You be amazed about what you can write about. This book is just nothing but cheap stereotypes. The world is simply too broad and has too many types of people for one single personality to come out. Unlike most asians i'm not going to go onto a Tirade saying "Yeah those Asianphiles they are rejects from White society that's why they have to hit on our women" It's just not an accurate book. This dating guide is like a lot of business books out there. They will give you strategies but no book can ever help you get a date or make money. It's all you and your confidence. This is just as inaccurate and low depth as the Asian men guide to dating white women. Books like this are going to offend people no matter what. If anything this book is more of a joke gift for a friend. It really shouldn't be taken seriously.

The tips in this book work on only one woman - the author, Ming Tan.

I was hoping for something a little more....reassuring. In other words, I was hoping for a book that would reassure me that I didn't need to worry myself stupid about how I looked or how much money I made. Tan seems to think that all men out there can suddenly turn into "professionals", slip into trendy and pricey men's fashions, become instant scholars and intellectuals, and then get all buffed up at the gym in a prohibitively short time---all this so they can be attractive to Asian women. In other words, Tan puts forth the idea that ALL Asian women want is a GQ Model with a Joe Wieder body and at least a Master's Degree in something. Wait a minute....I thought this was what AMERICAN WOMEN WANTED.

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".

As an ABC (Australian Born Chinese), if I found out that a guy I was dating was reading this book, I'd dump him in an instant. Why? I'd rather be viewed as an individual than categorized into this exotic, shy, submissive, tea-drinking, rice-making, family-respecting, money-hungry "Asian female". Congratulations on making a quick buck out of perpetuating this stereotype, objectifying Asian females, and playing into Asian fetishists.

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.

A little disappointed...I had much better luck with the book "How to Attract White Women." However, Ming Tan's book did get me more dates than "How to Attract Insane and Hateful Women Who Very Much Resemble Ann Coulter."

I am an asian guy - filipino, actually - and i've been around asian women of various ethnicities all my life: friends, classmates, co-workers, and acquaintances. As I looked through this book at a local bookstore, I couldn't help but laugh at what was written in it. This book is as reliable a source of info as the tabloid newspapers you see while waiting in line at any grocery store. You don't need to follow this book's advice to be successful with asian women.

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!

"Asian Americans are everyone's favorite minority but their own." - Reed Ueda.

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.

Imagine a bar or coffee house in San Francisco frequented only by Asian women. One of the girls starts up a conversation about how, the other day, a white guy approached her and initiated contact by asking her if she speaks English. They all erupt into a cacophony of high-pitched screeches, laughter and angry mutterings. One of the women is seated in front of a computer with Internet access and she is pulling up US Census data and other descriptive statistics on each related topic, as it emerges, in order to lend an air of scientific validity to their personal experiences. Further imagine that someone is recording the entire discussion, along with all the descriptive statistics that were gleaned off the Internet together with the personal stories that were shared that evening. Transcribe the entire recording into a manuscript and you have Ming Tan's "How To Attract Asian Women: An Asian Woman Reveals it ALL."
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.
