A stand alone spin off of SATC,
This review is from: He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys (Paperback)
In all honesty I bought this book after reading a newspaper article about the TV show Sex and the City where this book was quoted from. I really enjoyed the SATC episode that coined the phrase "He's just not that into you" and wanted to see what else the writer had to say on the subject.
I have read some of the reviews and I agree with some of the people that state this is not the "Bible" on relationships and does not really cover those more serious and involved relationships, but's it not a one star book. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It gives a wide variety of the scenarios where a woman should really know better and cut her losses and get on with her life.
I found this book made me laugh at both the men in the scenarios and myself when I realised that I had been in several of the same situations before. I was single when I read this so I wasn't really using this a self help book or a guide to getting out of a bad relationship, however if there's one thing every woman should take from it - If he doesn't call you back, it's not personal, it's not the end of the world, he's just not that into you. If you think about, if you were compatible with every one in the world life would be a very dull place...
It's the self help book for those women who are not looking for a self help book. Even if you take nothing from it - it has some amusing parts to it and is written in a very comical style.
