From the Back Cover

"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.

I recently became a Jersey Shore fan, thanks to MTV's marathon reruns of the previous seasons. JWOWW has shown she has a pretty level head on her shoulders so when I heard her book came out, I rushed to here to download it to my phone and am currently reading it. She starts off saying this is the life she chooses and it doesn't mean the readers should do the same thing; she doesn't claim to be a role model.
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:

Guys we meet: the man whore, the Guido, the cheater, Mr.

I'm 33, and obviously this book is geared to a younger audience. Still, I thought it was a cute book and got a kick out of reading it. It's written in a conversational style and it's easy to blow through in a couple of hours. I'm always surprised that Jenni is as young as she is...her wisdom at her age makes her seem much older. JWOWW is an interesting character on the Jersey Shore, and this book provided a few more insights into her personality.

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.

So yes, I bought this book a while back and forgot to review it oops! This is a good book, everything is very helpful and easy to find.
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.

Like many books on the market, there were some positives and negatives. I found it to be a light and easy read, just something fun and enjoyable without needing to exert too much thought and effort, and I even found some of her advice, while cliche, to still be entertaining and useful in many situations (such as eating right, exercise, and dressing well for confidence). I also enjoyed her upbeat and optimistic style of writing.
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.

This book was not as bad as I thought it would be. I received it as a gift, and even though I smiled and said it was just what I had been wanting, I was skeptical. Once I started reading, I got sucked right in. Despite the party girl facade, there is actually some solid, sensible advice lurking in these pages, delivered with a little Jersey attitude. It was a light, entertaining read, and when I was done I had a curious urge to go buy some bronzer.
