Wow...I just finished reading this book, and it was fantastic! "Here's To My Lady (A Gentle-Man She Has -- Or Not?)" by Author Gene T. Reed will assist men in knowing exactly what a "lady" wants. A lady like myself appreciates a man who knows how to respect and treat her like a delicate flower. My favorite chapter in this book is Chapter 4, "Create a Romance for the Lady of Your Dreams." Romance is so important in the beginning and throughout the relationship. As Gene brought out in his book, every lady is different so when it comes to romance, it is imperative that you find out what pleases her individually. Romancing your lady can be extravagant or it can be simple but charming. Gene had many responses to his online survey prior to writing his book. One of Gene's respondents wrote, "a romantic gentleman is one who is unselfish and finds all the little things in your life that brings you joy, and adds his own touch so that he also finds joy in doing those thing for you." Romancing your lady does not have to be expensive. Jewelry, carriage and limousine rides, taking her on a cruise, etc. are always special. However, it's the little things as brought out in his book that will reach her on a much intimate level. You can give her roses, send her a card, write a heartfelt letter/email, or call her just to say, "I love you". Also read her a poem that you wrote for her, compliment her, take her walking on the beach at night, open her car door, allow her to enter a room first, notice if she changes her hair or wears a new outfit, listen to her while she is talking, and so on. Men should read this book as a guide to learning how to treat a lady. This book would make an excellent gift. I definitely give this book "two thumbs up!" Here's to YOU Gene for writing it and being such a gentleman!
