    His take on the catcall viral video makes me want punch a dolphin. Some pro quotes: "I'm more of an expert (on street harassment) than you because I know how guys think." "You would not care (about street harassment) if all these guys were hot." "There is nothing more that a woman wants to hear than how pretty she is." It gets worse. Watch for yourself.

    This book was a big fat face slap to men and women everywhere. The advice could not have been worse.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I can't remember where I read about this book, but somehow I came away with the impression that it was one of those "joke" self-help books, the kind with funny cartoons. I could use a laugh right now, especially in that department, so I requested this book from my library. Yes, it made me laugh - but in an "OMG, is this guy serious?" way. Santagati talks out of both sides of his mouth all the way through this, claiming that men love women, then in the next breath explaining that that's true as lo I can't remember where I read about this book, but somehow I came away with the impression that it was one of those "joke" self-help books, the kind with funny cartoons.

Santagati talks out of both sides of his mouth all the way through this, claiming that men love women, then in the next breath explaining that that's true as long as we (women) fit into the usual narrowly-defined acceptable stereotypes. Messages like "It's ok to be a tomboy, as long as you don't take it too far" - I got news for ya, I'm not putting on lipstick before I go mt biking. It's just something else for the dirt to stick to. He says "we [men] want" a lot, when I think he really means "I want". There's also that constant undercurrent of "to attract a man you have to act a certain way", which IMO sets up unrealistic expectations. (Of course the "certain way" is to need the guy - because men need to be heroes & rescuers, yanno.) Naturally, there's nothing to be found about what we're getting out if it in return. No thanks.

    OK, so I am giving 3 stars as the book actually contains some very useful information (don't jump to conclusions here, read further on) even though the title is misleading. So the book is called: The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate--And What Women Can Do to Come Out on Top but in my opinion a more appropriate title might be: The Insight: A True Bad Boy Explains How Bad Men Think, Date, and Mate--And What Women Can Do to Avoid Them For one - the author is wrong in asserti OK, so I am giving 3 stars as the book actually contains some very useful information (don't jump to conclusions here, read further on) even though the title is misleading. So the book is called: The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate--And What Women Can Do to Come Out on Top but in my opinion a more appropriate title might be: The Insight: A True Bad Boy Explains How Bad Men Think, Date, and Mate--And What Women Can Do to Avoid Them For one - the author is wrong in asserting that all women want bad boys - that is a stereotype and purely author's conviction - I as a woman want to stay clear of such "bad boys" so why on earth would I want to come out on top, unless the coming out on top means successfully recognizing them for what they are and managing to steer clear of them ? From this perspective, unlike some reviewers I don't believe the book is all that bad - it does contain an invaluable insight into the mind of a genuinely bad guy who explains the workings of such a bad guy's mind and I think that the author does so really well. I have personally been unfortunate enough to come across this type of men and how I wish I'd known what I do now after reading this book. Yes, some of the info in this book is brutally honest and not pleasant to read at all - as I think for the author the coming out on top actually means "managing to be sexy and pleasing to the bad guys so they actually pay attention to you". For example the author states that as soon as a guy lands a sight on you he is running an internal `expiration clock" - you read that right ! As in he already knows what time he wants to spend with you and how. Yeah, for bad guys that's what they might think like, the other men hopefully realize that women are real human beings who are not to be classified according to how the bad guy may wish to use them. Again, as a woman why on earth would I want to spend any time with anyone who regards human beings in this manner ? The author also claims that he truly loves women and clearly wants to distinguish himself from the "users and abusers" but then he goes on to mention how he was at one moment dating 17! women all at once and how one lucky lady made him forget all about the other 16! and had the author commit to dating only her. It seems that the book is full of such logical fallacies. All in all, if you want your teenage daughter to be well equipped to knowing bad guys and their tricks so that she doesn't fall prey to them then this is an excellent book to read. Kudos to the author the book is funny and kind of well written, it does not drag on or anything and thus any young woman might actually enjoy reading and learning. For any "older" woman out there who has already had to deal with some bad guys this is an invaluable book too - they can stop blaming themselves for the past and see the bad guys for the pitiful and egoistic creatures with very little in the higher values department to speak of that they are. I am not stating the author has no respect or is shallow - but the type of a guy who is described in the book unfortunately is.

No point in starting a cat fight. He also talked about playing games and following rules, which just sounds like a recipe for disaster. Yes, I believe that you should flirt and tease a guy a little, but I think that they like it, but don't do it to the point where the guy is just confused about who you are and what you want. Most of the advice he gave, I swear, if I did it in the real world, would just backfire. I don't want to be all negative, some of it seemed helpful. He says that any time you are out in public there is always at least one guy checking you out. That kind of makes me feel exposed. I don't doubt that yeah, there probably is, because I often look around at people when I go to the store or whatever. But when he talks about it, he always makes it seem like the person is going to come over and start chatting with you. That has NEVER happened to me. I go to the store and library all the time, and never has a random guy come up to me and started a conversation. Why would I want to take advice from a Player. Maybe if he had been a player, but then got married, it would be a little more believable. Like I said, this book was BS, but that doesn't mean that you won't take it a different way. So read it. Maybe you'll get more out of it than I did.

    This book started out ok, albeit shallow... I gues with a title like that you can't expect much more... What really threw me off though was that instead of perhaps peeling layers off and becoming more interesting, it became way way wayyyyy worse!

