I know nothing about this book, I don’t intend to justify or qualify it, that’s not what this post is about.
However, in the wake of this controversy I’ve seen a lot of anger and shaming directed at the seduction community, which is what I would like to address.
In the beginning, there was Dear Abby – an American institution since the 1950s.
Write in, and get nice, sensible advice on your dating dilemma.
For those who are familiar with pick-up artist literature and the seduction community, the authors chose "classics" from the field to evaluate; by Neil Strauss.
Through their literature review and assessment, Oesch and Miklousic (2012) find considerable evolutionary support for the overall pick-up model of dating.
This book has now been replaced by the 2nd edition - see the review here.
I am working diligently, but have been slowed by some health issues.So, if I am unable to respond to questions, or writing takes a little longer, please don't take it personally.I will continue to write and respond as much as my time and health allow. I get a number of questions from readers about pick-up artists, game, and seduction techniques. Can you really use a technique get "someone to fall in love with you".."go to bed with you"?Today Swinggcat's concepts are embedded in a lot of his peers' products.These techniques are not as relevant for less attractive or less confident women.
