>but I always can rationalise that different situations require different approaches
This is the main criticism of Greene's approach, he has one approach, and if it doesn't work, you'll look mental. Alt righters like this approach because they can blame others for not following the rules instead of having to analyse their own personality. It's also a book that, if read in the right way, can excuse or even encourage all sorts of social atrocities. "I'm not being a racist cunt, I'm just keeping you in suspended terror!"
It's essentially quite a valid guide for becoming, or at least playacting, the 'alpha', but really nobody actually wants that other than weird redpillers. Social success and therefore influence is about having a balanced and somewhat pliable personality, not a one track party piece about being a strong leader.
The best criticism of the book is to read it while imagining how you'd actually react if someone else was behaving this way towards you.
