Book Review - He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo
OK... Before anyone asks, I'm not taking lessons on anything nor was there a reason I needed to read this book. I just heard it was quite funny and well-written, so I decided to check it out... He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. It didn't disappoint...
Behrendt and Tuccillo were both involved in the writing duties for Sex In The City. During one of the chat sessions in the writers room, the women were trying to figure out if a guy was sending signals to one of the girls as to whether he still liked her. Greg just came out and told them... "He's just not that into you!" It was a real revelation to all of them, and it led to the writing of this book. It's a series of letters and lessons that should help a woman understand when a guy isn't into them and the relationship any more, but can't bring himself to tell her that in so many words. The book is probably more harsh than women want to hear (we're scum, OK?), but if they pay attention they can minimize their pain and move on to better opportunities. The male/female perspective and interplay between the two authors is fantastic, and even if you aren't in this particular situation, the writing is funny. I laughed a lot while reading it, but I also understood that Greg pretty well has the male species nailed down. If we're into you, you'll know if. If you have to guess and wonder, we're probably not (or we don't deserve you in the first place). Of course, there are nice guys who get stuck with nasty women also, and that's not explored here. But I'm guessing that the scenarios in the book happen more frequently than the opposite ones.
If you're in a "is he interested in me" quandary, read the book. If you're not but you want an entertaining read, still read the book. Either way it will be beneficial.
