The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine


Building on the core works of The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine presents a poignant outline of the phases of maturity and the most commonly predictable experiences men can expect from women as they progress through various stages of life.

Rational and pragmatic, the book explores the intergender and social dynamics of each stage of women’s maturity and provides a practical understanding for men in dealing with women in those phases.

Preventive Medicine also provides revealing outlines of feminine social primacy, Hypergamy, the ‘Hierarchies of Love’ and the importance of understanding the conventional nature of complementary masculinity in a world designed to keep men ignorant of it.

The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine seeks to help men who “wish they knew then what they know now.”

The book is first in of series complements to The Rational Male, the twelve-year core writing of author/blogger Rollo Tomassi from Rollo Tomassi is one of the leading voices in the globally growing, male-focused online consortium known as the “Manosphere”.

Well, it’s been about a year in the making, but the print version of my second book is now available on the Createspace store and will be distributed through Amazon in the next 3-5 business days. If you prefer the digital format the Kindle version is also available now on Amazon.

I’ll be updating this to a permanent page once the print version of the book is live on Amazon.

I’d like to thank all my regular readers and commenters. It was your input and insight, and the questions we put to each other that made this book possible. I’m often asked why I’ve never moderated the comments on Rational Male, this book is why. I’d also like to personally thank Sam Botta for doing the forward and helping with promotion of my work.

I’ll be doing an ‘Ask Me Anything’ of sorts in this week’s comment thread if you have questions about the book. My purpose with this book is to formalize the work I did in the Preventive Medicine series as well as provide some support material. If you’re a regular reader here, you already know I make my material freely available, however, I have fleshed out a lot of the original content more thoroughly as well as adding some new material in the book.

Preventive Medicine is intended to be a complement to The Rational Male core works – an important supplement, not an extension. I’ve decided that future Rational Male series books will center on that core work for reference to more specific topics. I think you’ll find the organization and direction of Preventive Medicine much more singularly focused than the first book. This is intentional. There was no feasible way to present the first book’s material without familiarizing readers with a lot of varied Red Pill topics. The Rational Male will always be the starting point for any new work.

Once again, my hope is that readers will share this book with the men they feel would need it the most. I hope you’ll “accidentally” leave a copy on a table at Starbucks or a school library. I hope you give it to your teenage nephew and your middle-age best friend going through a rough divorce. If you buy the digital copy, thank you, but do consider getting the physical copy to share with someone who wouldn’t otherwise consider exploring the Red Pill or the manosphere online. And if you get into a conversation about the book be sure you let them know about the first book too. Please spread the word.

I thank you all most sincerely.

  1. Cannot wait to buy and read. Your work has let me change my entire life and I thank you for that very sincerely.

  2. Congrats Rollo. Thank you for your good work. IbBought and shared several copies of The Rational Male for myself, brother and friends. I’ll definitely do the same here. Note: I viewed the Amazon “Look Inside” and the contents page shows Medicine misspelled “Preventive Medecine” four times. Best regards, Andrew

  3. I got the first book, but it had major formatting errors in the print version. Have these been fixed? I love your posts, but I’m reluctant to get another print book if it’s god the same issue.

  4. When will you publish a Rev. 2 of Rational Male?
    I’ll get them both together. Have a rather long queue for the meantime.

  5. First time signing in, and did so just to send a heartfelt congrats…I will most certainly be purchasing this bad boy!

  6. So far I bought 6 copies of The Rational Male for various friends and family last Christmas, and am pleased I now have the Birthday gifts as well. Charging Kindle and buying my first copy of Preventative Medicine tonight.

  7. Just checking, is this kind of a boiled down condensed version of your blog posts? Same with the first book. I want to buy both, need to know what Im getting into. Thanks Rollo

    1. @BigAl actually they are the more fleshed out and expanded versions. The first book is my collected core works and consists primarily of what I feel are the most important Red Pill principles to understand. This new one is based on the Preventative Medicine series I did last year, but expanded to account for outliers and social conventions.

      It’s split into two books. Book 1 is the preventive medicine time line, a comprehensive breakdown of the biological and sociological impact of Hypergamy, love hierarchies, and a new section explaining men’s conditioning by the FI.

