This book comes across a patronizing. We learn what is a “High Value Woman”. You hear that term a “million times”. This book made me feel nauseous. And, if the author is correct in his, what he says “all men are”, and he knows this because he is man, it looks pretty sad and hopeless, at least for me. What I got, is that men are dogs and they cannot help themselves in a myriad of ways, and as women we need to learn how to play games with them from the beginning and forever (but “we should be ourselves”). All and all depressing book. Patronizing and depressing. It really should be “F**k men” book. The sad part is that, even if I hate most of what he says and the way he says it, he may be right, which is the worst thing. Anyway, this book left me hopeless and depressed, and hoping I was gay. Also, it seems he is just mostly sharing about himself, and it was one of those books that seemed to be put together in a few days. Paraphrasing the person who put the words on paper for this book “I’m sorry it this offends you, but I like to give it to you straight.” Thank you.

The author says that for many years he has been observing and interviewing women who were able to find lasting love. He shares the secrets that he gleaned from them. The main theme of the book is to be very independent. For example, if you have a yoga class planned and your boyfriend asks you out last minute for that time, tell him that you already planned to go to the yoga class. The author says you need to have your own life. If you really want to go out with him and you have nothing planned, then the author would say it's fine. He shares a lot of additional advice.

This book suggest strategies to become a ‘high value’ woman which in return translates to a woman who constantly control her behaviour to keep a ‘High value’ man rather then bring her authentic self and expect man to love her for who she really is. It appears that we all need to consciously respond to man’s fears and shortcomings as they themselves are unable to do so, but we must love them anyway as they don’t really mean it. There is very little insight into women psyche and the author over simplifies both sexes (several times comparing the men’s thought and behaviour to a 3 years old toddler) and the highly complex nature of love and attraction. It makes claims such as if a man loves you (which is clearly conditioned on the fact that we behave in a ‘feminine manner’ at all times) he will want to take care of you and do things for you, such as ‘manly tasks’ of fixing the door handle. I think the author needs to acquaint himself with the 21st century definition of sexes and gender identities. I can’t really recommend this book, although I must say that I prefer the author’s YouTube videos, which are short, sweet, funny and to the point and could help younger women with self esteem issues trying to get into the dating scene.
