Building PowerThe Rational Male, Positive Masculinity (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi

I’m happy to announce today that The Rational Male – Positive Masculinity is now available on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Rational-Male-Positive-Masculinity/dp/1548921815

The Kindle version will be up within a day or two as it takes a bit longer for Kindle Direct Publishing to go through the review process.

Positive Masculinity is the newest supplemental reading in the Rational Male series designed to give men, not a prescription, but actionable information to build better lives for themselves based on realistic and objective intersexual dynamics between men and women.

The book outlines four key themes: Red Pill Parenting, The Feminine Nature, Social Imperatives and Positive Masculinity.

Free of the pop-psychology pablum about parenting today, Red Pill Parenting is primarily aimed at the fathers (and fathers-to-be) who wanted more in depth information about raising their sons and daughters in a Red Pill aware context. While not an instruction manual, it will give men some insight into how to develop a parenting style based on Red Pill principles as well as what they can expect their kids to encounter from a feminine-primary social order determined to ‘educate’ them.

The Feminine Nature is a collection of essays, revised and curated, that specifically address the most predictable aspects of the female psyche. It outlines and explores both the evolutionary and socialized reasons for women’s most common behaviors and their motives, and how men can build this awareness into a more efficient way of interacting with them.

Social Imperatives details how the female psyche extrapolates into western (and westernizing) cultural narratives, social dictates and legal and political legislation. This is the Feminine Imperative writ large and this section explores how feminism, women’s sexual strategy and primary life goals have molded our society into what we take for granted today. Also detailed is the ‘women’s empowerment’ narrative, and the rise of a blank-slate egalitarian equalism masking as a form of female supremacism that has fundamentally altered western cultures.

The last section, Positive Masculinity, is comprised of essays, reformed and expanded upon, that will give men a better idea of how to define masculinity for themselves from a conventional and rational perspective. In an era when popular culture seeks to dismiss, ridicule, shame and obscure masculinity, this section and this book is intended to raise men’s awareness of how fluid redefinitions of masculinity have been deliberately used to disempower and feminize men by a feminine-primary social order.

This book was a long time in the making and a lot of that was due to my wanting to create an organized flow of topics as well as to make sure the grammar and syntax was as perfect as I could make it. Like my two previous books, I’ve returned to my most popular essays and arranged them to speak to different themes in the book.

When I began writing, compiling and rewriting this book I had an initial working title – The Rational Male, The Red Pill – however, as I progressed I shifted this to Positive Masculinity. There came a point in my compiling and editing where I’d taken a different path in the purpose of the book. Where I had wanted to explain and/or defend the initial, intersexual, definition of what the term ‘Red Pill‘ has increasingly been distorted away from, I found myself leaning more into expressing ways in which this Red Pill awareness could benefit men’s lives in many ways, both in and apart from intersexual dynamics.

I’d hit on this in my Red Pill Parenting series from a couple years ago and I knew I wanted to revisit and make that series a prominent part of this book. As it sits now, it accounts for a full quarter of the book’s content, but as I moved into my writing more I decided that the best way to really define ‘The Red Pill” as I know it was to go into the various ways men might benefit from redefining masculinity for themselves in a conventional, Red Pill aware sense.

When I finished the parenting section I realized that I was really laying out general, if not prescriptive, ideas for ways men might better raise their sons and daughters in a feminine-primary social order that’s determined to raise and condition them. My purpose with both the series and section was to equip fathers with Red Pill aware considerations in making their sons and daughters Red Pill aware themselves in order to challenge a world that increasingly wants to convince us that fathers’ influence is superfluous or dangerous.

It was from this point that I’d made a connection; what I was doing was laying out a much-needed reckoning of sorts with regard to what conventional, positive masculinity might mean to future generations of Red Pill aware men. Since my time on the SoSuave forums and the inception of my blog I’ve used the term Positive Masculinity. I’ve even had a category for it on my side bar since I began too. From the time I began writing I’ve always felt a need to vindicate positive, conventional masculinity (as well as evolved conventional gender roles for men and women) and separate it from the deliberately distorted “toxic” masculinity that the Village of the Feminine Imperative would have us believe is endemic today.

