Art Of War - The Most Ancient PU Guides

Style: Hey, I thought Id make a recommendation for one of the most ancient PU guides: anyone ever read the Art of War by Sun Tzu in respect to SS? If you think about it, it totally works as a big analogy for strategizing a seduction.

For Example, he advises, before going to war, assess:

1. Moral influence (eg, values).
2. Weather (is the environment favorable to sarging?).
3. Terrain (what kind of HB are you dealing with).
4. Command.
5. Doctrine.

THEN he goes on to say: "Victory is the main object in war. If this is long delayed, weapons are blunted and morale depressed."

AND: "What is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy; next best is to disrupt his alliances...Thus, those skilled in war subdue the enemy without battle. They capture his cities without assaulting them, and overthrow his state without protracted operations."

Angelfire58: According to me, The Art of War is an inspiration, it's a tool of sorts. You need to imbibe most of the rules in your real life in order to be a successful man. It is the personality, the mental aspects of a human being that count a lot in SS and most of the aspects of life. Well it's just an addition to the other things u need to know. It's good. I really think you should read some of it if not all.

Alessandro: IMHO, if you read this book for chicks, you are out of the game. women supposed to be fun.

Style: For Alessandro and others who object to thinking of the art of war with seduction in mind, read it as an analogy: obviously, women are in no way enemies and seduction is not a war. But the Art of War is not really a war guide: it's a guide to strategy, which is exactly what this newsgroup is!

Maddman: My favorite passage has always been Know your enemy and know yourself, and in 100 battles you will have 100 victories.

Another that comes to mind is 'You must appear weak where you are strong, and strong where you are weak.'  This brings to mind the less flame filled PU and money thread - the millionaire who posted 'multimillionaire wants woman' and got NO responses, and toecutter who so elegantly pointed out that it should remain as background, something true about you, but you don't think you deserve women just because you have it - bonus points only.  That could be considered appearing weak where you are strong.

Appearing strong where you are weak is well covered in eliciting values - find out her end values and provide them, then the weakness is irrelevant (weakness being lack of money|height|car|status|looks|favorite excuse) because you provide the feeling she needs.

H. Lee Atwater: "To subdue the enemy without fighting is the greatest accomplishment."

Lilith: That's kind of a shame....sometimes the fight is more exhilarating than the prize. @2009 - The Ultimate Collection Of seduction Opener, Close Routines and Other seduction Tactics
