From Publishers WeeklyIt’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.Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

From School Library JournalAdult/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.
