Neil Strauss is an author/journalist/ghostwriter and probably best known for his work in The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists. Strauss reports his journey to the seduction community to become a pick-up artist. He also narrates his success with women,the spreading of the seduction community itself and his life at "Project Hollywood", a high end mansion and a lifestyle plan shared by Strauss, Mystery and other members of the Seduction community. I believe there is 'lesson' of sorts at the end of the book that makes the entire thing kind of cute; however, for the most part lets face it- who wouldn't want to learn how to effectively pick up babes? Exactly. Strauss is also a contributing editor at Rolling Stone, and writes regularly for The New York Times- nothing to scoff at. Anyway, a good friend of mine showed me this quote after he read the book (again, babes, who wouldn't?). I kind of love it so I thought I would share. "Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall into your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get it. This isn't because the universe is cruel. It's because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don't appreciate things the fall into our laps." I think it would make for a good "The Way I See It," m.
