“ لماذا يعشقُ الرجالُ العاهرات؟ : من ممسحة أحذية إلى فتاة أحلام , دليل المرأة للحفاظ على نفسها في العلاقة العاطفية “ .

تقول الكاتبة ان هذا العنوان الصادم ماهو إلا عنوان ساخر يصف ما تفكر فيه المرأة عندما تشعر بالاحتياج لرجل ما فتقدم له كل ما تعتقد انه يريده وإذ فجأة يتركها ليذهب إلى امرأة أخرى .. وأنها لا تقصد أبدا معناه الحرفي.

لن أتحدث عن محتوى الكتاب كاملا , فمحتواه على رغم صغره أكبر من أن يُناقش في مقالة واحدة , ولكن سأكتفي بمناقشة الفصل الثالث من الكتاب صاحب عنوان "The Candy Store" أو " محل ا

Bella Swan should have read this book!

I am not really into self-help books like this because I really don't give a damn about guys. Sure, guys are such fascinating creatures. Sometimes I want them. But most of the times, I just want them to leave me alone. And no, I am definitely NOT a man-hater, I told you, they fascinate me. But I just couldn't make myself give a damn on whether men I know think I'm a doormat or a dream girl. I have much better things to do than that. And if a guy doesn't li

Speaking of the book objectively: It contais a number of advices on pursuing something called "worthy man" or "good man". Such a man is romantic and cares for her potential partner, but is also childish, ego-oriented and selfish. He must be conducted by flattery and misconception. Many of the techniques showed in the book are going to work on a large number of males, in my opinion.

It is also of my opinion that the outcome of this book is disgusting. All the prescriptive and inductive methods on

I read this book because a friend suggested it and loaned it to me. I think this is a horrible book and I'll tell you why.

Most of the "men" described in this book are douchebags. Plain and simple. The author claims she got her information from actual men. Fine. I'm sure she did. But those men, if that is the type of information they gave her, are douchebags.

And, aren't we tired of dealing with douchebags by now? It's 2011 and I have self-respect. Too much self-respect to put up with a man who

This is the worst "self help" book I have ever read. The dumb fox theory completely negates the entire book. How are you going to prove you don't need a man around when you can't change a tire or lightbulb without him? RIDICULOUS! I'm not going to dumb myself down to make my boyfriend feel better about himself that's his insecurity issues to work on! This book basically teaches a woman how to play mind games and be passive agressive which in my opinion are NOT going to land you a healthy, long

Curiosity never killed anyone.


I read this book out of curiosity and for experimental purposes. I did it for science. Besides it was either this or 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen. R. Covey. I feel effective enough as I am right now. Should've gone with the effectiveness anyway.
So I spent the past few days learning about the bitch theory: How to be a bitch. The bitch lifestyle. What the bitch eats,

المراه نوعين :الكتاب مبني على عشرين قاعدة اساسية يجب ان تفهمها كل امراة
القاعدة الاولى:
كل شيء يلاحقه المرء يهرب منه.
فاذا كنت تلاحقين زوجك بالاتصالات والاسئلة والتودد الزائد غير المبرر فهو حتما سيهرب لانك تضعينه تحت ضغط كبير وتحرمينه من التحدي للفوز برضاك فانت تكافئينه بمناسبة وبغير مناسبه فلم عساه يسعى لرضاك؟؟

I felt compelled to write a review about this book because it changed the way I dated and most importantly changed the way I treated myself. This is one of the most influential self help books I have ever read and I have made all of my girlfriends read it. Sherri Argov is insightful and cuts through BS with her sword of truth. Yes the title is a bit much but you get the true meaning of the word bitch when you actually read the book. The underlying premise of the book is about having self respect ...more
The fact is, you're not supposed to read a book like this, let alone like it. When this book came recommended to me from a few members of a woman's group I belonged to at the time, skeptical wouldn't begin to describe what I thought. I mean, the title alone kind of wants to make you gag. Most men hate bitches, don't they? This book can't help you find, keep or get a man, right? Well, right. But I think that's the whole point of the book and possibly its beauty.

I remember once, one of my friends told me that she'd been in a Ndwah held by Dr. Sana Abed. And as Dr. Sana always concern with girls' issues, problems and relationships, she advised all the girls to read this book. To say the truth, I was shocked. How come someone like her recommends such a horribly entitled book?!! ……. But now after I read it, I figured out that she just made a very important recommendation and MARVELOUS as well.

