This review is from: The Game (Paperback)
To be fair the story is not interesting at all as it narrates the unbearable celebrity-like lifestyle with a group of immature, needy and psychologically unstable people playing an odd plan called 'The Game'
Players of 'The Game', treat women as targets that should be seduced, convinced (or even tricked) and conquered. They justify anti-social or aggressive behaviours of themselves through a kind of social Darwinism and then define sexual intercourse as the ultimate gaol to be achieved with their targets. People who can go through all these stages easily and successfully call themselves PUAs, eventually becoming obsessed with this pattern, giving up all the normal life to play and teach 'The Game' for living. In fact, Neil demonstrates that 'The Game' is not as interesting as it sounds at first and can be quite difficult to cope with its consequences.
Leaving the story behind, the book has some good points and quotes to offer. If you read the book until the end with an open-mind, you can easily spot the references to real invaluable stuff like the body-language analysis, human psychology and evolutionary biology. You can read on them to understand human interaction with the opposite sex and play your own version of the game.
