Who said that?
> men/women shouldn´t be in the need of the opposite sex and just care about themselves
Where did you get that? That is really bad advice.
You should read the book before making such harsh prejudices.(less)
So, while our fathers pursue career, sport, women or whatever else they find to be exciting, a lot of teen boys are left ...more
It is NOT a good policy to push ahead with women you hardly know until they force you to stop. DO NOT DO THIS.
Always ask and anything less than an enthusiastic yes is a no.
The first 180 pages or so of this book is excellent advice. Much better than the advice in The Game or No More Mr. Nice Guy or any other book I've read, and I want to tell ever ...more
Social status is determined by how you behave around other people, how other people behave around you, and how you treat yourself.
Neediness is defined by being more highly invested in other people's perceptions of you than your perceptions of yourself.
Humans are attracted to each other's rough edges.
Intentions speak way louder than lines, it's about why you say it, not what you say.
It comes down to what's being sub-communicated. When in doubt, che ...more
Wow, just wow. This is so fucked up.
Trying to benevolently overlook all that's bad about this, the author actually makes some good points (though if they're new to you, seek help). What's in Models? 3 main points: Be interesting, be interested, and don't be such a fucking retard. Can't argue with those except the author seems to think they are only important to connect with women...
There is so much wrong with this book that I found it very hard to take seriously at all. Starting with the fact th...more

Having in mind that I am not the target audience for Models, it might be unsurprising that the book didn't strike the chord as eye-opening. It was quite interesting to know a bit more about the possible mindsets - it seems that ...more

As a former performer (pick-up), this book saved my life just in time.
As a kid I knew that being more real and vulnerable is the right way
to have a healthy and fulfilling relationships, and I did have, as a kid.
With more and more poisonous pressure from the majority of my peers at
middle school, to make chatting with girls a challenge,
I was persuaded to think that I WASN'T RIGHT.
They were, of course, pushing around MANIPULATIVE RELATIONSH ...more
The book starts out with really solid advice. Work on cultivating your interests, being confident in yourself, shape up your appearance, be polarizing (make people have an opinion about you!).
However, towards the end it devolves into misogynistic drivel that don't necessarily help his point. And it's pretty rape-y Some gems:
"As is often the case, women are terri ...more
"The general principle at work here is that you want to gently push things towards sex until she says stop. If she doesn’t say stop, keep going. [...] ...our general guideline here is that we continue until a woman makes us stop. This means she physically stops you – i.e., moves your hands off of her, moves away from you, puts her clothes back on, etc. – or clearly and verbally s ...more
it's not particularly badly written, in fact if you want this sort of picking up woman self help book this should probably be towards the top of the list.
That being said, I personally found it far too preachy and ended up being the step by step guide it at first promised not to be.
I'm now an expert in exactly when to stop talking to woman immediately when they're not interested in a sexual relationship, what to wear to attract woman and how ...more
It mostly boils down to don't be a piece of shit.
It primarily talks about how the most unattractive things a guy can be are needy or narcissistic. And then talks about how to identify those tendencies in oneself and how to deal with them. And like his other book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck, Manson does a fantastic job of being pragmatic and ...more
Earlier in the year I was in the middle of a promising friendship that was on the cusp of forming into a relationship, sadly as time went on the amazing connection I had faded away this prompted me to examine why and what made this happen. Before reading this book I thought the ending of this amazing connection was rooted in problems in the last 2 weeks, but after reading this book I realized the seeds ...more
When I first read The subtle art of not giving a fuck I found Mr Manson quite funny and engaging. He had a lot of good points about life and I really liked his writing style, so I figured I would give Models a go as well.
In the first three-quarters of the book, he gives quite reasonable advice, even though some of them are a little strange, but they do make sense. For s ...more
It did make me want to become more proactive in life and become more confident, but the premise of the book is basically to become good at approaching women through repeated practice. I have no intention of randomly picking up just any girl andor sleeping around, especially in a small community.
It says nothing about developing and maintaining actual relationships beyond the initial contact part (well, technically I shoulda known that from th ...more
Before Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, I finished reading The Manual: What Women Want and How to Give It to Them and gave it a 5-star review. It probably increased my expectation of what a brilliant seduction book should be, and it is definitely for the best. I am much past the whole n ...more

The first half of the book, which is mostly theoretical, is full of gems. Manson encourages radical authenticity, and criticizes the "typical dating advice books" for trying to teach guys how to "perform." Great so far.
Then, Manson literally goes on to do just that. The 2nd half of the book is full of practical advice including specific regiments for things like how to dress to impress, how to approach, how to be funny, how to mak ...more
He mentions 'TRUE confidence' which involves caring less about what people think of you, than YOUR opinion of yourself. FALSE confidence, on the other hand, stems from being unconfident and highly invested in what others think of you.
"To develop true confidence, a man must develop self-respect, a healthy sens ...more
