"I want to tell you that you're probably one of the few people who really got "it" figured out. I'm only half-way through your book, and it's unbelievable how everything is making so much sense to me. Everytime I read something in your book I can relate it to some encounter I had with a girl, I now understand why I succeeded at times and failed at another. Especially the part about vulnerability. Even if I did not read the rest of the book, I already got what I paid for. Thank you Mark."
"I just finished your book today, "Models," and wanted to tell you that your presentation of the subject is far to superior to anything else I've read.
I've been involved with seduction since 2006 and I've consumed a lot dating products. Many try to make their readers into "pickup artists" - today I gag at the term.
But you don't do that. I like how spend so much time in the book reinforcing the fact that we are good human beings at our core and it's a matter of presenting ourselves honestly, without apology to everyone we encounter. And you give the reader the tools to strip away all the disguises that other seduction gurus have said we need to wear at all times.
Thanks. Can't wait to meet women today with these new eyes."

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Love the non-needy idea and the way in which vulnerability is the key path to it. My best connections have been through exposing myself to attack and taking the risk.
Great work. Will reread.

However, buying a book to learn how to become better with women is also needy. Mark Manson is advocating a radical change to your way of life in order to get with women, although like all PUA coaches, he claims that his program of change is different, because it involves more noble concepts like honesty and vulnerability. But the question remains to me: what's wrong with me now? There is a cruelty in all such books in that they imply that men aren't good enough as they are and that they need to become incredibly psychologically literate and aware of their every last thought and action in order to attract women. It isn't true. Men have been attracting women just by being born men for millenia.
Let's look at Mark Manson's description of Jeff, his example of a non-needy man:
"Jeff has been successful with women for his entire life and has a very low level of investment with them until he's gotten to know them well. Jeff enjoys going out with his friends and pays no attention to whether the women around him approve of him or not. At times, he says something weird or gets rejected but it doesn't bother him. But other times, girls become quite attracted to Jeff. When Jeff notices, if he finds them attractive, he'll take their number and ask them out..."
I don't find this realistic as an ideal, or necessarily desirable. While I completely accept that neediness is the greatest turn-off for women (as Manson puts it, "to a woman, a man with a lot of neediness is like having the worst breath and lots of missing teeth"), Jeff sounds like he couldn't care less whether he has a woman in his life or not. While it's bad to be needy, for most men the companionship of a woman is felt as a need, something that can make a real difference in life and the absence of which can be painful. There are also natural biological desires that we have and can't switch off even if we might sometimes want to. It doesn't sound like Jeff has any of these problems. Surely women want a man who feels a strong desire to be with them. How can a man who feels real desire for a woman "pay no attention to whether the woman around approve of him or not"? This isn't realistic for anyone. No one pays no attention to whether others approve, in fact it would be foolish to do so, as others can give us feedback on ourselves from angles we wouldn't have seen.
Also, as with all PUA books, there is an implication that no factors matter in attractiveness other than those that you can change through training and greater psychological awareness. Your looks, your height, your physique, crucially of course your bank balance, your career and social circle. Manson speaks as if Jeff is only attractive to women because he isn't needy, as if none of these other factors matter, as if an ugly man or a handsome man, a poor man or a rich man, could train themselves in this non-neediness and see equal results. This rather erases a man's individual attributes. We know nothing about this Jeff character and why women might be attracted to him. Presumably he has some attractive traits that he was born with, other than not being needy. Surely some men aren't attractive to women for reasons other than neediness. When speaking of women finding neediness as unattractive as missing teeth and bad breath, he doesn't really emphasise the fact that woman are also turned off by missing teeth and bad breath. In fact the reality is that there is nothing about a man that women don't take into account when considering his attractiveness. Non-neediness may be the top unattractive quality that you're able to do something about, but she may find you unattractive for others reasons that you couldn't have predicted. That's how it is with women. You can never fully pin down how they will react to you or why. That's where books like this will always fall down.
After 1,5 years I decided to give a last chance and try this “Models” that a lot of guys talk about. But I was skeptical because I tought it was too 'soft'.
I was wrong.
After a few pages I knew this was the true answer to what I really needed: become attractive and understand women very well without changing yourself completly. I got much more than that.
Mark Mason doesn’t write simple theories like everybody else. Everything he writes has a lot of cientifical research and his own experience. That is why this is a revolution in seduction knowledge — remember, I had been read dating advice from hundreds of professional "players" every day for 1,5 years, I kept reading because I felt that everything I read was unhealthy theories based on their bad experiences and beliefs about women, only to find out what I already suspected deep down: they are all f*ck*d up in their heads.
My advice to every guy who wants to become attractive and learn how to be good with the ladies: buy this book and read it several times. You'll never need to read anything more ever again. Get rid of all Red Pill stuff you have. This is the complete guide, gives you the true attractiveness and seductive knowledge without any "fake it until you make it" or tricks and tactics. No more boy games, this is for real men who have courage to be honest and straight foward.
And the most important thing: you won't be a mentally ill women-hater.
You will learn to trully admire and understand women for what they are instead of seeing them as labeled objects who are meant to be exploited.
Remember guys, women are a very important part of our lives, so it is important learn this right.
I am very lucky to have this precious knowledge.
Thank you Mark for all the effort!
But then I realized that by improving myself I could have achieved more, and find what I was actually looking for. I started reading self-improvement books, workout 3-4 times a week and be more social. I started working on myself, rather than showing neediness and pleasing others.
You know it is time to leave, when your gut and instincts tell you so. Get out, work on your goals, and on that path of self improvement you will find what you are looking for. It is just a matter of time.
