Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. Love Sex and the City? Revisit the world of strategic dating with Be Honest-You’re Not That Into Him Either.

Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. Be Honest is about figuring out how to best serve your own needs,. and still respect yourself. Ian Kerner is that rare man who truly loves women and wants to help them. From the foreword by Amy Sohn, New York magazine columnist). A funny and truly helpful look at what modern women may have forgotten (or just won’t admit) about themselves.

Kerner has a raw, honest, nonbiased, devils advocate way of looking into the world of dating for women. I started reading this book and honestly can't put it down. He really challenges you to look at things from all sides. If you're over forty or just really conservative I feel maybe you might be a little to conservative for this book, and how blunt it can be. Like if the idea of one-night-stands appauls you, its safe to say this isn't the book for you. Not that he glorifies the one-nighter at all, but he does acknowledge that people have them and more often than most people would like to admit.

This book seems to mostly be a variation on a very old, standard misogynistic idea: Women are "different" than men, and therefore must restrain their desire for equality, happiness, and success, and just sacrifice everything to pretty much the first man who expresses the intent to enslave them. The author sometimes tries to pretend like that's not what he is saying, and other times he doesn't even do that. Overall, the author seems to repeat again and again that no matter what women do, they are guaranteed to be unhappy unless they "wait for the real thing".

Some examples:

1. Women "can't have sex like men" (whatever that means; the author sprinkles a few hormone names over the text, but does not offer any sound argument whatsoever), therefore they should not do it and "wait for the real thing" instead. (Huh? What real thing? Are you kidding me?) At the same time, they should be careful not to want "too much"; that is perfectionism and they might not actually get married if they are choosy. If they don't like the man who is interested in them, they should look at him more closely. (The only way I could interpret the author's verbose dance around these two contradictory ideas is that a woman should not date someone who does not "love" her (whatever that means), because that person is not interested in this woman becoming his servant, while there may be a man out there who does, and not dating that man deprives him of his right to have a servant).

2. Women have become very educated and successful, so their standards went up. Therefore, they should remember to be realistic and not expect men to meet these standards. (This advice is particularly adorable, as in the next chapter, the author says that men now feel less pressure to get married and have become choosey, therefore women should "work on becoming worthy partners").

3. The cause of high divorce rates are *women* who "get married too hastily, without really having found their soulmate".

4. Women who have a lot of men interested in them are insecure and are trying to compensate for something by becoming center of attention.

Etc., etc., etc...

I am glad I read this book, it is a nice reminder of what's often out there, under the mask of "psychotherapy" and "help". Still, it is amazing that this is being published (and positively reviewed) in the 21st century.

This book is aimed at the thirty something … give or take a decade … woman, something I'm quite a few years beyond in age. Nonetheless, I found it an entertaining read. More important, it offers sage advice to those of us, female or male, who are hoping to find a life companion, a true love. It's exactly the counsel that a Jungian therapist might give, but it's presented in a more popular format and style. Getting to know yourself and becoming a better you is at the crux of finding that love you are seeking. Settling for anything less is selling yourself short. I also like that the author is realistic about love. It's easy to be swept away by our projections of our ideal on a very human, and therefore imperfect, being. But while the real deal, the steady, solid relationship that stands the test of time and that supports the growth and development (individuation, if you will) of both partners may not be quite as glamorous as the Hollywood version of love, it will make us happier in the end. A quick read that just might help you set off on a more realistic course toward love.

It's an entertaining read and Kerner makes some good points, but take it with a grain of salt. Not for a reader who is not into gender binary, stereotyping type mindset. It's funny here and there and I breezed through the book in a couple of days. Kept my attention because I was hoping it would go somewhere profound.. Negative. It's definitely written for an audience of women who get their life advice from vogue or another women's magazine. Unless you just need a good laugh, save your time and money.

I loved this book. I'm 53 and getting ready to get back into the dating world (post-divorce). The underlying message was loud and clear: having casual sex with guys we don't really care about does not serve us well, and won't get us closer to what we all want: a serious relationship with someone we truly care about and who truly cares about us. (He does this in the most loving, non-judgmental way. He's actually quite funny, and he truly cares about women. The last chapter, written by his wife, was awesome.)

Everyone takes something different away from a book, depending on your age, your needs, your background, etc. But for me, this was it: instead of getting on the dating treadmill and sleeping around, waiting for the right one to come along, I'm going to spend time with my fabulous self, get to know myself and what I REALLY want. I'm going to get back to yoga, and do all those cool things I've been wanting to do. I'm not going to depend on a man to validate me. I'm not going to "settle" for not-quite-right guys (I deserve better). And if/when the right guy comes along, I'll know it, because I'll know myself and what I want, and it'll be for the right reasons. And the "if" (in if/when) is okay. Having a man isn't the golden ticket to happiness. I'm happy anyway. (And from what I've observed, happy, fulfilled people are more likely to have relationships!)

The book actually gives me hope. :)

I bought this book for my girlfriend who struggles with the wrong men. As her bestie I try to give advise as to what I see wrong with each guy's behavior and why they run. This little book will help her see the pattern early and realize he's really not for her either!
