This review is from: Always Hit on the Wingman: ...and 9 Other Secret Rules for Getting the Love Life You Want (Hardcover)
This book was really, really good.
I received it today, and finished it within a couple of hours. It is a good, enjoyable read. It was funny, honest and well written.
I havent really read a lot of the Jake columns, not a regular reader of Glamour, but I will be now!
The book left me feeling - wait for it - empowered! It made me feel great. Its horrible that I needed a book to tell me what I should already know - that I am awesome (woo!) and if I am dating a guy that doesnt see that, I shouldn't stick around.
The book is basically promoting being yourself - something we hear lots of, but somehow still ignore? Its so true though. I know so many women, me included, that will setlle for dirtbags and losers because we either think its all we can get or we convince ourselves we can change them or that they'll eventually want the things they say they dont want now.. if that makes sense. The book was a really good, fun read, and there probably wasnt any rock my world new advice that I hadnt heard before, but its always nice to get it from a male's perspective! It seemed to really hit me this time - be myself, respect myself, and understand that guys are crazy different from us girls. There were so many girls mentioned in the book that I could identify with, and definitely a lot of the guys sounded a bit familiar.
I would definitely recommend this book for single girls, girls in new relationships, married, men - whatever! Its very insightful and fun and uplifting. Now to hopefully remember all the good advice and implement it next time a dirtbag hits on me or treats me in a way that is less than I deserve.
