Publisher's Summary

For most of his life, Dr. Glover, the author of the groundbreaking No More Mr. Nice Guy, was what he calls a "bad dater." He assumed the women he wanted were not interested in him. He believed that women disliked sex and thought men who wanted sex were bad. When he did get a girlfriend by practicing what he calls "Nice Guy Seduction," he typically hung on way too long for fear of having to enter the dating world all over again. But this all changed when he got divorced in his mid-forties. Dr. Glover decided to approach dating as if it were a scientific experiment. To his surprise, he quickly found that talking with women, getting numbers, and getting laid was nowhere as difficult as he had thought. He often wondered what planet he had landed on.

Dating Essentials for Men was born of this experiment. Dr. Glover has since taught thousands of men how to interact confidently with women and find the love and sex they have been seeking.

Are you ready to let go of the games, the tricks, the seduction, the pickup, the negs, the cocky-funny routines, the buying women drinks, the volunteering to help their sister move? Do you want to learn how to create the kind of authentic attraction that naturally brings women to you? If so, Dating Essentials for Men is the only dating guide you will ever need.

There should be a workbook attached to this book.

The author refers to a workbook which we are supposed to find on his website but it's a 200$ package that we have to buy to get that workbook. I think that's not a good thing. He should have attached the workbook to the audiobook.

Very young man must read

Loved this book, every young man must use this as a dating holy book. No matter how old you are and bad at dating (as long as you are 17 year old+) this will give an amazing kick start. Essential to procreate a healthy generation of emotionally healthy individuals

Dr Robert Glover you are god

I have tried so many things and so many people's material who call themselves dating gurus but never come across something like this which is so extraordinary. Now I have understood all the stupid mistakes I have made in my life and how we complicate our simple lives so much and become victims of our own mistakes and fears.

I wish I knew about this few years back..

This book is simply great. I finally came to know why the relationships were failing. Though difficult to accept but what he said is true. this will challenge your current paradigm. But its never too late. This is a must read for Nice guys who struggle with relationships and make something better of themselves.. simply being nice doesn't help....

overall pretty decent

I have read numerous books on dating and being successful with women. this book is decent. it has some really good info in it. I've personally experienced many of the things he discusses in the book. I would give it overall 4 stars. I felt he He talked a bit too much about self limiting beliefs. Taking risks is part of life but if you know how to read a woman it greatly reduces your risks of rejection with women. You need to know how to read body language with women. If you can read body language that will greatly reduce your rejection. You can't just tell someone don't be scared of rejection. that's utter nonsense. everyone fears rejection. that is where body language comes in. that is why he is preaching no attachment to outcomes in this book though because he knows rejection hurts. rejection and defeat are not good for self esteem. it actually lowers your testosterone, that's how powerful it is. sure you can throw out small tests to see if women are interested but if you pay attention to body language you don't always have to test. you can normally tell who is interested just by body language. That's the big part that is missing from this book.

Excellent Guide

EXCELLENT audio book. After reading Dr. Glover's first book "No More Mr. Nice Guy" I thought it would be a good exercise to listen to Dating Essentials for Men. Although I am currently in a committed relationship many of the principles in this book really do hold true based on my own empirical experience. What I like most about it is the no BS, no games and keeping it real approach espoused by Dr.Glover. I highly recommend this audio book.

One more aspect of self improvement.

I’m a middle aged man returning to the dating arena. This book has helped me to recognize what I’ve done right and where I’ve fallen short. It has helped me realize what I really want in a relationship and put me on a path to find A Really Great Woman.
Delivery is smooth and encouraging. Sequence is concise and logical. I highly recommend this book.

handy skills advice, dangerous life advice.

there is some handy guidance in social skills, the book may be worth it for the social skills guidance alone... but...

the author proposes that you date and marry *unattractive* women... because you are unattractive to women too (including the unattractive ones)...

follow that advice AT YOUR OWN PERIL...

he tells you nothing of the dire consequences of being shackled to a woman that you have no desire to have sex with, or the destructive costs of the impending divorce that is sure to follow.

Robert Glover uses his name to sell this

His first book "No more Mr nice guy" is a modern classic, probably the best non fiction book I've ever read. This book is not. it's aimed at beginners. if you're quite lost and have dated less than 2 ladies, this book could help you. it's well read but the content was not for me.

Simple. Practical & extremely insightful advice...

Simple. Practical and extremely insightful advice any man can use as soon as they drop this book to improve their success with women.

However, I believe the advise in this book will do much more than improve my dating and love life, it will improve my overall quality of life... By helping me have much more fun with the people around me.

And it will greatly enhance the quality and depth of my communication. I love part where he talks about leading a more engaging conversation. For me, that'll change a lot in my life starting today! Thanks Dr. Glover!

Definitve and Refreshingly Honest

A raw hard hitting factual insight into dating from someone that has been through the rigors of relationships, made the mistakes and learned from them. Changed my life off the bat, not only for dating, this book is a game changer. There are so many essential life facts in this book that I will read/listen to it a second time through.

Dr Robert Glover is so under appreciated!

I loved this book and will come back to this and No More Mr Nice Guy as for me both books are about growing yourself as a man.

Highly recommended as this is not about pick up, it's about learning into your masculinity, vulnerability and taking responsibility for your dating life.

You won’t regret this.

This was a great book. It really flips the switch in your head about woman. I felt like it was doable and that I had been thinking wrong about dating my entire life. It explains why my dating life has been so terrible and that for once it’s not me, not who I am or what I look like but the way I conduct myself and that the harsh but freeing fact that I’m not not every woman’s cup of tea. This won’t change no matter how hard I try.

Dr Robert Glover approach’s this topic with the idea that he wants to change your mind set and be a better man, no tricks just proven ideas that will make sense to every normal guy battling with woman.

Life changing a must read!

Great starting book for blokes who have no clue or who are shy

This book has mixed reviews and some of the terminology, will hit home hard. I think he has got the audience right. Men genuinely put girls on a pedestal and need help in the approach. He is changing the mindset of men, because unfortunately girls run the world currently.

I think the term wounded creature is correct, as we are all human and no amount of beauty can make up for personality.

I do not agree with the writer, telling the audience to not go for good looking girls. But then later in the book he explains, it’s ok to want sex and to use sexual urges.

Very good book and highly recommend.

Adding to the discontinued wave of pickup artestry

It had some good points but overall it had alot of 'be this, don't do that' tactics which is not what the dating field needs more of. Unfortunately it's a hard pass for me, had to stop listening half way through it
