Better Single Than Sorry
Better Single Than Sorry A frank, insightful and entertaining book by a glamorous US TV star about how there is more to life than being in a relationship for the sake of it, and how to be happy even if you are single.
'It's time for women to start telling the world - and each other - why it's better to be single than sorry. Yes, it's great to have a boyfriend or a husband, and I'm not suggesting women give up the idea of happily ever after, but I don't believe in settling... The truth is, we know what we're looking for and we must never sell ourselves short.'
Life can be fabulous on your own - the antidote to dating books!
BETTER SINGLE THAN SORRY has a simple, refreshing and powerful message. It's far better to be single than to end up with someone who doesn't make you happy just because you want to be in a couple, feel pressured by society / your friends / your mother, or you want to get married or have kids. She's all for compromising and being realistic, but she encourages women not to settle for the sake of it.

Some information on the author of the book.
Jennifer Schefft is well known in the US as the glamorous girl who turned down not one but two opportunities to get hitched to the seemingly 'perfect' man live on TV (The Bachelor and The Bachelorette) and caused massive controversy. Glamorous and refreshing, she has appeared on countless TV shows including Oprah, Good Morning America and the Ellen DeGeneres Show and has graced the covers and pages of People magazine and many others publications.
The topic can be really sensitive. I hope you can be really critical and able to support your ideas and opinions.
