You Can Become Irresistibly Attractive To Women Without Changing Who You Are. Here’s How…
Models is a book on becoming an attractive man based not on tricks, tactics, games or techniques, but on self-development.
Its truths are backed by decades of psychological research.
Its focus is on the emotional process of seduction rather than agonizing over logical steps.
Its goal is to create powerful connections with women instead of trying to impress 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.
Stop acting like an attractive man and BE an attractive man.

“Having been a regular reader of Mark’s blog for some time, I wasn’t sure that he had much left to write about dating and women. So I was more than pleasantly surprised to discover that Models goes well beyond what he discusses on his blog.
It’s as comprehensive a guide as you could ask for on the practicalities, covering from when (and how) you first meet a woman, all the way to when you get in a relationship (whatever nature it may be). In my mind though, the most important aspect of this book is the mindsets and attitudes he advocates. Honestly expressing yourself in an attractive way, truly understanding and connecting with women, and setting up your dating life to make you as happy as possible are all central to this book’s philosophy. What Mark understands is that meaningful encounters and relationships, from a one night stand to a lifelong partnership, are best achieved by seeing male to female relations as mutually beneficial. In his eyes, dating is a game to be played by men and women who want to give each other amazing and fulfilling experiences, as well achieving this themselves.
I honestly don’t know how a man could read this book and not improve his life in some way from it. Models is, without a doubt in my mind, a necessity for the modern man.”
“You know, I don’t feel like I gave your book due justice by just saying it was an excellent read. I’d like you to know that I absolutely love it. I haven’t read anything on game for awhile, but as soon as my friend told me about this book by a guy named Mark Manson, I knew I had to pick it up because I’ve always viewed you as a perceptive, articulate guy.”

“Spending $30 bucks on your ebook was definitely something that I was well worth it (and in my mind it was just spending $30 on any other book anyhow). The insight you have, not just about women but life in general is amazing.”
“Hey Mark, I just wanted to personally thank you and tell you that I really enjoyed your book Models. It had quite a lot of insight. I especially loved your framework of defining a “new masculinity”. It really resonated with me because it reaffirmed much of my experience with men whos characteristics I really look up to.”

