Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the bestselling author and journalist, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the last decade—guaranteed to change the lives of men and transform the way women understand the opposite sex forever.

On his journey from AFC (average frustrated chump) to PUA (pick-up artist) to PUG (pick-up guru), Strauss not only shares scores of original seduction techniques but also has unforgettable encounters with the likes of Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Heidi Fleiss, and Courtney Love. And then things really start to get strange—and passions lead to betrayals lead to violence. The Game is the story of one man's transformation from frog to prince to prisoner in the most unforgettable book of this generation.

I liked this book, and for a Myers book, it was very cheery, but I have to admit I don't understand/care for basketball, so I think that it would be better for someone who really was interested in the sport.read more

Senior Andrew Lawson knows that he has great basketball skills- enough to see the team to a championship and get a scholarship to go to college. However, when two new players join the team and get the coach's attention, Drew has to learn to keep his cool and play like a team.One of the main themes in the story is determination. Drew is determined to make good choices, unlike so many young men in his Harlem neighborhood. He knows he does not want to hang out with the wrong people like his friend's brother who ended up in jail. He is also determined to win the basketball championship and be chosen to play at a college. His dream is to be a NBA player, but for right now, he has to focus on one game at a time. Drew must learn to deal with his frustration and disappointment when his coach focuses his attention on the new players, otherwise he could mess up his chances at playing ball in college. Although he knows he has to be a team player who can be coached, he finds it difficult to understand his coach's choices and get along with his teammates. He learns that he must get along with his team, but does not have to be best friends with all of them. Throughout the story, Drew continues to mature, although he is sometimes messes up. This is a great book for those who like basketball, those who want to read about a story about not giving up, and for those who are interested in the power of individual choices.

I read 218/218This book is about a teenage boy named Drew who knows he is not very smart but is trying to use his ball playing skills to get him into a good college. This book takes place in Harlem and during a time where boys his age end up on the street and or dead. At first his basketball team is struggling to win and he isn't starting no more but as soon as his coach changes it up and lets him start again his team starts winning again. The main character is Drew and he is a 6'5" African-American Senior. He and his family are close and pretty much get along and he is friends with everyone on the team. He helps out his mom and listens to his annoying little sister and is a stay out of trouble character. In the beginning he hates his coach because he was changing up their game plan and sitting him for a white kid named Thomas. In the end he becomes friends with Thomas and gets closer with his coach and starts to understand his view point. The reason why I like Walter Dean Myers book's is because I can relate to most of his main characters. I also am close with my family and try my best to always make my mom's life easier and I also like to play basketball. I relate to him because a lot of boys my age are getting in trouble in I try to avoid the bad situations just like Drew. I can't really recall on anything I didn't like about this book because I am a very picky person about what books I choose and the book I choose usually ends up becoming one of my favorites. Although, the one thing I didn't like about this book is I wish it was longer. I would recommend this book to sports/basketball fans or Seniors that are going through the same problem about what colleges to go to. I would recommend this book to those type of people because this book is mainly a sports book with some off the court drama. If someone were to play this character in a movie I would want it to be me because I like the personality of the character and wouldn't mind being in a movie. Also I think I could almost fit the physical requirements of the main character especially his height.
