Matched is a clever, systematic, wonderfully constructed, and ‘to the point’ book. It directs the reader how to invest his/her energy in the right direction, focus on the cause, and build him/herself up to it, while clearing his/her head of background noises.
It is as if the author holds the reader’s hand and marches him/her, step by step, from the in-depth preparation stage, through the candidate selection stage, to the dating stage itself, towards the desired goal – finding a suitable partner for life.
Incorporating examples from life, research findings, and wonderful quotes in her text, the author looks at the reader in the eye and offers a worthy journey. In the beginning she suggests the reader to place him/herself in front of a mirror. It is crucial to first understand who you are, what motivates you, and whether you are really ready for a new relationship, she says, before looking for your other half.
