The 'Game' or Pick-up artist (PUA) movement has been growing in recent years. Basically, if you haven't come across it, its a collection of psychological techniques for pressing women's buttons in order to get them to be attracted to you.

A couple of years ago there was a man who posted on a PUA forum called So Suave and had his own blog called Pook's Mill. His basic messag

A book about how to be a man in a feminist world.

This is clearly the best book I have ever read.

How would I describe this book? This compilation of forum posts came from a PUA forum, so yes, I suppose it leans in towards PUA, and mostly, inner game material. But this is so much more than that!

The Book of Pook teaches you to be a man and to not give in to the power that women yield over spineless guys. More effectively, the book wants you to respect yourself and to love yourself. If you don't love yourself, how can you expect anyone else to lov
Don't categorize it as PUA, red pill, or a pickup guide. Yeah it teaches you what women are really thinking and is a survival guide for this feminism rampant society, but more importantly it teaches you to value yourself. Deeper than picking up girls, the techniques and philosophies here will grow you into a better person.
This book as huge downside! I want to read more, I want to talk to the author - invite him to my house an discuss this subjects.
I had huge moments of awareness and realizations that make a lot of sense. Guys are being feminine and passive, being reactive rather than active.
Shiittt, this book is awesome. The way that Pook writes is funny and very easy to understand. We can see he has read a lot and thinks regularly about this stuff.
He should do a "real" book.

I can say that he changed my life for

It has sound advice on many different areas of life, all of them usually related to sexuality.

Since the first time I met this “community” I could never manage to force myself to enter in a forum about seduction, nothing against guys there, but I don’t think it would be great for my personal evolution to be in one.

Contradicting my prejudice it was easy to see that the author of those posts was indeed successful with women. In this seduction community, as in all other areas of life, immediate exp

It's kinda hard to get anything useful from this book, it is very radical and challenging to the mainstream belief, good for motivation but it is very easy for an immature reader to read this and turn into a misogynistic and resentful creep.
Was directed to this by a friend, and I couldn't get past the first few pages. Not touching this pile of crap again.
5 stars for zeal and life, 1 star for misogynistic bullshit, of which there's a shocking amount.
Josh Smith
Disregard women, acquire aesthetics, acquire currency, acquire bros, acquire puppies.

This was a great book. So many life lessons packed into this, I had to just stop reading this and rethink all my beliefs. This book focused on changing people inside out and that is exactly what it did to me. Whoever this guy Pook is, he has a great writing style (filled with humor) and explains concepts in such a simple way. I think I've learned all that I needed to learn and I'm just a little disappointed by the fact that I didn't find this book 5 years ago!
Impressive for a collection of online posts. Great wisdom to be digested, with a grain of salt provided

“You are caught in the vicious cycle. You are hesitant because you are not used for
things going your way. And things will never go your way because you remain
hesitant. You see what you want, become hesitant, and the door of opportunity
closes. It happens again. And again. And again. With each choice towards
Inaction, you reject yourself a little bit more.”
