Book List

January 14, 2009

This should have you covered…

What I have noticed lately on the PUA/seduction front is that there has been a definite shift towards getting your mindset right as that is what you automatically project in your words and body language (most of the time without you being aware of it).


More people are also unlocking the power of hypnotherapy and subconscious autosuggestion. One of the pioneers of this field was Milton H. Erickson.

I think we are very far from properly understanding the subconscious mind but I’m sure most people who are familiar with this topic will agree that the subconscious mind is powerful beyond belief and your key to unlimited success in any field you choose.


Here is a list of books that I would suggest reading if you want to get to the source of what most of today’s inner game psychology and techniques are based on:
