Not Bad, He Actually Makes Sense
Let me preface this review by saying I generally hate these types of books, written by men and designed to help them get their groove on with us hapless women who are supposed to throw ourselves to their feet once they read the book.
Now that that bit of a rant is over, let me tell you why I read this book. I actually read this on a friend’s ereader (I won’t name names, but he did need a little help in this department). So, I read the book in like, ten minutes, and thought, ‘Okay, this guy’s not a complete jerk’.
Stephen Williams has pulled together some great practical advice that actually seems to want to help his readers develop an actual relationship, not just get them in the sack with the first thing that says ‘hi’. I thought his writing style was nice, straightforward, and easy to follow. The book was concise, and to the point.
Williams points out that this book is to help men get women to notice how irresistible they are, a fact that a lot of guys just don’t seem to know how to do. It offers practical advice in a friendly, informational way without sounding pushy or creepy. While many women would probably pass it up, they should consider buying it for husbands or boyfriends, especially if their other half has issues feeling good about themselves.
Basically, more men need to realize that looking after themselves and projecting self-confidence is sexy. Women really want a man who knows what he wants, doesn’t play games, has good hygiene, and listens when they talk. Williams seems to understand his audience very well, and speaks to them like a good friend offering helpful advice.
I think that this is a great book for men who want to not only get a woman interested, but keep her interested, and develop a deep, lasting relationship. After all, when a man projects himself as the man of our dreams, we definitely want to keep him, right ladies? I can’t say it enough…confidence is key! If you don’t like yourself, women are not going to be interested, no matter what you look like.
This book could have been a little longer, but for a quick start guide to gaining confidence and learning a few seduction skills, it’s not bad. I would like to see if the author has any other books available, his writing style is easy to read, and his advice is practical. The book would make a great gift for someone struggling to find a partner, or even as a cute gift for your husband to amp up your relationship. I have to say, my friend benefitted from it, and now has a great girlfriend who has helped him realize what a great guy he is, so for him, it was money well spent.

The Art of Seduction Simplified!
It's really sad to think about how much men have lost their way especially when it comes to seducing the opposite sex. Stephen was very
right in the opening section of this book to say "Women love to play hard-to-get especially when they feel the man will chase her at all
cost.". It is so true and not for the fact that it really boosts the ego to be pursued by someone rather it is because that's the way it should
Women are wild exotic creatures that should be hunted down and captured. We enjoy the thrill of being chased and eventually becoming
a willing captive. Although the idea of well crafted males dressed in lion cloth barely covering the nether regions is quite tempting, to hunt
us prized creatures, men do not require spears, guns or bow and arrows. All that is required is an understanding that women should
always be treated as rare pearls and a copy of this simple but effective guide to learning the art of seduction.
I personally like the idea of being seduced because it demonstrates a genuine effort by the man to show me just how much I am worth.
Not all men put in this effort and somehow manage to turn things around making the woman the aggressive hunter. I think in those
cases unless being the pursuer has to do with playing a role in a domination/ submission type scenario then the man that sits like a
king waiting for women to grovel at his feet isn't worth the throne he sits on.
Men were born to be hunters and women were born to be the object of pursuit. Stephen gives a few very basic pointers to steer the male
desirous of capturing the heart of a female. It is not an exhaustive guide which means that its up to the reader to fill in the gaps by
exercising innovation. This is foundation reading and something for the potential hunter to build on. As you along, I believe that you will
become better and better at making a woman swoon but you should not expect that fantastic results will be achieved on the first try.
My advice to men reading this book is not to start counting the chickens before they hatch. Remember there is a code that protects the
heart of a woman and it is not that easy to crack. What this book will help you do is to have fun taking a stab at cracking those codes and
learn from each experience.
This book is short and the content is not going to blow you away. But that's okay. People place a lot of high expectations on 'how to'
books to have the sure fire solution but when it comes to matters of the heart, there is no science involved. It's all an art and success
depends on the painter willing to create a masterpiece on an otherwise empty canvas.

This book simplifies the art of seduction
Whether you’re 18 or 58, if you have a difficult time approaching a woman, this book might just give you the boost you need. It covers the basics of how to make the woman love you back and how to hook her into you and unto your bed. It simplifies a complicated process that even beginners can understand. It’s like a manual on how to act around ladies.
To give you a little spoiler, this book will help you work on your confidence while teaching you some dating and seduction tricks. No more awkward moments, no more waiting for the right opportunity and no more standing in the corner all alone!
The way Stephen William writes is very fluid and easy to grasp. It takes just 1 sitting to get all the basics. After reading the book, you’ll probably have a “face-palm” moment like I did. It’s like… “Why didn’t I think of that?” The book will empower you to go after what you want without delay.
The only drawback I can think about is that I wish the book was a little bit longer. I guess I can’t really complain there since while it’s short, it did cover all the things I needed to know and then some. It’s a light read book. I would recommend this to ever guy who needs that extra nudge. You won’t have to spend hours or days reading this. Less time reading means more time working the new skills you’ve learned. Read this book—It really helps!

