He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo

He’s Just Not That Into You is mainly written by self-proclaimed "bad guy" Greg Behrendt who was a consultant on the show "Sex and the City". He bluntly explains why men act the way they do and how women should interpret their actions. We also get the female version through Liz Tuccillo’s words (also a consultant for SATC). What I liked most about this book is that the authors never make the reader feel as if they have to change who they are in order to snag a guy. This book is about learning how to deal with the men in your relationships and realizing when the time has come to cut your losses and just move on.

Overall, a great insight into the way a man’s mind works and also a hilariously funny read. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions!

Although this book is a self-help book (which did not really apply to me), I can say that I learned one thing from it and that was to realize how much my husband was really into me when we were dating and still is after 10 years.

Some parts that I thought were great:
"My favorite innocent words and phrases that can be used for evil:
1. " I would never do anything to intentionally hurt you"
2. " Fear of Intimacy"
3. " Busy"
4. " Im not ready"
5. "Call me''
True meaning: He does not really like you!"

" Women don't need to plot, scheme, and beg to get someone to ask us out. We are fantastic."

A definite must read for any single girl out there that could use a little inside information and a push in the right direction.

Great review and the title is catchy, but I am not sure it's the book for me. Maybe if I were younger...a LOT younger...lol!

I read this book sooo long ago when it first came out. I lent it to a friend and never saw it again!

I liked it.

Oh, I read that book last year and I can only recommend it! It was hilarious to read and helpful at the same time :-)
I later saw the movie and liked that one as well, although I think the book is more fun.
