This book is a playful read, although it's not as in-depth as some of the other romance self-help books (such as Leil Lowndes's How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You, which, while covering much of the same material, has a scientific basis at its core and tends to take itself a bit more seriously). Rabin concisely gives you the tools to gain the self-confidence necessary to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. The advice won't help you once you get to that first date, but the detailed explanation of the beginning steps will help you find the person to ask out. And if for reasons unknown, that person turns you down, Rabin also advises on how to deal with "no."
Although a quiz in the beginning is supposed to enable you to determine what type of flirt you are (for example, a self-centered flirt, the analytical flirt, or the pressured flirt), Rabin doesn't spend much time exploring what this means for individuals or how to overcome specific flaws. Instead, How to Attract Anyone, Anytime, Anyplace deals more with generalities: each chapter gives a heart-shaped bulleted list of tips under categories such as "How to Make Your Own Luck" and "Tips from a Master Flirt." The one chapter that does venture into the territory of psychology--"Don't Be Your Own Worst Enemy"--is a bit cursory and unsatisfying. Overall, though, this guide is ideal for the beginner who honestly feels that there's nowhere to go to meet new people and feels utterly hopeless when faced with a stranger. Before you know it, Rabin will help you feel like a flirt extraordinaire! --Jenny Brown

I found it to be mostly trite common sense, and the endless peppiness and contrived wittiness got on my nerves.
The book is outrageously mistitled. It most certainly will NOT teach you "how to attract anyone, anytime, anyplace"!!! It doesn't even pretend to teach you that. No book could.
I was hoping for more ice breakers and conversation starters. I already know not to stare at a woman's body or stare at somebody across the room too long, not to brag about myself, take an interest in her, be a good listener, etc. The very few conversation starters it did give were pretty lame. I mean, who's going to walk up to somebody and ask "what's an adventure you've had that stands out in your mind?"
This book was very good, though. I don't know what the person who gave it a 2 was thinking (or if he/she was thinking at all). The book teaches a lot about body language, and good ways to gauge the actions and reactions of the person one is flirting with. Personally, I learned a lot about how to deal with rejection, and how to get past the initial "hello." The book explains things called "flirt props" that one can use to approach and be approached. Without a doubt, I'd recommend this book to any of my friends who complain about their dating life.
For example: One particular problem i've always had was eye-contact. This book helped me solve my problem, because what i always did was stare at a girl like she was an elephant that just walked into a crowded room. The girl i was after would just sneer at me like I just went potty in her wheaties. To give you a little quick lesson from the book, i learned a valuable lesson by using the term "the flirting triangle", where you imagine an upside-down triangle on the girl's face. The base of the triangle is from each side of her forehead, and the apex of it is at her chin. Being stared at is intimidating, and a big turn-off, but... if you use the flirting triangle, and glance at different areas of her face, you won't scare her off. Don't go lower than the chin! You don't want her to think you're a pervert. Just remember, don't stare!! You'll be left high and dry. The verb to use is GLANCE, for the amount of time it would take you to say "i see you. Do you see me?" Then with eye-contact comes the hello, the convos, the dating, and maybe, the marriage! Ooops! Forgot about the stork after that! Just kidding.
I love this book. So will you! Say goodbye to the old, boring, lonely you, and read this book! You won't be disappointed!
