Format: Taschenbuch
This book gives a very subjective view on one possible way of dealing with life for men. It covers problems of career, women and sexuality. It does not try to give proof of the position given. It is interesting for men AND women.

It gives great observations of the author on the nature of feelings of two different sexes. In all there are about 50 relatively small chapters (1-3 pages), some of the topics repeat. Every chapter has been an interesting point to think about. You dont neccessarily need to take authors point of view, but his view is definitely enriching for your life.

Plainly and simply one of the best books I ever read about men and women in my entire life and an eye-opener as big as The Mystery Method. Everyone that claims or aspires to truly be "a real man" (not to be confused with a macho) should read this book. Really amazing stuff.

Lots of good, lots of bad 1. Juli 2012
Von Janus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, if I wasn't already familiar with the good ideas in this book, I would have summarily dismissed the whole thing as feel-good spiritual nonsense. Deida's writing looks like mine when I just start writing what I feel without really trying to make any logical sense. The effect on me while reading was that even though I knew in my head that the words were gibberish, I knew exactly what he was trying to say and which important concepts he was trying to impart. It was an odd experience.

The good:
- Not only does the book start from the premise that there IS a desirable middle ground between being a timid wuss of a man-boy and being a knuckle-dragging, chauvinistic thug; the whole book attempts to be a manual on how to become that middle ground. I would say it's even a good start at succeeding.
- Emphasis on living in pursuit of your own purpose. Not your dad's, not your girlfriend's, not that of disembodied pop culture. Yours.
- The fundamental principle of giving to the world instead of taking.
- The focus on rooting out insecurity.
- The discussions about fundamental differences between masculine and feminine. If you take away nothing other than the realization that there are in fact big differences, the book is worth the read.
- Discussions on things like ego death, living consciously, and the notion of "emptiness." These are basically repackaged Buddhist and samurai concepts. They aren't new, but they are important.

The bad:
- If I read the words "truth" or "love" one more time I thought I might try to reach through my Kindle and choke the author. I disagree with the top positive reviewer: the writing got repetitive VERY quickly.
- The spiritual slant of the writing probably alienates a lot of readers, including me. Luckily it didn't get that bad until later in the book.
- When trying to make legitimate points, like how women often say what they feel instead of what they think, the extremity of his examples undermine him and just make him sound ridiculous. It's no wonder so many women take offense at this book, and it didn't have to be that way.
- Sometimes his writing actually IS just feel-good nonsense. I notice this when he covers the most sensitive subjects, like how men will be attracted to multiple women and how women become less physically attractive as they age. In these subjects, he covers up what he really wants to say in flowery gibberish. This is upsetting to me because he spends the first half of the book preaching about being 100% open and truthful and how real men never hold anything back. Apparently Deida isn't a "superior man" even by his own definition.

Conclusion: It's worth a read, but take it with a HUGE grain of salt.

A book for every man to read, and for their women to read too 29. November 2007
Von Mama on the Go - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I first saw this book on my husband's bookshelf before we were married, and I borrowed and read it. My thoughts at the time: Wow, if this man really believes and lives the principles in this book, he is the one for me! Four years of married bliss and a 3-year-old child later, I still think this. David Deida's basic premise: there is a "Way of the Superior Man" that both includes and transcends the "tough" concept of masculinity of our ancestors, and the "sensitive man" concept of more recent years, that frees a man to be both powerful and purposeful, and also feeling and spiritually alive. This has profound effects in all areas of a man's life from work to sex to relationships with women. I can attest to the value of this premise from my husband's success in his career, our marriage/sexual relationship, and as a father and a spiritual being. Being a superior man is not necessarily an easy path, but hugely rewarding. I highly recommend this book to women as well as Deida's books "Dear Lover" and "It's a Guy Thing" to better understand healthy masculine/feminine dynamics and deepen their relationships with men.

For those who feel an author must be "credentialed" (MD or PhD or whatever) to offer this type of advice, or who are looking for hard data research to back up the claims he makes, this book may disappoint. I would just encourage such readers to suspend judgement long enough to give the book a read, take what they find to ring true and useful and leave the rest. There is a lot of value here, and I have found it to be "proven" in my own experience with men and as a woman.

Just plain terrible! 31. Januar 2013
Von A. Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
I greatly anticipated the arrival of this audio book. I quickly discovered though that the teaching sessions are not an abridged or unabridged version of the book but rather an expounding of its principles. I'm sure I got every idea presented in the book and then some though. I've never had a harder time getting through an audio book! I'm not averse to new age lingo and feel good fluff but this book was just plain rediculous. First of all his voice gets annoying very quickly and I think quite literally every sentence ends with the phrase "give your deepest love" or "from your deepest heart" or "give you deepest gift". It's like meeting someone at a party who thinks they know everything and they rant and rant and rant in a stream of thought flow rather than delivering a coherent and distinct message. He actually poses a question at one point to the effect of "would having one sex partner help you to give your deepest gift or would several sex partners be needed?" Let me discuss that with my wife and see how she thinks I should give my "deepest gift". By the way, can the phrase "give your deepest gift" be any more vague and useless???? The book boils down to you being the masculine open ocean of nothingness and maintaining that connection while your lunatic wife/girlfriend/one of many sex partners (which is great too according to him) runs around acting psychotic and complaining because thats what the feminine aspect does! The feminine is a wily tornado of emotions according to Deida. Apparently every woman, when not in her masculine, is effectivly a spoiled 13 year old drama queen. He even alludes to the imagery of Shakti standing over Shiva's dead body holding other heads in her hands and states that men should maintain this blissful death state in order to cope with the manic feminine energy. But the solution to all this complaining, at least one of them, according to Deida, is to pin your woman down and "ravish" her repeatedly. I wanted to enjoy the spiritual aspects of this book, and am very versed in the Eastern spiritual concept of masculine God essence being vast uncreated with the movement of creation being feminine, but this book puts a terrible spin on that. Please dont waste your time on this. I really hated it to say the least.

