Looking for insight, found nothing but hate.
Being advertised to me as a life altering, mind blowing work of insight, a real must read for all men looking to understand women, I downloaded this work onto my kindle the moment I could. However, what I thought would be an enlightening read turned out to be the textual manifestation of all the toxic bile that has plagued the men’s rights movement and pickup community. It plays off of the anger, the hurt, the fear, and the paranoia of the so called “nice guy.” In reality this is little more than the author’s extended manifesto on how much he hates women.
According to this book, women are nothing more than manipulative gold diggers that are good for nothing other than producing children. It establishes the paradox in which women are stupider then men, and yet at the same time some how much more clever than men allowing them to control all guys who even say “hello.” Women here are not people, they are objects and they are property, things to conquer and obtain. Her only value is in the form of her youth and in her beauty. The only way for a woman to be happy is if that happiness comes in the form of a big strong man. Yet even if she finds love and happiness, she is destined to try and ruin her life and the life of her family because she is a woman and that’s just what they do…
Now I have been a part of the pickup community for a while now. As a result I have studied a lot of its literature, read a wide arrangement of scientific studies and research into human behavior and psychology, have spent hours upon hours researching human history, and spent just as much time if not more into improving both myself and my way of life. I've watched the growth and change within the community, seen teachers and coaches rise and fall, ideas and methods change, and seen the potential good that it can do. This book disgusts me for that very reason. As I said it is little more than the textual manifestation of all the negativity and anger towards women that gives the community a bad name. This is the kind of thinking that gives the men’s rights movement the label of a hate group, this is the kind of stuff that gives a bad image to a PUA, and this is the kind of stuff that can get people killed.
In the wake of the Elliot Rodgers incident, we as men cannot allow for this kind of mentality to be propagated. Anyone who reads this as a sort of new testament of masculinity is only perpetuating this kind of hate. Gender identity and understanding is messed up enough as is in the western world, this kind of writing only adds fuel to the fire and encourages greater divides between people. I have no doubt that I have read much of the same material as the author has, though he does not clearly list his sources, yet the conclusions that he reaches, the theories that he gives, and the rational and argument behind all of it is deeply flawed by his own bias and hate against those with a double X chromosome.
While my review might be ill met by many who already believe in this way, claiming that I have taken some kind of blue pill and stayed in dream land, let me put it this way. I've been through the rabbit hole, and this is not the red pill or even the blue pill, this is a cyanide capsule. Gentlemen, this is not a book that is pro men, but anti women. And one reformed nice guy to another, you will find no real understanding of women to be had here.
