Author of more than 20 self-help books and the host of TV's Los misterios de la vida (The Mysteries of Life), Russ expands his theory of ""twin souls"" in this New Age guide to finding the perfect mate. Russ encourages readers to wait for their ideal partner rather than trying to change someone they already know. ""Life is too sweet to waste it chasing after someone who isn't really interested in you,"" he advises. Addressed to both men and women, the book provides instructions on how to ""materialize"" the mate of your dreams by meditating, how to develop ""mind power,"" how to establish a mental link with your perfect mate, and how to shore up your self-esteem. ""The universe will always reorganize itself to accommodate your vision of reality!"" Russ says, so focusing on your image of the ideal partner is enough to make him or her appear. Fans of New Age literature may find comfort in these theories, but readers looking for more practical advice will be dissuaded by Russ's emphasis on the mind's power and by his tangential asides about topics such as diet and wardrobe choice.
