    Formerly clueless male

    As a clueless man when it comes to picking up girls, I decided I needed help, so I bought a few books, and this book and Fate¿s ¿The Nice Guys¿ Guide to Getting Girls¿ are by far, my two favorites. These books hit the nail on the head when it comes to picking up girls. Fischbarg¿s book is hilarious and the techniques in this book are well-described and really easy to implement. This book is for you if you want some useful, intelligent, and amusing perspectives on the different ways men and women interact. All guys looking to meet women should read this book!
