Brilliant and Thoughtful
on November 7, 2002
I think this book is brilliant and thoughtful. A lot of what it says applies to me and other Asian women. Every man should read it and do what it says. On second thought, they should also do what the book says NOT to do. I HATE pick up lines targeted toward my ethnicity, and I get that a lot. Contrary to what some people believe, Ming Tan is not trying to perpetuate stereotypes. In fact, she is trying to dispel stereotypes of Asian women.
There is a chapter for Asian men that is also very much relevant. Asian men seem to blame Asian women for dating outside the race, but statistics say that Asian men date interacially almost as much as Asian women.
The dating tips are excellent, but this book is more than that. Only intelligent people will understand. Actually, this book empowers Asian women. Read it!!
