What book has spawned the Male Self-Improvement Movement and has celebrities like Shia LeBeouf (“Transformers”), Lauren “L.C.” Conrad (“The Hills”), David Faustino ("Married with Children") and Corin Nemec ("Parker Lewis Can't Lose"), frustrated teenagers, thirty-year-old virgins, divorced businessmen, and even rock stars looking for dating advice? Neil Strauss, the Rolling Stone writer who brought the art of the “pick-up” to men worldwide with the controversial book “The Game,” is back on the NY Times’ Bestseller list yet again with the highly successful tome “Rules of the Game.” Cracking the list at #7, “Rules” continues to climb the charts and is now at #5 after only a month since its December debut.

Celebrating a whirlwind book tour this winter, Strauss’ signings and appearances have been sold out to jam-packed audiences worldwide with hundreds of fans lining up for a chance to meet the author at each event, including a standing-room-only speech at Cambridge University in the UK, which has boasted such esteemed speakers as Nelson Mandella and the Dalai Lama. Cambridge officials praised Strauss for his “erudite” speech.

“Rules of the Game: Master the Game in 30 Days” (Harper Paperbacks/An Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers; Hardcover; December 18, 2007; $24.95) is a two-volume set of dating lessons from the five-time New York Times best-selling author. The Stylelife Challenge, the first volume, is an easy-to-follow guide to the basics of approaching and attracting women. Within 30 days, Strauss challenges his readers to get a date by following a month-long workout program to perfect their dating, attraction and social skills. The Style Diaries, the second volume, features eleven parable-like stories in the style of “The Game,” offering lessons about the dangers of the seduction lifestyle based on Strauss’s own experience.
