Publisher's Summary

Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing them. It's the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. A game-changer. Inside, you'll learn:

  • The root behavior that causes all female attraction.
  • Why typical dating advice and pick up theory is counter-productive in the long-run.
  • How to overcome nervousness and anxiety around attractive women.
  • How any man can make himself appear attractive with a little time and effort.
  • The three keys to keeping conversations with women interesting and engaging.
  • How to discover the beliefs and attitudes that are sabotaging your success with women.
  • How to develop a genuine and joyful sense of humor.

And much more...

Please Note: This audiobook does not include any accompanying material.

    "Narration is the worst I have ever heard!!!"

    Buy the book. This is so hard to listen to. He stumbles over words over and over.

    "The narration kills all credibility"

    While I’m not against an author narrating his own book, there are instances like this one when it’s just a bad idea. Not to say that this author could have done at least an adequate job if he had made an effort. Instead, what the listener is brutally subjected to is an unedited, unrehearsed and haphazard attempt at reading the text. It’s reminiscent of a junior high school student fumbling through a presentation of a just finished report, which was copied out of an encyclopedia and never really comprehended. It’s a shame, because the content has value but the delivery completely ruins even the most robust of concepts. All credibility in the material is lost when it’s coming from a source that sells such a weakly produced product. In addition to the lack of editing or proofreading, the author seemed to not even have given it a listen before releasing it for sale. The copyright and legal disclaimer at the beginning is read and for some reason explained before launching into the first section, which begins by repeating the same thing. I feel bad that the author doesn’t have a coach, advisor or even friend that could have told him of that and other mistakes. Or maybe he just doesn’t care. Expecting people to pay for something so poorly rendered is just wrong. I’ve often found that complaints regarding narrators of audiobooks were a bit petty and based mostly on certain style preferences. However, this audiobook is in an entirely new and more severe category of bad productions. I think I’m being a bit generous in giving the content a B+, the writing a C-and the narration a D-.

    "The content is great but the reader is awful"
    What did you like best about Models? What did you like least?

    Models shows a great way for men to think about the world and their relationship with women. It really focuses on improving yourself.

    Mark Manson read it himself. It sounds like it was recorded in front of his computer and he left all the misreads and stumbles in. I could hear mouse clicks and I'm pretty sure he got text messages while recording.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Manson’s performances?

    No. Absolutely not. It was a 7 hour book recorded in 7 hours and a ton of mistakes left in. The negative listening experience definitely can overshadow the amazing content.


    Did Models inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to change the way I thought about my relationships with women.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark, please have this re-recorded with a pro reader.

    Story
    "I learned a few things, but this book fell short."
    What was most disappointing about Mark Manson’s story?

    I did learn quite a bit from this book, but after trying to apply what I had learned I had zero success. For 3 months I went around flirting with women and asking for dates. I ended up with zero dates, but I did successfully alienate several friends and can no longer eat at some of my favorite restaurants. Clearly I am doing something wrong, but the answer to what that might be, is not explained in the book. I know these techniques can work, because I talked at length with a friend about what I had learned and he gets dates all the time using the advice I gave him. I felt disappointed that the author states that it doesn't matter what you say, it's how you say it. Sure, that's great and all, but I would have liked some basic conversation starters that I could start with or fall back on when my mind goes blank. Eventually I gave up and am back to where I started before reading the book, only with fewer friends. I'd also like to point out that the author goes on about how long he's been using the techniques and how much "success" he's had. Well, all that success and at the time of the writing of the book, he is not married nor has a steady girlfriend. Maybe that's not what he wants, but it's what I would like to have. I'm not going to go as far as saying this book is worthless, but I'm 38 years old now and it's looking like I'm going to be single forever and die alone. This book did give me some insight into how women think, but didn't get me any closer to a relationship with an actual woman. I learned that I was never particularly afraid of rejection, but rather afraid of making women feel uncomfortable. If you want to make women feel uncomfortable, by all means follow this man's advice, you will be very successful.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It's always great to have an audiobook read by it's author, however the sound quality was fairly poor. During several chapters there is an annoying hissing noise, and several times the author's cell phone receives texts. Also, the author occasionally mispronounces words that he allegedly wrote, that seemed odd.