I wonder if u/Rollo-Tomassi paid you for diligently making sure his advertisement for his product was seen by as many people as possible

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 23 points24 points  (31 children)

You should read the sidebar material

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (30 children)

I'm aware of your contributions to the community, they have helped me personally plenty. I get that it's probably fair enough for all you've done for us but imagine coming to TRP for the first time and seeing an advertisement pinned at the top of it

[–]Modredpillschool 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Rollo paid his dues without ever asking for anything in return and paved the way for a community like this.

When somebody puts that much effort into your community, they earn respect. Maybe not from you, but from the people deciding the sticky, this one goes to the top.

[–]aanarchist 42 points43 points  (15 children)

honestly i regret discovering trp through rollo. he went halfway and decided that he knew everything he needed to know. in my opinion he's a good part of why trp is such a shitshow full of betas who have been on trp forever and their life still revolves around pussy. all of his material was describing the effect of what was happening, not the cause. he got caught in the same left brain trap everyone else got caught in, and it appealed to people who were equally unbalanced. the problem with people who are so sure of themselves is they develop ego and stop learning, so with the entire trp community on his nuts his blog became stunted.

i understand why i was so attracted to his blog and why it resonated with me:i was a hard left brain dominant beta, my mode of operation was to think my way out of the blue pill because that's what the left brain is for. it's even in the blog name, rational, intuition was completely thrown out the window because that is a right brain function, and our society especially the betas have had the intuition beaten out of them.

rollo offers no solutions, just information. he does this because either he does not want to offer the solutions, or because he knows if he does it will discredit him as he's basically putting himself into a position of being discredited. you can rationalize every argument in a blog post, but when you actually give someone a suggestion on what to do, they can prove you wrong or ineffective. all he's doing is giving a left brain linear breakdown of what is happening. it's perfect material for someone who is deeply rooted in betahood and is asking his first questions that challenge the matrix. the rational male is a beginners stepping stone, and it's of particular importance that it is framed as such because otherwise we get a bunch of betas stuck in their left brain even deeper than they were before, and if you look at what a shit show trp reddit has become over the years, you can thank that all to them making conclusions, developing their ego around them knowing the conclusions, and their progress comes to a screeching halt from there and they're done when they in reality have just taken barely the first steps. rollo has helped in creating a lot of beta sociopaths with egos the size of jupiter, who have internalized holding frame even in the face of being wrong. this is an incomplete human being, a beta slave who stopped short.

he never says anything about intuition, it's all math equations, autism. a man who is balanced, who is complete, is both rational and intuitive, and he knows how to operate with both of those things working in unison. he can feel as well as think, and that's where most of mankind's greatest progress has come from. nikola tesla, legend who created the ac motor, his design was built on his intuition, his logic was used to design something he understood would work. he didn't use logic to figure something out that he didn't understand, he used it to break down something he already knew intuitively. most dudes do it the other way where they try to use logic to break down something they don't understand, because they're so emotionally stunted that they can't feel anything without becoming uncomfortable and breaking down, it's why a sociopath becomes irritable when they're out of their depth is they are unable to cope or process the emotions so they start to break down, or break frame. their life is spent avoiding this and so you have another machine who operates exclusively on a left brain, rigid and linear paradigm, exactly what they did before they found the red pill just with a few more pieces to the puzzle.

i appreciate that his information was available, but for someone held in such high esteem in the red pill community, he's put on way too much of a pedestal and people start to see him as the end goal rather than the first step in a long marathon. worst part is trp has become such a mainstream cult mentality like feminism that you'll get attacked for sharing an unpopular thought or opinion. his only response to you challenging him in any way is to say lul bruh i'm a sidebar hero so shut up and nod your head like everyone else like a good little beta slave. the red pill is not a popularity contest, but trp reddit has become one unfortunately.

[–]SocietalEngineering 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Real talk. Glad someone said it.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

In his defense, he has stated several times that his intent is to give a descriptive account of sexual dynamics. His blog was not meant to be, from the outset, a game or a self-improvement blog per se.

I'm not sure where intuition can exactly fit in in all of this. Sure, scientists and inventors use their intuitions, but when they published their papers, they didn't say, "You know, I just have a hunch that the speed of light is constant in all reference frames.". They followed their intuition, and then described it to other people in a logically cohesive manner. Communicating intuition is nigh impossible.

