Between the two, Get Laid or Die Trying is better but, honestly, they both suck. What is up with the trashy trailer park level cover design? Who are you trying to sell to, social rejects on 4chan or regular people out in the world? IMHO, the “Sex. Drugs. Karaoke.” on the cover of Nine Ball was golden. Says everything you need to know about the book without being overly explicit. The field reports, to most people, are just going to be some bizarre story. Trying to put it in the ‘pick up’ frame is a massive mistake because all you are doing is pigeon holing the entire book into the genre you are trying to escape. I don’t want to pretend I am Don Draper or anything, but there seems to be some fundamental flaws in how you are approaching the marketing for going mainstream. And like Dr. Dre said, a successful product is 80% amazing marketing and 20% product quality.

I don't think Dr. Dre was the first to say this.  Dre, the marketing genius.  haha

I think the cover could do with some infield photos, give it a grungy real life look. Get laid or Die Trying sounds cliche but I think it still talks to guys on some level, you think, yeah, I like this guys attitude, I wana find out more about how he thinks.

I like the Get laid or die trying more.
Either that or the quote out of the book in my avatar.

I prefer Date F__ Win because "Get Laid or Die Trying" sounds like something lairfags would say.

The design looks too web 2.0/icanhazcheezburger and corny. I could do better myself.



Wuhaha, how gangster is that.


I'd like to see one with a Jeffy mug morphed into Beast from X-Man. Luring in the shadows. Approach-raping a girl from behind with "Get me laid or die crying".

Just finished reading the book. If you are nine ball fans, you have gotta buy this jeffy book. It is unique, crazy, and you will learn a lot from it. Pickup in its purest form.
