And yet, people continue write them, because people continue to buy them, because people are always looking for that has ever figured out—except, of course, for this author of the book, who purports to believe that his/her generic-at-best or sociopathically-manipulative-at-worst book is, in fact, that end-all-be-all answer that everyone has been looking, and that only s/he is brilliant enough to have discovered.
So then why bother reading one if I'm not going to like it and just complain about it? Enjoy your lonely life with your fifteen cats why no I'm not manipulating you like your last boyfriend did AT ALL! And since I received this book for free I figured it would be no big loss.

We all fight gender stereotypes but I follow them because it makes me money! The thing that earned them the extra star is that, really, I do think they care. ::crickets:: I honestly was pretty curious about Greg Behrendt after hearing soooo much hype about "He's Just Not That Into You".
