Journalist Marita Alonso presents an unmissable, sarcastic and clever book about love (that’s hardwired by Disney), sex (both clean and filthy), men (married ones, singles ones scared of commitment and wallflowers with testosterone) and women (uncensored).  

The author of this book doesn’t believe in the idea of self-help nor guides that claim to fix everything in your life. For this reason, she decided to write this anti-guide based on her horrendous experiences, which can act as a guide on what not to do.
Can you be happy without living the life of a rom-com character? Tired of reading Marita’s stories, they then act as a form or reverse reasoning and there you have it: the ideal way of being someone who holds their middle finger up to love.
The illustrations of Alfonso Casas, one of the most original and romantic illustrators around, add humor and affection to this hilariously entertaining book.
