I reviewed Neil Strauss’ bestseller The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists for PopMatters. This book is a real blast. I’ve gotten nine people, both men and women, to buy it and they all love it. You can read this text as a how-to book, a memoir, a cautionary tale, or an entertaining examination of a culture most people didn’t know existed. Strauss was recently featured in a CNN article and his book has spent three weeks on the bestseller list.
