There is nothing special at all about this book. The magic tricks are EXTREMELY weak. Rehashing of
old pickup lines that you could find on any one of a million websites, and ridiculously ambiguous
body language advice combine to make this book a serious letdown. The editing appears to have been
done by an infant (who doesn't know the difference between the words "lose", and "loose" for
The best part of this book was the laughable endorsement by Chuck
Liddell, and the line, "I may not be the best looking guy here, but I AM the only one talking to you

time or money on this garbage.

I do not think hardcore "magicians" need this type of book except for a few fun ideas, bar bets and
some basic body language. I think any negative reviews are by those thinking a book made for
non-magicians was going to teach them a bunch of new tricks! I could easily tell from the
description that this was certainly made for the mainstream world and not so much working magicians
such as other products like Tagged, This is Mentalism, etc. I wonder if anyone takes the title
serious as I'm pretty sure it's a play on words and not a serious "pick up artist" book. I get his
humor and it's cracks me up! The title COULD have easily been "How to entertain girls & friends at
parties." That just struck me as odd, but more about the book...
I think the book is very
cool and fun. It's a perfect gift for some buddies because I'm certainly not going to give them a
DVD on some crazy tricks that takes tons of skill. These are designed for everyday people and I
appreciate it. The chapters are interesting and of course you could find a lot of this info by
searching on numerous sites but it seems to be the case with anything these days. It's put together
nicely and I think most will really dig it!

The reason I give it three stars is because I haven't got a girl from this book... yet... but if I
do I will give it a five star, but I'll have to get back on that.
It's not a bad book but
it's not a great book. I haven't read the entire book yet but I've read some chapters and it gives
me a pretty good overview of the book itself.
It's not a very big book, and most of the
pick-up lines are pretty "outrageous", like "I'm going outside to make out. care to join me?", still
I haven't tried it and it might work, but it's not really my personality of saying things like that.
The "quickies" are not too impressive tricks. I would recommend some other tricks, like a
color change, to get a girls attention. I haven't read the "one-night stands" yet either.
The bets are actually pretty fun, but if you already know too many bets and scams, well this
probably wouldn't be anything new for you. I've earned some from the bets in the book and soon I've
paid for the book itself. ;)
There's alot in the body-language section, something like 20
pages. Haven't read it all but there's a few points I already was aware of before, but reminded me
as I read.
And I haven't read the rules of the game-section yet, only skimmed it through.
So, to sum it up, the book is fairly ok! If you really want it, you should get it. If
you're a bit skeptic, well, don't get it I suppose.
Go with your gut-feeling!
I had higher expectations...pick up lines are weak and in my opinion very corny...the magic tricks
are elementry school tricks...nothing really exciting for an average magician and I don't know about
the advice to picking up chicks cus I just had to put the book in the shelf. you'll probably get
laughed at and most likely rejected if you follow the lines in this book. However, for $15 the
price of a cocktail I guess it's ok for a TOTAL beginner in magic and PUA skills.
I was sceptical when I first got this. But when I practiced I used the tricks and I got a girl in no
time flat. So if you want learn some good tricks or great ways to get girls buy this book and you
won't regret it.
It's funny how a book like this is purchased to begin with by folks looking "hard hitting" or
"advanced magic. As some of those others have said, this book is killer for NON magicians... who are
obviously the market target if you look at the books online info. That said, there is indeed a lot
for anyone. If high skilled magicians buy this looking for new tricks, there wont be a ton... but
keep in mind it has a lot of material nonetheless. People pay 15 bucks for ONE trick at times. Just
keep it in perspective and quit trashing items that are perfectly fine for what they are. It's like
going to a great sandwich shop and complaining about the food because you do not pizza, which they
also serve. Anyhow, I think it's a fun book for a guys gift. As another said, I'd never get a
non-magician a DVD on magic card manipulation or advanced rope magic, etc...
