Without having actually read the book, it is my opinion that this book is worthless and not worth reading.
A. Wong
Her advice is insipid and anyone who takes the advice in this book are going to be disappointed when things get worse instead of better.
Pomaikaiokalani Kajiyama
She never takes this into consideration, and basically just tells women how to harvest men like they're cattle.

Format: Paperback
The author has paid little attention to factual accuracy or factually supported arguments, instead putting forth archaic theories long since disproven by the majority of the scientific community. This book does not do justice to her peers, many self-help books are excellent and can change people's lives (eg. Chicken Soup for the Soul, The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying, etc.) - this is not one of them. Her shameful rhetoric is easy to see through. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to get angry over something, but doesn't know what.

This is one of the 5 worse books I have ever written, and the other 4 were written by Cooper Lawrence as well. This woman is a complete hack who has lost all credibility. Her advice is insipid and anyone who takes the advice in this book are going to be disappointed when things get worse instead of better. Cooper Lawrence needs to stick to what she knows, which is nothing. Please stop killing trees to print your horrible books Cooper. I shudder at the mass effect this book will have on the populace.

Cooper, perhaps a change of profession is in order. You're obviously much better at shamelessly bashing a video game you have neither played nor sought out accurate information for on cable television than you are at writing a cohesive document for publication.

This book is drivel of the lowest kind from the lowest kind of person.

Format: Paperback
As a licensed psychologist who worked hard for my credentials and take my professional endeavors and commitment to help others seriously, I find Cooper Lawrence deeply disturbing on many levels. The title "psychologist" is legally and ethically reserved for individuals with a doctoral degree and that have furthermore met the rigorous criteria of state licensing boards. Cooper Lawrence has neither of these credentials.

Cooper Lawrence and the various "respected" national media outlets that feature her and her unsubstantiated, sensationalistic, and often downright erroneous advice should be held accountable for this unprofessional, inappropriate, unethical, irresponsible, and in my opinion often dangerous behavior.

There are competent psychologists out there that are committed to helping (not exploiting others for personal aggrandizement and financial gain). Please don't let the reputation of these professionals be tarnished by "psychology experts" like Cooper Lawrence.

Format: Paperback
As a single mom who makes a living by running a pawn shop, I found this book deeply troubling. My ability to feed my kids depends on women who come into my shop and sell jewelry they no longer need. This book just makes it more difficult to get by, and I have resorted to food stamps, which was a better use of paper than this book.

Are you a golddigger? Are you only in relationships for money? Do you try to squeeze as much jewelry out of a man as you can? Then this book will tell you how to be a manipulative sociopath. Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Lawrence's guide to finding the perfect man is her guide, not yours! She doesn't take into account that all the "losers" are just different men going through different life stages. There's always a reason as to why a man behaved the way he did (party animal, video game bum, etc...), and its not always bad. Everyone needs an escape and that may be why he's into video games or parties. She never takes this into consideration, and basically just tells women how to harvest men like they're cattle. Again, she may have used these steps to find her man (bless his poor soul), but everyone is different. Use your own experiences to make you own steps into finding someone who truly loves you. I can guarantee that when you become a gold-digger by reading and following this book, love will be forever out of your life.

Format: Paperback
It astonishes me that so many morons are on TV constantly yammering on about things they know nothing about. From psychology to pornography in video games, Ms. Lawrence knows nothing about anything yet she seems to be making the big bucks churning out crap that her publicist has managed to get on every morning show and entertainment news program.

If you want to read about psychology, pick up a book by Carl Jung. If you want to read about modern culture, pick up something by Chuck Klosterman.
