The Game: Undercover in the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
Author: Strauss Neil
Journalist and music critic Neil Strauss was no player. By his own assessment he's far from attractive: no confidence, no partner, no patter. He's far more comfortable with a good book and a decent conversation than with a chat-up line.
But a chance encounter introduces him to the seduction community – a secret society committed to chasing, and catching, women. Through internet newsgroups and workshops, he enters a world of bizarre characters, a secret society of eccentric bachelors and arrested adolescents to whom the opposite sex is little more than prey. Men with their own codes of honour who believe it is possible to pick up women through a prescribed set of rules and techniques – The Game. In no time Neil Strauss, average frustrated chump, is no more. In his place is Style; pick-up artist extraordinaire.
