5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic , especially if your cool and currently in the UK, 23 Dec 2013

This review is from: Happy to be Single: The Pleasures of Independence (Paperback)
Yes great book free from political spin and UK fairtales of Hollywood relationships . When I first read this gem it was the Bliar era regime where he and the establishment were talking of UK being a land of opportunity and home of the brave etc and encouraging sheeple to go to university and or training courses from everything to sports science , public services , forensic science and special security management and thousands (it seems) of art courses etc . USA is land of opportunity and not constrained to class barriers , so UK can be too , was the fairy tales spun by Bliar . This came around late 90s -early to mid 2000s =less sheeple thinking of marriage , mortgages and babies with welfare payments as they flocked to school to become fashion designers , artists , close protection consultants and athletic peak performance consultants in the UK closely fed as to possibilities by Bliar , UK schools , careers counsellors and US tv over eastenders etc . Reality bite big time with these courses not having jobs in the UK or open to about 5 % . The Bliar regime fast re marketed , re packaged UK jobs with fancy titles with low paid call center work packaged as legal , sales and marketing , and finance lol . The special security jobs turned out to be supermarket security and CCTV watchers . The psychologist posts turned out a few opportunities for thousands applying etc .
The sheeple flocked back into their relationships to make up for their jobs and sooner than later to fill those voids and get some money from the gov and or get out of work they had babies in abundance so back to square one . Now you just need to look around to see the miserable faces of the UK sheeple stuck in relationships and marriages with tax benefits from the gov .So this book is more relevant than ever before , in UK , especially !!! Do not get me wrong , middle class relationships in UK can be good and standard relationships outside of UK good and wholesome , but if between such things - this can be a guide to becoming better in yourself and not being a plus one , and building up a fulfilling life that you can bring more to a relationship . The worst relationships are the ones that involve low self esteem , poverty and a pair who are unfulfilled in life , so this book shows how you can avoid those interments by working on yourself , being your own best buddy for a better life and being detached , but determined and not desperate which can result in better relationships later on . I have been in an awesome non UK relationship , and know how good they can be , but intend further work on myself prior to the new relationship , so its better .