6 stars! A 100% honest book... Definitely worth keeping!
I first picked up this book attracted by the intriguing title. So how does Sherry Argov define a bitch?

Bitch (n): A woman who won’t bang her head against the wall obsessing over someone else’s opinion— be it a man or anyone else in her life. She understands that if someone does not approve of her, it’s just one person’s opinion; therefore, it’s of no real importance. She doesn't try to live up to anyone else’s standards— only her own.

I read this book several years ago when I was younger and not so smart. At the time I had been dating someone for about 6 months without the title or commitment and unfortunately, I was the girl in this book. A few months later I got tired of the bs and turned into the " bitch" that this book tells you to be, not because I did it intentionally, but because I just didn't care anymore. And guess what, IT WORKED! he did a 180 and was the one chasing and wanting the commitment. I gave it a shot but ...more

I picked up a used copy of this book as a gag gift, and my fascination with the intensive note-taking and underlining the previous owner had done in the copy lead me to read a good chunk of this book.
Of what I read the basic concepts are acceptable enough; women should value their dignity and not allow their suitors to take advantage of them. However, the idea that a woman with a backbone is a "bitch", and the idea that women must be manipulative to gain fair treatment in a relationship (as de

This book is great advice for any women are are pushovers. I think it's geared for those women, so that's why the book's content can seem so extreme and harsh. But before people pass judement on the book, the author Sherry Argov, points out from the beginning what she really means by the work 'Bitch' within the content of her book. She says NO woman should be what most people picture when they think of a bitch: abrassive, bad attitude, ungrateful, mean, etc... What Sherry means by the word bitch ...more

This book in my opinion Really sucks.
beacuse I believe anyone strategizing sooo much to not be treated like a "door mat" needs advice on self steem NOT on how to trick men.
In my opinion you are trying to fix something that is not the root of the problem.

Ok, first of all, I know you're reading this and rolling your eyes!!! (hi Jafar, hi Rustam!) It was a gag gift I got from my friend for my birthday so I gave it a whirl while I was at the gym- and finished it in a snap. It's actually pretty good! Bitch isn't really "bitch" in the traditional sense of the word. Basically her point is that women should have their own lives going on and that that's more attractive to men.

Although this book contains some good advice, handy tips and plenty of focus on self-worth, it has one fault that prevents it from covering all bases. The author's theories all work on the premise of traditional gender roles. There is a lot of focus on the alpha male stereotype, and throughout the book the idea that all women have the same goals in a relationship is prevalent.

Not everybody fits into the author's polar presentations of male and female. She draws a lot from anecdotal evidence, an

Wow, where do I start...I would never have read this book just because of the horrible title. However, I'm glad Marsha explained the title so that I could get by the "horrible" name thing I was dealing with. This book gave me a little insight to why nice women like myself sometimes finish last and can't seem to get a nice guy in line to "do right"...well, since right is a matter of perception and interpretation I better say for a man to treat her like the queen that she is..

Why Men Love Bitches is a great self-help book for women who end up putting too much of themselves into a relationship either habitually or particular to one relationship. If you do not have problems with giving too much of yourself to a relationship, then don't even bother to read this book. It's not intended for you.

Me? I do have the tendency to give my all (too much) so this book was very helpful for me. Does it say stuff that I already know? Of course. Any good self-help book is stating comm

Well, apart from the title ... which I believe was chosen for pure marketing reasons, I could relate to every part of this book, and I was happy knowing that I'm doing it right. The book gives women reassurance that hey dont need to be anythin but themselves, it seeks to empower women and free them from the enslavement they put themselves under when they choose to be committed in a relationship and totally disregard their own needs.

I read this on the recommendation of a friend, and it was the worst book I have ever read in my life - which is really saying something, because I read 50 Shades of Grey.

If this book is by any means an accurate depiction of modern relationships - hell no. I will gladly just stay single for the rest of my days rather than dealing with this fucking nonsense:

. I fell in love w/ this book because it opened up my eyes to things I thought is right & okay in dealing w/ a man.
First and foremost it says in the book that being a bitch doesn't mean you are rude or a whore. The term "bitch" means being independent and a woman who stand to her own principles. What i learned most in this book is that being nice and kind is a necessity only when a guy is worth keeping and that he knows your value. In contrary, being nice & kind to an asshole who doesn't
