I did feel that the original rules needed updating, I remember being single when texting and emailing was big and think I did this rule rather well, I've now been married 7 years. I think the general guidelines about facebook, tweeting and texting is very good but my main criticism about this book is how they say men only like women with long blonde, straight hair and must wear hooped earrings and a large gold watch. I am a short haired brunette and managed to find love just like many others, and never wished to wear hooped earrings and large gold watches. Please!!!! There is someone out there for everyone and you just have to be the best you can and dress in a way that flatters your individual shape and size, after all, wouldn't it be boring if we were the same and on an online dating profile men would have to wade through thousands of long haired blondes who all looked similar! Sorry but I can only give this book 3 stars because of this particular chapter, otherwise there are some very good pointers in it.

Ok, so I heard amazing things about this book and recently read a book that is similar and very empowering for women. However as I began reading it not only does it drone on and on for pages repeating the same information before getting to the point, I found this book was not suitable for women NOT of a Caucasian background. Under the chapter "looking like a CUAO" these women are telling me (in a nut shell) men love blondes, so straighten your hair, dye it blonde and then it even suggests green or blue coloured contacts!!!! Match it with "a skirt above knee length" and "a top that shows cleavage" and you have . . . well a stripper! I read this book to feel empowered and better about myself, turns out that's not what their selling.

Not all women are blonde with blue eyes and straight hair, that does't mean we are not beautiful. I believe that yes women should make an effort to accentuate their assets but don't change who you are. Wear make up, dress to impress but don't loose yourself in what some people perceive as "CUAO" . . . for those of you who don't fit the description of this book please read "Act like a lady, think like a man by steve harvey" because it applies to all women not matter what you look like!

Everything they say not to do - I was doing! Still trying to adjust and change my behaviour, but I'm already feeling better about myself. A must-read for all those girls who find themselves checking their phones to see if "he" has messaged back yet or wondering why he's not called the day after "the night before".

I really enjoyed this book and have recommended it to a few friends, who are also enjoying not only reading it, but the effects that it has had on thier personal lives. This is not a do everything book, do use your initiative, beliefs and common sense when applying the rules. For the most part I think it teaches self respect, the whole point of the book seems to be a guide on how having your own life is good and when you meet that special someone they need to share that life, not you drop everything to be with them. However, it is meant to be a guide on finding a person and as it says in the book, if you aren't ready to do that, don't.

I found the book useful and informative, certainly makes you see why that man never called you back! Filled me with dating confidence also!

I just love the rules books and I couldn't of been happier when I seen they had written one for the 'digital' generation. These women really do know what they are talking about and trust me these rules really do work.. Live by them!!!

Brilliant book! Every woman should read it! Bought it for my 14 year old daughter, as I wish id read it 30 years ago. It could have saved a lot of heart ache! You realise your mistake as soon as you start reading it. Live by the rules girls, you are never to old to learn!

The ultimate guide to dating- this blows all other dating books out of the water. I and so many others followed the rules & are now happily married. I'm going to give my daughter a copy when she starts dating: every woman needs a copy of the Rules. Don't waste your money on other dating guides- this is the best!

I didn't like this book. I found it too rigid. I don't think that these rules will necessarily lead to a happy love life. There are so many variables in life, nothing is simply black or white. This book treats dating as some sort of mathematical equation....if you are 30 years old you must wait 4 hours to reply to a text.....? Hmmm I think this is a strange way to approach dating. I would instead recommended reading "He's Just Not That Into You" and "It's Just a F*#king Date" both by Greg Behrendt. These books aren't about playing games, they're about finding and maintaining your self respect.
