About the Author

"I got my feet wet in the game when I was only 17 years old and was in the game for over 30 years. And in those 30 years I had gone from Park Avenue to park bench and back again. How can you coach rookie Players on how to reach the top of the game if you've never been there and how can you warn them on how to avoid the bottom if you've never taken a fall? I wish I had read an instructional book like this one when I first got in the game but no such book like this one ever existed, that is until now!"

Most books about Pimping are either in two categories, biographies or a how to pimp book. The how to pimp type books are usually written by some non-pimping authors who write about nonsense and total misinformation. They don't have a pimp bone in there body and couldn't pimp there way out of a paper bag and could never instruct and teach a student how to pimp. Every how to pimp book prior to this one in the last 30 years was garbage. However Mr.Curtis has written a very informative study guide on how to pimp hoes. He breaks down the history of the Pimp and Hoe Game. The definition of a true and correct Pimp, which is a man who has a woman who is a prostitute go out and make money and her giving him every penny of that money. He of course has to clothe, feed and provide housing for her as well as be her man and lover. It's a personal and buisness relationship all in one. He explains the art of recruiting women for his stable which is called campaigning. He also explains all the different methods hoes use to catch dates (clients) everything from streetwalking (pimping hoes on the track/hoe stroll)even starting a brand new hoe stroll to incall/outcall escort to her working in upscale hotel louges and bars to brothel workers to call girls. He breaks each method down to a science and shows how to advertise on the internet and alternative weekly newspapers. He also teaches how important it is for a Pimp to dress sharp and neat, have excellent hygiene and how to build his credit rating up so he can finance a high power car and a house that bespeaks affluence and prestiege. Most important he lists 10 Commandmants of the Game the first one never do drugs of any kind and the second save every penny that you can.Read more ›

The book does not clearly take you from A-Z-beginner to pimp-as your lead to beleive. The author talks about campaigning and macking, but does not describe how to break social barriers, how to powerframe and condition one's psychie, etc. There is a lot of useful information about dress.

The author basically describes the game and how to recruit prostitutes by using an online escort out call service. It is often written in long convoluted sentences. An entertaining read, but not helpful.

Although there are massive grammatical errors, Curtis has definitely done his homework on the topic. He gives a lot of sensible advice, and not just for wannabe pimps (ex. buy a used car, where to advertise cheaply, etc.) and gives data to prove his arguments. In fact, some of his information, such as the history of pimping and current federal laws regarding the trafficking of sexual workers, were even used in a research paper I wrote about the human sex trade.

I thought that Ice did a good job of explaining and showing aspects of the game that have not been shown before.
