Dubbed "The lazy man's way to easy success with 20 or more women a month," How to Become an Alpha Male is the no-risk, never-fail blueprint on how to 'magnetically' attract an endless flow of beautiful women to you... without ever having to play their games or deal with rejection.Sold as an ebook at, John Alexander's guide is now available, for the first time ever, as a hardcopy book.You see, once you have these secrets all the 'work' of meeting women will be done for


It's a solid, well-rounded dating book. The author himself practices exactly what he preaches--and he preaches it well. The way the book is narrated is a lot like what would happen if a well-read, well-traveled bro friend you had told you how it was with women: while simplifying this process in terms virtually any guy can understand, he does not condescend or come off as a douche at all--the two problems I believe many authors have when they write books of these type.

The title and marketing of this book is quite misleading. Don't let the tackiness fool you. There is some great nuggets of information in this book if you are interested in self-development and dating.

One of the biggest takeaways is that to assert dominance in any social situation is to hold the frame. If you haven't heard of this before through sales or psychology you will enjoy this book.

As other reviewers pointed out, everything that is said in the book should be taken with a grain of salt. Certain hints are kinda obvious and make sense. Some others are not necessarily right as every person you meet is different.

If a woman says, "No!" then stop what you are doing. If you force a woman to have sex, then you have committed the crim
Nothing particularly ground-breaking, but a good review of fundamentals around success with women and dating. If you're just starting to read on the topic, this may be a good one to start with. I'd recommend seeking out the e-books and videos from David DeAngelo for further knowledge and inspiration.

On the plus side, my asshole bad boy character is gonna be more realistic after reading this Neanderthal dreck literature.
Don't let the tacky cover fool you. It is a fabulous book on personality development.
