Publisher's Summary

Positive Masculinity is the newest in a series designed to give men actionable information to build better lives for themselves based on realistic, objective understanding of intersexual dynamics. The audiobook outlines four key themes: red-pill parenting, the feminine nature, social imperatives, and positive masculinity.   

Free of today's pop-psychology pablum, "Red-Pill Parenting" is aimed at fathers (and fathers-to-be) who want more in-depth information about raising their sons and daughters in a red-pill-aware outlook. While not an instruction manual, it presents insights into developing a parenting style founded on red-pill principles and informs fathers of what they can expect their kids to encounter from a feminine-primary social order determined to "educate" them.   

"The Feminine Nature" is a collection of revised and curated essays that address the most predictable aspects of the female psyche. It outlines the evolutionary and socialized reasons for women’s most common behavioral patterns, their motives, and how men can build this awareness into a more efficient way of interacting with women accordingly.   

"The Social Imperatives" section details how the female psyche has expanded into Western (and Westernizing) cultural narratives, social dictates, and legal and political legislation. This is the feminine imperative writ large, and this section explores how feminism, women’s sexual strategy, and their primary life goals have molded our society into the gynocracy we take for granted today. Also detailed is the "women’s fempowerment" narrative and the perpetuation of blank-slate egalitarian equalism masking a form of female supremacism that has fundamentally altered Western cultures and values.   

The last section, "Positive Masculinity", is comprised of newly expanded essays that will give men an informed idea of how to define masculinity from a conventional, evolved, and rational perspective.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The entire... book... is read... like this

It’s absolutely terrible to listen to. I have no idea what the guy was thinking while he read it. There are super awkward and inappropriate pauses in every single sentence.

The Narrator is AWFUL

I’ve listened to and enjoyed the two other books in this series but this is by far one of the worst narration jobs I’ve ever heard. It’s waaaay overdone and annoying to listen to for an extended period of time; he’s so dramatic with every single word that I can’t take it seriously. Like, is the dude constipated and trying to make a movement? Try listening to a sample; you’ll see. It’s. Every. Word.
This also seems to be a hack job with the editing as there are multiple glitches and repeats of the same line throughout the first half. It feels like this product was rushed to market without proper refinement.
I appreciate the author’s intent here but this product is the red headed stepchild of the Rational Male series.

Great Content - Horrible Narration

I have hard copies of Rollo's previous two books, but decided to try this one on audio for long drives and commuting to/from work. There is a lot excellent, useful content and stories. However the narriation was absolutely awful!

I know Rollo was doing was doing his friend a favor, but I sincerely home does not use Sam for his next audiobook.

This book is literally dynamite!

There isn’t any reason you should avoid reading this. Regardless of your demographic, this has to be the most quality work in the field of intersexual dynamics! Can’t wait for the fourth book!!!

Don't Sleep On This One!

In usual "burnout" behavior, humans, specifically a lot of men this case, have not stuck with TRM series and seen it through. Book 1 of the series has gotten the most reads, book 2 got a fair amount of reads, and book 3 is the least read, I'm sure, due to the fact that it is the longest entry in the series. Our lack of a decent attention span, and those who just couldn't stand the narration also heavily contribute. That being said, it is only a discredit to ourselves if we don't read this entry in the series, as it may be - arguably - the most important book in the series. Rollo really lays out some of the critical information and connected dots that is relevant to a lot of the societal narratives and movements that we see happening in society right now and relates them to the subject of positive masculinity. At a time when the agenda to emasculate men is at an all-time high and masculinity is on the defense, constantly being assaulted by the general masses, there couldn't be a more perfect time for this book to be read. PLEASE do yourself a favor and read this book, as mentioned, I know there are those who cannot stand the narration by Sam Botta, however, I find that if you speed the narration up to about 1.30x, then it doesn't sound as bad. Trust me, try it.

Sam Botta is not a narrator.

The book itself is nothing short of a bible, a real informative book, it is critical for almost every human male to read.
Mr. Sam Botta was quite bad in the previous 2 books and much worse here.

The long awaited Audible version!

This is the third book in a fantastic series by Rollo Tomassi. I’ve read the paperback, but I’m an audiobook addict, so I’ve been anxiously awaiting this release. So far, so good! Same narrator as the previous two books for consistency. So glad to finally compete the set. Thanks Rollo!

A lot of repetition. Irritating narration.

Well worth a listen.

There’s a lot of repetition and up-selling of additional content.

Listening at 1.25 speed made tolerating the readers voice and ham acting narration style more bearable.

Good content but hammy narration.

I have ordered a hard copy of this book to read. The narrator has a good voice but hams up almost every word, which is distracting.

loads of unnecessary BS

Loads of stuff repeating it self. loads of wining, crying how men are bad treated and women are just monsters exploiting men. couldn't go half way, compared to first book total BS. And naration is minus five stars. Rolo, have you even listen to it before publishing? Was it mayor Adam West, from Family Guy reading that? AWFUL!

Read too slow

The contents is very good but whoever they hired to read it read it incredibly slow I had to put it on 1.6x speed to make it even relative to a normal speaking speed.

probably the most annoying narrator, ever.

the whole book, three words at a time, dramatic overtones, like a movie credit, it's just endless, could've been a good book

Is this still Sam?

As I am familiar with the author I have no issues with the content that is always excellent. Having listened to the first 2 books (enjoing them) I am wondering what happened here as I just can't listen to the way this is read.

Learning To Love One's Self

I was recommended this book by a friend and I feel I have learned a lot about not only what chicks are really like, but also what I'm like and how I treat myself like I'm not valuable. When we put women on a pedestal and put everything before us, we end up treating ourselves really poorly, so hopefully more people can listen to this audiobook and learn what I did.

Turtle speed narrating and circular ramble

The audio almost put me to sleep with the extraordinary slow pace of narration. I was required to increase the reading speed to 1.8x to listen at a reasonable speed, the only problem was that the Narrator now sounds like Duff Man from the Simpsons now. The author repeats the same content over and over. Get to the point damn it! Additionally, the author repeatedly and annoyingly suggests buying his other books...I would not buy any of these if the are the same as this book.

Not as good as the original Rational Male book

Fifty minutes into the audiobook and there was not much advice given to the reader
