Anything gets better when structure is understood. I mean, if you’re like most of the people we meet in everyday life, at some time we wanted to try a new way of doing things, with sports, or a new hobby, or driving a car in a different way, and there seemed to be a lot of artistry in that. And you may be able to find a person who let’s say takes great pictures and you go, how do you do that, and they say well, it’s about the light, and the ‘composition’ and also be mindful of objects in motion, and quite a few other bits of significance that randomly appear here and there; while you may continue to wonder what ‘composition’ is. Is this a book just for the PU artist? I don’t think so, it is material for any of the many guys who ever wondered what goes on between guys and girls. The ‘emotional progression model’ shows precisely that, what happens when two people with romance potential talk, and it’s a great thing to have and understand. So often guys find themselves in interactions that flow ever so easily, or they really don’t, and the question of what makes one kind versus the other is the question, is it not? The model takes the complexity of an emotional interaction and puts it into a structure that the logical, milestone oriented mind of a guy likes and understands. The words are wise and respectful towards men and women. I wouldn’t like it any other way you know, because ideas biased towards one gender at the expense of the other not only do not work, but more importantly may not agree with one’s personal values and beliefs. There’s all kinds of information teaching a man that he can be anyone he wants to be, but is that possible or even worth trying? This book shows the path to naturally move from one’s personal state of being to a much more interesting and vivid way of being, a quick change because the steps are clear. As for personal experience, I finished the read a few weeks ago and here’s what I already notice – a shift from states of artistic wonder to becoming process-aware, a newly found comfort in social settings. Spontaneous reactions, smiles and phone numbers are being offered, dates easier to make happen. I find myself in better moods throughout the day, and then it’s simply natural to say things that capture people’s attention in ways that did not manifest before. And yes, it is possible to mess things up real nicely, as inherent in the building of any skill. The reader need not worry though, as the chapters in the book follow the steps in the model and it’s easy to go back and review specific sections by sort of issue. Another thing that many readers will appreciate in this material is the reality of it. This isn’t information about how things could be in a fantastic world in someone’s mind, nor is it good sounding verbosity that fails when put to the test. You need not be an expert in linguistics to make sense of what is explained. This is real, excellent, authentic know-how for anyone to use. The information is right on. After all, any process gets easier when its true structure is revealed!

Forging a successful life is done one action at a time. Purchasing Magic Bullets is one action that I recommend every man to take. Whether you have only just discovered dating science or you consider yourself a "ladies man," Magic Bullets is an investment. Before reading this book and applying its principles I was very dissatisfied with my life. I was about to enter the rest of my life and knew that one day if I didn't make a change, there would come a day, where I would have to settle. This disgusting thought made me take action and since then i have never looked back. The major takeaway from the book is the structure. No longer does a man have to be lost when with a woman. There is no “What do I do next?” Instead, its: “Cool, I have run some attraction, this girl definitely likes me, now let’s run some qualification and see what this girl is really about.” You are always in control. The second takeaway from the book is the chapter on storytelling. It might just be one chapter, but it is worth its weight in gold. Becoming a conversationalist and knowing how to properly tell a story will not only improve your life with women. It’ll improve all aspects of your life Ex. Interactions with friends, co-workers, family, etc. After applying these principles i've completely changed. I'm more positive, more successful and I DO NOT worry about my dating life or having to settle. Becoming the person you wish to be takes time and energy. But, enjoy the process and work towards this new life. Don't BUY this book, INVEST in this book. This is not a purchase, this is a change in your life.

Magic Bullets is the blueprint of social dynamics for teaching men to attract women. As a former AFC (average frustrated chump) that had zero ability with women, Magic Bullets gave me insight and perspective on what makes men truly attractive to women. MB also opened my eyes to concepts like kinoing, body language, and the subtleties of social dynamics and social situations. I chose the word "blueprint" because Magic Bullets is to attracting women like a blueprint is to building a house. Someone who's never built a house before can't just look at a blueprint and immediately go build a perfect 4 bedroom townhouse. But rather the blueprint shows the builder what steps he must follow and gives him a direction to follow. It's still up to the builder to go out and hone his skills if he wants to create something. Magic bullets will show you the steps to social interaction and attraction- from the opening line, to getting her interested, to building rapport and qualifying, to seducing- but you need to take action. It took me a while to fully understand all the concepts from the book, but once I did my ability to interact with women skyrocketed. I'm no longer the guy standing on the wall criddling with a drink clutched to my chest at parties- I'm the guy making friends and having a good time. If you want to be that kind of guy then Magic Bullets is the starting point. It will change the way you see social interaction between men and women and if you go out and take action it will change your life. It may sound over the top, but I genuinely mean that. I only wish I'd stumbled across it in high school...

