5.0 out of 5 stars Essential PUA material!, October 6, 2010
By 
Magic Lemur (Somewhere in Madagascar) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Nations Favourite Love Poems a Selection (Paperback)
Many PUA's read books such as The Selfish Gene, Sperm Wars or Palm Reading. However, I would seriously recommend books of love poetry, starting with this, to help them understand the missing element of their philosophy: love.

This book has some wonderful poetry in it and, as anyone who has read The Selfish Gene will tell you, poetry has a wonderfully seductive quality. By reading this, not only will you discover some superb poems that show you that 'another poet has been there before you' (from Back cover), but you will also be imbued with the ethos of passionate, tender poetry that will make you a more soulful, more loving human being.

Of course, there are some woolly and, frankly, boring poems, which can be pretentious. I personally have no time for Ted Hughes and one or two of the John Donne poems are a little soppy or outdated. However, if a poem doesn't grab you, you can be pretty sure another will, soon after.

So, if you want to improve your dating, or full on PUA skills, you could do worse than read this book. Pay special attention to page 75 ('On Marriage'), which is the staple of many professional Gurus but also pay attention to 'Valentine' on page 56, which shows the beauty of appreciative love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mix of traditional, lyrical and irreverant, June 6, 2013
This review is from: Nations Favourite Love Poems a Selection (Paperback)
Can't be 5 star cause I don't love them all - but there's so many great ones. It's an excellent collection, ESP for those dipping into poetry, like me
