Guiliana DePandi, Think Like a Guy: How to Get a Guy by Thinking Like One (St. Martin's, 2006)

I put this on hold online, and so didn't have to check the aisles to find out where it was. Can someone please tell me that this book is classified as humor instead of self-help? Because while it's not funny, it's certainly a better fit for the humor section, in its ham-handed, idiotic sort of way. As a self-help book, I can't imagine a worse failure. Not just for the way it portrays women—as money-grubbing servile wenches who would do just about anything to land the best (or, really, any passing) man—but in general, as well. And while DePandi starts off trying to pull her punches a bit—she initially cautions women to be “evasive” in dating (though, to correct her hunting analogy a bit, after the hunter has missed the deer nine or ten times, what's he going to do? He's going to go look for another deer), it doesn't take her long to take off the gloves and tell the hapless reader what she's really advocating. When she says, “Here's the quick fix: lie.” on page 31, it's not the first time she's advocated lying in order to land a guy. Take a tip from one: when he finds out you did, he'll dump you like someone who read Giuliana DePandi's dating advice. (zero)
