Be careful, maybe find some inner peace and self love and save yourself a lengthy life lesson

This book is a dangerous book if you read it with a brittle mind.
I have no issues what so ever with the opposite sex, I got this book purely to see if it could reinforce certain beliefs and bring new valuable information , and it does...

But not all of it is accurate , most of it is opinionated and juvenile.
There is some great content in regards to male empowerment that I feel is valuable and much needed but it’s laced with content that can unnecessarily warp your brain and ultimately burden you unnecessarily.

Take it all with a grain of salt , as soon as something doesn’t rub you the right way take note of it and keep listening, make sure you form your own opinion but question your own opinions at the end of it all.

Women aren’t as complex as this book makes out, man aren’t as repressed and poor done by as this book would impress upon you.

There is a world where all of these problems and pitfalls simply don’t exist , get to that place, once you figure out your personal issues that you have with YOURSELF, most of the content will be abit sad.... this is a view point, in it there lyes good information and information that is relative only to certain people in certain situations, don’t let this material become a text book, it’s not based on anything beyond observations and opinions which will be found to be flawed and short sighted, and will only serve to further burden your life if you take to it like a Sacred text... good luck.

Solid Concepts. Terrible Narration.

Despite the solid and important concepts, the narration made this book almost unlistenable to. It was read by a synthetic narration robot, or somebody with a voice just like one. It got annoying very quickly and stayed that way until the end, which often distracted from the message. I suggest buying the physical version unless you really can't spare the time. The narration hurts the head at the same time as the concepts described expand it.

Satire: How to Build Ego Like Trump for Dummies

The authors End Game here is to convince you to wear a mask of egocenticity (self-interest 24/7).

If you follow this advice, you will be LESS, like you. You'll become another shade of Chameleon - ruthlessly judgemental, detached, without scrupals. Too easy!

Welcome to an Elite whoremongering club - who's claim to fame is exchange of bodily fluid, and at all costs, lie about it, in the event you come across a class act... A trustworthy, respectful, intelligent, kind hearted person. Really? Good, Lord!

You never know Ladies - your love interest could be the Town Bike and everyone BUT you, knows that. You, poor Dear. (See "Micro-expressions", John Gottman) #Manosphere

If sleeze IS your thing - You could join adult websites instead? Go nuts!
Instead of pretending to be something you're not.
And then what?
You'll be addicted to yet, something else. In need of dedicated therapy to undo your infamous memories that won't magically detach from your subconscious.

I realise, the porn industry prays upon clueless lonely guys, and this is no exception. You are led by "a Blogger" off a cliff of debauchery. (In the real world, the prostitute - paid for sex, is NOT the Fool.)

So, IF in buying this book you hope to score a hawt body to be your Soul Mate through counter-scheming mind-games...and believing your thoughts to be rational. That is, in fact, a "relationship" of One, guys.

In the 50s it was called, Trying, before buying... But the Rules of Nature will NEVER change... SEX IS chemical addiction (natures love potion) for up to 2 years. By then you will blame others for the double bind you are faced with, yet again. Repeating your pattern of clueless, immature, egotism.

As we are all human, resistance to expressing and feeling emotions magnifys them. Eventually, the reflection of your Egos mirror will crack before your very eyes and you'll realise the truth that must be said, to the person it must be said to, is from your Adult Self, to your fragmented, ignorant, child Self. Who, effing waits for you to rescue them. Acknowlege what they feel, forgive them, accept them, and Thank them for getting you through tough times.

Under no one else's instruction, do we ever Grow Up, until we have a gentle conversation with our child's ego, and give ourselves the LOVE we wished our caregivers had given us.

Don't buy this if you're not open minded.

First off, there are some good points in here. I wouldn't call them facts, but for the sake of gender based debates they provide interesting arguments and I'd agree with a lot of the points to a degree.

However based on the language and concepts, I'd say the book/this guy's whole deal takes advantage of the "betas". The whole philosophy of it seems to mainly apply to guys who have trouble with girls/relationships and it picks on their insecurities - providing the "solution". Afterall, that would be the majority market for this kind of stuff.

Nothing wrong with that, but I just think the target audience is a vulnerable one. Guys buy into the whole - "I have to be an alpha shit" pretty easily without even considering that behaviour is exactly the opposite of how an "alpha" should act.

Overall there's many flaws in the arguments and it makes a bit of a joke of science at some points and you probably won't be too impressed with the author. BUT equally it's worth a read for men and women regardless of political views and relationships - assuming you aren't quick to join or oppose the opinions.

Listened to this entire book overnight - riveting

Must read prior to marriage and dating women. Completely demystifies why many women cheat with bad alpha types and marry nice guys or use them shamelessly as placeholders and why many women have no remorse in dumping a nice guy who invested all his time and recources thinking authentic sex and affection can be bargained for with a woman. Why women can become completely unreasonable/heartless and how the governments and courts have become completely gynocentric and support injustice towarda men

Best Men’s Book

This is the best men’s book I have ever read/listened to, and I have read many.

This is a must for any man to listen to, with an open mind.

An essential read for every guy!

I bet i am not the first to say this should be mandatory reading for guys. That the information in this book is focused on a man developing himself rather than focusing on the attraction of the opposite sex makes this book gold to me

Only a clueless moron would agree with this

The Rational Male - like other pickup-esque content, is just describing aspects of normal social interaction that everyone agrees on, and then tacking on a crazy conspiracy about women.
