He's just not that into you

Book title: He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
Author: Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo
Status: Finished

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 the empowering message that a woman deserves a man who truly loves her and not one that she must constantly make excuses for.

在機上看過電影【He's Just Not That Into You】,即時聯想到【Sex and the City】第六季的其中一集,Carrie 的作家男友 Burger 向 Miranda 披露"He's just not that into you"的真相。

後來翻查資料,才得知原來該電影的原著作者確是【Sex and the City】的編劇和顧問!作者之一的 Greg Behrendt 更是編劇室內的一泓清泉,為全女班的 SATC 編劇組帶來衝擊性的全新視點。

此書雖說是合著,但感覺上還是由 Behrendt 做主導,Tuccillo 不過偶爾補充女性的觀點與感受。

雖然 Behrendt 的見解不免以偏概全,但不乏精闢論調,能博得讀者一笑,更刺激到貓的文思,即時就 Behrendt 的論調和平日觀察所得寫了篇"情憑誰來定錯對"

All in all, this book is an easy read, funny and insightful. I like it that the authors don't hesitate to scream in readers' faces: YOU are the only one who will suffer if you continue to cling to something that wasn't meant to be! That life is too short to pine for things that aren't meant to happen.
