Not only is the advice in this book severely antiquated (it talks about having to leave the voice mail machine and never even mentions texting), but the advice in this books makes me uncomfortable as a woman in the 21st century. I understand "be mysterious" and "play hard to get" but there is a vast difference between playing hard to get and being psychotic. Don't ever return his calls? Impose a limit on how many times you can see your boyfriend a week? (spoiler: its 2-3) This book encourages women to hold back and, in some cases, to not be themselves with the men once they're already dating! I just don't think that's practical or logical, so I'm going to recommend not waisting you time or money on this book.
