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.

    "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'.

    "One step closer to my woman"

    I recently heard Alison Armstrong's audio In Sync with the Opposite Sex and she reports that men basically want sex and appreciation from their women. This book helped remind me that my woman also wants to tap into my calm single-focused-male-nature as a refuge from her feminine diffuse awareness.

    My wife and I have gone deeper in our intimacy based on the shifts related to the gift that I am to her and the gift she is to me.

    Not a revolution and still a subtle transformation on our journey together.

    Cheers

    Jamey

    "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!

    "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.

    "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.

    "Self-Relection and Introspection"

    Book outlined masculinity and femininity to help me grasp it as a vantage point internally. Challenged my inner self by considering both how I'm seen within as well as externally. Great overall delivery and presentation.

    "Get vulnerable"

    Open up and get vulnerable. I come back to this book a few times per year now to continue and maintain personal growth.

    "Most rediculous new age BS I've ever heard in my"

    This book was painful to listen to. This moron of an author has somehow become a dating/ spiritual guru? Talking about visualizing murdering your lover and the women cutting off the man's head to get in touch with her dark side! WTF??? Please don't listen to these absurd 5 star reviews. Only a felon would give this book a 5 star review.
