Summary

Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing them. It's the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. A game-changer. Inside, you'll learn:

  • The root behavior that causes all female attraction.
  • Why typical dating advice and pick up theory is counter-productive in the long-run.
  • How to overcome nervousness and anxiety around attractive women.
  • How any man can make himself appear attractive with a little time and effort.
  • The three keys to keeping conversations with women interesting and engaging.
  • How to discover the beliefs and attitudes that are sabotaging your success with women.
  • How to develop a genuine and joyful sense of humor.

And much more...

Excellent insightful book marred by the narration

What did you like most about Models?

A truly first class book on understanding what women want. Probably the best I have ever come across.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The error the writer Mark Manson made is in narrating the book himself. Really worthwhile, thought provoking information comes across quite flat. Also there are clicks at the beginning of each chapter where he is turning on the recording machine. The recording quality is poor too.

Superb

Had this recommended by a female friend, listened to it while walking around my city and it really really spoke to me. I feel like an idiot to be thinking this but I feel like it's changed my perception of the world. Before I focussed on bettering myself to make others like me - now I'll do it to give ME a better life, the other things will come naturally. Thank you mr Manson, I'm sure you know you've changed a few lives in your life.

Hire a professional!!!

Such annoyingly cheap amateur production. Content is alright but audible: I paid you to deliver quality but lately you let all the authors read themselves. Be worth your money!!

ESSENTIAL LISTENING! Wish I had this when I was 15

Best book ever about dating at any age. This is the book. Get it and listen! You will thank me if you do, and you will be released from all the dissatisfaction you currently have and set on a road to fulfilment. This thorough book leaves no holes barred and tells you like it is. The author completely nails it. Following the advice in this book will save you countless time, money and angst. This is the definitive manual. I listened to this book over a 10 day period and already I've had results just in this time. I've had a date already with a v attractive lady and I've arranged for 2 more dates with two others. This would not be the case if I hadn't read this book. It gave me the courage, knowledge and strength to make those dates which I never would have done as I'm quite shy and often vague and blocked in being sexual with woman (I don't mean girlfriends, I mean girls I'm attracted to). I thought I wasn't until I listened and then realised how unclear and scared I really was. And that by giving in to my fear and insecurities I wasn't being true to myself at all or going for what I really wanted and this book has given me the balls and reasons to make the shift and follow through. For instance, I literally have turned a gourgeous woman who was a coworker and who I was scared to ask out into a hot date this Weekend just by manning up and expressing my interest in an honest and playful way, where she feels beautiful and desired. I have listened to many podcasts and watched many dating videos over the years, and had many girlfriends, so yes I have experience already and I've slept with over a hundred women, but have been failing miserably recently to have a decent sex life and love life yet in days the nuggets in this book have helped me so much in my understanding of the dynamics of dating and male female relating and I'm already seeing the results. I intend to relisten once a month, so it really goes in. Mark Masons is a hero for all men who have challenges in the dating realms.

Not to detailed, well balanced me/others approach

Rare author in PD not lost with trying to teach how to read others mind, reinventing evolution and redefining communication stuff. My 2nd listening and looking forward to listen in again in couple of months cause future experiences. I especially liked approach on self focus stuff (emotions, expectations).

Intriguing Guide to Women

Provided useful tips and guidance as to how to talk and meet women. At times, a bit American in its view point but otherwise a good listen.

Narration has been updated - it’s great!

I was almost turned away because of the reviews warning against the author’s narration. Looks like he took their advice and hired a pro. Austin does a great job. This is a fantastic book!

its just good!

its like a friend's uncle just kicked knowledge for some hours and it was all stuff that you could relate to and/or understand. its not read as well as "the subtle art of not giving a f" but that also makes it easier to relate to the narrator...who happens to be the author. It wasn't underwhelming at all to me because none of what he said sounded contrived or like something somebody says to just sound like they know it all. Alot of it is just encouragement/reassurance but don't let that stop you, because it might be new to you. Things I've been told before or have come to realize, Mark talks about. But for me that was cool because its like I get to have somebody remind me, that being realistic and doubting myself are NOT the same thing. I hope this helps.

