Format: Paperback
This book is written by a man with obvious respect for women, and unlike many of those hideous books on "how to get layed", offers some real insight on how to form meaningful relationships.
Although Rom is not a doctor or psychologist he uses his experience to place men into four basic types "Mr. Goodbars, Masked Men, Nice Guys and Gamesmen", each with their virtues and faults, and explains how to become "The Real Man", who women are looking for.
Rom writes with heart unlike some similar books on offer, and although the book is quite short (119 pages) it offers excellent advise. Some of which is common sense, but it makes you see things from a woman's point of view, and will hopefully help you find a sole-mate and true love.
Overall very good value for money.
Also worth considering is "How to make any one fall in love with you" by Leil Lowndes.

I read the other review and bought the book, it's short and sweet, outlines some very simple differences of male / female interaction's and how men and women are perceived by both sexes.
It doesn't promise to change your life but it might provoke you into opening your eyes a little. This is the first book I have read of it's kind and have already lent it to a mate who says the same. Brilliant advice. If you have ever had a relationship that you couldn't figure out why it ended or why women acted in a certain way, this is the one to read and then have another think about it.
If you don't want to read it - your loss.

HASH(0x99a3baf8) out of 5 stars waste of time and money 9 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Firstly this book is *very* lightweight in two respects. Its 122 pages are printed in very large type, and the writing style is juvenile. His main conceit is his use of invented personas and their stories of success and failure, all added without analysis and insight. "Ron dresses well, in casual, but smart attire and he has a good car - its a sports convertible. He works in a law firm, earns a good salary. He met Denise at a party and they hit it off. They dated for a while, but then she left him". Truly kindergarten stuff.
He focuses a great deal of the book on defining 4 types of men (which he lifted from somewhere else) and goes on about their plus points and negative points. His lack of actual content is glaringly revealed about two-thirds in when he rehashes his definition of these four types in order to pad out this meagre offering.
The focus of this book is totally on the "what" with practically nothing of insight at all on the "how". And half of the "what" points he makes are dubious to say the least.
To anyone interested, here is the complete advice that Rom gives:
1- dress smart
2- work out
3- be clean
4- read some non-fiction
5- be confident
6- be honest
7- errr that's it

HASH(0x9a597da4) out of 5 stars Very thorough and interesting read . . . .. 26 Feb. 2006
By Alan Roger Currie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm an author of my own relationships-related book, "Mode One: Let The Women Know What You're REALLY Thinking," and I actually use one or two quotes from Rom Wills' book in my own book.

"Nice Guys and Players: Becoming The Man Women Want" breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of both the typical "nice guy," and the popular "player" types.

One of my favorite quotes from this book is, "Women want that feeling of excitement when they deal with a man. Too many men often play it safe because it seems more responsible and they think that's what women want. Women want both responsibility AND excitement." This is SO TRUE.

One more quote I love, that is also SO TRUE, is when Wills says, "Sex is really the main difference between a 'nice guy' and a 'player.' The most consistent statement by women about the 'nice guys' is that they are not good in bed. If they were good in bed, they wouldn't be nice guys. They would be called Mr. Right."

In my experience, "player" types are not always more handsome than nice guys, or have more money or better jobs than nice guys, but if there are one or two qualities "players" have that most "nice guys" don't is that 1) "players" are typically way more SELF-CONFIDENT than the average "nice guy" types; 2) "players" know how to arouse & seduce women far more effectively than "nice guy" types.

I would recommend this book to any single, heterosexual male.

HASH(0x9a597e64) out of 5 stars I NEEDED THIS 10 Mar. 2005
By Martin & Janey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I always knew I was a 'nice guy', and my relationships have always ended with the woman I love saying...'I love you, but I don't want to BE with you anymore...but we can be best friends.' I've not even finished this book yet, but seeing in print what I've know deep down all along has already given me the strength to take control of my life back from these women. It hit me like a lightning bolt. I'm a kind person at heart, and always felt like I would be 'playing games' if I didn't just do what came naturally. What I realize now is, being true to what I want, and being assertive is not a game. It's empowering, and I feel better about myself already. I will always be kind, but I'll never allow myself to be taken advantage of again!

HASH(0x9a162558) out of 5 stars Changed my Life 21 Mar. 2001
By Anthony Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book from the author back in September. I have to say it changed my life. Before reading this book my dating life was hit and miss with more of an emphasis on miss. I always heard that old line,"You're such a Nice Guy but..." All that changed after I bought Rom's book. He told me, "This book will change your life." So I read it and the after following Rom's advice...WOW!
In a few short months I went from a man who barely got the time of day to having very beautiful women ask me out! I've read other books on how to pick up women but the difference with Nice Guys and Players is that I found out how to draw women to me. No pick-up lines. No hypnosis. I don't have to be a jerk. With a few changes I became a babe magnet.
I e-mailed Rom Wills a couple of weeks ago to tell him about the changes. He said the following: "You're just at the beginning young apprentice. Follow my words to the letter and you get to point where you can attract women no matter what you are wearing, without spending money, and without saying a word. You must, however, follow my words to the letter. "
I thought, "Wow, I can do even better!"
I recommend this book to all men. Rom takes the luck out of the dating game and replaces it with science.

HASH(0x99a3bfb4) out of 5 stars Subconscious Transformation 28 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Many people miss the point of a book like Nice Guys and Players because they are looking for cheap tricks or rather an easy way to meet women. The reality is that if someone wasn't attracting women to begin with, a few lines is not going to change their luck in a few weeks. For a person to change they must change habits and conditionings ingrained in their subconscious.
I give Nice Guys and Players 5 stars because the information contained will produce a subconscious change in an individual. For example, many men want methods to develop the trait of confidence. Rom Wills in one of his chapters advises men to start businesses. Being responsible for a business and being able to succeed is a sure way to increase confidence and competence which are traits which attract women like moths. Rom also talks about physical fitness. The health and visual benefits of physical fitness are obvious, however, the subconscious benefits are even more important. For example, if a man develops himself where he can bench press three hundred pounds this represents a subconscious confidence builder. This confidence can be transferred to other areas of life.
I highly recommend this book for men who want a real change in their lives. I also recommend Rom's follow-up book, Sexual Chemistry: Nice Guys and Players Level II. Sexual Chemistry is deeper and even more esoteric but it's a must read for men serious about transforming their lives.
