Okay, so I just read these three books:  He's Just Not That Into You, Stop Getting Dumped, and How To Lose a Man in 10 Days.  They were all informative and enjoyable.

Has anybody read these books?  What are your thoughts?  I changed this post, because I was so anxious for a response that I moved the original post to the main discussion forum:)

I didn't enjoy these books, I think the movie versions added so much more.  In my opinion, all fluff, and no substance in the books.

I had "He's Just Not That Into You," bought it at Goodwill, and was able to trade it really quickly here, so I am happy with that :) Heard the movie was good though.

He's Just Not That Into You and Confessions of a Shopaholic in theaters, and me with no DH for the week! I think I feel a chick flick marathon coming on!

Charity,  I thought "He's not that into you"  was brutally frank about the different ways men  and women see relationship, sex &, dating.  I found it revealing and very valuable in looking at ways I delude myself about relationships  It was refreshing to see how simple  the picture can be seen.  There is a book that responds to the book called "Be honest...You.re not that into him either.  Raise your standards and reach for the love you deserve." by Ian Kerner, Ph.D.  Check it out.
