "packaging"--looking, acting, and sounding good. Jay Hunt is on hand with fashion and style advice, guiding you through not just what to wear, but how to wear it, while Jeremy Milnes--communication, confidence, and assertiveness advisor--dishes up plenty of ideas on how to raise your self-esteem and turn those awkward silences into a thing of the past. Aimed at men and women of all ages, packed with hints, tips, lists, and questionnaires, as well as plenty of "homework," transforming your love life has never been so much fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just like the TV series 25 Aug 2002
By A Customer
If you've seen the series, then you know the type of tips and advice the 'experts' dole out. The book is an easy read, and fairly compact. It is divided into 3 sections, one by each of the experts. Overall, the information is well presented and it covers aspects covered in the series plus more. Sometimes I do find myself wanting more explanation and examples. There is a list of recommended reading at the back which would provide that depth. However, the strength of the book is that brings together key tips and advice on the 3 main aspects without getting bogged down in detail. It will give you enough to make some significant improvements, and steer you on the right path.
As for the individual sections, the chatty style of Tracey Cox grates a little, but some people may like that. The other 2 gives their advice in a more direct fashion - which is how I prefer it.
The book is great to dip into, or to read straight through. If I had one other wish for the book, it is that it went on to cover the the early stage(s) of dating, ie. developing a relationship... but i guess that's another book/series.
Personally, though I'm by no means a hopeless dater, I've learnt a hell of a lot from both the series, and now the book. I would recommend it to just about anyone. It is the sort of book that even those who think they are too 'cool'/'succesful' to seek its advice, would be fascinated by the skills & tips it has to offer. Still, more the fools they!

5.0 out of 5 stars Would Like To Praise... 18 Aug 2002
It is hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't benefit immensely from buying or reading this book - whether, like participants in the television series it accompanies, they haven't had a girlfriend for 12 years, or, at the other extreme, have slept with 140 partners.
The BBC2 series has been phenomenally successful (the Press are calling it a cult) because it takes real people, pulls them apart, then puts them back together again in a rather better order.
The aim is ostensibly to improve their dating skills, but the three Dating Experts who set out to do that go much, much deeper and suggest solutions that visibly change people's lives for the better.
So far, only 16 people have been lucky enough to go through the Would Like To Meet makeover process - but this book is an answer to the prayers of the millions of viewers who wished that Tracey Cox, Jay Hunt, and Jeremy Milnes would help them change their lives, too.
It is anything but a frothy spin-off. Right from the first page, the three experts (and they are!) act like a three-in-one version of the best friend who tells us what we need to know, even if we won't find the truth particularly comfortable.
The experts will help you analyse your own body language, appearance and personality so you can appreciate, probably for the first time in your life, how you come across to others.
Once you realise that, they follow up with first-rate advice on how to project a new image that you feel comfortable with.
Tracey, one of the very few authors in the world who not only writes like a dream but looks like one, too, is rightly dismissive of those who say "be yourself", because if being yourself isn't getting you anywhere, you're in for a miserable time for the rest of your life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't have chemistry in a book 3 Dec 2002
By A Customer
I adored the programme 'Would Like to Meet' mainly because the three experts had such great chemistry and worked wonders as a team. But I suppose when you see their suggestions in print it's not the same thing and to be fair my expectations may have been very high when I ordered my copy. My problems meeting the opposite sex revolve around freezing up when I can tell they're interested in me. From the book I couldn't get what I thought was advice I could put to good use. This may be as much me as the fact a book may never be able to really handle such situations. But still i felt there could've been advice that didn't seem so absolutely basic. Who knows it may still work in the end but right now I wish there'd be another series and I could quite happily dump the book as it hasn't worked for me!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too condescending! 22 Oct 2002
By A Customer
I had high hopes when I bought 'would like to...' but these were soon dashed when I found how condescending the authors are. I mean it appeared to be aimed at 12 year olds! The so called 'advice' was the most basic common sense. From what Jeremy says about communicating to Tracy's so called knowledge to the most obvious of all being Jay's 'advice' about style and clothes. I think I can get a dating life better chatting with friends. If you have no friends maybe you'll learn something otherwise look for another dating book and hopefully it won't be aimed at juveniles.

2.0 out of 5 stars not sure if it helped or hindered 29 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Having loved the TV series of the same name I was quite disappointed with the book. For starters some of Jay's style ideas seemed pretty strict and geared to a 'Briget Jones' style - for 30something women. I'm 22 and would like something that really shows your personality more! Then Tracey's body language tips seemed completely open to interpretation. Not sure how on earth I could put any to use in a crowded bar, dating sceario, where things happen so quickly. In fact I'm sure it would distract me from conversation to think about those things. I think jeremy cam up with some good communication advice. But in the end I'm not convinced. Probably should've spent the money on some make-up.
