Author makes assumptions without modern day fact. This script does not translate well to modern times. No research is used (besides the author's) to verify his assumptions.

Margin of book glued too close, I am unable to read the first words on each line unless I hold the book in the air at an angle. The ink is also very faded on the pages and it is hard to read. I am very disappointed. The book is put together very poorly.

Many of the techniques in this book work well because they are partially based on fear, trauma, and intermittent reinforcement.

Animals that are exposed to intermittent reinforcement in lab experiments suffer psychologically.
In humans in order for this to work first they must be dosed with an unexpected and heavy amount of "pleasure" (attention, gifts, etc.)or a reward which the seducer gives after carefully studying their target. Once the target is hooked then the reward is reduced. Then pain is introduced. The target is then conditioned by the seducer to endure pain hoping for the initial pleasure or "reward". The target will never get that initial reward again because it was just a hook to lure them.
The target will become obsessive, ill, and will grasp at trying to obtain relief from their pain or a "pleasure reward". They will endure pain and frustration even if the amount of pleasure they were originally "dosed" is reduced. They will eventually accept occasional crumbs of pleasure and endure more and more pain. It is a bad situation to be in and really has nothing to do with romance, love or idealizing someone. It is more like gambling and creates addiction in the target's brain- that is not true seduction.
You couldn't do this to someone you actually respected.

Relationships based on intermittent reinforcement are very difficult to get out of and cause psychological damage.
There is nothing "seductive" about that. And anyone who seduces you in that method can't really appreciate or respect you because you are just responding to fear and pleasure rewards and never really knew you to begin with.

A truly seductive person does need to cause pain, and be manipulative to the extent described in this book.
How to Win Friends and Influence People is a much more effective book in winning over others while being authentic.

Like his other exercises in opportunism (on power and war) Mr. Greene falls into that category of writer who leaps on people's insecurities by providing a "how-to" manual in checklist form. As if the art of generalship or political power or sexual conquest was as simple as assembling an Ikea bookshelf. All you need are the right instructions.

This will no more help you understand or become a Casanova than a "23 Laws of being a Fashion Model" will turn you into Heidi Klum. Save your money.

If you want to learn how to be a scumbag, look no further, this is the book for you. My copy was returned: I couldn't endure seeing it on my bookshelf.
