For every man who always wondered why some guys have all the luck, Mystery, considered by many to be the world's greatest pickup artist, finally reveals his secrets for finding and forming relationships with some of the world's most beautiful women. Mystery gained mainstream attention for his role in Neil Strauss's New York Times bestselling expose The Game. Now he has written the definitive handbook on the art of the pickup. He developed his unique method over years of observing social dynamics and interacting with women in clubs to learn how to overcome the guard shield that many women use to deflect come-ons from "average frustrated chumps." His tips include: -Give more attention to her less attractive friend at first, so your target will get jealous and try to win your attention. -Always approach a target within three seconds of noticing her. If a woman senses your hesitation, her perception of your value will be lower. -Don't be picky. Approach as many groups of people in a bar as you can and entertain them with fun conversation. As you move about the room, positive perception of you will grow. Now it's easy to meet anyone you want. -Smile. Guys who don't get laid, don't smile.

Chapter One The Mystery Behind Casanova If teachers and parents taught subjects in their order of importance to the males receiving their “wisdom,” history lessons wouldn’t invoke Greek philosophers and ancient mystics, presidents and kings, warriors and generals. They would focus instead on Casanova, history’s most accomplished and successful lover. He was born in Venice, Italy, in 1725, and he died in 1798, numbers that are less important than these: By his own account, over those seventy-three years, Casanova enjoyed erotic liaisons with 122 women during his travels across Europe as a clergyman, soldier, violinist, and magician. In eighteenth-century France, nobody had more game. But Casanova didn’t seduce indiscriminately. He set his sights high and took to bed only those women whose value made them worthy of pickup. These were the perfect 10s and near 10s of their day: what a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model might have looked like at one of Mozart’s recitals, floating from one social set to the next, glancing discreetly over a ruffled fan that obscured a plunging bustline, her hairdo intricately sculpted three feet high. They were women of extreme beauty with the highest social ranking, seemingly off-limits to anyone but royalty. Forget Shakespeare’s sonnets, the Gettysburg Address, and War and Peace—if Casanova had left behind not just an autobiography (itself wildly popular to this day) but a step-by-step, detailed how-to guide to his sexual conquests, it would rank as the most sought-after text in history, next to Holy Scriptures. What wouldn’t you or any man give to learn the secret of seducing beautiful women? Just look at the timeless appeal of the Kama Sutra—and then imagine a guide not to exotic sexual positions but to getting beautiful women attracted to you in the first place. My name is Mystery, and I have written just such a guide, now in your hands. As the world’s premier pickup artist, I am the closest thing there is to a modern-day Casanova (although I have already “outnumbered” him). Like my predecessor, I absolutely adore women. In fact, I fall in love with all of them. But that doesn’t make me unique. What makes me unique is that because of the pickup techniques I have mastered, my love doesn’t go unrequited. And I’m here to show you how to achieve the same success. The Algorithm for Getting Women Not only were the Venusian arts (the arts of love) excluded from your curriculum—but they’re probably the only discipline teachers didn’t try to cram into your brain as you passed from childhood through adolescence and then into adulthood. Let’s face it, when you studied algebra at school, the only numbers you really cared about were the measurements of the girl in the tight sweater and the digits you needed to get her on the phone. Those numbers added up to something worth getting your hands on. Enter the Mystery Method. If someone doesn’t have health and wants to get it, he or she will need to adopt an algorithm on how to do that—perhaps a new diet and workout regimen. If someone doesn’t have wealth and wants to get it, he or she will need to adopt an algorithm for wealth building—perhaps a new investment portfolio. Similarly, in relationships, if someone doesn’t have success and wants to get it, he or she will need to adopt the algorithm for success there. I invented that algorithm. I am your teacher and this is your guidebook to discerning the patterns in dynamic social interactions and then using them to your advantage. This body of knowledge, called the science of social dynamics, has become my life’s work, particularly as it applies to the world of pickup. It is about more than seduction and sexual conquest; it also encompasses making friends with men and women alike. But, make no mistake, it is first and foremost about getting laid more than you could ever have dreamed possible, assuming that’s what you want. And not just laid but, like Casanova, laid by those gorgeous women who have always seemed beyond reach. For him, it was members of the aristocracy; for you, I’m talking about the women you see walking runways in stiletto heels, on the arms of pro athletes and celebrities, and in the pages of Playboy and Maxim. You can have them. The Mystery Method can give them to you. Mastering the Science of