Tao of Badass Review – Is It Still Worth the Money?


  • If you are just getting started with pickup, this product will be a great starting point for you. It goes into detail about a lot of theoretical material about why pickup will work for you and why it will get you a lot of success with women. It also goes into detail about how you can define your “why”. Everyone has a reason why they get into pickup. This product helps you understand that.
  • Tao of Badass caters to everyone, including people that have visual and auditory issues. So you can download an audiobook version of the entire course if you just hate reading or if you have any eyesight issues.
  • You get immediate access to the program as soon as you make the payment. On top of that, you also get access to an active community where they continuously publish new bonus material that includes instructional videos as well.
  • They also have a live chat feature where you can ask any urgent questions that you might have about the product.
  • While most dating products only focus on pickup and hooking up with women, Tao of Badass goes into detail about relationship advice as well. This gave me a breath of fresh air because most of us are looking to get into a long-term relationship with a beautiful girl (the right one at least).
  • They go into detail about Tests and Body Language, the two topics that interest me the most. But the thing that stood out to me the most was them using practical examples about how you can apply the theory.



  • As you might have already guessed, there is a lot of content to consume. Over 150 pages in total. So if you are not a fast reader, or just don’t like reading at all, you can download the audiobook version and consume the info that way. But buckle up because it is going to take you a decent amount of time to consume all the info.
  • In various parts of the book, I felt like it needed more practical examples to get the point across, or at least for me to understand how the theory would apply. Things like using banter to demonstrate high value. But this is where Joshua points out that the Members Only Area is where you can find a ton of practical examples of the theories explained in the book.
  • If you are an advanced guy that is looking for advice that you can use to approach HB10’s in the clubs or bars, then you will need to refer to the Platinum Dating System by John Anthony Lifestyle or the Stealth Attraction Review (I’m currently working on a review for this one).

Now that you have the Pros and Cons of this product, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of it. And see what it really is about.

If you suffer from severe approach anxiety or having trouble continuing the conversation after the first couple of minutes, if you just struggle to get women back to your place, then this is the system for you.

The Tao of Badass is one of the most famous step-by-step systems for beginner guys who want to get good with girls very quickly.

A Rejection Proof System?

In the marketing material, they mention that they have a rejection proof system and over 95.7% of their online users have found success with women.

So, how many users do they have in their online community? Over 100,000 users.

That’s a crap ton of guys that are having success with their program. So naturally, that piqued my interest and I wanted to know more about what they teach in this program.

Is it some underground pick-up techniques and dating techniques to have incredible long-term relationships, or is it the same thing that almost every other dating program teaches, but Tao of Badass is just much better at after-sales support where they help guys through their unique situations?

I guess we’ll find out.

One thing you will notice once you buy their book is that they focus a lot on ‘pre selection’.

Their ideology is that you already need to be ‘that guy’ with women in order to have success with them. This makes sense to me because when have you ever seen a guy get the hottest girl in the room while being a keyboard warrior, obese, and having Cheetos crumbs falling out of their stomach? Never.

They go into the 3 most important parts in the book that gives you the keys to the kingdom so to speak –

  • Becoming an attractive man
  • A step-by-step system for picking up girls, and
  • Reading their body language to know when a girl likes you


Becoming An Attractive Man

Before I started reading this section, I already had an idea of what that means. I was thinking I need to have 6-pack abs, need to make at least 6-figures and I should be tall enough. And if I’m not tall enough, I will need to max out on the other 2 parts of being super attractive.

That’s what I was expecting to read.

The chapter starts with the gender roles and the importance of you accepting your masculinity. This was refreshing because I wasn’t even thinking about this at all. I was thinking about all the superficial stuff that most people bark about on Instagram and how you can only get matches on Tinder if you are over 6-feet tall.

In the chapter, they talk about why most guys end up in the friendzone in the first place. I’ll give you a hint – it is not because they didn’t have 6-pack abs or made 6-figures. It has to do with them fulfilling their gender roles. They didn’t do that and because of that, they fell into the friend zone.

