Most Self-Help Books are Bogus

This article was originally published on Seth Rose Life several years ago. *** There are many people out there who are looking to improve their quality of life and don’t know where to start. Instead of getting down to work, they head to the bookstore or Amazon and check out the ‘Self-Help’ book section. In […]

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson

I was a big fan of Mark Manson back in the day. I enjoyed reading his advice on picking up women and self-improvement. That was years ago though. Well before he even released his book Models, which I’ve never actually read.   The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson is hugely […]

February 2018 Book Club Pick: Meditations

The Masculine Book Club got kicked off last month. We’re now a dozen strong and always happy to have more. For this month we will be reading Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. This is a classic, ancient text. It is quoted often and for good reason. The numerous aphorisms will bode well for a group discussion. […]

What Pinocchio Teaches Us About Avoiding Hedonism

Pinocchio is a classic Disney film. It’s a wonderful work of animation that has been enjoyed by multiple generations since it was released in 1940. More than an animated movie, the film, and the book as well, have some very valuable lessons. A lot of them are quite clear, such as not lying. Even young […]

Tolstoy on Living a Meaningful and Memorable Life

Many people experience life just going through the motions. Work, TV, eat, sleep, repeat. We pursue status and material goods, because that is the way society leads us. We go out and party and have a good time. Yet, when we look back on it all it is all a blur. In the Death of […]

God, Faith, and Reason by Michael Savage

Michael Savage is known for his brash antics and vitriol. Although I am not a fan of the incessant yelling, I really like his politics. In fact, I haven’t found a major talking-head who I agree with more. His latest book, God, Faith and Reason, is not the Michael Savage you may have heard. This […]

A Father’s Mission by Neil White: Strong Fatherhood in Our Modern Times

Guys in this corner of the internet talk about the problems men face in the modern world. But they don’t often talk about the problems the next generation faces. This is easy for them, as they rarely have children themselves. But for guys who have children, or want children in the near future, there is […]

How to Get Over 140,000 Impressions with 2 Tweets

The other day I came across a new article by Mike Cernovich: 40 Principles to Live By on my 40th Birthday. It was really refreshing to see Mike write an article on self-improvement/lifestyle advice versus the politics he’s been into the last two years. So, I decided to tweet the article out and wish him a happy […]

3 Ways to Retain Information from Audiobooks

I’ve really been loving audiobooks lately. I wrote about it in the post Paperbacks vs. Audiobooks. They allow me to “read” more books, as I can listen to audiobooks while working or driving. It’s definitely a game-changer. But one issue is that it can be difficult to retain information from audiobooks. Moreover, you can’t go back […]

How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them by Ben Shapiro

I try to avoid arguing with liberals. And I recommend the same to you. But maybe, just maybe, deep down I actually enjoy it. A few weeks I go I wrote about G.K. Chesterton’s fence analogy. Today, I am back with another book on the subject. Well, it’s not quite a book. It’s only 20 […]

Jacksonland by Steve Inskeep: Andrew Jackson vs. The Cherokee Nation

Throughout most of American history Andrew Jackson was revered as a great president. Jackson’s military leadership made him a national hero following the Battle of New Orleans in January 1815. There he fended off attempts by the British to seize New Orleans. The battle was itself unnecessary as the two parties were in the process of […]

How to Fight Procrastination… You Don’t! According to Nassim Taleb

In his book Antifragile Nassim Taleb explains why we shouldn’t fight procrastination. Instead, we should embrace it. Few understand that procrastination is our natural defense, letting things take care of themselves and exercise their antifragility; it results from some ecological or naturalistic wisdom, and is not always bad—at an existential level, it is my body […]

G.K. Chesteron’s Fence Analogy: The Perfect Way to Respond to SJW Nonsense

As part of the post-modernist and neo-marxist ideologies that are rampant in our society, we often hear about certain institutions are outdated. The critics argue that because it is [INSERT CURRENT YEAR] institutions that have existed for millennia should be thrown out and replaced with utter degeneracy. How does one respond to such accusations? G.K. […]

Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden: One Man’s Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West

North Korea has been one of the biggest issues in the news. Trump has used harsh rhetoric against the regime and they have fired back touting their supposed nuclear prowess. Whenever there is a current event instead of pretending like I know everything, I make an effort to learn more about an issue. This lead […]

Paperbacks vs. Audiobooks: What is the Better Reading Experience?

I’ve really been loving audiobooks lately. They’ve given me relief from listening to too many political podcasts. Instead, I can enjoy an engaging biography or practical book on business. Moreover, since there are just so many books to read out there, and not enough time, audiobooks can really help you fill the gap. Whether you’re […]

One Summer by Bill Bryson

What’s so special about the summer of 1927? Before reading this book I couldn’t tell you. I could fathom a few guesses about a stellar economy, jazz music and the ‘Roaring 20’s’ as a whole, but couldn’t nitpick any specific events. In fact, the 20’s was a peaceful decade, sandwiched between World War I and […]
