Now that Models [2] has been out for a couple months, I’ve accumulated quite a few reviews and testimonials on the book and my new material this year. The book’s page has been updated [2] with all of the reviews if you’d like to see them.

It seems every pick up and dating product has the obligatory “this book helped me get a date!” or “this book helped me get laid!” type of reviews. Mine’s no different, but a few testimonials came in that are pretty unique or especially heartening, so I’ve posted them below.

Hey 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.



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.

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 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.

Hey Mark,

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.
