    The decline of the modern British novel is little to do with what is written and far more with what gets past the censors. This book is part of a long tradition, and worthy to be compared with classics of its genre. It recalls works like J P Donleavy’s The Ginger Man and the novels of Henry Miller, men of earlier generations also much concerned with getting laid. Another comparison that comes to mind is with Luke Reinhart’s The Dice Man, what appears to be an amusing even satirical novel, but which like Bodi’s may be more disturbingly understood as a slice of autobiography, even if embellished. Any man is partly the product of his era, each of which is unique. Ours is that of aggressive feminism with all the strident force of morality behind it. As literature this book is an act of resistance, well written, enlightening and very funny. Rebelling against the conventional morality of their own day, Miller and Donleavy are strongly life affirming. You might think this story is too till... More > you get to the final chapters which are much darker. Here men are classified as alpha, beta or gamma or worse. The object of the pua is to turn himself into an alpha male. Politically puas lean to the right. In his bibliography at the end Bodi recommends books by Ayn Rand, Theodore Dalrymple and Richard Dawkins, which does spoil the effect a bit. As an active pua living in a house with other puas, Bodi indeed accumulates a great fund of knowledge about female psychology. Such learning is fascinating, and the danger is that it could usurp other interests. Much intensity is diverted from more ordinary concerns. After four years Bodi, as T S Eliot says of Sweeney, “knows the female temperament”. For a poet like Eliot sublimation of the sexual instinct created new pathways for contemplative enjoyment. Life brought frustration, failure and regret for which there is compensation. Art is produced which is source of much pleasure for others. Seen through a lens of male fantasy, it can seem Bodi has arrived at the perfect solution to sexual angst. Reading to the end and discovering that he has not offers some encouragement to his readers. You end up not feeling so bad about yourself. This self published book deserves to be promoted as representative literature of our times.< Less

    Another hugely entertaining book and story about what happens when a man who is unsatisfied with his romantic options (or lack thereof) decides to take systematic action. I found this book a lot more cheerful than the last one as the author does succeed in getting his end away several times. These are actually really tense stories as if they were to slip through the fingers of the author... well it could be "a long time between drinks". It made me appreciate how easy I had things, where bollacking up dates or chatting up girls on nights out was something to laugh about. If you reduce your chances a bit dating/picking up becomes a nerve racking experience. Makes me haunted about my own future as we all get uglier and less cool as we age unfortunately. I don't know if it was just me projecting, but the author seems to have a lot more fun in this book than the last one too. Anyway this book is definitely worth reading for any male who is looking for a realistic view of what a... More > serious attempt at improving their love life looks like.< Less

    A very unusual, well written and entertaining book. And very funny. Obviously a lot of thought went into the writing and the graphics and John Bodi deserves the accolades. The book is almost Bournesque in the way Bodi and his hang flit from European cities week in week out. Fascinating to think this is all going on while I was working in my office cubicle. I really should get out more. I really didn't want to finish it as soon as I did and I will now buy and read the first book.

    If, you have any interest in game, women, red-pill/blue-pill, or life then buy this book!! I've read most of the other ones, and this is probably the best. No point in mentioning the juicy details, but if you have read part 1, then what are you waiting for?
