OK, so here’s my take –
The Good: practical tips from start till finish on how to deal with a woman in order to make her quit her drama and mind games. Uses a lot of hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming (although he doesn’t call it that) – surprisingly jargon free material although things can get technical at times. Genuinely original stuff which I’ve never seen before (I have pretty much every program which is based on hypnosis) and the ideas can be too novel even for an old hand like me. The routines are legit but they do require some practice before using them. Another good thing is that you can readily use them OUTSIDE your dating life and reap the benefits too. It’s really not just a dating course, it’s a persuasion and influence course. I won’t compare him to Cialdini, but his concepts work rather well also in a generic setting (not just dating).
The Bad: Relies too much on Neuro Linguistic Programming and hypnosis, and much less on being natural. You may sound too robotic spewing these routines if not careful. Some may believe that it’s a magic bullet but it’s not. Set your expectations right. These skills need to be learned, and learned the hard way. Also, another bad point is that while there is a quick start section, the full course have a lot of videos and you’ll need to devote some time to go through ALL of them in order to make them work for you. The program won’t work on a piecemeal basis. You must understand EVERYTHING to make even one routine work for you.
My Experience Using The Product In Real Life: Like I said, I’m a hypnosis nut, and I know what’s legit when I see it. Shogun Method is legit, although it takes some work to make it, well, work. Beats many other programs on the same premise (Neuro Linguistic Programming and hypnosis) which I’d rather not name.
My Verdict: Lots of common sense stuff wrapped around persuasion/influence concepts. Requires work – it won’t just magically get the woman you want. Set your expectations right and you will reap the benefits. Not for aspiring “pickup artists” as it won’t help you chat up a woman on the dance floor on a dingy club. I like it, but understand that it just doesn’t fit a lot of people.
