Every man comes to a crossroads at some point in his life.
He can keep his head down and live a life marked by stagnation, fear, indecision, loneliness, and self-doubt, or he can break free from the crowd and live a life marked by growth, abundance, courage, success, and happiness.This audiobook is about how author David De Las Morenas traded the former kind of life for the latter. Inside you'll find the 30 rules he followed to quit a boring 9-5, get his dream job, attract more women, publish two books, build a superior body, and love himself.

I found this book thoroughly unimpressive, perhaps because I've already read a fair amount on masculinity. For me this didn't really hold any new information. The work of Elliot Hulse, who's referenced in a chapter, offers a lot of the same information for free on YouTube. Or if you like reading the King, Warrior, Magician, Lover books by Robert L. Moore and Douglas Gillette are a personal favourite and offer a lot more detail on the ideas.
I downloaded this audiobook to start understanding 'the alpha'. What I got was that every individual is striving for something, has fears and insecurities. It's the way you deal with them - meeting them head on with honesty, hard work and dedication that drives you forward as an individual.
"Total Waste of Time"
This guy was tall enough and athletic enough to dominate at basketball. His family was rich enough to "summer in Madrid" every year. And he was smart enough to graduate college and work in I.T.
Somehow he managed to overcome all of these obstacles and become a confident male :|
And he will teach you how to be a confident alpha male also:
- work out and get buff;
- read lots of books;
- learn martial arts so you can kick butt.
....now you know.
"Other Reviews on the Book are Suspicious. Return!"
I decided to give this audible book a chance based upon the rave reviews.
I got to the point where the author suggest the reader follow the same exercise plan he did and suggests to learn the technique from YouTube. I had to stop at this point. This is NOT good, sound advice. Everybody has different exercise needs. Work with a trainer to get proper advice for your body type and learn proper technique, especially if you haven't ever worked out at a gym. Do not blindly follow what worked for somebody else and expect great results.
So, I went back to the reviews that persuaded me to buy this book...
At the time of this writing, there are twelve reviews. There are four reviewers that have more than 25 books in their library--Three reviews have been members since 2001, but have 25 or less books purchased in the 14 years!!! That's hard to believe. Only three reviewers have written more than three reviews. These might be credible.
I do not think this is a helpful book for people wanting self improvement. I would recommend not deciding on buying this book based on the reviews here. There is something that doesn't seem right here. I would pass and find another book that has more credible reviews.
"Juvenile, derived, immature "advice""
A stereotypical, adolescent male approach to life with not much more than contrived anecdotes and a list of other resources of similar quality. I have no doubt the author thinks their insights are profound, but this is the mark of a young life.
"David "Slays Women"."
The title doesn't say anything about hooking up with women. That is clearly his main bit. Could be helpful for a young "bro".
He is clearly a professional book writer that cobbles some junk together and sells it cheaply on Amazon/Audible.
"Amazing book been through itTwice already"
Very very good book and really opened my eyes to a lot of things
The simple ways of talking to people on this audio book were very profound and I love the guys attitude
Very great narration as well
About to listen to it again !!!!
If you enjoy books with lots of swearing and men talking about their balls, then this book is for you. Otherwise, skip it. The same advice can be found in plenty of other well written books.
Overall this was a great book. I really enjoyed the narration as well.
The 30 steps hits the largest areas I found missing in my life. Albeit not all I will be working on the insight has identified new ways and ideas that one can use to develop a stronger you.
"Insightful & Relatable"
I enjoyed this book. I listen to the audible format every day at work. Thank you for sharing you're knowledge and experience.
"Mediocre at best."
I didn't think the book was really at all about Alpha. More along the lines of just a busy self-help book. I would not recommend it.
"Real advise, achievable goals, strait up."
Great advise with achievable goals for the contemporary man. Language that can be understood easy. Narrated with ease and strait forward.
