From Publishers Weekly
Never at risk of being called humble, Mystery (aka Erik von Markovik), heralded as one of the best pick-up artists in the country, has created a science of seduction. His meticulously researched system, the "Mystery Method," offers advice to men of every ilk, along with complex charts, social science jargon (e.g., Dynamic Social Homostasis and DHV—Demonstrations of Higher Value) and potty humor Mystery comes off as forceful, provocative and excessively arrogant, but one thing is clear: he's good at what he does. You'll laugh, you'll scoff, but in the end, you'll probably learn something. (Feb.)

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.
I'm not going to go into a lengthy review of this book as you should already know what the PUA community is all about. If by some chance you don't, just look online for the VH1 Show called "The Pickup Artist" and you'll soon know what kind of book this is.
This book will not do the following for you: find you a wife, give you self-esteem/self-confidence, make you taller/thinner/muscular or make your hair grow back. So in other words: if you're a 5'2", overweight bald man with no confidence, odds are pretty low that the Kate Upton look-alike at the end of the bar will ever be interested in you.
Sorry, but some things just can't be overcome. Nowhere in the book does the author promise an overnight transformation either.
What this book WILL do for you is clue you in as to how women think and give you the tools you need to improve your odds of scoring and scoring with hotter women than you're getting now.
Some of these reviews have been written by very clueless and introverted men who've never felt comfortable talking to attractive women. Some of these guys are much like the contestants on Biggest Loser who're really motivated and pumped-up when they first get to the ranch. And then they go through their first workout. And then reality sets in and suddenly they realize just how much pain and suffering they're going to have to endure to even get close to their goals.
That's what happens in this book. It says early on that the game is played out there in the real world. Read the book all you want and imagine various scenarios in your head but you won't grow as a person until you're in a crowded nightclub and you're staring rejection & embarrassment right in the face.
All-in-all this book is a little dry to read but that's because it get's right down to business. Incredible book for the price.
One last thing----this book is not about long-term relationships or marriage. For that, I highly recommend "The System" by Doc Love aka Tom Hodges. Much broader overview of relationships and women in general but he covers very little "in-the-field" craftwork.
