This is interesting to listen to on its topic, but I have to stop short of wholehearted recommendation. While there are some good perspectives on there for general self respect, it is told in such a way that comes across as a bit bitter in parts. I can't work out why, either, there just isn't the need. She apologises in the beginning, in advance, because she feels she may offend some readers. She swears (the f*&^ word) for emphasis, when really, it would be so much more intelligent to deliver the point without doing that. I wasn't 'offended' per se, just felt she could have delivered more impact and commanded more respect without.
There are several parts to the book which come across as man-hating, even though the point of the book is apparently to find a relationship with mutual respect. There's an example given from the author's own experience, for example, when she found her date 'rude'. She left him in the restaurant and wholeheartedly recommends the reader do the same. Perhaps many would find this good advice? I found it a little immature. There are also a few occasions where she makes assumptions about women in general. As I didn't fit her mould, it suddenly didn't feel as though she was talking to me anymore.
I have listened to Evan Marc Katz and Matthew Hussey who write on the same topic. Both manage to do so without sounding petulant. Both of their books left me feeling positive and energised. Once again, this is not a total bomb, but lacks the lustre it needs to be considered really great.
In a world of so called sexual revolution, this books tells you that woman haven't gone far enough. I highly recommend that every woman should read this and every woman should pass it on to their daughters
"A hilarious read, but take it with a grain of salt"
I have no idea, I have only listened to the audio version.
"Why Men Love Bitches" has most of the same advice worded in different ways.
Her voice seemed to fit well with the content of the book. She kept things interesting.
I like the fact that the book encourages women to move on rather than trying to change a loser. In reality, that's the best thing to do.
As I stated in the headline, you would do best to take the book with a grain of salt. A lot of the tactics that are suggested would not work well in a long term, functional relationship.
That being said, I'd still say that this book has a lot of good advice. Especially with stuff like getting over someone or using birth control. And even without that, this is truly a hilarious and entertaining read. I enjoyed the author's sense of humor and brutally honest way of writing.
"Some good advice, some chapters are skippable"
The first few chapters were great ... reaffirming ideas of self-confidence, earning respect, etc. Chapters surrounding playing the game, being a super dater, having a sugar daddy ... those I skipped altogether. Those chapters were bad advice. The author encourages you to demand respect, set goals, and to not settle for the wrong guys ... but then encourages you to pay the manipulative games that men play with us. I felt that was an oxymoron in the book.
"I wish my mother would have taught me this!"
I listened to this book at 43 years old. I wish I have heard it at 23!!! it would have greatly changed my life and how I deal with men and dating.
"A book for all the ladies"
A cousin recommended it and I have since recommended it to all my friends. Don't be misled by the title, its no porn. Men have mastered the art of charming women, women need to master the art of choosing men
His that not into you.
My mom told me most of this stuff but not as clearly. It all makes sense now. I hate i didnt have this book 25 years ago.
I cringed when I saw the title, (ugggghhh not another dating book) but something inside of me urged me to give it a try. Glad I did, the book turned out to be great! Real, raunchy, straightforward and easy to digest!
"Good narration, good content"
For women only - Shaunti Feldhahn as this too deals with what men are thinking.
This book is not for the easily offended, lots of swearing and she tells it just how it is. Very refreshing!
That your vagina is gold!
"Every woman should read this book!"
This author is soo empowering! She is very frank and does not beat around the bush with her message. I loved that about her!
It doesn't matter your age, if you are having sex or thinking about having sex, you NEED to read this book!
I loved this book so much that I listened to it twice! Her advice is spot on and I loved how frank and to the point she was - I found myself laughing out loud! I learned a lot and will apply the simple advice!
"No new info in this book"
I kind of had high hopes for this book but this is full of relationship advice clichés that you can hear any day of the week on daytime TV. "don't try to change a man". don't call a man back right away" "don't have a stinky pussy" "don't have sex on the first date" that about sums it up. I think this book is a waste of money and less you are 12 years old and know nothing about relationships at all but the amount of cussing makes it inappropriate for a 12-year-old so I don't know of anyone who should read this book. Sorry :(
I've been doing TR and this really opened my eyes and supports a lot of what's in TR. I have 3rd date coming up and this information now sits firmly in my mind.
"Misleading to women"
Women in need of sex more than men. This is can be seen by their dresses and make up and the amount of money they spend on clothing , etc ..There are more women out there than men. Women are in more need to be mothers than men, so they are desperate to get pregnant therefore when uterus used as a game of power, it will be her losses, not his. If women apply the rules in these books, it is likely they reach menopause before they realise it is too late. Women who re not attractive are naturally disadvantaged and with your book, it is made more awkward for them.
Your book encouraging fidelity, because if the woman use the pussy for gaining power, then the man has the right to seek sex outside relationship.
