    1. I’ve read other singles book, and they were usually treating being single as a temporary phase. They are “how to meet your mate books” masked as “be happy and single” books. If you are single and want to remain that way temporarily or permanently, you should read this book. The author did a great job of discussing different things that singles have to deal with. I also loved that she included single parents in the book. I think that a lot of the other books I’ve read have also forgot [...]

    2. "Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is" -Sophia LorenI decided to read this book because I wanted to know how to appreciate and enjoy my life as a single woman and reading from it, I did. One aspect that Judy Ford emphasizes is in expanding your social circle and being open with anyone you meet, not ostracizing yourself and living with the stigma of the 'people who are single'. You have the ultimate freedom! All in all, amazing read and I can see myself picking this bo [...]

    3. This is a great "pick-me-up" book that really make me enjoy and love the single life, either I am in a relationship or not! I enjoyed the anecdotes and the stories from both the authors and people she talked too. This book allow you to see things under different angle and to not only "make the best of the situation" but see how precious and awesome the life you have on your own is and can be!It's a book I will read again and again. It's easy to read and even just skimming through it is enough to [...]

    4. As cheesy as it could sometimes be, actually gives an honest and different perspective on a sore topic. This can't be said for most books of this nature.

    5. This is the first time I read a book about singles I expected a book talking about how to enjoy this period of your life until it passes and you get in a relationship The book surprised me by talking about the importance of this phase in everybody's life without thinking about it as some time that will eventually pass. There are lots of things to appreciate in being single and the book reveals the stories of lots of people who not only accept the fact that they are single but also like it and en [...]

    6. Read this book after a horrible 4 year relationship. I was stumped I didn't know how to get back to the "real world" let alone the "single life" this book reminded me that most of my life I've been single & before my relationship I was happy. I would highly recommend this book, I plan on restarting this book this month.

    7. As someone who enjoys parts of being single, Ford's book was liberating. It discusses ways to grow in your single-ness and how to approach the cultural pressure of being in a relationship to find happiness.

    8. This book was a little too hetero-normative for me. The author started talking about the first time a woman needs to take care of a spider by herself and the first time a young man has to cook for himself and I just sort of glazed over. There was some good advice about not viewing being single as a temporary state between relationships but after reading the parts about the expected gender roles I had a hard time taking the other things she had to say very seriously. I'm passing this book along t [...]

    9. i love single lifehaving the courage to be single should be praised. couples are the shit of course but so are singles. life is totally rad no matter your status. this book does a fine job of expressing that fact!

    10. I've been through two break-ups already this year, so I was more receptive to this book than I normally am to self-help. Had I read this book in a bitter frame of mind, I would have noted, I'm sure, how trite it can be at times. Instead I underlined passages and lines that gave me new clarity. It's always so hard to pick one self-help book out of the sea that address your specific needs. I went on with the purpose of looking for books on singledom. This one stood out for the cover and the subti [...]

    11. This book jumped out at me at the book store. I had recently gotten a divorce and was single for the first time since I was a teenager. Initially I was happy to be single and free and moved to a new city in my own apartment. The fact that I was alone started to really creep in. I dated and had several lovers, and they taught me a lot, but I kept getting this sense I needed to be single for awhile. I kept feeling scared to commit because I would lose myself in my partner. When I asked what I need [...]

    12. Struggled with the rating of this book but had to drop down to 2 stars because it was really just "okay." I don't think I was necessarily the target demographic for this but did take away some interesting tidbits to mull over. The book could have used a few more rounds of editing, IMO. Some typos, repetitive words/phrasing, and it just fell very flat in parts. I found myself skimming the last half and the only reason I finished it was because I paid $9 for the Kindle edition. It never really cap [...]

    13. I enjoyed this book, I am not going to comment on anything really "smart" about the book. I liked it for what it was, there were no typos which was a good thing. Others can review the book for writing style etc, however, that wasn't the point of reading this book for me. I am happy to see a point of view that provides some insight and encouragement to single people, since society likes to tell people otherwise.I found it a fun read.

    14. I'd probably give this book a 3.5 if I could. I enjoyed all the inspiration about living a single life from Judy Ford and her own experiences. I feel that this book was aimed more for a bit of a different crowd that I can't relate to - people who are either divorced or widowed, single parents etc. Nonetheless, a lot of great inspiration and motivation for those who are currently single. Side note: I noticed there were a ton of typos in this book.

    15. There's some really good stuff in here. I like how the author tries to reach out to people of all ages and with various levels of emotional baggage.On the other hand, I didn't like the "everything happens for a reason" mentality that kept sneaking into otherwise sound advise. There's also a lot of deism that the book would have been better off without.

    16. This book seems like it would be a typical book for girls who get dumped and are sado hoo It is totally the opposite! This book actually focuses on the positive aspects of living an independent life (you can be in a relationship and still be independent!). It will remind you of all the good things about being happy with yourself.

    17. haven't actually picked this up again since megz and i started it in the car on the way back from barack in bangor. (been reading a lot of EW, taking home a lot of work) so i haven't finished it - and neither has megan! so don't believe her rating, she's only heard 40 or so pages of it, and i've heard her use a quote from it more than once. :P she loved it!

    18. Not exactly a page-turner, but I'm determined to finish it. Basically this middle aged divorcee writes about how great being single is and how we need to embrace it, blah, blah, blah. I think it is making me hate being single even more. :)

    19. I was a little skeptical about reading this book, but it was so good. A definite read for any young female. It's a great reminder that single can be great too!

    20. Not much in here of use to me - i guess i'm not the target audience as i don't have kids, nor was i previously married.

    21. OMG - The best book I've ever read on finding happiness while being single! Definitely a must-read.

    22. I couldn't relate to all of the experiences and examples, but overall it was very informative and made me think on a more interpersonal level.