Seducing – tips that work.
Have you ever thought about the question – why it’s so easy to seduce any woman for some men, and why it’s so hard – for others? As a woman, I might say, it’s not easy to give a reasonable answer to this question. A lot of personalities are around – a lot of characters and priorities. Usually I find such type of books, which open “seducing secrets”, very funny. Especially if they are written in a very serious manner. However, I like this Stephen William’s book. He gives simple advices and writes with great humor. This is the only way for such books can be useful. I catch myself thinking, “oh, this can really works with me”. The writing style of the book is simple, men of every type, age and appearance can use all tricks and tips. Seducing is not a question of some special aspect of personality, it’s all about having appropriate information and a lot of practice.
Advices of this book are important for everyone who loves, or who likes a beautiful woman. Just fit everything to your character and choose the best actions to be with someone you are interested in.

Are you trying to find your special someone? Maybe you've been looking in all the wrong places or you've been doing all the wrong things to let them know you're interested. Starting a relationship takes work. It also takes some knowledge about women and what they're looking for in a man. That means you may need a little advice on how to get her attention and how to make her fall in love with you. It's actually not as complicated as you may think and you could be on your way to real love.
This book is all about how to gain confidence. After all, without confidence you might not even talk to a woman that you're interested in. So the first thing to do is build up your confidence. The next thing is to learn how to get her attention and seduce her. It means being romantic and making her believe that you are the only man for her. With this book, you'll learn how to do that. Stephan Williams wrote a book about how to get a woman to really care about you. This isn't about getting a woman into bed. This is about finding someone special.
That's one reason that I actually thought this book wasn't so bad. He's not giving you a book on how to get lucky quickly with some woman you meet in a bar. He's giving you advice on how to find the one. This involves treating a woman right and making her feel important and special. Without a little advice, you may never realize that it just takes the right words for a woman to feel that way. You'll be able to learn what it takes.
For some women this might seem like some kind of scheme to make men appear more attractive or make them into something they're not just for the purpose of winning you over. But it's really not. The techniques discussed in this book aren't about faking your way into a woman's heart. They're about getting her to give you a chance. They're also about making minor changes to yourself not just for the purpose of winning her over but for the purpose of keeping her for yourself. These are ways that men can change themselves in order to win over a woman rather than simple schemes or pick-up lines that men use in a bar.
This is a great book for any man who's had trouble getting the woman he likes. It'll help you gain some confidence and get yourself out there where you want to be. Don't just sit back and watch the women pass you by. It's time to get out there and find the right woman for you.

Ever encounter someone whose very presence manages to supersede your sense of decorum and propriety? I'm talking about someone who evokes irrational urges to act goofy; who causes you to go weak in the knees with the merest of glances cast your way from them; who stirs up all sorts of evocative fantasies that you never even knew you had the capability to create.
Folks, we're talking puppy love on steroids. And this has happened to all of us at some point in our lives.
Why does it happen? Some social scientists and psychologists surmise that emotion, biology and physiology all play recurring roles in this uniquely human phenomenon. Whereas animals mate strictly for promoting the survival of their species, humans are much more selective in whom they want and desire in a mate. Additionally, humans' thought processes have evolved over thousands of years to a point where we have developed the power to think, reason, deduce, discriminate, and rationalize---all examples of higher-level intellectual processes that have allowed us to make choices that affect our lives to varying degrees.
I really doubt that Fido or Bossy will be picking mutual stock funds anytime soon.
All references to Wall Street and Darwin aside, humans are forever making both conscious and subconscious choices when seeking out potential partners. Often we seek others with similar commonalities and belief systems; our unique subjective interpretation of what is beautiful and sexy and what isn't further hones our desired priorities in another person and allows us to practice our emotional and social skills on a variety of life stages known by all of us through the years as friendship, crushes, infatuation, dating, etc. The venues and script change, but the emotions are universal and unchanging: excitement, fear, nervousness, anger, delight, sorrow, ennui, and so forth.
I remember watching a program on the Discovery Channel about the human face. John Cleese was the narrator of this three-part series about why we are so fascinated with the face---a visage that radiates countless variations of the human emotional spectrum and is the primary source of attraction between two people. He interviewed numerous scientists and sociologists about our lips, ears, mouth, smile, facial structure---but focused primarily upon the eyes.
Are eyes truly the windows to the human soul, as so poetically expressed by countless scriveners?
Stephen Williams's title "How to Seduce a Woman: Make Her Want You" encourages the reader to utilize the innate powers of emotion found within all of us, in particular those that allow us to initiate contact with another person.
The primary sources? The eyes, and mouth and the hands.
By initiating eye contact and holdiing it for a sustained period of time, both people are able to make silent decisions as to how much personal space and emotion they are willing to cede in order to pursue a further, more complex, relationship---one that could lead to exclusive dating and potential marriage down the road. "Seduce" emphasizes the cumulative importance of practicing this behavior numerous times until one can pull it off with smoothness and aplomb.
But the eyes are not the only source of seduction. Words can have the same effect. People can become mesmerized with one another's speech patterns and styles. Why are Shakespeare's sonnets still read aloud by lovers to each other who are in the beginning throes of romance?
