Description

Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the bestselling author and journalist, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the last decade—guaranteed to change the lives of men and transform the way women understand the opposite sex forever.

On his journey from AFC (average frustrated chump) to PUA (pick-up artist) to PUG (pick-up guru), Strauss not only shares scores of original seduction techniques but also has unforgettable encounters with the likes of Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Heidi Fleiss, and Courtney Love. And then things really start to get strange—and passions lead to betrayals lead to violence. The Game is the story of one man's transformation from frog to prince to prisoner in the most unforgettable book of this generation.

    Was looking forward to reading this book. So I paid for it, waited, waited, and waited. To my surprise, the book never downloaded. Smh. I’d like a refund !

    Neil Strauss delivers a page-turner that does not disappoint! I’ve read The Game many times, and the entertainment is top-notch. Neil’s time spent in the pickup artist (PUA) community is very well-documented in this thrilling tale of overcoming and conquering social fears and dating. Warning: Buy the sequel, Rules of the Game, as well, because you’re sure to want the action to continue once you’ve turned the last page of this book!
  • Fantastically Addictive

    This is my first ever review for a book thats i feel free to share my thoughts on. I think that after reading the Game, we all want to be style and come out on top like a boss. This book has revolutionized the way we not only read but learn. Ive learned so much that my friends and my dad have failed to teach me and im truly greatful for not only learning the pick up artist community (which i would have never known existed) but for learning how to make myself a better man. This book is the carved stone in your life that will be remembered for a long time.
  • Style of writing is great

    The books ending was a bit of a disappointment and it seemed to happen too abruptly. I also felt lost on more than one occasion; when terms & acronyms, specific to the pickup-artist community (PUA), were tossed around without being clearly defined (till the end of the book). But other than that, great read

    One of the best books Ive ever read. Recommended by my brother who thought it would be perfect to read going into my senior year of high school. Very easy to read and a satisfying and life changing book. For anyone who reads this, guy or girl, it does not only help you with meeting new people which is one of the most human satisfying thing to do, but shows life lessons and understanding of life.
  • Great
