To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Achei que nem de longe supera o Way of Man, acredito que o livro seria mais interessante para pessoas pouco assertivas, com dificuldade em dizer NÃO, que deixam-se controlar pelas opiniões de pessoas que nem deveriam ouvir. Por outro lado também achei um pouco "separatista" em alguns momentos.
I gave it 2 stars for the effort the author put into it but this is such a basic/generic book that you learn pretty much nothing from it. I believe anyone who is involved with politics/reading books and is not a sheep knows pretty much all the stuff shared in this book.
There is nothing solid that would make you jump out of your seat.
I am not going to return the book because I like to build my library but I won't recommend it to anyone.
I suggest you read Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell or something from Jordan Peterson and you will be far ahead of everyone else.
I bought this book because it was recommended to me by a fellow Marine. We were discussing the importance of identity in the military, as well as how veterans struggle after leaving the service and reasons why. He suggested I checked this book out, so I did. It's a short read, and I would only recommend it for the sake of getting a very different take on what masculinity means to some. The author basically argues that in order to find purpose, you must find identity, and that identity is easier to find within a tribe, where masculinity is unapologetic. Anything that's not this is sub-par. The book is full of contradictions and opinions rooted in extremist ideologies. The book really misses the point that within our society, we are already tribal enough as it is, and that this is what's breaking down the fabric of our nation. So in other words, tribalism is corrosive to who and what we are as a society. He makes decent arguments here and there, hence why I gave it two stars, but I honestly felt like my IQ was lowered big time after reading this. Read at your own risk - I would recommend other literature when it comes to this topic. When I finished reading this book, I began to wonder how Marcus Aurelius would respond to a book like this, or someone like General Mattis. This book holds no research beyond Germanic and Nordic lore and opinions. It was a waste of time and money.
Was turned off about halfway in. I liked the The Way of Men, but I should have passed on this one. I think masculinity is under attack, and I like the idea of developing a tribe, but I'm not a white supremacist. But what does the author care? Not my people, not my problem, right?
