Review ~ The Rules by Ellen Fein

TITLE: All the Rules: Time-Tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right
AUTHOR: Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider
TYPE: self-help
PAGES: 400
SERIES:  sure

REASON FOR READING: I am a counseling major and it was a required reading to help with relationships

SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
The two bestselling phenomenons now together in one timeless, definitive edition.
In their #1 New York Times bestseller, The Rules, Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider shared their time-tested techniques for finding the man of your dreams. Controversial and effective, these 35 rules changed millions of women's lives all over the world. In their sensational sequel, The Rules II, the authors showed readers how they could follow The Rules in even the most difficult situations.
A simple set of dos and don'ts, The Rules will lead you where you want to be: in a healthy, committed relationship. It recognizes that men are either attracted to you or not—and that they want a challenge, not an easy victory. Although they sound old-fashioned and tough, The Rules will bring out the best in you and the men you date. The goals? Marriage, in the shortest time possible, to a man you love, who loves you even more than you love him.
Whether you're eighteen or eighty, a beauty queen or a woman with ordinary looks, The Rules will work for you.

I am not sure what I think about this book. It had a lot of good ideas and even some promise but I feel that some things lacked. I think even though it stressed not to play games that it really was one big game. Now don’t get me wrong I am single and I understand that letting him come up to you is a good idea I mean who doesn’t want to be chased or sought. That being said a lot of the ideas it had just kind of rubbed me wrong. Like they said not to answer his call right away, or that you shouldn’t stay on the phone longer than 5 minutes the reason is to appear to be busy and have a life… Okay good in theory but what if you really don’t have a life? And why is 5 the magical number. I honestly think that I would actually like to see more research on this book before I am sold and recommend it to clients.

Are you keeping it or passing it on? passing

Would you recommend this book? I don’t think I would.
