There really isn't anything new here. The authors, Fein and Schneider, have written several books that all say the same thing: Don't be too easy. Men will treat you like a free hooker if you treat yourself like a free hooker. It's a tough message for both young women today, the primary target audience of this book, as well as older, professional women who are used to going after what they want and not waiting for a man to make all the moves. But that's the message, and it is uncomfortable, irritating, and true with some men. There is no research support for their frequent anecdotes, but there is a great deal of marketing for their rules-dating consultation business. Lastly, relating to the audio version of this book, what were they thinking bringing their daughters in to read? The authors' reading was tolerable enough, perhaps 3 stars. One daughter was only young and unprofessional. But the other daughter was incapable of enunciating clearly. It was horrible, waiting for her little reading to end so my torment could also end. Her reading is a glaring statement against the dangers of nepotism. However, with all my criticisms, which are sincere, I still will make sure my daughter reads this book before going to college. Many young men will not give young women respect; they must demand it. That is the strongest, best message of the book.

This book is brutally honest and that's why I love it!! If you want to be coddled- call your mother, if you want the truth- read this. Before reading this book and others like it, I was a DOORMAT on the dating scene. I'm more attractive than the average woman, have the "right measurements"  And still couldn't keep a good man. They all wanted me- for a month. Then would pull a Houdini act. Once I started reading books like this, I realized what I've been doing wrong- virtually everything! Yes, The truth hurts.. Men want a sexy woman, who's somewhat mysterious, "high status" and has self respect. You can deny it but it won't stop being true. Sadly I see women braking all these rules all the time, I wish  Every woman would read this!

This rule book only is for shallow women interested in attracting a very shallow man for a very surface-type relationship. So disappointed in the book's weight limits for women. Really? I had to do an intervention with a coworker who was traumatized by reading, in this book, weighing 135 was the man-winning weight. I'm PROUDLY a 179-pounder. I'm beautiful. And recently engaged to a wonderful man. Don't waste your money simply to be invalidated by this book. Believe in yourself. Trust there is someone for everyone. Embrace your strengths AND weaknesses. Beauty lies within imperfection.

I am a woman in my mid-forties and I found the rules to be very helpful in pinpointing my dating mistakes. I now know exactly why men have lost interest. There was very little challenge. The book provides great tips in handling today's technology in the dating scene. I find rules 2 & 28 to be inaccurate and insulting. The authors should stay away from giving advice about body types and specifics on appearances. Many men like more curvy women who do not have long blonde hair, botox injections and dress in skimpy clothes. These 2 chapters alone can keep women from having the confidence to be Rules Girls therefore, I can not give this book 4 stars.

I wish I could give this book a HUGE fat ZERO!! So you are only desirable if you have long blonde hair? LOL wow really? Not allowed to pay for dinner or "buy" his love? really? So he has to pay EVERY time? This book is so awful. I'm so sick of these games and women that encourage it. I have beautiful curly red hair and I never had any trouble dating. I never EVER would have played these games. My boyfriend loves me because I am ME! Men really love women that are beautiful (I use this loosely because you are as beautiful as you want to be), confident, successful and drama free. Those are the important things to remember. Let's not play these games ladies, let's be true to him and ourselves! Maybe they should add a section on how to act once you get the man from following these rules.. 1. You must wear a dress and pearls to dinner every night. 2. Set your alarm 2 hours before him to dress and put on full makeup, also cook him a full breakfast. 3. Submit to him in every way, he is the king of the house! Right?
