From the Author

We are very gratified by all the good reviews our book has received, and for all the contacts and new students the book has generated. We appreciate all the comments on its comprehensive nature, straight-up tone, and many useful examples. We've received many e-mails and letters from all sorts of men--divorced men, college students, men in their 40's and 50's, and curious onlookers, all having benefited from the book. We are grateful that, through our book, seminars, and over-the-phone coaching sessions, we've had the opportunity to bring these tools and techniques to so many men.

We salute the men who have purchased this book, and who have started down the road to having an abundant sex life. We salute each guy who is on his way to becoming a true 'man's man': being powerful not only with women, but in every area of his life. We salute the men who are committed to doing whatever it takes to be able to say, 'I have exactly the sex life I want, and I know I can get the women I desire into bed.' Feel free to contact us with questions or comments.

    Not very Good

    I bought this book based on the previous recommendations. I submitted a review a week ago, but it was not posted. So, I'll try to be more PC. The book states the obvious. Dont do what Bob does, when he wakes up, he doesn't shower, picks up dirty underwear from the floor and wears wrinkled clothes. Bob can't understand why women say no. Oh really. You want to be like Bruce. Every woman he's around is beautiful, from the girls at the Gym, to the delivery girls to the girls in his office. Oh yea, and all the women he drives past. As written in the book, want to know how to score, buy a book on that topic. Best place to meet women, Expensive restaurants. Cant see going into an expensive one by yourself and cold calling people eating, but hey if you dont your odds of scoring are 0%. So take that chance, as it's all an odds game. This book is not for the average person with semi reasonable thoughts.

    It works...

    I bought this book just leaving a hard relationship. Its miraculous book and I jokingly tell friends that its the resource used by Will Smith in Hitch. Its amazing, it covers everything that you should do in dating and how to attract the one your looking for. I give it a 10 of 10!

    It's Just as the Title Says

    All guys who just can't understand why you're not meeting women, getting dates, or keeping women romantically interested in you, this is possibly the only book you will ever need. You will learn how to initiate conversations with women and let them know that you are attracted to them. You will learn how you can make and keep women attracted to you. This book won't make a guy attractive or interesting if he is incapable of doing so on his own, that's up to you. All women and all circumstances are different and no book will be there to help you know when you can and exactly how to 'close the deal,' you have to be perceptive and confident on your own. Learn not to be her therapist or her friend, period.

    Understand women (for once!)

    I never understood women¿until after I read two very informative books: this book and Fate¿s The Nice Guys¿ Guide to Getting Girls. Both books were right on the money about women. I `ve recently applied the things I¿ve learned in these books and they really have worked. I¿ve talked to more girls, got more numbers and been on more dates than ever before!! Both books were well-written as well as well-researched. After reading Louis and Copeland¿s book, I realized the many mistakes I had been making all these years. The advice in this book has helped me realize the sort of relationship I would like, communicate that effectively and actually enjoy the whole dating scene. I recommend this book and Fate¿s book to all guys¿single, in a relationship, or even married!

    Wish I could give it ZERO stars

    I am highly suspicious of the 'rave' reviews on here. They seem to be written by the same people...the authors perhaps? This book is complete garbage. Don't take my word for it! Before going out and BLOWING your money on it, I suggest going to a bookstore when you've got 3 hours on your hands to sit down and read it - NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. This book gives the most ridiculous advice I've ever heard. It's laughable. Let me share a few: 1) Carry a big stuffed animal to catch a womans attention. 2) Use hand puppets (are you kidding me?) 3) Calling a woman 'goddess' i.e. Thank you Sales Goddess...Hello, burger flipping Goddess. (seriously) 4) Borrow someone's baby to snare women. Believe me, it doesn't stop there. Louis & Copeland also mention the importance of bathing, using deodorant and housecleaning. What a revelation!! Who'd a thunk!?! Unbelievable. The only thing you'll 'Succeed' in is looking like a complete idiot. If you need further proof, go to Ron Louis & David Copeland's website and take a look at these supposed babe magnets. Yikes - is all I'm gonna say. If you realistically think these guys are heeding thier own advice and not paying for it, then go ahead...waste your money.

    I've No Doubt These Guys Have Sex...

    with some of the stupidest women on the planet. Success with a woman seems to men how to get sex with a woman. The authors don't seem to give men or women much credit. They tell the guys to keep their dates short so she won't discover your flaws, even if you're having a good time, because women will becomre bored with you within a few hours, and you'll mess up your chance for sex with her...that's right...use her instead. Enjoying her company? Too bad. That's not the point...the point is to get her in bed..so tease, conjole, manipulate, and then read the chapter on how to dump her so you can move on. It's just as sickening as The Rules was.

    Not worth the money!!!

