I read this book a few months ago at Kinokuniya Singapore. I was running out of cash and was in the middle of a dilemma, between buying this book or “The Alchemist” (English version) AND “The Rules of Life“. I HAD to choose the latter..*sob*
But I’ll get it as soon as I have enough money (pasti di Jakarta harganya lebih mahal deh, hiks..)
So with all due respect to men out there, we -yes I’m talking to you lady- should always keep in mind that men will be men, just like dogs will be dogs. 5 stars for this awesome-deep-smart-witty book!
I know you’re dying to know, so here’s a sneak peak:
DON’T GO FOR LOOKS
MAN: Handsome men are never a great bet. Often they have learned to rely on their looks and have not had to develop a personality or sense of humor — far more important qualities.
DOG: Don’t choose a dog for looks alone. Looks are only skin-deep — loyalty, devotion, and eagerness to please and unconditional love are the most wonderful things.
DON’T CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE
MAN: When you first meet your man, don’t change anything for him. Don’t give up your friends or hobbies. Never cancel anything to be with him.
DOG: When you first get a dog, chances are he will whine when you leave him alone, but he’ll get used to it and appreciate you more when you spend quality time with him.
GIVE POSITIVE REWARDS
MAN: When your man does something that you like — such as brings you a present — reward him. Give him a treat, spoil him.
DOG: All dogs love praise. Train a dog with positive rewards for positive behavior.
