Neil Strauss' The Game

Neil Strauss’ “The Game” – Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists. A female friend of mine saw this book and immediately thought of me. She even offered to pick up a copy for me. At first, I was chuffed. Then I realised it’s not because I’m a great pickup artist but because she think I have no skillz. “I thought you might be after an ‘educating’ read.” Damn I’m hurt. :mrgreen:

From the Amazon link above, I saw this other book – The Complete A**hole’s Guide to Handling Chicks. Check out the bullet points:

  • How a five-dollar date can get you laid
  • How to stop being friends with girls and start getting them in the sack
  • Where you’ll have the best odds of finding a one-night stand, and how to get rid of the chick the next morning
  • How to trick a woman into thinking you’re classy, even if you have holes in your underwear
  • Why fat chicks always try to keep you from banging their hot friends, and how to finally stop these evil creatures
  • How to stop your wife from nagging you into an early grave
  • Why it’s possible to watch six hours of football, put the moves on your neighbor’s hot daughter, and leave the toilet seat up in the same day

    BM: The first one is more like a documentary. And, the second one does sound like a good laugh – it’s meant to be tongue in cheek. 🙂

    Lupin: it’s a different culture over in the US. Different techniques apply I assume.

    I like the sound of the book that you found better. sounds like a hillarious read. I don’t think any of it will work either.
    I don’t know if I can assign a cause-effect relationship but I have observed that the biggest success factors for a guy to pick up chicks is confidence and a touch of bastard. That’s why picking up chicks is difficult for those of us who can’t channel our inner bastard.

    Rob: from my prelim research on the topic, there are ppl who do take it very seriously and there are classes ppl pay good money for. They treat approaching women like a salesperson would approach a sale.

    Well, I’m back after having no Internet for AAGGESS…woo hoo!! SOOO good to have Net access at home again!
    I have a read a bit of that book; when I was working as a receptionist I found it in my married boss’s desk when I was looking for something else! he reckons he can get the most ugly, poor, guy with the worst social skills laid! It is quite interesting actually, you should have a read, if just for entertainments sake!
