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.

    "Garbage"

    Making use of my cold objective masculine, I've decided to utilize my inner feminine and 'gift the world' by helping you avoid this book. I feel better already.

    "Heavy on Rhetoric, Light on Content"

    I was pretty stoked to listen to this program, but it is beyond disappointing. The author basically has one very tenuous theory that he restates over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again over the course of 5 hours. It's touchy-feely psycho-babble at it's worst.

    "Makes even an inferior man yawn"

    This took every ounce of strength for me to endure two hours of the author's psycho-garbage. Most men today would never relate to the author's thinking. It may have been ground breaking in the hippie era, but I believe we have moved past that time. Don't waste your time because I believe that anything you do as a man will be superior to hearing this book.

    "Not what I expected"

    Hmm with all due respect the book made some sense but sounds like it was written by either a woman or a homosexual hippy. There is very little masculine in this book. If the great men of the present and past listened to it they would have the author killed. The book added no value and was very hard listening. It was more like a mystical hypnosis tape. I would not recommend this book to anyone with testosterone.

    "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.

    "Mixed Bag"

    Deida approaches his topic with a take-my-word-for-it attitude. At lot of what he says is questionable. Much of what he recommends probably works for most people. But why it works is not convincingly supported by his philosophy and likely better understood via other approaches. If you like Deida's opinions, you'll probably like this book. If don't share Deida's opinions, this book is unlikely to change your mind, or be an interesting and enjoyable listen.

    Better writing and material.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Deida again?

    No


    Would you listen to another book narrated by David Deida?

    Not a chance

    "Maybe its because I'm a woman..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Men might think this book makes sense or sounds good, I checked it out at the insistence of my boyfriend, but i just could not take it seriously.
