    I've heard a lot about the "pickup artist" movement, especially on feminist sites, and couldn't contain my curiosity. Alas, these books are frequently checked out of the library, so I had to wait my turn. The basic theories of the book are soundly grounded in recognized psychological and evolutionary theory. Firstly, women are attracted to men who seem like they'd be good mates and providers.

Alas, these books are frequently checked out of the library, so I had to wait my turn. The basic theories of the book are soundly grounded in recognized psychological and evolutionary theory. Firstly, women are attracted to men who seem like they'd be good mates and providers. Just as men can't help being attracted to big boobs, even if they're fake, women can't help but be attracted to men who demonstrate a high social value. Much of this book, especially in the first part, is about how to improve your perceived social value by being extroverted, confident, and most importantly, not doing things to make yourself look weak, creepy, needy, or undesirable. For example, no lurking, skulking, fidgeting, or extravagant compliments to strangers. The basic structure of the seduction is as such: go to a "target-rich" environment and quickly (within 3 seconds) choose a woman you are attracted to. Using well-rehearsed stories (openers) you make friends with her group while ignoring or disregarding her. When she gives you indicators of interest (IOI), you then begin to talk to her. Over the course of about seven hours, you win her over by building comfort through shared experiences and small compliance tests, and then you arrange to have her go to the seduction location. This usually involves a second day and multiple scene changes. It's been a long time since I read THE RULES, which supposed to be the female counterpart to this movement. Both of them presume that all a woman has to do to get suitors is "be pretty" and "go to a bar." This hasn't been my experience, but then again, I wasted my college years studying and travelling overseas instead of partying every night. Presumably women who followed the traditional college trajectory had to beat men off with a stick. As such, there's not a whole lot a woman could take from this about how to attract men. Maybe women could use this if they wanted to attract women, and they could certainly benefit from practice in talking to strangers, but it's not going to get women closer to finding a boyfriend. In this world, women sit there and look pretty and men pick the one they want. One of the degrading/objectifying/sexist tropes of this book is that you rate women on a scale of 1-10, or rather, you rate them on a scale of 6-10, and anything below a 6 you don't bother with. The strategies are different for women who are a 9 or 10 vs. a woman who is "merely" a 7 or an 8. Prettier women apparently need to be aggressively dismissed or ignored, because they're so used to being adored that its lack will draw their attention quickly. The other trope that raises hackles is the neg. Personally, some of the techniques he uses to neg would make me respond with somewhere between a pout and tears. For example, asking a girl to do something, and when the obeyed action has an undesirable result, laughing at how dumb she was to fall for it.I must not be a 10, because a man treating me this way would not make me think "why is he unaffected by my beauty? He must be able to get any girl he wants." but "what an ass" and "If he's treating me this way when he wants to attract me, how much worse would he treat me after he got what he wanted?" Mystery makes assumptions about his readers. The obvious one is that his target reader is a hetero man, presumably young(ish?) who wants to sleep with beautiful women. I grant that for 98% of the readers, this is true. But he also assumes that the reader lives in a large city with an inexhaustible supply of "targets." If there are only a handful of eligible women in your town, you don't get a chance to practice. And you would need a lot of practice to make this work. Lots and lots of practice. For an introvert (like me) just going up to strangers and talking to them is extremely difficult and draining. Mystery recommends four hours a night, four nights a week to just practice "opening sets" (making the acquaintance of a group of strangers.) I think that unless you're an extrovert with a lot of time on his hands, you're going to have to work your way up to that. You probably also want a mentor to let you know when you're doing it wrong. I think sometimes people get so wrapped up in what they want and their own desires that they forget to watch and listen. It's not a terrible goal, however, and I say this as a feminist. Shocking as it may seem to the unlaid set, women do not say to themselves "Well, I spent over an hour agonizing over my outfit and putting on make-up and doing my hair and jewelry to go out to a bar. I just hope I don't meet an attractive man who seduces me. That would be awful!" Having more men out there who are capable of seducing women isn't a bad thing. This writer doesn't strike me as a guy who dislikes women. He even says that a one-night-stand is not the goal, but an intimate relationship with a beautiful woman. There are distasteful parts of it. The idea of dog-training another person into doing what you want them to do is creepy, as is the idea of a supposedly spontaneous date that the guy you just met has been on with countless other women. I guess it must work, but it seems so false. I recommend this as a beginning primer for men who are hopeless in meeting women. Absolutely read the glossary first. Mystery will SLAM you with buzzwords, TLAs (three letter acronyms) and other made-up terms that he presumes you already know.

