1) The Four Hour Work Week
What ?t ?s about: A how-to gu?de on dramat?cally reduc?ng the amount of t?me you spend on stuff you don’t l?ke as self improvement books for men – 4 elements. A parad?gm buster of ep?c proport?ons.
What ?s does: G?ves you clar?ty on what matters ?n your l?fe and what you need to make ?t happen (f?nanc?ally and psycholog?cally). H?nt: The answer does NOT ?nvolve compound ?nterest.
? pray to Thor, God of Thunder and k?ng of the Avengers: May you f?nd th?s book before you’ve ?nvested your t?me and psych?c well-be?ng ?n cl?mb?ng the corporate ladder. ?f th?nk?ng of your job gets you down and you don’t have the plan to get out FOR GOOD ?n the next 2 years, stop read?ng now, and p?ck up th?s book.
T?m says ?t best: most people’s ?dea of a job “?s pred?cated on the assumpt?on that you d?sl?ke what you are do?ng dur?ng the most phys?cally capable years of your l?fe. Th?s ?s a nonstarter—noth?ng can just?fy that sacr?f?ce.” And after years of ?nvest?ng your energy ?nto someth?ng, you aren’t really even pass?onate about “your job descr?pt?on becomes your self descr?pt?on.”
Th?s book tears that parad?gm apart and g?ves you the perspect?ve to become so much more than your job t?tle. ?t w?ll help you focus on the most ?mportant th?ngs ?n l?fe and free your t?me to l?ve fully.
2) Sex God Method (sorry, th?s one ?s tough to f?nd these days)
What ?s ?s about How to be better at sex. Pretty stra?ght forward.
What ?s does: Teaches you that sex ?snot mechan?cal. Good sex has l?ttle to do w?th durat?on, or measurements, or numbers or all the th?ngs young boys tease one another about. ?t has everyth?ng to do w?th frames and commun?cat?on.
Stat?st?cally speak?ng, you’re probably pretty average at sex. And you almost def?n?tely rate yourself better than you are. Good news. You can JUMP ?n the ranks ?n 24 hours by read?ng one book. No l?e.
Of all these books, th?s one ?s the one that you can ?mplement ?n full force TODAY. You don’t need to pract?ce your techn?que. You don’t need to learn a secret new way to thrust.
Great sex ?snot about techn?cal prowess. Great sex ?s about emot?onal arousal.
Read th?s and you’ll be better than 97% of guys by TON?GHT. For real.
Be?ng awesome at sex ?s a superpower. Trust me when ? say that ?t w?ll affect your relat?onsh?ps ?n every s?ngle way. Even ?f you th?nk you know everyth?ng there ?s to know on the subject, th?s book ?s worth a read.
3) How to W?n Fr?ends and ?nfluence People
What ?t ?s about: How to make the people around you happ?er wh?le gett?ng more of what you want and need from your relat?onsh?ps.
What ?s does: Makes you a better person. Destroys sh?tty hab?ts and replaces them w?th ones that w?ll make people feel good be?ng around you.
• Help?ng me conv?nce my employer to let me work remotely from New York C?ty
• Countless free ch?potle burr?tos
• Pretty much every pos?t?ve ?nteract?on ? have
How to W?n Fr?ends ?s one of those books ?’ll need to read every few months for the rest of my l?fe. ?t ?s that ?mportant.
Forget that ?t has the worst name of all the terr?bly-named books on th?s l?st. How to W?n Fr?ends ?s bas?cally the How To Gu?de for the human race. Don’t m?ss ?t.
?f you’re good w?th people, ?f you have healthy relat?onsh?ps, ?f you can lead and persuade and make people feel good about be?ng around you, you’ll l?ve a charmed l?fe.
4) S?x P?llars of Self Esteem
Th?s book ?s fantast?c, but couldn’t qu?te make the mandatory l?st. The gulf ?s large. The above 4 books CHANGED MY L?FE. For me, the S?x P?llars ?s just regular awesome-sauce.
Read th?s book to ?mprove “your reputat?on w?th yourself.” ?t’s become a cl?che that some of the most successful people–the ones who run the?r own bus?ness, date countless supermodels, and act l?ke the happ?est people ?n the world–really feel awful. ?t’s because of garbage self-esteem.
?mprove your self-esteem and you’ll feel fundamental “alr?ght” ?n the world.
?f you doubt you can do the awesome th?ngs deta?led ?n the other books, read th?s book. ?f you th?nk you are God’s g?ft to everyone you meet, read th?s book. ?f you can read, read th?s book.
