"Meh...."

Firstly there are no real world examples in this book. It is unfounded and based on speculation. There is a lot of "my friend said..." or "other people who have..." But there are no testimonials or anything like that.

I will agree that some of the information is valid, but this book is a waste of time really. In the last chapter there is a summary of the whole book in 7 easy guidelines to follow... to which he ripped off another book.

Suggest, buy the other book...

The problem with this book is that it is badly written and he repeats the same point. I sometimes had to make sure i was indeed turning the page, since I had read the same paragraph 4 or 5 times before in different sections of the book.

Mode One is good in theory, but there is no advice on how to introduce yourself in a mode one fashion or provided examples of it working.

In... theory... will attemp my own version of Mode One. Lets see how that goes.

"This is a Must Read"

This is a must read for any aspiring ladies man! It's very direct but since applying I've been hopping in the sack with women more than usual!

"Being Direct Works!"

Mode One has been a real inspiration to me ever since I read it. I completely agree with Alan about starting off my interactions with women I find attractive by just being honest, instead of trying to befriend them or "currie favour" (haha) with them and then trying to get in there later. Girls really don't like that and now that I just tell girls I'm interested in them from the beginning, my "blowouts" are girls who aren't interested but still respect my confidence and are very polite and nice about it, and my successes are far more numerous than they ever were before, with many incredibly beautiful women! Thank you Alan!

"Damn...What a wake up call."

As many have said, "Mode One is the Bible on being direct."

It's incredible how such simple concepts can seem so foreign. The idea of "Just telling Women what you're really thinking" almost seemed impossible to me; not because doing so was immoral or because I was afraid to, but because a lifetime of socialization had told me that doing the opposite would be more "appropriate".

Like many men who were raised in a middle-class Christian family, I was trained to be a liar when it came to women. "Pleasantly Phony" was my middle name. Looking back, I can't believe how afraid I was of conflict and disapproval. All of my decisions were based on how I felt others would perceive or judge me.

I've come to see that there's nothing wrong with telling a woman exactly what's on your mind. The beauty of the Mode One philosophy is that it corrects your way of thinking, rather than introducing you to the newest, most "psychologically proven" techniques, routines or gimmicks. When you have the correct mindset, your words are there to express your intent. You don't have to think about what to say beforehand, and you can choose to express yourself in whatever way feels right. If you're going out and saying exactly what Alan does in the book, and you don't feel comfortable doing so, then you've probably missed the entire point.

What can I say? When I see a woman that I'd like to have sex with, I go and tell her. I get rejected 80% of the time, but the rejections are short and sweet. As for the other 20%... I think you know where I'm going with this ;)

Mooooooooooooooddddddee Oooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnne!!!!

"Become the REAL YOU"

I dislike people who lie. Not only to other people, but also to themselves. I always looked at guys who wanted to sleep with a girl for some days or weeks pretending that they wanted to be their next "boyfriend", until she get in their bed. And after that they broke up with the girl and she will become an angry woman who dispised men. To me, lying was the worst thing a men can do. But I kept reading all this "indirect" methods of seduction that essentialy say: "YOU HAVE TO LIE TO A WOMAN IN ORDER TO GET HER INTO YOUR BED, AND AFTER YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT DITCH HER!!"

I was having an internal fight between my values and principles, and the suppoused effectiveness of lying methods. Until I read Mode One. Mode One is completely different. This book is about HONESTY, and doesn´t have even a bit of lies or manipulation. It will help you realize what you are lacking in your behaviour towards women. Each chapter is a guide to the core of what makes your behaviour WEAK and INEFFECTIVE. It will provide you with ways to overcome YOUR FEARS. To become BOLD, to become STRAIGHTFORWARD. To become a true MAN. The kind of man who doesn´t need to lie to get what he wants in the way he wants it.

It is not an OVERNIGHT seduction magic book. If you are searching for that, go buy a PICK UP guru merchandise. If you are TIRED of all the lies and manipulation, tired of lying to yourself and tired of wasting TIME and MONEY on WOMEN, doing things that you REALLY don´t want to do... THEN THIS IS THE BOOK YOU NEED.

There is an old saying that to attract a woman you just need to be yourself. Mode One teaches you how to be your REAL self.

"Mostly good."

This book is about being direct and honest with women. It advocates non manipulative approach as a tool to prevent yourself from being manipulated.

Alan Roger Currie and others have had a positive impact on my life. Looking back at who I was and the things I use to let women do to me. Women I was with walking on me without me all the time.......

But there are Three problems with the whole community that has the mindset discussed in this book. Note before I begin, Alan doesn't actually state what I'm about to discuss, this is simply my experience when dealing with others who have implemented this mindset. And so there is no confusion, I implement Alan's mindset in my life with success, it appears Alan does too.


EVERYONE MANIPULATES.
Everyone uses forms of manipulations even if they don't know they are using it. The most anyone can ever come to honesty is to state their agenda, then go after that agenda. Like when I take women to several different Venues, and Kino escalate. My approach could have been "You look so fucking sexy, lets go out for drinks" But rarely ever tell a women that I am Bouncing to make it easier for me to sleep with her. Even when Alan tells everyone in his seminars about PuaHATE.com bashing him, this is a form of manipulation. Everyone does it whether they know it our not. On occasion I meet people who get extra angry when they are accused of being a manipulator, they have a Thin Skin about being criticized by others, which is the opposite of what Alan talks about.


I DON'T HAVE TO TRY IN LIFE, NO NEED FOR SKILLS.
Also I have met many people who are upfront, but don't try to build any skill what so ever. I get away with so much in life and all while being honest, but others who try it fail. And when I recommend they try to increase their skill, all they say is, "No, that is what honesty is for!" Honesty by the way, is not an excuse for laziness.


ANGER AS A PATTERN
And last there is that crowd who believes they should express their negativity whenever it appears. This cause a pattern and I can't tell you how many grumpy as shit HONEST men who are always negative about every little thing. Life for them seems a struggle.


Alan's book is no very organized in general, so if he mentioned one of these three, then I apologize, but these are the commonalities I find with people who apply this book and Radical Honesty.

"Best book on Dating Out There"

The Mode One method is not an easy one to get your head round, neither is it easy to implement. But it is effective and it is the right way to do things. The next time a girl flakes on you and you don't know why. Or the next time a girl pisses you off think of this book.

With the Mode One method you put your intentions out front and yes, you get rejected, but getting rejected up front hurts a lot less than getting rejected after weeks of 'wining and dining.'

If you're fed up of women having the power, if you're fed up of not being honest or not saying what you really think then this is the book for you.

While other books teach you to respond to a woman's cues and look for what she wants, Alan teaches you to be a man and go for what you want. And what he teaches means that you'll actually get it as well.

"straight to the truth"

Mr. Currie THANK YOU,THANK YOU,......... a book that should be reqiured reading for all guys. Mr. Currie's later books are more detailed but needs more description on how to impliment his style of approaching. He does state that you must develope your own style, but the vast majority of guys have been brainwashed by Madison Ave. and social programing that they need training wheels to calibrate their style. The reason for reading the book was that woman where Mode One with me and I thought they were cock teasing and I failed to follow thought :( No more mode two timid for me the woman are in for a surprise! Thanks Again Mr. Currie