He then walks you through the steps all the way to the close. Whether your pursuit of women is your destiny, or a part-time sport, this is a college course you must take. For this genre, I recommend the Mystery Method and two more. The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists. This is a fascinating journey by an author with marginal skills with the ladies (despite fame), who sets out on a life changing mission to master picking up women using the Mystery Method. The characters are philanderers, gigolos, wannabes, braggarts, and every dysfunctional category in between. Their quest is obvious, and thrust in your face; to sleep with as many beautiful women as possible. The author Strauss has written several best sellers, as well as for Rolling Stone, and literally has no competition when it comes to spinning tales of this type. The other thought provoking mindbender that catapults your hooking up skills is The_Professional_Bachelor_Dating_Guide_How_to_Exploit_Her_Inner_Psycho. This is a devious sexual persuasion guide for hooking up, written by a psych doc who cruised the nightclubs with great success for a decade. It also contains an asset protection guide to set up pre-marriage to shield you from divorce. Get these three, and get ready to laugh and learn. Really interesting books. The Game

    While reading this book I tried using the techniques Mystery prescribes to get my wife into bed, but it was too late. She already was in bed. "All right, wife," I said, "The Mystery Method: How to Get Beautiful Women into Bed is the last trashy book I'm reading." "But, balli," she said, "trashy books are the greatest." "Yeah, I know, and this one, despite its grossness and weirdness, contains good insights that aren't available from other, more respectable sources. Still, it's no Nicomachean Ethics While reading this book I tried using the techniques Mystery prescribes to get my wife into bed, but it was too late. She already was in bed.

"Yeah, I know, and this one, despite its grossness and weirdness, contains good insights that aren't available from other, more respectable sources. Still, it's no Nicomachean Ethics." In fact, the book is bizarrely free of ethics of any sort, save for in this one, lonely passage: "If you have sex with the woman only once and disappear, when she wants you to stay in her life in some capacity, a protection circuit in her head will punish her, sometimes severely, for compromising her chances of survival and replication. I've been told that it feels to a woman as if something very important has been stolen from her, and it's unethical to subject anyone to such painful and regretful feelings." Remember, guys, fuck that woman many, many, many, many times.

    Every single woman should read this. Know your enemy. Also, avoid cornballs doing any of the following for attention: getting chummy with your boyfriend, doing card tricks, wearing a giant fuzzy hat or other such ridiculousness, or anyone who has given themselves a nickname.

    I've just re-read this book and its STILL the best book on picking up women I have ever read. Going over the material again, it has reminded me of a couple key concepts and reminded me of other things I can use, now that I have mastered some of the others. Its a great follow-up to the book, How to be Successful with Women. How to be successful with women really does a great job about laying out the fundamentals of dating. The Mystery Method provides advanced tips and guidance. What makes the boo I've just re-read this book and its STILL the best book on picking up women I have ever read.

Even men that have been single for a long time will learn that Mystery can take their game to another level. I would HIGHLY recommend this to each and every single man out there that wants to date / marry a dime. I now teach a dating bootcamp and a majority of the key concepts come from this book. The rest of the material is from the school of hard knocks.

    Interesting book. If you like psychology, you'll probably be into it. Lots of theories on social development and why we act the way we do. That part was interesting to me. Last part is a bunch of "pick up lines" and suggested orders to use them, which I didn't find as interesting. It was more for somebody who really buys into this "method" to study and, hopefully, improve on. Will it work? Probably. But if you approach enough women, which is part of the process, anything will work. There is part Interesting book. If you like psychology, you'll probably be into it.

