There are 46 chapters and each are 1-3 pages long. So the reader should expect that the author writes each chapter in the format of a blog post as opposed to providing in-depth insight into various facets/factors of abreakup. I also believe that the author's perspective is his own opinion and are generalizations at best. I appreciate his insight on some topics but I feel duped in purchasing his book since it is simply a regurgitation of his blog.
Tired of sugar coated, overly politically correct dating advice from well meaning friends/family/not so great books? - The kind of advice designed to make you feel better w/o providing any real worthwhile, practical information? On the other hand, are you ALSO tired of overly harsh, highly sexist dating advice (ie. "the red pill theory" / "the manosphere" blogs - which are mostly geared to insecure men to make women feel bad about themselves)? Then this is the book/blog for you.
The author writes is a way that is straight forward, succinct and NOT sugar coated. As a very honest person myself, i greatly appreciate his straight - shooter attitude. But the best part is that he will ALWAYS give you advice as to how to improve your situation - he does not pity or look down on women!
As for the book alone, even if you aren't dealing with the aftermath of a break up after a serious, long term relationship, DON'T think that this book won't apply to you! He makes it clear from page one that his use of the term "break up" in the title is quite loose - he defines "break up" in this book as anything from the end of a long-term committed relationship to a one night stand that didn't work out, and anything in between. He gives very clear advice as to how to act and handle various situations. And if you can't improve the situation, how to keep your pride and the best way to move on. This book (and blog) is free of gimmicks and silly manipulative tactics. Just well-written, straight forward advice.
If you are on the fence about buying this book, do yourself a favor and check out his blog - therulesrevisited.com. While his writing is primarily geared toward young women (teens to early-mid 30's), I believe that older ladies, or ladiesdealing with a divorce/bad relationship later in life will still find great advice in both book and blog.
My only regrets are that I did not read his blog when I was in my mid-late teens and had no clue how to deal with men (my parents were well meaning but not very good teachers when it came to relationships, and I was a late bloomer, both looks-wise and socially, so I need all the dating advice I can get). I also wish that he hadn't stopped updating his blog.
Please Andrew, if you read this review, I (and many many women) LOVE your work! I hope you come back to writing more at some point soon. I think he could make a very solid living as a writer.
Not only an educational tool, but a very enlightening, honest and enjoyable read.
