A Complete Reading List For Dating and PUA Books

Along the path to my dating success there were a lot of other tools that helped improve my skills, personality, game, style and even looks. I have included most (if not all) of them in this course.

However, I still get a lot of guys asking me what books I read, what videos I watched and etc. So I compiled a list of the PUA books and self-improvement books I read here. Keep in mind I read and watched more than I can count, but below I listed the ones I thought were a worthwhile read. I’ll update this regularly as I read and review more books.

PUA Books

These are the top recommended books for improving your game:

1. Double Your Dating by David DeAngelo

This ebook (which has an updated version) can literally double your chances of success in dating. This is considered by a number of people as a goldmine simply because it offers tips and valuable information every guy should know about dating.

This book is both for men who are starting out and already dating but want to enhance their skills to pick up more girls. DeAngelo was able to compile all the things every man would need to feel confident about their dating strategy.

2. The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists by Neil Strauss

Reading from the title, you’d get a sense of excitement from Neil Strauss’s book. This book will take you to his journey from being a writer of Rolling Stone and other publications to being a master at picking up women as he delves into the culture of PUA (pickup artists) and eventually becomes one of them.

This is a good (and must-read) for every average Joes. The nerdy types and those who have been suffering for a long time because they can’t get a girl they like to go out with them at the very least.

The dating scene can be cruel to guys who don’t look like Hollywood A-listers, don’t have a high-paying job or a top-of-the-line car. They are usually the ones who spend Saturday nights alone in their room, watching some boring TV show. They are also the ones who are left standing at the corner of parties, busying themselves with drinks and drooling over the hot ladies surrounding them.

The Game will, in its own way, help you realize that despite all the tricks and tips relayed by the author to get women to bed or even get them interested in you, you have one thing that will make everything else fall into place: confidence.

Yes, you will definitely learn tons of valuable information from this book. Transform yourself into a chick magnet with everything you read in here. But more importantly, you will find out that seeing yourself in a whole new light and having confidence is your secret key. How to do that is what you should find out by reading the book.

3. I Hope they Serve Beer in Hell by Tucker Max

It is common for a lot of men to experience a lot of dating disasters. Most of the times, guys who experience this just throw in the towel and pray for a miracle to happen, like resemble Brad Pitt, which, of course, is not gonna happen.

If there is one thing men who failed at dating needs to do, is to learn from their mistakes and enjoy the journey, no matter how bumpy that road may be. This is exactly what Tucker Max did when he wrote the book I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.

Here, Tucker chronicles his experiences through anecdotal stories. This is composed of short stories that are focused mostly on his humorous experiences.  It touches on his views of women, excessive drinking, and even insulting other people.

This funny book has been included in the New York Times Bestseller List from 2006 to 2008 and has sold about 70,000 copies in its first year of release.

4. Rules of the Game by Neil Strauss

Before you can play the game, you need to know the rules. This is what the sequel to The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists tells us and helps us do.

After the success of his first book, which took us on a journey on how Neil Strauss transformed himself from being a writer to an expert PUA, he writes Rules of the Game, which will further help you on your quest to becoming successful in getting the woman you want.

This book will teach you techniques that are so moving you will feel the need to do them right away. In line with the strategies, Strauss also offers exciting tales that will compel you to continue turning page after page.

Rules of the Game comes in 2 volumes. The first volume, The Stylelife Challenge, will guide you through a 30-day mental workout program that will help you learn how to improve yourself in more ways than one. The next volume, They Style Diaries, will keep you entertained with horror dating stories.

If you’ve read and enjoyed the first book, you’d definitely want this one as well.

5. The Mystery Method: How to Get Beautiful Women Into Bed by Mystery, Lovedrop, and Neil Strauss

If you’ve been burned a lot of times when it comes to trying to get a woman into bed, or simply going out on a series of dates with you and you’ve tried different ways to do it, then this book is definitely for you.

This collaboration from the best PUA experts will systematically walks you through the stages on meeting a woman, getting to know her, and eventually getting into her pants. Several people who’ve been introduced to the subject matter consider The Mystery Method as one of the few that stands out from the rest.

6. The Secrets of Sexual Addiction

Are you hungry for more intimacy? Do you think of sex often? If so, then this book will surely help you satisfy your physical desires.

The book will take on an erotic journey on how you can make a woman desire you so much she’ll want to have sex with you all the time. This is no exaggeration. A woman is a sensitive creature. Touch her in the right places and she will get addicted to you.

The problem with most guys now is that they don’t bring passion and pleasure to their partners. They’re too concerned with getting off they forget that women needs to reach the climax too.

Rarely will a woman find a partner that not only lets her reach climax and knows how to pleasure her. Master different sexual techniques and you will soon find yourself getting all the sex you want!


You have to relax and read something different from time to time. Yet some of my favorite humor books are related to picking up and dating, so I decided to post them here:

1. The Alphabet of Manliness by Maddox

George Ouzounian, who goes by the name Maddox, wrote this funny and entertaining book which can be considered as the encyclopedia of manliness. This is one good read, if you’re up for some laughs.

