Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Roosh V's Bang has been called a "pickup classic" and "bible," one that he wrote after many years of dedicated study in the game. The book's success has led Roosh to having a dedicated fanbase of tens of thousands of men who read his blog, newsletter, and forum. He is regarded as one of the more "honest" and "natural" game gurus out there, one who has leveraged his former profession as a scientist to systematically breaking down what works and what doesn't when it comes to getting laid.

This book is exactly what it says it is. It gives you the know-how to get laid, even if you stink with girls right now. This book isn't some magic trick that makes you immediately a ladies man. But it gives you the know how of what to do, and what not to do, to make girls want to have sex with you. This book has 3 main chapters: Early Game, Middle Game, and Late Game. Early game is the approach/what to say to start an initial attraction. Middle game is basically what to do on first dates to get her to want sex, and late game is what to do when you already have her alone at your place. The great thing about this book is even if you just want to meet more girls, and not necessary hook up with all of them, you can learn that just by reading the early game, which is the largest section of the book. Whether you want a hook up, or just more friends that are girls if you're new in town, you need to get over your fear and learn how to approach strangers and make conversation, which this book definitely gives you tips for.

I'm delighted to report that MOST of the advice in 'BANG' also works just as effectively for us older guys too, not just 20 or 30-somethings.

I'm over 50, divorced for several years, and have to admit I was at first surprised to read the advice, the approaches, the do's and don'ts, and just the overall content / tips featured in 'BANG'. A few I already knew, but many were new ideas for me, and since my targets are always older than Roosh's target women I was a bit skeptical that his tips would work with middle-aged women. My target women are always 40+ in age and have been around the block with men ... yet even so, the tips in 'BANG' have very noticeably improved my scoring, so much so that a couple of my buddies have also bought the book after hearing me praise it.

Let me hasten to add that I am of average height, average weight and fitness level, DEFINITELY only average looks (now losing a bit of my graying hair), and I'm not wealthy by any means (are there ANY wealthy guys left after a divorce?), yet the tips in 'BANG' have been like upping my scoring percentage with a 'performance enhancing drug'.

If you value an active sex life NO MATTER WHAT AGE YOU ARE, then I very highly recommend 'BANG' for every male. It's been the best impulse purchase I've made in years!

Picking up literature about how to improve your success with women is usually a distasteful experience for me. Contained in one of these books you will often find some stock lines, a few routines to run, some little games that women like to play when they are first meeting someone; if anyone has actually had success with more traditional pickup material it is because they have completely borrowed all the components that make a man attractive. This is not so with "Bang." Roosh advocates what most would label "natural game" but I would call it "authentic game." In fact, the word "game" is somewhat misleading because there is no deception or illusion or any other sleight of hand that is talked about in these pages. What you will learn is how to evaluate your strengths, your positive qualities and how to highlight them to members of the opposite sex with humor and confidence. At the same time, you will receive an education on all the classic beginner's mistakes, of which there are a multitude. The result is that, if you abide by the guidance contained inside, you can't help but become the kind of man that likes himself better and is therefore more successful at just about anything he does. All of Roosh's material is simple, modular, and can easily be fitted to suit your personality so that you don't have to assume the persona of someone else to get the results you're hoping for. What you'll also find is a brutally honest evaluation of what to expect, how to handle the inevitable disappointments, and how to not become discouraged and continue improving. Roosh is a guy with over a decade of field experience, which is astonishing because he doesn't hesitate to describe his failures with just as much honesty as his accomplishments.Read more ›

Great Read. Enlightening to say the least, especially useful to fully understand the American "Dating System", that people from other parts of the globe might not be as familiar with as they think they are. Bang is a solid insightful read for multiple reasons:

- Roosh goes straight to the point explaining you what to do and how to overcome the most basic issues that can arise at the beginning of a relationship ;-).

- There is no idiotic narrative in Bang. Simplicity is a great virtue: this book teaches you what to do being consistent with your own identity and who you are, ergo there is no need to memorize over-complicated and highly artificial routines, as it has been suggested by other authors.

- Bang is a highly pragmatic handbook where Roosh provides you with a step by step breakdown of the most typical obstacles you might encounter in the dating world. Yes, because obstacles they are, and being able to recognize them as such is what allows you to thrive and communicate better. I found particularly interesting the analysis centered on the dysfunctional usage of mobile phones, that fundamentally over-complicates getting in touch with someone rather than facilitating the process.

- The book gives you an enlightening portrait of the American dating system providing you a keen understanding of specific cultural differences.

- Dont miss the text messaging guide. That is gold too. Very up to date.

In conclusion, many people dont even care about learning the game. Why? as that could dangerously shake the pillars of a comfort zone that has been fiercely defended for years. Learning something new might trigger regret. Still, for those willing to challenge and empower themselves, Bang is a must read. It will change the way you relate to women. No doubt. Just remember "With great power comes great responsibility..."
