    Great idea!!

    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!

    "How to Win Friends and Influence People" - is mostly a guide to becoming generally likable. This is a good example of how to be a nice guy but not an AFC.

    "How to Read a Person Like a Book" - explains body language as clusters of gestures and how to recognize them and what they mean.

    "Conversation: A Smart Guide to Flirting" - goes into pretty thorough detail about conversational segues and self-disclosure/follow-ups to develop multiple threads witg a person you've just met. I use a lot of this to build rapport, to slip in DHVs naturally, and to back-reference negs.

    (Not 100% sure that's the title of the last one, I'll update once I'm off the interstate.)

    Hope this helps!

    That last one is called:

    "How to Attract Anyone, Anytime, Anyplace: The Smart Guide to Flirting" - it's really good for, like I said, multiple conversational threads, and finding openers / content in field.

    Another good one for personal development - though not specifically PU.

    "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" - this is good for improving your life in health, wealth, love, whichever you like.

    Red - Did you read any books David D metioned in his book?

    Also, he has a seperate Ebook called "Attraction Is Not a Choice." I thought it was OK... mostly dealt with aa's "evolutionary origins" which I personally didn't think he needed to focus on so much. Also, it wasn't as tight writing wise as Double Your Dating. Any other reviews welcome.

    And the first PUA thing I ever bought was Double your Dating so it has an unfair leverage with me LOL.

    Anyone who hasnt read it REALLY should... its cheap, easy to understand and focuses on INNER GAME. Which most guys Don't even realize is an issue. Ex of a great idea I STILL use: BE JAMES BOND! Watch JB movies... look at his posture and movements. That one piece of advice hekped me BIG TIME.

    And stay away from the book (sorry forgot what it was called. EDIT: Social Competance by manhood academy) about how feminism is evil. A friend I know really got into that and it is just SO negative. It does neither men nor women any favors. It disrespects women in a HUGE way.

    Its funny how people say PUA is sleazy. But it is waaay more positive and respectful to women than that other stuff!

    I've found that anything by Dale Carnegie (author of "How to Win Friends and Influence People") is great for increasing social skills in general, which relate directly to game.

    Could you actually post who the authors of those books are?
    I'd like to give my own reviews, but so far I've only read the Game. I'm pretty new to this whole thing.

    Just finished 'Attraction Code' by Vin Dicarlo.

    Overall,pretty good book. Covers basic stuff such as approaching, Kino etc. Then He goes into his 4EP model which mostly involves states, friction and how to overcome these. Also uses terms that i never heard such as shaping (its when you imply to a girl how she should be. I.e. u ask how supportive she is to her friends, which implies that is wat u want in a girl).

    He has a good writing style and i was impressed with his ongoing story about Patrick... a character who is learning pick up. That could help newbies relate. Also, Vin states a couple solid points throughout ... my fave is 'a woman tests you because she is attracted to you.' Pretty much a DUH statement but i dont think i ever read it stated so clearly. He also explains how to ATTRACT COWORKERS and the benefits of doing so. Its a small section but worth noting because people always ask about that.

    One con of the book is that he kinda disses becoming an inner game junkie. Inner game is very important especially when u r starting out so i disagreed with this. I guess he was just trying to make the point that u shouldnt always worry about your inner game all the time. Most of what he says later on actually is inner game anyway .

    Also format could be better. He fills it with useless pics of chicks or guys with chicks. Maybe there is a psychological reason for this i don't know. But it would have cut out alot of extra pages. I bet its barely 100 pages without that (page count is 264). I still have to finish his 4 free ebooks that come with it.

    OVERALL SCORE: 3 out of 5
