Billed as the best pick up artist in the world, I found his materials interesting and very similar to Mystery’s materials. (He was a student of Mystery) However, again it falls short of a fuller understanding of women that both Mr. L. Rx and Deangelo have.
However, I think his techniques are very good for a certain type of women which you mainly find in bars and clubs. Both Neil and Mystery are more for guys who are interested in being Pick Up Artists.
Taken on their own, I would not recommend them for the average guy. The techniques that are given here, definitely work, but they only work on a narrow band of what I would label shallow women.
And when you use the techniques on their own (without the more sophisticated understanding of women put forth in “Dating To Relating” and “Double Your Dating”), you yourself become rather shallow. And a lot of guys won’t be able to (or won’t want to)
use the techniques for that reason.
Now, there is not anything at all wrong with being shallow, as sometimes you just want to get laid. But sometimes you want more than that. You are NOT going to get the MORE part from these techniques (unless you just derive it on your own from the sheer volume of experience.)
But Mr. L. Rx. also tells you many more techniques. Mr. L. Rx shows you how to pick up the other 80% of women in clubs and the other 90% of women in life that these techniques won’t work on. He tells you how to get a “real” relationship and how to pick up “real” (non-shallow) women.
Neil Strauss’s techniques are very powerful and work, but the end product is you might not like the kind of girls you get as a result of this, and you might not like who you are being as you do this.
Plus a major drawback is that a lot of the games techniques are just memorized lines and routines. Even Neil Strauss has admitted that “The Game is changing.” So many guys have learned his and Mystery’s pick up lines and routines that women have heard them before and recognize them and men are getting busted for using them.
So why then am I also recommending Mystery/Neil Strauss?
The value of Neil Strauss’s book “The Game” is that it gives you a very interesting sort of historical application of the techniques to think with. Again, this can be very useful.
Neil has also evolved Mystery’s techniques on his own and will give you a slightly different but similar perspective on things and has his own website and workshops in addition to his book “The Game.”
So, if you are the kind of guy like me who is very interested in being very skilled at this “meeting women” stuff, then I would say these materials (The Mystery Method and “The Game”) are also a MUST for your library in addition to “Dating To Relating” and “Double Your Dating.”
Both Neil and Mystery are more for guys who are interested in being Pick Up Artists. However, Mr. L. Rx gives more and broader methods to pick up women, and he has a new writer on his site, Mr. P. L. Ayer, who is a PUA and has reportedly had sex with over 2000 women before he was 30 and never got caught playing or cheating on women. I don’t know if any of the so called Pick Up Artists like Neil can boast of statistics like that. Style Life Academy, however, is kind of a cool program. You might want to check that out, but again I would recommend supplementing the Style Life training with Mr. L. Rx and Deangelo’s basic books.
So final evaluation, if you are rich and/or obsessive like me, get Neil’s materials in addition to Dating To Relating” and “Double Your Dating” and “The Mystery Method” but don’t bother getting them as your main training system. They probably won’t work for most guys.
