Format: Paperback
Y'know how they say that if you give a monkey a typewriter, given enough time it would write the complete works of shakespeare?

Well - the monkey needs more time on the typewriter I'm afraid.

This trashy book (look at the cover ffs) promotes the manipulation of men by women who deem themselves 'good'. The author clearly intends that men are not sentient beings, capable of controlling their own destiny and choosing their partner themselves. Instead, we are told that women must manipulate men into doing the right thing i.e. them.

The author has displayed a contempt for orderly research (pssst, search "Carole Lieberman and video games") instead preferring to make wild assumptions about things she does not understand.

This 'work' is an enemy of examined living.

It is truly troubling that such a book could be released, a book that promotes being BAD as a way to attract men. Is it not clear that it would just attract BAD man. Maybe that has something to do with the increases in rape. THINK ABOUT IT

Format: Paperback
This book is problematic in a number of ways. First off it is incredibly sexist. Contrary to the author's belief men are actually people too. We aren't a bag of flesh to manipulate or to lead around like a toy or a status symbol.

Which leads me on to my next criticism. This book outrightly ENCOURAGES women to pick up rougher men, the kind that have reputations for violence against other males, or are known to be 'a bit hard'. This is where the biggest problem lies, by encouraging younger girls to outrightly seek AND THEN MANUPULATE 'bad boys' she is almost directly influencing violent situations and potentially encouraging young women to get in to relationships where domestic abuse would be commonplace.

This woman isn't a feminist, she's a dinosaur under the impression that a woman can only be of any worth if they have a man at their side (and a violent man at that). What kind of role model can she be when she encourages young women to live their lives only by what men and other women think of them? Some feminist eh?

Bad Girls' will have a devastating influence on the youth of the world. Children as young as 9-years-old are being exposed to this text.

I can state with certainty that any increase in crime rate that may have been noted near your hometown can be attributed in large part to the authorship of this book.

Format: Paperback
Can you trust the advice of an author - particularly in the context of love/life choices - who will readily spout unresearched, biased, and cut-to-fit views when a major news corporation comes calling for a quotable?

This book is as bad as the self help books for men that claim nice guys can't succeed in relationships. It's just as sexist, just as wrong, and just as negative.

Consider: are people more likely to be manipulated into bad behaviour by a pop psychology book which promotes immoral behaviour as a lifestyle choice in order to achieve a desirable goal, or an entertainment that is deliberately facile, shallow, and probably not even that good*?

The influence of media on abuse of any kind can't be attributed "in large part" to any one source, but I think the insidious influence of texts like these can be harder to detect and harder to rectify.

*I'm sure you all know what I'm on about.

Format: Paperback
I must say after reading the book i felt it my duty to wanr others against such drivel, and generally away from Ms Lieberman herself. The horrible negative effects this book is having on society, particularly a direct link to an increase in rapes, is ruining the world today. Its writers like these that need to re-evaluate their lives and stop telling us how to live ours

Format: Paperback
The book is poorly written and gleefully encourages women to pretend to be bad girls in order to get men, and later just cast the men aside.

Here's a quote from a recent professional review of the (well does it really deserve to be called a book) "Violent books like Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets have the potential to send the message that violence and insults with sexual innuendos are the way to handle disputes and problems"

DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON THIS DRIVEL.

Format: Paperback
It's a disturbing notion that a psychologist advises women to be deceitful to men & manipulate them. This text is predominantly pop-psychology, presumably aimed at the particularly low IQ tabloid reading members of the populace.
