    This is one of these books written in a very philosophical way The way that opens your mind and you start to perceive things differently I never understood what it takes to be a superior man What’s the mindset I was always the “good guy” I understood that being the man is having the purpose important than the relationship It’s about the understanding of masculine and feminine energy and knowing how to deal with themThere are so many lessons from this book These are my top 3 takeaways at this moment of time Free yourself from the expectations and criticisms of your father Do it for love not for personal gain or pleasure Don't get lost in tasks and dutiesFrom this book I distilled 23 mindsets that the superior man should have and also I wrote a detailed book summary that you can read here

    the casual reader misunderstands deida and wrongly characterizes him as stereotyping genders this is not at all what he is doing listen deeper he writesteaches about masculine and feminine energy which is present to varying degrees in all men and women when he describes feminine energy he is not describing women and when he describes masculine energy he is not describing men this is an important distinction as he says even places have masculine and feminine energies eg hawaii has predominantly feminine energy while new york is very masculinethe feminine is everything that changes and flows the feminine is light and love the masculine is stillness nothingness the masculine observes each energy provides uniue gifts the masculine holds the space for the feminine like the riverbanks stillness hold the space for the river life to flow the feminine invites the masculine to lifethose who think him to be misogynistic are missing his point entirely the weather is feminine any good sailor knows this the sailor can only navigate the ocean well when he has great respect for the ocean and knows that if the ocean wants to crush him the ocean wins to really understand deida listen to him teach there are downloadable mp3's on his website i highly recommend 'the complete recordings' a 3 volume set he is at his most brilliant when he is working with people in his workshops his use of language is disarming in a good way he is incredibly articulate and his powerful presence can be felt right through the recordingsi have read many books and authors on the subject of spiritual sex and deida is by far the best margot anand is a far second in my opinion this book along with finding god through sex should be reuired reading for anyone who wants to deepen their spiritual life and understanding of relationship

    Ok I NEVER write reviews on goodreads or on or anywhere else but this time I just had to First let me say I completely understand why serious feminists get their panties in a bunch over this book the language is definitely not politically correct the constant use of your woman rubbed me the wrong way at first and he uses words like pussywhipped every once in a while It's also possible to interpret some of his statements as discouraging women to have a career life goals and a their own lives outside their romantic relationship because he calls a lot of these efforts masculine However I think Deida actually demonstrates an excellent understanding of women and the way their minds work It's also easy to dismiss this book as new age woo woo bullshit because of some of the language and Eastern philosophy that runs through it Please don't Read deeper to his meanings Ok so this book was written mostly for heterosexual men but practically everyone can benefit from reading it As a straight woman I was happy to learn A LOT about men the book explains so much about their priorities and the way they see the world but was even happier with Deida's explanations about the feminine mind Today women are living in a world where a lot of feminine ualities are not valued we're expected to be successful in some sort of business intelligent and achieving and strong I grew up in Montana and Colorado and can tell you that flighty feminine emotions are certainly not valued there And I've definitely bought into the theory that women should be successful achievers too I'm a 4th year medical student BUT this book has allowed me to understand all my feminine ualities that I've been suppressing and hiding my whole life Yep I have weird emotions and change my mind a lot and speak according to what I feel at that instant Yep I prioritize my relationship above all else allow my mood to be determined by my current perception of that relationship and then figure all other elements of my life will fall into place around that relationshipYep I actually want my man to have a strong life purpose and love me too Yep pretty much all of it Deida's got it right And I feel a lot better about my own craziness too and am glad to hear I'm not the only strong woman hiding in a mind that sometimes misses the old gender roles and holds my relationship at the center of my life In summary read it You'll learn something Even if you don't agree with every word it may change your life Really

    The core book in the teachings of David Deida The book that stopped me in my tracks over and over again They are very short chapters but each 2 3 page chapter would usually take me about a week to digest I read this for 2 years over and over again until I finally met David Deida Let me tell you something You can read this book for 10 years and I guarantee you will get a hell of a lot from it doing that but 3 days in a workshop with David was worth 2 years of reading his book At leastSo this review tells you how it affected me but not what it's about But the title says it all so you don't need an explanation of the contents what you need is to understand whether it's worth your time I can't imagine it NOT being worth your time I have given this book to countless men My children have all read it and given copies to their friends Women read it and then give a copy to their husband HOPING he reads it and GETS itLet's put it this way David GETS men and women And I didn't take anything he said on face value NOT A PIECE OF IT I tested it ALL And there are few times when his insights into the Masculine working the Feminine is wrong This is THE book for men Period But let me warn you I've given this to a lot of men who have loved it and their lives have changed dramatically but I've given it to a lot of men who have discarded it and return to the couch Its challenging But I love that about it

