With 270 pages, and the word bible in the title, I was expecting less pictures. From the poor graphic design of the cover that is meant to be more playful than a serious presentation of a subject, I guess I should have expected as much. What you see on the front cover is what you'll get inside, it follows that basic format.

The pictures are large, generously inserted; it seems to be a full page picture every other page, and when there is text more pictures are thrown in, and the text is blown up to I'd say 20font. This could be an okay coffee table book in a dorm room. But it makes for a poor reading experience. While the pictures are large and generous, much like the text they lack content.

If you want to know how to flirt you need to know how to position your body, how to look at a person, how to touch them, and when to not touch them. The dynamics of Flirting is not limited only to how to come off not as having interest in a person at a particular time; you need a well-rounded understanding of how to use your body in every situation, confidence when you need confidence, to be approachable when you want to be approachable, to know what you want and to get what you want exactly when you want it. This book offers only a bastardized taste of these things, that other books printed 50 years ago have excelled at providing, without a single picture. Such as: How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People by Les T. Giblin

In The Flirting Bible for example, the example they provide for when not to touch someone they show different angles of a girl leaning away from a guy and leave it at that. This is not a flirting bible, it is a handful of partially-thought-out techniques. For a flirting bible, I would suggest getting multiple books on body language.

This book has the feel of being written by a Facebook blogger, for college kids looking to go on a one-night date.

All of that said, for $13 it was a decent addition to my collection on the subject for the pictures, that I may bring out to show someone else, but I sure wont be using this as a reference manual for myself.

After reading Flirting Bible, I found it very informative, especially on body language. If you just make a few contacts with people that result in dates, then the book is worth every cent you paid for it.
I had a few good connections by using some of the help features. One would never think that something so easy to apply would work wounders, but it does.
Fran hit the nail on the head. After reading it, you also will strike gold.

This book might be helpful for you that have no social skills at all, but it's not worth much of anything to the average person. In fact, the only thing great or useful about this book to most is a few pages towards the end where they give you some ideas. In essence, use "props." Wear an interesting shirt or a watch. Just about anything you can that you can use to make people talk to you and it's good to have a story to go with these props. If you don't have one, make one up... So there, that is the big secret of this book. Otherwise there is nothing substantial. So don't come out from under your rock for this book, it's a waste of your time

On the one hand, this is a 200+ page book about flirting, so you're bound to learn at least a few things. Some of the pictures are helpful too, to give you a visual of flirting in action. This helped me as I'm the type of guy who would realize at the end of the night that the one girl at the bar was hitting on me- only now its too late. There's some good tips on how to better recognize and respond to flirting as a starting point.

But for the most part, this book is really vanilla. The advice seems a generation old and is general, obvious stuff, like "Listen closely to them, use their name, ask them questions, compliment their shirt, smile, use eye contact..." Ok, but what are the specifics? It's like someone telling you the way to be a star football player is to always catch the ball and avoid getting tackled. Is that all? You get the basic structure, but not much else.

You know a good flirt when you encounter one- they're smooth and engaging and know just what to say that gets the other person feeling great. This book won't get you there, but it will get off the wall and starting a conversation. And if you're a beginner, or just lost, this book will be a good starting point.

Good layout, poor content -- unless you're looking for suggestion gold like "don't wink with both eyes." (!!) Seriously?
I was once diagnosed with Asperger's and this book is too obvious even for me.

Whilst I do appreciate the author's emphasis on the right mindset, attitude and body language, there are several issues she should have addressed better. First, the heavy use of photos did not bring together the right dose of illustration. Second, the very little on how to "connect" with the target failed to make this book complete. For men who want to sharpen their edge, I would strongly recommend "How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You by Leil Lowndes", "The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene" and "How to Succeed with Women by Ron Louis".

p.s. Below please find some of my favorite passages for your reference.
Flirting is less about what you say and more about the energy you create with your flirting interest. Playful banter, intense eye contact, curiosity, and undivided attention will create stimulating and exciting flirting energy. To do this, focus on the other person and do whatever you can to make him/her feel special. Block out the rest of the world to establish a bond between you. Pg34
Look at the person for approximately two to four seconds, smile, look away, and then continue on your way. This activity puts you more at ease smiling at strangers so it becomes your second nature. Pg46
Eye contact is the soul of flirtation. It establishes trust and intimacy. Making eye contact is a great way to introduce yourself to your interest. It should last two to four seconds. Anything longer will cause the other person to feel uncomfortable. Pg48
Acting self-confident can boost your self-confidence for real. Fake it until you make it! It really works. Pg50
How to do the male flirtatious handshake? 1) Smile 2) Look directly into her eyes 3) Move in toward her and extend your right hand to initiate a handshake 4) With your right hand, shake her right hand as you normally would. Simultaneously, bring your left hand into the shake and give an extra squeeze to the back of her hand (the one you are holding). Think of your hands as the bread of a sandwich, with her hand as the filling. 5) Say hello and state how nice it is to meet her. Pg66

Idiotic book. Greene has no idea what she's writing about. Grow up Fran. Get out of your dorm room and go to class. Written for 8th graders. Maybe 6th. Can't believe I bought it

Good read,very informative. Not very discriptive photos. There are photos but they don't delve into the meaning of the photos.

This book really helps teaches you the basics of non-verbal communication in a fun and entertaining way. If you follow the tactics of how to flirt in this book, you will meet more people than before. If you already knew everything, you should be meeting people anyways, and the book will just reaffirm all that you have seen while at the bar or on your dates. A great informative fun read.
