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 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
    "A rare, insightful take on personal independence. "

    I've read and reread many well known psychology books on codependency, narcissism and healthy interdependence (aka "good relationships"), and Models for me takes its place as one of the best, how to fix yourself, books I've ever read.

    Sure, the premise is about attracting women from a man's perspective, but that's just the hook as this book accurately describes the need for honesty with one's self and honesty with those we interact with and especially with women. In explaining why honesty empowers you and why honesty matters, I found many useful insights into personal independence that parallel many psychology self-help books by PhDs and experts. Take out the chapter on sex and one night stands (not that the author is wrong for including these topics) as they are a bit of a detraction, and you have one of the most practical self-help books I've ever read for needy, and/or codependent "nice guys."

    Models is a great book for men in general.

    "its just good!"

    its like a friend's uncle just kicked knowledge for some hours and it was all stuff that you could relate to and/or understand. its not read as well as "the subtle art of not giving a f" but that also makes it easier to relate to the narrator...who happens to be the author. It wasn't underwhelming at all to me because none of what he said sounded contrived or like something somebody says to just sound like they know it all. Alot of it is just encouragement/reassurance but don't let that stop you, because it might be new to you. Things I've been told before or have come to realize, Mark talks about. But for me that was cool because its like I get to have somebody remind me, that being realistic and doubting myself are NOT the same thing. I hope this helps.

    "Reflect on yourself"

    I have read the Mystery Method and The Game and Models puts them to shame. This is a great book to help you seek what kind of women you want to attract while asking you if you really want those women in your lives. I have re-listened to the beginning of this book many times because it deals with "needy" and "non-needy" personalities that made me redefine what kind of people I want to attract to my life. The level of self reflection that the author endows onto the audience is amazing and I highly recommend it to individuals struggling with their inner worth. I would also like to note that he recommends "Daring Greatly," which is also an amazing resource to help you with your internal battles. I highly recommend this book.

    "I like that he had trouble narrating."

    This is a book about fear, growth and building yourself so that the life outside of you is that way that you want. Is about running towards a mixture of failure and success, because that is the only way big successes will come about.

    The author's narration was sometimes troubled. He was always easy to understand, but he often sounded like your buddy at a dive bar telling you his discovery about dating.

    And that is the point.

    He isn't perfect and polished the whole way, because he isn't afraid to screw up. If Simon Vance were narrating this would get an Audie, but probably not change as many lives. As it is, this is the book I needed right now. Not for dating insights or style tips, but a kick in the ass to go pursue the life that I want.

    tl;dr: GET THIS BOOK!!

    "Great information but..."

    I'm a very shy guy that can't land a date even if my life depends on that, so I found the information of this book to be great.

    But I should say that there are some parts where the narrator makes mistakes that can be a little bit annoying.

    "Life Changing"

    I couldn't tell you a single thing I disliked about this book. The amount I learned about myself and how to be more attractive around woman is worth so much more than the price of this book. Very pleasantly surprised. It's almost like the book was written just for me with all the examples. Highly recommend!!

    "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.

    "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.

    It's very basic and boring. Self-help manual. Plenty of similar titles out there. Taps into PUA culture. If you are in your 20s, go for it.
    Narrator's voice is clear and rescues this otherwise very average audiobook.

    "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.
