Its gonna be unusual...plus update from 1 to 2 stars.
on March 12, 2012
Maybe its not fair, but wait, I promise I'll make up . After reading only 60 pages I had to get up and write. However, my pledge when finished in few days, I'll write another review. Here is why;
A third of the book is about when you go out on a first date and the girl/guy is not calling you back or not picking up your call. How not to get frustrated, not to worry, because the other person really didn't get a chance to get to know us, and that some people fuss over it for months. Ok, mention it, it can happen, but the author makes it seem like everyone is like that, crying over. Repeating process endlessly in a boring way. Who does that anyway, is this a book for teenagers? I've read some books on relationships and pickup. Some better ones like "The way of the superior man", some that were good and innovative when they came out, maybe little outdated now, "the game", "mystery method", some really entertaining "get laid or die trying" . The rest just like bad copies with rearranged words "how to get the girl, ignore and score" or another bad one "the art of approach, the a game guide....".
Now, not only its my opinion, also my friends who don't even read books on the subject or are not familiar with pickup community, will not cry over someone not returning a call. Anyway over 20 reviews in less than 2 months from the publishing. Are these reviewers authors friends? Also there is a new trend on Amazon. First copies are distributed among friends or sold at big discount, that's what Richard La Ruina did with "the natural"and which dating coaches don't have a large social circle.
As promised, let me finish the book and you can either thank me for not spending money on this cr*p, or I'll take it all back and if the book is worth it and innovative, there will be two informative reviews that will definitely contribute to improving one's relationship and sales of "naked"
Re-review, after finishing.
Shortly, 2 stars total, up from 1 star before. The author has his point, when talking about honesty and love.
Sometimes its not very practical, like in saying "don't spill candy in the lobby" . I still think that the book is not bringing anything new, and lacks in creativity. Also lots of reviews do sound like sales pitch. "Buy this book! " and so on. Many reviewers must know the writer personally, either by using his first name, some even admitting. So I wouldn't rely on all those 5 stars reviews. Worth the money? I don't really care about few bucks, worth the time? Definitely no.
