Reads like a book-length Cosmo "how to get a man" article

This is my first review here. This book was so awful I felt compelled to review it. From the summary and reviews, I expected an in-depth exploration of legendary figures, their motivations, triumphs, and thoughts. What I got was a superficial overview that simplified these women into caricatures. Among the points given in this book are things like: if you want to be a siren, never wear sensible shoes, always try to seem taller than your audience via heels or sitting on top of furniture. It is literally that superficial. The author keeps referring back to her own "prowess" in her teens -- various stories of making men enthralled with her on summer vacations and the like -- through trite efforts like showing little interest in the man/boy. That's as in-depth as things get here in the theoretical sense. The explorations of each figure are only 3-5 pages each and most have significant space devoted to what I consider worthless and well-established information, like a nearly full page of Mae West's quotes, which any even passing fan has already read. There are interesting parts -- like that Catherine the Great had ladies in her entourage who "test drove" potential lovers to the queen would not waste her time on sub-par experiences. But, overall, this book was, at best, like reading a Wikipedia entry on each figure, and, at worst, like a long Cosmo article.

Lush & Lovely ~Simply Irresistible

Ellen T. White has scored with her lovely book "Simply Irresistible". The 264 page book is both a pleasure to look at and read. White begins by helping the reader identify their inner siren. The classic sirens are: Goddess, Companion, Sex Kitten, Competitor, and Mother. She uses a famous women in history as a case study to illustrate each. Marilyn Monroe, for example, is a classic Sex Kitten. White describes the behavior, clothes, attitude etc. Marilyn used to captivate her male audience that are typical of the "Sex Kitten" siren. After you have identified your style, White suggests you personalize your style and make it your own. She gives more case studies of women who have magnetized with their unique traits. Tips on putting your best foot forward, building your power base, making yourself so unforgettable.... The allure of many well known and lesser known women throughout history is covered. Jackie Kennedy Onasis, Coco Chanel, Cleopatra, Clare Booth Luce, Zelda Fitzgerald, Camilla Bowles and many others. Interspersed throughout the book are beautiful photos and illustrations. An index and resource section are included at the back. Lovely read! ~ Lee Mellott

An irresistible and empowering book

Once in awhile a book comes along that empowers you to feel good about yourself, and helps give you that extra nudge that you want to become the person you desire to be. What women does not want to be irresistible to the man of their choice. Through example of life story after life story this book tells many tales of a variety of different women and the power they held over the men that they were with. You don't have to be the most attractive, the best dressed, or the best anything to hold a man captive. You simply need to promote your best qualities be it a muse, a mother figure, a companion, or even a sex kitten to really attract a man. I like that it is suggested that you really just need to agument the best qualities that you already have and use those to your advantage. She uses many examples of a variety of different women such as Mata Hari, Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Windsor, Carol Lombard to name just a few. Each of these women are unique, just as each one of are. Through reading this book you will feel that you are unique and a special person completely capable of finding and holding that special person in your life.

A great study guide indeed

After reading this book I feel my siren skills needs some much brushing up. This is was a fun and enjoyable read. I tore into it and finished it within 2 days. All the women selected were fasinating case studies and there is definitely something to be said about becoming an unique or an irresistable woman. One thing that has often been repeated to me by my male friends that it is often a woman's attitude and or confidence that capture their attention and I think much of that is reflected in this book. Highly, highly recommended.

Hilarious and True

From the get-go this book made me laugh and was full of surprising, even startling, insights that chipped away at my (I suppose) hardened perspectives. The historical examples are entertaining, educational -- some even shocking -- but we also get the author's funny personal examples, which I especially loved. The author gives pointers like a wise and successful girlfriend who cares and can see things you don't. I gave a copy to a friend at work (it's a gorgeous gift) who reported back: "It's like a Bible."

It's just great!

This book is beautiful and so much fun to read. I found it enchanting, sophisticated, and very savvy when talking about these fabulous women. Unlike all those wordy thesis' about men are from Mars, etc., the author makes all her big, important points without psychoanalytic pretentions and gets to the heart of the matter much more quickly and succinctly. It's the first book that made me want to play the "game".
