Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

It’s a classic single-woman scenario: you really like this guy, but he’s giving mixed messages. You make excuses, decide he’s confused, afraid of commitment. Behrendt, a former executive story editor for Sex and the City—and a formerly single (now happily married) guy who knows all the excuses—provides a simple answer: he’s just not that into you. Stop kidding yourself, let go and look for someone else who will be. After all, as Behrendt sensibly puts it, "if a (sane) guy really likes you, there ain’t nothing that’s going to get in his way." If you’re not convinced yet, by all means read this smart, funny and surprisingly upbeat little book, full of q’s and a’s covering every excuse woman has ever made to avoid admitting to herself that a man just wasn’t that smitten with her.

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–With a bright, breezy style, the authors highlight a list of actions that men take to demonstrate that they are "just not into you," using "Dear Greg" letters and replies, unscientific polls of men, lists reviewing the key points in each chapter, a comic glossary, and laugh-out-loud workbook assignments. Although this book is meant for the 20-plus career women who have been dating for a while, the empowering message that a woman deserves a man who truly loves her and not one that she must constantly make excuses for can't be learned too early.–Jane S. Drabkin, Chinn Park Regional Library, Woodbridge, VA

Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be a very entertaining read. However, I found it only really scratched the surface on the problems that both men and women face on a daily basis. I think the authors over simplified the subject matter. They seem to portray the issues we face as black and white. If only it could be that simple. In fact I wouldn't be in the loving relationship I am today if I followed the advice presented in this book. My man had a lot of challenges from his youth and it took him a long time to come to terms with some of life's issues. If I would have followed the suggestions in this book, I would have not given him the opportunity to discover who he really is.
The book seems to miss the fact that we all have insecurities that affect us. Non of us are perfect. Telling all women that they deserve better is a great way to sell books. However, the statement assumes all women are great. The fact is, all women are not great and do not deserve better. In reality life is more than an episode of a TV series. I found this book to be great for ratings (book sales) and sometimes fun, but it did not leave me wanting more. If you want a fun read, I definitely recommend this book. If you want to look at relationships and life from a different perspective, I recommend Seed's Sketchy Relationship Theories - A Guide to the Perils of Dating (How not to become a bar regular). A little gem I accidentally stumbled across.

Being a big Sex and the City fan myself, I was particularly enthused by the "He's just not that into you" concept. The episode was very intriging and gave me a new perspective on guys and excuses. About 2 chapters into the book, I realized that half of it didn't apply to me. It was extremely biased and based entirely on Greg's opinion. I agree that all the excuses written about were pathetic and women should not fall for them. But the examples were unrealistic, women were portrayed as pathetic, weak, materialistic, tragic heroes, forever and desperately searching for love. The writing was very poor, I felt like I was reading a book in elementary school with a colouring kit. The obvious is that guys aren't that into you if you have to doubt yourself and your relationship. There are many 'it depends' situations and every individual and relationship is different in their own way. The polls and surveys were useless and discredited the book immensely. All in all, I think this book received more attention than it deserved.

Format: Hardcover
This book simplifies many different situations that a girl can get into during her search for love. It is narrated by Greg, who is a straight guy and provides his overly simple explanation of "he's just not that into you" for pretty much all situations. Liz, the other author provides her stance on his advice from a female perspective, which I find is useful.
I think that women definitely complicate their own situation by over-thinking what is actually going on. Greg is the voice that pulls you back to reality... or at least makes you realize that guys think in a much less complicated manner. Either he's into you or he is not.
This book is a little too drawn out and I felt the chapters were too long, but a lot of the Q & A that they had were quite funny. I had a bit of a laugh, and I love how they have a few random phrases inserted throughout the book such as "turn down the crazy" and "don't waste the pretty". I recommend this book for women who find themselves having questions such as "How could he?!" or "Why are guys such jerks?!".

It's like skating on ice reading this book. Real cool and fun. It's very breezy, not too long, but punchy with insight about how silly and stupid we women can be. I certainly recommend it for anybody who likes Sex and the City and Jane Green and Lolly Winston books, or A Secret Word, a really smart cool book by Jennifer Paddock. Like that! You'll love it!

Format: Hardcover
This book is full of the kind of advice your best girlfriend would give you when you are feeling down in the dumps over a guy. When you see real life situations (he's not calling, all of a sudden he's too busy to see you) laid out in these easy to read chapters, it's hard to think the authors are not being spiteful. They use humor and some over the top situations (at least I hope they are over the top!) to get the point of their book across. They hit the nail right on the head. And they make sense! This little gem of a book definitely deserves five stars.
Another book I enjoyed recently is "The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book" It's filled with great strategies and lets you test your EQ online.

A funny, entertaining, and truthful look at dating. Girls, we've just got to erase the memory of reading about the frog and the prince. These fairy tales teach us to be idealistic but not realistic. So here's one good book that will surely debunk the myths.
Another great book about dating that debunks the myths in a very entertaining and meaningful way is Jennifer Paddock's novel A SECRET WORD.

By J. Scully TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Jan. 19 2011
Format: Hardcover
If you watched Sex and the City, or have seen the He's Just Not That Into You movie, you probably already know what the book is about. But if you've missed out on the screen versions, He's Just Not That Into You demystifies the bizarre behaviour of men in dating scenarios. Greg Behrendt shares insights that women have been sorely missing for decades. Centuries probably. He basically takes all the hours we've spent obsessing about what the confusing behaviour of the opposite sex means and boils it down to one simple truth. A guy who likes you will not leave you wondering and sitting by the phone. Period.

As I read this book I saw EXACT examples of male behaviour that I have been subject to. I know Greg and Liz haven't met my exes, but I swear they were recounting stories I have lived. I've already re-read multiple sections, because their advice is just that great. Their message may be a bit hard to take at first, because nobody really wants to accept that the guy who didn't call just doesn't like them, but I think this book is genius. And while it may seem disheartening at first, it's really a book that focuses on how awesome women are and why we should love ourselves enough to not let a guy treat us any less than great.

All women who are dating should keep He's Just Not That Into You handy as a reference. Read it, and then when you're lying awake wondering what his latest behaviour means, check it and I bet you'll find your answer.
