I saw the movie first then read this book and I must say that I enjoyed the movie more than this but this book also had it's difference from the movie that sets it apart.

A waste of time, I guess. The movie was much better.

Dies ist ein Buch mit vielen Illustrationen und wenig Text, und daher konnten bei einer Bookcrossing Ladies Night gleich mehrere der anwesenden Damen das Büchlein "lesen". Die Ratschläge, die dort gegeben werden, sind nicht wirklich erleuchtend. Ich frage mich, wie überhaupt jmd für dieses Buch den vollen Preis bezahlt hat. Mit dem Film hat es jedenfalls außer dem Titel nicht viel zu tun.

This book should be given to every 15 year old girl in the world. It would save us all from being "that girl". I have sent this to every one of my single girlfriends any time they even remotely resembled this story. And occasionally I am forced to remind myself that we can all lose our way and slip into being "THAT GIRL". Ugh. It is funny, because it is true. Sigh.

I read the book because i liked the movie. But it was a let-down . Though i was impressed by the pictorial style of telling(It was actually very funny), the book was a series of dont-do principles.Obviously the book didnt have a central story which i generally expect. Watch the movie instead of the book.

It was a quick read. It was a child-like written book with stick-people in crayons. I thought of the Dummies books, but this is much easier to read hilarious at times too. I also watched the movie of which followed most of the actions in the movie entitled, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.

This was about a 10 minute read. There is one sentence, with a stick figure drawing, on each page. It's funny enough, but if you've seen the movie they made based off this book, you already have the basic idea.

My apartment has an excellent shelf of discarded books in the laundry room.

A fun, fast-reading match-figure pictorial. Nevertheless I wouldn't read it when riding the subway in fear of looking like an idiot.

Well, duh! I think this book is hilarious! Perfect gift for anyone who struggles with how much is too much when dating!
