My education continues with another reminder of why feminism is needed, and why I'm lucky I was born when I was. This book is disgusting. On the very first page, it makes a casual reference to rape - "she's so hot for a second you consider rape" - and then continues to be incredibly offensive. Apparently, the way to pick up girls is to talk to them, because they're made so desperate by not being able to approach men that a few words are all that is needed. They really like when guys talk dirty t...
If only that was the first an only book which would come out in the area of romantic and down-to earth meetings between the two sexes... I think that it might be the only valuable modern socializing self-help book for males, that does not dive into misogyny, pickup "artistry", MRA and other unfortunate phenomena which appeared over the years.
Decided to read this because it was attributed as being the original pickup book in Neil Strauss' The Game. This pickup classic, published in the 1970s, sold millions of copies because it offered a different paradigm, namely of making pickup a possibility.Weber is attributed as the grand-father of pickup, and the first to present it as a skill. He said that it's like anything, you get better at it after time, and it not just your looks that count. Weber encouraged guys to see talking to girls as...
Well, I was in High School. It seemed to give me confidence for long enough to win the heart of the girl who I would take to Junior Prom and who would then go on to crush my heart and soul. Ah, High School.
Banal, nothing of new. It gives you common tips that don't solve truly the problem of how to get to know you girls and how to be interesting to them. Knowing how to pick up girl require skills that are useful also in the everyday life, but this book doesn't teach you this. For example, it says that the first thing a woman looks for in a man is a good personality; but it doesn't say what makes a good personality. Or, another example, it simply says that to attract a woman you have just to be your...
I read the first edition hardcover from 1970. Not the 1980 paperback which is the earliest in the Goodreads system.My favourite part of the book is where the author suggests that the best way to meet lots of single women is to join a ballet class. He calms the reader, explaining that the girls won't think they are gay, they will see that he is a "real man".That's both classy and classic.So far the least offensive of all the pick-up material I've been reading lately, but it's also the most dated
Very helpful book that's been updated a few times since its initial release. It's a fun, very readable book that inspires confidence. Would recommend this over what the so-called "experts" of today have to say. There's a reason it's sold millions of copies and been translated into many different languages. It works.
my room-mate found this book i don't know where, it was moldy and smelled funny but we had many fun nights reading aloud and laughing at how utterly stupid it was. as for advice i can't say it's really helpful, but for entertainment it was pretty good.
