'Witty, direct ...and scarily accurate.' Australian Women's Weekly 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! Hint- Turn this book over. See? ZoU Foster Blake, 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. 'Serious moments provide dating gems but along the way there are loads of giggles.' Sun-Herald
Hamish Blake (Author) 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 and podcast Hamish and Andy, has done a few things on television, and plans to learn how to make realistic old fake treasure maps in his later life so he can leave them hidden in walls to confuse future generations. His second greatest achievement in life is convincing Zoe to let him write on her book, and his first greatest achievement is somehow getting Zoe to marry him. He is very happy. Zoe Foster Blake (Author) ZoU Foster Blake enjoys writing her biography because she can write things like, 'The literary world was shocked when Foster Blake was controversially awarded the Man Booker prize for the third time', despite the fact that this is patently untrue. Things that are true include a decade of journalism writing for titles such as Cosmopolitan, Harper's BAZAAR and Sunday Style, as well as being the founder of all-natural Australian skin care line, Go-To. ZoU has written four novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field, The Younger Man and The Wrong Girl; a dating and relationship book, Textbook Romance, written in conjunction with Hamish Blake; and Amazinger Face, a collection of her best beauty tips and tricks. She lives in Springfield with her husband, Homer, and her three children, Maggie, Lisa and Bart.
