“One of the most admired men in the world of seduction” (The New York Times) teaches average guys how to approach, attract and begin intimate relationships with beautiful women
 
For every man who always wondered why some guys have all the luck, Mystery, considered by many to be the worlds greatest pickup artist, finally reveals his secrets for finding and forming relationships with some of the worlds most beautiful women. Mystery gained mainstream attention for his role in Neil Strausss New York Times bestselling exposé, The Game. Now he has written the definitive handbook on the art of the pickup.
 
He developed his unique method over years of observing social dynamics and interacting with women in clubs to learn how to overcome the guard shield that many women use to deflect come-ons from "average frustrated chumps."

The Mystery Method: How to Get Beautiful Women Into Bed shares tips such as:

*Give more attention to her less attractive friend at first, so your target will get jealous and try to win your attention.

*Always approach a target within 3 seconds of noticing her. If a woman senses your hesitation, her perception of your value will be lower.

*Don't be picky. Approach as many groups of people in a bar as you can and entertain them with fun conversation. As you move about the room, positive perception of you will grow. Now it's easy to meet anyone you want.

*Smile. Guys who don't get laid, don't smile.

Review:

"Never at risk of being called humble, Mystery (aka Erik von Markovik), heralded as one of the best pick-up artists in the country, has created a science of seduction. His meticulously researched system, the 'Mystery Method,' offers advice to men of every ilk, along with complex charts, social science jargon (e.g., Dynamic Social Homostasis and DHV — Demonstrations of Higher Value) and potty humor Mystery comes off as forceful, provocative and excessively arrogant, but one thing is clear: he's good at what he does. You'll laugh, you'll scoff, but in the end, you'll probably learn something." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

I'd like to add a couple things to my previous comment. First, I don't know what the heck the reviewer meant by "potty humor." I don't care for that myself and I think I would remember if I'd seen any in the book. Second, Mystery's sometimes arrogant tone should perhaps be considered in light of the fact that his first profession -- by which he still identifies himself -- is as a magician. Self-aggrandizement sort of comes with the territory there.

Eric Hamell, January 25, 2009 (view all comments by Eric Hamell)
Very interesting and fairly persuasive. I read it only after noticing that credentialed scientists such as Helen Fisher were vouching for its having some validity. While he may come off as a little arrogant at times, he puts it all in the framework of principles of social psychology and evolutionary theory with which I was already familiar, giving me a good deal of confidence in its utility.
