As I read page after page I became more and more interested. I was seeing some of my coworkers in a new light. They acted just like some of the people in this book, some of which I had looked up to. A little more than halfway through, I began to see what direction this book was going in. I am glad I read this book all the way through. I thought that it was women that I was missing in my life. I needed to become a pickup artist, or so I thought. While it is true that women are noticeably absent from my life, that wasn't the source of my emptiness. It was confidence.
It wasn't until the end of book that I realized that I didn't need any fine tuned pickup lines. I needed to just be me, but with more confidence. This book has given me the basic tools I need to start conversations with random strangers, to meet new people, which I had been to afraid to do. So what if they don't like me, the right people for me will. All I need to do is get out there and socialize.
While this book still makes me want to go out and try to pickup women, it's not to become a pickup artist. It's to further myself in every aspect of my life. Women are my vice in life, my weakness, I am afraid of rejection and thusly, afraid of women. If I can overcome my biggest obstacle with confidence, then there is nothing I can't do. Even though Neil Strauss will never know of me and never know how big of an impact his book has had on me, his book has unlocked the door to my future that I can now begin to open. I cannot thank him enough for writing this book. Very highly recommended!

After the first chapter I would recommend it to anyone. I am now at the Mission - end of chapter 1 and have decided to take about an hour a day to go through each chapter.
To understand and get a true feel for what you are reading, you must begin at the beginning, reading the feedbacks of past participants. So far it covers Limiting beliefs, causes you to think about your mindset, your reality check and relates to aspects of personal life, which I believe will translate into how you do business. I quick glance says it is not all about picking up chicks. If you think that you will be missing the purpose of this book. No cheating! Do not skip or jump ahead.
I purchased Rules of the Game on my Kindle so it is easy to access and because someone recommended it to me. That someone is a Million dollar earner online. I look forward to continued reading and following up on the missions at the end of each chapter. As I proceed I will no doubt find others in my team who have also purchased the book and who is willing to discuss its content..
Nonetheless, as Willy Wonka wisely said, "sometimes you have to take a step back, before you can take a step forward."
Neil's journey through the underworld of PUAs is an enlightening one of how we discover ourselves through our interactions with others...in more ways than one.
A cool story of a not-so good looking man , who shares experiences and tactics about the Pickup Artist community - which I was not aware even existed.
Besides the actual story I found the principles non-obvious, but nevertheless useful. Honestly I am intrigued to learn more...
Anyway I highlighted quite a number of rows to read again and again. Good job Style!
This book discusses many dating techniques via a story, and for this, many people have judged the book mainly for it's techniques, and not for it's quality. Here is my review of this book.
If someone asked you to read this book and told you to rate it based solely on it's story telling ability, it would be 5 stars.
If someone asked you to read this book and told you to rate it based solely on how informative it was of how the community operates, it would be a 5 star book.
If someone asked you to read this book and rate based solely on the insights and realizations about life of someone who is practicing pickup, it would be 5 stars.
In every way shape and form, this book is 5 stars. The only thing anyone ever questions is the techniques taught. The techniques are closer to 3 stars, but that just negates from the fact that everything else is 5 stars.
