This book is the complete guide to meeting women, approaching them, getting their contact information, asking them out, planning a first date, having great sex, and building a stronger relationship. The authors, 2 average guys who were pathetic with women utnil they set out on a mission to better understand women, share everything they learned on their journey. They became friends with numerous girls and now understand everything - from how women want to be appraoched to what they are looking for on a first date, from what makes them sleep with a man to what makes them stay in a relationship. Fate and Reil, co-founders of the successful personal advice website, Make Every Girl Want You, have taught thousands of men how to meet more women, have more sex, and build stronger relationships.
After their first release of this book in July 2002, Fate & Reil were quickly crowned as the experts in both the fields of picking-up women and dating, as they pertain to both casual & serious relationships. They have since shared their expertise on NBC's The Other Half, have gone toe to toe with Bill O'Reilly on The O'Reilly Factor, and have served as experts on The Ricki Lake Show. They have also been invited to teach their courses at the prestigious Learning Annex in both New York City & San Francisco, which they currently do on a monthly basis. Additionally, they have shared their findings with the world on The Jamie (White) & Danny (Bonaduce) Show, Don & Mike, Bubba the Love Sponge, Dee Snider Radio, & dozens of other shows - too numerous to name!
p. 11: “We simultaneously committed ourselves to becoming friends with a multitude of women. We would go out with these girls, and watch other guys try to pick them up, some successfully and many unsuccessfully. A year of study resulted in us uncovering three invaluable articles of knowledge for success with women: how girls want to be picked-up, what they're expecting on a first date, and how they want to be treated in a relationship—any relationship.”
p. 19: “CCR is based on the fact that the needs of men and women are inherently different. Guys are simple—we want attractive women. Of course personality and intelligence matter, but a woman has to have, at least a little, some conventional beauty; otherwise, a good personality is really irrelevant.”
p. 19: “It’s a myth that women like guys who are jerks. And here’s where and how this myth originated. Back in high school and college, about 10% of the guys realized that because they either played on a sports team, were in a popular fraternity, or were really good-looking, they got a lot of girls. What ended up happening is that this 10% got so many girls that they naturally became arrogant and cocky. What this looks like to the remaining 90% of the male population is that these guys get women because they're jerks. That's simply not the case.”
p. 20: “We ran an experiment to prove this point [that jerks get women]. We took seven of our closest male friends and made a pact. For two straight weeks, we went around trying to pick up women acting like complete jerks. We all failed miserably. Not one of us picked up a girl in ten nights of trying. Conclusion: you can't get girls by being a jerk.”
p. 22: “It's not physical attraction alone that makes a woman fall for a guy, but a complex combination of things, such as how a guy makes her feel about herself, how well he listens to her, and whether she thinks he views her purely as a sex object, to name a few. As mentioned, we will never be rich, famous, or good-looking; luckily, however, we've figured out that by focusing on other aspects of attraction, women actually consider us hot!”
p. 24: “The first step in the dating game is getting the girl to go out with you. To give you a chance. To make her say to herself, ‘You know, this guy isn't rich, isn't famous, and isn't particularly handsome, but I really enjoy being with him. I like the way he makes me feel.’”
p. 35: “There is a key difference between being a Man of CCR and a doormat. This difference is being able to convey to women that your life does not revolve around them. If you come running every time a girl calls, then she will realize that she can walk all over you.”
p. 36: “We've all heard the myth that nice guys can't get girls. This is completely untrue. It is because most "nice guys", even guys who use CCR, don't show these women that they have a life. If a nice guy is using CCR and isn't getting girls, it's because he's dwelling on women, rather than having a life of his own.”
p. 37: “A point about sincerity now: CCR will fail if you are not sincere in your actions. We are not telling you to go around fabricating compliments and acting like you care about women’s problems. What we’re telling you is that if you truly like someone, then you should care not only about her good points, but also about helping her through tough situations.”
p. 39: “When you walk up to a random girl in a bar, walking down the street, or in a bookstore, do you know what the first thing is that usually goes through her mind? It's usually along the lines of ‘Why is this guy bothering me?’”
