Men like to think it's their thing.

Who doesn't know that guys would prefer women to shave, wear lingerie instead of granny panties, and not smell like their grandmother.

Every single and dating woman (and even some of you married women!), NEEDS to read this book.

Why would I take dating advice from this antiquated, artificial, divorced after 9 months woman whose best tips are to wear high heels and never wear a nude bra? This book has the most obvious ways in the world to attract a man, but doesn't dare go any deeper to discuss relationships in any sort of meaningful way. If you're strictly looking for the maximum amount of male attention, save your money and invest in makeup and heels, instead. At least, that would be Whitney's advice. This book is terrible for women in general and especially young women who should be told that there are in fact men out there who value more than fake tans and artifice.

A book about how to please men that advises women to cook more meat, and read up on sports and make sure you have a nice tv? Really????

Excuse me, what year is it?

This book is just stupid. If what you want is to fulfill every wish/fantasy that a guy has, it's not difficult to do that. But what about a real relationships based on being who you really are? Wouldn't a woman's time be better spent trying to achieve that?

Like many of the other readers that have written reviews on this book, I too am extremely dissappointed that I ordered this one. This book was like Drive Men Wild-For Dummies! If you've never gotten any attention what-so-ever from a man then this book is for you!
I skimmed through this book in its entirety the day that I received it in the mail and had to laugh-out-loud! The only reason I even bought this was because I'd heard an advertisement for it on my local radio station and it drew my curiousity because they really didnt give many details regarding its message and only focused on the writers resume. I will know better next time. This was a complete waste of my money. This book was filled with nonsense. Teaching the readers hygiene tips, make-up, how to send cell phone text messages using correct abbreviations! come on now...get real... Please save your money

Format: Paperback
According to "The Man Plan," in order to get a man, I must wear the perfect outfit (no pearls or bracelets that make noise, God forbid), never carry a large purse, wear matching bras and panties (must be sexy, never comfy), never let a man know I might use Nair or other beauty products, never go to a restaurant where they serve fajitas (it might make my hair smell!), only wear makeup deemed acceptable by the male population, have an extensive vocabulary on gourmet food, be a wine expert, know quotes from a variety of "Man movies", be an excellent cook, be knowledgeable with cars, become a "Miss Fix it", understand and enjoy all sports, never admit that I am sometimes insecure, and be amazing in the sack.

Essentially, I am to adhere to a meticulous list in order to become the perfect specimen of woman. Now, I am all for offering helpful suggestions for becoming the kind of person that others want to be around, but Casey's commandments are unreachable. Her bumbling, non-effective writing style glosses over the stories (which are obviously fabricated) and ignores the fact that these "men" she interviews are dumping otherwise great woman for things such as carrying the wrong purse, wearing nude colored bras, or having the gall to smell like fajitas after dining at a Mexican restaurant. Apparently, not being equipped to carry an arsenal of beauty products in your purse (which must be small and cute, of course) is a cardinal sin in dating.

The entire time I read this book, I couldn't help but think that the people with the problems weren't the women at all. Casey and the "men" she interviewed sounded like miserable, judgmental people.

I hope that no woman reads this and believes that she must follow each of these rules to find love.

I heard so much about this book & felt completely deflated when I read it....there was absolutely nothing cerebral to it.

Perhaps if someone needs help with the fundamentals of hygiene & etiquette, then this book would be good place to start.

After interviewing 250 men "from SoHo to St. Louis", Whitney Casey has released a book that is all the rage among single women called "The Man Plan". While her tips to not reveal too much skin on the first date and to smell like baked goods instead of your grandmother's garden are sometimes pedestrian, Ms. Casey does present some well-researched ideas that even the most seasoned dater might find useful. For instance, she quotes a university study that claims wearing the scent of grapefruit will make you appear 10 lbs. thinner. Hmmm...

However, I did take issue with tips such as:
- Pretend you don't know much about sports. Men like to think it's their thing.
- Don't put pictures of your family or your dog by your bed.

These tips are simply manipulations that deter you from being your fabulous self! Maybe they will help you get a 2nd date, but they won't help you keep the guy.

And did I mention that Ms. Casey herself is single? (She does have an interesting relationship portfolio though, having been married to Jason Sehorn and dated Rocco diSpirito.)
