From the Author

"With great powers come great responsibilities." Strangely, when I heard those words from Peter Parker in Spiderman, I thought of the insane amount of scams and tricks I'm capable of and how lucky the world is that I use them for good. I grew up having to stay a step ahead of people for survival. As a business owner, I've had to keep that skill of adapting alive. As a full time magician, I've mastered what tricks breaks the ice and how to read a person like a book. These skills become apparent to others at my shows. When I'm done performing at a private party, it is amazing how many teenagers and grown men approach me and ask the question, "Can you just show me one simple trick I can do to impress a girl?" This constant request, combined my with vast experience of observation, brought me to create Tricks To Pick Up Chicks. My hope is that men around the world will take a new approach to meeting women. It is not about the tricks, but an excuse and ease to be yourself anytime, anywhere. The tricks in this book hook a lady's interest and let you be yourself in a fun and confident manner- the two things woman want most! Woman aside, the tricks, bets and scams you are about to learn are great fun for life. As a recently married man, I still use these tricks to make my wife smile daily. I have created a collection of nearly self-working miracles perfect for men of any age, personality, confidence level and ability. You are all set. Go out and share all the magic life has to offer... and meet lots of women while you are at it!

Having seen Rich perform many times, I felt like I could hear his voice and enthusiasm in the words while reading the book.

Returning this right now. I bought this because I love magic and thought this was up close magic book with a tongue in cheek title. No, this guy really approaches this book not as an ice breaker but he really thinks a guy can pick up chicks by reading his book. Comes complete with cheesy pick up lines and even set ups for your "Wingman". Who says wingman anymore. If you like magic buy a legit magic book but this ain't it.

I thought this book was really cool! First off it is organized really well and has funny "sexual innuendo" titles for the chapters, which I thought were rather clever. It has lots of cool tricks (simple and quick to more involved ones...such as including a wingman), some pretty sweet bar bets, and even a section on body language. Even if you don't want to "Pick Up Chicks", this is just a really neat book to own. It's totally worth the money. I'd definitely buy it again. In fact, I think I'll be buying several of these to give out as X-mas gifts this year. Some of my friends and relatives will LOVE this kind of thing...especially the college-age ones!

PS. THIS BOOK HAS BASICALLY ALREADY PAID FOR ITSELF...CONSIDERING THE DRINKS I'VE WON USING SOME OF THE "BAR BETS" I'M ACTUALLY AHEAD...AND I'M SURE TO WIN MORE IN THE FUTURE!!!

While intended to aid a guy in impressing the ladies, this book can really help anyone feel more comfortable in social situations. Some of the tricks are easy enough to pick up in one try and can really help break the ice and get the laughter going. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to feel more confident around people.

A friend of mine suggested pick up this book, and I'm so glad that I did! It's more about reading and interpreting body language than it is about picking up chicks, which is why I say it works great for picking up dudes too! This is a must read for anyone that interacts with people on a regular basis - in other words, for EVERYONE!

a lot of these tricks require too much prep imo
some of them are pretty childish too.
maybe just buy a book on magic, origami, sleight of hand ... and incorporate it into your approach.

I highly recommend this book. I have followed Rich Ferguson's work over the years and he is hilarious. The one-liners and come-backs in this book are my favorites. If you are looking for a way to break awkward silences in bar setting or anywhere-- this is your book!

This book has a lot of fancy tricks that I've never seen before and I use them even if not to pick up chicks used at parties or get togethers for live entertainment.
