A Poignant and Powerful Book That Helps Singles Successfully Date in the New Millennium

New York, NY – February 5, 2007. If you are one of the millions of single, dating, separated or divorced women living in America, you have probably wondered from time to time what’s really going on in the minds of men and why you can’t ever seem to find the ‘right’ one. You may have joined a dating website, gone to a speed dating, or meet and greet event. Maybe you have even read a book to understand dating and men. Perhaps you are dating right now or seeking to get out of a relationship and begin anew. Most likely you are probably tired of the drama, games, confusion and lies that often come with the dating process.

In Dating Games-(A Brotha Speaks Up) Volume 1, a new book by speaker, author, life and dating consultant Sumumba Sobukwe, you will learn what men really think about dating and relationships. This book seeks not only to help you understand men but also how to date more effectively by avoiding the many uncertainties, and games that usually accompany dating. This book addresses all of these issues from African-American male perspective.

Dating Games first explores the life and dating experiences of Sobukwe and then the tragic marriage of his late mother. The book then takes on the thought process and ways that men go about dating and how men in general and Black men in particular view the ‘dating scene’, what makes men ‘tick’ and why they do what they do in relationships. A central theme of the book includes strategies to spot and avoid the common traps that result in negative dating experiences as well as to establish effective strategies to engage men and find where the ‘good’ ones are. The book concludes with a new life plan that will ultimately lead to healthy dating and relationships, and then real love.

I have been reading his dating columns and blogs for a couple of years now and his book does not disappoint, it is an excellent dating guide for both men and women who are seeking how to date better and find real love.

A quote from Sumumba Sobukwe book.. They identify first and foremost with their lower 'head' rather than the one between their shoulders.... The purpose of growing UP as a man and evolving should mean that we begin to learn how to transcend and NOT 'move' from our 'lower animal' nature but if we don't study, become more aware or have a positive purpose on this earth we stay stuck in 'animal' mode. What makes us different from our 'furry' and not so 'furry' friends on four legs is our spirit which we have the ability to cultivate and build ((this is what growth and evolution means)) and growth and evolving is what a RELATIONSHIP is supposed to be about.


Thank you my brother for this powerful book.
