About the Book

Therapy. Cosmo. Oprah. Judge Judy. A complete makeover ... and you're still searching for the path to true love. You always knew it didn't run smooth; but you're beginning to wonder if the path is there at all.
It's there. You just need a good guidebook. And now it's here: the crystallized wisdom of the ages. Short. Funny. Concise. Bedrock. In precise pithy pages. After all, if you've tried everything else, you don't have time to waste.

If you have been looking for love in all the wrong places, or if you're looking and don't want to waste time, this is what you need to know:

'...[a] wonderful little book. ... This guidebook is at once witty and profound, playful and practical...replete with cogent observations and ... wisdom. [It is] founded on solid concepts of adaptability, maturation, and maturity, and the differentiation of reality from wish-fulfilling fantasy and narcissistic object choice.'

'A set of remarkably witty, insightful and helpful observations on romantic love, its promises and its hazards. Recommended for both the gratified and the frustrated.'
-Mortimer Ostow, M.D., P.C., Psychoanalyst

About the Author

S.C. Reiber is a pseudonym for Dorothy Ornitz, an advertising copywriter, who began this book in Michelle's kitchen, where other women at the party had gathered to munch brownies and mull over one of life's greatest mysteries: MEN!
In brownies veritas.

With the missionary zeal that often accompanies Revealed Truth she awoke the next morning and began to write.
