The lines used to ensnare them are practised over and over again, until they become routine- so routine that sometimes the pick up artist can't even remember what he said. Rather, I was intrigued into reading this book by curiosity. Our society is filled with women and men who are lonely and bored and stuck and who want desperately to connect and live and have fun but don't know how to get there. And because he's a thinking person who got into it because he genuinely felt he lacked something, he's the same type who would of course leave the community when he realized that the community had much more limited interests and values. Oddly compelling and highly recommended.
Strauss is not a missionary for the movement, but instead charts his own relationship with the seduction community from skepticism to enthusiasm to ambivalence to rejection. He changes everything from his hairstyle to his walk and even his conversation, all just so he could get some action. Just let them be so. I guess some of both. I blitz, I make sure the back takes me. At the same time two of my American roommates were fighting over a balding, short, bespeckled geologist who smoked way too much pot and had abandoned his pregnant girlfriend back in the states to run off to Prague. I've been reading a little about Cluster B personality disorders, and I think the rules and attitudes outlined in this book relate a lot to that.
What do these people do? The author, Neil Strauss, has ghost written some celebrity memoirs, and writes for Rolling Stone and the New York Times. Part of the book details the seminars, which include in-the-field portions, where the teacher and students go to clubs so the teachers can show off their skills at picking up women. . It's pathetic, the book, the men in it and their cult. If the book is an attempt at non-fiction, then the number of devotees is nothing short of tragic. I wasn't reading that carefully at the beginning.
I mean I read The Selfish Gene which I think sadly is on Mystery's recommended reading list , and that is not the message I took away from that at all. That said, it passed the time. Yet when Strauss writes about them in The New York Times, they're thrilled. He is so shy that he cannot use a urinal, because peeing in front of other guys terrifies him. He also mentions that at one point he was seeing ten different girls in multiple long-term relationships, and they all knew he was seeing other girls, but none of them left him.
She looked perfectly pretty to me. So bereft of charisma are most of the people who haunt the lothario chatrooms that anyone with a modicum of self-awareness and humour can take command. I think it's that last aspect that disturbs me the most. Male, female, young, old, black, white, Latino: all walks of life are represented. He is also the coauthor of four other bestsellers--Jenna Jameson's How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, Mötley Crüe's The Dirt, and Marilyn Manson's The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, and Dave Navarro's Don't Try This at Home. Use women as objects, make them their property.
This isn't because the universe is cruel. Once your child has picked up number 10, review the numbers. I picked this book up mainly to see what psychological aspects would be revealed about meeting women. I was also in a strange country where I didn't speak the language. But that is not what this book is about. That the book implies that men and women are really all that different.
Also, I got it from the library so that would be rude and I'd have to pay for it anyway. You know how there's always the shy, but kind of nice, guy in every group of men?

And so the cycle continues until everyone is miserable. One scene involved a teacher with a student and the teacher was talking to a woman and her husband appeared and told the guy she was his wife. The author states that everything in the book is true and it actually happend, but I have serious doubts that most or any of it is true. It also makes it so that there are no cultural differences.
