Very rarely, I'm early when meeting a friend at a book store for some browsing, gossiping and coffee. Recently, I found that I was early so off I went to the self-help section to peruse and this book is the one I pulled off the shelf. I got through nearly the entire book due to the fact my friend was a bit late. When my friend came I showed her some parts of the book that were note worthy, we chatted about it, then I popped the book back on the shelf and off we went.

Now you probably see why I a

This was the stupidest dating book I've ever read. My roommate picked this up at a bookstore and we had a good laugh reading through these chapters together. This guy speaks as though he's never even met a woman, let alone knows how they think. To make matters worse, he doesn't seem to understand how men think either.

The funniest thing about this book is the fact that he's constantly declaring a point and then arguing against his own point later on in the chapter or chapters to follow. For examp

Good usefull book i though. I liked the insight into mens heads about what they think about women and how different men go for different women.

It is a helpful book if you are activitly looking for a guy and are loosing hope. It boosts your confidence in finding someone.

The internet profile writing advise was good as well, basically saying to be honest and up front! It got a bit repetative towards the end but overall i enjoyed this book.

It was a good read. I got some useful information about the male mind and what steps I can take to be pro-active in my manifestation of Mr. Right. I think it would be very eye-opening for a traditional woman, and would make a difference, so I would recommend it to someone who seems to have no idea what/how men think!

Recommends it for: Women
Really good tips and ideas on putting yourself out there and read/attract men better. Was going great until it digressed into a book about online dating. It's like he said, "Forget everything I just taught you, you'll never get to use it! Just date online, that's the ONLY way you'll really meet someone." I say, "Meh".

This is written from a male perspective and suggests safe venues to hang out and look for "Mr. Right". The only thing I'm weary of is the chapter that suggests to search online for a man. I've tried it and I'm not crazy about that method.