This book is ironically titled. Right off the bat, it tells you "there are no magic bullets". Becoming good with women is something you have to learn, like karate. For some people that will be disappointing. The bright side is there is a ton of examples in this book of what guys have actually said to girls that has worked for them, and they give you some "quick advice" if you bought it 3 hours before you hit the club. For me, I don't trust quick schemes. If you're a guy who wants to know "what clothes do I wear to make a girl want to sleep with me without saying anything", go play World of Warcraft. The book breaks down a typical (and not-so-typical) interaction with a girl, and each chapter tackles a different angle. How to start a conversation without her putting her guard up. How to impress her without looking like a try-hard. Why some girls think you're only trying to hook up, and why other girls want to introduce you to their friends. And then it tells you it's not all about what to say. There's explanations about body language, different settings, different group sizes, what your clothes say about you, what to do on a date, and how to skip the dating part (if you're that kind of guy). The most useful part was that there were so many examples that you realize what should be common sense: being an attractive and interesting guy can mean a lot of different things. Some guys will want to try every routine or line they read. I found there were enough examples that I could say "this is my style", and come up with my own material so I didn't feel like a copycat. If you know what style feels right for you, you'll move passed memorizing lines, and you'll just get into a certain headspace where you know how to flirt with women, build attraction, and navigate the obstacles that might make her shut that attraction down. I used to "get lucky" once in a while. This book showed me that I actually make my own luck, and how to do that consistently.

I was a mostly silent member of the Attraction Forums, having stumbled upon it when I was going through a very traumatic relationship experience. Just reading the free articles written by members who've gone through the pitfalls of relationships really showed me how much I didn't know about relationships and the countless mistakes I was making, without knowing it. I finally made the decision to purchase the book, not to become a PUA, but to improve how I interact and build relationships with people. The step by step guide on how to build a relationship with a total stranger, learning that you are just as important as the person you're building a relationship with and the keys behind attraction, is just the surface. No regrets getting this book. I just wish I knew all this sooner!

Ever thought to yourself "What do I have to do to get her to want me?" Well then, Magic Bullets read this. There's a reason the world's best pick-up artists started with this book. It's not a one and off book that you will be able to follow some simple routine, but you will learn an entire toolbox that will change you life. If anyone asks me about Love Systems I tell them: Dating without Magic Bullets is like playing the dating game on hard. And that is the absolute truth, Magic Bullets teaches you so much, don't expect it to be a weekend read. BUT if you're in a hurry to use the material, there is a routine that you can use TONIGHT and see results. Chapters include: Female Psychology, Non-Verbal Communication, as well as the patented Triad Model. There is nowhere near enough space to fully review this book. Simply put, if you want to succeed with beautiful women that only rockstars can date, then this book is what you need. It does not have to do with having money, it has nothing to do with having the looks of a male mode, it has only to do with you getting out of your own way and making it happen! Since reading Magic Bullets, meeting women has become easy and fun.

As the author of the book tells you within the first sentence of the introduction, the title of the book "Magic Bullets" is an ironic title meant to poke fun at all the claims that dating and seduction books will provide you with the "magic bullet" that will instantaneously bring you success with women and dating. This book, however, is the first step into initiating you into a program of self-improvement, understanding, and skill building that allows you to be more confident in knowing what women really desire in a potential romantic and sexual partner, as well as the "natural" progression they expect seduction and romance to happen in. As men are often programmed to think in a step-by-step, almost engineering type mentality, Nick Savoy explicates a system that reverse engineers the progression that men who are naturally good with women take and then gives these guidelines to you, who must learn to re-program himself into what a woman really expects. But that is only the first step. I've found it brings some clarity and many "ah-ha!" moments, but it is still all based upon your commitment to understanding and learning. I recommend this book as a necessary introduction to future study.

