Area51Lifestyle, the premier source of information on The Game, Mystery and PUA continues it’s investigaiton of Neil Strauss.
We’ve had questions as to why we started this investigation.
Here’s the scoop:
The story began in Macon, Georgia, in Frank Kern’s living room as he and his wife improbably reintroduced me to Mystery, the world’s greatest Pick Up artist according to the New York Times, and introduced me to the New York Times best seller The Game, authored by Neil Strauss.
This was October of 2005 and things were very different then than they are now.
The Game, Neil’s first book as himself, after having ghost written books like “The Dirt, Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.” all about Motly Crue, Tommy Lee’s first and most famous band.
(Incidentally Tommy Lee would become a massive influence on pick-up through his relationship with Neil becuase of Mystery. Explanation to come.)
Neil also helped Pam Anderson pen a book, but the Game ripped into his own personal life…
…At least to an extent.
And more importantly it penetrated the world of the pick-up artist, the guy who used strategy, training and skill built guile to attract women and not just the classic formula of money, looks and power.
In fact “the Game” chronicled how Mystery, Neil’s friend and mentor, and Neil and their friends (and enemies!) lived like rock stars for a brief period of time in Hollywood.
Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise, and Brittany Speers are all up for grabs by the reputation.
But more importantly the reputations of gurus in the pick-up market was made, broken and shanken up.
The big winners?
Everyone involved. At least the gurus anyways.
It turns out that even folks who were sort of slammed by Neil’s account of the way he infiltrated the secret society of pick-up artist won out in the end because of the massive exposure of the situation and the immursive nature of Neil’s account that made the characters of the world pop to life.
On the chopping block were Mystery, Ross Jeffries and Tyler Durden, all aliases of well known pick-up gurus.
All humiliated all the way to the bank in the Game…
But who won out the most?
Neil Strauss is the one guy who went from having no reputation to vaulting to the forefront of recognition with a budding online marketing career to boot.
More to come.
It’s all happening….