Although some would consider it misogynistic, one can’t help but turn the page. And yes, even women will find it funny. As a matter of fact, Maddox claims that more than 40% of his readers are women.

And because it is hilarious, it’s not surprising that people like it. As a matter of fact, it was number 1 for the pre-orders at

2. The Complete A**hole’s Guide to Handling Chicks by Dan Indante and Karl Marks

One of the myths when it comes to dating is that girls are generally attracted to bad boys. It is believed that tough guys are more attractive to chicks compared to the prim and proper types.

But isn’t it that girls want to be respected and treated the way they should be? The way only the decent and well-behaved men can do? Well, this is where things can get complicated.

Dan Indante and Karl Marks managed to come up with perfectly sensible reasons why chicks dig bad boys. It’s ironic how an a**hole can handle a woman perfectly well. The bigger question here is why women allow themselves to be with a guy that is close to being considered a pain in the butt. That is what you will learn in this wittingly funny and entertaining book.


Being a Pick Up Master involves constant self-improvement. The books below are usually categorized as self-help. I think the should be called self-improvement because the people that read them don’t need help. It’s the people that don’t read these that do.

1. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Judging from the title, you will instantly know what this book is all about. If you want to learn more about being a good communicator and establish good relationships with people, then this book is for you.

Written in the 1930s, this book will teach you different techniques on how to win people. Because this was written with professionals more in mind of the author, “winning friends” doesn’t exactly mean the kind of relationships you would treasure for the rest of your life, but being able to win people over. But it can be the foundation of a more profound and intimate relationship.

If you want to know the techniques on how to handle people, how to make them like you, and make them change, then reading this book will do you a lot of good.

2. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

Everybody wants to be in on the secret. When you are aware of a secret, you feel empowered, part of something, and important.

In life, knowing the secret to something could mean success. Ever noticed how a lot of how-to books and articles are springing out of nowhere? The secret to doing almost anything sell like pancakes. Why? It is because we are inherently hopeful.

Each of us wants to take life to the next level; we all want better lives and to do that the fast and easy way, you need to be let on it some secret. And the moment you find out what that is, it’s like a door has suddenly been opened and a surge of light comes in to make you see what you need to do.

This book is just like that. If you want to know the secret to happiness and success, whether it’s dating or professional advancement, this book can help show you the way. You can read dozens of truly amazing stories that not a lot of people get the chance to hear.

Be inspired. Be on the know. Discover the Secret.

3. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey

It is a universal fact that all people want to be successful in their respective fields. However, as much as everyone wants to find true success, only a select few knows what it feels to be successful.

Jealous? You have the right to be, especially if these people seem to not be stressed by their workloads despite enormous tasks and responsibilities. The reason behind this is that they have acquired the habits of becoming effective people.

This book, by Stephen Covey, is still as fresh and compelling as it was when it first came out. I’m sure a lot of people have already read this and implemented the things mentioned in the book in their lives. Career advancement begins with being efficient and effective. So if you want to have those two, start reading now.

The admirable quality of this book is it doesn’t repeat the easy and simple principles that have been told time and time again. Its techniques are profound, detailed, and well-thought of. You will definitely enjoy discovering how to become proactive and more productive.


Despite my extensive reading of the subject, I still haven’t managed to finish all of the books. Here are some dating/pick up books I’m yet to read and review.

1. How to Pick Up Girls 2000! by Eric Weber

Picking up girls is something not a lot of men are used to. Perhaps the reason for this is they sucked at it before, so now they are afraid that they experience the same rejection from the girl standing in line or the chick behind the grocery counter.

What this book does is open up your eyes to the fact that there will always be a girl who will be receptive to your moves. You can be anywhere and yet get to pick up a girl. And if you think only the ‘bad boys’ are attractive to girls, you will learn from this book that there is still a significant number of  girls that respond well to honest and friendly advances.

You will learn techniques, principles and strategies from the stories and interviews done by the author. First-hand experience is always best when trying to learn new things.

2. The Professional Bachelor Dating Guide – How to Exploit Her Inner Psycho by Brett Tate

The Professional Bachelor Dating Guide is a good book that will help you when it comes to marketing yourself and trying to learn effective persuasion skills.

This is more than the type of guide that teaches you how to pick up women on a bar. This goes beyond that. This book will help you to make a better and more attractive you. The author was able to cover a lot of aspects like creating value, building a strong presence, enhancing charisma, and others.

All bachelors would benefit from reading this book. No other book of the same topic can generate the same effect as this one.

3. The Lay Guide: How to Seduce Women More Beautiful Than You Ever Dreamed Possible No Matter What You Look Like or How Much You Make by Tony Clink

If its long title is any indication, the information you will get from this book is very lengthy. You will learn a lot of things that range from how to get a woman to pay for the drink you’ve bought her to getting into a hot chick’s pants.

Obviously, this book teaches men how to get laid with certain techniques, principles, and strategies. But one thing that will surprise you is that you can use the techniques in situations outside dating. This makes the book worth more than it is.