      Book 2 is the support works. these are (mostly) expanded essays from the blog that I felt had the most relation to the what I put forth in Book 1. Most pertain to men coming to terms with being a Man in the SMP today.

  8. I’m looking forward to buying the hard copy. Rollo I am still very interested in a personal consult. I live in the orlando area. Would this be possible?


  9. Gave my buddy the Rational Male the other day. It’s important to have these books. Pointing a guy to the internet for this kind of information can be kind of overwhelming I imagine. Resources abound of course, but to have a book is absolute gold and I’m sure this one won’t disappoint.

  10. Next-to-the-last paragraph of the introduction … “They are not cannon, they are not law.” Cannon should be “canon”.

    Nice book btw.

  11. The paperback is listed on Amazon as volume 2. Is volume 1 not posted online for sale yet?

  12. Ok book 1 has the preventive med timeline. Thanks for clearing it up. Second volume of Rational Male. Got it haha

  13. Excellent, congratulations Rollo!

    I’m pretty bogged down at the moment but I’ll be reading this a soon as this crazy world permits.

  14. Hi Rollo,
    Firstly thanks for your fantastic work on TRM. I have benefited greatly from reading your blog but at 47 years old I wish I had found it sooner.
    Anyway I want to buy these books for my son (lives with my ex) but feel he is still too young at 13, do you have any thoughts on the best age for a young man to be introduced to these works?

  15. @Stefan

    You posted your actual phone number on a public forum? You do realize how dumb that is, right?

  16. Did you ever see the very strange review of Book 1 that seems to be given a lot of credence on Amazon UK?
    By ‘Paul Woodfine’. Either he’s as thick as two of my finest twice-wrought planks, or is deliberately refuting the very core of your views.
    How can a man read that book, and somehow get it so wrong?

    Here ya go (disguised GoogleMess, click to find the lady)

  17. Rollo: awesome. Will buy.

    From a few threads back, for those who can’t read or do math: 3 + 6 = 9.

  18. Oh and BTW, it’s up on Amazon@Planet Blighty, seven and three quarters of your finest English pounds, ta.
    When you realise that this is about 75% of the cost of a pack of Marlboro here, or equals a couple of pints of basic pub beer, or less than a gallon of gas, even I’ll be cracking the old sporran open for a number of copies. I’m In!

  19. @Sun….about Stefan putting up his phone #: It’s his.

    Yeah, I agree it’s a dumb move (but that’s not what this comment is about). The urge to correct others is in some way 180 degrees away from a place of bemused mastery. Let him fuck up. Phone #s are easy to change.

    We all want to help our brothers but at the same time we need to be aware of how our help can easily conform to the FI / ‘helicopter parent’ model. There’s no personal growth nor enlarged accountability there.

    I’m a reluctant critic since I find your comments to be among the most helpful on this site. Obviously this comment is far more brief that it could be. I’m sure you have the background knowledge to fill in the argument for yourself.

    Trash it or not, as you wish.

    Best wishes to you, funoldguy

  20. I’m 2/3rds the way through your first book The Rational Male now and am really liking it – at least half of it is highlighted for future review and I used some it recently [dread game in response to shit test] and got my way… at least for now anyway. Great work Rollo. I’ll be getting a copy of Preventative Medicine soon.

  21. Congrats! The whole approach of the blog is refreshing and hard-hitting. I’m looking forward to the “Ask Me Anything?” blog segment. My question is one that has been bothering me for some time and one you touch on periodically but hopefully can elaborate on: “How do you “next”, overcome the pitfalls of hypergamy and basically ‘not give a fuck’ when in reality you should be focused and in fact giving a fuck to achieve your goals? It seems the great paradox with women that by NOT giving a fuck you achieve your goal….so how much is appropriate without falling into pedestalizing, or ‘oneitis’, orbiting etc?”

  22. Women want a man that they can control, obtain commitment from and extract resources from, not necessarily a good looking, dominant alpha male type guy who she will constantly have to compete for if many other woman want him as well.

    I’m not so sure that this redpill dogma that Rollo promulgates is accurate and is considered “settled science.”

