The Rational Male is a rational and pragmatic approach to intergender dynamics and the social and psychological underpinnings of intergender relations. The book is the compiled, 10-year core writing of author/blogger Rollo Tomassi from therationalmale.com.
Rollo Tomassi is one of the leading voices in the globally growing, male-focused online consortium known as the "Manosphere". Outlined are the concepts of positive masculinity, the feminine imperative, plate theory, operative social conventions, and the core psychological theory behind game awareness and "red pill" ideology. Tomassi explains and outlines the principles of intergender social dynamics and foundational reasoning behind them.

I wish I had read this much earlier in life. The knowledge and understanding of how relationships actually work has been changed for ever. If I was to have a son, and could only give him one thing, it would be this book.
"Must read for any man"
A must read for any man whether single, divorced, or married. Learn the reasoning behind masculinity being viewed as negative, and how to combat this social dilemma.
I really enjoyed this lecture, it should be a mandatory text book for boys in primary school.
Great content, i recommend you to listen to it at 1.05x as it is a bit faster.
A little too conspiratorial but he makes good points. I think he tries to make sense of many unconscious behaviors displayed. by women but at the same time can be argued in multiple ways
"Rollo is the king"
Incredible. You're hilarious and you empowered the shit out of me. Pretty new to RedPill but would love to talk sometime. You should put Preventative Medicine on Audible as well - would love to hear more from you boss!
"the ultimate voice, the words every man must hear"
The one narration every man must apply in his own life! This has already changed my life
"This should be required for all males to read"
This book should be a required read for all boys/men to graduate high school. Mind blowing truth is spoken in this book.
"Highly, highly recommend!"
This book describes and helps you understand the sociological and psychological reason behind much of what is embedded in our culture in terms of masculinity and feminism.
I am a 22 year old male, in shape, single, and on a successful path in life, therefore I thought I was a prize to women but for some reason, the most of the women I was trying to get with "didn't see it" or I was (in my head) "too mature for they're linear cognitive functioning for our age". There are a few things I was completely missing. Half way through the book I felt my actions changing, mindset changing, and sure enough I have had positive results (I'll save the dirty details). I believe the main reason was that this book gave me the edge of confidence and slight change in mindset that I needed to make it work better for me.
I lacked the understanding of how women worked psychologically, and based my "game" off of the wrong concepts to appeal to women. I already had most of the characteristics necessary to appeal to women, however this book allowed me to do some necessary fine tuning to my 'game'. This book will make you look back and realize where you went wrong in past relations, and why women make the decisions they do, and take the actions they do; even if it seems it makes no since on a functional level.
"Every man needs this book."
I wish I had this book 20 years ago, it opened my eyes. Highly recommended.
"Will change your life"
This book is terribly organized but it is the best book on the market on the topic of understanding women
This is a must read book for any male of any age, I wish I had read this in my 20s, currently I'm 41 years old and it has helped me incredibly
"Life changing work on Relationships"
The Idea of the red pill and blue pill.
Realising why past relationships failed.
How in depth the books goes and the links to psychology.
The Game by Neil Strauss which was also a book that opened my eyes.
There are slight errors with audio where a take wasn't edited out, nothing that ruins it fortunately. The narration is great.
The Rational Male
Check it out!
"Must read to understand intergender dynamics"
Solid content. Rollo is an exceptional writer. And Sam has a great voice to narrate the contents
"every man needs to read this"
Every man needs to read this. Easily as important as the 48 laws of power. I come away from this educated with more understanding of my every day relationships.
"Being a better man."
Great book regarding male and female dynamics, not a "how to be" book but a book about ideas and how social engineering enslaves men by shaming.
