"This book is a hilarious romp of true life (unfortunately). Read it and prepare for your next date."—James Van Praagh, New York Times bestselling author, Talking to Heaven

"Every story is the truth and every truthful moment is a hilarious journey! It's as if you're listening to your best friend at a coffee shop and watching a stand—up take command of the stage. You won't be disappointed as you travel this refreshingly funny road of 'horrible dates!'"—Debra Wilson, actress/comedian, MADtv

"Eddie's book is an emotional catharsis for anyone who has ever come home from one horrible date and wondered, What the hell was that? This book is laugh–out–loud hilarious and extremely well written."—Chad Allen, writer, producer, actor, activist

What I have to tell you in this book will seem almost unreal. But you are going to have to keep reminding yourself that these are actual real dates.

  • For everyone who can empathize and knows what it's like to be on at lease one crappy date, this book is for you.
  • For everyone who wants that dinner back or sat through a boring, horrible movie only to determine that the person you were with was a complete and utter tsunami, this book is for you.

For everyone else, buckle your seat belt and turn off your phone, because a massive car wreck is about to begin.

I like this book because it is easy to move from one story to another. Short and simple. However, that said, some of the so-called dates were not really qualified to be considered as dates. And some were not that horrible. I thought Danny was a good catch. And a few of them were alright. Read full review

Although I found this book amusing, the author came across as a fussy, intolerant ass****. All through the book, it remained obvious why the author remained single. I think therapy might be in order. I still found it entertaining, however the writing was much to be desired. I read it via a library account, and would have be more disappointed if I had paid money. The author was hypocritical and came across as a gold digger. Bit of a princess. Annoying. Very unlikable. I have a feeling his worst dates could have had a good story of their own. Please don't waste your money.
