    "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.

    "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-.

    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!

    Story
    "Comprehensive, thorough, profound, direct, resonat"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Models to be better than the print version?

    Yes, it's read by Mark himself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Models?

    It was all good


    Which character – as performed by Mark Manson – was your favorite?

    Mark Manson. He is profoundly honest about who he was, who he is, and how we shouldn't try to be like him, but ourselves.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In a world... where no men believed in themselves...


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes Mark misspoke certain words, and corrects himself. It's endearing, and makes you feel like he's talking to you, instead of just reading the book. He speaks to you like a friend, an adviser, instead of spouting off didactic words like other "self help" authors.

    "Good advice, poor quality"
    What did you like best about Models? What did you like least?

    Models gives solid advice on being a man, how to treat yourself and others, and how to alter your approach to women and relationships to become more happy and successful. The quality of the recording is lacking, and the author is simply reading his book out loud.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Manson again?

    Doubtful


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Manson?

    Yes an actual voice actor would raise the quality of this purchase 10 fold.

    "Narration was genuine"
    What made the experience of listening to Models the most enjoyable?

    This is a fantastically honest book on dating and really personal development. The author narrated the book which for some has been a negative. However, I found the author very genuine and real.

    "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.

    "Unique and Refreshing Look at Seduction"
    What did you love best about Models?

    One of the problems with a lot of current self-help books is that they only offer band-aid short term solutions to core problems. I'm not trying to say that Model's only focuses on Inner Game, but rather delves into the core problems and the symptoms of each an every problem related to issues attracting women. Model's doesn't just give you a guide for attracting women, it gives you a guide to having more fulfilling relationships all throughout your life, and most importantly give you a sense of independence from the opinions of others. I have to say after reading this book, along with several real life experiences which led me to reading a new type of seduction book in the first place, I finally understand what it feels like to be one of those men that you see that just seem to have everything together.

    Manson narrates the book himself, and there are obvious hiccups, but his voice becomes endearing soon enough, and his commentary can be funny.

    Overall recommended to anyone who has trouble attracting women. This and "No More Mister Nice Guy" by Dr. Robert Glover (which Manson references in the epilogue) are probably the only two books you will need.

    "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.
