E! News co-anchor Giuliana DePandi discussion and signing for her new book,Think Like A Guy



E! News co-anchor discussed and signed copies of Think Like A Guy at Borders Books & Music Michigan Avenue store.
Ever wonder why some women get the guy and others end up in therapy wondering what went wrong ?

This book might have the answers on the rules of dating from a woman's perspective on how a man views women's words and actions and how to avoid the trap,keep your sanity and be that bird of perfect mystery he can't wait to be with. You could always read the long as infinity daily or weekly musings of Christian Carter's "Catch Him And Keep Him" on men and relationships.However that will probably keep you too busy reading for a year to even date anyone.Or, you can pick up this nice size softcover at your local Borders and get some good sage advice at a user friendly price.

I never thought I'd agree with a relationship book but this one does have some witty reminders on life and love that after awhile you just forget.

When men show up at a booksigning and nod their head in "amen style" agreement during a book discussion like this; rest assured the author is onto something.


Happy reading.
