Emergency by Neil Strauss is available today in the US.
The price for the book went down and it is now only $10.19 at Amazon.
I received my review copy last Thursday and it is a sharp looking book. Whoever designs Neil’s books deserves a cookie.
So far I’ve read the first 50 pages and it appears to follow the same formula as The Game just using “survival” as a theme instead of “pickup”.
The book starts out with Neil realizing he is a total pussy who was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth…
As Y2K, 9/11 and other events arise he gets more paranoid and decides he needs to learn some survival skills in case the Apocalypse comes.
Just as he meets different PUA’s in The Game; he meets different cults, survivalists and wackos and documents the more interesting parts of the interactions in this book.
And just as he becomes mPUA extraordinaire in The Game; I can only imagine he becomes Rambo by the climax of this book. I predict that at the end he’ll realize that he has become overly paranoid and he’ll shed the camouflage, grab his old Gucci suit from the back of his walk in closet and take a limo to Madeo to meet up with Dave Navarro for some din-din and Cristal… but he’ll still retain his learned survival skills in the back of his mind!
If you like The Game, you’ll probably like Emergency. It follows the patented Neil Strauss nonfiction formula. I like survival shows like Man vs. Wild and Survivorman but I still have to admit this topic isn’t nearly as interesting to me as “pickup”…
I write a pickup blog… so go figure!
I predict in his next book Neil will learn how to become a MMA fighter …or maybe a WWE wrestler!
Remember… You heard it here first boys and girls!
