Publisher's Write-Up

You've made the comment a million times - if only that person in your life came with a set of instructions. Whether you've been married forever, just met, or you've been together for a while but want to take your relationship to a new level, we'd all like a little written guidance now and then to take some of the guesswork out of our relationships. Whatever your situation, the book you've been waiting for is here. Someone finally wrote it... The Owner's Manual.

The Owner's Manual is the perfect gift to give that someone - or potential someone - in your life. Friend or lover, the questions will inspire laughter, good conversation, and a new or renewed closeness as you learn more about yourself and share it with someone you care about. Truly interactive, the receiver of the book provides the answers to a variety of questions, then returns the book to the giver.

The perfect way to enjoy The Owner's Manual is by buying two, exchanging them, and then acting on the information you receive, whether it's a shoe size or a favourite sexual fantasy or decide.

Review by Denise M. Clark
Rating 8/10
The "'Owner’s Manual' is precisely what it claims to be. An owner’s manual. But this one doesn’t come with your latest DVD player or appliance. It’s meant for people. That’s right, people… you know, your husband, boyfriend, significant other…

Want to take the guesswork out of dating, or become more involved with that partner, lover, boyfriend or husband? Try this book. It’s fun and light-hearted, while making a concentrated effort to get people to understand important things about one another. It encourages people to learn more about their dates or mates and everything in between. What they like to eat to how they like their sex. Don’t like to talk about your pet peeves? Write it down. Don’t know exactly how to tell your better half that you just love to spend money? Write it down.

This book is sort of an 'Everything You Wanted to Know About Me But Were Afraid to Ask' approach. Go ahead and give it a try. After all, open and honest communication between two people is the key to a solid basis for any relationship. Authors Ford and Goodman make learning about someone fun and less restricting, enabling one to 'speak' honestly. Among covered topics: Feeding Requirements, Alone Time, Weekends, What I Like/Don’t Like and My Perfect Day.

These two ladies have created the perfect gift for any relationship and have put it together in a stylish, old-fashioned yet utterly contemporary journal. This one has got to find a place in every couple’s home, for the lessons learned and the concept behind it stresses the journey any couple takes toward understanding and companionship.
