Get the Guy: Learn Secrets of the Male Mind to Find the Man You Want and the Love You Deserve

Matthew Hussey. Harper Wave, $25.99 (272p) ISBN 978-0-06-224174-0
Dating coach and TV personality Hussey (from NBC’s forthcoming reality show, Ready for Love) draws from his popular relationship webinar, GetTheGuy, for this compendium of bite-sized suggestions to help women find, get, and keep “the guy.” Sprinkled throughout are links to digital tie-ins (one directs readers to a video of Hussey demonstrating “the look” that’s meant to grab men’s attention), but most of the advice is mind-numbingly bland—”Love is hard;” “A man gets excited by the idea of having sex with a woman he desires;” and so on. Hussey does offer some practical tips—he insists that “the smallest changes in your daily rituals can yield huge results.” To that end, he explains how to “Get Good at WAR (working a room),” instigate physical contact without coming off as aggressive, make dates more spontaneous and fun, and text a guy to hang out (I’m here doing X, “You should come!”). Hussey occasionally goes into an absurd amount of detail—as when he lists nine reasons a guy hasn’t called, when a simple “He’s just not that into you” would suffice; most readers will likely deem their time better spent in some other scene. Agent: Richard Pine, Inkwell Management. (Apr.)
