The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I'm a Love-aholic by Jennifer Love Hewitt

For any woman who has ever bought a self-help book and wondered why she bothered. (P.S. Now that I know he's just not that into me, where do I go from there? Yeah, thanks for that advice.)

Jennifer Love Hewitt is a self-proclaimed "love-aholic" and hopeless romantic (her middle name is Love, after all!). She has been lucky and unlucky in love, and lived to tell--and she's done it all in the spotlight. Much has been written about her love life--some true, most made up to sell magazines. Now Hewitt shares the real story of what she's learned navigating the dangerous dating waters.

In The Day I Shot Cupid, Hewitt offers her hard-won wisdom and tells us how to embrace love with both feet on the ground. First, we have to shoot Cupid. We have to believe that happily-ever-after is hard work--it's not all flowers and symphonies and floating hearts.

Wise and wry and refreshingly honest, Hewitt talks about how to pick the right guy and how to know when to let the wrong ones go free, and she offers some surprising truths about the opposite sex.

From twenty things to do after a breakup, to ten things to do before a date, to the perils of text flirting (Note: You are waiting. By the phone. For his response.), Hewitt uses stories and dating secrets to illustrate the idiotic, romantic, crazy, depressing, hilarious, awkward, glorious moments we all experience in relationships. Funny, quirky, and empowering, The Day I Shot Cupid deserves a place on every woman's nightstand, bookshelf, or coffee table, or tucked inside her oversized designer handbag.

I must say, I've read a few "Self-Help" books in my time. Usually, I'll read about halfway through and honestly, get bored and slam it shut. It gets exhausting, reading psycho-babble from professionals that want to tell you how to be in relationships or whatever else they may think they know. Jennifer Love Hewitt does an amazing job depicting what love is like, her experiences, and her views. She doesn't say "Be like this" or "Don't be like this" she only offers her opinions and experiences. I have to say this is by far the best "Self-Help" book I have ever read. It is not only inspiring, but it is a terrific pick-me-up even for those self-conscious girls out there that are already in relationships. It's not only about how to handle breakups and what to do when dating, it also tells you a little about how to be comfortable in your own skin. I would recommend this to any woman at any age.

Gives you some insight and answers into JLH's dating/love life. Some funny and relateable stories and depending on the reader, some good advice. It was very light reading almost like a short essay. There were some points, however I didn't agree with as they sounded too jaded.

In her first attempt as an author JLH's captivating personality radiates through every chapter. JLH provides women with various insights; from the art of vagazzaling to twenty tips to surviving a breakup. JLH lends voice to the complex and at times funny world of dating in your 30's. Much attention has been played to her physique and JLH demonstrates her ability to find humor through the curvaceous self portraits found at the beginning of each chapter. Her ex-beau Jamie Kennedy dedicates a chapter to the female derriere. Although the book seems geared to women, the section entitled Fun Little Extras offers dating advice to both sexes. The Day I Shot Cupid is an enjoyable read, but it does leave you wondering, who exactly was the inspiration for the chapter entitled Skid Mark?

So much better than "He's Just Not That Into You" because it explains what to do after you already know that! She did a fabulous job in writing this book. It was a great investment and I think every woman should own a copy.

I really like this book its perfect for younger girls who barely started dating or who are already in relationships. I like her point of views on how to maintain a relationship its realistic and can be very helpful to those who aren't that great with relationships. Its a little short but it was meant to be a small book so you can go back and reference it just for fun. Also its a very easy read and I think most people will find her endearing.

I got through this book in no time, it is very easy to read, and most of it kept my interest. Although I am not sure why someone who is writing about her bad relationships lets her current boyfriend write a section of said book. It was also the most annoying section: it went back and forth between him and her. Luckily he is only a short part of it, and she is much funnier than him. All in all, I am not sure I am happy about how much I paid for the book, since it was such a quick read. I was a sort-of fan of JLH before, and now I can appreciate she is a real person, and seems like a really nice girl you could actually be friends with.

This book is amazing; it really helped me put my life in perspective, not just my love life but the rest as well. The perspective in which the book is written is as if JLH is conversing with you rather that you reading her thoughts. That point of view really aided in my absorption of the incredible information that this book holds, because it wasn't like having someone tell me what they think I'm doing wrong in life. This book also helped me increase my self esteem by a lot. I am forever grateful to JLH. This book can be helpful to both men and women of adult ages. It isn't too long and is a surprisingly upbeat book.

I got this book right after a big breakup with a boyfriend, hoping it would lift me up a little. Boy, i was wrong. It was boring, dull and reminded me of a what a third grader would write. I expected it to be in chapters, nothing huge, but a normal book. Instead, it was a mix of lists and tiny paragraphs that went on a rant. NOT worth the money in my eyes. The things I write in her book my grandma could have told me. In her "What not to do after you break up" one option was to not call him, no duh. Ladies, or even men, move on past this book.. unless you want something to add to your bookshelf to make it look cool.

i've always been a fan of jennifer love hewitt. after reading the book i realized this is what almost every woman goes through. even celebrities! her stories were similar to mine and gave me a new outlook on love & relationships. although most of the advice given is common sense. makes a great gift for your girlfriends.

the book is the best thing that an actress can very wrote a book. I love to read it. It is sometime hard to put the book down. Love it very much. Jennifer Love Hewitt is the best writter for an actress to write about her self and the relationships that she has had and the idea to help other women who need a good time when it comes to reading a book about rlationships. I love the book and the writter.

THis was a good read to remind ourselves as women that sometimes we just have to let go and move forward. Not to be so emotionally expressive and to excercise a little more patience as we enter into new relationships. We are still as foreign to men as they are to us women. Overall I enjoyed the book.

As a interpersonal and relational communications major this book was not based on any scholarly information on relationships. I agree that it is more of a self help book if you recently went through a breakup, but many of the information Hewitt gives is inaccurate. For example, she provides a list of positive steps that relationships take, but fails to include the negative steps that are mixed in like fights. The 3 types of men that she lists are very stereotypical. She provides information on how she got over her break up and that it will work for everyone, but that is simply not true. Every person is different and reacts to things differently. Hewitt took her personal experiences and made them into a book, but provided no further research or scholarly evidence to back up anything she says. If you are looking for relationship advice this book will do you no good.

Loved it! I found it so halarious because we all go through it. Half the time we believe we are alone in what we feel, we need to remember that everyone goes through it.

Short, sweet and to the point. This little book is chock full of tips, thoughts and ideas about dating and break ups. As a young lady that is in a relationship, I even enjoyed the reminder to be a little mysterious and to appreciate the good guy that I have in my life. Jennifer Love Hewitt has been in the spotlight from a young age and so has her love life. Through this book she allows the reader a little behind the scenes peek into how she approaches new relationships and endures the break up. Even an ex (Jamie Kennedy) makes an appearance with a chapter on women's rear ends. I loved the women empowerment and the message that we are complete people even if we aren't in relationships. If I didn't live with a boy, this would be the perfect book to put on the back of the toilet to encourage guests to pick up some relationship tips. I would almost compare this to a modern day Rules book where women can go to for the basic tips that a woman should now before, during and after a relationship.
