All Red Pill Sidebar In One PDF

After the whole week of staying up late, working late in the night, battling with formatting hell and typos, I have finally finished compiling all the information from the sidebar into one e-book.

Like every new user, I was too, guilty of procrastinating and not studying the sidebar material. One of the things that turned me off was that the sidebar material was all over the place: different blogs, websites, fonts, color schemes (I took care of that now by making this e-book). I just couldn't concentrate. The length of the posts didn't help too.

But the way I see it now, you have nothing to do here, if you are not prepared to sit, read and study the sidebar. If you're not prepared to read hundreds of pages of eye-opening material - your loss.

There has been big drop in the quality of the posts (this is throw-away account, I've been here for a year or so) lately. What I would suggest to everyone is to sit and start reading the sidebar again (or especially for the first time!). Sometimes you just need to return back to the basics. It's a really long read, but it's also worth it! After all, this is the best red pill knowledge that is out there and you may read just the sidebar and nothing else ever again on this sub, if you want.

So, click on the link. Download the sidebar an start reading it, I've done my job.

Also, I'm not the best designer, so if anyone wants to design a new cover for the book, feel free to post your suggestions. If people like your cover, I will include it in the next version.

Hey man I saw your reply and I'm a graphic design major as a senior in college, so I figured I would make you a design real quick. This is just a preview just so you can see the graphic. If you want to use it, I can adjust the dimensions to make it the size of the cover and send you the file. I can also help you with other parts of the design in the book as well if you need me to. Thanks again for putting together the sidebar info. Cheers.

What do you use to convert it to epub and mobi?

3 upvotes • [deleted] • 4 years ago


Did a bit of dabbling and made an epub with decent formatting, though has some odd page breaks and page numbers are in random places on the page. Could be done better at your end exporting to a more convenient file type from whatever program you used to make the PDF and then converting it I'd imagine.

3 upvotesGuruDev10004 years ago

You're right, the formatting is fucked up for epub.

How did you make the PDF? If in Indesign, then it has an epub export feature

1 upvotesReastruth4 years ago

This should be on the sidebar. Thanks for this.

1 upvotesdestraht4 years ago

In the absence of retail quality formatting I think that the best way to create an epub is to simply copy all of the text straight into Libreoffice and to then export that to PDF. Then there is Calibre for creating epubs from that and it won't include all of the page numbering as if was content.

14 upvotestriumphman844 years ago

A "native" epub/mobi version is usually way better than a converted one. Auto-converted files often have weird stuff like page numbers in the middle of the text, which makes sense considering how auto-conversion works.

True, but I don't have time to make MOBI file from scratch. I've deleted page numbers for MOBI film, but formatting is still far from perfect. Does the job for those who want to read tho.

Outstanding work. Seriously, this could be a major development. Copyright is a tricky thing, but as you are the editor, what is your position regarding this work? I'd love to see it freely distributed far and wide. Perhaps with a way to send it anonymously via email.

Consider, gentlemen, what would happen if the entire male freshman class at any given university was gifted this pdf? If only 10% of them read it and went RP, that could be . . . very interesting.

Not so certain. It's obscure enough to make it tantalizing. The sort of thing you start urban legends about. If he decides to expand it beyond the immediate sidebar, perhaps The Red Pill Player's Handbook?

3 upvotes_aroo [OP]4 years ago

I'm fine with everything you've suggested, but you would really need to ask people that have actually contributed to the content of the sidebar.

All the bloggers, posters, authors (it would be hard to get permission from authors of the books that want to earn money), contributors and so on.

In terms of content I'm no one.

2 upvotesIanIronwood4 years ago

Perhaps direct links to their Amazon/other paid outlets as compensation? Rollo, any comment?

1 upvotestrpftw4 years ago

Also I wouldn't share it with young adults and freshmen. That's quite a silly idea. They have so much to learn before RP. They have so much to improve about themselves before they even start getting a lot of girls. Many will have trouble understanding it if they never experienced anything. Finally, what happens when everyone is RP, women will adapt, competition will get fierce, and we will have to rewrite a lot of the original concepts as things evolve. No longer will much of RP philosophy be effective if the top 80% of men today become as good as the top 20% of men. Not to mention the amount of betas abusing RP ideas without understanding them. Let RP grow naturally without trying to "advertise it".

If anything I would only share the unfairness parts of it to get guys politically active in fighting for the rights of men in the law.

1 upvotesCptDefB4 years ago

If all you said were true, this entire thing could be scrapped and we could all just leave copies of The Manipulated Man laying around everywhere.

Using competition as a reason, even if it comes secondary, is operating on a scarcity mentality (there are more women than men on the planet, just throwing that out there). To address the primary, what is it that men are supposed to learn before RP becomes relevant? A rhetorical, but before you even compose an answer in your head consider that the institutions that RP theory goes against are shaping the realities of individuals from an elementary school age.

