Feminist philosopher Sinead Murphy was appalled to discover the advice given by the million-copy selling dating book The Rules (Grand Central, 2001), which teaches women about 'capturing the heart of Mr Right'. Instead, she suggests that the novels of Jane Austen, with their precise and eloquent prose, are the best antidote to The Rules, and can offer much better advice to modern women today. Ranging from Pride and Prejudice (1813) to Mansfield Park (1814), Murphy has written a dating guide like no other, delivering clear-eyed wisdom that is witty and true.
