mystery method or the game for dummies.

The into is long and the audio is someone practicing speech cadence, with drags out this very short book. The information is good, but lacking as an item that you purchase, instead of getting everything you might need it serves as an advertisement for puatraining.com, repeatedly. and while having additional research material sources is fantastic, it just feels like I paid for a pamphlet with some tips I could easily find online, and an advertisement to more material to purchase. Books like the mystery method, and the game while sometimes being harder to comprehend, at least give you everything you need to develop yourself, and any additional research you do will just speed up your results, where as here you're basically getting the game light, with some additional examples of personal experience. Those examples are great! but the book left me feeling that it was lacking in content and learns too hard on "buy a pick up boot camp!" or "it's in much better detail on puatraining.com." Those aren't quotes, just what I felt the book was really saying.

Brought back my game I lost years ago

While listening to the book, I realized that a lot of the advice was very familiar to me. But it was the old me. I was younger, braver, had more hair, had less weight. I used to never struggle with women but over time if you "don't use it, you lose it". A lot of factors play into this but that's beside my point of reviewing this book. This book truly will help you reach your goal if it's just getting laid or looking for something serious like a long term relationship. For me it helped me get to know a girl I had a huge crush on at work. The best part is that you don't need to use every step in the process. You can choose which parts fit best in the situation you're in. For me it was all about getting to know someone better by leading the conversations and having in depth, meaningful and personal communication. It worked! I was able to get the girl to find me attractive and advance our friendship into something more. Buy this book now, it will change the way you think and give you all the right tools to reach whatever your goal might be.

Very insightful

This book is a lot easier to understand than the Mystery Method book. Instructs you on how to meet and start conversations with women and how to gain their interest. A good book to pair this one with would be 3% Man by Cory Wayne. Natural teaches you how to meet and attract, 3% man teaches you how to keep that attraction and to be good at the relationship itself.

Saved lives

I used to think that I would molest women to get satisfaction, this book SAVED ME from not doing that but getting them to want me. I don't have to struggle getting girls to like me. Girls tell me some of the most sweetest things to me that I've never heard before. Plus I was even thinking about killing myself the other day before getting this book.

for a beginner. .

it has some good advices for dudes that are completely out of touch with girls, the narrator make it interesting in the way he reads the book but overall the author lacks in more information about females and situations instead he provides his website for more information ...

awesome for Pua 's & beginners

Looks like Audibles limits you to 13 words, so gave me missing key's. loved the craftyness of approaching and so many different angles that are crucial points you can get stuck in at courting. I highly resonated with his story of staying in a the wrong relationship, just because I was happy to have one.

significantly reasonated with his style as opposed to Mysteries or The game. Also in regards to RSD (which is pretty much his angle ,but some of mysteries... which they all are, but then that's NLP... : ). Anyhow all and all I loved it because it showed me Where I was lacking and gave good foundation. Yea he also promotes his workshops, but at least he's giving you an alternative , instead of just alluding the real answers. I mean it's how he makes his lively Hood, so he should try to create some residual or at least new business.

*sigh* Alas my fear wasn't talking to women it was Always Closing. But after observation to my actions compared to this, I understand I was setting the wrong frame, giving mixed signals, giving up to easy and even becoming defenensive, not realizing all along I was giving mixed signals & ignoring I.o.I.'s! It also explains the behavior of ex lover's and their attitudes towards me after "like still in love"ish, but never again..😰

Too pickup artist-y

"Natural" and "effortless" don't go with all this Pickup Artist nonsense. When they start talking day game and night game, I tune out. Women are not video games and these techniques are far from natural. They feel contrived and even a bit predatory to me. If you're still into the PUA thing, skip this and go re-read "The Game", at least that book is entertaining.

I've been sold this stuff before, there's nothing new here.

I had an amazing time but it never called me back

Was a shy orphan. Couldn't connect with the ladies. Read this book. Became Alpha. Go out to the town. See beta guy with hot woman. Destroy guy's game. Take his wife. Same night close. Morning after find my baby picture on dresser. MFW realize she's my mother (*o*). Poke eyes out. 4/5 would listen to Audiobook again.
