If there is one audiobook available that allows men and women to fully understand why deceitful, duplicitous, and highly manipulative members of the opposite sex cheat and commit adultery regularly, then this is it.
For male listeners, author and professional dating coach Alan Roger Currie goes into detail explaining the difference in the appeal of an Alpha male versus a Beta male in the eyes of women and how each type of man satisfies different needs for women.
For female listeners, Currie explains the psychological effects of Dr. Sigmund Freud's Madonna / Whore Complex, which explains why many men view some women as being appealing as a casual sex lover only while categorizing other women as 'good girls' who they would have no problem entering into a long-term romantic relationship with or possibly proposing marriage to.
Part One of the audiobook offers a brief history of why marriage became popular in the 18th century and how later the Victorian Era encouraged women to present themselves to men as sexually pure and ideal candidates for marriage. In Part Two, Currie describes the difference between those men and women who are appealing only for casual sex versus those who are more appealing for long-term relationships and marriage. And finally, in Part Three, Currie offers detailed descriptions of the 'harsh realities' and challenges facing men and women today and what the outlook is for the future of dating and monogamous marriages.
If you want an audiobook that feeds into "romantic fairy tales" and highly invalid dating advice, then this is not the audiobook for you.
On the other hand, if you want an audiobook that is full of blunt, real-world dating advice that will help both men and women fully understand the psychology and motivations of the opposite sex, then purchase The Beta Male Revolution audiobook immediately and be enlightened.

The main thing I got from this book is that you don't have to subscribe to the normal, straight, boring, vanilla life-script of: college, career, marriage, children. As women gain more rights, they are also gaining more power, which I've only ever seen as a good thing. Black people have gained rights too. As an ex-Knight (in shining armour) type, I was always at the defence of women, happy to advocate feminist views. I was the proverbial Captain Save a Howe, rescuing women from patriarchal alpha males that had no respect for women. However, I was very naive in my beliefs about women and Alan Roger Currie (ARC) in this book sets the record straight and brings home some hard truths which unfortunately I had to learn the hard way... through bitter-sweet experience. ARC predicts that there will be more and more men like us, waking up from the delusion that being a family orientated and faithful provider, being a loyal monogamous and dutiful husband, putting his wife and children first and being the best man you could possibly be, will end up in generous lavishing of gratitude and appreciation from our partners and spouses. Not so. I believed I was being good man, but I realise now that this was in many ways perceived as weak. Nice guys finish last while the strong confident no BS types of guys referred to as Alpha Males are the ones that are desired to fulfil most women's physical needs and fantasies. Thus the Beta Male Revolution is born. Men that have played by the rules of society, attempting to be great men in their families and communities, aiming to do right by their women and uphold the moral fabric of modern civilisation are in for a rude awakening. The author warns that many beta males are angry, but this can be directed in a good way. Alpha Males are happy with the way things are as they will always be desired and in high demand by women. Personally, I realised that whenever I'm in the Caribbean I feel alpha, I'm perceived as alpha and I live an envious lifestyle that the first-world beta version of me can only dream of when I touch-down back home. By transitioning to alpha males in our own societies and communities, many beta-trait males no longer have to be angry, bitter, confused and frustrated. With the support, mentoring and coaching of alpha male leaders such as Alan Roger Currie, all males with a strong desire for self-improvement and mastery can transition, graduate and upgrade to the type of authentic alpha males that satisfy women's psychological and physical desires as well as, importantly, their own.
Without a doubt, yes! This book has helped me so much, and I'd definitely listen to it again. There's so much information in here that you'll take more in every time you listen to it.
Honestly, it's incomparable to any other book. It's basically an entire genre of its own and it's like nothing I've ever listened to or read before. The only way to fully understand how much this book stands out is to buy it for yourself!
Alan Roger Currie's narration is enticing and keeps you wanting to listen to more, his voice is brilliant to listen to and makes it a lot harder to "put the book down" - He's engaging, interesting, and most importantly, makes the book a joy to listen to.
I feel like there were some particularly moving segments on the psychology behind why people do what they do, and these were enlightening moments which also left me somewhat in shock of some people!
I fully recommend this audiobook for anyone looking for an insight into how the human brain works and how we perceive other people - It was absolutely fascinating to listen to and I honestly can't say I've heard anything like this before!
Infidelity is flourishing in modern relationships and the forbidden fruit tempts us more and more. Singles can hardly be bothered to find a steady partner and if they do, that person is most often a temporary accessory until something new and better comes along, or the thrill of being in love has passed. The traditional ideals of love such as fidelity, coupledom and loyalty are often dashed against the rocks of brutal reality - with lies, deceit, lack of validation and infidelity.
