As a man, when you decide that you want to express your romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman, how do you go about communicating those desires and interests to her?
Do you communicate your desires and interests to women in a cautious, vague, ambiguous, or "beat around the bush" manner?
Do you avoid approaching women and avoid initiating conversations with women altogether?
Do you regularly cheat on your wife or girlfriend behind her back?
Are you currently filled with so much bitterness, misogyny, and resentment toward women that you have no desire whatsoever to even interact with them?
In the audiobook version of Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking, author and professional dating coach Alan Roger Currie describes and examines what he refers to as the "Four Modes of Verbal Communication".
Currie makes the strong argument in his audiobook that the most effective interpersonal communication style that a man can exhibit with a woman is MODE ONE behavior, which represents when a man expresses his romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman in a manner that is bold, highly self-assured, up front, specific, and straightforwardly honest.
Currie harshly criticizes the idea of men maintaining disingenuous platonic friendships with women (what Currie refers to as "FunClubbin"), and he also points out that many men and women tend to exhibit behavior that is very duplicitous, dishonest, disingenuous, misleading, and manipulative when interacting with members of the opposite sex in today's dating scene.
Currie invites his male listeners to take notes while listening to each and every chapter (preprinted notes are available at http://www.modeone.net/journal/).

A must listen to audio book for both men and women
First, I would warn my friends that Alan uses some "choice words" at times (profanity, X-rated language), but that aside, this is a very enlightening and entertaining audiobook. I have listened to Alan's popular podcast show on BlogTalkRadio, and his interviews are always worth listening to. Matter of fact, he includes excerpts from his two podcast programs in the audiobook. Alan does not mince words while offering advice to men on how to be more successful with women.
Most women prefer to have a long-term romantic and sex partner, but in this day and age, casual sex is also quite common. Alan offers some advice that I believe even most women would agree with, which is stop lying to women about what you really want (sex) and quit manipulating women's emotions to get what you want (again, sex). Women hate men who are liars, cheaters, and game-players!!
Author Alan Roger Currie speaks with a lot of conviction. You can tell that Alan has had more than his fair share of dating and sexual experiences with women. My only minor criticisms would be that Alan loves to really hammer down certain points of his (he repeats certain points as many as 3 or 4 times!) and as mentioned, he does use profanity and X-rated language in certain portions. I would not allow someone under 17 or 18 years of age to listen unless supervised by an adult
The audiobook content is definitely for men, but I genuinely enjoyed listening to it from a woman's point of view too. The main message seems to be, if you want to spark romantic interest in a woman, you have to have the courage and confidence to at least approach her and initiate a conversation with her.If you want to take it a step further and persuade a woman to indulge in more casual sex with you, then you really have to show women that you have a nice pair of big brass balls!! (women love super-confident men!)Chapter 10 (or what really should be listed as Chapter 8) is the marquee chapter. I am now going to be on the lookout for men who behave in Mode 2, Mode 3, or Mode 4 instead of Mode 1.
Alan is going to ask you to take a LOT of notes while listening. Women who listen can pretty much ignore the note-taking exercises, but I would suggest that the men take as many notes as possible. (Alan has some pre-printed notes available on his website)I think the audiobook is a good listen for BOTH sexes. Alan does not teach any methods or techniques that are deceitful or manipulative in nature, which is why he earned my respect as a woman. His teachings centre on bold, upfront, balls out honesty with women. And either women say Yay or Nay. If a woman says "Nay," Alan suggests you just simply move on to the next woman of interest. I think the audiobook is an excellent listen for even a woman!!
