"More Than a Match" explores the compatibility factor, demystifying the science behind matchmaking and giving you the tools you need to find the love you want. You ll learn how to apply the specifics of good compatibility to a prospective date or mate, as well as how to break things off when you find yourself in the wrong relationship.
