Publishers WeeklyIn this scattershot celebrity self-help, actress Hewitt puts an irreverent but unconvincing personal spin on The Rules. Hewitt muses on her personal experience as a "serial dater," drawing lessons and telling tales from her extensive experience with romantic disappointment. Too often, that results in overgeneralization-the three types of men (macho, metrosexual, and heroic), the 17 stages of relationship (from "the eye contact" to "the engaged")-or unfocused, supremely unhelpful anecdotes (cheering herself after a break-up by un-ironically getting her "hoo-ha" adorned with Swarovski crystals). Advice, what there is, is largely vague and of secondary importance, recycling familiar approaches to respecting oneself in mind and body and keeping your man on his toes; first and foremost, the book's subject is Hewitt, which should limit its appeal to her most ardent fans.