If you're disappointed that Tomassi didn't address developing your intuition when dealing with women, you have to understand that this is something that comes from experience. You can't learn it from a blog. Acting on the advice in the Rational Male (esp. Plate Theory and the Iron Rules) helps you develop your game over time to the point that it becomes second nature to you. Having the knowledge of sexual dynamics helps you put everything into perspective.

his only response to you challenging him in any way is to say lul bruh i'm a sidebar hero so shut up and nod your head like everyone else like a good little beta slave

Right. If your challenge lacks substance, you're going to get a response that lacks substance.

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

You know there are plenty of advice bloggers in the 'sphere who will gladly sell you their 12 point list of things 'every man' should do to live like a 'real man'.

There are plenty of guys who are ready to tell you that all you need to do is change your perspective and think positive and send out the right cosmic vibes and you'll solve all your problems that keep you from living a 'better life'.

And there's no shortage of half-wit Secret Kings who think that all a guy needs to do is read the classics and understand what Meyer's-Briggs has convinced him his identity should be.

I don't do any of that for one simple reason – I'm not in the business of making better men, I'm in the business of men making themselves better men.

Yes, I know this is you Artful or should I say Adam? Your rambling self-loathing and hate for me only comes from your inability to look at yourself and accept that you've never been capable to stare at the abyss or come to any constructive concepts in how to fill your Blue Pill emptiness.

You are a Secret King. Krauser and Vox pegged your 'personality type' years ago.

https://krauserpua.com/2015/12/28/gamma-vs-sigma/

Secret King

There’s a male totem-pole for almost every activity – sports, politics, money, sex. Men naturally sort themselves into hierarchies, usually based on each member’s usefulness to the group project. If you’re good at what the group is trying to accomplish you get promoted and lavished with respect. If you’re a dead weight, you’re the goalkeeper. These hierarchies are based on performance, and they require other people to comply with you. You can’t simply declare yourself high-born and slot in at the top. The other men won’t tolerate it.

Gamma males are much too precious to accept their lowly position on the totem pole. They seeth with resentment over it and look for any way at all to climb up the pole – any way except through improved performance in the group’s task, that is. This makes Gamma males a source of instability. The Alpha/Beta/Omega hierarchy is stable because all know their place and accept how ranking battles take place: Alphas make power plays, Betas ace perfromance tests, and Omegas show willingness to carry out the drudge work without bitching. Gammas cheat and scheme.

This is why so many movies use the gamma archetype as the sneaky back-stabbing social climber figure (think the treacherous vizier in the king’s court, or the jealous weasel among the group of survivors in the zombie movie). Stories require drama and gamma males are the rogue internal element that upsets a previously stable social arrangement. If the beseiging horde overruns your castle or the zombies stream through a breach in the boarded-up windows, you can bet it was the gamma who let them in because he’s jealous of the team’s alpha.

Vox has made a number of predictions about how Gammas will interact, though unfortunately he hasn’t collected them all in one place so I can’t simply link to a page. As I remember it, they include:

• Gammas will actively pick fights they can’t win against higher-ranking men. This is because the Secret King can’t accept that nobody appreciates his value but being feminised they don’t really understand how men handle conflict. Their risk assessment is faulty, like a belligerent woman screaming “you can’t hit me I’m a girl” before she’s decked on WorldStarHipHop.

• Gammas can’t back down from these fights because that means admitting defeat, which goes against the Secret King belief. Also, everything is too personal, being feminised. So rather than slink away from a beating they have to keep running their mouth and keep getting beaten up.

• Gammas will lie, spin, and employ sophistry to maintain the illusion of winning when obviously losing. The evidence doesn’t actually support the winning, so it’s avoided, but they don’t realise how transparent their defeat is.

• Gammas use the feminised debating tactic of tackle the man not the ball. They will directly insult in order to create badfeelz, because they project their own fear of badfeelz and assume their opponent is similarly wounded by it.

How's that for some actionable analysis? Adam it's not me you hate, it's yourself. You project it on to me because everything I've written resonates with some aspect of your life that you have never been able to resolve and believe you never will. You're upset because I don't offer the easy solutions you need to come to on your own. You're upset because the truths that RP opened you to have made you despondent and hopeless because no one's holding your hand and showing you how you can make them work in your favor. Just like Eliot Rodger, you see it working for other men who've applied it successfully for themselves, but you think the secret is being kept from you. I've never offered quick easy formulaic solutions for men – and particularly men, such as yourself, who are self-admittedly damaged psychologically.

