Funny, witty little humor book!
‘Scary Pranks: Give Spook to Hook’ threw me at first. I had read several other books by this author, Stephen Williams, and appreciate his low key approach to self-help books. This book looked really, um, immature, for something from this author. It seemed so over the top that I couldn’t believe someone would consider it a self-help book. Then, I saw on the tagline that it was part of the ‘Entertainment’ series, and it clicked.
This is one funny book! It is marketed as a tool to help guys get lucky with girls using scary pranks to get them all flustered and helpless, so the guys can step in and play the hero to get some ‘thanks’. Well, if that were really true, the guys buying this book would probably be disappointed in the results! But, taken as Williams intended this book to be, it is a great tool to demonstrate how humor can be the sexiest tool guys can use to get girls interested.
Now, I for one would find the whole ‘my car won’t start, so we are stuck here til morning’ trick tired and cheesy, but any guy that had the guts to try it would have to have a wicked sense of humor, so I would have definitely been interested in getting to know him better. (I am married now, so these don’t really apply to me, although my husband has kept me laughing for over 15 years, and he gets lucky all the time because of it!). The book offers several outrageous scary pranks that someone could pull to get their girl into bed, and if they are read with your tongue planted firmly in your cheek they will entertain you and make you giggle, because you just know some silly guys have actually tried all of these just to bed their dates!
I loved the witty style of the book, approaching the subject as though it is strictly a sexual how to, when in fact it is a lighthearted, humorous tome for those looking to get a laugh. But seriously, guys that read this are probably guys with a wicked sense of humor, and those are often the best boyfriends/husbands, so girls, pay attention! If your guy buys this book, he’s probably a keeper. However, if he sincerely believes he’s going to get into your panties by trying these tricks, he might just be a seriously immature fella who needs to be scared himself!
Okay, Williams, turnabout is fair play. Where is the girl’s guide to scaring the poop out of her man to get him to do something she wants, like take out the garbage or wash the dishes? Now, that would be one book that I would definitely have to buy, ha ha!

Who doesn't really like scaring someone out of their wits every now and then? It can be fun when it's done properly but it can also be complicated at times. You want to make sure that you're doing it right and that means you need a good prank that's well thought out before you even get started. With "Scary Pranks" you'll have all the pranks you need to terrify your friends and family whenever the mood strikes you.
This book is all about using scare tactics to get someone exactly where you want them, in your bed. That's right you're going to be able to truly scare some of the people in your life but you'll also be able to lure that special someone right to you with some really sexy scare techniques.
Stephen Williams has a very good style of writing. He's able to convey a lot of information to the reader without making it sound like he knows more than you. He's also able to teach you new things without making it seem boring or like you're reading a textbook. After all, who wants to learn new things by reading textbooks? We've all gotten plenty of that going through school.
If you like scaring people or if you're looking to get someone running to you for comfort and maybe a little more then you should read this book. You'll be able to learn some new techniques and you'll be able to get what you want out of any night and anyone that you share it with.
I really liked this book because it seemed like it had a lot of great tips and tricks. You can really just pick it up and go with it because you won't have to think out the prank for yourself and everything you need to carry it out is spelled out for you. Just read the prank and put it into motion. It's really as simple as that.
This book achieved its goal well because it was very good at helping you to learn about ways to scare people. It was also good at explaining how these tricks could actually lure someone into your bed as well. So it does all the work for you and you just need to read and put things into play. Have some fun with this book and have some fun with the people that are closest to you.
I would think this book would be fun for some of the people that I know. I definitely have some mischievous friends that would love having new ways to scare people or even just new ways to have some fun when they get bored. I would recommend this to all of them.

Have you run out of pranks to play on your friends or looking to get lucky for the night.
Although the book has been titled to get your mischievous side it has the double aim of getting the girl too. The book has been written for guys and the pranks are various means of getting the girl for the night.
Although some of the pranks are a bit far fetched and hard to believe in its simplicity but if the girl is out for a bit of fun, hey, why not. Just play along and enjoy the moment and the fun. But I am thinking you can use these pranks only once and then for the next one you will have to start flipping Williams’s Scary Pranks again. The cover of the book could have been a little more artistically done and it would have more appeal on the creative side.
The book is a fun read if you are looking for some lighted amusement to while away. Some of it might bring back memories of when guys tried their luck on you and how ridiculous it was but we girls being the mature and smart ones played along.

Stephen Williams has an incredible knack for getting his readers' collective attention. His writing style is reminiscent of Ernest Hemingway---short, active sentences that mince no words. Williams wastes little time in setting the tone of his writing by providing vivid descriptions of his character(s); the background and subsequent foreshadowing; any and all conflict that arises; and brings all situations and plot twists together to a satisfying conclusion that leaves this reader satiated.
In "Scary Pranks: Give Spook to Hook," Williams proffers the reader a new twist to the timeless art of male-to-female seduction, and just in time for the Halloween week to boot. He provides the reader numerous romantic hypotheticals in the form of practical jokes that fall under the aegis of the woman's best interests, which in turn provides fodder for numerous potential sexy outcomes, ostensibly in the guy's favor.
This is precisely where things get tricky.
In a perfect world, all people would find true love and happiness, war would cease, the Cubs would win a World Series, no one would be poor and/or starving, and televangelists would fly coach. "Pranks" provides scenarios in which Romeo has numerous decent options for putting empathy into practice and (hopefully) creating a subsequent atmosphere for intimacy with a woman on all levels. This is certainly what the author is telling the reader throughout the book. But what started me thinking was this: given the situations presented throughout the tome, is there a potential for any of these approaches to backfire?
As wonderful as it may seem, not everything works out according to plan, even with one's best efforts. I would have found stronger satisfaction had the author expanded more upon alternative endings just in case things went awry during the course of seduction. There is always a chance, no matter how improbable it may seem, that the aforementioned prank can backfire: it always pays to know and gauge one's audience in order to pull it off with aplomb. Being able to do this would make the emotional and sexual intimacy that much better.
Williams provides the reader numerous strategies for seduction, and in so doing, demonstrates that, while the destination is certainly important, the journey itself is just as valuable. Human beings are complex creatures; in the ever-changing world of human relationships, we have the maddening propensity to send our paramours mixed messages in addition to compartmentalizing our daily routines, multitasking to the point of overload, and, in general, making our lives ever more difficult and complex. Simply being cognizant of these pitfalls allows one to practice prioritizing our relationships---which, when combined with discipline, fortitude, planning and foresight, can add deeper, more developed levels of intimacy.
Still, "Pranks" is a useful source of ideas, and even if you do not follow through with any of them, just being aware and informed of the content can be educating and liberating. As someone who is not inclined towards Howie Mandel-esque humor, I still found Williams's modus operandi informative, engaging, and highly entertaining. This particular niche title will certainly find acceptance and approval among certain individuals.
