Publisher's Summary

Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing 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. A game-changer. Inside, you'll learn:

  • The root behavior that causes all female attraction.
  • Why typical dating advice and pick up theory is counter-productive in the long-run.
  • How to overcome nervousness and anxiety around attractive women.
  • How any man can make himself appear attractive with a little time and effort.
  • The three keys to keeping conversations with women interesting and engaging.
  • How to discover the beliefs and attitudes that are sabotaging your success with women.
  • How to develop a genuine and joyful sense of humor.

And much more...

Most beautiful words are ordinary

I read all these fancy books where the authors try and splurge out words and phrases that just confuse and lose anyone not looking to become an English philosopher. Models use clear and concise language and makes some very logical and realistic points in attracting women. Absolutely woukd recommend to anyone.

Easily the best book of its kind

As he explains in the book, this book is unlike any other male dating advice, where the market is flooded with deceitful tricks to get women into bed. This book focuses on self improvement and being honest with women in order to build rapport and attraction

Very Helpful

I enjoyed this through and through. I really wasn’t expecting to since it seems to target straight men. But don’t be discouraged if you’re female or have a different sexual preference! It really helped me become far less needy and made me more self aware of my behaviour and in turn made myself happier, even as a straight female. The core lesson of this book is important and I would recommend it to anyone! Even for people who aren’t looking for a relationship. 10/10 would recommend.

Honest

Down to earth and smart, this book is an honest look at how to be attractive to women and how to date them without the pick up lines and flair that other books about dating have.

It critiques pick up culture and shows the flaws with it. The best part of this book though, is it focuses on the character building aspect that men need to develop in order to be attractive not just to the opposite sex but to people in general.

It does this by teaching men to be vulnerable and honest about who they are, where they're at and what their weaknesses are. Narration is superb and appropriate for the book.

I can vouch that this book works because a lot of what the book teaches I've already learnt and benefited from but haven't been able to articulate until I read this book. 10/10.

Narration has been updated - it’s great!

I was almost turned away because of the reviews warning against the author’s narration. Looks like he took their advice and hired a pro. Austin does a great job. This is a fantastic book!

its just good!

its like a friend's uncle just kicked knowledge for some hours and it was all stuff that you could relate to and/or understand. its not read as well as "the subtle art of not giving a f" but that also makes it easier to relate to the narrator...who happens to be the author. It wasn't underwhelming at all to me because none of what he said sounded contrived or like something somebody says to just sound like they know it all. Alot of it is just encouragement/reassurance but don't let that stop you, because it might be new to you. Things I've been told before or have come to realize, Mark talks about. But for me that was cool because its like I get to have somebody remind me, that being realistic and doubting myself are NOT the same thing. I hope this helps.

Great book for any "Needy" guy in relationships!

Outstanding book Mark, not only have you taught me to be more self aware of how I interact with women, but your book has educated me to in-power my me by improving my self image! My existing girl friend had notice positive changes immediately once I started reading your book!

Thank you Mark, I really appreciate your outstanding knowledge specifically when it comes to understanding the opposite sex!

I like that he had trouble narrating.

This is a book about fear, growth and building yourself so that the life outside of you is that way that you want. Is about running towards a mixture of failure and success, because that is the only way big successes will come about.

The author's narration was sometimes troubled. He was always easy to understand, but he often sounded like your buddy at a dive bar telling you his discovery about dating.

And that is the point.

He isn't perfect and polished the whole way, because he isn't afraid to screw up. If Simon Vance were narrating this would get an Audie, but probably not change as many lives. As it is, this is the book I needed right now. Not for dating insights or style tips, but a kick in the ass to go pursue the life that I want.

tl;dr: GET THIS BOOK!!

The content is great but the reader is awful

What did you like best about Models? What did you like least?

Models shows a great way for men to think about the world and their relationship with women. It really focuses on improving yourself.

Mark Manson read it himself. It sounds like it was recorded in front of his computer and he left all the misreads and stumbles in. I could hear mouse clicks and I'm pretty sure he got text messages while recording.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Manson’s performances?

No. Absolutely not. It was a 7 hour book recorded in 7 hours and a ton of mistakes left in. The negative listening experience definitely can overshadow the amazing content.

Did Models inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to change the way I thought about my relationships with women.

Any additional comments?

Mark, please have this re-recorded with a pro reader.

Just what I needed

I thought it was going to be a sleazy pick-up book. It turned out to be a long journey into self-discovery that I needed many years ago.

The narration kills all credibility

While I’m not against an author narrating his own book, there are instances like this one when it’s just a bad idea. Not to say that this author could have done at least an adequate job if he had made an effort. Instead, what the listener is brutally subjected to is an unedited, unrehearsed and haphazard attempt at reading the text. It’s reminiscent of a junior high school student fumbling through a presentation of a just finished report, which was copied out of an encyclopedia and never really comprehended. It’s a shame, because the content has value but the delivery completely ruins even the most robust of concepts. All credibility in the material is lost when it’s coming from a source that sells such a weakly produced product. In addition to the lack of editing or proofreading, the author seemed to not even have given it a listen before releasing it for sale. The copyright and legal disclaimer at the beginning is read and for some reason explained before launching into the first section, which begins by repeating the same thing. I feel bad that the author doesn’t have a coach, advisor or even friend that could have told him of that and other mistakes. Or maybe he just doesn’t care. Expecting people to pay for something so poorly rendered is just wrong. I’ve often found that complaints regarding narrators of audiobooks were a bit petty and based mostly on certain style preferences. However, this audiobook is in an entirely new and more severe category of bad productions. I think I’m being a bit generous in giving the content a B+, the writing a C-and the narration a D-.

