Second, it has no substance. The chapters are about a page long (some only a few words long) which states the tip and then a few paragraphs about the tip that says nothing more than what the tip said. The book basically could have been a list of 66 tips- nothing more nothing less. This book is a 20 minute waste. There are far better books.
Most of the info, were about things I already knew. But alot of the tips were VERY informative and helpful, expecially to a woman who quickly falls in love or is too quick to jump into a relationship. Some of the info I didn't agree with, like never admiting to have had more than 5 sex partners. However for the most part, the tips were great, and even I learned quite a bit of things. & this is comming from someone who is known to "think like a guy". It's a great book for someone in their late teens through twenties. But, older readers will probally find the information found in the book rather silly or conniving.
Secondly, and most importantly, the book encourages lying and changing yourself. Perhaps the silliest tip is the one that advises that you not own a dog that can fit in your purse. Perhaps I'm being biased, as I have a dog that can (though I never put him in one), but this just smacks of changing oneself for the sake of others ("I can't let anyone think I'm like Paris Hilton, so time to get a Labrador for the apartment"), and implies that all small dog owners are shallow, silly, and female. If a man cannot stand small dogs and refuses to give one a chance, you don't need to be dating him.
Which leads to my last gripe about this book: it relies too heavily on stereotypes, as if most women have no career aspirations, or go around saying "that's hot" like Paris Hilton... Perhaps the author doesn't think this, but she revolves an awful lot of her tips around these, to which I replied, "well duh, you shouldn't do that..."
I only give this book two stars because a handful of the tips were actually good, if mostly obvious, such as waxing and not cursing--strangely enough, the tips that supported something more feminine.
