Re: Give me some reccomended reading
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.