This is a saucy and provocative audio book to kindle debate on infidelity, jealously, the chemistry of love, dominating women, men's desire for possession and much more!
These questions and many, many more are ones that you will find the answers to in the provoking and critical debate book "The Beta Male Revolution: Why Many Men Have Totally Lost Interest in Marriage in Today's Society" which is about sex, power and female infidelity and much more.
I highly no doubt recommending this book to modern age group of people, you will certainly gain knowledge.
"Read this! Me = alpha male with beta male traits. "
I have been a follower of Alan's for at least 6 years. I knew I was not quite a Total Alpha Male. I don't feel comfortable with people at first. I know that part about myself.
But I still think this book should be read by everyone. Simple advice but palatable for everyone. It makes sense how he describes the general trend of interactions between men and women. It's changing. I see it myself. Alan just puts it more simply and succintly.
Even though I have followed Alan a long time, I noticed a few gold nuggets in this as well. Him narrating this just puts brings the points home harder.
"No More Obligatory Monogamy = The End of Cheating?"
This is Alan Roger Currie’s most comprehensive audiobook yet. I would recommend that if the gals listen to just one audiobook of Alan’s, this should be the one they listen to. For the guys, I think this should be the first or second audiobook that they listen to. I happen to be one of Alan’s few female listeners who has listened to and reviewed each of his four audiobooks, and this one doesn’t disappoint. This audiobook will make listeners better understand why Alan wrote his other books, Mode One, The Possibility of Sex, and Oooooh … Say it again.
In this audiobook, Alan expresses that he believes marriage simply does not have the same appeal for men that it did prior to 1960. If not worldwide, at least in the United States. Alan believes there are just way too many dishonest and adulterous men in the world, and even many more dishonest, manipulative, and adulterous women in the world. Alan doesn’t so much blame men or women, but rather he places the blame squarely on the flawed concept of obligatory monogamy and marriage itself. Alan believes that natural, organic, completely voluntary monogamy works out better for couples than forced or obligatory monogamy.
Also, Alan bluntly dispels the myth that all gals are only looking to connect with polite gentlemen, and go out of their way to avoid interactions with the bad boys and womanizing cads. Alan refers to the polite gentlemen as ‘beta males’ and the womanizing cads as ‘alpha males.’ I can say as a woman that most women don’t want a bad boy as a husband or steady partner, but for a casual shagging here and there, many of us women love the aggressive, masculine, and extremely dominant and kinky nature of the bad boy types.
I feel that the gals who listen to this audiobook are going to be left with mixed feelings, particularly if they aspire to be married someday. Some gals will learn new things from this audiobook about the overall mentality of men and their myriad of egotistical insecurities, while other ladies will criticize some of Alan’s strong opinions about women’s manipulative and materialistic behavior and his seemingly strong disdain for marriage, monogamy, and platonic friendships between men and women. I think all of the guys who listen to this audiobook will gain a better understanding about how some women operate and play games with men. Personally, I think this is Alan’s best audiobook for both the guys and the gals to listen to and learn from.
The honesty and insight in this book is very refreshing. It's well thought out well organized and keeps you interested throughout, without compromising the message.
Allen has become the modern day historian for the man and woman relationship. keep up the truth and the good works.
"Thee Best Audiobook for Fully Understanding Women!"
If you have yet to listen to any of Alan Roger Currie’s first three audiobooks, make sure you put this one first on your list. Even if you have already listened to his three previous audiobooks, this new one is still worth a listen. This latest audiobook is like a companion piece to his three previous audiobooks.
‘Mode One,’ Alan’s first audiobook, explains to men why verbally communicating with women in a straight-to-the-point and direct way is far better than verbal communication with women that is indirect, vague, ambiguous, or blatantly dishonest and misleading. This audiobook also introduces Alan’s male listeners to the four categories women that all men will encounter, in terms of their verbal communication style: reciprocators, rejecters, wholesome pretenders, and manipulative timewasters. For this audiobook, Alan also has pre-printed journal notes that you can purchase separately.
‘The Possibility of Sex,’ Alan’s second audiobook, explains to men why verbally communicating with women in an indirect way or subjecting yourself to ‘funclubbing’ with women (Alan’s unique term for a man pretending to be interested in remaining just friends with a woman when he knows he wants more) sets a man up to be misled, manipulated, and toyed with by women on a consistent basis. This audiobook concentrates on the category of women that Alan refers to as ‘manipulative timewasters,’ which are women who pretend to be interested in having sex with a man, but really, these women just want to use men for their platonic friendship and occasional monetary favors.
