“Why Men Love Bitches” – Sherry Argov
I have to be honest: I’m not big on reading self-help books. They kind of confirm what I already know about myself and thus make me feel a billion times worse. However, that being said I gave Why Men Love Bitches a read because it was suggested by a good friend of mine; someone who happened to find this book useful and thought that it might help me too.
I am pleased to say that I enjoyed reading this book – it was humorous and light hearted which definitely helps get the message across! It’s also very easy to understand; no hard-to-grasp lingo, no reading between the lines – the language is straight up, if occasionally brutal!
This book actually gave me lots of insight to who I am as a person, and who I become when I’m in a relationship. I am a nice girl, but according to the book, I should be a bitch. Let me make one thing clear: The bitch in this book is not to be confused with your average, everyday kind of “bitch”. The distinction that Sherry makes in the book is that this bitch is defined as a Babe In Total Control of Her life. Pretty clever huh!
Now, it goes without saying that any self help book should be read with a grain of salt on the side (or, in my case, a large bag of salty potato chips) – this one is easy to digest though, and quite clear. Full of Attraction Principals, it spells everything out for the Nice (and slightly delusional) Girl to help her reset her priorities.
The overall message in the book though is simple: Girls, start putting yourself first and standing up for yourselves! Men don’t want someone that they can walk all over, and having deep and meaningful conversations about feelings with your boyfriend/fiancee/husband is about as useful as a car with three wheels.
Long story short: Don’t alter your routine or life for a man. If they love you enough, they’ll find a way to be a part of your life.
Overall, an entertaining and insightful read!
