Publisher's Summary

Powerful mindset principles combined with real world practical information to transform your life: The 88 Laws of the Masculine Mindset

This book is not like other books. It is written and designed to be practical and useful. The problem with most self-help books is that people get bored and don't finish them. This audiobook can be started at any chapter and can be listened to as you see fit.

The book is a collection of the most important mindset and personal development laws or guidelines for men.

The laws are listed from one to 88. The format allows you to load up 88 important ideas into your mind very quickly.

This book is designed to be an introduction to all of the most valuable personal development ideas I have used to change and improve my own life. If you had one hour to find the most important ideas to change your life, then this book will help you achieve that goal.

We live in a world that is out of balance and one big reason for that is the lack of mindset control. Your mindset is the software you load into your mind. If you don't take conscious control over that then you might find yourself ending up at a place you did not want to be.

Most people on this planet just go with the flow and have no idea that they are going in the wrong direction in life. They are being affected by outside influences and don't even know it. When you understand and accept this reality then you can change it. You can take your power back. You can start living life on your own terms.

So if you want to change your life or improve your current position then this book will help you get there.

From this audiobook you will learn:
 

  • The masculine approach to living
  • The most important choice of your life
  • How to take control of your mind
  • How to change your current reality
  • How to start winning in life
  • The things you have to change to become successful
  • How your habits control your life
  • Why you have to believe in yourself
  • How to live with purpose
  • How to transform your life
  • How to live free
  • Much, much more

How to be friendless unlikable and rich

'The 88 Laws of the Masculine Mindset' has a very narrow idea of what masculine means. It is basically equates to 'success at all costs', especially when 'success' means rich and dating hot girls. Does not matter if you end up friendless, alone and pretty much considered a jerk by everyone you know, because you will have succeeded.

Not all of the rules are bad. Some are actually really good (like rule #1 - taking responsibility, even if it's not your fault) but overall this book does not present a picture of what masculinity should be, or what people should strive to be like.

I said you might end up successful but alone because part of the meat it talks about includes saying that spending time with friends is wasted time, that you must be selfish, that you must focuses almost exclusively on your goal. It also says (multiple times) that if anyone says that you have changed and that they like the old you better this is a good thing. Them not liking who you have become is an indication that you are on the right path.

It also says that the 'biggest responsibility' is for a man to be rich. To make a lot of money. Not serving, protecting, honoring, caring, supporting or anything like that. Getting rich.

There are some good rules in here too. It's not all bad. There are also many that are generally good advice and have nothing to do with masculinity. They could be 'laws' given to females and provide just as much benefit.

My issue is not solely with the rules, as there is many good ones, but in how they are presented. The rule itself sounds good and reasonable, and then you read the detail in the chapter and realise how warped the view is.

There is also a whole lot of outdated and wrong 'women are emotional and you shouldn't be emotional, men are rational' type discussions. it's not so much the rules themselves by the condescending way that 'the other' is discussed - called losers, bitches, wimps. Basically a whole lot of disdain for anyone who isn't on the path to his version of success.

Some of the rules (both god and bad ones) in this book include:
- Take ownership of your life, even if it's not your fault. (the good and the bad)
- be the centre of your reality. Make everything revolve around you.
- admire successful people (which sounds fine, until it started describing the opposite as 'disgusting' and 'losers')
- don't be yourself (it not enough)
- don't ask for permission to do what you want to do (it's not your family or friends business what you do)
- find any excuse to win
- don't share your feelings with anyone, because noone cares about them
- become very selfish (your mission should be priority over everything - friends, girlfriend, wife, family, whatever)
- never have a vacation or a break (travelling is fine, if you work while you travel)
- sacrifice short term fun for long term gain
- your mission is priority for your time (they suggest should be 90% of your time)
- make friends with your shadows / dark side (this chapter mentions that you need to embrace the stuff that 'stupidly gets called toxic masculinity' )
- treat 'sheep' with disdain - you are a lion
- meat is the foundation of your diet eat meat and lots of it - it's the source of your masculine power.
- take a holistic approach to improvement
- take risks without a safety net, get out of your comfort zone
- people are not equal,
- action on a mediocre idea is better than no action on a great idea
- become a man who confronts his 'inner bitch'
- winning is important. participation trophies are for losers.
- try things that scare you
- influence the world
- don't settle or quit in any situation
- go on the offense


Narration by Jacob Tyler is good. He has a husky voice that suits the stereotypical 'manly idea, fitting with the author's outlook. He is well paced and clear. The audio is a little frustrating with every single chapter (which are only a few minutes long) starting with 'chapter xxxx, law xxxx'. It didn't need the chapter numbers, because the law numbers made it clear it was a new chapter.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this review voluntarily.

Great one

I really liked that the author not only presented theory but also important steps to achieving mindset. It definitely is a key component of success.

A life-changing listen

This book has taught me exactly what I needed to hear. Where other books are more self-help in general, this book is meant to bring out a true masculine mindset. The laws are well explained and can be applied to everyone's life, regardless of where you are mentally.

Thanks to this book I feel like a stronger, more assured man!

Perfect for Audible listening

It’s not deep in content, more like one liners but that’s what I find suitable for audible listening. Motivational, impactful statements to keep you focused and energized. Long drawn out books lose my intererest.

One of the best on Audible

A strong performance with little excessive nonsense. The audio book is straight to the the point, easy to follow and keeps the reader engaged. It is the type of book you can listen to over and over to reinforce the content. It's a good starter as well and can allow the reader to seek addtional content for further direction
