Face it. Your girlfriends can tell you what you need to know about just about everything...except men. For that, you need comedian and "Essence" columnist Finesse Mitchell.

Eager to help his sistas out and show them how to avoid the types of men who have left them baffled, blue, or just plain bitter, Mitchell tells the truth, whether it's good, bad, or downright despicable.

Pretty interesting book. Much better than the Steve Harvey one. I don't believe every man is the same, and this book confirmed it for me. I think Harvey's book misses the point that everyone isn't the same.

Recommends it for: women who are looking for Mr. Right
I enjoyed this book. I read it from beginning to end. It took me quite a few months to get thru it because I didn't feel as if I needed to read it until I decided I WANTED to be in a relationship. At that point, I began reading it faithfully everyday. He is funny and has a lot of jokes in there. He even mentions my friend's name from Hell Date Keedar. I'm not sure if Keedar knows he was in this book, but I let him know. They are frat brothers. Anyways, this is a good informational book. ...more

I read this book the same time that I was reading the Steve Harvey book just to compare what the guys have to say and its pretty much the same across the board. One thing that I did notice is that Finesse philosophy on giving it up is that we are adults and there probably isn't a wait time, while steve says to at least allow 90 days before you do. So who's right on this? Either way, it was a nice book to read. It was funny in spots as well.

Sorry, Finesse. Felt like I had to read this one since the inside cover is signed with "Erica, thanks for hanging with me. Finesse M." He's a good friend (at least I pretend like he is). Anyway, I was in trouble from the beginning since I'm not exactly a "sista" as indicated in the title. However, there wasn't any great insight in the book, nor was it that entertaining. Stick to stand-up, my man.

Very amusing and very witty, but all-in-all what it dictates is oh-so-true!

Apparently my take on dating and mating is remarkably the same as "A Brother's." Funny book.
