This is a book for men with a sense of humor. Most importantly, it is a book for men who want to get physical with attractive, interesting women. Toward that end, the book is chocked full of outstanding suggestions. But the most two important pieces of manly advice in the book are: 1. draw validation from your own life, not from relationships with women, and 2. seek confident women who draw validation from their own lives--who are not needy. I think this sort of confidence begins with humor and a willingness to see dating for what it is: a game. Many times in order to meet the right woman, the book maintains, a man needs to play the "numbers" game. Meeting, dating, and sharing physical intimacy with a variety of women is a healthy part of a single man's life.
I realize not everyone feels this way. I read the 90 plus reviews and realized that it is a "love it or hate it" book. Understandably so. Most of the book's detractors fall into recognizable categories: men who don't want to be told the obvious (make your car clean & romantic, dress nice); men who have sensitive dispositions; and women who find the book downright offensive.
Many of the men and women who wrote scathing reviews indicated that any man who tries the suggestions in the book is simply an immoral opportunist. I want especially to address this issue. It is never wrong to create a romantic atmospshere on a date. Anyone who thinks otherwise would most likely not make a pleasant date. If your desire is to compliment, to touch a woman both physically and emotionally, then you should do just that, and do what is necessary toward that end.
The books maintains three important things: 1. it makes perfect sense to have a number of romantic possibilities while one is single; 2.

Format: Paperback
What I liked best about this book is how much hands-on and useful stuff it has in it. I was able to start using their program right away, and I liked the way their program moved step-by-step through meeting women, overcoming rejection, and more. I also liked the way they broke down seduction into steps, so now I can tell where I am in a seduction--am I at first meeting, flirting, getting the number, setting the date, on the priming date or the seduction date--very useful distinction, there--or so on. I also like the overall guidelines they give, and how much they show you the importance of following them. I can't believe, for instance, how often I've interacted with a woman without an outcome in mind--it's easy to say you should have an outcome in mind, but they actually show you how to do it, moment by moment, so you are never just "randomly chatting" with a woman--you are moving the seduction forward. I also never knew that a woman sleeps with you because of how you make her feel, rather than because of how you look or whatever. And I'd been making the mistake of trying to be friends first with women I met--I didn't realize that women are deciding in the first three minutes whether to make a guy a "lowly friend," as they call him in the book, or a lover. It's been so simple to turn that around, now that I know how! I wish I'd had this book years ago. Their simple two-step process for overcoming rejection fear is worth the price of the book all by itself! I'm just a couple of weeks into using the program and women are responding to me as a MAN now, and as a potential lover, rather than as some nice boy who they want to be "just friends" with. Thanks to the authors--this is the "real deal."

Format: Paperback
I think the book can be very good for many people (as other reviews indicate). However, I think the audience for the book isn't 'anyone with male genitals'.
Imagine the CEO of a near-bankruptcy company taking a course on how to increase profits from 50 cents per share to 52. That sums up the experience for me. If your goal is to get a better margin - i.e. get more and better-looking women with minimal effort, I can certainly imagine this book may be of value to you. Buy this book if you want to better your batting average (I may sound critical because I'm jealous, that's all).
The book offers lots of tips (some trivial, some insightful) on how to go about dating a woman so that the romance happens more often and faster. It offers some useful tips on communicating with women in general. It also provides some nice ideas for giving women romantic gifts. And last on the good parts - it's filled with good advice on how to handle problems that arise in your interactions and relationships with women.
So how is it that I didn't find the book useful? Well, the underlying assumption in this book is that your problem is skill, and that all you need is some coaching and practice (like my basketball coach used to say). It advocates the truism that the more women you date, the more women you'll get (like a 3rd grade math book would say). It encourages you to always look your best and be at your best (like everybody says). It suggests that you build up your confidence to get more women (like the Southpark movie said). It suggests that you don't be afraid of rejection and that you get your validation from your life rather than from women (like a really bad therapist would say) . All in all it encourages you to take it easy (like the most annoying of people say).
