Last Update: May 23, 2019
FULL DETAILED REVIEW
What You Really GetNick Savoy and Speer do a good job of covering the most obvious situations that come up such as:
The content is focused on recovering from mistakes you've made. So they describe the typical mistakes, and how they come about. They do talk a bit about how to pre-empt mistakes so they don't come up in the first place, but primarily the discussion is on how to recover from mistakes.
Good Solid Practical and Effective AdviceThey hit the nail on the head with everything they go over. The advice is all practical and not very complicated to implement.
A lot of the advice has been well tested and represents popular approaches used by the majority of dating coaches to handle these issues. So it isn't all that innovative. If you've read a lot of dating advice don't expect too much new stuff, except for a few nuggets of gold. The value in this interview is that they've taken the best approaches to 'damage controlling' and packaged them into one short interview for you.
Don't Expect Too Much from Advice on FlakingWith respect to flaking, don't expect too much from the advice. They offer some good tips on what to do to recover the best, but it isn't likely to help you to recover more than in 10 or 20% of the situations. That isn't a reflection on their advice - it is just the nature of the issue of flaking, which is an issue you need to address pre-emptively.
For better flaking advice, that covers the important pre-empting part The Ultimate Guide to Text and Phone Game is currently the best product we've looked at.
More Structure Would Have Made it a Better ProductA minor fault is that the interview could have been structured better to make it easier to follow and ensure they hit all the points. It sounds pretty informal the way it is delivered. If they'd done this it would have turned out a top professional product.
The Bottom LineBecause the content is all about 'damage control', which is mostly relevant for beginners as they are learning and make more mistakes, and it is all practical - I'd recommend beginners get this product if they are consistently running into problems in the situations I've outlined above.
It will save you getting frustrated - it is a little pricy, but since it can provide you relief from that frustration - it's really a "no-brainer".

I would like to see ideas on those topics on a "relationship management" CD.

FULL DETAILED REVIEW
The structure of the interview is easy to follow. Savoy and Speer go through the different phases of the Emotional Progression Model (from opening to relationship management) to pinpoint instances where things could really go wrong, and in each instance, provide more than 5 ways to deal with it. Most of the advice/tips/insights are NOT found in any other products/interviews.
Here are some of the things I found very useful for me:
- how to know if you are really in "damage control" and when you really need it. There are various cases where you'd just have to follow the EPM and the advice given in Magic Bullets.
-the key principles of damage control. I learned that it's not about lines, but rather the mindset/guidelines that will also help you when you are NOT in damage control mode.
- What NOT to do when you are in damage control.
- Whenever "personal field tested lines/gambits" are given out by Savoy and Speer, they also explain the theories/techniques behind it, thus allowing you to know why they work. Sure, you could use those lines straight away and get results. But if you have internalized the principles behind them, would you not feel more confident going into any damage control situation and recover from it?
-how to deal with not opening/hooking, overnegging, awkward silences(running out of things to say), obstacles, the boyfriend line, bouncing, flaking and relationship management among others.
-how and when to apologize for your behavior.