    I bought this book about five years ago and I want my money back!!!!! This book gives some lame ideas to meet women For example, the four easiest places to meet women 1)coffee shop 2) gyms 3) restaurants 4)bookstores, BS. I have gone to these places and the secret ones the authors mentioned in the book and have not found any eligible women. This method does not work in a rural areas, you mainly run into old or married women in these palces. He suggests to use 'hand puppets' to attract women?????? You may get away with using 'babies' to attract women 'for a few minutes', most young eligible women will not date a man with a child or uses a child to attract women! I can see walking your dog may work but that doesn't help the guy who lives in an apartment and cannot have pets! The author suggest using Internet chat rooms as 'practice' in chating with women, its ok until you discover you are chatting with a 15y/o and of course 'spammers'. I used his suggestions to place a ad in the newspaper and received one response. The one I wrote myself generated multiple respones.

    GREAT BOOK

    I used to be some shy, dorky kid until this book broke me out of my shell. Now I find myself flirting with beautiful women everywhere, getting lots of smiles and phone numbers. It is just amazing how effective the flirting techniques in this book truly are. Thanks Ron & Dave

    This book is awesome, just plain awesome!

    I've been reading this book for over a month by now, and it rocks. I like the way it portrays women as the enemies to be outsmarted, rather than as delicate creatures to be befriended. Seeing women the way the book does really helped relax around them and be more confident, as well as to realize that showing interest is OK. You should print more of these books, guys.

    This book is freakin' awesome!

    This book is really good. It presents dating from a very practical point of view, describing not just WHAT to do, but also HOW to do it. I really like the way it breaks down a confusing process of dating into clear, mutually disjoint steps (flirting, priming date, seduction date, etc). Basically, it presents an organized plan of attack. One thing I don't like is that the book portrays women as shallow, greedy golddiggers, who seek to exploit men for all they're worth. As I read through the book, I noticed that it seemed more directed toward older men, rather than college students (like me); nonetheless, the information is very convincing, and the book is worth the $14.95 I paid for it.

    Many ideas you can use to improve your chances with women

    Although most of this is common sense, you will still find some good things in here that will improve your chances when asking for that date. The more you know, the better your chances with women. Look here for different ideas to use. This is great for guys who don't know a thing about approaching and dating women. For all others, you will find only a dozen or so good and different ideas to use. All in all, it's still a pretty good read. Perry Rose, author of Women, Sex And Dating, For The Single Man.

    this one tops the list

    I have read many books on how to meet and attract woman after my recent divorce. I was painfully shy and afraid of failing. The book is a manual not just for meeting and pleasing women, it is also a guide to dealing with people in general in an honest and forthright manner. I went from a lonely somewhat unhappy man to a social sucess with many women to date and have good relationships with in a serious and casual way. Its a lot about sex, but the total picture is even better when you open your mind to the principles of the book and enjoy life and the benifits of living to the fullest.

    This book will get you more and better dates

    Don't be fooled by the sometimes-boyish humor and occasional typos. The information in this book works. And not just in your love life, but anywhere confidence and a radiant personality can give you an edge. I couldn't pick up a woman to save my life before reading this, but the book gives you the approaches, the tactics and the mindset that get the job done. Things like how to be viewed as lover material and not just a friend; overcoming the fear of rejection; and getting that first kiss. After reading and re-visiting certain chapters, I've got more choices of dates than I do time. Some of the things the authors suggest are over the top, but in general, they give some pretty sound advice. It's hard work, don't get me wrong. But it's also fun and rewarding to build new relationships and to let some really fine women know how much you appreciate them. If you're a 'nice guy,' i.e., too shy to approach women, like I used to be, then buy this book. I'd like to thank the authors for helping me tap into the confident me I've always dreamed of being. At $11 and some change, the book is a real value. Nice job, guys.

    How to Succeed with Women

    Well, guess what. This book can be beneficial and it also may not be good for you. The authors want you to think anyone can use these principles to get women, and there is a lot of truth to that statement. But the bottom line is, it has to come from you. What does that mean? You are the source of your attractiveness, no matter what you look like you can be very attractive to women. With women, it's more about your personality and confidence (and you can't look like a total dork, you do need to make noticable efforts in your appearance) but the truth is, YES IT CAN WORK FOR YOU. But sadly, it will probably work for about 10% of the people who buy it. Why? because it needs to be read and applied whole heartedly. And I know you think you'll apply it, but there is a 90% chance that you won't. So DON'T BUY IT, unless you are sure you'll make use of it. How can you be sure, well just look at the last book you bought that was a self help title, maybe on finances or relationships or whatever, if you're looking at this book chances are you've bought some other self help book. Well, let me ask you a question, did you read that book in full and apply it. I think you and I already know what the answer is, NO. YOU DIDN'T READ IT (if you are in the 10%, I'm not talking to you). DON'T BUY IT, you'll do the same thing with this book, so don't waste your money or time. Go eat some junk food and watch TV, get out of my sight. On the other hand, you people in the 10%, THIS BOOK IS A GEM. I don't agree with everything in it, but there are definately many strategies and a lot of great advice. So, since you are in the 10%, I can't recomend any other book on women more highly than this one. YES MY FRIEND, you MUST BUY THIS BOOK. You're the type who's gonna use it and when you do, YOU'LL BE AMAZED, cause 80% of the stuff in this book works. READING IT ISN'T ENOUGH, thats why some critics are dissing this book, cause they just read it. Well, guess what YOU NEED TO APPLY IT IF YOU WANT TO GET ANYWHERE. I'm out.
