A great book that will show you a picture of the community of pickup artists.

The author did a great job telling its read how and why he became a pick up artist(PUA) and in the end indirectly tells us why shouldn't necessarily strive to become one.

Perfect for guys who wants to get their dream girl. ( )

This book is bound like the bible, but what's inside isn't biblical. I found the binding pretentious and was embarrassed to carry it around while reading it. Not because I would be embarrassed to carry a Bible around, but because if you get close the gold stripper silhouettes give it away.

But I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, right? I won't here.

This isn't a book about how to pick up women, though there are a few tips for that you pick up along the way. It is Neil Strausses 2 year journey into the internet and real world community of pick up artists.

The books starts out with the master pickup artist Mystery in the troughs of a nervous breakdown and on his way to a mental hospital. Then it goes back to show how he ended up there, catching up about half way through the book.

He starts as both a writer looking for a story and a geek wanting to understand women. He ends up getting lots of both. It is extermely well written with each chapter making you want more.

The story shows the good and the bad of this group of men. How "the game" takes over their lives and in some cases destroys them, in others liberates them.

People's lives are changed. The characters are interesting and well drawn.

The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the ending is bitter sweet and a little dark. Thinks work out well for the author, but not for everyone else.

I'd still buy it and will probably read it again. ( )

4 stars for it being so well written.. but... WTF? I spent most of the book shaking my head. These men are freakin serious about picking up women. On the one hand, it's good that they're improving themselves.. nothing like a little de-geeking to help a guy become more social, but... damn! ( )

This book is the most unbelievable book I've ever read. I had no idea the seedy underground world of 'pick-up artists' was as big and far reaching as described in this book. The horrible nature of those groups of men make me want to give up on humanity. Seriously. I can get behind teaching men self-confidence in order to approach women and have more success BUT, using that knowledge to to manipulate vast numbers of women is wrong.

It's almost like all the worst bits of consumerist culture applied to women. Where women are dehumanised and judged instantly by a number ranking between 1-10. Women deemed fat or ugly are only worthy of attention when being used to get to the true target. These 'pick-up artists' use multiple scripted 'routines' to get women to give out their number, kiss them and ultimately have sex. Perhaps unsurprisingly, by the end of the book the author and many of the other characters are realising that being part of the 'pick-up artist' world doesn't necessarily make you any happier in the long run.

Based purely on entertainment value though, The Game is brilliant. I could not stop reading it because it really was very funny in parts. I was fascinated by Strauss's encounters with celebrities and his personal transformation journey. It was hard not to get carried into the crazy world of the 'pick-up artists', it was like falling into Wonderland. A disturbing and compelling read. ( )

The Game sends out a very mixed message to wannabe PUAs: You’ll get laid a lot, but you may try to commit suicide..., lose your job, or like Strauss almost alienate the love of your life. Not to mention herpes!

"I could not become anything: neither bad nor good, neither a scoundrel nor an honest man, neither a hero nor an insect. And now I am eking out my days in my corner, taunting myself with the bitter and entirely useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot seriously become anything; that only a fool can become something."  /. Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from Underground

Dedicated to the thousands of people I talked to in bars, clubs, malls, airports, grocery stores, subways, and elevators over the last two years. 

If you are reading this, I want you to know that I wasn't running game on you. I was being sincere. Really. You were different.