The content is great but the reader is awful

What did you like best about Models? What did you like least?

Models shows a great way for men to think about the world and their relationship with women. It really focuses on improving yourself.

Mark Manson read it himself. It sounds like it was recorded in front of his computer and he left all the misreads and stumbles in. I could hear mouse clicks and I'm pretty sure he got text messages while recording.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Manson’s performances?

No. Absolutely not. It was a 7 hour book recorded in 7 hours and a ton of mistakes left in. The negative listening experience definitely can overshadow the amazing content.

Did Models inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to change the way I thought about my relationships with women.

Any additional comments?

Mark, please have this re-recorded with a pro reader.

Great book for any "Needy" guy in relationships!

Outstanding book Mark, not only have you taught me to be more self aware of how I interact with women, but your book has educated me to in-power my me by improving my self image! My existing girl friend had notice positive changes immediately once I started reading your book!

Thank you Mark, I really appreciate your outstanding knowledge specifically when it comes to understanding the opposite sex!

I like that he had trouble narrating.

This is a book about fear, growth and building yourself so that the life outside of you is that way that you want. Is about running towards a mixture of failure and success, because that is the only way big successes will come about.

The author's narration was sometimes troubled. He was always easy to understand, but he often sounded like your buddy at a dive bar telling you his discovery about dating.

And that is the point.

He isn't perfect and polished the whole way, because he isn't afraid to screw up. If Simon Vance were narrating this would get an Audie, but probably not change as many lives. As it is, this is the book I needed right now. Not for dating insights or style tips, but a kick in the ass to go pursue the life that I want.

tl;dr: GET THIS BOOK!!

The narration kills all credibility

While I’m not against an author narrating his own book, there are instances like this one when it’s just a bad idea. Not to say that this author could have done at least an adequate job if he had made an effort. Instead, what the listener is brutally subjected to is an unedited, unrehearsed and haphazard attempt at reading the text. It’s reminiscent of a junior high school student fumbling through a presentation of a just finished report, which was copied out of an encyclopedia and never really comprehended. It’s a shame, because the content has value but the delivery completely ruins even the most robust of concepts. All credibility in the material is lost when it’s coming from a source that sells such a weakly produced product. In addition to the lack of editing or proofreading, the author seemed to not even have given it a listen before releasing it for sale. The copyright and legal disclaimer at the beginning is read and for some reason explained before launching into the first section, which begins by repeating the same thing. I feel bad that the author doesn’t have a coach, advisor or even friend that could have told him of that and other mistakes. Or maybe he just doesn’t care. Expecting people to pay for something so poorly rendered is just wrong. I’ve often found that complaints regarding narrators of audiobooks were a bit petty and based mostly on certain style preferences. However, this audiobook is in an entirely new and more severe category of bad productions. I think I’m being a bit generous in giving the content a B+, the writing a C-and the narration a D-.

Best outlook on women yet

I have been bombarded with many perceptions in the red pill community that women are objects and sex is the only thing that matters. After reading this book it opened me to the idea of meaning in relationships with women and being honest with yourself and others to attract the right women.

A rare, insightful take on personal independence.

I've read and reread many well known psychology books on codependency, narcissism and healthy interdependence (aka "good relationships"), and Models for me takes its place as one of the best, how to fix yourself, books I've ever read.

Sure, the premise is about attracting women from a man's perspective, but that's just the hook as this book accurately describes the need for honesty with one's self and honesty with those we interact with and especially with women. In explaining why honesty empowers you and why honesty matters, I found many useful insights into personal independence that parallel many psychology self-help books by PhDs and experts. Take out the chapter on sex and one night stands (not that the author is wrong for including these topics) as they are a bit of a detraction, and you have one of the most practical self-help books I've ever read for needy, and/or codependent "nice guys."

Models is a great book for men in general.

amazing. don't let the voiceing throw you off

perhaps it updated. but the story telling and information is valuable. the vocal is fine- not prefect but it'll get you through.

look at it as a powerful audiotape rather then a book. the exercises are still there
