I hate, hate this book, but in fairness to the authors, the book still gets 5 stars. Why? Because this book has a ton of information that single women (and women in less-than-committed relationships) need to know. The authors paint an ugly portrait of your average yuppie single man, but for the most part these things are true. As a single woman in her late 20s who has been inexplicably brushed off by too many men, I purchased this book out of desperation: what the hell am I doing "wrong"?

Did anything good come out of the 90s? Because this book surely wasn't one of them. Where do I start?! It's written by three 90s New Yorkers: a lawyer, an accountant and a surgeon. That's enough already to start ringing alarm bells. They're basically the epitome and distillation of every self-entitled male 'professional' prick you've ever encountered. And because of this, they consider themselves over-qualified to provide advice to women on 'how to make a man yours'. The answer: accept that your ...more

i'm sorry guys but i don't think ill ever finnish reading this book god i thought reading phillipa gregory was a huge chore but this is hard work.i mean it makes what she writes sound like a walk through a freash medow.well i guess there's always that one book you won't ever read

Wow. The book is somewhat "dated" in that it looks to have been written in the 90's, but the overall content was: shocking, enlightening, discouraging, sad, and depressing.

By the time I was finished reading the book, I couldn't help but think men were: babies, animals, users, pathetic, insecure and immature.

What I learned:

Men's egos have to be closely stroked on a regular basis. They need to be told they chose a good restaurant and the food was good. They need to be told they look nice, etc News

It's like guiding book .. In my opinion It's no. 1 among those kind if books that talk and relate to the same subject .. It's direct and straight to the point ..Will let u know frankly and clearly who is Mr Right and who is Mr wrong clear ..So u cut it short from the start .. Or even not to be fooled anymore .. It will train u to listen to ur intuition voice .

From a woman's point of view and my own experience, this book is mostly true. While there are some exceptions to every rule, this book defines men and how they behave. Provides helpful insight to how interested a man is in a woman, among other do's and dont's.

I found this at a garage sale for a nickel and couldn't resist because of the title. It is an entertaining look at dating in the nineties but I wonder if things aren't a lot worse for the Tinder (?) generation. Anyway, I am pleased that my beau passed the tests and will not be dumped.

The authors provide a lot of valuable feedback, but don't read it if you are already bummed out about someone. I stopped on page 167 as I needed to read something more positive.
