Unlike many of his counterparts in the “seduction community”, writer Neil Strauss has a career outside of men’s advice.
Strauss has worked as a writer for Rolling Stone magazine, a graphic novelist, even a ghostwriter for celebrities like Jenna Jameson and Marilyn Manson.
This is less method than psychology, and it is a fact that a person’s position in society can impact their attractiveness.
In fact, most of Strauss’ method which has been made public appears to skirt the line between a basic understanding of social psychology (“celebrities have routines to attract and deflect women akin to those found in the seduction community” – no kidding) and a New Age emphasis on basic hypnosis and the power of language.
However, as noted by many in the community, often a small alteration of an elder’s method can lead to great success, and Strauss appears to have benefited from his Method’s similarity to those of his teachers.
