Mystery gets into deep reasons behind why people behave the way they do, using evolutionary psychology and personal experience to back up his claims. As you digest the material you will start to be able to read and influence people like never before. You'll wonder how you could have missed so much.
Mystery also devels into what it means to be truly be human and be alive. Again the goal of this book is to not just to get you better with woman but to have an overall better and more impactful life. To realize your own self worth and no longer allow your life to be hinged on the opinions and actions of others.
However with all this knowledge you risk opening a can of worms. If your not careful you may lose yourself in the process and social interactions will feel less fulfilling and exciting. Mystery teaches you things that are unknown to 99% of the population, and you may at times wish you could unlearn things.
However at the end of the day the wisdom, knowledge and insight you gain from reading this book far outweighs any negatives you might experience. If anything the skills you learn from this book will trickle into other areas of your life, and should you so choose, improve those areas drastically.
I wouldn't recommend you reading mysterys book without first reading his colleagues Neil Strausses two books on the subject. "The Game" is what jump started the whole pickup industry and serves as a great intro to the community. It is more of story telling book. His other book "Rules Of The Game" is more of a how to book and the Style Life Challege section is meant to be a life changing program.
Once you've read the aforementioned Strauss books, and completed the Style Life Challenge, you'll be more much more prepared for Mysterys techniques and insights. If the seduction community books were weighted on a scale Mystery's would be like a graduate level book, and your better of working your way up to it.
But once you do, and you really began to understand and master Mysterys social dynamics and lifestyle changes you will not be disappointed. It will seem like you experience the world in an entire different and good way. Some people may even become jealous (a sign your doing good) and thanks to mystery you'll know how to handle those people. If done right you will find the best version of your self. And you'll actually be glad that your were socially awkward and sucked with the opposite sex. Because it lead you onto this road of self improvement and you'll find yourself "flying by" and suppressing the "naturals". Because you had to work hard to obtain something that came easy to others you left them in the dirt.
Other essential books (if you have the time) to read is "No More Mr Nice Guy", "The Solution to Social Anxiety", "Modern Romance", "Text Appeal For Guys", "Survival of The S***test", "The Geeks Shall Inherit The Earth", "The Like Switch", "The Selfish Gene" & "The Rational Male" (volumes 1 & 2). Each of these books fits into the theme of self improvement, and understanding why people behave they way they do and how you should behave. And of course bettering your romance/game. Again I feel Mysterys Book is not meant to be read in a vacuum. It's a significant puzzle piece in finding the best "you" there is.
The Mystery Method, as well as the aforementioned Strauss books, have been amoung the most influential in my life and for many other people as well. In hindsight I would have never thought that reading a few books on improving my skills with woman would lead to a lifestyle epiphany and change of such great proportion.
My last piece of advice though would be to be careful who you share this knowledge with. When so many other people suck it makes it easier for you to stand out. A good magician, which is Mystery is, never reaveals their secrets.
The whole thing feels like a sales pitch with a few kernels of actionable advice/information sprinkled throughout. Most if not all of this information can be found online for free via google searches and youtube videos. There's certainly not any information in this book that isn't repeated by other PUAs, other than the author's personal stories.

I would recommend this book as a good addition to your reading regarding dating advice/game, but be aware that sometimes it is a bit repetitive and outdated with old terms, due to the fact that the authors didn't bother about updating the book to the current society, so you'll have to get your comprehension out of it and adapt it to nowadays.
I’ve read and listened to many others speak on this topic. Non of them provide information in such clear and understandable fashion.
This book is simply timeless! It is as relevant today, as much as it ever was and will be.
If studied and applied, this practical piece of literature will change your life.
Very interesting !
I sometimes felt that things were drawn out and could of been explained without the “fluffiness” that I thought was unnecessarily added.
