Claiming that the book is backed by sociological studies and that it contains confidential testimony from thousands of people attending her seminars, Lowndes attempts to assure us that this is serious stuff. However, a read through the contents list alone (63 chapters crammed into 300 or so pages with an intro!) will have you chuckling and smiling. In fact the contents list might give you all the tips you need: "What about turning a friend into a lover?2 or "Beauty is as beauty feels", and even "The making of a star: me!"
Given the hazy premise that fear, uncertainty and doubt are at the root of not being liked (Lowndes calls it the FUD factor) and with tips like sprinkling your conversation with "uh huh" when speaking to a woman, it is easy to dismiss this as superficial pap. However, Lowndes does have the gift of the gab, and combined with short sections, plenty of tips and soundbites, this is certainly a quick, easy read. It might even win you a few admirers--if that's what you really want. --Lorna V.