Another word for not fulfilling gender roles is the ‘nice guy’. I also like to call it a syndrome.

If you are a beginner, this chapter will open your eyes to a lot of things that you didn’t even know you needed to know about. Maybe you have experienced being friend-zoned at least once or a couple of times in your life. This chapter will let you know what you did wrong.

The next chapter is all about building up your confidence.

This chapter is pretty much exactly what I expected it to be, I’m not gonna lie. You can watch some YouTube videos about boosting your confidence and you would basically be learning the same thing.

But confidence is important because if you are going to pick up girls, you need to make sure that you are oozing with confidence. Even if you are nervous af, at least being confident enough to tell the girls that you are nervous is much better than just pretending that you are an expert.

Joshua goes into some self-belief techniques that you can apply to increase your confidence. Definitely, something you can learn as a beginner.


A Step-by-Step System For Picking Up Girls

This is where the fun begins (or where the scare begins depending on how confident you are about picking up girls).

The good thing about the Tao of Badass is that Joshua knew that this is an important section of the book. So he dedicated an entire chapter to it to make sure that you have all the tools you need to get this thing sorted for you.

The first thing he goes into is approach anxiety. And let’s face it, we all have it. Even after 10 years of me approaching girls, I still feel some anxiety whenever I do this.

Back when I was starting out, my body would just freeze. I just wouldn’t be able to take another step in the girl’s direction until she was gone.

So it is nice to see that he focuses so much on approach anxiety.

And it makes sense because evolutionarily our brains are designed to not approach girls. Because back in the day, all beautiful girls would have already been taken by the alpha of that particular tribe. And if you were an outsider approaching that girl, you better make sure that she absolutely likes you because if you didn’t do a good job approaching her, and the alpha finds out about it, he would either kill you or you would have to fight till one of you dies.

And the other one would get all the females of the person who died.

So the approach anxiety does make sense. But in today’s day and age, things are much better. You don’t have to fight to the death if your approach isn’t good. And that is why you need to get rid of approach anxiety.

This is one of the sections of the chapter that I recommend reading multiple times because you will likely have approach anxiety as one of your biggest bottlenecks when it comes to picking up girls.

Once you go through that and are ready to approach, he goes into the ‘map of interaction’.

This is their step-by-step system for picking up girls.

Here are the steps:

  1. Attraction
  2. Rapport
  3. Seduction
  4. Relationship balance

According to Joshua, these are the 4 steps that are the code of the matrix. And once you start seeing the code,  you will know how to navigate it.

Here’s how he covers each stage of the pickup.



This is the phase where you have just introduced yourself to the girl. So now you want to build attraction by making the conversation playful. It doesn’t have to be anything of substance as long as it is fun for both of you, it should be alright.

In the book, he gives a ton of examples of how you can do that. This is a great thing because I’m assuming most beginners are like me who are introverts and suck at small-talk. Tao of Badass goes into detail about how you can use this initial stage of attraction to demonstrate that you are of high value to the girl while also making sure that you are not coming off as a douche who loves to brag about himself.

You can also ask qualifying questions which then opens up the possibility of her qualifying you.



This is the part where most people will fail because once you open a girl and get that initial banter going, things will start to slow down pretty quickly after that. She will either have to go very quickly or the conversation will become stale and you’ll have to awkwardly leave the conversation.

To avoid this, Joshua goes into detail about how you can use tons of open-ended questions to keep the conversation rolling and make it an emotional rollercoaster for the girl.

These questions will help you identify what her interests are and whether you guys have some chemistry and if you should take this any further.

Once you start approaching a lot of girls, you will realize that building rapport is one of the most important things about this whole process. If you don’t do this you might never see the girl again.



I found this section interesting because Josh goes over how women have what he calls a ‘red zone’ that enables them to quickly snap out of being seduced by someone.

He goes over some tips that you can use to avoid raising her red zone so much that she snaps out of it. And then you can sexually escalate with the seduction and have your chances of rejection go to almost zero percent.

To be honest, this sounds like an interesting idea but  I haven’t applied it myself. This is the first time I came across the ‘red zone’ concept.


