Okay, maybe I read the book too quickly, or perhaps I misunderstood the overall gist, but I got the disappointing sense that Ming Tan is telling me that meeting Asian is not quite as easy as I was lead to believe. For example, one thing that pissed me off is that she did not give advice on how to bypass the "Study Obsession" program most Asian women possess---this insatiable drive to do absolutely nothing else but study. What? Don't these people do ANYTHING ELSE? I did ask out a Chinese woman, who blankly told me she was just too busy studying. Yeah...okay...great....now how do I get her to change her mind? Oh, and the advice about how to beat shyness in this book is horrendous. Visualize being confident with an Asian woman? Oh...but, what if I'm not a "PROFESSIONAL" with Jean Claude van Damme's physique and Donald Trump's money? Nothing about getting past THAT little obstacle, huh? THAT'S gonna take a trifle bit more than simple "visualizations".Read more ›
My challenge is trying to get people to see BEYOND my race - this book simply thwarts this.
Anyway, this was the funniest thing I've come across in a long-time. Oh, my white boyfriend is calling me from downstairs. He wants me to cook rice for him. I better go, because, after all, I am an Asian female and it is my role on earth to serve men.
And besides, what every asian women looks for in a man isn't at all that different from what a women of ANY race looks for in a man...and that is a guy with a nice thick wallet! You don't need to buy this book...it's totally off the mark!
This is a disgusting, racist premise for all those guys who have "yellow fever", itself an attraction born of a racist premise - that Asian girls are "different". It's even more horrific that it was written by an Asian woman and aimed...well, let's put it this way: It's not aimed at Asian men.
This book is not without merit, especially if you, like me, knew relatively nothing about Asian culture and Confucian philosophy prior to reading it. For example, did you know that Asian people are offended when Caucasians refer to them as "Orientals?" According to Miss Tan, "Asians are people and Orientals are rugs." Having had no prior experience with Asians or Asian-Americans, I was not aware of that particular faux pas and I did find that type of information, as well as a few other scattered tidbits, very useful. However, if you grew up with Asian-Americans, have worked with them or have some prior knowledge of Asian cultures, then this "How-To" manual will not provide you with enough information to justify your investment of money and time. (I asked a 44 year old friend of mine if she had known about the sensitivity of Asians to the term "Orientals.Read more ›
