I like that the book is light-hearted and fun to read.

Basically, if you hate yourself and want to become a totally different person in order to snag a "man" this book is for you.

I'm kind of a square so I don't really know about these things.

Basically, if you hate yourself and want to become a totally different person in order to snag a "man" this book is for you.
If you are a confident, awesome woman who just hasn't found the right person yet, stay far, far away from this book.
The advice in this book is so completely ridiculous that my friends and I have been literally laughing over it. For example:
If you have two cats send one away for the night so you don't scare him away?? (One cat okay, two cats clearly marks you as a spinster.)
Hide all of your books?? (Seriously?)
Limit your sports talk to Sunday afternoons?? (What??? This isn't even human. And what if you don't like football but are a baseball fan instead??)
Make sure you have a fancy, flat screen tv in your living room!
Are these people kidding?

Of course, there is more to this book than those few examples I just listed, but overall, it's a bunch of garbage. It bleeds sexism.
Offensive to men AND women, this book is only good for entertainment purposes.
If you are an actual human being and you are trying to use this book for the purpose it intends, good luck. And make sure to have plenty of fresh-cut flowers in beautiful vases, breath mints and candles all over your apartment.

I recently bought this book and was so disappointed. Basically, the advice in this book is for women to strip themselves of their identity, opinion and personality and just cater to men.

I was especially 'horrified' at the chapter that describes what you should do to your apartment to make it 'guy friendly' ... the author advises you to get rid of pets, photos of your family, health food in your refrigerator, and any evidence of religious beliefs for the first time a guy visits your apartment?

So basically, you create a false illusion of yourself and 'snare' the guy and then the real you comes out when you get to know each other and the guy was sold a bunch of lies and leaves you anyway?

One of my best male friends read through the book and told me to throw the book away ... he thought it was ridiculous and it's not how men think. His advice is that a man has to love you for who you are. And that advice is not in this book.

P.S. I did throw the book away.

Its funny how us romantic girls just run crazy with one date , one phone call, many text messages. We forget to ground ourselves and we just start day dreaming what our new last name. This books gives girls an edge. Its helps become fun and confident. It teaches them great tricks to have little pick me uppers. I loved this book. I really think you to are not sure about the guys in your life you might want to read this books to begin your process of elimination.

I'm a clinical psychologist, and I found this book really lacking in substance. A much better book on this topic is "Have Him at Hello." (The title is bad, but the book is great, research based, and constructive.)

Why Hasn't He Called, has many problems. First of all, there are more than 5 kinds of men. Pretty obvious, huh? The categories are over-simplified and apply only to a narrow percentage of men. They also overlap.

Secondly, the advice is really limiting for future relationships. For example, have your cats stay at a friend's house the first night your bf sleeps over. Really? The reason given was cats are synonymous with being a spinster. This is just stupid. (And I'm not reacting from personal feelings, I have dogs.) What if you stay together, and he later asks you to get rid of your pets. That would suck. I've known people who have gone through this. If he doesn't like your pets, dump him!

An over-all problem with this book is that most human beings already have these basic social skills. Would you really talk about marriage and babies on the first date? If so, you're probably not smart enough to even read a book. If a man talked about marriage and babies on the first date, I would run in the other direction!

Other poor advice includes hiding Bibles and other religious books from your home. What if you met at church or on a Christian dating site? In certain parts of the country, having a Bible around might be pretty normal. - (And I'm not religious, just making a point.)

Much of the advice also seems to be regionally based. Some of these things only apply to cities in the Northeast. In most places in America, you won't be walking home from a date or have a doorman.

That brings me to another point, it's also pretty elitist.

A friend of mine showed me this book and it was so awful, I feel compelled to come on here and write a review. In essence, the book suggests that you pretend to be someone you're not (to lie) in order to get a man. Now, it's true that we all try to put our best foot forward when dealing with the opposite sex. This book suggests you take two steps backwards, turn around a few times and hide everything that makes you you. One suggestion is to hide all your books and movies. Here I would like to quote from a book that will really let you into the male mind, High Fidelity: A Novel, "If your music and movie collections don't get along, chances are the two of you won't either." DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. Spend the money on something worth while.
