He moved on to The Village Voice, where he did everything from copy-editing to fact-checking before becoming a regular reporter and critic.
to become a music critic at The New York Times where he wrote the Pop Life column and front-page stories on Wal-Mart's CD-editing policies, music censorship, radio payola, and the lost wax figures of country-music stars.
After leaving The New York Times to ghostwrite Jenna Jameson's memoirs, Strauss joined a sub-culture of pick-up artists known as the seduction community, creating the persona of "Style" in 2001 In 2005, he published The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists (Regan Books, 2005), a book about his transformation into "Style", a pickup artist under the tutelage of Mystery.
In addition to documenting his experiences with pickup artists like Mystery, Steve P, Rasputin (Hypnotica), Ross Jeffries, and numerous others, it also describes his seductive interactions with celebrities including Britney Spears, Tom Cruise, and Courtney Love.
I’ve only seen (maybe) 20 minutes of him on You Tube.
As part of an assignment for Rolling Stone Magazine he studied the pick up community and in the process became a PUA himself, thus proving their teachings and methodologies!I’m often asked which celebrities I think would be great with women. His monster bestseller, The 4 Hour Workweek is sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read.I try to think of the men I reckon would definitely get laid like crazy even if they had no fame, money or looks. But, from what I’ve seen in those short videos I’d think Tim Ferris would still get plenty of action if he was ugly and unemployed.So, I’ve explained or expanded upon many of his great points for you. Do not put all of your romantic and sexual hopes and energy into one girl. Tim Ferris goes much further than I would by saying, ‘be absolutely certain it’s going somewhere definitive’ before you hop on the monogamy train. – ‘I never go to clubs and bars to find a girl’ The ‘hardest possible place to pick up a girl’. – ‘Diversify your identity’ Learn some skills, try new things, improve yourself. Date lots of girls unapologetically until you are sure you’ve found one who is high quality monogamous girlfriend material. – ‘Timing and environment more powerful than method’ Where you look is often more important than how you look. Bars and clubs are a really dumb place to meet women for 95% of guys.
