Overview

E. Jean Carroll, the popular advice columnist for Elle magazine, comes to the rescue of bright, high-achieving women everywhere with a foolproof program for finding love. In the first Man-Finding, -Catching, and -Captivating Manual for successful women, E. Jean provides a 6-week plan for finding the ideal mate. And here's the best part: Mr. Right, Right Now! is not based on self-help horsehockey. Rather, it's founded on Darwinian principles, cutting-edge scientific research on "synchrony," and ten years of hard evidence provided by thousands of letters sent into the Ask E. Jean column. The Man Catching Theory in Mr. Right, Right Now! has been tested and confirmed on E. Jean's wildly successful dating site GreatBoyfriends.com. So, here's the deal, Doll: If you acquire the right attitude (Week 1) and the right look (Week 2), learn to laugh at your fears (Week 3), place yourself where there are hoards of elite and eligible men (Week 4), get out of your own way and let Mother Nature hurl the chaps at your feet (Week 5), E. Jean guarantees you will live happily ever after (or for as long as you can stand it) with the man of your dreams (Week 6).

First Chapter

Mr. Right, Right Now!
Man Catching Made Easy

3 Simple Reasons the Man
Catching Theory Will Work for
You in 6 Weeks ... or Less

Reason #1

Honey, You Were Born to Drive Men Mad

Mr. Right, Right Now!'s Man Catching Theory (which works so well, it will one day have hair gels, breath mints, and contraceptives named after it) is rooted in the fact that you are already fitted-out by nature to find and seduce a man. You are so designed because Mom Nature wants you out there rollicking and creating new combinations of genes, and Mom gets her new gene-combinations only if men are pestering you for sex in their $3.7-million penthouses.

Don't Believe You're Fitted-Out by Nature to Seduce a Man?

P-shaw!

Let me ask you one question: Have men gone to extravagant lengths over the last 30,000 years to control females' seductiveness with chastity belts, clitoridectomies, foot bindings, veils, purdahs, stonings, the rules of three Big Religions, etc., etc., etc.?

Come on, honey ...

Let me ask you another question: Would chaps around the world, in nearly every country, put this much effort into controlling your attractions if you weren't just unbelievably, incredibly hot?

The Mr. Right, Right Now! 6-Week Plan is going to build on this fact.

And What Are These Natural Attractors That
Drive the Poor Buggers Insane?

They are the same from the Hamptons to the highlands of New Guinea. Women are composed of 100 billion neurons, and when they see a chap they like, the suckers start firing with the express purpose of torturing him. (Evolutionary biologists and anthropologists refer to this torture as "sending signals.")

These signals consist of smiling at a man, looking away, gazing back at him from under your lashes, ignoring him, glancing at him again, giving off an alluring scent, displaying more curves than the Ventura Freeway, walking with an animated fanny, and so on. All these provocative attention-getters help cause the right man to drop in your tracks like a bug on a flystrip.

Needless to say, the Mr. Right, Right Now! 6-Week Plan did not get off the boat with a shawl on its head and will build on these signals.

And Whence Did Your Animated Fanny Spring?

Why, nothing could be simpler. You inherited your ability to find and seduce a man from your foremothers. Let's put it this way: If every single one of your foremothers had not found and seduced a man, you would not be here reading that every single one of your foremothers found and seduced a man. Perhaps this little Time Table will illustrate:

Feeling more confident? Good. The Mr. Right, Right Now! 6-Week Plan is going to build on your confidence. And for an extra little boost, listen to what the famous Rutgers anthropologist and ethologist (a scientist who's interested in the genetic aspects of behavior) Dr. Helen Fisher told me. Not only does she believe the persistence of the opening "courtship pattern" (the gazing, the grinning, the pupil-dilating, the blushing, the breathing, the omigod-omigod-omigod- omigod-omigod speechless thing you naturally do when you meet a man you like) is "inborn," her research has led her to conclude:

"We evolved the ability to fall in love at first sight from all sorts of other creatures. All mammals feel attraction. For example," says Dr. Fisher, "at the beginning of the breeding season a female squirrel must find herself a male squirrel. She can't spend three months looking around. She's got to find one with a rich, furry tail and nice whiskers, and she's got to do it now. So the attraction system evolved to be triggered very rapidly in the brain. And I think we inherited this system from other mammals and from our ancestors. Which means you can walk into a crowded party tonight, see somebody across the room, exchange a few sentences, and fall in love."

And that brings us to the second reason that the Man Catching Theory is going to work for you in 6 weeks, or less:

    REVIEW REVIEW

    I thought a lot of this book was common sense. Things women already know. I read it in 2 days. I too, found the writting style hard to follow. Not much substance for such a 'talked about' book.

    Entertaining but....

    I read this book in about 4 hours...it was quite entertaining, however, provides nothing of substance and the 'guarantee' is clearly bogus. Did have a few good beauty tips. Ladies, don't waste your money on this one...or wait for the paperback version if you just want a few hours of entertainment!

    Waist of money

    I was very disappointed in this book. I found the writing style annoying. If you must read it check it out of the library and save your money.