Makes me wonder what kind of uninteresting-job women Santagati is talking about and dating... Weird weird stuff...!!! This book read a lot like a teenager's guide to impressing teenage boys...

    Any person with an emotional age above 17 will find it hard to take someone seriously that judges the length of a relationship by the length of their lover's pubic/ under-arm/ chest hair. At the same time - some credit should be given for good intentions: Steve seems to sincerely try to give women the heads-up on the secret character traits that unite all those born with a y-chromosome. It's hard to fault him for the fact that his bad-boy banter gets regularly in the way of serious contemplation Any person with an emotional age above 17 will find it hard to take someone seriously that judges the length of a relationship by the length of their lover's pubic/ under-arm/ chest hair.

It's hard to fault him for the fact that his bad-boy banter gets regularly in the way of serious contemplation - after all, what's a sexy man to do? But, between the "how are YOU doing?" bits of bookflirt (I am sure it's far more irresistable if you meet Steve & his chiseled body in person), he accidentally stumbled over a surprising truth: stick to the rules, break to the rules, be loving, be strict, do care, be unavailable - it really doesn't matter. All this depends on you and the person you're dealing with. Therefore, enjoy life, be real and look after yourself. Not too bad for a bad boy after all....

    I thought this was an interesting, although not always inspiring look into a man's mind regarding the game of dating. The author gives some good insights into how men think, but he doesn't always offer women the solutions in a helpful mode of feminine understanding. He's hypocritical. He expresses how important a woman's physical appearance is to men, which is understandable. However, he says initially that women only need to be well-groomed and natural to be sexy; then, he spends 4 chapters on I thought this was an interesting, although not always inspiring look into a man's mind regarding the game of dating.

While it has put a different perspective on my views on men, after this read, I now know that many men do play games and expect the female to play along.

    The sole reason as to why this book caught my attention was to see what a guy would write about the male thought process. I give this a flat-hand-with-twisting. Sure, his point of view MAY be true to the males who have the same thought process as him. Men who claim "All men think the same" are mostly speaking about guys like them. He has some good points. Good toilet reading. The sole reason as to why this book caught my attention was to see what a guy would write about the male thought process. I give this a flat-hand-with-twisting.

    Dear Women, if you want to learn how to self-objectify yourself, this is the book for you! What made me give this book two stars, and what truly frightens me, is that the author is actually sincere. He thinks he's helping women when he's part of the problem. It's actually really sad. This book was recommended to me by an ex, and I can't wait to call him up and tell him what I think. Dear Women, if you want to learn how to self-objectify yourself, this is the book for you!

    Read this while doing research for a character. Personally I always thought bad boys were a lot of work. Sure, they are fun and you can attract one by following Steve's advice, but keeping one for a long term relationship is not easy. And would mean playing games until you tire and he runs.

    I find that I've been reading a lot of dating and diet books lately, which might make me look slightly pathetic, but I don't seem to care. Anyway, this is probably my second-favorite dating book.

Santagati's advice is refreshingly specific--instead of the usual "Love yourself and then you will find a mate" it's more "Wear skirts that cling to your butt a bit. Here are words you can use to break up with someone." Some of his advice is painful to hear--nobody wants it pounded into their head that men are visual creatures and you have to, at least at first, lure them in by adhering to traditional standards of beauty. I think, though, that there's a lot of truth to what he says, and maybe if want to attract a man, you have to be smart about these things. I also liked that he's very much "You are in control, and you should do what makes you comfortable, not what society says you should do." His advice on sex and dating, while vague, was oddly reassuring.

    I read an excerpt of this book online somewhere, and I decided to give it a try when I found it avaliable at the library. Ultimately, it's enlightening. It confirmed some things I already knew about men and their psyches, and listed new ones too. Advice in this book is something to think about. Certain suggestions, I admit, I would never do unless I was extremely desperate - yes, from my point of view, certain suggestions were a bit extreme.

    OK, I read this as part of the "Man Plan". Within the first few chapters, the author has a quiz to prove women love bad boys whether they want to believe this or not. I took the quiz. I do not love bad boys. I love the "boring" nice boys. It was an OK book. Some things were frustrating because I knew they were true, others were because it just seemed so juvenile. Honestly, I don't know that it'll help with the almost defunct "man plan", but we'll see. OK, I read this as part of the "Man Plan".

    A friend gave this to me after yet another break up. But what I realized is that I really don't want a "bad boy" so this manual doesn't really help me in my situation. My "bad boy" brother did think it was pretty accurate in some places. The part I really didn't like was the "relationship expiration dates" - Steve claims that men know how long they will stick aroudn right from the beginning. Wish I was given that information upfront.

    Honestly? Very helpful. I gained a lot of understanding after reading this. I finally get why many of the men in my life acted the way they did. There is some contradictory advice, but the other reviewers are missing the point. He's saying it's best to be a bit contradictory. I think some women are being a little too sensitive about this book. Some of it's a little ugly, but I like having the other teams playbook. Try to go into it with an open mind, ladies. Honestly?

    Honestly I got this at the library five years ago on a whim. I took the whole thing with a grain of salt and just enjoyed reading it. He's funny and for better or worse honest. I don't think you should take it so seriously--one look at the first couple pages and you get a pretty good idea of what it's going to be like...put down the book and get another... not to mention. he hardly seems like a bad boy as much as he seems like a douche.
