Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Buried deep inside each of us, a fun, flirtatious person is anxious to get out. No longer do you have to be the wallflower at the party, watching others mixing and mingling and meeting that absolutely fabulous person in the corner. In How to Attract Anyone, Anytime, Anyplace, Susan Rabin, a therapist who was a coordinator for Family Living/Sex Education for the New York City Board of Education, elucidates the principles of flirting--from body language to conversation tips to where to meet other singles--and helps to get you on your way to getting out there!

This book is a playful read, although it's not as in-depth as some of the other romance self-help books (such as Leil Lowndes's How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You, which, while covering much of the same material, has a scientific basis at its core and tends to take itself a bit more seriously). Rabin concisely gives you the tools to gain the self-confidence necessary to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. The advice won't help you once you get to that first date, but the detailed explanation of the beginning steps will help you find the person to ask out. And if for reasons unknown, that person turns you down, Rabin also advises on how to deal with "no."

Although a quiz in the beginning is supposed to enable you to determine what type of flirt you are (for example, a self-centered flirt, the analytical flirt, or the pressured flirt), Rabin doesn't spend much time exploring what this means for individuals or how to overcome specific flaws. Instead, How to Attract Anyone, Anytime, Anyplace deals more with generalities: each chapter gives a heart-shaped bulleted list of tips under categories such as "How to Make Your Own Luck" and "Tips from a Master Flirt." The one chapter that does venture into the territory of psychology--"Don't Be Your Own Worst Enemy"--is a bit cursory and unsatisfying. Overall, though, this guide is ideal for the beginner who honestly feels that there's nowhere to go to meet new people and feels utterly hopeless when faced with a stranger. Before you know it, Rabin will help you feel like a flirt extraordinaire! --Jenny Brown

This book is ok. Some might find it useful. I'd say someone new to flirting completely will get more from this book that someone who is looking to improve their flirting skills. Many of the examples Susan Rabin gives are cliche' and outdated. I was shocked at how similar this book was to the information publicly available at [...] from the Social Issues Research Center in Oxford.

If you're totally clueless about interpersonal communication and psychology, you might might find this book to be a decent primer. At age 33, I just didn't learn anything new at all from it.
I found it to be mostly trite common sense, and the endless peppiness and contrived wittiness got on my nerves.
The book is outrageously mistitled. It most certainly will NOT teach you "how to attract anyone, anytime, anyplace"!!! It doesn't even pretend to teach you that. No book could.
I was hoping for more ice breakers and conversation starters. I already know not to stare at a woman's body or stare at somebody across the room too long, not to brag about myself, take an interest in her, be a good listener, etc. The very few conversation starters it did give were pretty lame. I mean, who's going to walk up to somebody and ask "what's an adventure you've had that stands out in your mind?"

Format: Paperback
This is a great book. I have found that by using some of the techniques, it gives me confidence because I "know" what I am supposed to be doing if I want to flirt with someone. Many of the points in this book are similar to those in "How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You", except this book is not as scientific. I suggest reading this book, go out (anywhere) and start using the techniques to flirt (remembering you are not looking for your wife/husband in everyone you flirt with). It will help eliminate some of the shyness some of us feel when it comes to flirting and using these techniques helps maintain a safe distance for some rejection if all you are looking for in the beginning are a few smiles from that attractive woman (trust me, you can get them.. got two yesterday in about an hour.. those smiles made my day). Then, after applying these techniques, get the book "How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You" and find out how you screwed up on that last date (trust me, I found out how I screwed up with the last 2 girls I was interested in and it became clear how, in one day, I did the things that "turned off" someone that seemed interested just the day before) and how you can use the flirting techniques with more in-depth scientific techniques. These books go together well and are probably the only ones I would think are necessary for becoming educated in relationships and meeting people. There are still barriers that will always be there, like rejection and shyness, but this book and "How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You" provide a "roadmap" for those of us who would like a checklist of things to do (even when it's not always so clear).

I was looking for a book that would help me understand what kind of signals I've been sending out using my own body language, and how to interpret others as well. This book hit the spot. As of now, I am single and anxious to get into a intimate relationship. When I started reading other books on this sort of material, I got the feeling I needed to act a certain way...or be someone I was'nt. Susan Rabin set me straight. If you pretend to be someone your not...someone will fall in love with that person...not yourself. This book describes how to bring out the flirt inside of you, without altering your personality. I can't wait to buy her other book.

Just as a precursor: I hardly ever rate a book 10 unless I come away feeling that it was true perfection.
This book was very good, though. I don't know what the person who gave it a 2 was thinking (or if he/she was thinking at all). The book teaches a lot about body language, and good ways to gauge the actions and reactions of the person one is flirting with. Personally, I learned a lot about how to deal with rejection, and how to get past the initial "hello." The book explains things called "flirt props" that one can use to approach and be approached. Without a doubt, I'd recommend this book to any of my friends who complain about their dating life.

Oh this book is great! It's unisex, so it can apply to males or females. First of all, I never knew how boring i was when trying to flirt with the ladies, until i read this great book! They used to blow me off like nothing in the past, but lately after applying the lessons from this book into my flirtatious playtime, I have been sweeping women off their feet! So will you! This book described the "old" me to a t, and how to change from a lifeless, unlucky, bump on a log (yes, this was me!), to a certified, enjoyable, pleasurable, charming, attractive FLIRT!
For example: One particular problem i've always had was eye-contact. This book helped me solve my problem, because what i always did was stare at a girl like she was an elephant that just walked into a crowded room. The girl i was after would just sneer at me like I just went potty in her wheaties. To give you a little quick lesson from the book, i learned a valuable lesson by using the term "the flirting triangle", where you imagine an upside-down triangle on the girl's face. The base of the triangle is from each side of her forehead, and the apex of it is at her chin. Being stared at is intimidating, and a big turn-off, but... if you use the flirting triangle, and glance at different areas of her face, you won't scare her off. Don't go lower than the chin! You don't want her to think you're a pervert. Just remember, don't stare!! You'll be left high and dry. The verb to use is GLANCE, for the amount of time it would take you to say "i see you. Do you see me?" Then with eye-contact comes the hello, the convos, the dating, and maybe, the marriage! Ooops! Forgot about the stork after that! Just kidding.
I love this book. So will you! Say goodbye to the old, boring, lonely you, and read this book! You won't be disappointed!
