This review is from: He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys (Paperback)
Ladies, you MUST own a copy of this book. I read the book in one sitting and found myself inwardly cringing at all the excuses men had thrown at me that I'd believed (and I really wish I'd had this book a couple of relationships back, I may not have made such a fool of myself!). And also, some of the excuses I'd made FOR the blokes who weren't 'that into me'.
I had never bought a relationship 'self-help' book before but admit I got caught up in the Sex In The City hype when this was released and thought I'd give it a try. Now, I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
It's quite amazing that modern, independent women of the 21st Century are carving out lives and successful careers for ourselves; but when it comes to relationships, we put up with so much garbage. Instead of feeling in control, we feel powerless, unattractive and unworthy.
The only problem with this book is; it's absolutely right. As you read it, you begin to feel a bit narked that in order to find Mr Right, you have to wait for him to come to you. And if that guy you've had your eye on, doesn't call or pound down your door- it's quite obvious he's just not that into you. Isn't that annoying? But he's right. Anyone of us can look back at our previous relationships, both successful and not quite so successful and find examples that back up what Greg says in this book.
It's brutally honest; but Greg comes across as your big brother, campaigning for you, pushing your beauty and self worth and reminding you that you really are a gem. Even women in relationships should keep a copy of this book to refer to whenever needed. It's a gem for any woman's book collection.
This book is invaluable!

This book is definitley a must-have. I'd heard of the film and always wanted to read the book first, to see what it was all about. Alot of my friends, and even celebrities are raving about this book and how it helped them, so I wanted to give it a go. It kind of makes me laugh at how women make excuses for guys, which is what comes across in the book. It also made me realise that i'd been going for the wrong types of guys and really, they just weren't that into me. I also agree with the other comments that you should keep a copy to refer to whenever you need it, its a great help & reality check. Its an invaluble piece of writing, and I love it! I highly reccommend.
