I'll add a couple things I've read that were beneficial to me that I also recommend to others.
"Mack Tactics" by Dean Cortez. - It covers SOOO many areas in the subject of "pickup". Conversational ideas, Ways to approach, Getting the proper mindest, Closing the deal, etc. Also a very entertaining read!! Dean has a magnetic personality, so you definitely get wrapped up in the book!!
"The Single Man’s Guide to Great Women" by Tiffany Taylor. - This was actually the FIRST thing I read when I found myself single again after a 10 year marriage. Tiffany does a great job of explaining what really goes on behind the scenes in a woman's mind! No B.S., no sugar coating... just honest information & insight into the psyche of women! (This book alone was like gold to me! Because right after I read it, I began using the info she shares, & I swear I feel like I have an unfair advantage when I talk to women now.)
"The Tao of Badass" by Joshua Pellicer - - Largely geared towards self-improvement & psychology... but definitely full of extremely useful information! This book actually helped me understand myself better. (Kinda like Tiffany's book helped me understand women better.)
"b4utxther" & "HOW2TXTHER" - (Multiple authors) - These texting guides definitely opened up my eyes to understand how to sharpen my text game! After reading these, it all made more sense to me. I was also able to customize the info, and incorporate my own personality/style, while using the principles & techniques they shared.
"The Game" by Neil Strauss- However, I'll admit that the reason I listed it may be different than most people might. This was actually the most recent book I read. (Last week) But I realized I share some similarities with Neil (AKA "Style") Those being: He still had insecurities. He was somewhat humble... He also expressed his vulnerability, & admitted that the whole "pickup" game wasn't as satisfying after a while. He actually wanted to find that "one special girl" & use his new found knowledge to find her, and have a meaningful relationship. So, it had a more personal effect on me in that way.
There are SOOOOO many other things I could list here. Some aren't "books" in the usual sense, but rather "courses / programs".
But I'll share the one that I felt had the most directly useful & beneficial information, geared towards the "seduction" aspect:
"The Seduction Roadmap" by Jon Sinn.- Jon TOTALLY has the seduction game down to a science! I have used some of his techniques over the past couple months, & I have to say, they are EXTREMELY effective! So, whether your main objective is to "get laid" or to build a meaningful relationship, Seduction is one of those important factors. If you can't seduce a woman, you can't be anything more than a friend to her.
Anyway, thanks to "The Red Baron" for mentioning the idea to explain WHY we recommend these books. I think that this thread has the potential to increase its value to all of us, if we all give our personal insights about our favorite reads, and share what we were able to get from them!
