The problem is that out of hundreds of entries in the book, I only ended up with 8 or 9 good ideas. Don't get me wrong - the author has the right attitude about romance. He doesn't like doing what everyone does; he realizes the importance of personalization, originality, variety, and fun. The philosophy of always, always thinking about the perfect ways to express your love is a very good one, and one which I think would benefit almost everyone. The author does come up with many creative and thoughtful ideas for gifts, activities, etc.
The big issue I have with this book is that I don't feel it suits those who already have the attitude that the author has. A great many of the ideas in this book were ones which I had already thought of and carried out before, and many of the remaining ideas were (I felt) a bit too everyday or cheesey. It doesn't take a whole lot of thought to come up with the idea of writing "I *heart* you" in the snow, for instance.
This book is a pretty good one for those who don't normally think about romance all that often but really want to become a romantic person. But what the average rating of five stars does not tell online shoppers is that it is simply NOT THAT GREAT.
Would I recommend this book? It depends on what kind of person you are. I STRONGLY recommend going to a bookstore and flipping through it before buying it here. I naively assumed without seeing the content that this book was indeed the best romance guide for me, and payed good money for a handful of tips. Don't make the same mistake. On a lighter note, I wish everyone happiness, and happy romancing. :)
I am a bit of a romance-aholic as I love to romance my sweetheart of 12 years.

I very much like the author's approach to romance and simplicity. Some of the best things in life cost very little or nothing. A walk on the beach or in the woods, relaxing massage, brunch in bed on Sunday morning, curling up together in front of a warm fire, working in the yard together, a quiet candlelight dinner, this type of quality time cannot be replaced with any amount of money. Believe me, if the ambiance is right, it will not matter whether the meal is expensive duck l'orange or relatively inexpensive spaghetti. Too many individuals have this preconceived notion of what romance should be and often those expectations are not even realistic. This book is filled with endless ways to keep the romance alive, and the wonderful part of all, is that each attempt to nurture and tend to the relationship, generally creates a stronger, more loving bond. If your relationship is fulfilling but you need a little spice in it (and spontaneous spice is, indeed, nice) this book should help, and if the relationship is showing signs of wear and lacks lustre, you definitely need the book. It is a book most deserving of a five star rating...and more!
This book is pretty good, and I would say that there's plenty of material to work with. But I found that many of the ideas are somewhat contrived, and would be hard to pull off without seeming sappy. Once these were weeded out, the number drops well below the "hundreds" in the title.
As a better choice, I'll recommend Vicki Lansky's book "101 Ways to Say 'I Love You'". It's more realistic, with many great ideas.