    See the “Alex on Life” Youtube channel:

  23. @Tony232

    There are two men standing in front of a woman. Both are billionaires. One looks like Brad Pitt while filming Fight Club and has the attitude to match. The other looks like Danny DeVito and is a beta schlub.

    If you honestly think she’s gonna pick DeVito, you’re really lacking sense.

  24. @Tam
    Checked “ALL” his reviews on Amazon and that Woodfine (REAL NAME) guy (or as you would nickname him, “cunt”) is all over the place, must be an old-school attachment psycher. Hence calling its adherents “evo-psycho”. For all that he seems to follow the Sphere closely, he liked Ian Ironwood’s book, refers to CH all the time, reviewed a Brit book on middle-aged parents a la NMMNG, read Esther Perel’s book, but seems to be gagging on it all a bit.

    He also likes CD players and Eric Dolphy records.

    What I don’t get is why he wastes his time reviewing shit on Amazon, why would anybody seek validation that way. Like some other bearded clam sort who posts pointless comment meanderings on grey-printed websites and keeps fucking with his screen name.

  25. I owe you big time Rollo, you’ve enabled me to crystallize the disparate kinks in the matrix into some kind of rational theme, so damn straight I’m buying your book.
    ‘Thanks’ just doesn’t seem to cut it…

  26. Rollo: Congratulations and thank you for your writing. I have been reading the blog for about a year and guess what? For me, you inoculated me by connecting the dots and handing me information I already knew and saw but now realize more clearly. You opened my eyes. In regards to not having that crisis of divorce or the estrangement of a parent or feeling helpless in today’s society you seriously administered to me preventive medicine. Thank you. And thank you again.

    I even see why you are hopeful for the future as explained in your Christian McQueen podcast. (Put it as a priority to do another podcast for this book, please). You are making a difference in the Manosphere, one man at a time with as Sam’s foreward says: “…your mastery of your art is improving millions of mens lives around the world” . Well done.

    Red pill is not painful for me. It now makes everything I do more effortless. (It does help that I have a literal abundance in my life. I’ve worked hard and I don’t lack much these days). There are those like Cypher in The Matrix, a crew member disillusioned with the harshness of the real world. But that is not me.

    While you are in the question answering mode, I have a simple question. I have no ulterior motives in asking. Are you an ENTJ– Meyer’s Brigg’s type?
    I have had remarkable success in the past year in hooking up with INTJ male friends and collecting them in my core gang. We resonate on ideas and interests and are all red pill. I’m just curious Commander!

    @ Orsogrigio: I think I could point you in a direction for your son. I wanted to have red pill primers for my son but found it difficult to overcome the massive amount of “The Game” employed in the Manosphere ever since I read Neil Strauss’ book when it first came out. I found it uncomfortable to teach my pre-college son how to get laid. (He’s currently 20.)

    Teach your son how to be good at being a man just after puberty (now). A primer essay on this is Jack Donovan’s book “The Way of Men”. It explains the key attributes of a masculine male in a feminized society. It teaches the importance of hanging out with men good at being men at times (at times when women are not invited to participate– by the way he must participate in male team sports in high school as a pre-requisite to being a man later on). He explains evolutionary psychology of men and how that relates to behavioral psychology in contemporary society (of course as Rollo does for females).

    Another thing is to peruse the Manosphere for topics relevant to you and your son. Ian Ironwood’s kindle book is invaluable for this. It is hard for you to navigate the Manosphere blogs with their disparate messages but the big three Roosh, Roissy and Rollo with the insanely congruent message being the best. The book is:The Manosphere: A New Hope For Masculinity on kindle only.

    An on the subject of Ian Ironwood, who happens to be a write by trade–with excellent writing skills, he has a blog called the red pill room. At that blog site he has a tab called the red pill primer for boys. Check it out.

  27. I am looking forward to reading this one and having my views challenged, waited a really long time for this book. I might even buy a copy for my 15 year old cousin.

  28. Awesome. Just was with a super, super hot girl last night, talked for like 4 hours and ended up giving her a massage for like an hour, which went really well. For better or for worse it’s the only way I’m comfortable initiating physical contact for the time being.

    But yep. Threw me right back into ONE-itis. But thanks to RM I’m more self-aware now…even to the point where I pulled myself out of it while it was happening and just stayed cool and detached, without closing myself off to the experience.

