Molloy, author of the best-selling "Dress for Success" series, applies his statistical skills to the subject of finding a husband. He conducted focus groups, interviewed people coming out of marriage-license bureaus, and then crunched the numbers to extract information on first impressions, the stages of a relationship, marriage after 40, widowed and divorced men, and meeting online. Much of what he has to report is almost intuitive-e.g., doctors and lawyers usually don't think about getting hitched before 28. To boot, Molloy does not explicitly state how many focus groups and people he worked with and from whence he draws his conclusions, and he provides no charts or other bibliographic information about how his study was conducted. He does relate that he varied interviewers when he got what he perceived as skewed results. And he freely admits that there are always exceptions to the rule. Despite its faults, this is an interesting piece of pop science (with a grain or two of advice) that patrons will request owing to the author's reputation and the national publicity campaign planned. Recommended for large public libraries.-Margaret Cardwell, Christian Brothers Univ. Lib., Memphis Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
