Mediocre book. I personally am not a fan of the layout. Most every chapter begins with an anecdote about a famous seducer in history, then gives a psychological breakdown of how/what to do, with a few sprinkles of weird astrological sounding crap.

There are also quotes in the margins of every page, which I found annoying as they are completely disconnected from the author's own writing. Lots of strange typography, in what I guess, is an appeal to erotic sensory???

This book has a lot of fluff in it. You can learn some tactics, but I don't know if it's worth scavenging through all of the needless exposition. Seduction is a game and you should play it with the energetic fun it requires, this book is not very fun to read.

What I took away:
1) Choose a willing victim
2) Bring forth a person's unconscious desires
3) Alternate hot & cold (always keep them guessing)
