I am a guy, and I bought this book and enjoyed it for its entertainment value. I couldn't stop listening, it was so funny and engaging. I keep giggling, LOL!
This listen was very funny. However, alot of it is very true in today's relationship. It would save alot of women from getting a broken heart.
In overall, the entire book was an excellent book to listen. I believe that EVERY girl and grown women be require to read or listen to this book before getting involve in a relationship.
They were able to deliver the message with good humor, but with the truth.
I'm have decided to stay single and happy...LOL
I like this book because I tend to trust guys and make excuses for their excuses. I feel like I know what to do now no matter how their sweet nothings prick my heart. It is a great book because even if you are emotional, you can look at the situation and see what is really going on.
Oh I liked both Greg and Liz. The audio sounds like real people and so brings the point home in an entertaining way.
I like the question about why he doesn't call you. He doesn't call you because you are not important enough to him no matter what excuses he has.
I like the review at the end of each chapter which is "here is what you should have gotten out of this chapter".
You Deserve Better
Greg and Liz are great narrators - good voices and rhythm. Greg's background in stand-up comedy makes his narrations particularly good.
Uh, they already made a film of this book.
This book is filled with truths that are hard to hear - but it's oddly comforting to know that the mixed messages behavior men do isn't unique. It's (sadly) common; I've had guy friends confirm on more than one occasion that what the book says about male behavior is indeed true. Though reading it can sometimes feel like your hopes are being dashed, once you start applying the principles in the book, you'll find that your life is much happier and filled with a lot less stress, tears, and bullsh*t. The message of the book is
Yes, I became more aware that us men need to take the risk and reward of pursuing our interest and attraction in a women and not be passive or embarrassed about it.
I am appalled at the attention given to this simplistic approach to understanding men in dating. Everything comes back to one thing with these guys... men are simpletons without any bagagge or fear and women are always perfectly transparent and give out clear signals. Of course they aren't, and I wonder how many potentially great relationships have been scuttled by this mindless and simplictic approach. I found it insulting to both men and women, life is much more complex than this.
This is one of those books that you will not want to stop listening to once you start. It is hilarious in its presentation and painfully truthful in topics presented. The sting if the truth delivered with humor makes it easier to accept without beating yourself up for not seeing the patterns before.
GREAT book, worth listening to if you are single or have single friends who often discuss their dating life with you. Enjoy!
