I have to say this book was fun to read.

Don't let anyone convince you otherwise...and don't let your wildly optimistic side convince you otherwise, either.

I've read more than a few of these books - this one I have picked up over and over to re-read certain sections.

Dating/Relationship Guides like Weight Loss/Dieting Guides all claim to have a great secret to impart to you...and we always fall for it. There is no secret to maintaining a healthy trim figure: eat moderately, exercise and drink water; same goes for dating guides for women. All guides will say the same thing, especially if they are written by male models whose dating pool includes every human being in the universe; look great (i.e. sexy), keep the conversation light, make him dance to your rules and reward him when he does and punish him when he doesn't, don't make it easy for him, men want to hunt...let them, never nag, make him feel like "the man", all while remaining serenely independent and ready to move on at the drop of the hat.

Fun to read, but hardly revelatory; these are the same guidelines Mom and Grandma lived by back in the 1950's. Nevertheless, there are some tried and true methods that are probably worth keeping in mind when you venture out with a new man.

At long last, someone that has put some common sense into the communication gap between men and women. If only I had been armed with this information years ago.

I've grown tired of all of these so called "experts" that take the liberty of telling me what I need to do or what's "wrong with me." I'm tired of these experts speaking to me like I'm in remedial relationships 101.

I am not sure why I decided to take a chance on this book, but I am glad that I did. Mr. Zinczenko has finally given me the information that I WANT to hear - What the heck is going on in a man's head! And not the author's head, for once there is a book that has some valuable research as its subject matter. He doesn't praddle on about his own beliefs, concerns or mistakes. He gives us information straight from the horses mouth (interviews with thousands of men)and lays it out in a simple, smart and entertaining book. I absolutely love the fun informational asides like "What it means when" and "Say this, not that."

Do I think this book will solve my relationship problems? I'm not sure. I will say this much. I'm much more well informed than I was before and this book has certainly given me some persepctive into what it takes to have meaningful communication with the opposite sex.

I recommend this book to anyone that is fed up with men telling us how we should feel or think. Finally, a man willing to tell us how THEY feel and think. Now that's information I can use.

Format: Hardcover
I picked up the book after reading a review of it in O Magazine (Oprah Winfrey's publication). The book is an easy read, but the content doesn't explicity follow the chapter titles, ie. How to make a man fall in love, etc. Maybe I'm a bit too rigid, but when the book says that there are three things you can do to make man think of you as the one, and doesn't follow it with a list of three things, I feel a little letdown.

The book did, however, help hammer in some truths that I'm in denial about as a woman. The chapter on "it's not you, it's me" is 100% true. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise...and don't let your wildly optimistic side convince you otherwise, either. Even though the chapter parrots the entire premise of "He's Just Not That Into You," it never hurts hearing the cold, hard truth again.

Format: Hardcover
But I was disappointed. I'm in my early twenties and multiracial, if that may help you in understanding where I'm coming from. Though I'm young, I've been divorced and remarried within that time, so needless to say, I really wanted to understand men, the good and the bad. With this book, (which I bought hardcover because I didn't want to wait the extra few weeks for the paperback, what a waste) all I felt I got was excuses.

I'm married to a very good man and this book, doesn't apply to him at all. However, it excused every bad thing I couldn't stand about my ex. Maybe I should've looked for a book written by a psychologist, not by a men's magazine editor. The thing is though, David Zinczenko, writes an excellent weekly column that I used to read via Yahoo. This is why I picked up his book in the first place. I figured it would be entertaining and informative, instead it lacked insight and offered no real advice to women. Who did you want to read this? Because the questions and answers went something like this to me.

Q. Why does my husband/boyfriend never want to go over to dinner at my parents?

A. Well most men don't like situations in which they might be uncomfortable, it's your job to be understanding because this is how a man is.

What? Are you serious? That's the way a man is and that's just is. Caveman ooga booga, testosterone, penis, football, blah blahblah.
Maybe the answers in this book were acceptable to most of you, (men I'm hoping), but for someone genuinely trying to understand a man, it fell way short.

I was looking for more in depth answers, maybe based on some studies, psychological maybe, doctor approved maybe?

I read a lot of reviews on here before I bought this item. Quite a few of them criticize the book for little things, for example the book's layout; one complaint condemned the entire book due to the fact that it shared similarities to something one might read in a magazine! But the book was great! I finished it in 2 days! The chapters are broken up into subjects from initial attraction to commitment and even addressing the ever-popular question: "Why do men cheat?" The chapters feature anywhere between 2-4 questions asked by women and answered by the author (who also happens to be the Editor-in-chief of Men's Health magazine) along with other men of varying ages. The features within each chapter added even more helpful insight (and humor!) like the "Instead of... say this" section. The section gives practical suggestions on how to approach a subject or initiate a conversation in a way that would allow a man to understand and open up to instead of feeling threatened by. Oh, and just in case you think that this book encourages women to simply cater to a man's whim... you're wrong! It's an (albeit somewhat generalized)attempt to answer many of the Why's that cause so much confusion to women about men in an overall light-hearted, humorous tone. Beyond the stereotypical differences, this book encourages women to understand that at the end of the day, men really do want to find that special someone to cherish and get to give their heart and soul to; they just approach it differently.
