The following is the pitch author W. Anton sent to the Riverfront Times, a less culturally sophisticated version of the Village Voice, here in the STL. They chose to mock him. I might have to flip through a copy of this book the next time I'm in a Borders, just in case, if they carry it at Borders, and if Borders hasn't already gone out of business.
(Never mind the asterisks. Those are just the parts the girls at the RFT found especially ridiculous.)
Beautiful Women Want to Spend the Night With You!
FINALLY - A REGULAR GUY'S GUIDE TO GETTING THE GIRL!
W. Anton is every guy's worst nightmare. He's not a rock star nor is he particularly wealthy. His looks wouldn't land him on the cover of Men's Vogue* or Sports Illustrated**. But if he walks into a club in LA or anywhere else for that matter, chances are he'll leave with the most beautiful woman in the room.***
He has a secret weapon that every successful lady's man knows. Here's a hint; it has nothing to do with size. Not the size of your hedge fund, your pickup truck tires or your...well, you know.
"It really boils down to fear and how we deal with it," Anton says. In his new book, The Manual: What Women Want and How to Give It to Them, Anton examines the root causes of male insecurity and how best to overcome -- or avoid -- them in the pursuit of beautiful women.
"Most men set up self-imposed barriers and dwell within tiny comfort zones that absolutely limit their ability to talk to women," he says. "What comes out is either false bravado or self-deprecating insecurity. Neither works. Never did. Never will. Not at least for the man who wants to spend the night with the most beautiful woman in the room."
In a very provocative interview, Anton will discuss:
* The absolute, no-doubt-about-it, foolproof (this means you, awkward boy) way to ask a beautiful woman for what you REALLY want
* Why being awkward with women is no excuse to sit at home - alone - and complain about the women that rejected you
* How to turn a first encounter into a sexual encounter
* The classic mistakes men make when trying to pick up women
"My approach to seduction is simple," he says. "I teach men how to give women what they want**** -- what they have always wanted, and in turn guys get what they want -- sex."
When he's not meeting beautiful women, W. Anton is an expert in online games' production processes. He is currently on assignment in Asia. While not married, Anton says he hasn't been single for several years. To learn more, visit him at www.W-Anton.com. The Manual: What Women Want and How to Give It to Them is available at Amazon.com.