It was more for somebody who really buys into this "method" to study and, hopefully, improve on. Will it work? Probably. But if you approach enough women, which is part of the process, anything will work. There is part of this which is a numbers game. The author suggests you approach 16 women (or groups of women) per night and do it four nights per week. For this stuff, it's a 3-star book. Interesting, but take it with a grain of salt. This isn't a magic formula to get laid. As a marketing guy, I read this more to see how it was put together than anything else. The "pickup" market is HUGE and Mystery is the King. Show on VH1, high end seminars, etc... For the guys interested in this subject... If he is doing this kind of manipulation to women, don't you think he'd do it to you as well? Sure he is. From a marketing perspective, it's pretty good. Lots of "code words" for things to give this niche a common voice/language and make this stuff seem like more than it is. Lots of "techniques" that aren't really anything at all. More or less, this is a re-tooled self-development book. It's no different than a love and relationship seminar you'd see the back of Cosmo or Self...except that it's for men rather than women. He's selling the same thing, he's just doing it in your language. Men don't pay for "self help" but they do pay for tricks to help them meet more women and have more sex. Overall, I think guys interested in meeting more women will find it helpful. Not so sure about how it would work on a "dating" or relationship level. Eventually, you're going to run out of pickup lines and will have to stand on your own. And there are no lines that will make you a more interesting person. The stuff in here is just a foot in the door...maybe. Take what works for you and leave the rest.

    I borrowed this one from the library with the same skepticism as when I borrowed He's Just Not That Into You. Mystery is right on the money with his social dynamic theories. It killed me to sit there and agree with him, especially since I *am* female! I think this is the first dating book that I've ever read that breaks out "the game" on a psychological basis, and more than standard advice like don't call the day after getting a number.

    I don't much like 'Mystery' as far as his personality goes. His is a narrow and two-dimensional mindset; tuned into in this one particular pseudo-field but not well-rounded in any other way. Also: I definitely don't like all the imbeciles and losers who comprise his retinue. All these elaborate sagas about living together in mansions. Please, grow up. Additionally I feel there's some gaping holes in the method he's so proud of.

Also: I definitely don't like all the imbeciles and losers who comprise his retinue. All these elaborate sagas about living together in mansions. Please, grow up. Additionally I feel there's some gaping holes in the method he's so proud of. Careful reading reveals far too many 'exceptions'--'differences' between the type of guy he is vs the type of guy the rest of men are--incongruities which make it work for him, rather than work en-masse. You could almost boil down his whole system into one concept: "When you enter a room, be 'Mr. Wonderful'. Be the 'life of the party'. Don't be afraid to 'make a fool of yourself'. Be a man's man". Uhh, these concepts go back to 1950s cocktail parties. Farther back than Ross Jeffries, even. There's good reasons why its impractical and even foolhardy to try to push the envelope in the way that he and his cheesy friends have done. Its not just that riding the media circus as much as he's doing (to rake in money of course) means its much easier for women to be alerted in advance to all the Jedi-mind-tricks he urges guys to employ. [He makes big bucks, but kills the element of surprise a lot of his tricks depend on]. Its just that his method needs to be a lot smoother; a lot more scientific; more grounded in an academic footing. It needs to be more *subtle*. Not so ham-handed, so clumsy. Success should NOT depend so heavily on a 'numbers game'. You shouldn't have to meet mass quantities of women to get 'a percentage of them' into bed. MM concepts are also not that innovative, in and of themselves. Its just a mixture of pop psychology, magazine-tips; and fringe culture insights. Any intelligent, well-read, conversational, socially-attuned guy was aware of most of what he outlined long before his book came on the scene. Perhaps we never formulated these principles into diagrams and step-by-step procedures; but yeah I think most of us knew about simple techniques like 'ask open-ended questions'. Du'oh. For me, my biggest complaint about MM is that it takes no account of men's individual personalities. All his individual students become just ONE (one fairly revolting) personality like a Herb Tarleck or something. But individuality is simply buried in the section about "be the best person you can be, re-invent yourself along these lines, present yourself to best-effect, don't retain old, bad habits". Gee, really? That simple...just join the Borg. No thanks. And it goes without saying that MM entirely glosses over the concept of 'individual female personalities'. He grossly underestimates their instincts; their abilities, and their intuition. Rampantly. Observe: the Mystery Method works best on a certain type of unsavvy, infrequent reader, beach-girl, model-type girl, doesn't it? That's the only kind he ever talks about. Ditzy blondes and party-chicks. As if that's the only kind of desirable woman out there; as if '8s, 9s, & 10s' are the only worthwhile 'targets'. And what happens when a girl is bright enough to figure out you're scamming her? Well nothing, if you're Mystery (or anyone like him). You bluff and charm your way through it. But the far better method is to always just 'be yourself'. [This enduring concept--one which not a lot of money can be made from--unsurprisingly, gets minimal accord in his system.] Now. All that being said, I still find the Mystery Method to be the best of all the dating systems out there. Its really the only one with workable elements that can be extracted for one's own, personal style. Its the most coherent and accessible. He is genuinely (as he trumpets) miles ahead of any of his copycats. His are the only two books for this genre, which I ever found remotely readable. I honestly think he did something very clever and ingenious--pulling a lot of disparate, unconnected theories together (bits and pieces that were lying around from 'failed systems') and packaged them together into something new and useful. His skill lies entirely in that re-organizing and re-structuring; in making a clean, clear, fresh start for this field of male self-improvement. He's an Elvis. A re-compiler, a re-interpreter of dating lore. I definitely give him credit, for being the best presenter of the information and at the same time, revolutionizing a stagnant area of male development. Creepy Neil Strauss was right about one thing: lots of guys need some help in social skills. Simply as an introduction to socialization for the completely backward, hamstrung chump/fumbler; MM is valuable in that it can give beginners much-needed confidence. Still, what 'Mystery' should do is grow up and stop obsessing over the 'fantasy threesome' that he can't seem to shed.