The Way of the Dysfunctional Relationship 17. Juli 2011
Von Jeremy Arnold - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book after seeing it enthusiastically recommended by various sources online, with some ringing endorsements from a few people, like Ken Wilbur, who I respect. I bought it in spite of knowing that it's big with the PUA community. I was very excited to get the chance to read it, but I must admit that I was extremely disappointed. I never sell my books to the used bookstore when I'm finished, but with this one I just might.

As others have pointed out, Deida has no real professional credentials to fall back on, and his official bio is vague. He considers himself "an entertainer," much like the scam artists who masquerade as "gurus" in other fields. His book comes across as little more than the egotistical blovating of a narcissist who's out to bilk his followers for all the love and attention he can get by regurgitating quasi-spiritual pablum.

Deida's prose is sometimes called "poetic," which is a nice way of saying that he's cheesy, vague, and likes to spout trite New Age cliches as if they were ancient wisdom. This was an immediate turnoff as I began reading. What do phrases like "give your gift" mean, exactly? I still don't know, even after seeing this phrase repeated several hundred times.

There are also a ton of problems with Deida's "masculine/feminine polarity" thesis. Yes, there is something like that going on in relationships between men and women, but Deida's concept is far over reaching and very msyogonistic. For exmple, his "feminine essence" is embodied in a woman who's young and physically attractive... and a mindless basketcase of flighty emotions totally incapable of consistency or controlling herself. When she does develop her "masculine side" to develop some self control and capacity for respect and rational thought, then Deida describes her as becoming an asexual shrew. Either way, a woman is certain to be hell to deal with, in Deida's view. "The Superior Man" just accepts this as true and rolls with the punches she gives him.

However, this conception of women is actually *better* than Deida's conception of the "Superior Man." A man who epitomizes the "masculine polarity" and is supposed to be drawn to the psycho "feminine polarity" is described another badly damaged human being who is solely focused on his own goals (which, oddly, is contradicted by his need to control his own emotions, desires, and ego so that he never upsets a woman in any way), never shows emotion, and will happily put up with all sorts of insane crap from a crazy woman because she's so "feminine." Basically, "The Superior Man" is described as a sociopath. This is seen as the key to having a passionate relationship and the ideal that all couples should aspire to.

If a guy doesn't meet that criteria, then he is a wimp. If he ever falls short of perfection in his "masculine polarity" by losing his cool, setting a boundary with women, or doing anything besides what he wants to do at any given moment, then a woman loses all respect and love for him. This is a recipe for a major complex! A healthy relationship requires communication, boundaries, mutual respect for each other as human beings as well as sex objects. The only "relationship" that Deida's rules might actually apply to would be a quick fling here or there, which is probably why the PUA community and its crazed thinking on gender matters treats this as gospel.

All this criticism aside, there are a few moments of insight throughout the book, such as how it's important for a man to pay attention to a woman's emotions and not try to fix her problems, how women want a man who's steadfast and has a direction and goal in life, and how many women prefer a guy who takes the lead in a relationship and handles the traditional male gender roles. However, these are not worth sifting through the author's bloated, shallow, cliche ridden New Age onanism to find.

Reality Check Needed 6. Oktober 2011
Von Nanci Joan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book with my boyfriend as we are in the beginnings of a monogamous and committed relationship and wish to have a healthy bond on all levels. We read slowly night to night, digesting each paragraph, wanting to understand, and even like, this work. Conclusion: We did not find much rhythm in here to want to live our relationship by. Deida's findings on what a feminine woman is like is "dysfunctional" at best; I would advise a man to get away from this woman Deida describes, or set boundaries until "she" seeks counsel to get her metabolism and heart in order to accept a truly "superior masculine man". The mood swings do not rationalize what a man (or anyone) should tolerate, and I consider myself a "female" woman. What is described therein resembles a flailing woman in her immaturity who does not have her direction in place and resonates as being "spoiled". I don't find these characteristics "female" at all. Female is poised in her grace, dignity, confidence, strength and humility. She looks up to her man and knows how to listen, as well as speak. When she chooses and cares to speak, she does so with love, respect and care for how she is heard. There simply is nothing attractive to me, nor my boyfriend, about the female Deida has laid out in this book. There are about 10 chapters of the 51 that we liked. There were the helpful and succint paragraphs thrown in here and there that were spot on. For the most part, this book is filled with the author's opinions and his convictions. As a woman having done alot of work on herself, I found this book to be out right silly and possibly harmful for couples to follow.
