I get that men love an elusive girl and it's a delicate dance to keep him interested but some of the advice in this book just goes against creating a foundation for a long term relationship; for example, the author suggests in Chapter 10 How to Stop Texting Once You Start to tell him "The keypad is to sensitive, you don't like squinting at the screen, you can't stand creative spelling..you don't want to chip your nail polish!" Seriously? But in Chapter 20 the first sentence states that responding to a voicemail with text is a great idea, since "less is more." That's just one example, there's more! Then there's all these one-offs and exceptions, it just gets ridiculous.
I would think all of this advice was fluff, but there is a section at the end of each chapter asking you questions about how this theory applied to your last relationship. You find out that you thought you were doing right was actually what lost you the chase. Good way to apply the texting rules to your dating tool box.
I'm not sure how "just leave your phone at home if you are tempted to text" is realistic advice for anyone living in this day and age. While some advice may be good advice for a novice dater with no girlfriends to clue her is (duh...if he calls after 9 PM he just wants a booty call) it is not necessarily just for texting, it's common dating sense.
This book feels like a "reworking" of other dating manuals. Probably ones that in the 80s advised women to let the answering machine pick up to give the illusion you are busy.
Ladies, buck up on your self esteem and stop playing games. It's a really unhealthy way to start a relationship. Few relationships where you have to manipulate who has the "Power" are going to last. Give this book a miss.
