THE RULES WORK
Also, girls- DON'T SLEEP WITH THEM RIGHT AWAY!!!! I see so many girls do this and all the guy does is try to get more off of you adn then tell his friends and then they try and hit on you! ESPECIALY, if you like the badf boy types- like me! DON't do it! Every bad boy wants a prim and proper lady, sexy with class and style and yes a tiger in the bedroom, but Wait TO DO THIS!!!
Another good book is Men are from Mars and Women from Venus! Men really do not think like we think and we start spilling our guts and get emotional they RUN!!!!! FAST!!!!!! Play the rules and it is not a game persay- it is being confident in yourself and only doing what a man really is attracted to by his animal instinct! Good Luck- we all deserve to be happy!

As a man who is very enlightened, self-actualized, deeply spiritual, self-empowered, and emotionally healthy I do not desire women who are mysterious and manipulative. I desire women who are self-actualized, confident in their sexuality, monogamous, highly intelligent, and aggressive...without being abusive. When I get a hint that a woman is using this ridiculous junk on me, I bail quick after I look down the road, and see divorce coming before I even start learning about her. This book only works on men who are weak and stupid. When a man gains a decent degree of control over his sex drive, this book, and any one like it, becomes obsolete.
A word of advice to all of my fellow men: the less you know about a woman, the faster you need to run from her...no matter how fine she looks. Just think, there are women out there who are just as fine, but are also emotionally healthy and emotionally honest. Take the time to learn about a woman's character, intelligence, and spiritual center. Do you want an unintelligent, gutless, and non-spiritual woman raising yours and hers children? How will you know any of this, unless you get to know her on a deep level? How can you get to know her if she's acting mysterious and manipulative? I am not afraid to show the world who I am, so I will not hide my pen name. Peace out.

men have gotten wise to the rules
I have both read the book and been subjected to these silly manipulative techniques. Unfortunately, if you're not sincere and kind and implement them with respect and care, they will not work for you. Men these days know about them and can recognize them when they are applied like a robot is doing them. And, men have come up with countermeasures, their own rules to screw up the rules and cause them to fall apart fast. My favorite, is don't call them, hardly return their calls. What do I do? I leave a message to say... aww, sorry I couldn't reach you, I have tickets to this really great show 'fill in your favorite of favorites'. I get the reservations and without fail, they return that phone call right away and all other ones from there out. Why? Because now I am manipulating them. But why bother playing games with someone's heart and emotions. Sure, they CAN work if you know how to artfully apply them, mix them up, don't follow them like a robot. Be sincere about it. Basically they are advising you to look like you have a busy life. But if we find out you didn't have a good reason to do the stuff you did, you're history. Men don't like to be artificially manipulated. If we find out, it's over. Both authors failed in their marraiges, that should be proof they don't work perfectly. In the end, it is the connection that matters.

I would not apply this litterally!
Well, this book is very interresting...I am not sure about the practical advices. It may work at large if you direct it to more conventional people but I doubt it's a foolproof recipe. 'I', for myself, would not like to taste it . But then there are those love starved women (some don't even know about their condition!) who allow men to take over full control of their love life and feelings and then will never manage to get anything back. The bottom line with this book is that one can exercise much more control over the relationship and just be better off. I hoped I would get more mature advices about doing it; that it would not be about playing games...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

One man's view
I am a single, professional man and have read the Rules book. There is much truth in this small volume. However, I would strongly recommend to the authors that they revise the 'rarely return phone calls.' Change it to 'sometimes' or 'don't always' rather than 'rarely.' Or at least the woman should make clear to the man that this is her policy for every man and not personal. There are a lot of quality men who will turn away if their calls are rarely returned with no explanation. I am one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
