Former director of women's programs at UC Berkeley, Page now conducts singles workshops for both sexes. Men and women who want permanent partners will benefit from her ""10 strategies that will change your love life forever,'' as set forth in this engaging guide. The advice is illustrated by case histories of Page's clients, whose progress toward emotional fulfillment is described in their own words. Also detailed are stories of failed relationships and their causes. Each chapter contains an experiment designed to teach readers why they may be losing at love by clinging to partners who won't commit themselves; rejecting or showing ambivalence to promising mates, etc. The primary lesson to be gleaned here is that choosing a mate for life means knowing yourself first and recognizing a person with similar standards; not settling for less. An appendix gives tips on running a singles support group. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; first serial to Cosmopolitan, Self and Glamour; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.
