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.
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.

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
"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.
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.
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.
