Review

Advance Praise for The Way of Men:
"Jack Donovan has written a thought-provoking treatise on the essential struggle of men, taking on timeless concepts, in an honest examination of what manhood means to him. The book is carefully reasoned with his own impressive, self-made intellect. He's done his research, and pondered deep, and while I didn't always agree with everything he said--I am a better man for reading it." 
- Sam Sheridan, A Fighter's Heart, A Fighter's Mind

"A thought provoking read on what it means to be a man today in a world that's increasingly finding masculinity undesirable and un-needed. Donovan makes bold and unapologetic arguments on what The Way of Men needs to be in the future."
- Brett McKay, The Art of Manliness, Manvotionals

 "In an age where traditional masculinity is disparaged, deconstructed, feared and scorned, Jack Donovan has engaged in the necessary task of reconstructing what masculinity is, and how it fits into modern society. It seems unlikely that one could learn manhood from a book, but this would be a good place to try."
- Scott Locklin; Writer, Taki's Magazine

"Absolutely love this book!  I found Jack's comments on the underlying primal instincts that motivate men and what can generate unity within a group to be both thought provoking and spot on from a leadership perspective."
- Chris Duffin, AAPF and APA record-holding competitive powerlifter, coach, and gym owner.

"Peering behind the layers of civility we indulge in as a matter of pretense, Donovan explores the primal relationship between tribal identity and masculinity, and emerges endorsing a type of Nietzschean struggle for significance through conflict"
- Brett Stevens, Amerika.org

Men, especially young men (before it's too late): find or rediscover yourselves here. This isn't a vapid, chest-thumping defense of misogyny or other stupid and useless male excesses. Donovan's treatise on the nature of men is a well-reasoned, historically valid argumentation of man and manhood as definable, socio-biological facts, and not the changeable "social constructs" described (or desired) by feminism and other post-structuralist thought. Men and manhood exist, and increasingly exist at odds with and within systems that want to control, change or even dispose of them. Moreover, men and manhood - properly defined - have both a right and a reason to exist. Donovan expounds on and justifies these rationales brilliantly. For Generation Xers in particular, "The Way of Men" is the how-to manual our fathers wish they'd been allowed to give us as we were entering manhood. In fact, I suspect more than a few single mothers would impart this knowledge to their fatherless sons as they discover firsthand the real nature of men in the pubescent behavior of their rudderless, confused boys.

Why call such a necessary book dangerous? Because it is. It subverts everything men are taught about their attributes, worth and roles in the modern world, and defies the modern world's expectation that men will simply shut up and submit to a mechanical, inhuman order antithetical to their own nature and history. If you want to become a better man, read this. If you want a better understanding of men, read this. And by every means make sure the next generation of men reads this.

If you are fan of Mr. Donovan's other works, I think you will not be surprised by his latest work, The Way of Men. It's utterly straightforward and honest, full of historical anecdotes, and uncompromising in it's vision. Jack really does understand the state of men and he relays the information pretty well. His core beliefs, however, are very Left Handed ,if you know what I mean and as such, his writing only for really intrepid readers. Jack's dangerous ideas often bring to my mind Nietzsche, Simon LeVay and Ayn Rand for, to read this book properly, you must accept, if only temporarily, that "Might is Right." I do wish he had not used quite so many words- even for a short book, it drags bottom in places- but the author does not aim to entertain. For the fictional, entertaining version of this book, try the perennial favorite, Fight Club, because the two works really describe the same scenario: the crisis of modern manhood. Men are getting softer, fatter, lazier, more feminine, more dependent on a government that we do not trust and which does not values us, dependent on others for food, water and safety. Gender roles in the author's hometown of Portland are decidedly unhip, quaint even. Women compete in the work place, earning as much and more as their male counterparts. Physical, dangerous jobs are going away. We all sit behind desks for a paycheck. Hell, even the military, the manliest joint around, is blowing up Afghan's via robot drones! What a tough sell- masculinity is perceived to be rooted in violence, aggression, chauvinism, and war: characteristics many, including yours truly, believe dangerous and even deeply unevolved. Modern men are left unfulfilled without an outlet for all that testosterone, for good or for bad.Read more ›

If you're not familiar with the so-called "menosphere" and you never heard of Jack Donovan, I warn you: he's is not a gamer. Maybe we could call him a baller. Or a playmaker. And, for sure, a shot caller. Few writers have the ability to write a book that any man would like to pick up and read right away. Mr. Donovan is one of those. He can be direct and profound, right to the point and comprehensive, lean and stylish. As you navigate through the chapters, you feel as if you knew the author from your local pub, like an old buddy from college talking directly to you. A great joy. With beers, if possible.

In your gut, you know that women are remaking the world in their own image and you know that you don't wanna live in a world like that, but maybe you lack the argumentative tools to draw a precise picture of the situation inside your own head. Sure, you wanna know what is masculinity today. But, more importantly, what has been masculinity for thousands of years? What makes a man good in being a man, that is what "The Way of Men" is all about. When you hear that masculinity it is being completely redefined, maybe you should consider that this definition lies in the past, on our genes, on our history as human beings.

Highly quotable, this book will give you lots of accessible concepts and, without even noticing, you'll repeat on you daily life that "The way of men is the way of the gang", or "Masculinity is about what men want from each other", or "Strength, Courage, Mastery, and Honor are the alpha virtues of men all over the world". And I think that is exactly the purpose of the author: you'll see the world differently and, most important, you'll see yourself differently. If you have a Y chromosome and never thought about those subjects, buy the book and start it right away. You sure don't want to be a slave, do you?