Understanding how to apply what the Red Pill reveals about women, about ourselves, about our social order, will NEVER be one-size-fits all. Each man has to use the information it shows him and make it actionable for HIMSELF. And that's ultimately what I offer, actionable information. Any man telling you he's got the secret code of how ANY man can be a 'real man' or an 'authentic man' is selling you HIS religion, HIS conviction, HIS neuroses.

You've admitted yourself, on your blog and on Twitter, that you suffer from depression. Others have attempted to help you:

http://modernlifedating.com/the-tragedy-of-insecurity-featuring-the-artful-man/

You suffer from a severe state of Blue Pill self-righteousness and unreciprocated expectations of women's intimacy. No one can help you except you, and your rambling screeds here and on Twitter, at myself, Illimitable Man, Vox and God knows how many others makes you stick out like a rash on any RP forum.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

How's that for some actionable analysis?

That still wasn't offering a solution at all, it was just analysis. You might be right about this guy's character but all you did was give credibility to his point. Funny cause I didn't even comment in the first place to criticize you, just wanted to make people think about what they were looking at. If your blog IS just supposed to get men to fix their own problems why not just say that and leave it at that? Maybe that doesn't pay the bills

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If you've read even one introduction to one of my 3 books or you've read any of a hundred comments I've made or any of the dozens of posts I've made about EXACTLY this, you'd know how foolish you sound after writing this.

This was just last month:

https://therationalmale.com/2017/07/06/confidence-and-the-safety-net/

Anyone who’s read my post What’s Your Problem? probably has a good idea of what motivated me to write what I do going on 16 years now, but when I read stories like this and I get emails or Tweets to let me know how what I’ve made men aware of has somehow changed or saved a man’s life it’s always a humbling experience. As I’ve stated in both my books, I’m not in the business of making better men, I’m in the business of helping men become better men themselves. No formulas, no Top Ten Ways to,… lists, just actionable intelligence; but that information still requires a man come to applying it to his own life in a way which works for him.

Even if all Logic gets from my work is the sense of confidence that he has the right intel about how he can better direct his life despite any momentary downside I consider that a success of my intent as a Red Pill writer. When you look at the appalling statistics of male suicide and you understand the correlation of it with the rise of a feminine-primary social order that teaches men to loathe their own gender and accept their superfluousness, knowing that the Red Pill can provide some insulation against it is encouraging.

Read any of the hundreds of comments on this post's thread and you'll understand just how baseless Artful/Adam's trolling really is. This is the same guy who's done nothing in his meaningless life but troll, teardown and attack men who he believes wont help him solve his very deep-rooted psychological problems. He's gone after myself, Illimitable Man, Black Label Logic and half a dozen others because what they explain to him only reflects his unsolvable problems back at him. This is the same troll who leaves the only baseless 1 star review of this book as an unverified buyer of a book he's never read.

Be careful who you defend brother, drowning men will often take you down with them.

I'm not defending him, I'm defending a point he made. Ideas don't have to be personal

[–]IRC Mod-Anteros- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You missed the point. Re-read.

[–]Endorsed Contributorseattleron 2 points3 points  (1 child)

rollo offers no solutions, just information. he does this because either he does not want to offer the solutions, or because he knows if he does it will discredit him as he's basically putting himself into a position of being discredited.

Love his stuff, but this is always, ALWAYS the most frustrating thing about reading his stuff. He will explain the things women do, why they do it, what society has done to aid/lead to said things, give background info, etc. Basically, he gives you every single detail about subjects related to male/female attraction/sexuality, but then doesn't tell you exactly WHAT you should do to counteract. I know he knows what should be done. He just never fucking says it! So frustrating!

It would be like watching a YouTube video on how to fix ____ on your car, getting an explantion of why said part broke, but then the video ending without telling you how to change the broken part.

I love Rollo, I love his contributions, and I love his rationality. I just do not understand why he refuses to give solutions, explanations, or actions men should do in whatever subject he's writing about.

It's why I love Heartiste's blog so much. He explains shit, then says: "What the doting, incel, beta autist should have done is_____"

Rollo, give us action plans. We don't just want to know what went into making the airplane, we want to fly that bitch, too!

