Greg Behrendt on Amending His Book

Things change with time and as we all know, hindsight is 20/20, which is why I thought for sure that Greg Behrendt would jump at the chance to add things to his best-selling book He's Just Not That Into You if given the opportunity. I was actually wrong, but if you want to understand his rationale, just


Is there anything that you wish you could add to the book now, five years later?

I think we said it in there, but I think the thing that I think should be said in any self-help book is: "This is a book. This is one person's opinion. Take what you need and leave the rest." Some people tend to go to books and find some dogma or mantra — Liz and I weren't trying to start a religion, we simply put our point of view down and I think there's some really valid things in the book that are probably echoed in other texts around the world. It's all about honoring yourself. At the end of the day, you're responsible for your decisions. Don't let a book do the thinking for you.

I read the book for kicks and as amusing as some points were a lot of it seemed kind of stereo typical of the "average" guy.
