He's Just Not That Into You, Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo

This probably has a lot of good tips if you date a lot. I don't date at all, so I sat through most of it going 'Duh' and 'People really DO that?' Also, I would have swallowed it more easily if the authors didn't keep insisting that everyone is hot and awesome and worthy of a good guy, because some people just aren't. (Hi!)

idk. There was a patient in the wards permanently with cerebral palsy and malignant epilepsy because her dad kicked her mom in the stomach when she was eight months pregnant. I contest whether he is an awesome person deserving of a nice relationship.

...Okay you win. Probably he did not deserve any sort of happiness ever. But I think within the spectrum of normal (ugh statistics, go die), most people are great and deserve to find a happy relationship.

I refuse to read that book for all the reasons you've listed.

Hmm, it might be useful if you kept fucking up relationships. But in that case, you probably need more help than it can provide. Catch-22!
