More About Much Ado about Loving by Jack Murnighan; Maura Kelly
 
 
 
Overview
Finding love should be easier than ever before, given all the freedoms we enjoy. But as it turns out, the more options we have, the more difficult attaining romantic bliss becomes. We wonder: Should we put all our energy into online dating, or hang out in bars to find someone new? Should we settle for a friendship-with-benefits, or refuse to stop looking until we happen upon true love? And if we do manage to achieve the impossible and find a perfect match--soul mate, sexual dynamo, and best buddy all in one--how can we beat the relationship doldrums when they come, as they're bound to in this hyperactive society?
In our quest to reach romantic nirvana, we turn to self-help manuals, magazines, talk shows, friends, relatives, and shrinks. But we've overlooked the true font of wisdom: the timeless stories written by great novelists. That's where "Much Ado About Loving "comes in. In its pages, two book lovers who are also advice columnists--Maura Kelly and Jack Murnighan--relay the lessons in life and love that they've learned from reading more classic novels than your English teacher, while having far more romantic conundrums than all of Jane Austen's characters combined. They've done the heavy reading--and the recovering from heartbreak--for you.
Now all you need is this book.
