    Book suggestions/recommendations

    Hey guys,

    Hope this thread doesn't get to long but long enough and we'll see who the readers are among us.

    Could you guys share/name books (of any genre) that you found interesting and/or educational? Author names also welcome.

    Strictly related to MGTOW or any field in general?

    Peter Hathaway Capstick was a African hunting guide turned author. Death in the long grass was his most famous book, but he wrote many others, and they were all worth a read. His estate went to all hardcover books after he died (the scum), but there's a lot of used paperbacks out there.

    Peter was always good for a one liner. My favorite was "nothing will get your attention faster than an elephant who's just decided he don't like you."

    I just recently finished reading my Conan The Destroyer book. It was a fun read. I'm thinking about going back to read Barbarian again since I love those muscle man stories.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    Re: Book suggestions/recommendations

    John Smith mentioned some good ones. I'd also add:

    Rise of Men, by Manhood Shitty Shit (not his real name)
    Going Your Own Way, by Elam and Wright
    Gynocentrism, by Peter Wright
    The Manipulated Man, by Esther Vilar
    The Rational Male, by Rollo Tomassi

    edit: In the interests of time, I just confined myself to MGTOW-ish books. I've read pretty widely, though, so if you're interested in a particular genre, just specify, and I'll see if I can come up with some good recommendations.

    Very nice. I'm not a fan of classical music normally, but that was purdy. I'll have to look more into Ravel. The book (The Girls) is described by the sole amazon reviewer as "an epic of misogyny by a very gifted writer." lol Sounds good, although 650-some pages seems like a bit much for me right now. But I've stuck it in my cart for consideration.

    Good thread. It's making me realise that I need to read more. I think the last thing I read was The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, a book about improving habits. It was pretty decent but to be honest, I've forgotten a lot of it already.

    I'm presently rereading Cannery Row by John Steinbeck. It good to spend some time with Mac and the boys.

    Huck Finn by Mark Twain. Any book that can still get itself banned after all this time is worth the read.

    Iron John by Robert Bly. This book will make you think. I had to stop frequently just to process the imagery. It also sends the feminists into seizures.

    The unchained man - Celeb Jones. Breaks down a lot of society's sacred cows from religion, societal customs, outdated caveman urges, to monogamy and marriage. More importantly actionable advice to deal with it, a must read for anyone in the manosphere.

    How To Be An Assh*le That Beautiful Women Love - Troy Francis - Even if you have no intention of being a PUA this is an insight into female nature. The highlight is Troy describing a former work colleague "Steve" who was one of the most vile, obnoxious human beings imaginable yet women were queuing around the block for him.

    Moving away from the manosphere I like inside exposes.

    Wasting Police Time: The Crazy World of the War on Crime by David Copperfield - The first chapter describes how he has to spend more than half the shift filling out paperwork to process a minor case of criminal damage, it doesn't get much better from there.

    It's Your Time You're Wasting By Frank chalk - Former teacher exposes the madness of the education system. From the 14 year olds who still can't read properly to political correctness gone mad.

    Confessions of a GP by Benjamin Daniels. Similar to the above 2 but from a family doctor.
    Men are becoming MGTOW by the millions, most without ever having heard the term. They are simply doing what all living organisms finding themselves in a toxic environment do. They adapt to it or remove themselves from it. Females are not liking either the adaptations or the removal.

    Re: Book suggestions/recommendations

    If you want some 19th century action, try "Adventures of a Red Sea Smuggler" by Henry De Monfreid." Henry was a Frenchman, burned in a business deal. All that was left between him and a nine to five job was a few bucks and a small sailing ship. So he decided to smuggle some hashish. All he knew was you bought it in Turkey and sold it in Egypt. Now Henry was either slicker than James Bond or a tremendous liar, cause he went up against a bunch a people who would of burned him if they could. But they never did. He even met the king of the smugglers in Egypt.

    stanmsl mentioned cop and doctor books. For the most part, books by ex-cops are alright. Some are really good, if you go for that sort a thing. Doctor books, there ain't many. Some are good, thought the doctor's batting average is not as good as the ex-cops. Frontier doctors, their books are usually better.

    Re: Book suggestions/recommendations

    For those who are interested in history, I strongly reccommend the series "The Corps" by W.E.B Griffin .

    The Corps is a series of historical fiction books about the U.S. Marine Corps in the Pacific during WW2.

    When I say historical fiction I mean that every bit of the stories are accurate to the last detail BUT the author has invented a number of fictional charactors to play out some of the roles.

    Books
    Semper Fi
    Call to Arms
    Counter Attack
    Battleground
    Line of Fire
    Close Combat
    Behind the Lines
    In Dangers Path

    SHOULD BE READ IN ORDER, STARTING WITH SEMPER FI

    Reviews of Griffin's books.
    "Griffin is a story teller in the grand tradition, probably the best man around for describing the military community."

    Re: Book suggestions/recommendations

    For a MGTOW Scifi author, suggest Jack Vance. Numerous books dealing with insane women feminist types . . .
    Araminta Station (The Cadwal Chronicles) (Volume 1) Paperback April 12, 2017


    For a thousand years, the breathtaking planet Cadwal has been preserved by the Naturalist Society of Old Earth, with human population strictly limited by a Charter of Conservancy.

    But undercurrents of discontent are spreading . . .

    Rhialto the Marvellous (The Dying Earth series Book 4) Kindle Edition

    In the Araminta series, a young cop works on solving crimes, but behind them all is a female cult devoted to making women and men equal - the result, misshapen fat ugly women men hybrids created by genetic engineering . . . after falling into the hands of the feminist cult, the cop must escape . . . in Volume 3.

    In Rhialto the Marvellous, the magician must confront a feminist conspiracy of witches that attempts to turn all male wizards into simps . . . it is almost too late to stop the witches . . .

    Re: Book suggestions/recommendations

    IMO , one of the very best authors... Wilbur Smith.
    Here are 2 of my all-time favorites:
    River God (a novel of ancient Egypt, circa 1750 B.C.) Dare I say it is the best novel I have ever read ?
    Also, The Sunbird
