The Game - Neil Strauss

Pretty interesting, especially since I had heard of a few of the main personalities in there before now.

I will upload later, for those who want it.

Well, its going to have to be whenever I get my laptop returned by PC World.

Apparently they are shipping the parts from Shanghai.   :roll:  Either way, I can't see myself getting it back for at least another coupe of weeks.  If you can't wait that long, try the backpages of Bookchan, I think that was where I found it.

read that one too. the dutch translation was HORRIBLE :)

it's a good read, i especially enjoyed the bit where they set up that house and it all blows up because everybody is trying to out-alphamale the others  :lulz:

i had heard of some of the names in the book as well .. only thing i do not understand is why he completely fails to mention maniac_high. all the big names are in there, but maniac isn't even in the acknowledgements. probably some kinda grudge thing perhaps.

Yeah, that house towards the end...well, to be honest, it kind of reminded me of this forum at its worst.

I never heard of Maniac High however.  Mystery, Jefferies and DeAngelo, sure, but not him.  Could be a time thing, Style was only really playing for a couple of years, as far as I can see

someone from tokyo, afaik. he wrote pickupguide.com, which was the first thing i saw of this whole "scene", years and years ago, which was indeed before Style appeared.

Just finished Pratchett's "Small Gods".  Took about 2 days, max.


Damn, I like his writing style.  Will probably pick up another of his this week.

They're a great, fast read - low-key but cerebral and entertaining. I have yet to read any of them and NOT enjoy it. The books ARE addictive, however, so just be aware that now that you've caught the bug it'll run you $7 a pop till you have them all  :mrgreen:
People of the United States! We are Unitarian Jihad! We can strike without warning. Pockets of reasonableness and harmony will appear as if from nowhere! Nice people will run the government again! There will be coffee and cookies in the Gandhi Room after the revolution.

Arguing with a Unitarian Universalist is like mud wrestling a pig. Pretty soon you realize the pig likes it.
