Our customer reviews

Although this book seems like it should be read by women, it's actually a very good book for straight guys as well. I've read many books or magazine articles about what women want, and few of them convey it as well as this book. Essentially the book suggests women follow a given set of rules which make the man do all the work and that they play hard to get. Not only does this hit the nail on the head in terms of winning over someone willing to commit, it also helps guys understand more of what women are after (a witty hunter as opposed to a wussy onlooker). In addition, the general jist of the rules can be used by Men to be successful with Women. By being not needy, as well as a bit mysterious and elusive, you become naturally more attractive and hence more successful. Of course, the book does have some downsides, in the form of the naive this-book-will-change-your-life-and-make-you-a-paragon-deity tone. It also gets a little silly towards the end when they start half-heartedly inventing rules for every single aspect of life, although the idea clearly doesn't stretch. However, I seriously rate this book, as I think it is a good model for the ideal woman (in-demand yet not promiscuous). And for Men, it gives great insight on what you are looking for and how to attain more