    A bad horse doesn’t go until it’s bruised and bleeding. A good horse goes even at the shadow of the whip.

    The emotional upheaval I experienced the day after….well, let’s say a lot of Blue Pill stuff. I’m almost over it now. It was intense, but back in the day this shit would last for MONTHS and ruin my life and my ability to function.

    The picture’s getting a lot clearer. My main problem is I’m isolating myself. I’ve found, to my pleasant surprise, that my interaction and behavior with women is 1,000,000x better than it ever was. I haven’t even been ‘practicing’ — it just happens.

    I’ve read so much on here and I just know “not to go there” with certain things — i.e. Blue Pill Game.

    Learning what NOT to do has actually helped me more than reading about what I “SHOULD” do.

    Anyway, yeah. That was very cool to basically have been in the PERFECT situation to get ONE-itis — girl into a lot of the same things I’m into, we’re connecting here and there about this and that, and is a definite HB10, no questions asked —

    — and yet here I am a day later and I feel like the worst of it is over. I’ve RE-FRAMED my understanding of my past failures with women, all the cases of ONE-itis that ended in disaster….so again: good horse goes even at the shadow of the whip.

    “It’s okay I had a great time. It’s okay I enjoyed myself. Just don’t be a dummy. See that bear trap? How many times have you stepped in those things? That’s right. Go around it and keep going the way you were going. You’re doing okay. You’re getting there.”

    That’s more of my internal dialogue now, which I think is very healthy. Especially compared to what it used to be.

    Again, all thanks to RM. Women are such a specific topic for men it really needs to be addressed individually, and this hits the nail on the head unlike anything else out there. I still use all my other techniques and knowledge and this and that for physical/psychological/emotional health, but yeah — such a specific area needs to be specifically addressed. If it weren’t for RM I would be out in the weeds as far as women go.

    I’m feeling way more confident now and just like confidence in everything else….it comes from KNOWING HOW STUFF WORKS. It’s always a case-by-case basis, but knowing the FOUNDATION and understanding the STRUCTURE is what gives you confidence — because that gives you the COMPETENCE to adapt to different situations. Because you “get it” on a foundational, structural level. There will always be variables, and lots of them, but when you understand the structure, you can deal with it and figure things out as you go along.

    Keep it up, awesome stuff as usual.

  29. I’m looking forward to Sam finishing up the audiobook version. My friends whom are willfully illerate need to hear the message. Good luck to you both and thanks for the inspiration!

  30. Thanks Rollo. Every psychologist I know dismisses Jung and Meyers Briggs. To much pop psychology? I don’t know anything about Jung. I have found that Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality inventory even if too glib or superficial has helped me develop a gang of good guys to hang out with.

    It has helped me not rail against my wife’s weaknesses or differences from me (she is an ENFP–the life of the party and well respected in social circles) and maximize my strengths and minimize my weaknesses.

    I recently had an incident with my receptionist at my office (A 15 year employee in my office) and through analysis of the situation and her personality traits, came to realize that she was exhibiting BPD traits and I went to play to her strengths and avoid other employees pushing her weaknesses. ( in true BPD fashion, when asked if she thought if three other key employees respected her after 15 years, she couldn’t respond in the affirmative…WTF?) Due to my analysis I averted losing a key employee. She asked her son, a psychologist, whether she should submit to my request to take a Myers-Briggs test in order for me to help others in the office avoid her weakness traits and play to her strengths: So her son tells her Myers Briggs is bullshit and don’t submit to it. So she didn’t. But I surmised her type (not an easy task) and three months later I didn’t lose a 15 year veteran in my office after she threatened to quit because everyone in the office hated her (they didn’t, she had faults as a BPD adult that couldn’t take one more minute of people pointing them out although she functioned adequately. But was an emotional cripple at times.)

    I know pathologic psychology and behavioral psychology from my physician training. Had a BPD girl fling briefly (but not long enough to be sucked in) and another girl fling that had a psychotic break during the time I was dating her briefly, also. But that was briefly 30 years ago and no damage done because I was red pill back then. I went beta at times since then during marriage but never blue pill. Thank you one more time for pointing out purple pill traps. Alpha frame. Red pill frame. Works for me.

