I'm an interloper here, but was curious. I am struggling to read the book because she makes so many false statements. Can anyone justify these passages?

He offers her coeducation, so that she is accustomed to his way of life from childhood. With all sorts of excuses, he gets her to attend his universities and initiates her into the mysteries of his own discoveries, hoping to awaken her interest in the wonders of life.

and

Has she ever made use of the mental processes he teaches at his universities to develop her own theories? Does she do independent research in the institutes he has thrown open to her? Someday it will dawn on man that woman does not read the wonderful books with which he has filled his libraries.

? Women had to fight to be admitted to universities, and then to be allowed to actually get degrees from them, even brilliant women like Emmy Noether. They were not thrown open to women at all. And then, yes women read books and develop theories and do independent research. What kept you reading past this point?

I definitely raised an eyebrow at those passages. There are a few things in here that have made me think "that's outdated and/or bullshit" but there's enough undeniable gold to justify reading it to the end. I have a similar approach to reading Ayn Rand. There's great stuff in there but not without some diatribes of little value along the way.

An interesting book. But I wonder if I would have taken it seriously if I hadn't started unplugging already. No More Mr Nice Guy did a good job of starting the unplugging process.

An e-reader is an extremely good investment.

The manipulated man is one of the most noteworthy red pill books there is out there, I agree.

Read history, read evolutionary psychology, read things on marketing and how PR works.

Reading history, knowing history benefits you in being a man. Think about it. You learn from the examples of great men, kings, history changers while living your life in a way that YOU AVOID THE MISTAKES OF EMPERORS. It makes you powerful day to day. You avoid short sightedness and think in the long term

No more Mr Nice guy indeed. Winner framework all the time, no thinking of having a cute attitude-less girlfriend anymore. Red pill helped me convince myself that attitude-less love does not exist except in manga.

Finished reading it today. I thought I had this all figured out. But the first couple pages of it lured me in.

The first example given was the woman with the broken down car. Back in the day I would've simply thought of her as dumb and incapable of doing the job herself. I would have gone about my day thinking myself so much smarter than her, stewing in self satisfaction.

You have to set aside your own ego to realize that yes, you are being used and she knows it.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
