Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu wrote The Art of War some 2500 years ago, he could hardly have imagined the uses to which it would be put in America today. In the 1980s, it was the bible of corporate executives and investors; now psychotherapist Cowan (Husbands and Wives) and Parent (Sheila Levine Is Dead and Living in New York) offer it as a guide for instructing women in how to win the age-old battle of the sexes and land a husband. Readers who can get past the language of war ("power," "weapons," "self-defense," "attack," "spies," "battle," "strategy," etc.) being applied to romantic relationships are rewarded with some useful commonsense wisdom ("look for patterns in your choices"; "trust your value"; "never count on a man changing"). Much of the sensible relationship advice here is applicable to both genders, but the authors maintain that it is the woman who must secretly "control" and direct the man with "rewards," "punishments" and "tests." With their theories based on some questionable premises about the inherent nature of men and women, Cowan and Parent seem to attempt to head off anticipated criticism by stating that their book's "goals are to be psychologically accurate, not politically correct." For many readers seeking romance, however, what follows may be too reminiscent of The Rules or of Michael Douglas's manipulative, Sun Tzu-quoting character in Wall Street. (Feb.)

    STOP everything and read this book now!!!

    EVERY single woman needs to read this book. It is priceless. Since it is hard to find, borrow one from the library and make notes. I made 20 pages of notes, and now feel ready to go into 'combat'. Make no mistake about it, there is a war between the sexes, albeit a silent one, and she who has the best tactics and strategies will win. Do not be a victim on the battlefield of love.