    My high maintenance wife, currently +3 to my SMV (X24.9 years) keeps me on my toes but does not have psycho-pathology beyond what you describe in The Rational male. She’s a WILF. You inspired me to hit the gym, weight lift. Keep frame. DHV. Be a better man. Eliminate vices. Etc.

    Sorry to ramble, but I’d like to throw spaghetti against the wall and see if the ideas stick. I’ve read many, many classic and inspiring books over the last 40 years and the rational male books and the blog rank among the top for content and excellent writing style.

    Good to hear you say that. Mastery = less effort to achieve. Less worry. Fewer barriers to accomplish in any field of endeavor.

    It seems as though you are masterful at “Game” these days.

  32. I didn’t know of Sam Botta until this past week. Anyone have a link to one of his classic Youtube voice overs or movie trailers? Just want to hear his classic voice.

    He wrote a unique, well done, Forward in the new book.

  33. @Sun,

    I’ve been seeing you around since you were posting on TRP and I had a discussion with you there. I haven’t seen you post around there for awhile, but I have mostly stopped posting there as well.

    I would very much like to hear your story. Not to threadjack. Any time you can fit it into a comment around here.

  34. @sjfrellc re:MBTI

    Psychologists/Psychiatrists get into the field because they are trying to fix themselves. Ask any CD or Psych nurse…..anywhere.

    To accept the reality of ANY pathology being properly and taxonomic-ally described (via MBTI) is to accept their own most deeply held frailty as open to observation. Just cant have that.

    Thing is dude, is that “educations” (and credential-ism) are the most important to people that frankly aren’t very fucking smart.

  35. @Rollo,

    Holy fuck. It has been… 17 months since I first found your website. And read everything. And every comment. And from here I found the red pill forums. I found you from the talk about marriage coping with infidelity forums.

    You honestly saved my life.

    I was so desperate for answers and no therapist, no friend, no one had any answer. Then you did. And the entire manosphere opened up.

    Ha. 17 months ago I, quite literally, had a glock 19 in my mouth.

    Look at me now.

    I really hope you know how much of a difference this knowledge, just having an answer, something that actually makes sense, can mean when you are completely lost and bleeding to death in the wilderness.

  36. First time poster, but an avid reader for the past six months. Just wanted to say thanks for helping to dispel the magic, Rollo. I just ordered a copy.

  37. @ Rollo – a massive congrats on the new book. Can’t thank you enough. I consider myself to now have two lives – one pre and one post Red Pill life.

    @ orsogrigio –

    I have a 10 y/o son so I also ponder when he should be exposed to such life-changing literature such as The Rational Male series and Red Pill wisdom in general. My thoughts are, that if he is a natural Alpha, then leave him be until he experiences ‘female trauma’, or, if you see him being manipulated by the FI. I’d also be inclined to give him the 16 Commandments of Poon as a ‘lighter and comical’ RP precursor, as RM is a dense read and smack in the face for a young guy. Something so ‘deep level’ might scare him off. But if he’s beta by middle high school (15/16), I’ll probably give it to him then.

    This may be taking it to the extreme, but I have taken measures to ensure he will be given the RM series should something happen to me before I have the opportunity to give it to him myself.

  38. @Tilikum

    It is my experience among my personal and professional acquaintances, albeit in the Midwest where less psychopathic is the rule, that only 50% of psychologists are crazy in search of self correcting, and the other half are normal. Really. My sister-in-law is one of the former. I avoid her like the plague. Last family meet-up I brought up MBTI because of my absolute joy of hanging out with my guy friend same types and of course she dismissed my interest in Meyers-Briggs as trivial. Typical

    Your description of MBTI Dissing is accurate. The same way red pill truths are denied via ego investments. It’s too hard to admit. If you are a failure. The 50% of psychologists that are lacking can’t find the time to acknowledge MBTI because it shames them in their weaknesses. Keep in mind that I once again state I don’t know JUNGian stuff. And its demerits in the psychology world.

