The Ultimate Guide to Being a ManPosted: October 8, 2013 | |
the sphere is not short on writer’s and their books. i’ve read a few and have nothing bad to say about any of them. well, i was sorting through books to take to vegas to read if we’re ever lounging outside and i stumbled upon a book i realized i should have posted about LOOOOOOOONG ago.
i was home in NO and stopped in my local used book shop where they have a decent antique books section. in case you haven’t been keeping score, i LOVE antique books. i collect them. well, i ran across a book titled, “The Intellectual Life”, by Phillip G. Hamerton: dated 1877, first edition, published in boston. Cost me $12.
i can’t read it though. if it’s not treated gingerly, the pages may come off the binding. but what little I could read piqued my interest.
on a hunch, i looked it up in amazon and i found a paperback copy. once i got it, i nosed through it and was amazed at how thorough it is at dealing with every aspect of a man’s life and how to maximize your potential. this book isn’t just about being a ladies man, or being able to get laid, demonizing feminism, or impressing anyone of your peers or co-workers.
it’s about being the best YOU you can be and maximizing your potential to have a satisfying life.
and yes, he does cover women. but he also talks about: education, etiquette, humility, politics, etc. i can’t stress how good this book is. i haven’t read it cover to cover, but the sections that I read and were interested in were fascinating.
if any of you cop this and want to do a review, let me know and i’ll post it. just head over to any of the blogs that are amazon associates (notably Cappy Cap and VLM ) and get your copy. it’s $8.99 paperback and the kindle version is………FREE.
do yourself a favor and check it out. you really have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain.
tomorrow, i head to Vegas. miss me. some mood music for those of you that won’t be there. world domination, we’ll be riding the apocalypse and having a BLAST.
i’m back in NO now and headed straight to the city. dropped into Tropical Isle and my boy Tim was working. I mentioned Tim in my post “guide to NO”.
