Publisher's 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...

My favourite book on attraction

I recommend reading this one last, it clears any left contradictions from the other books (the game, 3 percent man, no more Mr. nice guy, etc. ) I do recommend reading all of those for the following reason : it’s not about a strategy, it’s about who you are, and profound change happens when you profoundly shift mindsets! We all have scepticism about the claims of those books ... from experience they work

Turning the Focus Inward

This is a great book which I had read partially in the past, but I’m happy to have completed it in its entirety now. The world of dating is Darwinian and its easy to get left in the dust, but bu turning attention inward and developing oneself and one’s lifestyle, there is salvation for all men. Manson really fosters this idea well and his examples speak to a deep, experiential knowledge which anticipates common excuses and rationalizations.
This is the kind of book I will listen to repeatedly when I need to resharpen my focus.

best honest book read period.

You will learn how to be more masculine and attract women the honest way by improving your self. Most dating books are all the same but this one looks at the men responsible for getting women with masculinity not game you will evenually forget.

Hollow and Lacks Content

As someone who personally knows Mystery and some of the other "Structured" game gurus I find this book to be lacking in substance (versus other PUA / dating books). But then again, I've never been a big fan of the "natural" fad in the PUA community. But that's just my two cents.....at the end of the day if this book helps you then go for it mate! Results are all that matter at the end of the day!

Good book, narration was just OK

This is Mark Manson's attempt to narrate his own book. While he does a competent job, he is not a very stimulating reader and he makes the odd slip-up. Great content though.

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.

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!

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.

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-.

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.

Buy the book. This is so hard to listen to. He stumbles over words over and over.

Just what I needed

I thought it was going to be a sleazy pick-up book. It turned out to be a long journey into self-discovery that I needed many years ago.

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

Amateurish recording

Maybe I should have paid more attention to reviews telling that the author keeps on criticizing players and pickup artists. This is really a boring part of the content. Moreover this audible version is really recorded amateurishly, with difference of sound quality and sometimes echo in the different chapters. This book also falls in the trap of repeating over and over its goal, instead of getting to the point. As if repeating that this method is the best would suddenly make it true. Honestly I fell out of the book and didn't finish it, because all these little defects were overpowering the content. Maybe with a professional recording and some editing of the text to remove comparisons to others methods it could have been good, but as is, it is just plain boring.

Well written book, not bad narration

The book is undeniably good but narration was somewhat monitonous and not as expressive with some reported speech. Then again it did manage to make me smile or giggle at times with pretty well calculated tones so i wouldn't say it's bad. Just could'vebeen better
