    Although La La spoke mostly from her own personal experience, most of the things she mentioned in this book should have been advice instilled in every woman at an early age in life. She mentions how important it is to have self-respect and set valuable standards for yourself. She had also touched base on a savvy ways to handle certain situations in a relationship.

She mentions how important it is to have self-respect and set valuable standards for yourself. She had also touched base on a savvy ways to handle certain situations in a relationship. I love the way she incorporated the rules of basketball into each chapter and changing it up to point out particular dating and life issues by offering either her own personal advice or the advice of her parents or grandmother. This was truly an enjoyable read, fresh and enlightening for women who's real about being true to themselves and their relationship with their man. I see this book as the female version of Think Like A Man...but with a more personal touch.

    A delightful true story of La La Anthony on her success in radio, TV, entrepreneur and wife to NBA Star Carmelo Anthony. She also tells of having a son and the many relationships with coworkers (both male and female), and girlfriends but most importantly her relationship with her husband. She is well grounded and has taken some valuable life lessons from her Mom, Dad and stepdad. It was rewarding to see how she relates to people in a way that she does not bond with them by their wealth but as a A delightful true story of La La Anthony on her success in radio, TV, entrepreneur and wife to NBA Star Carmelo Anthony.

I would have liked for her to expound more on if she had a relationship with God as I read her book it almost seems like she does as she treats people the way she would want to be treated with is the "Golden Rule"

    This was a good read. La La outlines everything we already know but she does it in a way that actually connects. I’ve heard so many times how one needs to love oneself first, how men need something to chase etc. but it never really sank in. La La makes it relatable with her own life examples and the examples of her friends. While the advice itself is something that women have all heard before, La La says it in a way that feels more genuine and from the heart based on her experiences and not just This was a good read.

I feel the book helped me realise in hindsight where past relationships went wrong, where I was holding on too tightly, and how to change that.

    Very interesting how an author can use their own life experience to provide guidance to the mass on basic things... Really good and easy read.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked how she incorporated basketball terminology into the beginning of the chapters. Any woman, regardless of relationship status should read this book. A good amount of it is common sense, however, there's nothing wrong with a refresher. She encourages women to find out who they truly are and know themselves before trying to pursue a relationship. There are many relationship books in existence, however, many don't tell you to find and know yourself. Also, I really enjoyed reading this book.

    This was book about finding the love of your life while Lala Anthony give you a sneak peek of her own life. It will make you reflect and look inward at some of the choices that you have made. Were they mistakes? Or were the right choice? At the end, you will find yourself figuring out what you will do better in the future.

Comparing the game of basketball to the game of love, Lala provides readers with what she believes to be the key to finding love and happiness. While it took me quite some time to finish this read, I can say I was pleased. There weren't any new tips or tricks given but I appreciated Lala giving us her perspective. It appeared 100% real and genuine. The information wasn't forced and she didn't have a "no-it-all" tone in this book. She gave us her opinions based on her experiences as well as experiences of others that she shared with us. While Lala is somewhat public, having a show on VH1, there were many things we did not know especially about her relationship with Carmelo so it was nice that she gave us a some insight. I have a good number of highlights throughout the book and have even applied some suggestions and tips to my own relationship. After I finished reading The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness, I tried her "60 day relationship challenge" which she has a version for those in relationships as well as one for singles. During this relationship challenge you pick something you would like to work on, a flaw or area you know you could be better at where your relationship is concerned, and you work to improve it. You do not tell your partner about it, you just do it. The relationship challenge for singles focuses on you as an individual. You spend those sixty days "NOT looking, thinking, or trying to get a man". Use that time to be the woman you want to be. Set a reasonable goal/ goals and use that time to work towards it. I rated this book 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend to any reader single and taken, who enjoy self-help, non-fiction, relationship, and romance books.

    Wanting to get a taste for young women's attitudes to relationships I decided to read this book written by an American radio and TV presenter. Openly declares her lack of any credentials from the start "I'm not a relationship expert" - but quite frankly who is? However, she bases her advice on her own experiences and wow - what a woman with her head screwed on and her feet firmly grounded even with celebrity status and beautiful looks. Let your daughters read this.

