Publisher's Summary

The Rational Male is a rational and pragmatic approach to intergender dynamics and the social and psychological underpinnings of intergender relations. The book is the compiled, 10-year core writing of author/blogger Rollo Tomassi from therationalmale.com.

Rollo Tomassi is one of the leading voices in the globally growing, male-focused online consortium known as the "Manosphere". Outlined are the concepts of positive masculinity, the feminine imperative, plate theory, operative social conventions, and the core psychological theory behind game awareness and "red pill" ideology. Tomassi explains and outlines the principles of intergender social dynamics and foundational reasoning behind them.

    "Good shit"

    A little too conspiratorial but he makes good points. I think he tries to make sense of many unconscious behaviors displayed. by women but at the same time can be argued in multiple ways

    Incredible. You're hilarious and you empowered the shit out of me. Pretty new to RedPill but would love to talk sometime. You should put Preventative Medicine on Audible as well - would love to hear more from you boss!

    "Highly, highly recommend!"

    This book describes and helps you understand the sociological and psychological reason behind much of what is embedded in our culture in terms of masculinity and feminism.

    I am a 22 year old male, in shape, single, and on a successful path in life, therefore I thought I was a prize to women but for some reason, the most of the women I was trying to get with "didn't see it" or I was (in my head) "too mature for they're linear cognitive functioning for our age". There are a few things I was completely missing. Half way through the book I felt my actions changing, mindset changing, and sure enough I have had positive results (I'll save the dirty details). I believe the main reason was that this book gave me the edge of confidence and slight change in mindset that I needed to make it work better for me.

    I lacked the understanding of how women worked psychologically, and based my "game" off of the wrong concepts to appeal to women. I already had most of the characteristics necessary to appeal to women, however this book allowed me to do some necessary fine tuning to my 'game'. This book will make you look back and realize where you went wrong in past relations, and why women make the decisions they do, and take the actions they do; even if it seems it makes no since on a functional level.

    "Very Mind Opening"

    The author gives a very mind opening look at relationship dynamics and male and female perspectives. I'm applying the principles, and seeing immediate results.

    "Life changing work on Relationships"
    What did you like most about The Rational Male?

    The Idea of the red pill and blue pill.
    Realising why past relationships failed.
    How in depth the books goes and the links to psychology.


    What other book might you compare The Rational Male to, and why?

    The Game by Neil Strauss which was also a book that opened my eyes.


    Have you listened to any of Sam Botta’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    There are slight errors with audio where a take wasn't edited out, nothing that ruins it fortunately. The narration is great.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Rational Male


    Any additional comments?

    Check it out!

    "Being a better man."

    Great book regarding male and female dynamics, not a "how to be" book but a book about ideas and how social engineering enslaves men by shaming.

    "Useless. Get No More Mr. Nice Guy instead. "

    Book aims to define what alpha male is. But fails at it. Repeatedly. Apparently it's Corey Worthington.