    Every now and then I read a book that makes me go where the hell has this book been my entire life In “The Way of the Superior Man” David Deida provided the best relationship advice I’ve read since Bertrand Russell’s’ “Marriage and Morals” or “Mating in Captivity” by Esther Perel the best advice on male sexuality since Mantak Chia’s “The Multi Orgasmic Man” and not since Viktor E Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning” has a book made me “check” myself and reevaluate my actions Although the title of this book had me thinking that it was one to advocate autocratic behavior or male domination David Deida’s appeal for the Superior Man is one that takes a stance against being a mediocre man; an appeal for responsibility and understanding in place of laziness and chaos Deida understands of the masculine and feminine essence and temperament is unparalleled in anything that I’ve ever read and I’d go as far as to say that “The Way of the Superior Man” is a book that every man should read at least once in their life timeIn this book David Deida is unapologetic in his approach on malefemale relations and after hearing his profound relationship advice I was left thinking “Doink That’s why I’ve been falling flat on my face all these years” “The Way of the Superior Man” is packed with sound advice but I must say that I’ve extracted the most value from the sections where he informed men to feed from feminine energy and for a lack of a better word “use” the women in their lives as a guide to determine whether or not you’re living life to the fullest of your capabilities I’m glad that I had the opportunity to read this gem which was recommended to me by a good friend – who surprisingly is a woman Thanks a lot Dayna 5 Stars

    I cannot believe the high ratings of this book It is terrible Simply terrible There are shards of stereotypical gendered roles in it for sure so I'm sure that will ring true enough to some people Am I a feminist in that I expect women and men to be treated eually yes I have never ever put down men as a group In fact I'm the one that usually ends up defending them I would say a truly strong person never needs to ballbust because they are secure enough in their own strengthcompetency not to have to put another gender down to feel powerful This is what Deida completely misses A feminine energy as Deida describes it can still be strong smart gentle independent loving and not try to decimate the masculine people of the worldWith the research I've done the biggest problem I run into is that people won't believe how destructive women can be and not just mentallyI tried to read this book with an open mind and at first I was doing ok but the deeper I got the worse it got and the I kept shaking my head There is no research behind this book But what can we sayhe's smart to have written a controversial book because let's face it controversy sells His division of what is feminine and masculine right up front is absurd Feminine and Masculine are not mutually exclusive and exhaustive in people If you want to get zen then both feminine and masculine energies exist in everything to be at a balance at least to some degree At the beginning of every chapter he gives a general truth that is and has been held in many cultures so at first it doesn't seem so off and admittedly I found myself being amused But then as he starts to explain his ideas thoroughly they fall apart uickly to anyone who has ever done or read research on pretty much anything related at all to men and women or heck even anyone who is able to think critically At first he makes it clear that he is talking about sexual essence but then later he extrapolates further to just feminine and masculine He also clearly thinks that the feminine energy is always the vulnerable and is always on the receiving end of wrong behaviour ie affairs And he never addressed that a person can be all the energies at different times and still be successful in and out of the bedroom You could generally be a hot feminine energy most of the time but that doesn't mean in the appropriate situation you can't be a cool one That is assuming you buy into his divisive mindset at all There is so much to a successful relationship than just having polarity in your sexual essences Would a very masculine male want to be in a relationship with a very feminine woman who would cheat steal be emotionally unstable? Doubtful but according to Deida a masculine energy can be strong enough to change this behaviour yeah nice try I think many people want to believe his opinion and so they accept what rings true and ignore all the other crap sorry to use that word but that's the cleaner version It is so easy to accept information that is already believed to be true and ignore the rest that doesn't fit with their way of thinking Near the end of the book he starts to discuss basically chakra work but he has just written the cliff note version at bestI would never recommend this book of less than pop psychology It goes against the hundreds of studies that are out thereso who is buying this book? Is it just people wanting to adhere to or return to the traditional gender roles of the 50s??

