Self-Education of a Patriarch

(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.

War

The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, ~500 B.C. China

On War, by Carl von Clausewitz, 1832 Prussia

Mastery

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).

    I think you’ll find the Art of War was written well before 1913.
