Review: How to Get the Man You Want/How to Get the Woman You Want by Paul Morris Segal and Katia Loisel-Furey

Have you ever wondered what the opposite sex really thinks? What do they look for in a prospective partner? What gets their attention, what turns them on and what turns them off?

Flirting, Dating, Sex and Love

When it comes to flirting, dating, sex and love, what do they really want? As if the world of dating wasn’t confusing enough, every time you turn on the TV, read a magazine or hop online you get different advice.

Girls, should you play hard to get or shouldn’t you? Is making the first move taking away the thrill of the chase? What do guys really think about paying for the first date and do you owe him one if you accept? Is it ok to have sex on the first date or will he see you as nothing but a booty call?

Guys, what are women really looking for in a guy, do looks really matter or is it the size of your wallet they’re after? Do they really judge you based on your size or is it your experience that counts? How do you find your soulmate and receive the love and respect you deserve?

Global Study into the Dating & Mating Patterns of Singles

Inundated with questions from singles about flirting, dating, sex and love we decided to find out the truth about what men and women really want once and for all. To get real answers we went straight to the horse’s mouth, conducting a global study into the dating and mating patterns of over 1500 men and women. The study consisted of online surveys, focus groups, seminars, interviews and field research (not to mention a little research of our own).

Real People - Real Answers: Surprising Results

The results even surprised us. Some of the responses left us speechless, others had us rolling in tears of laughter, and a few had us scratching our heads wondering how on earth men and women ever got together.

In this book you’ll find real answers and real stories from real people. We’ll blast open those old wives tales and myths and tell you the truth about what men and women and really want and the secrets they don’t want you to know.

Read on, we’ve taken the guesswork out of getting the one you want. Because dating is a game best played with two. Like men and women, the two sides of this book compliment each other perfectly, so you need to read one side in conjunction with the other to have maximum impact on the opposite sex.

Bon Apetit!!

Received from the author for review.

This was a dual sided book, one side each for Men and Women, which was fun format. The personal stories included in each side were enlightening.

The global study results were truly interesting. It really made me realize just how skewed our perceptions are here in the US and just how shallow we really are here. Obviously here in the US the findings that ranked personality at #1 and looks at #5 would probably be reversed. Perhaps the results that ranked intelligence over looks would hold, but I'm not too sure about that. Perhaps for women choosing men, at least.

The book certainly has numerous answers to the question it poses:

We can't all be Angelina Jolie, so how do you attract the man you want if you weren't hit with the pretty stick?

Other gems include:

Did you know that 88% of the people we polled admitted that when they first meet someone they're attracted to more often than not they assume that the other person doesn't like them back?

The only time you should ever ask a woman if she's put on weight is if you're keen to break up with her, but haven't got the guts to do it. Ask at your own peril!

This one gets four stars. It was fun, informative, and nicely written. It gets the information across without being snooze worthy. While it is very nicely done, perhaps it isn't quite as much for the US crowd as we're so darn shallow here, but still quite intriguing.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
