NOTE: Below is my review of the Tao of Badass program. I purchased the program (see below), went through the material and am providing MY opinion here. This post contains affiliate links. Also note that I use the term program instead of book, eBook, system, etc.
But then as I started to listen to the audio recording… I heard something that gave me some perspective
That the author, Joshua Pellicer, started his life as a ‘pick up artist’ by discovering what he truly wanted
“When I initially started learning this, I was very clear about what I wanted to get out of it: “I want to gain the ability to attract my wife when I finally meet her.” – Joshua Pellicer, Tao of Badass, pg.6
And I think that readers of MeetingMissRight.com can relate to that.
What is the Tao of Badass? – in 3 Sentences
Even though every woman you meet will be a little different, the way women meet men and have sexual relationships follows the same set of steps
The Tao of Badass program covers the steps that men need to follow to take a woman from the first meeting to starting a relationship
It’s a guidebook to helping everyday men understand what women actually want, what they respond to and why they do what they do
The Theory Behind the Tao of Badass (TOB) in 30 Seconds
Early on in the program, the author (Joshua Pellicer) talks about how learning how to attract women is the most important aspect of your life. And I agree.
Because women aren’t all of the same quality. And if you want to have a great relationship with a great woman, then you need to figure out how to give her what she really needs.
The truth is that there aren’t enough great women going around. So they can pick and choose who they want in their life. And they want men who know what they want and can give it to them.
The good news is that as a man, you can ‘plug in’ to the attraction mechanism that is happening in a woman’s brain and use it to create an amazing relationship.
How you do this is covered in the Tao of Badass program, but first lets talk about the author, Joshua Pellicer.
Who is Joshua Pellicer?
Joshua Pellicer is (or was) an expert in what is broadly labeled ‘attraction’. This covers how to meet women and start relationships.
He spent years learning how to meet women ‘in the field’ (on the street, in bars or clubs, etc.) and has also spent years teaching other men how to do the same.
Through his program, you learn a little about him, including that he wasn’t always good with women. And he had to take time out of his life to learn about how women work and what they want.
OPINION: The impression that I get (from reading the program and doing some research) is that the Tao of Badass was put together at the height of Joshua’s ‘pick up artist’ career. And that he no longer teaches this information.
The Tao of Badass is everything he learned, passed onto the next generation of guys who want to meet their wife.

Who the Tao of Badass (TOB) is for:
- Guys who are new to information around meeting women
- Trying to find the information you need online can be confusing which costs you time and effort. Programs like TOB help organize and prioritize the information.
- Guys who want a different perspective on meeting women
- Joshua has some in-depth ideas that don’t’ get talked about by others in the space.
- Guys who need to make a commitment to getting this area of their life ‘handled’
- If you have been lurking on forums but haven’t invested in a program or course yet, then this is a good one to start.
Who TOB is NOT for:
- This is not a guide to be a player.
- In fact, Joshua has added a chapter about why being a player is detrimental to meeting your future wife (players aren’t honest with the women they are in relationships with)
- It’s not a ‘get laid fast’ type program.
- I’m sure people have different results, some may get great results after a week. However, most will need to work through the program which might take a couple of months depending.
What You Can Expect Out of TOB:

3 Pros and Cons of the Tao of Badass
1. This program covers A LOT
From inner game to techniques that help build rapport and ‘how love works’… This program goes through the gamut of experiences when meeting women and building relationships are concerned.
If you are having a problem with something or get stuck, the answer lies in the pages (or videos) in this program. There is something for everyone.
Whether you are just starting out and not yet approaching women, or you are starting to meet women buy can’t seem to hook them regularly, or you can’t seem to have a meaningful relationship.
You will get something out of this book, and it will be good content
2. In depth, relevant information (in particular the bonuses)
Joshua Pellicer knows his stuff. The program is filled with info, and it’s not the regular stuff you’re going to read on a blog or forum.
The bonuses in this program are a further great source of information. They are in-depth and there is information here that you won’t really find anywhere else.
Joshua takes the time to explain things in detail such as: ‘why meeting women is different during the daytime, rather than at night’.
I’ve heard a few ‘guru’s’ talk about what the difference is, and I don’t actually think they know. Josh does.
There are videos that go for up to 90 minutes on specific topics like Touch First Impressions and Negative Body Language.
This gives even more content and substance to the program and helps justify the price. Make sure you set aside some time to watch them
Joshua Pellicer is relatable and knowledgeable
Even if you have some experience with meeting women and ‘attraction’, you will learn something here. At the very least get a different perspective and insight into a few areas:
I.e. how to use your body language, or the different stages in a relationship, etc.
And as in the video on his website, Josh is a very open guy. He doesn’t hold things back, he tells embarrassing stories about himself. So it makes the program easier to follow and relate to.
And it can be these last little nuggets of information and tweaks that make all the difference
A little self help-y
There are some elements of this program that are a bit self help-y. There is a section on trying to read a person’s eyes. As in the direction that they look reveals an insight into what they are thinking about.
In this case, the description is a little sketchy, and I very much doubt that someone reading a book like this will ever follow through on becoming a master at this. Because it’s not that relevant.
(In my experience, trying to know everything about and second-guess someone doesn’t work anyway)
Although there is plenty of practical things to do, there is a spattering of self help like this so consider yourself warned if you do buy.
The auto sign up for … i’m not sure
When I bought the program I was signed up for some ongoing forum. But I got an email saying that the forum was closed, and there was a new one. So I’m not sure what i was automatically signed up for.
When I emailed help (support was quite fast and helpful) they cleared things up for me and discontinued my subscription. The subscription is the same price as the program every month, so it’s not cheap.
I would of liked to have had a look at it. It is referred to in the program.
NOTE: The parts that are referred to in the program, are now in the members portal.
The formatting of the book is… not how I would have done it
If you want to find something, it can be a little difficult.
There aren’t any subheadings, bullet points aren’t highlighted, and everything kind of looks the same. There’s also no pictures for those like me who like a picture (even if it is a stock one)
It does make going back and finding that one thing you wanted to know quite difficult.
My Tao of Badass Review (Overall Opinion):
Although this program is a little dated, the information in it is very good and still relevant today. It’s also not common information that you’d read on every type of blog, forum or ‘help video’.
It’s easy to see that this system has been put together through Joshua’s experience.
Although some things I read in research for this review didn’t show Joshua in a positive light (he’s a scam artist, his stuff doesn’t work, etc.) I personally, i like that fact that he is a ‘realist’ and is a real person throughout his program.
And being someone who met his wife in a bar using techniques like these I can tell you that yes, they do work.
Another thing to note is that this program is simple to follow, but depending on where you are coming from it isn’t necessarily going to be easy.
Although programs like the Tao of Badass do make easier.
Should You the Buy Tao of Badass?
The Tao of Badass will give you plenty of new knowledge on the subject as well as the inspiration and motivation to go out and start auditioning girls for the role of your wife.
This guide is a great starting place for any man looking to meet Miss Right. As well as a different perspective for those who are a little more advanced on how to meet and meet the woman of your dreams and date your future wife.
I recommend it to you (although you will probably want to cancel the forum membership)
