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"?

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.
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.
