(This post is part of the ‘Guide to the Young Patriarch.’ The current draft of the Guide can be found here.)
The accumulation of knowledge and building of a solid inner-base for a patriarch is a consuming task of the utmost importance. Here I suggest texts, old texts when possible, as a tool to the self-education and building of the constitution of a patriarch. I read and benefited from every book suggested here.
The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, ~500 B.C. China
On War, by Carl von Clausewitz, 1832 Prussia
The Book of Five Rings, by Miyamoto Musashi, 1645 Japan.
The Old Man and the Sea, by Ernest Hemingway, 1952 Cuba
Theory of Game
Attraction isn’t a choice, by David DeAngelo 2004 USA
The Selfish Gene, by Richard Dawkins, 1976 USA.
Application of Game
Bang: More Lays In 60 Days, by Roosh V 2007 USA.
The Married Man Sex Life Primer, by Athol Kay 2011 USA.
This list will be extended in the future (GBFM/Free Northerner style). I will be happy to accept suggestions for other relevant books from blog readers. Specifically books that facilitate learning and self-growth (not necessarily the most entertaining books).
