It feels very centered around by a woman, for for women. I have received no indication that this is or will give men any insight on dating directly; although i'm only on chapter 5 at this time. See 1 question about The Game of Desire…. Lists with This Book.

Sep 26, Meghan Hughes rated it it was amazing. That was my favorite part! Shan is someone I have enjoyed watching on YouTube for many reasons, but this book made the 1 reason as clear as day! She does not beat around the bush, point you in a bad direction, or spare your feelings.
Go find you some! You deserve it! View 1 comment. Jul 21, Leonicka rated it it was amazing Shelves: diverseadultcanadianself-help. I've followed Shan's work for years so I knew I liked her style and approach. I was most surprised by how much she still could teach me!
I read the book in a single afternoon and will definitely go back to do the program at my own pace to see if I can replicate the stellar her group of women had. Aug 06, Carly rated it it was ok. I really wanted to like this book, but it fell flat for me. Reading it was honestly like watching a movie, when the trailer has already shown you all the best parts.

The crazy feminist side of me bristled a little at the idea of reading a book about dating, but the great thing is that this is actually way more than just a book about dating. Or they waste a lot of time and heartbreak trying to figure it out.

Defo gave me food for thought to share with my therapist and get me on to the right path for change. Now we just need a version for men to work through their issues and our world will be a little better.
Jul 25, Lineal rated it it was amazing. What I love about this book is how wholesome Shan Boody is in her advices. She doesn't have any rigid idea of gender and doesn't spend time on the pittiness of Cosmo-esque dating advices, like waiting to text people or playing hard to get. Also, she emphasizes the importance to set expectations Instead she advocates for embracing your boldest self and finding your way to seduce others.
She's a pioneer I hope more of us will follow to seduce first ourselves and then the people we chose to : Fina What I love about this book is how wholesome Shan Boody is in her advices. She's a pioneer I hope more of us will follow to seduce first ourselves and then the people we chose to : Finally, the writing's is much better than in self-help books and definitely doesn't feel stretched, if anything I wish the book would be longer!
Keep up the good work and I hope I get the chance to meet you one day! May 13, Daniella rated it really liked it. Actually going to reread this one to get the full picture. But wow this was juicy and so insightful. Shannon did a fantastic job researching and thoroughly conducting an experiment.
Aug 03, Valerie rated it really liked it. I'll preface this by saying I've been following the author, Shannon Boodram aka Shan Boody, online for several years so I'm definitely not an unbiased reader.
Additionally, I started this book about a month after starting a new ish relationship so it felt like a low stakes investment of my time on the specific subject matter. Even with these caveats in mind, what I enjoyed most about this was though it is centered on dating, many of the concepts shared in The Game of Desire are absolutely appli I'll preface this by saying I've been following the author, Shannon Boodram aka Shan Boody, online for several years so I'm definitely not an unbiased reader.
Even with these caveats in mind, what I enjoyed most about this was though it is centered on dating, many of the concepts shared in The Game of Desire are absolutely applicable to connecting with humans in general.
Throughout the book, Boodram shares many hypotheses and findings in a format that's easy to grasp while also being entertaining to follow along with, an attribute helped a lot by the parameters under which this longterm experiment occurred. You get to know women going through the process of putting her theories into practice which adds a "real life" element to the read. I definitely wouldn't consider myself someone who dates a lot mostly by choicebut reading this book made it sound much more enjoyable than the stories I've heard from many of my more active friends and made me much more interested in doing so than I ever had been before.
If you're feeling disappointed, disheartened, or discouraged by the idea of dating, this book could be just the remedy you need. And even if you're not, it's still an entertaining read to through. Sep 02, Tiara Giles rated it it was amazing.
