"Men may be from Mars and women from Venus, but I'm from the Jersey Shore."—JWOWW
Are you stuck in a relationship with a stage-five clinger? Maybe your date is more like a man-whore than Mr. Smooth. Do guys only call you late at night when they're looking for a quick hookup? The Rules According to JWOWW can change all that.
Famous for both her cleavage-baring tops and her tough-as-nails approach to life and love on MTV's hit show Jersey Shore, JWOWW tells it like it is. And now she's laying down the rules she has learned and lived by on smushing, smackdowns, and standing up for yourself. JWOWW's advice on what she wears to get a guy's attention at the club, how she keeps her man in check, how she maintains her sick body, and what she does to satisfy her guy will have you with a man ready to wife-up in no time.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The kindle version has 9 black and white photos of JWOW semi-sexy...there's one in a bikini with a beach ball but another perched on a stool wearing a club dress sipping a cocktail and showing off some great legs. It's pretty clear the book is for young women (18-28) give or take. She uses the "f-word" and other "bad words" but the book is written in such a way it sounds like your girlfriend talking and you hardly notice it and almost want to laugh after you've read it.
There are 60 rules and they are split up into 9 Chapters, Smushing, Beauty, Body, Stylin', It's Over, Relationships, Dating, and On the Prowl. Each section varies in the number of rules it has. In the introduction there is a short vocabulary lesson or "Shore Speak" but if you watch the show you have some idea what words mean but it clarifies some others.
The chapters are set up like this; you first read the rule then get the reasons behind the rule. She goes into detail talking about the kinds of guys you can come across and the best way to handle them. While she says who she would go for, she still keeps an open mind about if this is the guy for you. Sprinkled throughout the book are "Dear JWOWW" letters that she responds to giving advice.
Topics covered in book include:

Part of me wishes there were two versions of this book. One version would be geared towards young girls- teens and maybe even some preteens. I like how she preached self respect and self esteem a lot. I think much of what she says could go to heart for a young girl reading this....and that's a good thing.
All in all, not sorry I paid to read it.
I can't remember specifics because it has been so long but I do remember I read it in a few days and found it to actually be a very good funny book.
However, there were a few things that I found a bit unsettling: For one, I was not impressed with the amount of emphasis she put on using vulgar language throughout her book and on showing off certain parts of her body. She would have gotten her point across just as much as if she had used an alternative choice of words, and of course, some people don't mind showing off certain parts of the body, but that should not be the most important thing (it was like she was saying how important it is to have a guy like you for you, while she's talking about wearing tight clothes and showing some cleavage). The last thing I was not impressed with was the guy she called "Mr. Perfection" -- and then at the end of the book talked about how she was not always happy with him and how she didn't know what the future would hold. Why would you call him Mr. Perfection in your book if you were going through a difficult time? You could have simply called him "Mr. Boyfriend" or even an alternative name like "Steve" or "John". Mr. Perfection sounded a bit extreme -- especially since she waited until the end of the book to call out about the difficulties they do have in the relationship.
