Compelling Underground Memoir

This is a fascinating journey by an author with marginal skills with the ladies (despite fame), who sets out on a life changing mission to master picking up women using the Mystery Method. The characters are philanderers, gigolos, wannabes, braggarts, and every dysfunctional category in between. Their quest is obvious, and thrust in your face; to sleep with as many beautiful women as possible. The author Strauss has written several best sellers, as well as for Rolling Stone, and literally has no competition when it comes to spinning tales of this type.

The other thought provoking mindbender that catapults your hooking up skills is The Professional Bachelor Dating Guide - How to Exploit Her Inner Psycho.

This is a devious sexual persuasion guide for hooking up, written by a psych doc who cruised the nightclubs with great success for a decade. It also contains an asset protection guide to set up pre-marriage to shield you from divorce.

Get these three, and get ready to laugh and learn. Really interesting books.

What a piece of BS

It would take a very insecure man to read this and try to use it on a woman. Most women see right through it. I had someone try it on me lol. didnt work. I am now with someone who hasnt even heard of it and is being himself.

    Disgusting

    I must say that no, I didn't read the whole book. But even if it ended with him denouncing these behaviors, this still would be like someone saying "okay here's how to get anthrax but don't do it because it's a really bad thing to do." It's a book not only about how to take advantage of someone for your own personal gain, it's a book about exerting straight, cissexual patriarchy because women are just disposablde objects that don't deserve equality. Misogynist trash. I would tell others to read this to see why feminism is still needed, but getting anything more than the free sample ebook would just funnel money to a bigot.

    Didn't like this book.

    I didn't like this 'bible' on how to bed women. Too long...I got it after the first 100 pages. Not the subject manner I am interested in reading about.