Openly declares her lack of any credentials from the start "I'm not a relationship expert" - but quite frankly who is? However, she bases her advice on her own experiences and wow - what a woman with her head screwed on and her feet firmly grounded even with celebrity status and beautiful looks. Let your daughters read this. "We determine how a man will treat us". "Women lose when we don't view other women as members of our team" "You should establish that you're worthy of respect and that you expect to be treated with respect. Men respect women who respect themselves" At a time when I worry deeply about the impact of pornography on young people's expectations of relationships and the objectification of the female body I find this book a breath of fresh air.

    I have to admit that I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was PLEASANTLY surprised with this book! Even though it is meant to be a book on love/relationship advice, it reads like a lighthearted biography in which you feel like La La is an old girlfriend you're catching up with over happy hour drinks. I loved the conversational aspect of the writing. It made it easy to read, hard to put down, and left me with a smile after turning the last page.

    My best friend and I read this book at the exact same time states away from each other and I remember once I finished it I was like "this was a pretty fun read." I didn't get the notion that she was being full of herself. We know who she is we know who she's married to we know who her friends are. If I wrote this type of book I'd more than likely throw the names of my friends in there as well so she can't be faulted just because hers happen to be celebs.

    For me the book was common sense, but still a good read none the less if you just want/need to hear some sound advice. She prefaces the book by saying she's not a relationship expert so if you don't like what she has to say keep it moving, but she is speaking from her personal experiences. I'm not in to reality tv and never had a bad opinion of her, but after reading the book I do have a new found respect for her.

    I thought it gave a little insight into Lala and Carmelo's relationship, but the relationship advice here is pretty basic (have your own life outside of the relationship, love yourself first, etc.). I feel like Lala held back a lot in her present relationship (which I can understand) and focused more on relationships she had in college, which the average reader probably doesn't care about. She is in a high-profile relationship with an NBA player - how they've managed to stay together all these y I thought it gave a little insight into Lala and Carmelo's relationship, but the relationship advice here is pretty basic (have your own life outside of the relationship, love yourself first, etc.).

    I think the titles are clever for basketball, but since that's her husband's profession, maybe she should have chosen a theme related to music or general entertainment as that is what she is more closely affiliated and how she became famous. It's good that she said some things differently with Melo than she advises (e.g., her long engagement and pre-marital baby). Sometimes topics jumped back and forth and that made it hard to follow some of her stories.

    La La surprised me with her candid honesty and her willingness to keep it real about love, sex and happiness (as she shared some really challenging times with the reader) that allowed you to see her vulnerabilities, insecurities and ultimate growth. I really enjoyed how La La was able to drizzle some real tidbits of wisdom for women about having your own and loving yourself fully - despite your status (i.e., single, divorced or married).

    Overall, her books was good. It provided relationship advice to women out there who are seeking some thoughts about how to get a good man and how to be in a good relationship. Most of her advice are pretty common sense but I guess there are still others out there who are in a complicated relationship. I pretty much read this book because I liked Lala since her 92.3 the beat days. She's come a long way. Overall, her books was good.

    Well written book containing excellent dating advice. A negative aspect of the book is her tendency to switch from sounding humble to a bit full of herself. I'm not entirely sure why she felt the need to name drop a lot of celebrities that weren't crucial to her stories, but in fairness, maybe she was writing those parts to publicly compliment her friends.

    I love this book This book is inspirational. Lala Anthony speaks to many when she talks about the experiences she had faced in her life. I am very big on sports and I love how she interpret her life as a basketball wife a mother and a television personnel all in one book. I will definitely recommend this book to everyone. this book is a must read

    I loved this book because it reinforced little life mantras about life, love, friendship and career. I didn't love that a lot of the advice given was advice that the author didn't personally adhere to ... so the legitimacy faded as the book progressed. However, it satisfied our curiosity on all things celebrity. There was also a very touching story about her friendship with Kimmy K.

    The Power Playbook was better. In this book, the advice is sound and her perspective is common, but there's a lot of repetition with the storytelling and it comes off as a disorganized thought process at times. Other than that, she says what most people believe but getting the info from her may be easier than from people in your real life. The Power Playbook was better.

    Precise and to the point. This book gives valid points on relationships not just with men, but with family and friends as well. I enjoyed reading this book. It allowed me to experience her life and how she views life and relationships.

    I think La La Anthony is just lucky in finding the right one. If you follow her experience/advice, you might easily get into disaster in relationship/marriage, e.g., living long time(6 years) together and had a baby before tying the knot. A little show-off, but in a understanding manner.
