9780060530297: Mr. Right, Right Now!: Man Catching Made Easy

The Mr. Right, Right Now! Promise:

If you start following the principles of the Man Catching Theory right now, 6 weeks from today, you will have the man of your dreams.

E. Jean Carroll, the popular advice columnist for Elle magazine, comes to the rescue of bright, high-achieving women everywhere with a foolproof program for finding love. In the first Man-Finding, Catching, and Captivating Manual for successful women, E. Jean provides a 6-week plan for finding the ideal mate.

And here's the best part: Mr. Right, Right Now! is not based on self-help horsehockey. Rather, it's founded on Darwinian principles, cutting-edge scientific research on "synchrony," and ten years of hard evidence provided by thousands of letters sent into the Ask E. Jean column.

The Man Catching Theory in Mr. Right, Right Now! has been tested and confirmed on E. Jean's wildly successful dating site GreatBoyfriends.com.

So, here's the deal, Doll: If you acquire the right attitude (Week 1) and the right look (Week 2), learn to laugh at your fears (Week 3), place yourself where there are hoards of elite and eligible men (Week 4), get out of your own way and let Mother Nature hurl the chaps at your feet (Week 5), E. Jean guarantees you will live happily ever after (or for as long as you can stand it) with the man of your dreams (Week 6).

A Note About the Note About the Author

The author doesn't want everybody thinking she's a love lorn twit because she's single. In fact, the author is living happily ever after all by herself in a cottage outside New York City, is enjoying just a ridiculously huge number of flings, and has been married the normal amount (twice). She has four rescued dogs. The author weighs either 128 or 133, depending on what she had for lunch.

From Publishers Weekly:

Elle romance columnist Carroll's advice on man catching can be boiled down to four mantras: be happy, look good, go where the guys are and just do it. Carroll stretches this advice out over 200 pages thanks to a witty prose style-and a spacious layout design-that usually works. The author tries her best to make this book appropriate for contemporary women, combining watered-down scientific theory about synchrony with advice on exactly what to say when flirting (biceps feature prominently). Readers are encouraged to be proud of who they are, but also to head over to the golf range or racetrack for maximum male populations. The author engages in some typical E. Jean-style (i.e. lighthearted) self-aggrandizing: numerous anecdotes highlight her fabulous lifestyle, her Vivienne Westwood suits, her butter-yellow convertible Cadillac, etc. Overall, however, the book is a fun, quick read, though the underlying theme-that the work of romantic love rests solely with smart, ever-so-slightly duplicitous women-may depress some readers. Carroll delivers a reasonable plan for what she promises, a six-week strategy for catching a guy (though not necessarily the dream man of her subtitle). No one who is familiar with her "Ask E. Jean" romance column would expect any less, or more.
