Comedian Greg Behrendt was a consultant for three consecutive seasons on Sex and the City, where he and Liz Tucillo, a writer on the programme, developed the idea of He's Just Not That Into You. The book became a runaway success in the US. His acclaimed stand-up comedy has been seen on HBO, The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt, and their two children
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.
