Alpha Seed Beta Need

A page turner that will make you question everything!

This book may seem just another story about a guy who wants to pick up women at first look. However, I guess that analysis can happen as a defense mechanism against our own repressed desires and inferiority complex, which makes us unconsciously compete with the main character!

The style of Mark’s writing is really captivating because it makes you feel in the character’s shoes. You feel with him, you wonder with him, and you suffer with him!

The main character stood out for me because after the first impression of a “guy who has a lot of intercourse,” you can see a sensible man fighting for his son, trying to have a decent life. However, throughout his journey of dating many women, he truly is interested in understanding women, how they think and how they feel. And he never lies!

This book indeed makes you question many things about romantic relationships and what men and women want (even if that’s not what they say!)

Testimonials

Definitely different

This is unlike any book I’ve ever read. This book is written in the style of a first person POV telling the story of his life, and it is so convincing you will feel like it is all fact with no fiction.
It is constantly entertaining as the main character goes on a date every night to catalog pick up responses and sexual dynamics. Yet it is more. It is also the ups and downs of his life.
The title refers to women’s need to be attracted to a strong alpha type but settle down with a calm beta type who will be sweet.
This book is interesting the whole way through, and even if it isn’t your normal cup of tea, I think you’ll be sucked in immediately.
Worth the price. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something original, applicable, sexy, and different.

The honesty is hard-core.

I don’t know what to expect when I started reading but soon became pleasantly surprised at the candidness of the author. To open up and tell the whole truth takes a lot of courage!

The writing in the memoir is very friendly, almost conversational, on just about every page, with lots of profanities. That is quirky in some moments, though It makes Van Stratum appear vulgar and borderline unappealing in other moments.

I would say this biography was a very entertaining read. Van Stratum has plenty of advice to give his readers, most of which is simplistic, but may not be convenient.

Kudos to you sir, for sharing your story despite your life’s unflattering aspects. Sometimes inspiring, shocking but I’ll never forget a story this great. A must read.

– King RayRay

This is a story about struggle, life problems, balancing everything, falling down and getting right back up a million times. It is the life story of a man who never got where he wanted but, with work and perseverance, was able to finally live a great, happy and successful life. I could relate to the book in the sense of living a harsh life especially in my young adult years.
I was never understood by my peers, I could never fit in, I was always the last one to be able to afford this or that. I didn’t do drugs nor committed any crimes but, in all honesty, I was not far from it a few times. I’m not embarrassed to say that now, as I’m through all those tough situations.
It is a great thing to be able to read about the life of a man who’s been extremely down in the dark and somehow managed to create his own life, rather than look for it somewhere else. Understanding his struggle and his battles with not just drugs but himself, his biggest enemy when the hardest times hit him. This is why it’s so beautiful being able to see different perspectives of the same story, the struggle of a life that’s dealt unfairly but comes together as rewarding in the end of things.

– Danielle

Amazing read, especially if you’re in a tough situation or come from a rough background. The story is a true demonstration of the concept that everything is mental & we control much more than we realize. What Mark has overcome and achieved is truly inspirational. The book is a fun action packed adventure that kept me flipping through the pages. As I read for the stories, I got some seriously valuable life lessons. Most of the self help books I read are theory or broken up examples and I learn a ton, but don’t put a lot of it into action, in fact I mostly read them for the unconscious effect I know those types of books have on my mind. Reading through this connected story of lessons, growth, and friendships has actually inspired me to make some changes in my life. Most inspirational book I’ve read in the past 2 years.

Captivating Love Tale

This book had me turning page after page. The title and concept behind the book got me started thinking about how women choose a mate. It could definitely explain a few failed relationships.
I am also really intrigued by body language and actually learned a new thing or two while reading about Mark’s heated “research”.

– Lara

Crazy Hot Book!

This is porn at its finest. The story was intriguing and the sexual escapades kept me reading way too late into the night. The author has hit on something so bold and so brazen that the reader is left helpless but to keep reading. Elizabeth T. McKinney

– Elizabeth T. McKinney

This book had three aspects. First, you learn where the author is from and how it shaped him. You also learn how getting away from where he was fun reshaped him. This is a good lesson and hopefully encourages readers to look at where the are from, where they are, and where they want to be. Overall, it was a good aspect of the book.
The second part is basically about the author learning and than teaching men who to pick up women. Some of this might be seen as unethical. I mean, it borders on tricking women. But it recommends nothing illegal, and well, it works. I also liked this aspect. Then final aspect is how the author made millions. Again, there was nothing really illegal about it, but it’s morally questionable. This was probably my least favorite part of the book, but some people will probably find it useful. Overall, I’m very glad I read this book.

This is a must-read book for anyone who needs the motivation to change their life to move in a new direction and become addicted to great things! The book starts off with a bang and had me hooked from the start! Some of the stories are quite humorous and had me laughing out loud. I love the author’s frank, clever and humorous writing style. Lots of stories of drug use and curse words used throughout but that’s one of the reasons I loved this book! Mark doesn’t sugar coat any of it or beat around the bush! This is a personal story of growing up on the wrong side of the tracks and getting into addictive behavior and getting caught up in the wrong crowd. This is not just a story of stealing, fighting and drug use ,it moves into a new direction where the author realizes that the physical world around us is a physical manifestation of the choices we make and the mindset we have. If we don’t change our choices and beliefs then nothing around us ever changes! If the author can come from the kind of background described in the book and completely turn his life around then we can all do that! This book inspired me to think greater and grander things are always there to be had; one just has to change their choices and mindset! Even as a female, I enjoyed the author’s stories of picking up women in bars! I actually learned some things myself!!! Wow, who knew??? I highly recommend this book to everyone!!!

– CA Smith

Gritty and shocking, this is a very real, powerful and inspirational story of someone who started life on the wrong side of the tracks and who fell into the pitfalls often associated with such impoverished beginnings: drugs, fighting, theft; but then realized it was up to him to choose to turn it all around. Admirably, he accomplished just that. There were a few words used incorrectly but that is such an insignificant part of the book that while I noticed them, they didn’t bother me. Overall, I very much enjoyed the candid, conversational style of writing. Mark has my admiration for making lemonade from lemons and for being candid about his journey.
