This is Jack's best work yet. He does not set out to tell one how to be a neo-barbarian, but rather details the philosophical basis of this ultimate destination of masculinity. This is no dry academic text, although Donovan in his unique style does a complete demolition job on modern ruling ideologies such as universalism and economic globalism. All this is to clear the way for a return to tribalism, which he defends like a heavy weight MMA champion. The writing style is crystal clear, addressing all men. So, you have a credit card, or maybe you are on the mighty Kindle's one click system. Buy this book now! If I could give it another few stars I would.
Great follow up to "The Way Of Men, which had a long lasting and profound affect on me. Again, Mr Donovan has crystallized impressions many of us have into a very clear picture of the situation we're facing at the moment and offers a practical mindset/manifesto to approach the challenges that situation presents. There are several guys writing at the moment on similar subject, but this surpasses most of them in terms of the quality of writing.
I enjoy Donovan's writing style, he make great use of imagery and metaphor to make his point, he's a engaging story teller and his use of Germanic mythology to frame some of the key ideas here was particularly effective. Some of his ideas might be considered controversial, but they're always relevant and eloquently illustrated. Overall you have an excellently written, empowering and inspirational follow up to The Way Of Men.
This book is direct and simple with its ideas, but it will get through to people more than heavy conceptual works would. If you want something that simply illustrates that both the public and private sector are actively having negative impacts on modern western quality of life for a mix of profit and self righteous, "rules for thee and not for me" standards, this is the most common sense book. The caveat is that it can get a bit "grug strong and better than pencil pusher" although that's more to do with the authors self styled brand image than something to take too seriously and invalidate the points within.
Excellent read that encapsulates thoughts you probably already thought but can't quite admit to, weren't ready to acknowledge or couldn't put into a context of relevance in your world. Clear thinking and hard hitting the book meanders a little up until the half way point just trying to lay the ground for the second part where it really comes together. Excellent points, excellent clear cogent reasoning, a valid addition to the book shelf. You will see the world a little differently if you take on-board the fundamental premise of the tribe.
A great follow up to The Way of Men by the same author. Although I tend to think it should've been called The Way of Men Vol II, as it expands upon the ideas of the first book. In fact, I recommend that you buy the two books at the same time to fully digest the ideas that Jack Donovan discusses.
