The Way Of The Superior Man by David Deida book review
They say everywhere that this one is a must.... and they are right.
One of the best books for men. Every concept is basically something to apply in your life. If you had live your life in a kind of manly manner in the past you will definitely see some pattern of your in the book.
He talks about your very core (if you have a masculine essence) and how to deal with it. Also he explains your relationship with women and that she is your best asset because she will test you non-stop.
A man of quality will recognize that and love it; I seek it actually this test vibe from woman. When before I was repeal by it and it was a symptom of my lack of maturity as a men, not being able to face the challenge of women it's not being able to face the challenge of life.
Another concept that I use to apply for 3 years now is having a small team of guys who CALL OUT YOUR BULLSHIT TO YOUR FACE.
They are ton of other insightful perks, I suggest you check it out if you have not already.
read that a few years back, and felt like it could be cut by a half but there were definitely some very good bits in there.