p. 40: “The more attractive the girl, the more likely it is that you're not the first guy to come along and interrupt her that day. She's probably been approached on the subway on her way to work, while she was at work, while she was out grabbing lunch, and again on her way home.”
p. 49: “So you're out and surrounded by women. But the first step in actually meeting a woman is walking over to her and starting a conversation. So what's the best approach? There is actually a distinct pattern to successful introductory conversation between a male and female, and here is how it should go:…”
p. 50: “So now the obvious question: What should Question #1 be? Well, forget all of those cheesy pickup lines…”
p. 63: “Don’t try to impress women with the clothes you wear, the car you drive, your bulging biceps, or your Ivy League vocabulary. This doesn't do it…”
p. 64: “Confidence is crucial, and it’s something that you really can’t fake. When you are confident, you don’t need to talk about yourself. You don’t need to show your muscles. You don’t need to use big words to sound like you’re smart. You're secure and comfortable with who you are, and that is attractive to women.”
p. 68: “Don’t complain about anything when you've first met a woman. Any small comment can be misconstrued as a giant complaint…”
p. 70: “By implementing CCR you will naturally gain confidence. It is the difference between simply being a counselor to women, and being someone they want.”
p. 70: “Why do women love confidence? The reason for it is simple: it makes them feel secure…”
p. 71: “If you don’t have confidence, don’t try to fake it. Accept that you have only had limited success with women, and realize that your confidence will grow over time. Keep in mind that there’s a difference between confidence and cockiness. Every other piece of literature we’ve read tells guys that to "get" the girl you’ve got to have an air of cockiness about you. They claim that once you enter the friend zone with a female your chances of sleeping with her are doomed. This is an extremely short-sighted view.”
p. 75: “How many times have you or one of your friends talked to a girl, had great conversation with her, yet left without getting her contact info? We've done it dozens of times ourselves, and yet there's no reason for it. You're so happy that you met a really cool girl and had great conversation; yet you spend the rest of the evening (and often the next day) kicking yourself for not having the nerve to ask for her contact info.”
p. 75: “What if there were a way to make [asking a girl out] less gut-wrenching, a way to make it less of a risk? A way to make it so comfortable and casual that you do not even think twice about doing it?”
p. 78: “Women want to know that you are interested in them as a person, not as a sex object… The hotter the woman, the more impressed she’ll be if you show interest in her as a person. Hot women are used to guys in aggressive pursuit. They’re used to every guy wanting them. When you play it cool, it’s a new experience for her, and she’ll find it intriguing…”
p. 80: “One of the main problems that guys have is that no one ever teaches us the proper way to date. There's no course in school, and our fathers usually don't teach us, not that they actually know anyway. What little we do know about dating we usually learn from watching TV, but that mostly shows guys inviting girls to dinner and a movie…”
p. 80: “One important thing that never occurs to most guys is making the woman feel as relaxed and comfortable around you as possible. Most guys don't realize this, but women are often very intimidated and untrusting of men's intentions (and can you blame them?).”
p. 81: “How much money you spend on a girl during a date does not matter, either. The fact that money matters on dates is a huge myth, which causes a lot of guys to waste tons of money trying to impress the woman… The most important thing is how well you connect with a girl, and how much fun the two of you have, not how much money you spend on her.”
p. 95: “Let's now move on to the games people play in the early stages of a relationship. Here's one word of advice: DON'T. You should never feel hurt if you invite a woman to do something and she doesn’t want to do it or can’t make it… Forget pride. If she doesn't respond to a call or e-mail right away, don't let that stop you from trying to contact her again. It's not a contest…”

This is an interesting book on dating for guys. It's bascially how to be a better guy and get women to notice you, things like that. It's not too overblown and it's creepy like some of those other books out there.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Here are other books I recommend: 1) #1 by far on all dating books is 'How To 'Pick Up' Beautiful Women' by John Eagan. 2)'U.S.S.' By Leil Lowndes tis was good too. 3)'How to meet the right woman.' By Roger Ratcliff,David Conaway and Diana Ohlsson this was not bad. 4)'Understanding Women' By Romy Miller. 5)'How to chat up women.'By Stewart Ferris.(the bigger edition). You can find more books under the subjects of 'how to pick up women','how to pick up girls' and 'dating' on this site.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I bought the book last week, applied its principles over the weekend, and managed to turn my wife into a complete sex fiend! Forget the Viagra and the 'male enhancement' pills.

