From the Back Cover
The Sistahs' Rules gives black women no-nonsense guidelines for landing in a healthy relationship with a Brother Mr. Right - from a sistah who has one. A sistah needs her own special set of rules for finding a guy, because the fact is: Black men don't want to waste energy strategizing about how to play those coy Barbie doll games. They want to be in it - with you. The Sistah's Rules keeps it real. Follow them and you will find an eligible black man, win him, and understand exactly how to keep him in a no-nonsense, committed relationship. With The Sistah's Rules you honor your standards and yourself, without settling for any less from a man. Although they may seem harsh ("After you get your swerve on, get up out of his bed and go home"), they tell you to live your own life so you don't cling to his. While they may seem over-the-top ("The way to a man's heart is through a great plate of greens"), they encourage you to please and be pleased. And although they require some work ("Get to know his mama, get to know him"), they will get you the man who is right for you - without wasting time.

As professional African-Americans (we're all lawyers), we can tell you that "The Sistah's Rules" are not written with the intention of finding a man of substance. Rather, they appear to be focused on finding someone with whom to "hook up." If you want to find a husband, stop worrying about "working the booty" and start working on yourself! (This comment comes from a MARRIED man of substance!)
Please note that one of the last rules is "So you got dissed huh? Get over it?" Good advice, since it's likely to happen often if you follow these ridiculous rules.
Futhermore, why does the author feel that the entire book must be written in ebonics in order for it to appeal to African-Americans, or to be considered "down to earth?" One wonders how many copies of "The New York Daily News" (for which the author writes) would be sold if the author wrote her articles in ebonics!
I've read some of the other comments and feel that if you need assistance in finding a mate, buy the book, you determine your destiny.
