Born in 1969, Neil Strauss ( also known as "Style" ) was involved in the pickup artist community during the late 90s and early 2000s. During this time he saw many great transformations in his life, both good and bad, but ultimately ended up leaving these communities and writing his memoirs of those times.
Neil Strauss's experiences in his memoirs, "The Game", are a very insightful look into the over-compensatory mentality of the "perfect man" in american society. As a man reading this, you will start to see places where you might have been shallow. As a woman, you will understand a bit more on where most men are coming from ( not that it's necessarily correct ).
