Book Description:

Author, talk-show host, columnist, radio and TV personality Karen Salmansohn has been writing advice and mentoring young women for years, encouraging an end to the cycle of less-than-healthy relationship choices that are easy to start, but oh so difficult to break.

Salmansohn’s personal overcoming of difficult relationship traps has become Prince Harming Syndrome a brand new self-help book that mixes Karen’s life experience and the philosophy of Aristotle to create an intimately witty and personal account for women of all ages looking to break their bad habits for good! Karen will teach you how to seek out the 5 essentials for true love NONE OF THEM being what you'd normally think about looking for! For example, one essential is to seek a guy who "values growing." If your man doesn’t value growing, then your relationship won’t survive because a relationship is only as strong as its weakest moments. If your man values growing, he will be open to discussing problems, meeting your needs and evolving so as to make sure problems don’t keep repeating.

My Thoughts:

Although I am not a self help reader, when I saw the title and cute cover of this book I wanted to know what was inside. The book is very visually pleasing, with cute designs at each new chapter. You can tell it is well organized and the author has had personal experiences with her subject matter. The re-occurrence of references to Aristotle was kind of cute and endearing. The subject matter and the writing in the book did leave something to be desired but if you are a young woman addicted to bad boys, you might need the wake up call that this book offers.


  1. This sounds cute, but unnecessary for me. I love the cover, though!

  2. Sounds like a great book for women!

    BTW, your blog's awesome. Keep it up! :)