The anti-PUA book

This is by far the best book on pickup I’ve ever read. Mark Manson offers an introspective look on how to conquer your own demons, start living a more attractive lifestyle, and tips to attract and be more attractive to the women you want to meet. Interestingly I also found a lot of parallels to how I interact with family friends and coworkers and I would even recommend this book for anyone who’s already in a relationship or even married because especially in the early chapters he talks about how certain types of incompatible people wind up feeding off their own insecurities and toxic relationships. Fascinating stuff! Best of all he talks about “the other pickup artists” and offers foundations on why those methods work, why people seek them, why they aren’t long term solutions, and why you may become a terrible narcissist if you study “game” too much. Seriously - man woman lgbtq - read this book.

A rare, insightful take on personal independence.

I've read and reread many well known psychology books on codependency, narcissism and healthy interdependence (aka "good relationships"), and Models for me takes its place as one of the best, how to fix yourself, books I've ever read.

Sure, the premise is about attracting women from a man's perspective, but that's just the hook as this book accurately describes the need for honesty with one's self and honesty with those we interact with and especially with women. In explaining why honesty empowers you and why honesty matters, I found many useful insights into personal independence that parallel many psychology self-help books by PhDs and experts. Take out the chapter on sex and one night stands (not that the author is wrong for including these topics) as they are a bit of a detraction, and you have one of the most practical self-help books I've ever read for needy, and/or codependent "nice guys."

Models is a great book for men in general.

amazing. don't let the voiceing throw you off

perhaps it updated. but the story telling and information is valuable. the vocal is fine- not prefect but it'll get you through.

look at it as a powerful audiotape rather then a book. the exercises are still there

Superb

Had this recommended by a female friend, listened to it while walking around my city and it really really spoke to me. I feel like an idiot to be thinking this but I feel like it's changed my perception of the world. Before I focussed on bettering myself to make others like me - now I'll do it to give ME a better life, the other things will come naturally. Thank you mr Manson, I'm sure you know you've changed a few lives in your life.

Excellent insightful book marred by the narration

What did you like most about Models?

A truly first class book on understanding what women want. Probably the best I have ever come across.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The error the writer Mark Manson made is in narrating the book himself. Really worthwhile, thought provoking information comes across quite flat. Also there are clicks at the beginning of each chapter where he is turning on the recording machine. The recording quality is poor too.

Enjoyable book

I have read and listened to this book at different times, and I have found it very enjoyable with a good idea to follow. Let's say this book will introduce you to the interesting concept about yourself and the person you are attracted to; it is up to you to take action then.

ESSENTIAL LISTENING! Wish I had this when I was 15

Best book ever about dating at any age. This is the book. Get it and listen! You will thank me if you do, and you will be released from all the dissatisfaction you currently have and set on a road to fulfilment. This thorough book leaves no holes barred and tells you like it is. The author completely nails it. Following the advice in this book will save you countless time, money and angst. This is the definitive manual. I listened to this book over a 10 day period and already I've had results just in this time. I've had a date already with a v attractive lady and I've arranged for 2 more dates with two others. This would not be the case if I hadn't read this book. It gave me the courage, knowledge and strength to make those dates which I never would have done as I'm quite shy and often vague and blocked in being sexual with woman (I don't mean girlfriends, I mean girls I'm attracted to). I thought I wasn't until I listened and then realised how unclear and scared I really was. And that by giving in to my fear and insecurities I wasn't being true to myself at all or going for what I really wanted and this book has given me the balls and reasons to make the shift and follow through. For instance, I literally have turned a gourgeous woman who was a coworker and who I was scared to ask out into a hot date this Weekend just by manning up and expressing my interest in an honest and playful way, where she feels beautiful and desired. I have listened to many podcasts and watched many dating videos over the years, and had many girlfriends, so yes I have experience already and I've slept with over a hundred women, but have been failing miserably recently to have a decent sex life and love life yet in days the nuggets in this book have helped me so much in my understanding of the dynamics of dating and male female relating and I'm already seeing the results. I intend to relisten once a month, so it really goes in. Mark Masons is a hero for all men who have challenges in the dating realms.

Absolutely the best relationship book I've read

No other book have resonated with so much as this one when it comes to relationships and dating material.
What i like about it is the fact the doesn't teach you to fake and use techniques that even if they work, but are not really you, are not based on truth.
Definitely recomm this book to anyone wanting to understand more about relationships and at the same time being real and confortable with themselves.

Useful

In short: don't be needy. Care more about how you think about yourself than others think about you. Don't be afraid to be vulnerable with women. Vulnerable means sharing with them not for their approval, but because you want to deepen the relationship.

Life changing!

If you have struggled with women as a man and are willing to realise that you need to make changes in your own life and behaviour then this book is the single most life changing thing that you need to read right now.