I heard Steve Reil on 98 KUPD in Phoenix, and had to run out and buy this book. The more and more I think about it, the more it makes perfect sense. I¿ve had previous success with women. It seems I've had it most when I¿m naturally practicing CCR (and that¿s before ever reading this book and knowing what I was doing!) Another great point these guys make is not being a doormat: if one focuses on a particular girl too much too soon, he lets his entire sense of self-worth be tied in to what that particular girl thinks of him. So every single little thing he does has more risk because he gets his affirmation from her and he, in essence, becomes her doormat. And that¿s very unattractive to a girl when you¿ve only recently started dating her. That seems to be the whole key to relinquishing desire over the short term. And of course the other elements need to kick in ¿confidence, sincerity, and the rest of CCR. Being a good friend and fun guy to be around. I¿ve read other books on getting women. But everything I have learned from these guys makes more and more sense. Other books I have read are too much garbage. This book is into techniques based on true principles. Other books seem to advocate various principles without giving you technique to overcome it. Thanks to Fate and Reil for their contribution to society.Was this review helpful?

I just took Fate¿s class at the Learning Annex in NYC on Tuesday and realized that men need to change their mindset if they want to have luck with women. I'll need to refresh the lessons they teach over and over until I memorize them. I also plan to reread the book (already read it once) a couple of times. Like most guys, I'm not big on reading relationship-type material. Luckily, their book is short and very easy to read (read it in an hour). The presentation in class was excellent, but I¿m glad I bought the book as well because there¿s more in here that we didn¿t even cover in class. One thing that really stood out the most to me was the example where the guy (Jeremy) took notes after talking to a woman (Marissa). After he had gotten her contact info, he took the pen from the bar, went into the bathroom, & jotted down a few things about her onto the cocktail napkin she had written her contact info on. I realized a couple of years ago how important this is. After talking to a few women, it's so easy to mix up the likes and dislikes of each, and to forget to follow up with each about the things coming up in her life that she mentioned in the conversation. Jotting down a few notes is critical. Women leave us tests like 'my daughter's birthday is March 3rd, three days before mine'. Any guy who misses out that she just told him her birthday is March 6th is going to miss out big time. Anyway, this is only one of many valuable pointers that I learned in class and from the book. The book really follows a very logical flow: where to meet women, how to approach them (how to start a conversation, how to keep it going), how to get contact info, how to make future contact, how to ask a woman out. And with each step, they provide very logical, informative pointers and advice. Thanks to Fate for a great class, and to Fate and Reil for a great book.Was this review helpful?

I live in Ontario California and I first heard these guys on the Jamie & Danny morning radio show (Star 98.7 in Burbank) back in October. I was in my car on the way to work and as soon as I got in the office I jumped on the website. Once I read the first chapter I was hooked! I think these guys have some great ideas. What they say makes a lot of sense and I just never thought of picking up girls this way. I've told all my friends about the book and we are going to try to master the skills. (wish us luck). Thanks to Fate & Reil for helping all guys out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I live in Lincoln , Nebraska and i just happened to turn on the tv one day and turned it to 'The Other Half' and these guys were on talking about their book. At first I was offended by the cover but once I realized that it¿s genuinely about treating women properly I was curious. So i ordered it and after reading a couple pages, it totally changed my thoughts about dating in general. I think every man should read this book. Although i am very shy, this book has started to bring me out of my shell. I thank these authors for writing this book. It gives me a lot more insight into women that I have hoped for for years.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is written as a manual giving men step by step instructions on how to approach and deal with women. Although the title and photo on the cover may turn you off, the book really encourages men to genuinely respect and appreciate women. Moreover, the principles mentioned in the book are easily applicable to all people. Accordingly, it serves as an excellent people management resource.Was this review helpful?
