For nearly a year now, one of the most popular books in the pickup and seduction game has been Joshua Pellicer’s The Tao Of Badass: Everything You Have to Know to Be a Complete Badass With Women. This The Tao of Badass review will give you the scoop on this book before you buy it so that you can figure out whether it’s something worth your time and money.
When it comes down to it, you’ve probably heard the mantra before: nice guys finish last and women love bad men. Even though it goes against logic, you always hear and see girls you know constantly falling for guys who simply aren’t good for them. They don’t treat the girls well and sometimes even tell them they’re not interested – and lo and behold, the girls end up wanting them even more.
This mentality can only go so far since you don’t want to be a scumbag, but guys like these inadvertently have a trait that women absolutely go nuts for – they’re badasses, as Joshua Pellicer would say. The problem I’ve always found in life is that even though I knew that this type of situation does exist, I’d always run into two problems:
1. It didn’t feel right to be mean in any way; I’m a nice guy.
2. I couldn’t do it naturally. I’d always stumble when I tried and found myself reverting right back to my usual ways.
Pellicer completely gets that and seems like he’s the same kind of person who struggled in the same way throughout his life. This is probably the single best thing this book has going for it. He connects with you in a way where you’ll find yourself nodding your head in agreement as you read through the book and his logic.
Women are great at reading emotions. They can see right through you when you’re nervous, insecure, or disingenuous. One of the biggest points made in The Tao Of Badass is that you need to work on your inner game (self confidence and overall happiness) before your outer game will begin to shine. Josh Pellicer spends a lot of time teaching you how to built up that inner confidence. Without it, your badass skills will really only go so far. This in itself is one of the most valuable teachings in the book.
Part of the key to being a likable badass is having the sense of humor and soft spot that women swoon for – but it’s all about creating the right balance and with the tactics taught in The Tao Of Badass, you’ll learn how to strike that balance when you’re interacting with any women you come across. Too much badass and you’ll be labeled a dick. Not enough, and you’re stuck in the friend zone. It’s so key to strike that balance.
The skills you’ll learn about can obviously be used for pickup situations and one night stands, but they’re also just as useable for anyone who’s more interested in a long-term relationship. A lot of the philosophy here is built around a long-term outlook – these aren’t “skills” that go bad after a night or a few dates. For that reason, you’ll really be well equipped to carry these skills for the rest of your life.
The one thing I will say is that no matter how much you read and how much you learn, it all comes down to you in the end. Acting on what you learn takes some guts, and you’d be wasting your money if you don’t think you’ll do much with this information – but if you do, there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll be very pleased with what you’ve learned here. Not a bad investment for the cost of a date.
There’s definitely an art to attracting women. It seems sometimes that some people are just born with it, while others aren’t. We’ve all envied certain men throughout our lives, mainly for the ability to lure in girls who we’d love to have a shot at ourselves. How do they do this and why does it come so easy to them? Part of the allure has to do with the fact that, whether knowingly or not, these alpha males are typically exhibiting the following traits. Here are four things to try to implement yourself that all should make a difference.
1. Don’t tell gorgeous women you meet how beautiful they are.
They’re all used to hearing these things day after day. It’s not to say that they don’t like it, but they’ve heard it all by now. If you give them more of the same, you’ll likely be overlooked and thrown into the pool of drooling men that they’ll shrug off on a daily basis. Think about it from their point of view and offer them something different. Act as if they’re no big deal and they’ll sense your confidence automatically.
2. Don’t use pickup lines.
The days of pickup lines are long gone. They’re seen as trite, cheesy, and downright pathetic sometimes. While it’s great to use humor (more on this in a second), an opening one-liner will merely scream “creep” to her.
3. Use humor to your advantage.
As they say, laughter is the key to a woman’s heart. The more you can make them smile, the more likely they are to immediately associate these positive feelings with you. A sense of humor tells her that you’re confident, quick witted, and generally upbeat. Who doesn’t like those traits?
4. Use your female friends to your advantage.
Do you have any female friends? Even if they’re ones you’re romantically interested in but stuck in the friend zone with, you’re missing out on the bigger opportunity here. An endorsement from a female friend to her own friends is the best possible kind you can get. Start going out with her on a completely friendly level and you’ll immediately enjoy the benefits of being pursed by her friends. Who knows, maybe she’ll even grow jealous as she sees you flirting with them.
