Editorial Reviews

Review

"I highly recommend the book for anyone who's into game. It's funny and entertaining, and a bit educational. Most of all, it's a book that is honest and real and moving." - Chris Shepherd, Tenmagnet.com, lovesystems

"An introduction to a very witty, insightful, acerbic, intensely imaginative new naughty boy in literature. And in times like these, discovering someone with this unique brand of introspective talent as to why we interact the way we do is a gift. Use it." - Grady Harp, Amazon Top Ten  Hall of Fame reviewer.

"Great read. Solid writing and full of truth. I would highly recommend this to any man looking to improve his life and insight."
Sharpshooter, Returnofkings.com

From the Author

I wanted to highlight certain states of mind and exaggerate specific examples with poetry, to heighten the dramatic effect and illuminate philosophies.  Therefore it is a work of fiction. 

The manuscript travelled with me across North America, South East Asia, and back again.

My review comes from the perspective of a young woman living in Montreal. I am not a pick-up artist, as many of his readers are, but nonetheless I found the book highly entertaining and read it in a matter of days.

The first thing that struck me when reading this book was that I had never heard a man was admit to suffering from body image issues. I always thought that women were the only ones to suffer from body dysmorphia, and assumed men had it easy, not caring what they look like. It was refreshing to see the author's vulnerability in regard to his body.

Tony's story reveals the irony of loving women, but hating them at the same time because his entire self-worth was built on their acceptance or rejection of him. He took me on a continuous roller coaster of highs (the moments of feeling like a rockstar, an unstoppable man) and the inevitable lows. We can all relate to these feelings of self-love and self-hate. This is inevitable if your happiness is dependent on others (in his case, women).

Perhaps the part I enjoyed the most was seeing a man take action, and being proactive about his unhappiness. I found myself applauding him for stepping up and learning all he could to get what he thought he wanted in life. He went all-in. What I find most admirable about pick up artists is their belief that you are not destined to live a certain life-- you are a dynamic being and you change anything about yourself, including your personality. Tony demonstrates just how far some men go in the name of self-improvement. It makes you wonder if there really are any limits to who you can become in this world. He says in the book, "Limiting beliefs are limits you set for yourself."

Tony shows the evolution of a loser becoming a rock star in his own universe.

I came upon the book while during a time when I was struggling with certain aspects in my life, mostly related to meeting new people. The book really helped me out and kept me motivated during this period. It was an interesting read and it may be just me but I found it helpful for what I was and still am trying to achieve with my life.

It is always beguiling to see an author with a moniker the like of the one that Tony D has selected. The question invariable arises `Why is he not using his own name, is this book that off center as to not merit ownership?' So we check his biographical data and fine the follow: ' Tony was created in 1978 when his father inseminated his mother in an undisclosed location in Canada. He then published his first book, "A Thousand Tiny Failures - Memoirs of a Pickup Artist," and then a short self-help book, "I Hope it's Sunny Out - A Guide For Meeting Girls in the Day Time." That's it. Nothing else happened. Tony likes guitars, travel, reading, flirting, writing, and smart people. He currently lives in Vancouver BC and travels extensively as a dating coach for his company, AbsoluteAbility.com.' So what are we left with? The answer is an introduction to a very witty, insightful, acerbic, intensely imaginative new naughty boy in literature. And in times like these, discovering someone with this unique brand of introspective talent as to why we interact the way we do is a gift. Use it.

Tony D (I don't know, do we refer to time as Tony or as D - problem with moniker referencing...) establishes his main character Sebastian as a kid with boobs bigger than prepubescent girls and the exceptionally embarrassing life this imposed. But obsessed with idealized sexual encounters he marches through life (modified mastectomies intact) with less than satisfactory encounters (all hilariously detailed), discovers the wondrous world of Internet match making programs, takes it one step further and becomes more widely available as a PUA (that is pickup artist, and no truck are not necessarily involved).

Tony has a hilarious and unabashed writing style that lays out his seductive conquests in detail. He jokes frequently both about the interplay between men and women in the dating game, but also about his own short comings and philosophical views. I enjoyed each encounter he has with women, he puts each in their own chapter and he doesn't hold back anything. It's certainly a kiss and tell book! I think any guy can identify with the teenage angst at the beginning and the journey of self development that follows. My only issue is that it seems a bit short, I read through this in two sittings and felt like the ending could of simply have been the beginning of part 2. It was a quick but highly entertaining read.

Never have I read a tome that perfectly expressed my love/hate affair with the art of pickup so well as Tony D has.

His humor comes through the pages magnificently, and I found myself chuckling throughout, especially relating to having a tall, good looking guy try to pickup a girl you were planning on taking home, thinking of nothing better than, "punching him in his stupid face." Juvenile? Maybe, but I'd be lying if I hadn't thought the same thing to myself at least a few times in my life.

Tony D also does a great job retelling his experiences and not necessarily telling the reader what to (or not to) do. He may explain his thinking at the moment, but it never comes across like him unloading his expertise on the reader.

In that case, if you were hoping to get some tips on picking up women, its best to look elsewhere, though you may reconsider even dabbling in the pickup arts after reading through the book.

My only problem with the book was the fact that it seems like it didn't have a concrete ending. Did Tony ever go back to bussing tables after quitting another busboy job at the end of the book? Did he ever meet his special someone? Is he still cynical about love? He's obviously done well for himself with his coaching and writing (this book is an excellent example of his talent for writing), but I would've enjoyed hearing it come from him.
Especially considering the amount of self reflection picking up lots of women gives you, it would've been nice to see Tony D go more in depth about how he now had the confidence to never work just "any" job.

A book like this begs for a part 2. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone curious about what life is like for a pickup artist.

Read it, and gain the knowledge necessary to prevent a good looking French guy from taking your woman to his place to show her his "films", all while a Jacob from Twilight look alike acts as your wingman even though he's said woman's ex-bf.
