Review of Group Attraction!

Hey guys,

As part of The 7 steps to Pickup Mastery Course, I'm going to be doing thorough monthly product reviews exclusively for my coaching students. I thought I'd let all of you guys in on the first one.

This is NOT an advertisment and there are NO affiliate links in the reviews, it's just an overview of what I think is a VERY useful product for guys just getting started.

So without further ado, here's my review...

When I was in San Diego a few weeks ago, Mehow was gracious enough to give me a copy of his brand new Group Attraction Manifesto, and I have to say it’s one of the most unique products I’ve ever seen.

The basis of TGAM resides in a shift of focus from target based game to a more group centric approach. The idea is a shift away from what’s commonly accepted as game within the community. Instead of going in and trying to attract one girl while befriending everyone else, you attract all the girls in the group. Group attraction focuses on a few different things that I’ll breakdown one at a time.

The first focus of Group Attraction is on Pure Kino. Pure Kino focuses on plowing the group with touching while spiking emotions at the same time. This is a way of running your entire “attraction phase” without the need for long drawn out stories or routines. It also helps you build a ton of compliance and allows you to quickly pump buying temperature through the roof. The most interesting thing about Pure Kino is the way Mehow has all of the touching and escalations timed out. I’ll talk more about that when we get to the section on DNA code next.

The DNA code is where Mehow breaks down every channel of subcommunication. From verbal inflection, to eye contact to touching. The DNA code tells you exactly what to subcommunicate and when. This is a revolutionary new way of teaching. I think this will be especially useful for guys who work in overly technical fields. With DNA code, you’ll know exactly what to do with all aspects of your communication channels, and more importantly what order to do it in. This allows you to have better delivery faster! In addition to improving delivery, the DNA code also helps with touching. By timing the release of touching to coincide witht the high points of emotional stimulation, you give yourself the best possible chance that the women will chase you! I do have one warning about the DNA code stuff, it can be a little challenging to understand in the beginning. It took me a couple of read throughs of the passages on it before I finally started to figure it out. Overall this is Mehow’s biggest contribution to the dating science community thus far. This level of notation really opens up what you can do as far as teaching is concerned.

Another great part of The Group Attraction Manifesto was the section on Mehow’s model of opening. Things have changed a bit since The Get The Girl Manual and the model now includes Group Love/Hate Teasing. Group love hate teasing takes the idea of teasing just the target and redirects it to the entire group without losing any of the effectiveness. The key to GLHT is in combining IOIs and IODs. This is key to any good tease as you always want to keep the girl and the group swinging between validation and devalidation as my buddy In10se always says. Mehow’s idea of “social “openers is a refreshing break from the monotony of opinion openers or the problems many beginners run into with direct. The great thing about social openers is that you can literally open every group in a venue with the same opener and everyone will just think you’re fun and social.

Mehow also includes a longer explanation of his “microloop” theory. This was one of the more interesting parts of the book to me as it expands on why and how compliance momentum builds. The best example of microloops can be seen in Mystery’s Bait-Hook-Reel-Release model for qualification. Mehow takes this a step further as he explains how microloops can be integrated into every human interaction. This part of the book alone is worth the price of the course for most guys just getting into the game.

As always the production quality of Mehow’s product is off the charts. The book looks AMAZING! Plus the models Mehow got for the cover and subsequent illustrations are super hot! One of the things I really like about Mehow is how thorough he is in quoting his sources. There are footnotes galore in TGAM, and he makes sure that everyone gets credit. Everyone who knows me has heard my thoughts on how many guys rip people off in the scene , and it’s refreshing to see someone go so far out of his way not to. There are a ton of diagrams and pictures illustrating the processes being described which really helps the reader understand what’s going on clearly and fluidly.

Overall I would recommend TGAM very highly to anyone whose just getting started in the game or really wants to work on getting their attraction phase handled. In a way this product is the opposite of Tim from RSD’s Flawless Natural in that this is really designed for the guys who have NO natural ability, and really need someone to step by step describe what to do, when to do it, and how to sound when you’re doing it! I can’t wait to read the second half and see the DVDS! Check it out yourself at Here

    I also recommend it, I think it is very useful, specially for certain type of students. You have to figure out how you learn best. To me such a superanalytical step by step approach doesn't work because it gets me too much into my head and I come off weird. Actually the best thing that really made my "attraction game" explode was your youtube video on attraction frames. Your 5 laws of pickup also helped a lot. Simple and effective.
