Becoming a ladies man, or pickup artist, takes lots of practice and experience. To make the journey a little easier, I’ve made a list of the best pickup artist books. If you’re new to the pickup artist community, I recommend starting with the book that brought the pickup artist community into the spotlight. The Game by Neil Strauss is the first book I read on picking up women and I highly recommend it. My list of the best PUA books also includes acclaimed pickup artist authors such as Mystery, Logan Edwards, Nick Andrews, Ross Jeffries, Savoy, and more. If you have any suggestions or comments email by clicking on the contact page.
There’s more to becoming a pickup artist than mastering seduction. A desirable man is confident, successful, and knows to how please a woman pyhsically. To help in those areas I’ve gathered some of my favorite books on sex, psychology, NLP, self-improvement, and success. Having a strong grasp in these areas will make the road to becoming a pickup artist a bit easier.