    If you feel drawn to this book read this book If you're curious about this book read this book If you strongly dislike charismatic people and are slightly jealous that one man can summon so much energy through his research to write a book that doesn't degrade women focuses on a man finding his passion discusses the natural polarity of relationships and cuts to the core of one's self definition of manhood then maybe this book would be your style The GameThis is a book for a man or a female in my case as I love men to reflect on their purpose point of presence and goals in life The structure of the book is of a meditative process than a linear textbook teaching Within the pages no annoying case studies of how Jenny and Jeff did what he suggested and became better people await you This book invites you to be masculine heart centered and awake in the world I have a deeper understanding of the type of man I want in my life and how to respect them and myself There are many authors out there that write on the message presented on the book Good for them Read this book

    I read this book after seeing it enthusiastically recommended by various sources online with some ringing endorsements from a few people I bought it in spite of knowing that it's big with the PUA community I was very excited to get the chance to read it but I must admit that I was extremely disappointed As others have pointed out Deida has no real professional credentials to fall back on and his official bio is vague From what I’ve gathered he has no PhD or PsyD or any other type of doctoral degree he dropped out of school before he earned it His undergraduate degree is in Theoretical Psycho biology and his masters is in Biology He claims to have taught courses and have done research at several colleges but doesn't mention that any of it relates to the subject matter of this book Mentions a lot about a background in yoga spirituality Buddhism and no surprise here creative writing He also isn't licensed as a therapist and makes the claim that everything that he has taught and written since 1989 is free of the influence of academic and spiritual institution He considers himself an entertainer much like the scam artists who masuerade as gurus in other fields His book comes across as little than the egotistical blovating of a narcissist who's out to bilk his followers for all the love and attention he can get by regurgitating uasi spiritual pablumDeida's prose is sometimes called poetic which is a nice way of saying that he's cheesy vague and likes to spout trite New Age cliches as if they were ancient wisdom This was an immediate turnoff as I began reading What do phrases like give your gift mean exactly? I still don't know even after seeing this phrase repeated several hundred times There are than a few statements which follow this formula IF you don't do this or IF you are thisTHEN you are a weak man I found these judgmental statements goading towards believing the author's assertions and basing a man's relative weakness or strength on a single limited dimension rather than letting the reader decide the validity of the author's statements The language used is a bit dramatic I cannot count how many times I have read the word penetrate There are certainly some worthy passages about being congruent with yourself so that your woman trusts you such as how it's important for a man to pay attention to a woman's emotions and not try to fix her problems how women want a man who's steadfast and has a direction and goal in life and how many women prefer a guy who takes the lead in a relationship and handles the traditional male gender roles And I liked the idea that in any intimate relationship we can grow in leaps and bounds but I think this also ignores the extremely desirable effects of biochemistry which predispose humans to being in intimate relationships Again the book is too simplistic and too one dimensional in its perspective And the most common solution to any problem a man may have with a woman in their relationship that one reads page after page is that you should suddenly create new energy in the moment give your woman your full consciousness and embrace her with love You should be living in full consciousness regardless of your woman However this book is not worth sifting through the author's bloated shallow cliche ridden New Age onanism to find

    Wow So this is a very controversial book It was introduced to me by a friend of mine just going through a divorce and feeling like he'd suppressed his masculine side for 20 years of which I actually witnessed the final few years It wasn't that he was emasculated by his wife so much as he was willing to bury a part of him resulting in him not exploring his full potential and living a life true to his nature He was living this book like a paint by numbers guidebook BUT it was working for him I hadn't read it but my superficial take was that it was a little too well tidy Too placebic that a word? should be ; So I actually circulated it to several strong women I know You know a sort of acid test to those women who I felt would be most sensitive to a message of be a better man by embracing the masculine Their first superficial reaction was as expected umbrage and even outrage But then slowly as they digested it and the message percolated they kinda universally and separately I might add liked the idea of a man being a man That is a masculine man being a masculine man and learning how to treat a woman as a feminine entity I was kinda shocked So I read it While no book can be a panacea for anything there are some good lessons for us confused post women's lib men who sometimes get confused about when to open a door for a women and when to ensure they get eual pay Badly kept secret they want both

    Typical new age bunk Takes a truth from the Bible gender roles and harps on it like there was no other point to life there is Obsessed with sex What a waste of paper No real inventive thought here at all