[–]aanarchist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I read his latest article and found myself skimming through it, it's been happening for a while now is his material follows the same formula, he's saying the same shit over and over. He's completed his journey less than half way there and he's camped his tent and sharing information about what it's like to be at the mountain top. There are holes in his own understanding of the world and his posts are becoming more about the rationalizing male than the rational male. Let's not forget that it is no sign of health to be well adjusted to a sick society, and he is very well adjusted and fits right in with how good his hamster has developed. Like I said he can't offer solutions without discrediting himself as a fraud. A true master would have kept climbing, kept learning, kept connecting the dots and searching for the truth.

[–]zinver 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Suggested reading for someone that has just finished the Rational Male and wants to find that balance?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I agree and i disagree. I agree that its the first stepping stone in a long road , but i also disagree , cause Rollo repeatedly rejects the highly technical aspect and he enforces changing your character as a whole instead of just repeating the technique without learning for yourself and experiencing / evolving . I think he delivers a truly great foundation for a better life and this should be held in high regard .

If you are too stupid/beta too understand the concept and are just searching for the easiest way ( - creating betas with god complex ) out of your crisis , then the author shouldnt be blamed - cause he said everything thats needed to be said , what you make of it and how much work you put in is up to you .

Im german ( grammar ... )

[–]aanarchist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

he's got at least 15 years on me in knowledge and experience, if i came to the conclusions i did at my age he has no excuse at his age. if i know what untempered red pill knowledge does to a man, so should he, and thus he is responsible at least in part for how it affects others as he is the one who chose to deliver it the way he did. unless you wanna say that he was ignorant of the truth when he was writing his blog in which case he's just another dupe. like i said before had i had someone like mark passio give me my first taste of the red pill in the holistic fashion that he does, i would have had a very short anger phase that was mostly directed at myself, instead of how long it took me and the things i did during that phase. there's' bringing information to the public, then there's being an educator. an educator presents information combined with a sensitivity towards the recipient to create a positive impact. rollo simply gave loaded guns to whoever asked for it and left them to figure it out on their own. a lot of guys have shot themselves not knowing how to handle the tool they were given properly nor responsibly. lets say a father gives his son a power drill, is he responsible for making sure the child doesn't hurt itself and uses it properly? he has the seniority, he is what most consider the father of the red pill. it's 50/50, part of the responsibility goes to the people who made their choices using the information they had in the moment, and part of it goes to rollo for presenting it the way he did, and in particular his utterly left brain biased and unbalanced views of the world and his decision to share ideas that were still fragmented. a teacher is not allowed in a classroom until they've proven that they know what the fuck they're talking about. there's no regulations when it comes to the red pill but a sane, healthy, responsible human being will understand the potency of the information he is presenting, and will handle it responsibly and will take it upon himself to help guide a lot of lost young men so that they don't end up going on hate filled rampages. he did not say everything that needed to be said, he said barely a 3rd of what needed to be said and that's being generous.

[–]1mental_models 0 points1 point  (0 children)

'intuition' is kind of an unorthodox thing to teach or to learn..

Intuition is basically pattern recognition. Recognizing patterns or 'prototypical situations'. These can be your brain's natural heuristics (which generally help, but occasionally harm, and are vulnerable to manipulation from others), or they can come from having a competence and a familiarity with common 'templates' that are similar to your real-time life situation.

I don't know enough about leftvs.right brained thinking to comment about that dynamic. Just the intuition part.

In general, you have to be able to recognize the authors and the storytellers, and hope to glean some insights and motivation from them. The same power laws that apply to the universe will apply to trp. A few posters and posts will give you great insight, and much of the other stuff will not. Ultimately, you have to experiment to see what applies to you, and your path.

[–]IRC Mod-Anteros- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you tell us (briefly) why you're looking for a god here?

Why should anyone tell you "solutions" which inevitably rob you of first hand experience? Social interaction is not made of math equations, the very thing you're rambling against Rollo for is exactly the mathematic "solution" you are looking for.

worst part is trp has become such a mainstream cult mentality like feminism that you'll get attacked for sharing an unpopular thought or opinion

its a common reaction to 1) people hearing what they don't like or 2) some newbie trying to impress his small amount of knowledge upon the group.

Should you decide to pipe up, keep your response concise and free of online adderall rants.

I suppose people who will stay, will stay, and people who will go, cuz of an ad pinned on top?, will go.

