Neil Strauss made himself into a well-known pickup artist.
NEW YORK (AP) — If you want to meet Neil Strauss, you have go to a bar. You just have to. That’s his territory.
Strauss, you see, has spent the past two years turning himself into one of the best pickup artists in the world. He’s gotten so good that he even teaches others.
“I can get any guy to go up to the most unapproachable, stunning girl and make her interested, make her laugh and make her love him,” he says.
Make no mistake: Strauss, a Rolling Stone writer who has ghost written books by Motley Crue and porn star Jenna Jameson, is not particularly gorgeous. With his shaved head, goatee and slender frame, he resembles an emaciated Howie Mandel.

“I’m messing up the genetic code,” he says with a laugh. CNN.com – How to pick up girls – Oct 5, 2005
