This review is from: 15 Steps to Becoming a Master Seducer (Paperback)
I was surprised to read the other reviews and their glowing praise, the book is rather weak. Where it may be more useful is for past students of the author, but for everyone else (which includes myself), avoid and get The Natural Art of Seduction: Secrets of Success With Women instead.
The book starts of with what can only be described as 40 pages of stroking the author's ego: "I am so great", "I get loads of hot guys coming up to me" etc. Nearly every sentence has the words "me" or "I" in it. Sadly there is little indication of why the reader should pay any attention to what the author has to say, and judging from the writing style they shouldn't.
The rest of the book is largely a repeat of has been said in other books or what is freely available on-line. This would be OK, but there are better books out there for this. What practical exercises there are, are poorly introduced and not sufficiently explained.
* For a reader new to the area, and who hasn't read "The Game" by Neil Strauss (or another book on pickup), most of the terminology will be confusing (A note to the publisher - if there is a second edition, add a glossary).
* For a reader who has read a few books on the subject you will find it too basic, and it doesn't really cover anything new.
What is sad is that it claims to give guys an insight into the way girls think, this would have been interesting. However, this is completely lacking as all you get in an insight into the bloated ego of the author.
Avoid this book.

Normally I wouldn't reply but this is really interesting.
Why is one person's experience of something more or less valid that another's? It is nice that you enjoyed the book and you've reviewed, but why go further than this? If I am wrong, and this is not your book, what would drives you to go above and beyond just writing a review and just leaving it at that, what affect does a divergent opinion have on you?
