Hard to stop reading - so I bought the Audible version, also - It is read by the author !!
All man and women organize somehow for The Game. They all do good things and bad things, they all have high
expectations and low results. As Tony Robbins say "What people can do is infinite, what people will do is disappointing" Tony is also a Guru of NLP and somehow this domains are related. I remember when Tony told us how he invited 4 girls in 4 successive weeks on his private island to do some similar patterns :-) ... you should find him telling this :-)
It is an incredible book about people that tried very hard to get results in a life for which we do not receive a user manual. Not for our life and not for our brain. You should read books like this again and again and considered yourself fortunate that you have access to them, that someone is trying to write some pages of this missing manuals (There is a joke that Ireland dancers do not move their hands because half of their dancing manual was lost during a war :-))
I will paraphrase David di Angelo who told us "When I was young I dd not know any rich man and I did not know any one that knew a rich man" - so my phrase is this "I lived until 25 years old in communist Eastern Europe and I knew a guy who had an illegal Playboy magazine, brought by his father into my country, but I did not see it - I only knew that he had it"
Enjoy this incredible effort to become better, to get more from life. Some stack money, some stack memories into similar futile effort to justify existence - "You never do anything with your life, but there are more kinds of doing nothing with your life" (from a French writer)
Let's zig-zag through creation and joy a leave a world better than the one that created us !
Thank you Style and keep writing !

Useful but not in the way you think
The only thing I took out of this book was that you can get any girl you want sibling as you're prepared to fail, its changed my outlook, but I certainly won't be using any of the "techniques"