0 upvotestrpftw4 years ago

It's not scarcity mentality. It's the fact that I don't think many guys deserve shit. Some guys are abusive, assholes, or just plain do nothing to improve themselves except to look a little attractive. Especially guys who are like still in college etc. I was like that too once upon a time.

Yeah you have a point about that. I just don't think we need exponential growth either.

In revolutionary ideas, those that grow too fast sometimes develop a very negative counter-opinion. Sometimes the threat is that there are people posing as red pill and ruining its reputation (notice a lot of betas commenting sometimes and even giving advice that are incorrect).

A slower pace of growth results in longevity and the stability of principles.

Some ideologies grow so fast that no one can even define what the hell it is anymore and tons of people just claim they are that way.

1 upvotesCanard_wc4 years ago

To help the diffusion of the RP an increase the book read rate, the printed version should not use TRP as title. Instead maybe hijacking some pop culture terms related to mens improvement.

A title like "the real Bro-code" referring to the how I met your mother show would trigger some curiosity in someone finding the printed version of the sidebar.

8 upvotesThePedanticF0x4 years ago

It would be wise to suggest mandatory download and offline reading of the sidebar material to newcomers before they contribute posts and comments. I think an overhaul of the sidebar material is also long overdue.

13 upvotesredpillalphamale4 years ago

I've read the sidebar material in my Kindle using GLOs red pull handbook. Honestly, after that I didn't have to come to this sub much again. Especially with the drop in quality and the many low quality betas up voting stupid shit and down voting useful stuff. I'm pretty sure 80% of this sub is bottom 20% of male hierarchy. Which is not a bad thing since they want to improve. However reddit is a very democratic forum and if those people have up vote down vote and posting privileges it inevitably lowers the quality of the sub. Which is what happened here. I strongly encourage people to read this pdf and GTFO of this sub. They will save precious time and they won't even have a need for this forum anyway anymore.

3) Read all RP books (I have a nice list if anyone is interested).

4) Check TRP once a month for the top posts of that month.

3 upvotesbuddboy4 years ago

Thank you so much for this! for the first time I am making progress getting through the sidebar, I have the pdf bookmarked and have been reading some each day.

There is however a major problem.

The section "THE CULTURAL THESIS" contains factual inaccuracies. I only made about a page and a half when some suspicious "facts" were confirmed by a quick google search to be false. Idk where the author of that section got his info, but everything I read in just the first page or two was blatantly wrong, unsubstantiated, unprovable or otherwise suspicious. Considering this was in the beginning of his "thesis" I must assume everything fallowing that intro is based on those fallacies and therefore false as well. For this reason I am completely skipping that section until it is edited.

It really is a shame because the first sections about stories of men being brainwashed by feminism their whole lives were really well done but the Cultural Thesis section can only be the result of someone who was equally brainwashed by a masculinist his whole life.

There is no honor in spreading our cause if we have to lie to do so, and I do not want to be affiliated with an organization of group that spreads false information.

I am only bringing this up because I think it is best for all of us. This material needs to be fact checked and re edited immediately. There will be smarter and more knowledgeable men and women stumbling upon that pdf and finding more mistakes than I did and discrediting everything we have worked for.

3 upvotesRedjatis4 years ago

First I want to thank you for your time and effort, downloading and stashing this pdf away right away. Although I do have a few suggestions.

1.) Table of Contents possibly with hyperlinks. One of the Advantages of the sidebar is being able to have it organized like chapters to research so to speak. Any good book with chapters has a table of contents, I don't need to explain the merit of this.

2.) You include all the hyperlinks in said articles, but no link to the main articles themselves, I would recommend a hyperlink or something underneath the main header underlined titles. (Although it is unlikely that everyone would want to reference that article directly, this gives your book both the function of the Reddit sidebar, as well as the pdf set up. This also allows these posts to gain much deserved traffic and credit to the original authors.

3.) The Misandry Bubble & The Manipulated Man's subsections initially seem to be their own sections completely. The only difference I could tell from the Beginning of the Book to the next sections or chapters is the lack of a red underlining. I don't find this very intuitive, and it was initially confusing. This also prevents me from skimming through at a quick pace looking for specifics (Due to the general land marking.) I recommend slightly changing the color, or even lowering the font a little.

Edit: Sentence structure.

A little late, but TRP is all about shifting mind sets. You're trading one lens for another, for some this is natural, for others they experience head aches and battle choking the pill down. Here's a general checklist to start applying the concepts after you've observed and read them.

1) Focus on your dreams/aspirations 2) Make money doing what I said above 3) Learn and apply game in nearly all of your environments 4) Lift 5) Learn a martial art 6) Become an intellectual, read more. 7) Become interesting. Find hobbies and deep passions besides step 1 such as music, painting, boxing, chess, etc. 8) Learn to realize you are the great catch

This is an actual book of an amazing sub Reddit all put together and if lucky can offer long term value to society, from what I understand that's sorta what you were saying although it didn't seem like it at first. Whatever, also I'd read nmmng but I have no clue what the heck that is
