 About the Book 

Most guys who join the Pickup Community just want to be normal.Like the cool boy in high school who had a girlfriend.But we’re brainwashed.We start to believe that we have to do tons of “approaches” before can sleep with a girl. Human interaction is — so we’re told — complicated.Life becomes all about going out, trying to improve social skills we already have, and getting laid with women we don’t necessarily like.What started as self-improvement, becomes a rat race.As we’re desperately trying to become “better”, we move further and further away from that normal cool guy we set out to become...In Rite of Passage, we accompany an ego-ridden young man on his descent into a vicious cycle of Pickup and self-help, and watch him burn in a fire of temporary validation, until he is finally resurrected as the man he always wanted to be.It’s a true story that will take you from the provinces of Germany into the Australian Outback, the Filippino countryside, the megacities of Japan, and eventually to Sweden- into shady nightclubs, full busses and trains, backpacker hostels, universities, and posh upscale neighborhoods- into many a girl’s pants, and into the ass of a male Filippino movie star.The tragic comedy will inspire you to question your ideal of masculinity — and encourage you to emancipate yourself from self-help dogma.You will feel ruthlessly entertained, disgusted, happy, and sad. But more than anything, you’ll deeply identify with this young man’s search for meaning.It’s different from anything that has ever been written about the game — brutally honest, critical, and touching.
