    Question What are the best books to read for a MGTOW?

    What books did you read that helped you to overcome problems in your life, or shift your perspective on a certain issue or become more stoic, careless etc?
    What about books about depression, or goals, or even money management?
    Not to mention books about human nature, seeing red flags in people and spotting sociopaths, or even books about privacy.
    Any book that you feel happy that you read.

    Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy is a superb book about personal development and success. In my opinion it may be the best text there is on the subject.

    Re: What are the best books to read for a MGTOW?

    I haven't read all of it yet... Damn, How to Destroy A Man Now by Angela Confidential.

    If you are ever thinking, maybe MGTOW is not for the life for me.... This book is for women on how to destroy a man. I thought it came naturally for women but Angela has written a book about it.

    How I found freedom in an unfree world, by Harry Browne. One of the best book I have ever read, if not the best.

    I have been reading books on how to run an online business by Entrepreneur; Resident Evil by SD Perry; and I have 12 Conan books in the mail expected next week.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    That book is absolutely the epitome of what means to GYOW. Harry Browne was the first MGTOW I have met. My world view had met an equal for the first time.

    Usually libertarians are GYOW.

    Manfred has a good list.

    For "mind candy" read all of the original "James Bond" novels. (Enjoy Ian Fleming's early work).

    Re: What are the best books to read for a MGTOW?

    I recommend Brave New World. It's a pretty fascinating showcase of many things, not least of which is the natural female inclination toward promiscuity.

    Fun fact about Brave New World. In today's world, a lot of the intended horror of the book is lost. But one element of the novel that was meant to horrify and disgust contemporary readers was women in the workplace. That's so normalized these days that the breadth of societal decay implied by women's presence in the workplace is lost. But Huxley wanted readers to see Lenina (and others) doing make-work jobs and feel ill over it. Everybody knows about the book's sexual depravity. But the "working professional" woman was meant to be a major part of the book's shock value.

    Re: What are the best books to read for a MGTOW?

    I've listed the things that have provided the biggest bang for the buck in my own life. I've left out those things that have provided little to no value and those things that proved very harmful to my existence.

    Most Important Books:

    The Manipulated Man
    The Legal Subjugation of Men
    The Fraud of Feminism

    Some of the most important things I've studied in my lifetime are on exploitation, usury and marginalization. The MGTOW mindset is by far the most important subject I've ever studied. It's banned/censored to prevent men from gaining important knowledge on how women and the state truly view men (male disposability).

    Some of the most important things I've learned are:

    (1) Socialism is how the non-productive use the state to legally enslave and exploit the productive.
    (2) The government works for those that give them the most in election/reelection donations (the rich).
    (3) The importance of dissecting usury/exploitation in chivalry, courtly love, gynocentrism and male disposability.
    (4) The importance of living below your means and saving for old age.
    (5) Understanding how the government uses the law to enslave and exploit people.
    (6) The mainstream media are merely propaganda outlets for women, their state pimps and GloboCorp.
    (7) How women and the state "groom" men to become obsequious, weak, ignorant and easily exploitable.
    (8) All relationships between adults are conditional transactions. Same is true of most adult/child relationships.
    (9) The crucial importance of education and picking a well thought out career/entrepreneurial path.
    (10) You will not find what you're looking for in love, booze, women, food, drugs, gambling, sex, wealth or any other pursuit. You will remain a victim of the Hedonic Treadmill throughout your entire life. Desire can and will destroy your life. The Hedonic Treadmill rules all.
    Sex is the bait. Marriage is the trap. Divorce rape is the goal.

    What is the solution then?

    For me, the obvious answer is spirituality, hence my book choices.

    The external pursuits that MannSplainer itemizes are distractions, not goals, and while you can get good at any of them, you can also be controlled by them and you may not realize how you were diverted.

    Seeking my purpose on earth, finding out why I am even here as a conscious entity, has been a bit of work but I find value in it. The trek is sometimes confusing, sometimes scary, mostly solitary, always interesting. It makes me revisit my precepts from time to time. Distilling out the cultural brainwashing in order to get at the core of my thoughts. Often, I look out the window and can almost see the noise of life shooting through the sky like invisible missile attacks, back and forth. Everybody trying to influence everybody else, jockeying for position in life, using the practical conventions that, well, gives us all something to do, I suppose. That's not purpose, though. That's more like the immediacy of survival. I won't let it distract me.

    Re: What are the best books to read for a MGTOW?

    "The Manipulated Man" has already been mentioned but it's a quick read PDF that has to be read at least 3 times in 3 or 5 years.
    If you're a reasonable, rational, intelligent man you'll probably believe 50 to 60% of it the first time. The rest, you put down to bitchiness.
    However, after reading it you'll suddenly see the dynamics of female nature all around you, permanently.
    The 2nd time I read the book I accepted close to 100%. The only thing I didn't agree with was Villars final statement that men, in general, would never unite because;
    "Only woman can break the vicious circle of man's manipulation and exploitation - but she will not do it. There is absolutely no compelling reason why she should. It is useless to appeal to her feelings, for she is callous and knows no pity. And so the world will go on, sinking deeper and deeper into this morass of kitsch, barbarism, and inanity called femininity,
    ,,,And man, that wonderful dreamer, will never awaken from his dream".,,,,,,,Esther Vilar
    The 3rd time I understood it completely and accepted both male and female nature.

    "The Anatomy of Female Power' by Chinwezu Ibekwe is a must for men who think that the female nature we see in the modern world is somehow caused by affluence or technology or ideological beliefs.
    Their nature has been the same since the beginning of writing with the Sumerians,,,,with "The Epic of Gilgamesh" then the Greeks with the Iliad and the Odyssey and so forth. He explained that the Greeks saw women as "A Beautiful Evil"
    It'll always be the same.

    "The Predatory Female" by Lawrence Shannon is a must for men who've been in long term relationships.
    It's disturbing how accurately he describes the dynamics of the relationships you've been in, no matter who you are.
    Very disturbing.
    Again, this is only for men who've been in long term relationships otherwise a huge chunk of it will go over your head.

    Not a single word has aged in any of these books.
    Compare them to the propaganda in feminist books written at the same time.

    Re: What are the best books to read for a MGTOW?

    I've read most of the books on this thread and couldn't recommend them enough! They are truly gems for men who want to go their own way!

    As Unboxxed mentioned, you must also seek books that treat to your soul, your spirituality (and I must emphasize how "spirituality" is not the same as "religion"). In this case, I highly recommend you start reading ancient philosophers - greek, roman, and so forth.

    I identify a lot with the Stoic school of Philosophy, because it focuses on virtue, truth, logic and living an ethical life. Stoicism also taught me how to be grateful for the very small things most people take for granted in our everyday lives.

    "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius is a primer! A fantastic book to keep by your bed, to read (and re-read) slowly daily, pausing at each insight this book will bring upon your mind.

    Another great little book I read recently is "A Guide to The Good Life - The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy" by William B. Irvine, who is a professor of Stoic philosophy that sums up the Stoic school of thought in this book, and gives practical advice on how to apply it in our modern lives.

    I also like "Essays" by Schopenhauer, but this may be a little too pessimistic for you right now. Save it for when you are in a "lighter mood" and can take the crude and cold description of the human race this philosopher offers you!

    Cheers,

    GJ

    Greed and desire are bottomless, twin, unquenchable pits. If you let them, they will ruin your life. Don't let them.
