Widely-loved sex and relationship columnist Samantha Brett is back with her new book, The Catch. Don’t fear the title; this isn’t about chasing frantically after someone who is considered ‘The Catch’. Rather, it’s about ensuring that you are one yourself.
Brett defines The Catch as ‘the ultimate single girl who knows her worth, doesn’t settle for less and doesn’t get caught up in the whirlwind of the dating game’. She interviewed a multitude of men to discover their take on women and what they consider to be a Catch, with some eye opening results.
The insights provided are certainly useful, but the core of the book is not about becoming what men want. The real focus is on how a single woman can nurture feelings of personal empowerment and confidence, with an unshakeable sense of what they deserve. These central messages are where the books’ greatest merit lies, and coupled with Brett’s authoritative but upbeat tone The Catch is a highly enjoyable read.
Another standout aspect is the list of tips for avoiding common traps of the dating game. Even the most seasoned singletons will learn a thing or two, and for these alone, The Catch is the book every single girl needs in her handbag.
