Book Review #237
Don't Date Naked by Michael and Amy Smalley
Rating: two stars (out of four)

This book offered advice and solid truths to help you avoid dating pitfalls and while that was nice and all, I didn't agree with some of their principles.  I don't know if it is possible to date non-seriously, because then what would be the point?  If you are dating just to have a good time and don't think that the relationship will go anywhere why bother doing it at all?  What about the other person's feelings?  I also didn't like how often they referenced Joshua Harris.  If they wanted to write a dating book, go ahead and do it, don't litter your text with, "we agree with pretty much everything he said, but we would do it this way..." I thought that this book had some good points, but I didn't always see eye-to-eye with the authors.  I wouldn't recommend this book because I've read other books that I agree with more and hold in higher esteem.
