Horrifically triggering & misogynist

This is an atrocious book. While the author sometimes disagrees with the awful bullshit she spouts, it's not worth it. Gems like describing how the insult "She's so skinny she has to wear snowshoes in the shower" has now become a compliment, indirectly referring to an eating disorder as "disgusting," and (jokingly?) referring to women as the "weaker" sex are all in poor taste. This book is far more harmful than helpful.

Way too much fluff for my taste.

I couldn't listen to the audio book for more than 10 minutes at a time. I just wished the author would just get to the point... also the voice acting was too much for me. I will try other books with similar title.

Good info

This audio was a bit drawn out but definitely has usable information. I’d really suggest reading the book or be prepared to take notes while listening. There is a lot of information that’s impossible to retain all in one sitting.

Good info, but drawn out.

The book has good info, but the story is boring, how its told is enthusiastic, and it could be shortened. I would like to finish the book, but I've had to stop due to the fact it could keep me. info given is valuable, but the book told keeps me at bay. if you dont mind a boring book, and you want the info. get it.

Was this written in the 1950s?

Was this written in the 1950s? Women, just bat your eyelashes and play helpless so your men can rescue you. Men, don’t be too affectionate with your guy friends or you’ll lose your rep as a “skirt-chaser.” Yikes. The constant barrage of heteronormative gender roles finally got the best of me. DNF.

Mixed feelings

She’s the expert, but in some chapters she seems to be telling guys to not take no for an answer. Having to be coerced is not playing coy or hard to get. Telling guys that is antiquated and dangerous.

Rambling with weird ideas about male female relationships

The author just rambles about her own personal experiences and the stories are neither good examples of principles nor are they entertaining. She has some strange ideas about male/female relationships which continually seemed to be the topic of the book.

Not her finest work

Unfortunately I did not feel like the book matched her previous work. Usually her books have more aha moments. Not many of those in this one.