    I heard about this book and was very curious about what it's like being a PUA. While reading this I feel that this is really learning to demonstrate one's own high value. I like how Mystery takes one through different scenarios. This is definitely a book that should be re-read to be able to know the steps and protocols and not to mention being able to practice the methods. I do feel that this book goes beyond just the teachings of being a PUA, but really learn about yourself, and how people beha I heard about this book and was very curious about what it's like being a PUA.

The Game is extremely well-written and has insights into people and interactions that extend beyond simple interest in picking up women. Mystery Method begins with what I'll generously call wildly speculative claims about evolution and gender traits. I almost didn't make it through the first couple of chapters. In the spectrum between cynics who presented with integrations of data into ideas always see the leaps and criticize them to model-builders who make those leaps, Mystery is so far out at the latter as to have a difficult time establishing any credibility. The book improves considerably when he talks about picking up women. His penchant for model-building really helps him to organize a hard-won, trial-and-error expertise into something that can be taught and analyzed. I found myself respecting most of this part. Still, in the end, since I'm more interested in learning about the aspects of human interaction that emerge in books like this than in building solid game in picking up women, the book fell a little flat. It might be good if you want to be better at approaching women, I'd suggest reading it. If you're interested in more general learning this touches on, it is fairly weak.

    When I first heard about this book I thought it was an ironic name for some hip novel, not a sincere (if you can even say that) how-to book. Then when reading other people's reviews, and seemingly otherwise intelligent women said the guy had his points, curiosity got the better of me. I wasn't really sure how rate this because it is offensive and disturbing for obvious reasons. But at the same time, so fascinating I actually stayed up late into the night reading it.

    It was highly educational. Mystery is just pointing out what is quite apparent (if you have any basic social skills or are a woman) in terms of male-female social interactions, but his technique is both highly methodical and sophisticated. If you are a dude, it's probably in your interest to read this book.

    This is actually still a relevant book This book may be outdated and fact is it contains very cheesy lines, but it provides practical examples on how to interact with women (and men). It has helped me a lot, especially on how to “open sets”. Say what you want about the pick up community but this kind of advise helps for every kind of social interaction.

    I hate that this exists. Powerful in an evil way. Like Voldemort. Read if you want to understand some human behaviour at its worst/know your enemy.

