    A Reliable Wife, by Robert Goolrick. I belong to a book club and we're having a joint book club meeting with another book club. Today, I picked up the book at the library.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    To see a world in a grain of sand,
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    And eternity in an hour

    The Pickup Artist: The New and Improved Art of Seduction by Mystery. (Erik von Markovik)

    Some gems in this book but not as good as the groundbreaking work of "The Mystery Method: How to get Beautiful Women" (which is more of a culmination of his life's contributions to the pick up game). Nevertheless the gems are not semiprecious rather very valuable if used at the right time and right place (and how many other books get you laid?)

    As far as the craft, Mystery is the best. He is also well adept at explaining his craft in a entertaining and understandable manner. He however is no biographer/autobiographer/story teller that Neil Strauss/Style is (whose book The Game was essentially a biography of Mystery for a couple years). In other words at parts of the Pickup Artist it is as if Mystery attempts to write like Style did in The Game and here the book falls flat on its face and exposes such additional biographical material for what it is; fluff and filler.

    Regardless if you like playing the pick up game and/or if you liked "The Mystery Method: How to get Beautiful Women" then you you will enjoy this book.

    I wanted to give the book an 8 but because the abundance of filler and a fair amount of repetition from his other works give the book a 7.5/10. Nevertheless a must read for the aspiring or aficionado male pickup artist/seducer or social dynamic psych student.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.
