The Game


Nearly every major city in the world has them: hidden underground seduction lairs where men gather to trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to seduce women.

This is not fiction.

For two years, bestselling author Neil Strauss lived among these men. Using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity, he began his remarkable journey from AFC (Average Frustrated Chump) to PUA (Pickup Artist) to PUG (Pickup Guru) —refining his approach, sharing unforgettable encounters with the likes of Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Courtney Love, and ultimately transforming himself from frog to prince . . . to prisoner.

And then things started to get really strange.

One of the most explosive and controversial books in years, The Game is guaranteed to change the lives of men and transform the way women understand the opposite sex forever.

«he said this did that» kind of style of narration, almost like children’s litterature (not in content, obviously). the narrator totally did not intrigue me at all, sorting under «being a writer because of need for being seen + loved». finding his outing of friends and other real people very problematic. suspect he is positioning himself as the best of PUAs just to sell more books. way too American blown up, pompous and shallow style for my liking. only read it because I had enocuntered men whom used the methods (and exact PU-lines) on me, and was in need of understanding my own situation. and this is the 1st and foremost problematic thing about the book: some men (and women?) seem to take it as a guide not as a warning - and that is because of the author’s choices and attitude. one great thing about the book though: Courtney Love makes a perfect character. She should have been given more space, instead of that ennoying narrator.
