Great tips for more than just dating
Yeah, the narration is good and it's a fun yet educational listening experience. The book certainly lives up to its title.
I really enjoyed the analogies used throughout the book and also how the author is genuine about the reality of some scenarios. He doesn't claim to have all the answers but certainly gives some good general advice that anyone can apply and use to make informed decisions.
The tone is fun yet is still educational regarding delivering solid advice.
I think the main takeaway was that there's not a one size fits all type of formula which many people expect when it comes to dating and his experiences showcase that, however, you're it's not rocket science either and there is some general guidelines that can be applied to decrease the chances of having a bad experience. One segment that really struck a positive chord was when he talked about how his band may have had plenty of crappy gigs but the really good ones made it the whole journey worthwhile despite the constant disappointment. He even gave an example of a crappy gig which ended up having a very positive outcome which he was able to tie into dating. I also took this as general life advice as often there are many activities that may not result in our desired outcome at times but it's part of the journey and if we give up, we won't be able to cherish the positive outcomes that come along the way which otherwise would not appear.
The only thing I didn't like was that although the advice was good and is something that anyone can apply - even both genders in most cases, I couldn't help but feel that at times it was hard to relate a bit to him because of his polyamorous status. Since it could be argued that it would present itself as a challenge and it indeed does as he points out with some examples, I feel like it also gave him some sort of advantage in terms of not being hung up about failure and whatnot as at the end of the day, he still had his main gf. Also, there was a strong bias towards online dating being super effective which to be fair, he clearly points out that it's what worked best for him specifically but may not be too appealing to those who have tried it with less than stellar results as he makes it sound likes it's almost failproof whereas if you dig online, you'll see that many have quite the opposite experience. I myself have not been too satisfied with it. But again to be fair, the book is more about how to deal with dating and going on dates rather than acquiring them hence the title.