    "Incredible content but poor narration"
    Any additional comments?

    The content was extremely good. I have learned some very good concepts that will help me be more successful with women, but also in all my human relations.

    The only reason I am not giving this audiobook 5 stars is because of the narration. The author reads the book without much intonation. Despite this negative point, I totally recommend this book!

    "amazing. don't let the voiceing throw you off"

    perhaps it updated. but the story telling and information is valuable. the vocal is fine- not prefect but it'll get you through.

    look at it as a powerful audiotape rather then a book. the exercises are still there

    "Much, much better than I thought it would be."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend the book to a friend...already have. It is a self help book without a lot of feel good fluff. Just wish the book had been around when I was in my 20's. Now that I'm in my early 50's I have overcome most of the mental obstacles to meeting women and all of the lifestyle challenges that most younger guys face. I'm just surprised that I agree with 90% of what this guy says. But one point that I didn't agree with is that demographics don't always work against you in a foreign country....moving to Colombia helped me out enormously.

    "Everyone knows you shouldn't narrate your own book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Eh. The ideas were great but the narration was so terrible, it was a constant distraction. I had to will myself to keep listening.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He just can't narrate. He sounded bored and almost annoyed. Maybe that's just his tone of voice. Either way, between his near monotone and the constant sounds of him swallowing and clearing his throat, it was painful to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark: Invest a bit of money and get a real narrator and this book will be great.

    "This is non cheesy dating advice for grown men"

    This is serious advice for grown men in today's dating world without the cheesy player b*******. I believe it is mentally healthy for men and women and it gives an even playing field for men to have a chance and for us to help women get out of their own way. I recommend that people listen to this multiple times.

    "Perspective."

    As a woman I throughly enjoyed reading this book. I found it as funny as it was informative. It helped me understand men a little bit better and I'm hoping to find a similar book in the near future geared for women.

    "Excellent insightful book marred by the narration"
    What did you like most about Models?

    A truly first class book on understanding what women want. Probably the best I have ever come across.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The error the writer Mark Manson made is in narrating the book himself. Really worthwhile, thought provoking information comes across quite flat. Also there are clicks at the beginning of each chapter where he is turning on the recording machine. The recording quality is poor too.

    "Superb"

    Had this recommended by a female friend, listened to it while walking around my city and it really really spoke to me. I feel like an idiot to be thinking this but I feel like it's changed my perception of the world. Before I focussed on bettering myself to make others like me - now I'll do it to give ME a better life, the other things will come naturally. Thank you mr Manson, I'm sure you know you've changed a few lives in your life.

    Such annoyingly cheap amateur production. Content is alright but audible: I paid you to deliver quality but lately you let all the authors read themselves. Be worth your money!!

    "Not a PUA book"

    This is an eye opening book of how to be yourself around others. Not for those who want to read a PUA book.

    The sound quality isn't good, but you'll get used to it after listening it for 20 minutes. I don't regret buying this book, as a matter of fact I think it's one of the the best self-improvement book ever written.

    "Genuine, entertaining, incredibly insightful."
    If you could sum up Models in three words, what would they be?

    Profound.
    Invaluable.
    Engaging.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Models?

    Hard to single any one out. So many to choose from.


    What does Mark Manson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    By reading it himself, he adds a depth of genuineness to the recount of his own experiences and his take on situations.
    It felt an honour to be able to hear his facial expressions, tonality and genuine emotions as he personally recalls each step of his journey and discoveries.

    Other reviewers criticised recordings and delivery for being amateurish, but I felt the style and quality of delivery was faultless and the occasional tape recorder clicks added far more than they took away - it made it feel so much more intimate and engaging.

    It makes me think there's a lot to be said to make more writers recording their own narrations - I have another Audible book read by a 'professional' narrator, and it's bland and featureless with no emotion inspired or delivered by any of the text.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, laughed many times by the stories, (and use of profanity!)

    The insights into men and women's character traits etc are profound. This is far more than a dating book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is truly the only dating book you ever need.

    This is far more than simply a dating book though - this is powerful stuff even for those in solid relationships.

    Given the absurdity of the suggestions made in most other dating books, most should be banned for the negative impact they have on individuals, behaviour and society in general.
