I find Magic Bullets to be very shallow, uninspiring and conveying all the wrong mindsets.

Savoy, the author, has a view of pick-up which is kind of like accounting: he can list down all the rules and add up all the numbers. To continue this analogy, I believe pick-up is more like pure mathematics. It's so much more than just adding and subtracting, it's whole field of philosophy and theories.

The book does cover a wide range of topics (e.g. everything from logistics to stripper game). However each of these topics is covered briefly, and without much mention of the overall strategy and philosophy, nor many concrete tactics.

Instead, the overall vibe of the book is that the girl won't like you unless you convince her otherwise with what you say. By putting such a large focus on the words you use this book made my game worse and actually increased my approach anxiety.

Nonetheless, there are a few good tips here and there which I took away from this book. Hence I gave it a 4/10 for effectiveness.

If you are looking for a routines-based book I would recommend "Revelation" by Mystery et al., because it has many of the same teachings (the "what") but also explains the "why" and the "how" much better. However, for a novice I wouldn't recommend either book, instead I would suggest something that covers the fundamental concepts and tactics better, e.g. "Double your Dating".
