The Man Diet One Woman's Quest to End Bad Romance

Synopsis

The Man Diet One Woman's Quest to End Bad Romance by Zoe Strimpel

Be honest, How often do you:Immediately check out the Facebook page of a guy you've just met?Send drunken texts that make you want to cringe the next morning?While away whole evenings analysing your love life with your mates?Answered yes to any of the above? Then you need this book.The single woman has never had it so good - or so you'd think. As Zoe Strimpel discovered, the reality can often be one of Junk Food Love, in other words: negative man-related experiences, corrosive man-obsessing thoughts and damaging man-related actions.Determined to help her fellow single woman, Zoe put herself on The Man Diet: ten no-nonsense rules to stop you binging on bad romance and help you sort the wheat from the chaff - emotionally, sexually and romantically. This isn't a book about snaring a man; it's about treating yourself well while you're single and putting you on the right track to happiness.If you loved Caitlin Moran's How to be a Woman and Grace Dent's How to Leave Twitter, you will love this book.

About the Author

Zoe Strimpel's first writing job was on the Times Money section, where she confirmed that she has no interest in the finer points of pensions, annuities and insurance. She thus threw herself into writing about books, food and life, hitting a popular nerve with a piece for The Times's Times2 about how talkative women put men off. There's something in this man-woman thing, she thought, and soon landed a long-running, popular column about the single life in the ex-newspaper, thelondonpaper. In 2008 she began writing a book about what men really think, conducting interviews with hundreds of them on the topic of their romantic leanings. In 2010, What the Hell is He Thinking: All the Questions You've Ever Asked About Men Answered, was published. This is her second book.Zoe grew up near Boston, USA. She studied English at Cambridge and is the Lifestyle Editor of business newspaper City A.M. She blogs at zoestrimpel.com and tweets at @zstrimpel.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Sarah Bruch

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
