Men Are Like Fish offers women a fresh approach on how to capture the love of their dreams by understanding the true nature of men. With the aid of an innovative fishing metaphor, this clever analogy clearly illustrates the essence of finding, attracting, getting, keeping and enjoying a whopper of a romance. Finally, here is a book to help women hook up with the right man and land him safely in the net of a committed and compelling love relationship.

"The joy of the relationship is in appreciating the whole process", Nakamoto insists. His book aims at not only detailing each step of the process but also at putting the playfulness and passion back into it. Men Are Like Fish is ideal for any woman who wants to make her never-ending journey on the path to love simpler, wiser and more fun.
