The Real Right Returns: A Handbook for the True Opposition by Daniel Friberg

The Real Right Returns is one of those books I still recommend despite feeling a little mislead by the title. A political manifesto-cum-how-to guide from Daniel Friberg, a founder of Arktos and Right On (the latter of which I write for regularly), The Real Right Returns serves as an interesting primer on New Right/alt-right politics […]

In the Sky by Octave Mirbeau (Translated by Ann Sterzinger)

In this video, I review Ann Sterzinger’s translation of Octave Mirbeau’s In the Sky. I discuss the nature of Louis-Ferdinand Céline-style “loser lit,” why the book succeeds as a comic portrait of male loserdom, how reading the book gave me a new perspective on Sterzinger’s own novels, and more. You can read my written review […]

What to Say When You Talk to Your Self by Dr. Shad Helmstetter

Nearly three years ago, I read a book that changed my life. I’ve talked a lot about What to Say When You Talk to Your Self before, because it’s just that important of a book. Dr. Shad Helmstetter’s masterpiece is a must-own because it attacks the root of what’s wrong with your life: your mental […]

Valencia by James Nulick

Valencia is the literary equivalent of trying to walk down the street while some asshole chucks rotten eggs at you from the safety of his pedovan. The sophomore effort of James Nulick (I haven’t read his first novel Distemper yet, though I plan to), Valencia features gripping stories, catchy turns of phrase, and some genuinely […]

SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police by Vox Day

SJWs Always Lie is a rarity in the realm of political writing: a book that gives you concrete steps on how to deal with the problems it attacks. Vox Day’s handbook on dealing with the social justice menace is easily one of the most important books released this year. With SJW mob attacks on “racist,” […]

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 […]

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 […]
