HOW TO CAPTURE A FIRST-RATE MATE Attracting Beauty, Brains and Bucks

by | Read by Leil Lowndes

Personal Growth • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

People deserve mates who are not beneath their social class, financial level, or appearance stratum, says the persuasive author, who sounds relentless in presenting her ideas. It's hard to disagree that above-average brains, beauty, and financial security offer clear advantages over the lack of them. Further, Lowndes is extremely confident about her ideas and presents her suggestions with memorable images. But in addition to the unappealing quality of her voice, some listeners will be put off by her high-pressure speaking style. While her suggestions are clever and there's nothing wrong with being proactive, the lesson too often comes across as calculating and self-serving. The segments on developing oneself are helpful but get lost in the barrage of strategies and manipulation. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
