Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Who'd know more about picking up hot women than the only woman to be both a Playboy Playmate of the Month and a Penthouse Pet of the Year? Also a clinical psychologist and sex therapist, Zdrok advises men on everything from what to wear on a date to how to eroticize your love den. While some of the advice is obvious (brush your teeth regularly), there are also fun and helpful tidbits like what to talk about on a first date and foreign-language phrases that will make you sound smart. A useful book for the man who knows absolutely nothing about women. (Jan. 8)

For example, she suggests you hang around women's shoe stores or clothing stores (that's creepy, isn't it?
Lux et Veritas
In some instances telling the viewer how "worthless" and "pathetic" they are and they could never get a woman like her because she is "too good" for them.

Still, it's not a bad book to read, but certainly following this advice won't actually get you a playboy model.

Most of the book seems to be a rehash of the pick-up books that recommend you just be yourself and not act creepy. This, of course, is one of the two major types of "how to pick up women" books. The other is the "outsmart 'em", "use them before they use you" contemptuous approach.

And telling men not to twitch, have bad breath or dirty clothing, etc., shouldn't be necessary. Really, that's just padding the book. If the answer is "It's not padding. You'd be surprised how many men don't follow these suggestions", I still think that someone who needs to be told this isn't going to be helped by the book. I can't imagine anyone saying, "I have to bathe before I go out to a bar? And wear clean clothes, too? Huh! I never knew that! Thank you, Dr. Z!"

Then there are the obvious observations, such as "Hot women tend to be more promiscuous than other women." I don't know if I agree with that, but, assuming it's correct, if someone is reading this book, it's because he wants to know HOW to approach women, not which ones to approach. It's only half an answer to say, "The hot women are the most likely to sleep with a man." The answer to that is, "And the hot women only want the hot men. So what am I supposed to do?"

What isn't a rehash, padding or obvious is just plain bad advice - and it isn't even consistent with the "just be yourself and don't act creepy, and women will like you" approach.

For example, she suggests you hang around women's shoe stores or clothing stores (that's creepy, isn't it? Unless you're going to use the transparent, "It's for my cousin/niece/sister" dodge).

She also recommends ploys such as waiting until you see an attractive woman check the price tag on a dress and, with a sad look on her face, put it back on the rack. Then you go over to her and buy her the dress! Now, that's setting a bad precedent. Not to mention that you might have to buy a lot of expensive dresses before you get a date out of it!

Format: Paperback
The main focus of this book is to reassure the male readers that there are beautiful women out there who will be attracted to any kind of physical or psychological anomaly. The message that resonated from the book seems to be a few short tips on how to meet women, sometimes by treating total strangers as higher class citizens, coupled with the reassurance that there's someone out there for everyone, no matter what your looks, interests, career, or personality. And if you're looking for a specific woman, you should find out her hobbies and her past boyfriends and reinvent yourself to match them. She tells readers to keep trying; a rejection is simply a sign of a bad fit rather than a honest testimony of the person's approach. This is a good book for reassuring people who feel hopeless after their last break up, but not a good resource for a person who's wondering why their past relationships have not held on. Dr. Z seems to tell readers the same kinds of things a relationship counselor picked out by your ex-wife would say.

By the way, did anyone else notice how many of the good reviews cited 'easy to read' as one of the pros of this book?

She probably wrote the book with good intentions. Or maybe she wanted to jump on the recent bandwagon of best-selling pickup books. But honest or not, this book was written for men to find women, from a woman's experience. Although she has a PhD in Psychology, her suggestions are not based on medical research. Although she references popular pickup artists, her ideology diverges from theirs. When deciding whether or not to buy this book, you should remember that she writes based upon her own experiences, expectations, and desires. I assume she has never tried any of the things suggested in this book to pick up other women.

Format: Paperback
It amazes me how stupid society can become over something as basic,and in the grand scheme of things,shallow as eye candy.For all the five star positive reviews posted over this "PHD" and her book of "professional advice," allow me to shed some light on this woman as the psychoanalyst fails to honestly psychoanalyze herself.

1.-She married a criminal defense attorney for the mafia soley to obtain her green card.

2.-In the numerous times she has been to court over past marriages and lawsuits,a judge has been quoated as saying her testomonies are "less than truthful."

3.-She has posed nude with both her elderly mom (YUCK!) and her sister.... I don't know how in the hell they do things in Ukriane,but ladies,would YOU want to pose nude with your mom or make out with your sister?Hmmm... did her study in psychology touch the subject of incest?

4.-Although in one chapter of her book she says the answer to the question of "does size matter?" is a definite,overwhelming "no";she can still be found on infomercials at three and four am on various cable channels for "male enhancement" tablets.In another words,if the price is right,she's willing to throw the ethics of being a doctor out the window.

5.-Like so many "original" revolutionaries before her,she has come out and attacked -insert negative tone of voice here- Western ideology;specificaly in regard to Catholicisim.Even going so far as to say that St. Thomas Aquinas and other doctors of the Church were bisexual and had guilt complexes. It's very noble indeed to attack the dead as they are unable to defend themselves. On an added note,let's put the shoe on the other foot with this one--- Dr. Z,real name Nika Victoria Zdrok, boasts being both a Playboy playmate and Penthouse pet of the year.
