The authors have created something which genuinely offers the 'inside scoop.' It is an absolute must-read for any man looking to Russia for a wife
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
The husband and wife team of Olga Maslova, a Russian psychologist, and English author Stuart J. Smith used their own experience of a successful cross-cultural romance to make the truth about Russian women available to all who seek Russian mates, while shattering the myths about "mail-order brides".
The tongue-in-cheek cover, which features a scantily-clad Russian woman climbing out of a packing box clutching her passport, has already caused some controversy among feminist groups and made the book's sales jump, thanks to the unsought publicity.
"The authors have created something which genuinely offers the 'inside scoop.' It is an absolute must-read for any man looking to Russia for a wife," wrote Jim Hanemaayer in the Mendeleyev Journal. Jim is also Russia Correspondent for USA Channel One and USA Columnist for Bolshoi (Большой) Magazine, Moscow.
The book corrects common misperceptions and enlightens men about what Russian women really want and how to woo them successfully. Issues including age differences, language barriers and how to deal with dishonest agencies are explored with candor and common sense. As are tips on traveling to Russia to meet potential brides and handling visa and residency issues. The final chapters offer practical advice on post-marital adaptation, overcoming cultural issues and maintaining a stable family.
Maslova and Smith have also set up a global internet advice forum for their readers and any who might be contemplating an international marriage. Its many hundreds of active members, expert advisors and experienced contributors from the US, Australia, Canada and the UK, can advise on any relevant issues that are not covered in the book.
The "Russian Bride Guide" is already being referred to as the Western man's "bible" on wooing Russian women. It is now available from http://www.RussianWomenBook.com and at major bookshops and e-retailers. ISBN 978-0-9556874-0-2