It's almost as if you want to make yourself a Lil prominent and feel worth by commenting on a sticky and it's worth.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

you caught me, sharing unfavorable and unpopular opinions anonymously is the best way to achieve prominence. Also I can't tell if you said Lil prominent like that as a joke about modern rappers or you're just one of those people that kind of types like an idiot

Prominence is the sense of internal validation. What I don't understand is the reasoning behind you wanting to express this.

Thanks for clearing that up

What I don't understand is the reasoning behind you wanting to express this.

Maybe you should ask, then

[–]SoulRedemption 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Hehe, we are going to do this back n forth thing eh. I was being slightly rhetorical. And it may be true, you may be too young, or not riped, cuz an thinking you would have expressed the reasoning in the last comment if you weren't taking this too personally.....and triggered. We are losing track of things and this is just a dick measurement now. I am in your boat, unfortunately.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

cuz an thinking you would have expressed the reasoning in the last comment if you weren't taking this too personally.....and triggered.

I didn't mean it like that I meant it like why didn't you ask in the first place. I guess I'm just overly sensitive to advertisements at all cause everywhere I look so many people are just influenced by businesses and money and they're constantly consuming something new instead of actually figuring out what they want on their own. So, even though Rollo has done so much for the community and deserves it, it bothers me to see an ad for a product pinned at the top of TRP. I picture people buying the book and reading part of it and going right back to their shitty lives because consuming more shit was never the answer and probably isn't gonna help them. That said a book is a lot better than the shitty shit they're probably usually consuming and I'm sure it will actually help out ~20% of the people who buy it. Like u/adam-l said though I'm probably lacking a sense of measure here but still when I read back on the post/ad it really just sounds more like someone trying to make money than someone trying to help people out. Not that I wouldn't do the same, and I could be wrong

We are losing track of things and this is just a dick measurement now. I am in your boat, unfortunately.

Gave me a good laugh lol

Hello! I have a small son and am pregnant with my next son too so I anticipate buying them a copy each when they are older. Thank you for putting into words what they need to know about relationships and The Way Things Are, not how you want them to be.

I've definately never bought anything so fast on Amazon.

Rollo's work is like the framework of the red pill. It is the basic textbooks that all students must have in order to complete the course. I am glad Rollo has devoted some time to red pill parenting. I think this is a new front for men in a society where our reproductive rights are non existent and when men's children are kept away from them by family courts in state sanctioned child abuse. Maybe one day the red pill parents sub will be as heavily populated as this sub. Thankyou for being the torchbearer Rollo.

Canadian version soon?

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Soon. It takes a while for international sales to get stock. You can try Createspace direct though

Rollo you are the best, I read your first book Completely changed my life. Looking forward to prevenative medicine.

For anyone who hasn't read the rational male it should be the red pills bible. Every man should read Rollo's books nothing is a eye opening as them.

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm always glad to read testimonials like this. I don't write for a living, so it's really a labor of love. It's stories like this that make it worth it.

[–]Downhere_Seeds 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hi Rollo, any chance your books will be in the Google Playstore in the future?

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll look into it.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Congratulations Rollo! Can't wait to grab the kindle and audible versions once they're up

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bought on audible. Listening to it now as i refurbish/repair my trailer.

My confession is that i only briefly skimmed bits and pieces of your material from select quotes from senior members.

Now that I've been part of this community for almost 6 months, im ready to digest your books.

[–]enigmatic_ammonite 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Love your work, Rollo, but please, please, get a decent editor! Grammatical errors are rife in your books and reduce the credibility of your ideas.

Some of your writing is close to incomprehensible without serious thought as well. This could arguably be a benefit - by forcing readers to think on it they're more likely to properly understand - but it also reduces the accessibility of your writing. Again, a good editor should help with this.

[–]Wissenschaft85 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I like Rollos writing because its free of both idolizing and demonizing women. He just states how women operate and how to read them and how to handle them. Whatever you wish to do with the information is up to you.

Thank you for writing these books.

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Objectivity is always the goal. Too many guys think that laying out RP awareness is akin to complaining or discouragement, but it's not. How you respond to truth is up to you.

[–]DysfunctionalBrother 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is there any good stuff in this book that would be useful for a man in his mid twenties who is interested in building a better life through career and friends, who isn't focused on being a parent or being with women at the moment?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hello , im a young reader from germany who read the first two books multiple times and i just instantly ordered the third one - i hope it stands up to its competition .

