Some Girls Do: why women do and don't make the first move by Margaret Leroy (HarperCollins, pounds 9.99). "Tina had an affair with an attractive young teacher at her school ... She'd wanted him and vowed she'd get him ... I asked her what she'd done. `I bounced bra-less in my games kit on a trampoline outside the window of his classroom,' she said." Simple really, but those of us not blessed with an anatomy that responds well to bouncing may have to make do with Ms Leroy's handy hints on "making the first move". Aimed midway between advice column and anonymous interview, Some Girls Do is an accessible analysis of Courtship Today ranging from Money to Danger by way of Mythologies and Looks and Smiles. Don't go clubbing without it.
