THE PICK UP ARTISTS IN these books have all turned their lives around
They all started off as nervous, timid and socially awkward guys who couldn’t even get a date…
Now they are dating superheroes
Many of them were spurred on, learning from guys who had come before them…
Now they are the ones giving advice. Helping guys like you by revealing what works for them, as well as stories from their experiences
Here are the top 10 pick up books I found and have read. They are in no particular order and offer something a little different…
Tao of Badass – Joshua Pellicer
This is more of an encyclopedia than a book. There is plenty of content to go through and the level of detail is very thorough.
Not only are there details on what to say/do etc, but also plenty of ‘inner game’ stuff, stories about what to do (and what not to do), unique concepts and the typical tips and techniques.
The Tao of Badass isn’t just a book. It includes videos, audio and plenty of bonuses which why it costs a little more than the other options on this list.
The Mystery Method: How to Get Beautiful Women Into Bed – Mystery (aka Eric Von Markovik)
Mystery is really a geek when it comes to meeting women…
The part of ‘getting laid’ that most guys think is by chance, he has been turned into a Science
In his book, he goes into minute detail and spells out the rules of how to meet women for you
Although this book isn’t going to solve all the challenges you face, after reading it you can expect that your odds will improve
The best thing about what Mystery has done is that he has done it a lot, and in this book, he gives away some of his ‘rules of thumb’. Including:
- How long it takes to go from meeting to sleeping with a woman (on average)
- How long you should wait before you make your approach
- The best way to bypass her ‘buyers remorse’ trigger
Some of the books is a little outdated, but the ideas, message and Mystery’s rules of thumb are still relevant. And because of this, it’s worth a read, especially for those who haven’t read many (or any) pick up books before
The Mystery Method is very structured and the book will give readers a complete view (and timeline) of those important first few hours when meeting a woman

The Way of the Superior Man – David Deida
David Deida isn’t a pick up artist. But this book has been handed down by pick up artists for as long as I can remember
It’s all about dealing with the stresses and challenges that come from work, women and sexual desire
This isn’t simply woo-woo nonsense, although the reasons why may not be clear to readers
It’s centered around male spirituality, but there are also practical aspects that men can follow
However, the book is typically written in that meta kind of way that spiritual books are typically written in. Topics include*:
- Live with an open heart even when it hurts
- Don’t force the feminine to make decisions
- Live as if your father were dead
- What she wants is not what she says
If you need to focus on your ‘inner-game’ (the reasons why you act as you do) then this is the book for you.
Well worth the read, there is a lot of wisdom in this book

Unlock Her Legs – Bobby Rio (& Rob Judge)
Unlike the other books on this page, unlock her legs deals with the question…
‘There’s this one girl, how do I get her?’
Whether you have been relegated to the ‘friend zone’, your relationship went a little sour or she doesn’t even really know who you are (be honest here) then this book is for you
It covers how to change her perception of you, then how to turn her from just a friend into something more.
As far as how the book reads, Bobby talks like a typical New Yorker. Crude and straight to the point. There are stories to illustrate points but it’s mostly a ‘what to do and how to do it’ type book.
If you haven’t read any other pick up books, you will be surprised by the level of detail that Bobby Rio and Rob Judge (co-author) have in this area.
Unlock her legs comes with audiobook and plenty of bonuses reports. (see image)

Magnetic Messaging – Bobby Rio (& Rob Judge)
Although some will promise it, there is no such thing as a magical set of words that will get her to fall in love with you…
But what there is, is a way of communicating with a woman that demonstrates to her that you are a confident, smart and attractive..
Which she won’t be able to resist
This book helps you by showing you what confident, smart and attractive guys are saying to girls.. that is working
It reveals many of the exact lines that Bobby and Rob use themselves to meet and escalate romance with women that they meet.
Although it is a little dated, the principles and texts still work just as well today
When I was new to meeting women, using text messages I ‘borrowed’ from other guys was one of the best learning experiences.
It gave me more motivation, which then only made it a matter of time before I could meet and attract women when I wanted.

Attract Hotter Women – Brent Smith
Brent Smith is kind of the odd one out when it comes to this list.
He’s not your typical guy who learned a lot about meeting women. And he’s not going to teach you about meeting women in the street or at the local nightclub.
He’s a playboy.
The old-school type. World travelling, Tuxedo wearing, Celebrity mingling … and he only ever dates ’10s’.
As you can tell by the name of his book, he has refined taste when it comes to everything, including women
This book is another ‘what to do, how to do’ type book that covers the topic of meeting higher value women (which are also typically better looking)
It includes areas around increasing your social status and how to generate a vibe that will attract beautiful women to you

Hooked! Proven secrets that make women addicted to being with you – Tripp Kramer
Tripp is a pretty regular guy. Originally from the Midwest, this book is the result of his journey to meeting women and socializing in his new city (Los Angeles).
The breakthrough in this book is that you don’t need to be an alpha male or someone you’re not to have the dating life you want.
In some ways the book has more regular, ‘what-you-would-expect’ advice. Tips on how you dress, what to say to keep the interaction moving along, body language stuff etc.
Tripp also harnesses the power of NLP to help build deeper connections with women. And covers more specific topics like how to arrange your living space to make women feel more comfortable there.
Good for guys who want to keep it simple, and use less of the ‘hacks and tricks’.

The Game – Neil Strauss
This is the classic tale of a guy who has entered the world of the pickup artists by befriending one of the most prominent at the time (Mystery).
Although this book is a little dated now, it shows a behind the scenes view of the world of the pick up artist. Including information on some of the big names.
This book isn’t about giving you tips or what to say etc. The lesson this book taught me was that ‘pick up’ is about is about becoming a better man, and essentially outgrowing ‘pick up’.
It’s worth a read. You can get your copy of THE GAME here
The Dating Playbook for Men – Andrew Ferebee
Like many, Andrew Ferebee has read and tried many different tactics and techniques when it comes to meeting women
And after letting it all simmer in his brain, the most important thing to him isn’t tips, routines or strategies… it’s being a grounded male
This book is about what’s inside you. And how to bring that when you’re out meeting women
On the con side, it is a little sales-y where the author plugs his programs at the end of the chapter
But despite this, it’s worth a read. It will help keep you grounded and it sets the tone for what is important when you meet a woman

Sperm Wars – Robin Baker
Like David Deida, Robin Baker is not a pick up artist. But this book has done the rounds as well. It’s a real eye-opener when it comes to the science of sex
In fact, I’d even go so far as to say that unless you read this book, you don’t really understand the mechanics of sex
And by understanding the mechanics, you will understand more of the things that happen in interactions between you and the women you’re interested in
Because at the end of the day, sex is what it’s all about
For example, if you have ever wondered why a girl chases one particular guy but runs away from others then the answer is in this book
If you’re wondering if you can read and understand a science book (some of them are quite hard) this one is not all dry facts, big words and statistics.
Each chapter starts with a story, then an explanation. To be honest it is written well enough that an average reader will have no trouble understanding (I had no trouble)

Thanks for reading…
If you haven’t read a book about pick up before, then I can confidently say that these books will change your life
Just like the pick up artists who wrote them, they can open a door to what feels like another world
They changed my life (for the better) and now I don’t know where I would be without them. I hope they have the same positive influence on your life too.
