I so wish I had one of these when I was growing up. I dated so many dolts and some great guys...I just didn't see the difference. A lot of heartache could have been passed by.
So I Went Out With This Guy Last Night.... is a wonderful, insightful and very useful book. It has helped me to see many things in my life in a new light. I recommend it to any young woman to help guide her through the hectic world of dating!
"This is a really wonderful book. I am hoping all my nieces will be smart enough to read and use this journal!"
"Your concept and capture of the need for knowledge and support for girls is amazing, and your gentle non-preachy non-threatening approach is just what they need. I work with young people every day, and see such a benefit from this book. I have already recommended it to several friends, and will continue to do so."
"What makes the journal so useful... are the questions (the) snapshot pages ask"
"What (Higham) has provided in his journal is a way to ask the right reflective questions. The questions help girls (think about) character... and ultimately, help them find a man of character who shares their values."
