It works very well as a reference book, not reading through in one go but reading it when you need it. Thinking about house buying? Car? Investing? Maybe just not going broke? It's all in it's own separate section that's easy to find.
Highly recommend to any man, young or old.
And I do mean all things – this covers a life cycle starting with the young man considering college/university to planning for death.
I fear if you are an idealist you may not appreciate the nature of this book, I probably would not agree with the author on everything but I found myself nodding in agreement with a lot of things said.
It even has a few laughs as the author exhibits a bit of dry humour in the cutting remarks “It’s not a real degree if it ends in studies” comes to mind.
The book has a unique value to the reader as it offers financial advice to men (with a red pill logic). Therefore there is discrediting of feminism and some nice guys may shudder at the dating advice chapter.
The dating chapter is more of a crash course, he gives the reader various names in the manosphere perhaps recognising that his strengths are in economic advice.
It succeeds in ways many books fail where it has something to offer the reader, instead of the usual logic of “I know stuff and want to write a book”.
As I read the first section on choosing education I couldn’t help but think I wish I’d had this advice before choosing my degrees.
Therefore it is beneficial for a man/boy to read it at the youngest age possible, that way you can get ideas on the costs that come up in life and avoiding the mistakes.Read more ›

The reader will experience shock and dismay at what has become of our economy and the ‘modern woman.’ This isn’t your Dad’s, or Grandfather’s America, sonny. Those days of finding a quality woman, raising a family, having a successful career with just one or two employers is just about impossible. Pursuing those endeavors will most often result in failure and financial ruin.
This is 512 pages of advice. Most are lessons the author has learned the hard way. Young men: read this so you can navigate the terrain of the new, transformed, America. Read it to learn from someone else’s mistakes!
After reading Aaron's previous book "Worthless" and liking it, I decided to buy myself the Kindle version of this book.
I am very glad I did because it is one of the most helpful books I've ever read. For clearing one's mind of the bad information the world throws at boys and men about how to live happily, accept no substitute.
I've since purchased hard copy versions of this book for friends and they've expressed appreciation for it. Get it now!
Women get way too much [mis]information, while men get nothing. And who's fault is this? Men's. We've never taken women's issues seriously, thus ignoring the threat of feminism. And since we're naturally competitive we NEVER share helpful information with other men, nor do we band together and strategize. So after 50 years of leftist and feminist policies running the show, we find ourselves in dire straits, both nationally and privately. But enough of MY laments. Let's talk about this book.
While no ONE book can ever tell you everything you need to know about Life, the Universe and Everything, Bachelor Pad Economics manages to be a great primer and guide to at least get you thinking and walking down the right path[s]. Should you build a library of such books, THEN you might have Everything You Need To Know.
Having read this book I KNOW what Aaron says is at least 96% accurate. [I can't speak to all the financial stuff, since I haven't done much of these things and thus my knowledge is sketchy at best. But it does SOUND good.]
The information [for me] breaks down like this: 40% of this stuff I have already done, to my benefit. 40% I knew I SHOULD have done, but didn't and now wish that I had. 20% of this stuff I never knew and wish that I had. That's 100% of GOOD information in one resource.
This is not hyperbole. I constantly nodded my head, pumped my fist in the air and shouted, "YES! Exactly right!" while reading this book. Had I had this book when young, or at least some MAN in my life telling me these things, I could have avoided MANY mistakes.
But alas, it's too late for me. And if you're a middle aged man, or older, this book comes too late for you as well.
HOWEVER, if you're under the age of 30, AND you haven't already destroyed your life beyond repair, then this book is right on time and you'd better freaking READ IT! It WILL save you a TON of heartache, wasted time and finances. I've two young sons in this category and I've purchased two copies of this book for them. I've taught and guided them well, but obviously I don't know everything and I can't always be there to stop them from doing something foolish.
Whereas a good book just might do the trick. I advise all fathers to do likewise for your boys.
Oh, and buy them even MORE books along this line. Build a freaking library. That's what I'm doing. I owe them that.
So when Aaron announced that Bachelor Pad Economics was available for Kindle, I immediately bought it.
The first thing I noticed was that the quality of the copy-editing was much better than Enjoy the Decline. However, the down-to-earth style and vernacular were not sacrificed--the book still reads like a friend speaking to you, it just has far less misspellings and missing words. This improvement in editing, coupled with more professional-looking cover, make the book feel more like a book and less like blog selections with a cover slapped on.
As a mid 20's male who already practices minimalism, read Enjoy the Decline, and fairly regularly reads Clarey's blog, some of the material was familiar to me. I expected as much. However, even I found plenty of new and valuable information. I had never even thought about most of what is covered in Chapter 13: Legal prior to reading this book. The passage about owning a home in many urban areas having become a liability rather than an asset due to exponential and unconstrained increases in property taxes was another thing that particularly stuck out to me
I would definitely recommend this book to any man who is looking to improve his financial situation, or plan his financial future. Clarey doesn't lie to you, and when the future isn't pretty he doesn't try to paint it rosy. This book will help you avoid dangers that no one else is talking about. (For example, possible 401k confiscation.) While the book was worth the money for me now, it will be most valuable to those aged 12-15, who have not yet learned any of its lessons in the school of hard knocks. I have brothers in that age range I plan to gift with Bachelor Pad Economics in the very near future. If you care about a kid in the same age range, I suggest you do the same.
