This book is (much like the Red Pill/Blue Pill/MGTOW trip) as, if not more toxic than the feminism, crybully political correctness/ negative, painful experiences with women that lead us here.
This book can make you a bit smarter, like the Coded/Decoded section, which is what I was looking for, but I can mostly see it either justifying wasting more years in frustration and anger and attracting more of it, or even justifying the ugliest, narcissistic PUA behaviour
I’ve spent enough time in the problem, I’d rather seek solutions

It claims that men are slowly starting to wake up to how unfairly they are being treated and talks about marriage in particular. Marriage rates in the USA have been tracked and men are shunning it in huge numbers. Reasons probably include what happens if the relationship breaks down - access to children on the woman's terms, paying out for the children and the ex-wife for many years to come, loss of the home and all wrapped up in a legal system stacked massively in a woman's favour. (this is the subject of another excellent book "Men on Strike ").
The book is quite hard on women and portrays them as largely uncaring people who see men as their "workers ". The author claims that the reason women are stronger in relationships is that they never cared in the first place and that is why men take longer to get over break ups.
"Love " and romance is largely a myth and is the guise under which women operate to keep a man in check and earning to pay for all the rubbish that they "need ".
Make your own mind up but I guarantee you will start to examine life just a bit differently after reading this.. If you are a young man in particular and not yet married then I recommend you grab a copy fast!!