    Want one-night stands? This might be the book for you. Want love? Then this is not the book for you.

    After learning about "negging" by watching the TV show Silicon Valley, my boyfriend let me know that there is a whole group of pick-up artists who have a whole system for bedding pretty much any woman and that it includes "negs." Once he explained it to me a bit, I started to see it everywhere! And I decided to read a book that would explain this method so that I would not be blind to it.

Once he explained it to me a bit, I started to see it everywhere! And I decided to read a book that would explain this method so that I would not be blind to it. Honestly, I expected this book to be a lot more offensive than it was. I never saw Mystery's show and the only experience I have with him and his method is this very book. So any statements I make about his methods are based entirely off this book and nothing else. For the most part, I think his methods are fine. I have no doubt they're effective and I think that men being a bit more wise to what women are looking for (namely, high social value) is helpful to both men and women. I would advise my male friends who struggle to pick up women to read the book. On its own, I don't think the method needs to be used unethically. However, it COULD be used unethically. In my opinion, if you are a man reading this book, you can then choose to be ethical or to be unethical. The book won't make that decision for you. You could bed a lot of women, you could break hearts. Or you could find true love. There are a couple things that don't make much sense to me. First, how do you determine who is a 9 or 10 on the attractiveness scale and who is a 6, 7, or 8? Like, for instance, I feel like I'm a 9 or 10! But because I'm not basic, I don't have lots of make-up, fake nails, I'm not tall, and I'm just clearly not a person who works to make sure you think I'm a 10. But there are a lot of people who find that more attractive. So, should you neg me? Maybe, if I'm ignoring you. But otherwise, no. I think that, considering the subjectiveness of a 1-10 atractiveness scale, it makes more sense to only neg women who ignore you or in some other way projects that they think their social value is higher than yours is. Lots of the negs I find pretty condescending and although I might think you had higher social value if you used them, for me personally, that is not likely to be to your benefit. Some of them are so stupid that I'll think you're stupid if you use them, and then I won't have interest in you because I only like intelligent men. But that brings me to the other flaw of this method, in my opinion: it would work great on basic women by basic men, but if you want a woman who is intelligent, cultured, or unconventional, you'd need to really adjust this method. Mystery is probably someone who sucks and goes for sucky women, which is fine. If this book had been written by someone more interesting, the examples of gambits you can use to demonstrate your own higher social value might be less basic. On the other hand, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe all this shit would work on the truly cool and interesting women as well. I don't know and I can't test it because I'm not a man. However, in the event that I decided to try to date women instead of men, I do think that a lot of this would be effective for me.

    Simply put, this book works! I remember trying out some of the tips in this book on women that I would normally never talk to. They were really hot women, just not my typical cup of tea, so I had no reservations on using it on them. If I failed, I didn't care, but if I succeeded, I became favorable to this hot woman, who I sort of didn't really care to entertain much. As a loner, I just wanted to test the waters and see if it actually worked, and it does! Now, I will assure you, that no women we Simply put, this book works!

Now, I will assure you, that no women were hurt in the process, because I don't want people to read this and think I'm a jerk. But in the book, it instructs you to go out and try this stuff! What's knowledge without application? So I'd recommend this book to guys who are anxious about getting out there and getting that date! I wore women's perfume, and super strange yet, artistic shirts that kind of served as my version of Mystery's big and obnoxious cowboy hat. It definitely made me noticeable, when I'd normally blend in. This book is fun, so go read it! Thanks Neil!

    I think this book is worth reading because it was groundbreaking for its time, and parts of it (ie. the psychological principles, the general principles of social dynamics) are quite solid. I think the main thing I got out of this book was the idea of status (ie. "value"), which can come from either reproductive value or survival value (and women mostly look for survival value in men).

