READ ME

Are you that weak?

You're just going to allow yourself to get ordered around like that? You see the words “read me” at the top of a page, and you just follow the instructions like a robot?

I know what you're thinking: This is a book. You're supposed to read it.

But the book hasn't even started. Did you read the copyright information? Probably not. (If you did, welcome to the club. They make medicine for people like us.)

As long as you're here, though, I'd like to teach you your first lesson, which is to think for yourself. Not to just slavishly turn the pages of a book like a follower.

Because this isn't an ordinary book, meant to be read from front to back.

You have options.

If you're here to read, turn to
The Style Diaries
, which begin about two thirds of the way into the book, for stories compiled from my journals.

If you're here to learn, start with the first part of the book,
The Stylelife Challenge
, for a workout program for your social and dating skills. Then, whenever you're in the mood, dip into
The Style Diaries
for stories about the benefits and consequences of the knowledge you're accumulating.

If you need additional training wheels to help find just the right words to say, I've added
The Routines Collection
specifically for this new edition of the book. It's a compendium of word-for-word scripts of some of the most requested material I used while learning to put a permanent end to years of lonely nights.

And if you're just browsing through this book in a store for a quick tip on meeting someone new, tear out this page and fold it into a paper plane. Then
throw it into the next aisle. You may do the same with all the following pages, until you meet someone special, most likely a security guard or police officer.

Finally, I'd like to take back what I said at the beginning of this section. You're not weak. I just wanted to get your attention. And bullying always seems to work best.

So perhaps it's time for your second lesson: The secret to life is not to take it personally. The things people do and say are not always about you. Usually they're about their own fears.

Thanks for reading…

THE STYLELIFE CHALLENGE

 

THE TEMPTATION TO READ THIS BOOK COVER TO COVER
IN A FEW SITTINGS MAY BE STRONG.

THAT'S NORMALLY HOW BOOKS WORK.

NOT THIS ONE.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ONE DAY AT A TIME.
STUDY THE ATTACHED BRIEFINGS.
PERFORM THE FIELD MISSIONS.

AND DO NOT SKIP AHEAD.

MISSING A SINGLE LESSON OR EXPERIENCE WILL AFFECT
YOUR RESULTS, YOUR GAME, YOUR LIFE.

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

FEEDBACK FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS IN THE STYLELIFE CHALLENGE

“All I have to say about the Challenge is, ‘Wow.' Before this month, I had never approached a woman or been on a date. I just had three dates in three days, and I have more numbers to follow up on.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: DIABOLICAL

“This Challenge has been the most inspirational month in my entire life. I feel like I've achieved so much! Taking into account that all of this happened in just thirty days makes it unbelievable!!! Seriously, this was the only area in my life that kept me from being absolutely at peace or absolutely happy: women!”

—CHALLENGER NAME: TONY23

“Since the Challenge, I've heard I am a winner, amazing, perfect, one of a kind, her soul mate, and unbelievable! Thanks, Neil, for the Challenge!”

—CHALLENGER NAME: GODROCK73

“This is one of the best things I have ever participated in… It has been lifechanging.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: MAIDENMAN

“I've gotten more great responses from girls this week than I've ever had in my whole life. People I know are already telling me I'm different and charismatic now.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: SAMX

“I already have a girlfriend, and I have no problems with girls. So why did I do the Challenge? Self-improvement. I must say, it has been an incredible boost, both to my self-confidence and to how others see me. I work as a waiter, and now customers are asking for me, girls are constantly approaching me, my tips are much bigger, and people want me to join their parties all the time. Everyone wants to be with me and in my inner circle, and everyone notices how good I feel about myself—and it wasn't like this before.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: RACEHORSE

“She was French-kissing me and asking if she could see me when she gets back on Tuesday. I can't wait. She's not only beautiful but smart and kind. Were it not for Neil and the Stylelife Challenge, this never would have happened.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: APOLLO

“Neil Strauss has given me a gift of life. I can't describe anything better. Just thanks.”

—CHALLENGERNAME: LIZARD

“Waking up each morning is a treat since I started the Challenge. I have a certain excitement about me, like a child on Christmas morning getting ready to open presents, as I march upstairs to my office to see what's next for today. It's really an experience I'll never forget.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: REIGN STORM

“This has been one of the most incredible experiences I have had in my entire life. Thank you so much for literally changing my whole life.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: BOY

“This is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! I am so far out of my comfort zone, words can't describe it! And I'm having more and more fun!”

—CHALLENGER NAME: GRINDER73

“I have done a lot of what I would consider to be intense things in my life, but in a way, this beats just about anything I've done, because it is literally changing my own perception of reality and what is in the realm of possibility for me. I would like to live the Stylelife Challenge every month.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: LPIE

“Thank you, Neil… You'll be remembered for this forever. This is not just another book or a seminar. This is a really big deal!! One day I'll shake your hand and find a way to really thank you for changing my life!”

—CHALLENGER NAME: GRAND

“Neil, thanks a lot for this life-changing experience… Your efforts have had a great impact on my life. Not only will I use the information that I learned in my love life but also in all other aspects of my life.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: BYRON

“To be honest, I never thought Neil was going to pull this off. I mean, successfully breaking down the seduction game in thirty steps isn't exactly the easiest thing to do. But Neil did an awesome job. Great material. Great people. Great results.”

—CHALLENGER NAME: VELOS

“I have read plenty of dating books and seduction manuals. I think the material presented in the Stylelife Challenge is simply the best of the lot. Kudos to Neil for offering the best.”
