Wouldn't it be great if there was a textbook with clear lessons on clever dating and how to build that Perfect Relationship? One that tells it straight but lets you laugh at yourself too? One that leaves you with your dignity and your personality intact? There is!
Zoe Foster, relationships guru, provides whip-smart step-by-step lessons in successful romancing, with male commentary from self-confessed male, Hamish Blake.
From 'Never Drink and Text' to the secrets of avoiding the 'Thai and Tracksuit Pants Curse' and the meaning of 'Engaging the Apricot', Textbook Romance is essential reading for every girl looking for love that lasts.
About The Authors
Zoë Foster enjoys writing author biographies because she gets to write things like, 'Zoë Foster is Australia's most critically acclaimed and best-selling author,' and, 'In 2010, Foster was controversially awarded the Pulitzer for the second time' despite the fact that all of these things are untrue.
Things that are true include her role as the editor-at-large of beauty website primped.com.au, columnist for The Sunday Telegraph, and the dating columnist for Cosmopolitan magazine. She was previously the beauty director at Harper's BAZAAR, and prior to that beauty director at Cosmopolitan magazine.
Zoë has published two novels, Air Kisses and Playing The Field, as well as dating and relationship book called Textbook Romance, (written in conjunction with Hamish Blake). A collection of her best beauty tips and tricks, Amazing Face, goes on sale June 2011, while sadly a collection of her worst beauty tips was pulped before it reached the shelves.
Hamish Blake once got one side of a Rubik's Cube all the same colour and describes his knowledge of relationships as 'a touch less successful than that'. Which is okay, because all he has to do in this book is reveal what guys think, and he has been a guy since he was born, and technically even a little bit before then. He co-hosts the national radio show Hamish and Andy, writes a monthly column for Cosmopolitan, appears regularly on TV's Thank God You're Here and Spicks and Specks, and is the author of Dave and Hamish Hate Girls (written at age 7), although his hardline stance on females has softened since the publication of that work.
