    Default A book I highly recommend way better than The Game

    Just picked up Rules of The Game at a local Barnes and Noble. Looked through and it has advice, challenges, and mindsets for 30 days of approaching (or 30 times going out). I looked through The Game and it looks weak talking about stories rather than a whole lot of advice. Going to be using it next year highly since my game was getting stale but this has tons of stuff such as your frame for phone game which I extremely liked stories just won't help me. If you are looking for a good book Rules of the Game by Neil Strauss is awesome going to be reading it at work a lot and using it next year.

    NM, I am getting The Game too next check as both books are so awesome. Mystery's book didn't grab my interest though.

    It looks interesting, and at a good price. I just might get it myself.

    honestly, the book "the game" by neil struass won't help your game, however it will lead you to a lot of books that will.

    you should read books like

    "double your dating" by david de angelo
    "how to meet and connect with woman" by wayne elise
    "mystery method" by mystery
    "natural game" by gambler

    these are books that truly will help you to succeed.

    Like Meteora said, The Game won't exactly help you with PUA, it simply tells a story or a journey of an AFC turning into a PUA. The Game is a good read because it shows the change but it also shows PUA gurus like Mystery who can get laid at any given time can still succumb to depression to almost going through with suicide. I highly recommend reading The Game first then Rules of the Game.

    EDIT: I'm reading through The Game right now

    I didn't really like "Rules of the Game" by Neil Strauss. Or at least, I didn't like the methods, as they didn't seem to align with my personality. There were some great references and tips and tricks in there, like the practice of Huna to master your inner game, and working on Approach Anxiety. But you can learn about Huna all on your own in much more detail and there are tons of information on approach anxiety out there.

    "Rules of the Game" is what I call a "method" book. It outlines a method that can help you with your game. You can learn game through practicing methods until it becomes natural for you and you eventually succeed, but I think this is a brute force way of learning and inefficient.

    For example, the practice of Huna mentioned earlier is a way to actively reprogram your subconscious. It has nothing to do with pickup specifically, but it is nonetheless a very powerful tool in improving your inner game. Approach Anxiety is a product of your subconscious. So is confidence and self worth.

    So a book on Huna would be to me a "concept" book. My idea is that Cold Approaching several times a day using canned openers will eventually brute force your subconscious into losing the Fear mechanism of Approach Anxiety, but Huna is a more efficient way to get the same results.

    The cool thing about method books is that they do touch upon concepts, and usually point to resources where you can explore those concepts further. Additionally, they apply those concepts to the challenge of pickup for you, which many would prefer.

    You're the expert around here. That's the next book I'll get.
