How to see yourself as others see you

First of all, it's nice to finally read a book written by a woman I would actually date, not some dried up old hag who claims to know about the dating world, but has never left her computer chair. I am a guy, and I'm always trying to learn about the women I date, and try to understand their thoughts, and fears. I always said, being videotaped for 24 hours, and then watching yourself in the video, could change your life forever. This book is the next best thing. It gives the reader tools to discover just who they are, or better yet, who they "appear to be." And this is the key. How you see and feel about yourself, is usually very different from how others see you. And that is ok! But without the tools to learn and grow from, one will be forever lost. This book helps to quickly identify who you appear to be, for better or worse, and how to work on yourself, and understand how your tone, or delivery, or even facial expressions, can paint a totally different picture than what you really feel. It teaches the reader how to hone these skills, where what you feel inside, can match what's going on outside. A must for any woman in the dating world. You MUST LEARN how you are being perceived. The best intentions in the world, can be lost with the wrong delivery. WE ALL KNOW THAT! GET THIS BOOK! YOU WON'T REGRET IT. Marc D., Atlanta, GA

Solid advice for spotting toads among the princes...

I'm a guy, and I'm not the target audience for this book. Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed Cinderella Was a Liar by Brenda Della Casa. She skewers the "Prince Charming" myth and dishes out some great advice on how to attract a decent guy. And those of both genders could benefit from her suggestions on becoming comfortable with yourself first before you try and attract a potential mate. Contents: The Twelve Sisters No Prince Wants to Date; Throw Out the Proverbial Bridal Binder!; Don't Shove Your Feet into Slippers That Don't Fit; The Joy of Walking Barefoot; Having a Ball in the World of Dating; The Lies We Speak into the Mirror; One-Night Stands (and Other Bad Potions); The Curse of Verbal Diarrhea; Guaranteed Ways to Send Him Far, Far Away; The Lads Holding You Back and the Toads Who Have to Go; How and Where to Bag Your Royal; Real Royals Answer Questions for You; Your Very Own Coat of Arms; Index The fairy tale of Cinderella has Prince Charming taking Cindy away from her life of drudgery and servitude when he matches her up with the left-behind glass slipper. Ever since, girls have been raised to look for their "Prince Charming", the one true love that will sweep them away to a happily-ever-after. The problem is, it's all a fantasy. Trying to find that one Prince Charming puts a ton of pressure on everyone, and causes real guys to be overlooked. Della Casa interviewed quite a few real guys to find out how they feel and think about dating and relationships, gathered up their input, and used it to show how a women's quest for her "Prince" is often a series of missteps, disappointments, and disasters. Instead, "Cinderella" should relax and learn to enjoy her own company. Developing your own interests and activities guarantee that you'll never be at a loss for options, and you're not dependent on someone else to make you happy. One you get to that point, then let dating be the opportunity to meet people, have fun, and learn what you like and don't like. You don't have to fit into the slipper of everyone you date, nor do you want to wear a slipper that gives you blisters. Relax... And if you're a guy reading this, much of the advice is just as applicable. The focus is a bit different, in that we're not looking for someone to take us away and provide for our every need (or at least we shouldn't be). But learning to have your own interests, as well as looking at dating as a way to find out what you do and don't like is a great idea. You can also work on your own bad dating habits so that you don't scare off your Cindy when you do meet her... Great advice, and a lot of humor mixed in here. I had a lot of fun reading this one...

Great book for teenage girls

This is a great book for teenage girls. It stresses the good qualities of waiting to have sex. It tells how even boys that were interviewed admitted to really using the girls who give "it" up to too easily. But those same boys don't want to have the girls that they think are too easy for girlfriends. Since the boys know that if a girl gives in for them, she probably has done it in the past with others. I think we all want our daughters to know this, but somehow they don't believe it when it comes from us. Thanks


This is a FANTASTIC BOOK!!! Its humerous, its smart, charming, witty, and quite frankly ladies, honest. I have recommended this book to all of my female friends and have bought several copies for them. Great read!!!

Witty and Real!

Cinderella was a Liar is a delightful and comical piece that really makes you go, "that is so me, or that is so true". The book uses humor and real life experiences to teach some single gals new tricks on dating. Highly recommend this book as the style is unique to the market and many of the unsaids are finally said!
