Publisher's Summary

What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What makes a good lover? If you're a man reading this, you've undoubtedly asked yourself these questions, but you may not have had much luck answering them. Until now.

In The Way of the Superior Man, David Deida explores the most important issues in men's lives, from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality, to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom. Join this best-selling author and internationally renowned expert on sexual spirituality for straightforward advice, empowering skills, body practices, and more to help you realize a life of fulfillment, immediately and without compromise.

"It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart", writes David Deida. "It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine". The Way of the Superior Man presents the ultimate challenge, and reward, for today's man: to discover the "unity of heart and spine" through the full expression of consciousness and love in the infinite openness of the present moment.

    "Somewhat Useful Info"

    I didn't finish this because it started to be a time waster. I picked some useful info in this book but the majority of the info wasn't great. I completed 80% of the book.

    "Woman energy"

    I liked how there was a push to connect to darkness as a form of love. I think it would have been interesting to hear more about forgiveness and shared effort in that pursuit. I think the woman (energy) is more active.

    "A deep book"

    At first I was like "huh"? After listening to it a few times, it's made sense. He's assuming your level of understanding of the world is similar to his.

    Once I figured out his assumptions, the book was easier to digest. If you don't have time to put into listening and thinking deeply about what he is saying, then move on.

    If you found this material interesting you should look at David DeAngleo and/or Hypnotica.

    "Not the audiobook"
    Any additional comments?

    Gets one star since I had the impression that this was the audio version of the book itself. There was no clear sign that it was not, or I missed it. Either way, I am disappointed!

    "Superb! What a find!"

    David's gift to the world through this book is amazing. I feel like Arjuna (the character in Bhagavad Gita) who is coached by Krisna on the battlefield of life, in seeing 'the patterns' beyond the surface appareances....
    As a big reader of personal development I'm not easily impressed, - as most times its the same idea rehashed, over and over again - but David here has something truly original to say and profoundly virtuos at that. For those that seek to truly understand the spirit behind the masculine and feminine energies, and for that matter create deeper relationships, connect with their authentic purpose and embrace the gift of being a man in the world, - look no further.
    Be forewarned, this is not for those that seek easy answers, how to manipulate another to fall in love with you or any 'quick fix' methods that abounds in the relationship guidance section. (try somewhere else, you will be dissapointed with this as some other reviews here reveal)
    This is about creating authenticity and living the truth of your spirit. It's about principles and virtues - 'the dep stuff'.

    "BS"

    I'm just going to have to throw the b*Sh*t flag on this one. This guy spews hours of illogical pseudo-philosophy babble. Not worth the time.

    "Great insight"
    What did you love best about The Way of the Superior Man?

    I enjoyed and feel like I am benefiting from the in depth insight i'm gaining into the concept of polarities.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ...


    What about David Deida’s performance did you like?

    He was good at reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    His voice was incredibly annoying. Sounds...flamboyant. I don't know why, but that is annoying. I'm a man. no problems with gay men. I anticipated a masculine voice...and his voice is not masculine.

    "Stay open minded and becomes a must read!"

    If you're not willing to listen /read more than once don't bother. There's so much good information you should listen to it at least three times in order to understand everything. You will miss things because he has you connecting on one point and miss some of another.
