The Starbucks Barista

I walk to the Starbucks near my Dad’s house at least six days a week. I’ve gotten to know most of the baristas there and they’ve gotten to know me as the laptop guy who wakes up really late. One of the baristas is a 19-year-old college student who is like the somewhat legal drinking age brother I’ll never have. He’s chatty, outgoing, and likes having casual sex with girls, so I figure he’d like Bang. I gave him a copy because I want to turn him into an unstoppable player force. He emailed me the other day:

ROOSH, can i just first and foremost say, I started reading ur book and it is fucking AMAZING. Seriously its as helpful as it is HILARIOUS. Its so good that I have been reading it to all my friends and family as they come into the room. I carry it around everywhere in my backpack when i go out and its still in it’s original bag… i value it so much lol. I’ve been jumping around the book because i cannot control my excited little self as i read the book, my eyes cannot help but wonder to other pages. I was thinking to myself, “Shit, i am going to read this book slowly and savor this work of art masterpiece so it will last longer. i am going to be disappointed when i stop reading.”

See the positive effect I have on today’s youth? :thumbup:

A second review comes from Mike Forster. He adds a professional touch by using my last name.

[Roosh] attacks the female psyche like a scientist, using the scientific method to try hundreds of possible moves on his way to developing his plan for success for even the most acne-clad Dungeons and Dragons fans out there. He has clearly spent his entire adult life honing his “game,” and the reader is the beneficiary with this excellent book. He uses metaphors and relatable analogies to make all his points crystal clear, outlining what should be the obvious, but for many helpless guys passes as new material. His frank talk about sex is refreshing and well-needed in a society in which openness about any sort of sexual activity or desires is censored from the public discourse. The book is also funny at times, with my particular favorite moment being his analogy that if a girl resists one of your moves in the bedroom, act like your character just died in a video game and simply hit the “restart” button.

Thanks Mike!

A little later he complained that the book could have been longer. I’ve heard this from a couple people and I think it could be because the page count doesn’t account for the large page size and small text. Or maybe it’s a fast read because my writing is just so buttery smooth. :surprised:

If I was able to read Bang when I was 19 I would probably be a very different person now. In a good way, too. (Probably.)

Hi Roosh,

I’m happy you’re getting such great reviews. I’m a book reviewer myself and asked my go-to girl to get the book from you.

I heard you’re sending it and I can’t wait to get it and shoot off my thoughts onto the interweb.

Sorry, I’m not a dude and won’t be able to practice your preaching but I’ll give an honest opinion. How’s that?
