    Default Give me some reccomended reading

    I'm a 20 year old college student and I've always had a couple of friends. Well, quite frankly, I'm sick of that. I want a lot of friends and I want to be more confident and improve my Social Status. I don't necessarily want to read a book about improving my "game", I want to read a book about how to generally improve yourself socially. I have some social anxiety that I want to completely get rid of and I am sick of living with it.

    Bottom line: I want to be more alpha, more outgoing, and have fun with people. Please recommend some books on how to improve social status, make more friends, becoming well liked, being more confident, being more alpha, being more outgoing, etc. The more detailed and real life scenario oriented, the better.

    I am serious about wanting to improve myself. It's really been bugging me A TON for the past few weeks and it's time to put an end to it.

    Thanks fellas.

    How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. Old but you can't go wrong with that. Common sense social advice which actually works.

    Also, his books about public speaking present a lot of advice on how to become more charismatic and attractive.

    Dayton, allow me to introduce myself. I am Swagman, also a college student of twenty years old, and I also suffered through the same problems that you did. However, I have put myself through many different readings, and I have had numerous successes now because of it.

    In order, here is where I began:

    The Game - This gives you a taste of what the game is like. It gives you some general ideas and the how-tos, but for a college student it will not do much for you.

    Real Social Dynamics - This was THE ultimate audio series to improve my game. Tyler Durden deals a lot with mental game and how to operate with it. If you need some help in confidence, this is where you start.

    Derek Rake - He's not a book. He's a pick-up artist who specializes in surprise. He aims to teach you how to pick up women by going out of the ordinary and being unpredictable. He has three things you can read.

    The 50th Law - Have the backbone of a sponge? 50 Cent can help you out with that. I just finished the book recently, and I can't count how many times my jaw dropped when I realized that the opposite of what he was telling was me was actually what I was doing at the moment.

    The Art of Seduction - This is a book by Robert Greene, and it's a doozy if you don't understand the language. I'd have to say, I understood very little reading through it my very first time. It does teach you about the different kind of people and how to approach them though.

    conquer your campus - Now THIS is the book for you. It basically educates you on college social life and how to react to it. This is my current book, and so far I am finding some interesting stuff in there.

    There's a load of other short readings that I can't remember, but here goes the one thing that has helped me out the most: participating on this site. Ask questions, and answer them. Nothing helps the young striving pick-up artist more than interacting with the masters.
    "There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time." - Malcolm X
