Description"The funniest book I have read this year." Tony Parson's "The Game" recounts the incredible adventures of an everyday man who transforms himself from a shy, awkward writer into the quick-witted, smooth-talking Style, a character irresistible to women. But just when life is better than he could have ever dreamed (he uses his techniques on Britney Spears, receives life coaching from Tom Cruise, moves into a mansion with Courtney Love and is officially voted the World's Number One Pickup Artist) he falls head over heels for a woman who can beat him at his own game.

Neil Strauss - The Game
I bought this book before I even read what it was about, as I just love all of Neil Straus's work. After reading 'The Dirt' 'Marilyn Manson - Long Hard Road Out Of Hell' and 'Everyone Loves You When You're Dead' I knew I was going to enjoy it, and once again Neil has lived up to expectations.
This book is funny, climatic and extremely entertaining. And not to mention it has a lot of tips in there, not that I have tried any of them ;) But anyway, I absolutely loved this book, and I look forward to reading more of Neil's work. by Louisa Katie-Annis Smith
A hilarious modern tale of self-transformation
Strauss' work recounts his life's events as a pick-up artist under his alias "Style."
This modern (supposedly true) tale is an inspiring, often hilarious, account of one man's determination to moult his introverted shell and step into the limelight and excitement of the modern club scene in order to meet and connect with women.
In this book Strauss recalls his experiences being involved with an underground society of pick-up artists over a two year period. Strauss describes his experiences in taking and eventually delivering pick-up workshops, the many men he met worldwide through the community and the relationships he forged with these people and, of course, just some of his experiences with the various women he successfully picked up using the tricks of the game as forged by the community and even himself.
The self-help-ness of this book is disguised in the narrative about Strauss' exploits as a pick-up artist. Make no mistake, it is a novel, with a story serving as metaphor which can be applied to any reader (male or female).
If you're an "average frustrated chump," as defined by the book, then this is worthy reading to see how you too can improve your success rate with relationships, life and picking up. Or if you're simply after an inspirational story about a modern guy who changed his whole life for the better, made many new friends and forged a whole new lifestyle for himself, then this is unmissable reading. by Richard Brandt
