As a man, when you decide that you want to express your romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman, how do you go about communicating those desires and interests to her?
Do you communicate your desires and interests to women in a cautious, vague, ambiguous, or "beat around the bush" manner?
Do you avoid approaching women and avoid initiating conversations with women altogether?
Do you regularly cheat on your wife or girlfriend behind her back?
Are you currently filled with so much bitterness, misogyny, and resentment toward women that you have no desire whatsoever to even interact with them?
In the audiobook version of Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking, author and professional dating coach Alan Roger Currie describes and examines what he refers to as the "Four Modes of Verbal Communication".
Currie makes the strong argument in his audiobook that the most effective interpersonal communication style that a man can exhibit with a woman is MODE ONE behavior, which represents when a man expresses his romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman in a manner that is bold, highly self-assured, up front, specific, and straightforwardly honest.
Currie harshly criticizes the idea of men maintaining disingenuous platonic friendships with women (what Currie refers to as "FunClubbin"), and he also points out that many men and women tend to exhibit behavior that is very duplicitous, dishonest, disingenuous, misleading, and manipulative when interacting with members of the opposite sex in today's dating scene.
Currie invites his male listeners to take notes while listening to each and every chapter (preprinted notes are available at http://www.modeone.net/journal/).
Warning: Some chapters in the audiobook include explicit language.

I bought this because I bought "Ooooh say it again" and the Author suggested in that book that this one was a suggested prerequisite. Not in my opinion. "Ooooh say it again" is much better and can be taken in on it's own.
"A must listen to audio book for both men and women"
First, I would warn my friends that Alan uses some "choice words" at times (profanity, X-rated language), but that aside, this is a very enlightening and entertaining audiobook. I have listened to Alan's popular podcast show on BlogTalkRadio, and his interviews are always worth listening to. Matter of fact, he includes excerpts from his two podcast programs in the audiobook. Alan does not mince words while offering advice to men on how to be more successful with women.
Most women prefer to have a long-term romantic and sex partner, but in this day and age, casual sex is also quite common. Alan offers some advice that I believe even most women would agree with, which is stop lying to women about what you really want (sex) and quit manipulating women's emotions to get what you want (again, sex). Women hate men who are liars, cheaters, and game-players!!
Author Alan Roger Currie speaks with a lot of conviction. You can tell that Alan has had more than his fair share of dating and sexual experiences with women. My only minor criticisms would be that Alan loves to really hammer down certain points of his (he repeats certain points as many as 3 or 4 times!) and as mentioned, he does use profanity and X-rated language in certain portions. I would not allow someone under 17 or 18 years of age to listen unless supervised by an adult
The audiobook content is definitely for men, but I genuinely enjoyed listening to it from a woman's point of view too. The main message seems to be, if you want to spark romantic interest in a woman, you have to have the courage and confidence to at least approach her and initiate a conversation with her.If you want to take it a step further and persuade a woman to indulge in more casual sex with you, then you really have to show women that you have a nice pair of big brass balls!! (women love super-confident men!)Chapter 10 (or what really should be listed as Chapter 8) is the marquee chapter. I am now going to be on the lookout for men who behave in Mode 2, Mode 3, or Mode 4 instead of Mode 1.
Alan is going to ask you to take a LOT of notes while listening. Women who listen can pretty much ignore the note-taking exercises, but I would suggest that the men take as many notes as possible. (Alan has some pre-printed notes available on his website)I think the audiobook is a good listen for BOTH sexes. Alan does not teach any methods or techniques that are deceitful or manipulative in nature, which is why he earned my respect as a woman. His teachings centre on bold, upfront, balls out honesty with women. And either women say Yay or Nay. If a woman says "Nay," Alan suggests you just simply move on to the next woman of interest. I think the audiobook is an excellent listen for even a woman!!
"Changed my life forever. I'm the best me now."
A mustread book if you're on a selfimproving journey in your life. Everything was fucking perfect! MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODE ONE
Take notes, It will bring more out of the book and yourself.
"Man, what a book!"
I really like the subtitle of the book "let the woman know what you're really thinking". When I asked a woman who I'm romantically interested in to wear a skirt and she asked why? I told her that I wanted to have sex with her & it makes it easier to pull down the panties, she said she wanted to see if I had the balls to say it. I would've never told her that before listening to this audio book.
