9780060881115: DSI--Date Scene Investigation: The Diagnostic Manual of Dating Disorders

Are you a victim of a crime of the heart?
Is your relationship an unsolved mystery?

It's time to analyze the Dating DNA.

In this hilarious and helpful handbook, best-selling author Ian Kerner introduces us to the DSI team, a top-secret unit within the FBI (that's the Federal Bureau of Intimacy) whose sole mission is to investigate dating dilemmas and equip you with the skills you need so you're never again a dating victim.

Through humorous and engaging case studies, you'll read about boyfriends who might be gay, gamers who won't step up to the plate, and wimps who won't go down for the count. You'll meet Dating DUPEs (Desperately Under Pressure to Evaluate) and their antagonistic ARSEs (Anti-Relationship Suspect Examinees). You'll gain unprecedented access to previously classified relationship rap sheets: detailed reports that reveal interpersonal infractions, mating misdemeanors, and flirtatious felonies. You'll boldly go where no civilian has gone before as we apply the latest forensic tools to decipher complex dating data: From testing for SPARK (Sexual Potential and Romantic Kinship), to consulting with undercover agents in the MBU (Missing Boyfriends Unit), Kerner ventures above the law and beneath the covers.

Because in the end . . . the love life you save may be your own.

About the Author:

Ian Kerner, Ph.D., is a sex therapist and New York Times bestselling author of numerous books. He contributes regularly to Today and lives in New York City with his wife and two young sons.

From AudioFile:

Helping women recognize men who are not relationship material is Kerner's focus, and the subject matter is narrated with mind-numbing gravitas by the sex-expert author. However, what's useful is that hearing the men described one after the other allows the listener to see the entire male landscape more objectively. But, entertaining as it is, the material is almost entirely anecdotal and falls short of providing any organizing insights women can use when dealing with men's personality and emotional issues. The second complaint is the cutesy framing of this lesson as an investigative crime show with its overly serious narration and silly terms like "dating diagnostic" and "missing boyfriend unit." The artifice makes the program sound dumbed-down. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
