Tucker Max meets Neil Strauss in Get Laid or Die Trying

Get Laid or Die Trying is the story of one man’s year-long, utterly shameless and insanely successful quest to get laid or die trying. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of pickup techniques gleaned from an underground society dedicated to the art of seduction, Jeff Allen careens through San Francisco, leaving a trail of threesomes, strippers and one-night stands in his wake. His shocking memoir strips away the myths of modern courtship, revealing the stark, unvarnished truth of the entire game.

Highlights include:

  • Attracting the girl you want by sleeping with all of her friends
  • Getting into the pants of the hottest girl at the party—a total stranger—in less than thirty minutes
  • Deflecting last-minute resistance with a single word
  • Pulling a chick who is surrounded by ten jealous guys
  • Cutting out enormous dudes that could easily pound you to a “fine red mist”

Move over Tucker Max, Allen is the original pickup artist, the man whose outrageous personal experiences spawned an entire genre of bestselling books.

Why weight?

Simon and Schuster has two new books that can help you achieve your weight loss goals.

First off is Geneen Roth’s Women, Food, and God. If you suffer about your relationship with food — you eat too much or too little, think about what you will eat constantly or try not to think about it at all — you can be free. Geneen’s basic concept is that the way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. Your relationship with food is an exact mirror of your feelings about love, fear, anger, meaning, transformation and, yes, even God. But it doesn’t stop there. Geneen shows how going beyond both the food and feelings takes you deeper into realms of spirit and soul to the bright center of your own life.

Check out Geneen’s fantastic interview with Oprah in O Magazine.