Aside from that , i really feel like your books are like the basic textbooks of Redpill/Positive Masculine Ideology and do a great job in professionally explaining the most important principles in a neutral , rational way .

Its a pleasure to read them just to remind myself of the core principles from time to time and it is helping me stick to my positively masculine and stoic way of life - i would say you are a huge positive influence in my personal evolution .

Its like a Foundation to build upon and branche out with my own ideas and experiences , combine it with my other inspirations in life and Philosophy .

In a sie note , there were a couple grammar and spelling errors in your first two books which i even noticed as a german - maybe you should keep that in mind , it can Kind of ruin your credibilitiy with New readers who are allready sceptical in regards to the matter .

Anyway . Thanks .

And please dont s ell out .

Great work Rollo, I look forward to reading it.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've been anxiously waiting for this book. Purchased.

[–]keysomea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Been waiting Rollo thanks a lot

[–]WolfofAnarchy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Keep doing what you do! I do disagree with some of your ideas and how you present them as the unbridled truth, but your book has helped me.

[–]KyloNSnape 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Purchased. Can't wait to read it

[–]RedTenet 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Are there any plans for a Hardback version of this book?

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yes, as well as the first book

[–]bama79rolltide 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Purchase all three books. Amazing author.

Try his Tap 357 whiskey also!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bought your book along with some others this week. I haven't started yours yet. (my father snatched it and got hooked on it already)

[–]ObviouslyRP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wish it was leather bound and delivered with some pappy van winkle

[–]Endorsed Contributorseattleron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh man, The Feminine Nature sections sounds like required reading for all RP men.

Will it specifically go into how to think how women think and understand the way they think to know better how to act/respond?

I'm seriously pumped about this book!

[–]CaptainBW 1 point2 points  (0 children)

just bought Preventive Medicine the other week, had no idea there was another book in the works. Good stuff! You are the man Rollo your books have helped so much

[–]ManowaR1488 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please tell me it's actually leather bound.

[–]newls 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Cool, been listening to your audiobook again today. Love your theories on dread, and how a girl's imagination can be your most powerful tool.

Hiring Sam Botta again for the new audiobook?

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Sam is finishing up the reading on the 2nd book this month. I'm still deciding about book 3. I may even read it myself.

[–]newls 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good to hear. Sam has a fantastic voice.

That'd be interesting. I've heard your voice on podcasts, could work well.

Mark Manson narrated Models for Audible and it worked well. You can put across your own emphasis and understanding because you wrote the material.

[–]all4gibs 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i read TRM a few years ago. incredible material. pretty good thing to get your son on his 16th birthday or so

[–]StraightWhiteMaleLOL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ordered. As the father to a 5-year-old daughter, with a mother (we aren't together) who follows the typical tired feminist dogma, I am very interested in the Red Pill Parenting part.

Based on the excellence of the first two Rational Male books, I'm buying the kindle version now... insane ROI... it's a no brainer.

[–]niceguy_gone_cad 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Will buy as soon it's available on Kindle. I'm sure it'll be superb.

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It's on Kindle already: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0748N6NW7

Are there plans to port this to the google play book store?

[–]OldGuyRedux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bought and read the relevant sections - good pithy writing as usual. The Plate Theory plus Roosh's 'women are oil wells - know they run out some day' are the 2 most important ironclad never-forget Frames that I would bestow on every young man. I also appreciated the commentary on dating down 1-2 SMV points (attributed to Roissy) to help install and maintain this Frame until it is second nature. In addition to us 80percenters who are not and never can genetically or psychologically be Alphas or Badboys (visit nonalphanonbadboy), I leave this efficient comedic video...

I'm a childfree person.

Should I care reading this book?

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Definitely, it's not only about RP parenting. That's just the first section.

[–]lmfaoneckbeards 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This sub is a lot different than 2 years ago. It is literally crowded with beta posts like this one. You don't need a book to find out how to be alpha. You simple take care of yourself physically, take care of yourself emotionally, be happy, have a passion, and take a risk by talking to people and see where it goes. It's as simple as that. You betas really overcomplicate things. I bet you think every guy is a Chad who makes you break eye contact in public too lol.

Is there going to be a PDF version for those of us that want to pay with PayPal?