"Making Informed Decisions"
Though this book may center on single males interacting with women, this work is clearly about more. Firstly, being able to make an informed decision about anything in one's life is paramount. Secondly, the only way one can make an informed decision is when everyone is "Upfront and Straightforward." This phrase is the key to understanding and being in a "Mode One" behavior.
I would recommend this book to males single or married. It's not strictly about getting a woman into bed, but about how men and women can stop wasting each others time.
This book and all the others by Allan, Allan Roger Currie, Mr. 3 names could be taken as a Operating System for interaction(s).
"Good for everyone"
Nice and good i already have the books so I must on for all men to read.
Yes it's a must read for any heterosexual male.
It's a males guide to being a man
The passion in his voice at the end
The ending chapters I didn't want it to end
fanttastic book that is really recommended.
if you purchased this book you must purchase the sequel too, for together they are dynamite :)
Good information. A little repetitive and redundant and self promotional in places but well worth the time spent listening
"Bold, Upfront, Specific and Straight-to-the-Point!"
Author and Dating Coach Alan Roger Currie is a no B.S. type of guy, and I can appreciate that.
While many pickup artists and other dating coaches teach men how to get women in bed by misleading women into believing that a man wants to be the next love of their life (boyfriend, husband, special someone, etc.), Currie teaches men to just boldly and straightforwardly let women know in their very first conversation with a woman that they have no interest in a platonic friendship or a long-term romance, but rather that the man simply wants a few days, a few weeks, or a few months of no-strings-attached casual sex. Currie believes either women will reciprocate a man's desire for sex, or the women will reject the man. With either response, no time is wasted, no money is wasted, and no manipulation takes place.
Currie is probably the most underrated and overlooked men's dating advice author out there. Many other dating coaches and authors have copied many of Currie's teachings and philosophies over the past ten years, but there is only one authentic Master of Verbally Direct Game with women, and that is Currie.
This audiobook is a must listen for every heterosexual man who has grown tired of all of the game playing between men and women. The number one takeaway from this audiobook is to always be upfront, specific, and straight-to-the-point with women about why you REALLY want to have a conversation with them and why you REALLY want to spend time with them socially.
Currie also has pre-printed journal notes available for this particular audiobook. Mode One Baby!!
"Mode 1 All The Way For Me"
A very clear cut message with some great examples. Alan does an excellent job in communicating his message and why being upfront, direct, authentic and not hide around the bush is the way to go. Great listen, highly recommended.
"Alpha Male and Women"
yes, the book hits the nail on the head, and as a reader you understand and relate to what he is saying very easily. great advise too.
Jack was definitely my favorite character, not only is he frank, but he knows what he wants and always speaks his mind and is very confident of himself
He speaks slow enough, his pronunciation of words was eloquent and anybody irrespective of where you are from would understand what he is saying and still makes it interesting
when he talks about as a man you being angry is really not directed at your ex but at yourself for not being your true self in the first place
This audio book is worth listening too, though it's pretty long but it's worth every second of it and yea, when you're done, you'll have a lot of new resolutions
"Game Changer for the Urban Male"
This book should be required reading for all boys and men committed to stepping up their game. Such knowledge is usually passed down from an Alpha Male father to his son, or from a big brother figure.
However with the current epidemic of adult boys who have never fully grown up and matured, never gone through a right of passage, never had a truly inspiring role model of a Total Alpha Male that they would want to grow up & emulate and a distinct lack of man-to-man brotherhood fraternity mentorship, it's no wonder why beta male seniors are ill equipped to help the youth.
This is where Alan Roger Currie steps in. His no nonsense, straight to the point and direct approach to life comes across in both his teaching and how he interacts with women.
What you will learn in this audiobook is the truth. Any man who has even a small amount of experience with women will feel Alan's words and wisdom resonating with them on a variety of points and levels. Most of my conversations and schooling about 'game' came from listening to older guys at the barbershop and exchanging experiences, but not all of these guys were true ladies men, womanizers and playaz. Alan Roger Currie is a master. The time you spend with him, absorbing his insights and techniques will save you years, if not decades of frustration. By knowing how to tell women what you really think, your success as an Alpha Male goes into orbit. Not only have I got results from this material within just days of absorbing it, but my outlook and approach to many areas of life has changed for the better. You will think, feel and be Alpha and the level at which you operate as a man will be distinctively elevated. May you always be gravitating to Mode One!
