LOS ANGELES, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Best Dating Book Ever" by filmmaker-turned-author John A.Reiss is now available in an eBook format on Amazon and iTunes, and as a graphic PDF on The micro-book is a candid and concise approach to help in uncomfortable first encounters with potential partners and provides easy conversation techniques and real-life anecdotes.

"A person decides very quickly if they are into someone or not, possibly in the first few seconds of meeting them," Reiss said. "So I developed a concept that I call 'First Words Matter' because I wanted to offer my readers practical help and give them the confidence to strike up a conversation."

The 24-page book is a fun, easy read full of useful suggestions on how to turn a 30-second encounter into a 30-minute conversation and a possible relationship. It comes from a unique and very-real male perspective and is based on Reiss' own experiences as a divorced father-of-two living in Venice, California.

The book is intended for both men and women who want to make a meaningful connection when they meet someone they like in a setting like a first date, a bar or a party. Reiss uses a light, accessible style with funny and sometimes raw stories he collected while working as a video editor and during his travels to more than 40 countries.
