The Pickup Artist: The New and Improved Art of Seduction
The world’s greatest pickup artist is back! After the bestselling exposé The Game pulled back the curtain on Mystery and his culture of professional pickup artists, he became an international phenomenon. Unfortunately, while it’s no secret that Mystery’s ideas are wildly effective, women have started to catch on. They’ve seen the show and heard the routines—so now it’s time for the next level of game! With techniques honed over fifteen years of trial, error, and ultimate triumph, and following his hit VH1 reality series, the celebrated sensei is back with his latest living-large exploits and a new and improved playbook for the twenty-first-century playboy.
As the book begins, Mystery and his crew have withdrawn to their swank Miami mansion to plot their next move. When a new student comes to stay at the house, Mystery draws him deep into the pickup-artist lifestyle and shows him an intimate portrait of the master of seduction. Mystery lays out a complete system of game, and unveils his latest (and fully field-tested) strategies and techniques. The Pickup Artist includes
• a list of all the triggers that create—and destroy—attraction • a new way to approach strangers and start a conversation: microcalibrated openers • Mystery’s most powerful humor technique, the Absurd—so you’ll never run out of things to say again • a full chapter on physical escalation (touching, kissing, “making a move”) • the solution to inner-game issues, for when you’re not confident enough • and much, much more
Whether he’s holding court with eager disciples in South Beach, hanging out with his crew of fellow super-seducers in Las Vegas, or partying it up in the Hollywood Hills, Mystery is never far from where the action is—and never fails to get a piece of it. Now it’s your turn. Read The Pickup Artist and get into the game.
It wasn't useful and Mystery just showed off that he is rich and famous

This book isn't really about teaching you techniques but rather explaining Mystery's lifestyle and expensive tastes (living in a Miami posh $25,000/month home) and he basically brags throughout the whole book about all the cars he has, all his exploits, and how he thinks he is awesome.
He may very well be very awesome, and I'm sure he's a cool guy to be around, but this book is way too watered down, probably contains about 10 pages or so of useful information, and the rest describing Mystery's lavish lifestyle.
I give this book one star because I was looking for a book that would be instructional kind of like his last book, "The Mystery Method" which I found highly informative BUT very difficult to implement. It was just simply way too complicate (but worth the time to digest and memorize/understand).
Maybe this book tries to address the complexity of his last book, but instead it comes out as a dud as it doesn't teach enough.
If I ever see Mystery walking alone in a dark alley I'm going give him a big man-hug. I don't even mind that he's probably over a foot taller than me in his platforms and top-hat so it would be an awkward hug given my head placement. When I accidentally (I was cruising the self-help section looking for vulnerable girls) came across The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists I had no idea what was in store for me the next few years. I've had the absolute time of my life finding myself into situations that even Tucker Max would find surreal and I owe it all to Mystery and Neil Strauss. The past 3 years of my life have been MTV Reality TV worthy with regrets too few to mention.
I felt that I had to give a verbal blowie here because this review is going to hurt me worse than it will hurt Mystery :) I had such such high hopes for this book. The Game was a phenomenal narrative story that... read more
Not for the average Guy

Very disappointed to read this hyped up book, which has nothing new to offer. It is all about the author's self publicity, and what he thinks will work for everyone else. Most of the advice is the same stuff from his previous books, so I am wondering why it's called new and improved. If you have read his previous books then you really have no need to read this one. Save your money and read something, which makes a real difference to your own self-development. You are not Mystery and neither do you have the money and glamour which Mystery does. This book will not give you any information that you already do not know. I regret buying this book and wasting my money.
