Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers by Dr. Karyl McBride

Roosh V Forum member AnonymousBosch has often argued that men can better understand modern women by boning up on personality disorders as opposed to evolutionary psychology. Because Millennials are so damaged as a generation—their hypersensitivity to criticism, lack of social graces, and conditioned narcissism being prime examples—traditional precepts about courtship (as well as a lot […]

Naughty Nomad’s Guide to New York by Mark Zolo

Naughty Nomad’s Guide to New York is by far the most detailed guide on getting laid in a particular city I’ve ever read. Most of the city/country guides I’ve read, such as Roosh’s various Bang books, stick to a general overview of the country or city in question and what its girls are like. This […]

POPPPAPPP by Momus

The latest novel from Scottish postmodern musician Momus (real name: Nicholas Currie), POPPPAPPP is pretty much a stylistic continuation of his previous release, Herr F. The plot—if you can call it that—revolves around two British graphic designers who’ve been kidnapped by a Syrian terrorist group that bases its belief system around the lyrics of a […]

Gorilla Mindset by Mike Cernovich

Gorilla Mindset is one of the most life-changing books you can buy. Not wholly, not completely. Mike Cernovich’s handbook on self-improvement and personal psychology cribs from a number of different sources, most notably Dr. Shad Helmstetter’s classic study on self-esteem, What to Say When You Talk to Your Self. But what distinguishes Gorilla Mindset from […]

Gavin’s War by Jamie Mason

Gavin’s War by Jamie Mason is a pretty good sci-fi novella for those who enjoy post-apocalyptic fiction. While I’m not as familiar with Mason’s work as my friend Ann Sterzinger is (it was she who introduced me to him), Gavin’s War has definitely got me interested in his other novels. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s […]

Stoic Paradoxes by Cicero (Translated by Quintus Curtius)

Quintus Curtius’ translation of Stoic Paradoxes manages to accomplish something that few books do: make a complex philosophy accessible to the average man. People know about Stoicism in the loosest sense as a philosophy that encourages men to reign in destructive emotions and become resilient as a means of dealing with life’s challenges. Hell, “stoic” […]

Donald Trump: Zombie Hunter by Jon Davidson

Donald Trump: Zombie Hunter is a true rarity: a cross-genre book that manages to keep the best aspects of both genres. The debut release of Jon Davidson, Zombie Hunter is a short story (about nine pages) that satirizes modern American politics. In the story, The Donald has become president, vanquishing America’s foes with his might. […]

A Date on Campus: Jackie’s First Frat Party by Emily Roberts

NOTE: I originally meant to publish this review at Return of Kings a few months ago, but I shelved it due to lack of time. In the time between when I first started writing the article and now, A Date on Campus was removed from Amazon for unknown reasons. I hope the author puts it […]

A Second Round on the House by Blair Naso

Reviewing A Second Round on the House, the sophomore poetry collection by my former Return of Kings colleague Blair Naso, puts me in a tough spot. On the surface, this book seems like it’d be better than his previous effort, The Death of Ideology: it’s noticeably bereft of the meandering prose pieces that weighed down […]

The Six-Figure Erotica Author: How I Make Six Figures Self-Publishing Erotica by Jade K. Scott

This is the best book on making money online I’ve ever read… that wasn’t written by me. As I’ve written before, over a year ago, I had a brief career trolling the manosphere as “Virginia Robinson,” soi-disant submissive Christian housewife and budding erotica author. While I made a decent chunk of change off of “Virginia’s” […]
