This book offers a cheap parallel between "Argentine tango" and life, and especially her life as a middle-aged female doctor in a specialty were there are many male physicians. I bought the book because I am an European woman who speaks Spanish, lives in the States and dances Argentine tango. What Potts dances/talks about is not really the sensual, culturally aware version of the dance (trust me, I've been to Buenos Aires, I have friends who live there, I speak the language) - but the theatrical, parodied version of the dance exported in the late 80s to American audiences. In brief, the book is narrow minded and simplistic and culturally ignorant - if you are a middle-aged lonely female in a profession with many males and you like ballroom dancing or tango fantasia, this book may have something for you, otherwise just invest the money in an actual Argentine tango lesson, you can build your own philosophy of couple dances as life, and have some fun/ make friends in the process!

"Tango: Lessons for Life" reads like a self-help book, providing a framework for a positive outlook on life. The author uses metaphors from her world, including her job as a urologist as well as her interest in Argentine tango. The chapter titles reveal much of the theme and content of the book: "The Embrace," "Do Not Anticipate," "Always Keep Your Heart in Front," and "Dance More, Talk Less." This book is pretty light on deep analysis of Argentine tango. Instead, it is closer to a self-help book with some metaphors and anecdotes drawn from her exposure to Argentine tango and her work in urology thrown into the mix. Argentine tango dancers who are not looking for a self-help book will be disappointed, but the writing and organization are good and provide some good motivational stories for those that enjoy that type of genre.

As a tango dancer myself I found the book quite easy to read and almost finished it in one session; it opened new insights into the dance spreading wisdom from dance examples to smart living outside tango combined with interesting biographical anecdotes of Dr. Potts.
