Dating apps like Tinder and Bumble have made finding someone to go on a date with as simple as ordering socks on Amazon, but besides the ease of finding a potential mate, the dating world, romance, and relationships in general remain just as baffling as before, if not even more so. Swiping through hundreds of potential mates can often leave men wondering if there is something wrong with them, or if there is something wrong with everyone else. The real answer is: they’re going about it all wrong. The world has changed, relationships have changed, gender roles have changed, and the way men engage with women must change too.
Believe it or not, it is possible to be yourself, have fun, court women, get dates, have sex, and have meaningful relationships without acting like a dick. In his new book, Josh Raab will tell you how in this part self-help book, part memoir.
In How to be a Player (in the Age of Feminism) Raab picks apart what it means to be a man in 2019, how to maximize your success on dating apps and first dates, and how to assemble the love life you want and deserve—whether that’s nightly orgies, the suburban dream with white picket fences, or both at the same time!

Josh Raab is a book editor, musician, and author. He started his publishing career running a Kickstarter-funded, experimental literary magazine and website called theNewerYork. After five years, The New Yorker magazine sent a cease and desist order claiming the name infringed on theirs and forced him out of business. While in operation, theNewerYork published 10 books; had subscribers and fans such as Margaret Atwood, Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket), and Mark Z. Danielewski; featured work by thousands of authors and artists; and hosted numerous interactive literary events.
Raab was a board member of the Emmy Award–winning production company The Industry, and served as dramaturg (story editor) in the production of Hopscotch, a mobile opera that took place in over 20 limousines driving around Los Angeles with a cast of over 100 actors, singers, and musicians. The show received rave reviews in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post.
Subsequently, Raab worked as a book editor and producer at Melcher Media in New York City, collaborating with Vice President Al Gore, Neil Patrick Harris, Netflix, Garth Brooks, and others. His books have millions of copies in print, including a New York Times bestseller and several Amazon bestsellers.
He now lives in Los Angeles, plays piano, writes songs, and edits and produces books for clients around the world.
