The book is squarely aimed at guys with very little experience with women. The author, when telling his story, says that he had only kissed a couple of girls by the time he was in his 20's. He decided to try anything and everything to improve his game and those are the things he writes about in the book. It is interesting to see how much of these concepts are nothing more than common sense to a lot of guys, but for those that it is not this book will probably be very helpful.
The book does a good job of breaking down the steps that guys should take and then perfecting them. As with any other skill, practice and repetition do make big differences. If you don't know how to approach women, or are too afraid to do so, this book could help you get over the hump.
Overall, I'd recommend this book to anyone that feels that they just don't have the confidence to walk up to a random woman and talk to her. If you can already approach a woman and start up a conversation than you probably don't need to waste your time.
First of all, I think this is a well written book, concise, to the point, written in a very conversational and friendly tone that anyone can follow. I believe it encourages men to have more self respect and gather as much confidence in themselves as they possible can. I always like to see genuine encouragement from a fellow human. I also believe it took the author a lot of courage to write this book. On the whole, the psychoanalytical aspects of this book are fascinating, in parts it's very funny and I believe it is beneficial for anyone wanting to improve their general confidence with anyone, not just a particular gender. However my main reservation comes one part of the book, and something streaking like guile, which is unnecessary. I am not saying the author is advocating this, merely that there is a slight undercurrent of it and men regarding it in general. The reviewers who are reviewing the author's personal charachter are contributing an irrelevant discussion, his personality is irrespective of the work, so stop judging the book by those standards.
Women would much prefer honesty about your intentions. If there is one thing people value at all times it is honesty. Gentleman there are women who will screw you silly out in no need of anything in return but you do not need to deceive a girl who isn't of that persuasion. There is no need to humiliate a woman into thinking you have feelings for her you don't possess. Why would you want to intentionally hurt someone? Instead of being sly, come clean. I do not see what is so hard about saying to a prospective girl 'Let's skip the jazz.You're an amazingly hot girl.Read more ›
I can only recommend this book if you are willing to know other routines or new some new lines. This natural PUA thing that Gambler teaches is not natural at all. It's still routine-based for the beginners and when it comes to advanced PUAs, the "natural" game is stage of uncontious competece, which was first described by Neil Strauss. The is not very original and copies many of Mystery's own teachings.
In fact, I would definitely recommend Mystery's first book and Revelation, Love System's Magic Bullets and Neil Strauss' Rules of the Game for the ones that are interested in real pickup artistry. "The Natural" is just an appendix book compared to the aforementioned ones.
True, much of what is in the book was already covered in his old book, which was by far the best book on this subject I'd ever read. The new book is perhaps a little better because it's a little less autobiographical with a little more daygame thrown in, which is what I was hoping for.
So if you're new to pick up then this book is by far the best thing on the subject you'll read, a perfect introduction, although my one complaint coming from a newbie perspective would be the lack of material on approach anxiety. This is still the number 1 issue for most guys starting in pick up. I've found the book by Charlie Valentino; Destroy Approach Anxiety - Effortlessly Approach Women Without Fear to be the best book on that subject and should be the first book all aspiring pick up artists should read.
If you are however advanced in pick up then you're not going to get an awful lot of new material from The Natural, if any at all. But I'll conclude by saying it is still probably the best book on this subject! But I don't think it quite matches up to the hype. Still, I'll give it a 5 star!
