4.0 out of 5 stars Morpheus in the Otherworld 29 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rollo Tomassi is one of the Big Names and Elders of the Manosphere. But before you read his advice and theories, here's some context.

In the UK, forty per cent of marriages end in divorce over a twenty year period, and thirty per cent of marriages end in divorce within ten years. Almost one in three children are raised in single-parent families, of which 85% are headed by the woman: nearly 5m boys and girls are growing up without even the presence of a father-figure, and it's been that way since the mid-1990's (UK Labour Force Survey 2012). One out of the next three twenty-somethings you meet won't know what it is to have a man in the home. At the other end of the scale, 10%-20% of married couples under 50 have perfunctory, once-a-month-or-less sex lives (Kinsey 2010) right alongside 60% or so of under-29 single men.

Sounds terrible, a society in the course of destroying itself.

Except that there are 11m boys and girls growing up in functional two-parent families, parents who, to judge by the statistic that over half the married couples under 59 have sex on a weekly basis, are in decent, mutually satisfying relationships. So the glass is more than half-full, not broken on the floor.

More than half the world is Normal and has a reasonably satisfactory life, and the remaining fair chunk is some kind of mess that can range from a mild lack of social skills to the nightmare of a violent bi-polar partner. What doesn't come out in the numbers is that the two worlds rarely intersect: Normals raised in functioning households almost only ever associate with other Normals who were raised in functioning households.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital Reading Material 22 Oct 2013
Great book, should be required reading for every man aged 14 and over. Once you read this book you cannot unlearn the information contained within, and you'll begin to observe things like Social Conventions and Hypergamy in your day-to-day business. Wish this had been released earlier in my life.

Tomassi writes in a sophisticated, but easy to follow style, and the specific chapters make sure everything is relatively well-ordered. Perhaps could have done with a better proof-read, but this is not a serious issue.

4.5/5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different view 18 Nov 2013
By Cylux
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Due to circumstances I won't bother to lay out, I became interested in hearing about what a lot of the concepts the so called 'manosphere' promulgate with the blog of the Rational Male being highlighted as a good first place to look. He has a book? Awesome! Makes my life easier. Anyway The book itself is mainly a collection of his first year of blogging with a bit of extra commentary here and there, unfortunately this proves to be the book's main weak point - ostensibly this book is aimed at the uninitiated (which I was) but frequently it casually throws in potentially alien concepts, like Game, discussed in a fashion that the reader knows full well what he's referring to for a significant length of the book, before he finally gets around to explaining just what the hell said concept actually is. There's also a bit of egregious editing early on in the book where a whole paragraph is repeated in the transition between chapters, which raises questions as to how qualified his proof reader was. I feel he might have been better served crafting a narrative from his available material than doing a copy-paste from his blog output.

And better served he would be because if you're able to persevere with the book it quickly becomes fascinating, it truly is a different way of looking at the world which, no doubt to the chagrin of others, does appear to be quite valid. There's even the danger that Rollo's observations and attendant theories make sense of the 'Feminist Sex Wars' to the point that their happening was an easily predicted foregone conclusion, because Hypergamy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Profound, enlightening, life changing 11 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I firmly believe that there should be a campaign for this to be compulsory reading for all school children, judges, political people etc.....Only then will we truly live in an equal society consciously aware of both sexes differences and not this feminine tragedy of a society where men sublimely exist in pain and ache for their god given right to be masculine a put society right were common sense and intelligence prevail....who knows maybe things could work properly again or maybe even better, another decade more of this frightens me, it's all so pathetic. Until then if your a man cling to it like it was your personal bible before they get it burned :)
