A guided questionnaire to help understand ourselves and our romantic relationships more clearly.
Most questionnaires are happy to be a bit of fun; this one sets out to be both entertaining and, more importantly, useful – offering us nothing less than a guide to the comforting and supportive relationships we long for.
With online apps taking over the dating game, it has never been more crucial to know the rules.
Through a series of pertinent questions, it reveals our distinctive style of loving, what our strengths and weaknesses are with partners and how we might secure genuine fulfillment going forward.
As we work through the questionnaire and its accompanying essays, writing the answers in a notebook, we discover the many reasons why relationships go wrong – and how they might do so far less often in the future. The book considers the role of self-hatred, the influence of childhood, the importance of vulnerability, the appeal of unavailable people and the best way to overcome patterns of self-doubt and unhealthy attachment.
Our minds are such confusing places, even the most thoughtful among us can fail to know central things about how we behave in relationships. This questionnaire will help us to understand ourselves more clearly – and so set us free to discover the love we deserve.

Absolutely loved paging through this book! So much to think about and enjoyed learning more about myself through the process I know others will as well.
"How Ready Are You For Love?" is a fantastic guided questionnaire that offers readers a unique opportunity to gain deeper insights into themselves and their romantic relationships. As I worked my way through the book, I found myself thoroughly engaged and entertained by the thought-provoking questions it posed. By the time I'd answered the questions, added up my answers and reached the conclusion, I felt like I had a much clearer understanding of myself and a heightened awareness of what I seek in a relationship.
Very interesting. Gave me some new insights in my own love life. A lot of thought provoking questions, it really makes you engage with the book. Gives you more self awareness.
Wow! this book was like a slap on my face. So many hard hitting realization. Highlighted a lot. I wish I had read this book way sooner in life. Especially in my early twenties. Definitely a recommended read for single people out there. It was so good that I read the book in a day. The book is also a short read but requires introspection and work in the future. Thanks to NetGalley for and The School of Life for letting me read the early edition.
A fascinating book. Many thought-provoking questions are not only about love but also about life. I like the argument for every question. I'm not really looking into the result at the end, rather than that, I enjoy devouring every single question and getting insight for maintaining relationships better.
Thank you, NetGalley and The School of Life for providing digital ARC for honest review.
This book struck me like a powerful wake-up call, delivering a series of hard-hitting realizations that left a lasting impact. I found myself reaching for the highlighter frequently, marking passages that resonated deeply. Reflecting on its profound insights, I couldn't help but wish I had encountered this book much earlier in life, especially in my early twenties.
Highly recommended for individuals navigating the single life, the book proved to be a fascinating read. It transcends the realm of love, delving into broader questions about life itself. Each thought-provoking question presented in the book, accompanied by compelling arguments, became a source of enlightenment for me. Rather than fixating on the final results, I revelled in the process of devouring every question and gaining valuable insights to enhance my approach to relationships.
The book's appeal lies not only in its recommendations but also in the thorough exploration of each question. It serves as a guide for those seeking a deeper understanding of relationship dynamics, prompting introspection and offering a roadmap for building and maintaining meaningful connections. Overall, a captivating and thought-provoking journey that extends beyond the realm of romance, making it a valuable resource for personal growth and relationship enrichment.
The E-Book could be improved and more user-friendly, such as links to the chapters, no significant gaps between words and a cover for the book would be better. It is very document-like instead of a book. A star has been deducted because of this.
The book cover is eye-catching and appealing and would spark my interest if in a bookshop. Thank you to the author, publisher and Netgalley for this ARC.