If you are looking for success with women, whether it be one night stands with 10's or that perfect girl to marry, then Magic Bullets is the book for you. It will teach you how to SARGE and open those HB's, (read the book for meaning ?) and quickly have the girl hanging off you, as you will become the life of the party and steer each and every conversation you have with a woman in the direction you want it to, to succeed. Whether you are someone who has had no luck with women your whole life, or that guy who has some natural charm but wants his game to be rock solid, this book is for you. It will take you to whatever level you push yourself to with women. I know it definitely has improved significantly for me, in just over a month of reading and pushing myself out of my comfort zone I am having great success and thriving on every minute of it.

This book is genius. It clearly explains exactly how attraction works for women. Of course, no woman is the same; they are unique people with different life experiences. However, attraction always works the same way and Magic Bullets describes the seven "attraction switches" in detail. It describes the underlying psychological causes that cause these switches to work. They don't just stop there - they show you the logical progression of what to do when - from the initial approach, if necessary, until she is in your bed, and beyond. Good buy!

Before I bought and read this book I had little to none... well 0 success with women. My last relationship (prior to reading this book) lasted 4 months and I always found myself questioning why I couldn't push further and get things to be really great with this girl (cos I really liked her). I learned the answers to my questions within the first few chapters. Then I put it's (I'm not gonna say tips or even rules) advice into action and the changes I have seen in myself, my social circle and the women in my life are phenominal. That's how this book felt to me, like that little push, like it's the mentor I should of had all along. The book contains all of the information that IS VITAL to EVERY MAN but we go without it and I can't see a reason why. Everything is broken down perfectly from how to approach and get attraction (with some of the content results are immediate), how to overcome the fear of approaching and even some hands on male grooming and relationship advice. My personal favourite sections are on female psychology and and of Savoy's "Emotional Progression" and "Physical Escalation" models without which I wouldn't have achieved the success i have :D. There are some very valuable ideas within this book. It's the next best thing if you can't get to a bootcamp. Further reading that ties in very well which also comes from LoveSystems on the same subject include Routines Manual and Routines Manual 2 which are packed full of top notch openers, transitions and EVERY practical tool you could ever need to get more women in your life. Happy Hunting ;)

My greatest romantic success until late high school was dancing about a meter away from a cute girl in middle school. After that I had a series of relationships that ended in second year university, when I broke up with a girl I'd spent two years of my life with, the last two months of which were spent being woken up in the middle of the night for her to scream at me, cry or otherwise make me incredibly unhappy. You're thinking boohoo, life is rough, etc. etc. That's my point. Dealing with that stuff is important, and instead of just going out and trying the same things (and getting the same types of girls), I wanted to find someone who made me happy. That decision is the first step, and has nothing to do with Magic Bullets. The second step is a hell of a lot harder. When all you have to go on is what Hallmark, Hollywood and your mom told you about meeting girls, it's really. Freaking. Hard to improve your life. I wasn't the cool kid in school, I wasn't super fashionable or attractive, and I didn't have lots of money. So I had to learn the hard way. I read Magic Bullets about a year after I started really focussing on my social skills. I kind of wish I'd read it sooner as I wasted a lot of time trying to understand other systems and advice. I can say that right now I've gotten way beyond where I thought I could go with my social skills, and so much of that is from the lessons in Magic Bullets. They're not over-night things, but you're not looking for a miracle cure. You just need the right path, preferably the shortest path as well, but at least one that will get you where you want to go. This is it. Where am I now? In China having adventures. My last week in my hometown was spent with two completely different but equally wonderful girls who I'd met a week earlier. The months before that I spent working on my business (and with a couple other girls), because I had solved the whole social skills problem and didn't need to focus on it anymore. Before that, I was in Europe trying not to be a playboy and failing miserably. I don't want to tell you about my girls, but I realize that this is so outside of the reality of some people that it just needs to be said. You can get significantly better with women, period. Where was I when I read Magic Bullets a year ago? Right where you are. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their relationships, meet the love of their life, or just be a more well-rounded person.
