I wish I could give this book less than one star. First the title: Think like a guy, it doesn't tell you at all how to think like a guy or what guys think. This book only gives you a list of tips on how to be fake with a man. The title should be "Lie, Pretend, and Be Confusing" She actually tells you to change who you are and to play games. Like one tip is to always call *67 so he doesn't know it's you. And one tip is to order out and dirty up dishes so that he thinks you cooked (which isn't fair to those of us who really know how to cook- what girl can complete with take out?) So now what happens in the long term when he finds out that you lied and the betty crocker that he fell in love with is a phony?

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.

This was an easy read, short, and at times funny. Sure it might be good if you are just looking to find a date or a friend with benefits...but if you actually are looking for something quality...dont get this book. All it does it tell you how to lie about yourself or how to act like a guy in ways that us girls hate. I mean if you want to snag a guy by lying to him...marry him and then he finds out it was all a lie...then what? Divorce? I mean...honesty is the best policy and honestly...this book is not worth it.

This is one of the BEST books I have read for hopeless romantics (like me) who are constantly waiting by the phone for the guy to call. She gives a very realistic perspective on what bugs men about women, and how woman can learn to "tone it down a bit". I believe she wrote this a bit tongue-in-cheek, with advice that shouldn't be taken completely literally, but as a good reminder that us women can be a bit obsessive, overkill, and too heart-on-the-sleeve. I highly recommend this book for women who have been left wondering "why didn't he call?" or women who haven't dated much. It DOES help you get into the mind of a guy (regardless of what some of these other reviews say). I think this book is more of a humorous commentary on women in the dating scene than actual step by step advice on finding the perfect man (you can find that in the more boring, serious books). This book had me laughing out loud. Very enjoyable and TRUE! Thanks, Giuliana.

I read the book in one sitting, and I liked it.
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.

What a terrible waste of time and money. This relatively short book is separated into `chapters' telling women how to be more like men - for example: sleep with a guy and leave right after, don't call, lie about your sexual experience, pretend to be busier than you are, order in and pretend you made the food, etc. The `chapters' were each about a page, some even less, because there is clearly no substance behind the writing. Depandi is annoying on tv, and she's even more annoying in the book - from the outset she tells you to look elsewhere if you want a more `edcuated' read. She uses trailer-trash language throughout the pages and doesn't show herself to be either smart or a very good writer. Additionally, she paints herself as a promiscuous woman by constantly making references to her many boyfriends and experiences. Where did the content for the book come from? From her many experiences with men,, so she says. It's obvious why she went through so many men - no decent guy would put up with her and the games she's playing for very long. Her `methods' are ridiculous and will make you a liar from the outset of the relationship. Zero stars.

First off, the logic of the book makes little sense. The author starts off by listing things that girls do and guys don't, implying that most women who do these feminine things (such as coo over puppies and aspire to be housewives) never get/keep men. And yet, she supplies no statistics or even logic to back this up. In a nutshell, she implies that straight men want men with women's bodies. I think most guys would disagree. It's just another book that values masculinity over femininity.

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.
