I just wrapped up reading Conversation Casanova: How to Effortlessly Start Conversations and Flirt Like a Pro” by Dave Perrotta.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. The author points out a lot of things that most men do to be unsuccessful with women. He encourages you to take more shots which in turn improves your skills and success rate. Most guys are so gun shy that they don’t have many opportunities to begin with or are constantly blowing their chances with the same dumb tactics. Its not just looks and success that matters to women. I personally have you some of the tips from this book on my wife to try to get unique interactions out of her.
Main takeaways: Take responsibility for your own life. You don’t need the approval of anyone to feel complete. You shouldn’t make women your number one priority and should have a mission outside of women. Initiating conversation can be done by ridding yourself of reasons not to approach and reframing your mindset. The concept of sexy flirting is needed to instantly remove yourself from possibility of being friend zoned. Middle of the playmaking 101 course explains the purpose of building a connection after initially engaging someone in a conversation through allowing the woman to talk about herself and asking the right questions. Showing you how to captivate your audience by sharing attractive qualities about yourself, baiting the individual, and learning how to story tell well. The book wraps up by pointing out that if you don’t love women it will be exposed eventually through your interactions with them. A person should eliminate their reasons for loving a woman and gives examples on how to do it. Additionally, there are a list of 20 great questions at end of the book for using in conversations.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give this book at 8. I believe this book is a good as any book you will read about how to approach women. However, I don’t think you can give a dating/attraction type book at 10 because effectiveness of the advice is still subjective. Maybe a 9 would have been provided if the author gave more examples of his personal experiences using the tactics and or provided case studies of other guys.
