Not for the faint of heart.,
This review is from: The Art of Seduction (Paperback)
If you are just looking for a good book to help you get laid with minimal effort, then put this book down. There are books that are much easier and will get you results much faster. This book is not about getting easy pussy at a bar or strip joint. It is about helping a person fall deeply in love with you, and this is better. A person in lust for you is wild and not concerned about you. A person in love with you will go to the ends of the earth for you.
If you have very little background in psychology and/or philosophy, put this book down because you're not ready to understand it yet. It is an incredible book and I hope you don't get turned off because you're not prepared to read it.
If you are a die hard, conservative Christian moralist who is happy with their life and belief system, then PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put this book down. Your beliefs will change to some extent, I promise, regardless of how strong you think they are. And if they don't you'll just be filled with dissonant emotions when you really understand what the Bible means when it says the world can be a terrible place.
On the other hand, if you are intelligent, observant, and patient then this is just simply an incredible read. You will see everything in this world with a new outlook. It will teach you the most intricate workings of human nature. Human nature is dark. Consider the following two biological facts:
1. A woman is likely to retain more sperm when she has an orgasm during sex.
2. A man's sperm is designed to kill the sperm of other men.
What does this mean? Women have been biologically hardwired to seek one man (the Alpha male) to be the sperm donor and to seek out another to raise the kid (the Beta male). Sorry folks, nature is just that dark. And this book has exactly the same kind of dark twists. It explains what makes people fall for other people, even if it is not so pure and wholesome. And though it is dark, it still is true, and there is beauty in truth.
This book will teach you how to play other people's emotions. This is a very important thing to learn. One cannot survive in this world without these skills. The most important thing people must realize about this book is that what is containes here is a dual edged sword. It most certainly can be used for evil. It does teach manipulation. But it also a book that can be used for good. With this kind of knowledge one can keep their partner happy for life. A seducer is a benevolent manipulator by definition.
For instance, if the seducer is really interested in mutual benefit, much useful learning will take place. A woman will learn that the most powerful way to keep her man happy is to be a sexual woman and a fun playmate. She will learn how to keep things spiced up with a few masculine psychological traits to appeal to masculine narcissism, deepen a man's love by giving him the gift of missing her. A man will learn how important it is to let his woman know how much he desires her and will also keep things spiced up with styling. Men and women can both learn how to keep people happy by being nondefensive and natural, to psychologically enrich others by being charismatic and charming, and to give and receive love as ideal lovers. And I've seen how much people who embody the psychological traits of the anti-seducer are despised by other people. The anti-seducer leaves people feeling diminished and hurt.
To summarize, it's hard, it's dark, and it can be used to wreak havoc in the lives of others. But most people don't want to hurt others. They want to live, and help other people live, better, happier more enriched lives in all ways. I truly believe that with the knowledge that is in this book, people can accomplish just that.
Use it wisely, young Jedi. The dark side of the force is much more seductive.

I'm sorry, but that could have been said IN A BETTER WAY! Just because someone has chosen to have MORALS does NOT IMPLY STUPIDY! It is not my intention to start a fight but I INTENSELY RESENT YOUR ARROGANCE!

I don't need to take ANYTHING! This reviewer was being exceptionally HAUGHTY and DISREPECTFUL towards a class of people. Just because you're PRINCIPLED doesn't mean you're stupid!

Although your comments are interesting, you are also making way too many assumptions.

It is this review that is the determining factor that this book for me is what I've been searching for in my time of personal growth.

I have read the 48 Laws of Power and found it fascinating. My ethics are still my ethics, but there's lots of room for maneuvering within them, inside the 48 Laws. So now I'm curious about this book about "Seduction." Of course I deplore underhanded ways to get a person's attention. The nerve! But look here: I've been a victim of this for at least 20 years, the nice girl who always loses to some far more seductive/manipulative piece of trash. I experimented with it, dropped it, finally decided I didn't need some idiot who would fall for some tramp's act. And then recently I've had a change of heart, realizing I'm deeply in love with a friend of 30 years. Long story why we never got together; the short version is that we are taught in this society not to go around seducing people and following our instincts without thinking about the long term. I didn't want to live the boring lifestyle he had in mind, and I saw that some key values were not in sync, even as that lovestruck teenager I was back then. Now we're mature. Grownups. Maybe some key values aren't so key anymore, later in life. So I did the wrong thing, honestly confessing my love for him. Ick, how un-seductive! Of course he claimed he was too heartbroken from the divorce to move on, blah blah blah. And apply your ethics test to this one: watching a deeply loved friend get swindled -- twice -- by barracuda women, and seeing he is actually none the wiser where it would actually change his knee-jerk turned-on responses to control freaks. What then? Does the nice, ethical girl stand back and watch the third time happen? Or does she put on her manipulation face and seduce the hell out of him, away from all that? Through all my loving and caring about him, how I can "seduce" (maybe more like "persuade") him to look into that destructive pattern he's holding. In short, even if we know that seduction isn't love, often love can't bloom without going through seduction first. God's little trick to keep us procreating and sometimes even caring about someone.

An Amazon in Brooklyn says:
The hysterical part is you are proving his point.
Please step off your high horse, being religous does not make you "Principled".
That doesn't mean you have "Morals" as well. What makes you think that reading a book gives you those qualities?
Just pathetic really. Come on "PanicAttack" (a name that couldn't suit you better), post another dumb comment, you really are entertaining.

He did imply that Christians are not intelligent, observant, or patient.
However, be fair: he implied that of those who have no background in psychology or philosophy as well.
