If you just want to get laid there are many easier books out there which can help you accomplish that. However, if you really want to know how to get under someone's skin there is no better book. This book is not evil. this book is a technology. It is a lot like a chainsaw. If you use a chainsaw for what it was meant to be used for, you can do things with it that are great- you can cut down the tree that is about to fall on your house, you can cut timber to build a new one, or even get some wood for a cozy fire. However, we also all know that we can use a chainsay for purposes that are evil. You can use this information for good or for evil. The choice is up to you. This book will show you the character traits that people love and how to use them for mutual benefit. It will help you learn how to give and receive pleasure. If you want to use these techniques for self enrichment, you can do that too. The number one lesson of the book for women is that any woman can seduce almost any man if she is a sexual woman, a fun playmate, and looks for the best in a men and draws it out. Any man will fall in love with a woman like that. Likewise, for a man, almost any woman will fall in love with a man who is able to express his sexual desires in a classy way, who is able to relax and let a woman feel attached to him, who provides romance, and who pays attention to her. The book clearly spells uout the fact that we are seduced by that which we are missing. Nobody wants to be around those who are insecure or are simply miserable SOB's. We love those people who are able to create their own reality which is fun, happy, and pleasant. We love the people who only see the good in us and not the bad- those who make us feel good about ourselves. Finally, seducers are able to indirectly create interest and desire, enter the spirit of the other person, go out on a limb for others, lead the other person astray, provide pleasure, pull back a little to make the other person chase them, and finally make the bold move to seal the deal. This book gives examples of how the world's most seductive people have done these things, sometimes for their own benefit, and sometimes for mutual benefit. How you use the techniques and develop your own personality is up to you. This book helps you understand those people around you. You will be able to help them root out components of their personality that hurt them. If I could give the book 10 stars I would. It is neither good nor evil. It is about the truth about hman nature. How you use its wisdom is up to you.

The biggest problem I had with Mr. Greene's book was that he reduces seduction down to simple psychology instead of what it is, an art. Yes, he did his research about the great seducers of history, but he analyzes it in such a logical manner (as if love and seduction were logical) that it didn't convince me. He lists several seduction strategies and personalities and asks you to find your style as if it were a pair of shoes, and tries to make you believe that if you follow his step-by-step guide you'll seduce anyone. Well, I have to disagree with him. I think it takes a lot more than just being psychologically dexterous to seduce a person. If it were as easy as getting a Masters Degree in psychology, everyone in the mental health profession would have an enviable love life, and I truly don't think that is the case.

    Definition of EVIL

    Hurting a person or people for your own personal gain is in essence evil. This author and the many readers who praise this subject aprove of manipulating others for what you want regardless of how the other person felt emotionally after the lies, deciet, and sexual trickery. I did not see it mentioned that this is also a prime example of poor or weak character.

    Repugnant

    The most disgusting, offensive and morally dirty book I have ever read. This is not a book on seduction, it is a book about the best way to humiliate, debase and make a quivering fool out of any person, male or female just for the pleasure of a sadistic player. Should be put in the garbage tin. I cannot give this book less than one star, but less than that I give.