‘Oooooh … Say It Again,’ Alan’s third audiobook, teaches men how to make their voice smoother sounding, and more persuasive and seductive, and also how to read explicit erotic novels written by heterosexual and bisexual women to learn how to develop a talent for talking dirty to women and tap into their already existing sexual fantasies that they keep hidden in their heads. Alan makes listeners believe that they can get women sexually aroused in their very first conversation with a woman if they become really good at talking dirty to women by whispering in the woman’s left ear. This audiobook concentrates on the category of women that Alan refers to as ‘wholesome pretenders,’ which are women who pretend to be monogamy minded prudes in public, but privately, they are really very kinky, sexually adventurous and experimental, and even promiscuous.
‘The Beta Male Revolution,’ this audiobook, gives male and female listeners a brief, but very intelligently explained history of dating and relationships between men and women in the USA, and it explains how two decades (the 1960s and 1970s) pretty much changed everything between men and women forever. Basically, Alan says that US society (and probably even other countries too) has not really recovered from what happened between men and women in those two decades, and that those two decades ultimately caused women to view men in four categories: men who are good for satisfying sex, and not much more than that (total alpha males), men who are good for both sex and long-term companionship (alpha males with beta traits), men who desperately want to help a woman raise children in a family unit and are willing to take care of a woman’s financial needs and obligations (beta males with alpha traits), and men who women either ignore completely or only contact to be flattered or to have those men provide them with emotional support and listen to them whine about their problems with alpha males (total beta males).
I won’t give away much more than that. You have to listen to it for yourself. Women, I would assume, will learn a few things about how men work too, but this is a goldmine of information for men in terms of helping them fully understand what makes women tick. I guarantee you that after listening to this audiobook, you will understand just about everything there is to understand about why women do the things they do and why they act differently toward different types of men!! This is a must-listen for all men!
Drones on and on with the island story that lost me in the first hour.
This book is dead on point and a must read for men that will benefit from the red pill knowledge it bestows
"Not as captivating as reviews lead me to believe"
Fascinating topic, I had to listen to the book at two times the speed or it wouldn't have held my attention, I liked the narrators voice but it sounded more like a college lecture than an interesting book. Felt like it was being read in a monotone, voice resulting in me not being totally convince with points.
"A good listen, but too many broad generalisations"
This is my second review of an Alan Roger Currie audiobook. I first learned about Currie's distinction between Alpha males and Beta males from listening to his audiobook titled "Oooooh ... Say it Again." One thing I love about Currie’s audiobooks is his very engaging, and often times, hypnotic voice. Listeners will surely love listening to him enunciate his words and express his beliefs and opinions.
In both of Currie's audiobooks that I have listened to, Currie refers to men who are polite nice guys and classy gentlemen as 'Beta males,' and he refers to the egotistical and cocky jerk types (who are allegedly great at seducing women into their bed) as 'Alpha males.'
Those debatable and opinionated distinctions and labels aside, Currie does do a good job of asking his listeners rhetorical questions and offering somewhat valid opinions regarding both men and women's behaviour in today’s dating scene that provide you with food for thought well after you have finished listening to the audiobook.
This new audiobook by Currie makes the argument that women love to spend time with three (or really four) types of men for different benefits:
- ‘Total Alpha males’ for good, satisfying sex only
- ‘Total Beta males’ for emotional empathy and support, and platonic friendship only
- Men who are either 2/3 Alpha and 1/3 Beta (what Currie labels ‘Alpha males with Beta traits’) or 2/3 Beta and 1/3 Alpha (‘Beta males with Alpha traits’) who are the ideal type of men that women want to date long-term, or marry and raise children with.
The passage I had the hardest time digesting was when Currie suggested that all single heterosexual men are guilty of ‘FunClubbing,’ which means that men ‘pretend’ to be interested in being a woman’s platonic friend, but deep-down, they are really scheming and strategising to get into that woman’s pants. I don’t believe this for a minute! I have a great number of male platonic friends in my life that have never once made an attempt to have sex with me. I believe women have far more to offer men than just physical intimacy and sex.
I also do not believe that only Alpha males are good in bed, and that Beta males are always horrible in bed. I think polite nice guys could make great lovers for a woman, and that the cocky jerks could be totally disappointing a woman in bed because of their self-absorbed attitudes and lack of commitment to pleasing their female bed partners.
Overall, I think this new audiobook is a highly entertaining and enlightening listen for both men and women alike. Alan Roger Currie is a top notch self-help provocateur, to say the least. Alan and his seductive voice will have his listeners ‘marinating’ on a lot of what he had to say about the current state of dating and relationships between today’s single men and women.
I haven't read the print version. I've grown to like audiobooks.
ARC -- he narrates well.
ARC narrated the audiobook. It is a work of non-fiction.
I wouldn't give the audiobook a new title.
