    "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-.

    "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
    "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.

    "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.

    "Great insight horrible presentation"

    This books goal is to make a man shine or be at his best. It is unlike pua material in that the focus is on honesty toward self and others. It covers many details necessary to making great connections with women but the delivery of the material is amazingly amateurish. This guy sounds like he's recording this book on a cheap cassette recorder- you even hear him click the pause button....however, that aside, the information is good, his insight is fascinating and well worth the listen.

    This is my favorite male dating advice/pick up artist book based on the content, but listen to the sample. Very poor sound quality.

    "A good game plan"
    Would you listen to Models again? Why?

    This is a book you listen to again and again, and get the print version too, because you want to make sure you understand everything that's written because it can really help you change your life.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    An idea from this book I will remember is that we all have our own stories for why we don't do things...to us, at the time, these stories seem plausible and even logical...but in reality, they are inaccurate conclusions that are based upon fear and rationalizations. The only way to really know what we are capable of doing is to try doing something, and if you really are incapable, you will find out...otherwise, you are just limiting yourself before you even try.


    Any additional comments?

    A no-nonsense book that deals with becoming a better man, and as a result, a more attractive man to women. Men and women are different, but also similar. Both are wired by attraction, but attraction is different for men and women. This book helps you to understand those differences, and use them to your advantage, while at the same time becoming a more healthy man. I would also recommend this book to women as well, as much of it is psychological principles of self-esteem and growth which are universal, but which men must know to be considered attractive to women; women will only become more wise and able to select a good man with this knowledge, as well as help their own lives apart from men.

    "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.

    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!!