Courtship The Mystery Method provides a step-by-step game plan that structures “courtship”—which is the quaint, old-fashioned term for the sequence of events that results in guys getting laid—for success. Before me, no one had ever defined courtship as a predetermined structure having several phases. Through years of study and experimentation, I identified a process that begins when you meet a woman who interests you. From there, using a finely calibrated ability to influence (not manipulate; there’s a huge difference), which this book will help you develop, you build attraction with her. This concept is hugely important: Attraction comes before seduction. But attraction, while necessary, isn’t an end in itself. Next, you need to build comfort with this woman you’ve targeted. (As you’ll find out, both are equally necessary for reaching the end-game: sex.) As I teach “courtship,” the process of building attraction and comfort will probably transpire over several venues—say, a bar and a restaurant—en route to the final venue, which will likely be your bed, or a hotel room’s. That won’t happen, however, until you create arousal at the end of the comfort-building stage and then begin a sexual relationship by seducing her. That’s what the Mystery Method does. What it is, is an advanced algorithm thirteen years in the making. I created it through years of trial and error, because I had to. When I was starting out there was no guidebook like the one you have now. I didn’t have the luxury of buying a book like this, or attending a seminar, or Googling “pickup artist” online. Armed with nothing but ignorance and desire, I went out into “the field,” because that’s where the girls were. Step-by-step, I learned first how to “open.” Once I learned how to open, I also discovered empirically that in public settings girls of beauty are seldom, if ever, alone. So then I had to get good at opening an entire group, and so on, until my system for seducing women became comprehensive, battle-tested, and turnkey. Honestly, had I read a guidebook like this when I was starting out, I would have saved myself about seven years of pain and confusion. Since its conception, the Mystery Method has been modified by some of my closest friends, most of whom were former students of mine who got caught up to speed on my techniques and became great pickup artists in their own right. Just as my students have learned their craft from me, I have in turn learned much from them, and the insights they gained in the field have improved my own methodology. Like any system of self-improvement and personal transformation, the Mystery Method is constantly being improved. It will always be a work in progress because the people using it are constantly changing as well. To keep it up-to-date with the latest empirical data available, I make systematic improvements every six months, without fail. You can keep up with our refinements and new discoveries at www.mysterymethod.com. Unlock the Secret to Attracting Beautiful Women If you follow the Mystery Method, as outlined in this book, you literally should be able to seduce any woman you meet—no matter how attractive she is and no matter how far out of reach she seems—within four to ten hours, with the average seduction occurring within seven, leading to what I call the Seven-Hour Rule. (Bear in mind that those seven hours aren’t necessarily continuous, although they can be. As I noted, usually taking courtship to seduction requires venue changes, which have to be accommodated through what are called time bridges. More on those later.) Seducing any woman in seven hours... how is this possible? The reason the Mystery Method works, and works so quickly, is that it defines the natural process of courtship, from meeting to sex, that has applied to every love story you’ve ever heard about, or read, or experienced. It reflects universal truths and the natural course of events, and I’ve backward-engineered it from my own successes. I would go in, “build” a girlfriend, and then think, OK, how did I do that? That’s how I figured out and unraveled the myriad of cognitive models that define courtship. OK, you’re probably thinking, Of course I’d love to build attraction and comfort with a gorgeous woman, but every time I approach one I get shot down before I’ve finished my second or third sentence. Here’s the deal—and it’s one of the most amazing secrets of the Mystery Method because it is so counterintuitive, running contrary to everything you’ve believed about attracting beautiful women your entire life. In order for you to be permitted the audience of a beautiful woman to attempt to attract her, you must first disqualify yourself from being considered a potential suitor by her. If you don’t do that, she will assume by your approach alone that you’re after her. And if you’re after her, she knows that you perceive her as having high value. And if her value is high, the odds are that it’s higher than yours. In other words, you will have low value, and you will be penalized, not only just for approaching her but also for being nice. At that point, you’ve already telegraphed that you’re not worth it. I will teach you how to avoid this trap using the Mystery Method. Instead of stumbling into a group of women blindly and immediately qualifying yourself as a potential suitor, you will learn how to win them over during those first few minutes, allowing you to demonstrate a higher value to them. The book will of course give you chapter and verse on de...
