Do you freeze up when you see an attractive girl? Do you run out of things to say? Do you struggle to attract women through conversation? It doesn't have to be this way. What if you could effortlessly strike up a conversation with any woman, at any time, in any environment? What if you knew exactly how to keep the conversation going (so you never ran out of things to say)? What if you could command women's attention and instantly connect with them? What if you could turn any conversation from boring to sexual?

Considering all the great reviews, I honestly expected to give David Perrotta’s Conversation Casanova a big Five Star bouquet. And to be fair, CC is not without merit. There are a few but sparse good tips interwoven in the material, earning my Two Stars. I didn’t even mind that Mr. Perrotta shamelessly plugs his website and father’s comedy act. When I heard his braggadocio about “living the dream” as an international playboy in Mexico it seemed tediously hyperbolic to me.
That said I would be remiss if I didn’t mention a few more of CC’s shortcomings:
(1) The taxing narration sounded like it was recorded in an echo chamber or musty basement on a laptop. Don’t anticipate anything that resembles a professional recording.
(2) Mr. Perrotta was shooting for a world record on how many times he could shoehorn the word “random” in his book, and I think he got it.
(3) Many of the conversation “techniques” offered up by Mr. Perrotta may be mildly effective on some young inexperienced women. But a 40 year old educated woman would see these conversation ploys as transparent pretentious attempts to bag her, resulting in the opposite of the intended effect.
(4) Mr. Perrotta PAINFULLY labors to be politically correct. David, tell it like it is—some women can and do run a game on men. No mention that women have more diabolical weapons at their disposal and some will use them freely to ensnare a “Conversation Casanova.”
While no one would reasonably dare compare David Perrotta’s literary skills with that of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, or Feodor Dostoevsky he does try in an overall uneven spotty effort. He would indeed profit from a skilled professional editor. I cannot recommend CC to a serious sophisticated swordsman, when there are much better choices like Robert Green’s Art of Seduction. I can recommend Conversation Casanova to a high school-er looking for a prom date.
