I first discovered the genius of Roosh from his blog (www.rooshv.com) which I found from another blog. His sense of humor, Dr. Phil-style straight talk, mixed with personal experience endeared him to me. Then he started talking about his book coming out and I was intrigued. He never really said what it was about until it actually came out.
In his own words, “Bang is the average man’s modern guide to getting laid.” He wrote it because
“I wish I had [this book] when I graduated from college six years ago, one that would have helped me deal with a lack of pick-up experience and the girl wasteland that is working life. I knew the answer was not dating a girl from work, being set up on a date by my mom, or settling for the first girl who gave me attention, and since I was not blessed with a large social circle or generic good looks, I had to work hard and learn through trial and error when it came to approaching girls, talking to them, and moving things to the bedroom.
Right from the start you know this is stuff in which Scott Baio, Bret Michaels, and that out-of-nowhere almost-vampire guy Mystery (The Pickup Artist on VH1) all need in order to:
“College is the highlight of most men’s sex life, but thankfully it hasn’t turned out to be the highlight of mine. In 60,000 words this book details the techniques, concepts, moves, and lines that gets me laid—that has taken
'girls' off the list of problems I have in life. Bang is dedicated to my two little brothers, who will receive a copy and a strong pat on the back when the time is right.”
I love reading Roosh’s blog, I wish I could attend a happy hour with him and the gang and discuss their viewpoints on life. I’d hate to date this guy as you know when it gets serious he’s bailing. But as a friend I’d love to talk to him for hours. (Jeez, sometimes I wish I was a dude.)
- Get more of the elusive twat-twat
- Be more believable as players (obviously even a rock star needs this kind of help)
- Stop prostituting themselves on TV and get back into the game (or, for Mystery, start for the first time)
This book is exactly what it says it is: A dating guide for someone who only wants to shag chicks without commitment. (Thus the title, don’t let its simplicity confuse you like it did for me with the musical
Rent.) Those of you who are looking to live this lifestyle and would like another viewpoint on how to do so, or else need a bit of help being the best player you can be, this book is for you.
The book is broken down into segments to better assist the wannabe players:
- Internal Game - How to get your mind right for the game.
- Early Game - Spotting a chick, walking over, and speaking. (It’s harder than it reads which is why this chapter is the longest.)
- Middle Game - After meeting and the digit exchange, getting the girl to go out with you, and getting her to your place (or vice versa).
- Late Game - How to have sex (no pics, sorry), and how to react afterwards.
- End Game - All the BS that comes with the game and what to accept and what to work on.
Very funny but written like a master scientist trying to find the cure to nerdiness. (BTW, Roosh is a scientist in real life.) For all those out there who want to have more sex without commitment or people like me who don’t but want to know the tricks just for fun, this book is for you.
