Author: Greg Behrendt, Liz Tuccillo
Reason for Reading: I thought this book looked interesting... which I found strange considering I didn't like the movie (and yes for the record I know that I am a minority in that regard)
Summary according to Goodreads:
Everyone can use a daily wake-up call.
Now in bite-size mantras, the abridged empathetic wit and wisdom of the number one New York Times bestseller He's Just Not That Into You will recharge and inspire your dating outlook one wake-up call at a time.
For ages women have come together over coffee, cocktails, or late-night phone chats to analyze the puzzling behavior of men. Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo are here to say that —despite good intentions— you're wasting your time. Men are not complicated, although they'd like you to think they are. And there are no mixed messages.
The truth may be, He's just not that into you.
The truth this book is common sense on a NUMBER of things... and yet as women we need to be reminded of this. The thing I liked the most was the fact it comes from a guys perspective Greg whom actually seems like he has it going on (sounds weird but if he appeared un-educated or worse just out for money this review would've been a WHOLE lot different.)
As it is however, this book had some great pointers. I did learn that if a guy is into me then he will actually ask me out. This whole well he's shy, or maybe he's intimidated crap isn't going to work on me anymore. From now on if he is into me he will ask me no matter how many of my girlfriends are around me.
Other than that I have to say the rest was pretty much common sense. If a guy hits you he's not into you, if a guy won't return your phone call he's not into you, if a guy only wants sex he's not into you, if a guy doesn't want sex he's not into you... etc... you get the point.
It was a quick fun read and had some information that was interesting. I would recommend it if you are looking for some answers to questions but if you possess a good amount of common sense you are not going to get a lot out of this one.
