THIS SOUNDS LIKE A COMEDY BUT IT IS NOT.

I bought this book after listening to the sample thinking it was a parody of the pick up artists mentality but it is not. It takes itself very seriously.

A philosophy book that starts off with the notion that we are alive to feel pleasure shows you just how misguided this philosophy is.

Good narration though.

This is not the voice of an Alpha Male

What disappointed you about The Alpha Male Guide?

I

What didn’t you like about Alec Sand’s performance?

The voice of the narrator was so bothering. It was like a rollercoaster. At the beginning of a sentence you barely hear anything and at the end the voice almost destroys your ear-drum. Was he trying to emulate the voice of an alpha male? If so, it is a big fail! This is not the voice of an alpha male but of a bully. James Bond has the voice of an alpha male: clear, calm and confident voice.

Any additional comments?

If the contents would have been great, I could forgive the voice, but it was not. Most of the advices in this book are very superficial and will not lead you to a better life

Fun listen, not entirely sure it isn't satire.

I personally liked the narrator. He wasn't too over the top in trying to sound macho, which isn't what being an Alpha is even about. Some of the advice given is a little, "obvious," but there are some gems. For me, the book itself is more about doing rather than posturing. If you're the kind of guy who's Facebook persona is entirely about pictures of your car, fishing, hunting, swilling beer, and attending sporting events you're probably not going to like this.

Not What I was Expecting, but Entertaining

I love the narrator, I thought he was witty and funny in his performance.

The advice was nothing new; I was expecting some old timey wisdom from the age of those philosophers, which is probably what it was, but I was expecting it to be more aged, I guess.

Performance was great.
