Description

The Game recounts the incredible adventures of the everyday man who transforms himself from a shy, awkward writer into the quick-witted, smooth-talking Style, a character irresistible to women. But just when life is better than he could have ever dreamed (he uses his techniques on Britney Spears, receives life coaching from Tom Cruise, moves into a mansion with Courtney Love, and is officially voted the World's Number One Pickup Artist), he falls head over heels for a woman who can beat him at his own game.

Jaw-dropping and hilarious, The Game reveals the naked truth about sex, love, and relationships - and getting exactly what you want.

I loved the message

I loved the conclusion, you can't use seduction (therefore deception) to build a relationship. If you're too rigid and have an answer for everything but none of it conveys your personality then only your persona can be loved. The book warns you of the danger of learning pickup to feel a void in your heart, it can't.

Weird, sad, but interesting

Any additional comments?

I decided to listen to this book because I wanted to find out what the Pick Up Artist community is all about, why it exists and what they do. I find the whole PUA culture weird, disturbing and rather tragic, but I found this book very interesting and compelling.

It doesn't say good things about our society that the PUA community is so large and that guys feel this is the best, or only, way to meet women. I understand that part of the process if to make men feel more confident in themselves and therefore make them happier and more attractive. This seems like the positive part of the process, but they way they go about it and their attitudes towards women are just WEIRD. It seemed like they saw women as another species who have to be tricked and manipulated, or even a collectible card game where you try and get the special edition card that the other guys covet the most. It didn't seem like they were getting to know women or picking up girls they were personally interested in, but trying to score the 'prizes' they thought would most impress other men.

I don't think this is a book to listen to if you want to learn the PUA techniques, but it's very entertaining if you want to find out about the culture and what they were up to at the time this was written (apparently things have changed and the movement has split into competitive factions all trying to cash in on some mens inability to talk to women).Overall, although I enjoyed the craziness of the car-crash being played out in the book, it made me feel pretty sad about the state of male/female relationships, and I had to keep reminding myself that these guys are in the minority. The narration is good and the pace of the book is good too.

Captivating story

Strauss proves that in the short space of two years one can go trough a complete radical transformation if the motivation is strong enough. But the message is clear, be careful what you wish for!

Great listen

I found this book very entertaining. It was easy to listen and get into this novel, and not once did it lose my attention.

Entertaining but don't expect to be educational

A great and interesting story. A entertaining book with some good pick up tips. It's not a "educational" book, but it was good reading.

Very good story, emotional, psychological.

Very good story, emotional, psychological. The reading was however too fast. I needed to hear it at 75% speed.

Still good stuff!

Read it in German some years ago and it definitely makes you think more about self-improvement.