I think the main thing I got out of this book was the idea of status (ie. "value"), which can come from either reproductive value or survival value (and women mostly look for survival value in men). What I don`t like about the book, or I should say about the method, is that it`s so damn clinical and detail-oriented that it makes men stuck in their heads worrying about perfection of execution, when that is SOOOOO not important. The book breaks down the process of attraction and seduction into so many little steps that men can go crazy trying to execute them all, and find themselves failing even when they remember all the steps because they`re being such inauthentic pickup geeks. I also really disagree with the whole frame of the girl being higher value than you and you having to demonstrate higher value and lower the girl`s value. Negging is a part of flirting, but the way it`s presenting in this book, it sounds like you are actually trying to lower the girl`s self esteem so that you can be artificially higher value than her. Well, you don`t have to be, because she is NOT higher value than you to begin with, and if you know that and that`s your frame, then she will not need to be negged and you will not need to demonstrate anything, because your frame is obvious through your demeanor. I`ve been through the whole pickup life cycle, and I know that this kind of nerd game just doesn`t work as well as understanding female psychology, having control of your emotions, logistics and basics like that - and just having fun chatting up chicks. Just don`t be a pussy, and have fun chatting up chicks. That will get you laid far more than memorizing canned routines to pretend you have a personality. With all that said, Mystery was one of the big innovators and he deserves respect for that. I suspect his more recent material is quite different from his original method, but I haven`t read anything recent of his.

    This is an honest and honestly presented account of a dishonest game. It eschews the plotting of Neil Strauss's The Game and presents Erik Von Markovik's ingenious system for picking-up women. The man who calls himself Mystery really is, as Strauss described him two years before this book was published, "a big, blubbering genius."

It eschews the plotting of Neil Strauss's The Game and presents Erik Von Markovik's ingenious system for picking-up women. The man who calls himself Mystery really is, as Strauss described him two years before this book was published, "a big, blubbering genius." His book comes from a more vulnerable place than Strauss's book; Von Markovik prizes sociability above all things - in the tradition of Bill Clinton, he is energized, not fatigued, by interactions with others - and imparts worthwhile advice like: If she's boring and bored, it's your fault. (p. 29) and Just repeat the words "no problem" in your head until you really believe it. No matter what happens, it's no big deal. (p. 38) and There are a lot of good people to meet in this word. (p. 122) and Don't seek attention, approval, or understanding from others. (Be unaffected.) (p. 181) More interesting still are the ideas Von Markovik imparts about "Peacock Theory" and "Multiple Venue Loops". Much of it is needlessly jargonistic, but at their cores, both ideas are very good ones: If a woman is looking at you in a social setting for most any reason at all, you are probably succeeding; and each place a woman visits with a man disproportionately increases her perception of him as a safe companion. There is too much choreography and instruction, sure, and the book will be best appreciated by 25-year-old virgins, but it is an enjoyable read just the same.

    This was one of the first books I read about "the art of pick-up." At the time, it was one of the only options you had for learning how to pick-up women. Nowadays, there's so many other better options. Not to say that you can't learn stuff from this book. Even though a lot of information is "antiquated," it's still a very good book for someone who's just starting to really want to break into the art of meeting and successfully courting girls (yes, there is an actual process you can do). Learning This was one of the first books I read about "the art of pick-up." At the time, it was one of the only options you had for learning how to pick-up women. Nowadays, there's so many other better options. Not to say that you can't learn stuff from this book. Even though a lot of information is "antiquated," it's still a very good book for someone who's just starting to really want to break into the art of meeting and successfully courting girls (yes, there is an actual process you can do). Learning "game" was something I was looking to do as this was a point in my life where I wanted to improve on my social life with women and wanted more practical experience with being around girls. You may not have success at first, but if you stick through the program, you will get really good with meeting women that you want to meet and then choosing what you want to do at that point in time. It's a very awesome and empowering feeling. Like I said, there are better "guides" out there now (I highly recommend Magic Bullets) that goes into much more advanced stuff. This book also tends to over-generalize somewhat, although some things do apply to SOME women as I have found out from experience. If you're going to make this technique work for you, be prepared to push through mental limits you never thought possible. It's definitely not for everyone, and I still remember my struggles early on up to the point where I wondered if I'd ever "get it, but stick with it. Take your time to learn how to do it correctly, and you will be handsomely rewarded.