Relationship Balance

Like I mentioned in the beginning, this is the point where most dating/pick-up programs would go into talking about techniques on how you can take the girls to your place. Or what to do on the first date so you can get laid asap.

Tao of Badass differentiates itself from those products by going into how you can have a balanced relationship with the girl. How you can take things further than the dates that you guys will be going on.

Josh goes into detail about the 4 most important factors that determine how strong and successful a relationship will be. And how you can make sure that you are hitting all those factors to make sure that your relationship is on a solid ground and not built out of a house of cards.

The Body Language and Knowing Whether a Girl Likes You Or Not

This is the part that piqued my interest because I’ve always been interested in what people do subconsciously that they aren’t aware of. That gives away their true intentions, always.

This is the section where you will learn about the positive and negative body languages. And how you can apply the right body language to make sure that when you approach a girl, the odds are stacked in your favor.

He also goes into detail about examples and explains how you can use the right body language in every situation. How you can calibrate your body language to your environment while also making sure that the girls will receive it positively and not get intimidated by it.

You will also learn how to look for cues that tell you if the girl you just approached is into you or not. This is crucial because if you can see that there is no attraction that the girl is feeling for you in the first couple of minutes of the interaction, you can cut it short and approach another girl.

But I have to warn you.

As a beginner, it will be hard for you to notice all the cues in the beginning because you will already be thinking about other things like the stages of interaction, how you can keep the conversation going, etc. but once you get in the habit of approaching girls at the drop of a hat, you will start to pick up on these little cues and be able to make quick decisions about whether the girl is feeling it or not.


Everything That You Get In The Tao of Badass System

Here’s a list of everything you will get once you buy the Tao of Badass system.

The Tao of Badass eBook – This is the 150 page eBook I was talking about. But you can also download it in Audiobook format to digest the info easily.

Training Videos – There’s over 50-minutes of content where Joshua goes into detail about things like demonstrating higher value, building rapport, escalation, qualification, etc.

The Body Language Master Course – This is a separate course where you will learn how to spot the cues of whether a girl is interested in your or not. Not just that, you will also become a pro at noticing on the date itself if you are going to get laid or not.

This is a 5-week course where you will get access to over 9 hours of webinars. This will give you in-depth info on what to look for in her body language to give you clues on when you should and shouldn’t escalate during the date or during your first approach.

Subliminal Inner Confidence Album – No this is not a rap album. It is a self-confidence album where Josh goes over how you can increase your confidence and be the guy that is always confident, no matter what situation he is in.

Hacking Attraction Video Course – Another course where Josh will teach you how you can work on your inner-self so you can eventually become the man that gets all the girls. Something similar to how Charlie Sheen was in Two and a Half Men. But with healthy relationships with all the girls that you will get.


Is The Tao of Badass Worth It?

At $67 you might think that this course is a bit pricey. But considering all the info and coaching you will be getting for that price, to me, it makes sense to give it a shot.

Especially as a beginner because I would want to cut short my learning curve by as much as possible. Trust me, the learning curve is not fun at all.

I know you cannot get rid of approach anxiety until you start actually approaching girls. And you won’t get any better with conversations until you start having conversations with a lot of girls. Frequently too. So it is all about muscle memory.

But know about the map that you can follow to reach where you want to go will make the whole thing a lot easier in my opinion. Once you know HOW to get there, all you will need to do is take the right steps, and eventually, you will reach your destination.

You won’t have to worry about whether you are progressing in the right direction or not.

Plus, you also get a 60-day money-back guarantee. So if you don’t like the course and all the additional products that you will be getting after 60-days, you can just get a refund and look for something else.

So, is this product worth all the hype and fame that it got?

To be honest, I think it is. But it is only worth it for the beginners like I mentioned above.

For beginners, the Tao of Badass will be an eye-opening course and it will put a lot of things in perspective. This is a perfect product to get your dating foundation on a solid footing so you can get to an intermediate or an advanced level very quickly.

Or if you happen to find someone worth spending the rest of your life with, well then congratulations! You hit the jackpot!
