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.

Powerful!!

After listening to This book via audio I felt like all I wanted to do was take my partner like I've never taken her before!! The material has given me a way to give of myself to where I can die with no regrets when we're finished. It's allowed me to see a different perspective while gaining new ways to connect with her. I highly recommend it if you are a man that wants to dig deep and connect in ways you never thought possible!

Should be read by every man who wants to find his highest purpose, to remain grounded, to learn from his ongoing mistakes, and to share his gifts with the world.

about 25% useful

I usually read reviews and breakdowns of a book before purchasing so I can get a sense of what the author has to offer. I neglected to do that before buying this book and I regret it. the first hour of the book is wasted using nonsense terms to describe things no one has ever proven about people. The last hour of the book is equally useless unless you're really going to put yourself through these partner exercises listening to his voice. His delivery was god-awful. I would never read another book written by this author especially if he's the one doing the reading. there was a middle section in there that actually offered some reliable and useful information about how to check ourselves and our emotions when interacting with others. I feel like I wish I could only have bought that chapter and not wasted my time with the rest of this nonsense.

The guy talking was bad

It made me feel like I was getting advice from a stoned surfer dude, and sounded unintelligent.

Don't waste a free credit on this

If men are from Mars and women are from Venus then David Deida is from Pluto because he clearly has no understanding of either. Bad advice for young men.

Thank God for Narration Speed 1.5x

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only if they had already read "Way of the Superior Man".This audiobook is the &quotTeaching Sessions", not the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Deida?

A professional voice actor. Simon Vance, or Bronson Pinchot.

Was The Way of the Superior Man worth the listening time?

Yes, at 1.5x, at which speed it sounds like normal. How can Deida talk so slow?

Every Man, AND Women, should listen to this one!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have talked about this book to many of my friends already.
A girl sent this to me in a text, so I immediately bought the audible book and listened 3 times.
It is the kind of book you use as a reference and listen over and over.

What other book might you compare The Way of the Superior Man to and why?

I have listened and ready many books in the emotional intelligence category, such as Think and Grow Rich, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life...ect, not exactly in this genre. ....Didn't think I needed it. After listening to it just a bit, I realized this was an awesome book.
The writer does NOT waist time blabbing on about his credentials or off topic nonsense.... He is ON point all the way through.

Have you listened to any of David Deida’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No not yet.... I will be now!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!

Any additional comments?

Get it.
