Fire your shrink. And maybe cancel your HBO subscription. Who needs Sex and the City when you have Heimel's wickedly hilarious essays on the mating game? In a sequel to 1983's bestseller Sex Tips for Girls, Heimel tells how to dump a guy ("What are answering machines for if not to break up with people who bore you?") and lists types to avoid ("He's bald, yet has a ponytail").

To get inside the male brain, Heimel even tests testosterone by wearing a pharmaceutical patch for two days ("The beer bored me, but the football game was entirely interesting"). It's all snappy fun, a book for days when "you can't decide whether to shoot yourself or have a pedicure." (Simon & Schuster, $22)

Bottom Line: Dishy advice for the lust lorn