I hope all is well on your end and that life in Columbia is treating you well. I’m writing to you as a former student; we came across each other last year. My name is Andrew, and I’m not sure how well you remember me (I know you have had several hundreds of clients during your time as a coach), but I’m one of the guys you coached last year around May (2011) in Prague during your time in Europe. Actually, the night we went out there were two of us (students), myself and my friend Dave.
Last week I was out with a friend of mine at a bar, and I happened to meet a girl there. In fact I happened to literally bump into her while at the bar. We started talking, and progressively got more physical with her. Eventually we ended up back at my place… This was my first ever sexual experience with a woman in my life. Although I’ve kissed/made out with girls before and gone on dates with several women, I was a virgin until recently. And btw I’m 29 years old.
Ever since I started reading your blog (back in the days of “practical pickup”), I got a completely different perspective on the whole approach to dating, and what actually has real importance in that area. After having been coached by you I really got inspired by your general attitude and applied some of it to my own life. Finally, reading your book Models basically opened my eyes and made me understand certain things about myself; things that were keeping me from being successful in this area of my life. After some introspection, as well as applying some of the things described there, is when I started having noticeable improvement.
So, for all of this I want to say thank you. Your perspectives and insights were and are still an inspiration for me. Although I’m not totally “out of the woods” yet (ie. I noticed after my experience I still have some sexual shame/anxiety), I have a good idea of where to go from here.”
“Hey Mark. Your book, Models, was recommended to me by a friend, and I want to say it’s helped open me up to a LOT of things about myself I never confronted before. One segment in particular has probably helped me the most with personal growth in the past few weeks alone, and that was the segment on forming opinions, and asking myself “how do I feel about this?”
First, it had me thinking more about things I’d previously ignored, Whenever I had a strong emotional reaction to something, I also ended up asking myself WHY, and it led me realizing how much of an angry and defensive person I was. Even if I didn’t say it out loud, I would internally be justifying my actions and mistakes to other people, just based on judgments that I IMAGINED they were making. And on top of that, I realized that my endless perfectionism and defensiveness towards criticism is because I still lack a solid internal identity, and so I seek to validate myself by being good at things, no matter how trivial. I’m confronting it now. Still confronting it, because it’s such an automatic internal process that it’s taking a lot of active effort to change how I think about myself and what I do.
I don’t think I would have made some of these specific connections without your book. But progress is being made! I find myself becoming happier, more willing to speak my mind, more willing to accept it when people don’t like me, and finding out who that “me” is without attaching it to performance or other people’s opinions.
And since reading it, I’ve also landed numerous phone numbers and have a date this Wednesday. I actually enjoy telling girls straight up, “I’d like your phone number,” and so far I haven’t had a negative rejection either. A few with boyfriends or fiancees, but stuff like that is rolling off me. That doesn’t even touch on the increase in my fashionability, my rekindled exercise–you were right, Yoga classes have a LOT of in-shape ladies–and a willingness to explore and try new things.
So that’s my story. Thanks a lot Mark. You’ve helped me look at myself more honestly and deeply, and even though it’s tough admitting the negative things about myself TO myself, it feels like stretching; painful, but a growing pain, and a good one.”
“I want to tell you that you’re probably one of the few people who really got “it” figured out. I’m only half-way through your book, and it’s unbelievable how everything is making so much sense to me. Everytime I read something in your book I can relate it to some encounter I had with a girl, I now understand why I succeeded at times and failed at another. Especially the part about vulnerability. Even if I did not read the rest of the book, I already got what I paid for. Thank you Mark.”
My PU journey was actually really similar to yours. I had some meteoric success very early on, and actually started working as an assistant coach for one of the big companies for a while. All we did was go out and pick up girls, really. Seems like the life?
For me, no. Sleeping with endless bar girls, attractive yet emotionally damaged, did me just as much harm as it did help me. What I really needed, I think, was to allow myself to open up, to put forward the real me to a special woman – flaws and all – without fear of being judged as being ‘beta.’ I needed to fall in love, and I needed to be loved in return. Getting more sex didn’t make me a better person: I had a distinct lack in belonging and emotional fulfillment.
In retrospect, a lot of the guys I saw on bootcamps etc probably had similar issues, though no one is every willing to look at in any other way. The band-aid solution is to always fuck more girls.
You are unhappy? You gotta fuck more girls.
Lacking internal satisfaction? More girls.
Feel like you’re living a lie? More girls.
For some, like myself, it’s really quite toxic.
It’s taken me quite some time to come to grips with all of this, and you’ve played a not insignificant role in helping me identify my own path. So, thank you.”
“I just finished reading your new book Models, and I must say it was one of the most refreshing reads since I’ve started this journey a year ago. I’ve already begun applying it into my life, especially improving my lifestyle. One thing that has rubbed off on me is your positive attitude toward women and embracing their feminine energy rather than being bitter, angry or frustrated and is and is a mindset I hope to further embrace. Last night in the club, I noticed how good I felt with many beautiful women dressed to the 9’s, and I simply embraced how cute they are, whereas before I may have gotten frustrated that they get so much attention. There is a lot of bitterness in the community toward women. It could make for a good article topic to talk about this issue. Anyway, loved the book, love the blog, keep it up.”

I just finished your book today, “Models,” and wanted to tell you that your presentation of the subject is far to superior to anything else I’ve read.
I’ve been involved with seduction since 2006 and I’ve consumed a lot dating products. Many try to make their readers into “pickup artists” – today I gag at the term.
But you don’t do that. I like how spend so much time in the book reinforcing the fact that we are good human beings at our core and it’s a matter of presenting ourselves honestly, without apology to everyone we encounter. And you give the reader the tools to strip away all the disguises that other seduction gurus have said we need to wear at all times.
Thanks. Can’t wait to meet women today with these new eyes.”
“Not a lot to say, except a short message to tell you that I think you have the healthiest and most self-reflective views of pick-up all around. I’m not in the community, mainly because I’ve always had long-term girlfriends, but I read the material anyways as self improvement. You’re one of the few writers that talks about end game and the whole purpose of pick-up beyond sex and surface validation. It’s important for men to hear that the end goal isn’t women, but themselves. As with anything, once something is a challenge, people often forget why they’re doing it to begin with. Thank you.”
“The best book I’ve read in the dating/seduction field. And I read a lot. Highly recommended for understanding seduction/attraction at a core level instead of seeking short term results through routines and tricks.”

“I bought Models, and I gotta give you deep props homie.
Refreshing to hear someone tell it like it is – mindset is everything, actual words are pretty much meaningless.”
“Having read through part of the book, I thank you for making easy what the community has made difficult. Specifically, the whole wondering if the girl is testing and shit. Good job..I can finally get off the high wire and walk on solid ground.”
“I really like the book. Read it and took a bunch of notes. After reading this book I have a pretty good understanding of what my strengths and weaknesses are in the areas of lifestyle, courage, and outer game.
I already implemented some of the things I learned last Friday and got a date same week on Sunday. I would get laid too, but she was staying at a hostel and had 9 roommates. I’ll keep implementing the advice and have some real success real soon.”
