The book's key point is that you will "find out how to survive dozens of physically and emotionally threatening situations in bars, restaurants, bedrooms, or airplane lavatories." This is important because "human nature is much less predictable than Mother Nature."
Like the other two worst-case survival handbooks, this one comes with many helpful illustrations to help you follow the advice.
Here are some of my favorite sections: How to determine the gender of your date (without removing any clothing); how to tell if you date is married; what to do if you run into an obsessive ex on a date; how to fake an intense sexual experience; how to find out the name of the person you are in bed with when you've forgotten their name; how to stop a wedding of someone you want to marry; a section of useful excuses; pick up lines not to use; and fending off unwanted admirers in a bar (which includes many ways to spill drinks on them).
More than the other two handbooks, this book is filled with advice that you may actually want to use some day (like how to stop someone from snoring, getting rid of excess gas, dealing with a declined credit card when you have no cash with you, and breaking up with someone in a considerate way).
I only found one area where I thought the advice was wrong. There's a section on how to tell if another person is a con artist.
Some of the advice is very practical, helpful and important for serious dating like: How to Determine If Your Date is Married, How to Deal with Bad Breath, How to Deal with a Drunken Date, How to Survive If You Are Stopped by the Police, and How to Survive Snoring.
Others are mostly amusing (especially the diagrams!) like: How to Determine the Gender of Your Date, How to Escape From a Bad Date, How to Spot a Fake (Boob job and hair pieces), How to Fend Off Competition For Your Date, and How to Remove Difficult Clothing...and of course the faking of the Big "O".
Some things that are in the book may not be such a good idea in the first place like How to Have an Affair and Not Get Caught. Maybe you can avoid the whole problem by not having an affair, right?
And the bit about How to Determine if Your Date is a Con-Artist...the entire thing about the eye patterns is such a bunch of neuro-baloney. Trust your intuition and if he seems kind of weird then he probably is.
All in all this is a fun read, a great gift, a practical guide to a few situations that may apply to you or one of your friends, and if you live on the dating "edge", this probably can save your behind....at least temporarily until you wise up.
Like a professional baseball player, this book helps an enlightened woman anticipate rare situations so that she can respond with action instead of react in panic. And for this, we can be thankful that this book exists.
In today's pop culture society, I'm sure this is destined to be a National Best-Seller.
The fun continues in the index, as the authors teach you how to write a "Dear John" letter, (all you have to do is insert your name and the name of the person you're dumping!) and the worst pick-up lines that you should NEVER use. But tucked into the index is something very useful-a chart of good and bad body language signals.
As a relationship expert, body language is extremely important if you want to deal from a position of strength. If you learn to read body language correctly, you can avoid wasting your time on someone who just isn't interested, or you can change your tactics so your date will be more responsive to you. Reading body language will also weed out the sickos, weirdos, liars,..., and married folks that we all want to avoid.
Bottom Line-this is a great book to read when you want to recover from a bad date. After all, things can always get worse, and laughter is the best medicine.
