Many years back a wise man whom I've never met went by the handle of "STR8UP" told me something (I'm not sure these were his words, but the first time I've heard for my younger self) - "build it and they will come". I'm at a point in my life where this rings truer than ever (I'm 35). I see the ramifications in everyday adjustments I make. I believe that reading and learning/experiencing is the key beyond the nominal daily grind and incremental progress. I've read the basics (sometimes more than once) - The Game, 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, How To Win Friends and Influence People, etc. Most recent readings include Dalio's "Principles", Robbin's "Awaken The Giant Within" (oldie but goodie), Peterson's "12 Rules for Life", and currently halfway through "Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics" by Richard Thaler. I have a few fictional books queued up in my Kindle (1984 - yes I'm ashamed I've never read it, Crime and Punishment, and Machiavelli's The Prince), but I'm wondering if any of you have suggestions?

Next books I've been eyeing are "Money: Master The Game" by Robbins and Ferris' "Tools of Titans" (though I've heard mixed reviews about these). Any suggestions? Thank you.

The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand
The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The Fountainhead I think is really good for helping to understand the idea of making yourself your own mental point of origin and letting no person and no thing take you off course.
Atlas is pretty good for seeing Man/Men as the creators and builders. Also good for helping to recognize the dangers that women can pose when they complicate your life rather than complement your life.
Gatsby...Kill. The. Beta. The dangers of Oneitis. Just because someone is rich does not mean they are better than you. Lots more to unpack in this one.

Full disclosure: I was an English teacher for about 10 years so I lean towards the Literature side of things in reading.

PS: Let me know if you get into any of these or the ones that you or others have listed. I'd love to go back and forth about them.

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

I like the audio books personally. I use them during work or driving and jogging. Audible is running a promo for two free audio books. Then they gave me a promo to spend 9.99 for three more. You own them for life and you can always go back to them whether you continue your subscription with Audible or not.
