I started with books by Logan Edwards (The A Game), which sounded GREAT on paper, but somehow didn't get me "feeling" the concepts, just thinking, "oh yeah, this is how I SHOULD feel." Moved on to The Mystery Method, but I don't like memorizing routines, although it did give me more important information on evolutionary psychology, how value differential worked, etc. Yet, I STILL found myself placating, being overly nice, speaking too fast "in field," and BOMBING with women.
MASTERY REVIEW This DVD course, far from being "outdated" as others suggest, strikes me as absolutely timeless.
So I'm starting to think that I could charge a thousand dollars for a seminar. Then, I'll just tell them about my favorite books, which ones changed my life, and I'll actually lead them through some exercises from Anthony de Mello's books. Even though I said all the above, the material is good (though second-hand knowledge).
There's a lot to digest, a lot of contradictory advice, and there's not much of a theme tying everything together (which is I guess to be expected from a program called "Mastery").
My program of sobriety stresses service and lack of resentment, which have served me very well in having a wonderful, productive life, but REALLY hurt my ability to interact with women.
I desperately needed a way to redraw my boundaries with people (women especially, obviously) in a way that was true to myself, true to my ideals, and yet didn't leave me hopelessly wussed-out. (Magic Bullets, which I've just started, is also quite, quite good.) Got the Mystery "Revelation" DVD / CD set, which gave me a bunch more attitude tips and helped reinforce many of the concept in The Mystery Method.
David De Angelo might have a few insights of his own (which he observed in naturals), but he mostly seems to just read from other books. I think David De Angelo was trying to synthesize all the little insights into an organic whole. Oh, and here's something I really hate about this program.
This product covers *everything* related to pick up and beyond: tactics,re-framing, push-pull, routines, Jungian psychology, Myers Briggs psychology, inner game and an excellent range of guest speakers like Mystery, Tyler Durden, David X, Swinggcat, Orion and Hypnotica.
You will get so much value from this and it can be quite humorous and entertaining in parts too!
Success with women is more like success with learning to play amusical instrument. But if you keep at it, eventually you'll be playing songs.
"Mastery" was a DVD set on dating skills released in 2004 by David De Angelo of Double Your Dating.
