5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining - she knows how men think!, 6 Mar 2012
First of all let me start by saying that this book only applies to decent guys who ultimately want to be in a relationship. Second of all, the word BITCH stands for a woman who wants to be with a man because she CAN, not because she needs him. One whose life does not revolve around his schedule, or his phone call, or him! She has her own life, and chooses to have him be a part of hers. This is the ultimate message in this book - what men really want is a girl who can hold her own so she can keep his interest and his imagination flowing. If she becomes needy and clingy, she looses her 'sassiness' and becomes predictable, she is no longer a turn-on to him and he moves on to the next girl faster than the speed of light.

Some brief examples I loved in the book:
(1) How men and women think completely differently when they first start dating: the woman sees herself in a wedding dress next to him, and the man sees her naked next to him. He will say any and everything he has to say to get you to bed, so don't believe half the things he says to you before you have sex with him. Only start believing after you've done it a couple of times - and don't give up the goods too fast otherwise he'll think it's a candy store open for business (there's a whole chapter on giving the goods). If he's still around after sex, then you know he's into you. To keep him around after sex...well, you need to read this book :)
(2) In the beginning, HE should be the one to call because HE is the one doing the pursuing. HE should be the one paying the bill because HE is the one who asked you out - and you shouldn't feel bad if the bill is high because you are a total babe worthy of a nice date, even if it's expensive. Once you get into a relationship this could change, but you also need to be really careful with finances and men. The financial dependancy thing is not good because then he'll be the one calling all the shots and you have little to no control or say in the relationship (there's a whole chapter on financially independent women).
(3) And another thing that stuck with me is that you should never plan your day around his phone call - he shouldn't be calling you with last minute plans anyways (although she mentions that spontaneity is nice sometimes). Make your evening plans as you would if he were not in your life - don't not go to a movie with a girlfriend, or to your yoga class, or to happy hour, or whatever, because you are waiting for his call. If he calls, simply tell him you had made previous plans and can't make it that night. He will feel bad and next time he will call earlier to make sure you haven't made any plans yet.

It has great tips and comparisons on what a 'nice' girl would do and what the 'bitch' would do. All of us girls will relate to one or the other - the secret is to always be the bitch (babe in total control of herself) and don't let him step all over you. It applies to all women: single, in a relationship and even married ones. This is really a great book and I am sure I will go back to some of the chapters and read them again as my romantic life progresses. There is some great advice here, but you can't take all of it too seriously, remember the person who wrote it is a comedian. For example there's a fake orgasm bit which I personally don't recommend any woman to do it (neither does Sherry). If a guy isn't able to satisfy you he should know there's room for improvement - faking the orgasm will make him think he's "got it" and he won't work half as hard next time (if he's still around for a next time). So, don't take everything in the book to heart, using this book really depends on the guy and on the situation. But it is very well written and keeps the reader engaged, so I highly recommend it!

Love Dave Chapelle, he's hilarious! He pushes the envelope on racism but it's the reality of America so you just have to laugh about it. Genius!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, 8 Feb 2011
This review is from: Good Hair [DVD] (DVD)
It's a great look at Afr. American women's relationship with their hair, and how the hair products industry has grown and is constantl in demand. It's got the Chris Rock touch so it's obviously funny. I learned a few things: that you can never touch a black girl's weave/hair, that most hair comes from an Indian temple, and that girls as young as 3 or 4 are already relaxing their hair. Good movie/docu, great value!