    My proposition is that if people don’t have prior trauma, are ego fulfilled, want to perform better at game (at any level–single young, christian, old married men), then you can do worse that understand your’s and theirs psyche. Minimize your personality weaknesses and maximize your strengths. It is just “GAME”.
    As a lover, worker, parent, etc play to your strengths and don’t supplicate to your weaknesses. Don’t play on your partner’s weaknesses and go with the flow and elevate your partners strengths. If your partner needs to flow like the wind, be the wind beneath her wings. E. G. Roissy’s IX’th commandment of Poon. Be a designated driver. Go to a football tailgater and let your spouse have her fun Quote:

    “Set yourself apart from other men and connect with a woman’s emotional landscape. Her mind is an alien world that requires deft navigation to reach your rendevous. Frolic in the surf of emotions rather than the arid desert of logic. Be playful. Employ all your senses. Describe in lush detail scenarios to set her heart afire. Give your feelings freedom to roam. ROAM. Yes, that is a good word. You’re not on a linear path with her. You are ROAMING all over, taking her on an adventure. In this world, there is no need to finish thoughts or draw conclusions. There is only need to EXPERIENCE. You’re grabbing her hand and running with her down an infinite, labyrinthine alleyway with no end, laughing and letting your fingers glide on the cobblestone walls along the way.”

    My spouse doesn’t need my bullshit INTJ rationalism, she needs her adventure for being alive and it is my job not to be a taker and not a giver. I play into her needs (strengths) and avoid probing her weaknesses (men don’t do well to shit test their women).

    My rural friends near my hunting property are distinguished by either their taker or giver personalities. I have respect in the rural hunting areas as being a giver, not a taker. It is not strictly game but it has a lot to to with DHV and social proof. Being a Giver rather than Taker in a civilized rural society ups your standing out there.

  39. @StringsofCoins

    Actually not the same Sun Wukong, hahaha. I’ve not posted outside RM in the sphere. Rather keep my profile somewhat low.

    I suppose I can oblige you. My story’s pretty common, honestly. Abused by both parents, they divorced after dad beat mom one too many times, grew up with no self esteem and a lot of Christian/feminist self-shaming from mom. Got rejected by at least 70 different chicks with 0 success by the time I was through my freshman year of high school (stopped keeping track after that) and that pretty much set the tone for my dealings with women for the next 25 years.

    Very high IQ, geeky type with decent looks and played enough sports when younger that I’ve never gotten truly out of shape (just never been ripped above the waist thanks to soccer). Never finished college due to lack of ambition, mission, and confidence. I’d wager a lot of my aimlessness was because of the futile search for love, security, and happiness that I never had in family. Broken homes do that to a kid. Thought I’d find it in a woman with pure Blue Pill advice. You can guess how that worked out.

    Lots of horrible relationships (and a lot of hard-earned personal lessons) later I found myself contemplating suicide a lot after getting dumped for another dude/the carousel yet again. At least the fifth time that I can remember it’s happened in my life during a “serious” relationship. My solution was to buy a bunch of camping gear, load up the bike, and disappear for a month and a half looping from Texas around the Southwest/West Coast and back. I figured if I wanted to die after that I could, it would just be nice to see something pretty and new to me before I died. If I’m gonna die might as well do something I’d normally regard as irresponsible anyway, right?

    A few months after getting back from that I quit my I.T. job after it makes me pull a 140 hour week. No, that’s not a typo. One hundred forty hour week. Absolutely hellish employer sucked the last of the life right out of me. I sit on ass a few months continuing to contemplate the philosophical implications of suicide (reading the Myth of Sisyphus, stuff along those lines), seeing a therapist, playing video games, and drinking.

    Somehow in all my philosophical exploration, I found myself staring at RM reading something that finally put all my experience and observations in a consistent framework. That was about a year ago. I started picking up the pieces, got a new job making twice what I’ve ever made before doing new stuff. I spent last summer practicing some on what I’ve learned from the ‘sphere, but repeated failures to crack in to the HB6+ market discouraged me so I’ve been working on improving fitness, earning money to rework my wardrobe, and introspecting in an attempt to throw out more BP habits.

    So here I find myself. Alive, learning Game, seeing if I can build a great Man out of all this scrap, still not convinced suicide is immoral or wrong, but also not convinced it’s my path for the moment. I suppose despite my lack of religion, my one prayer has become the prayer to Death from Game of Thrones: “Not today.”

  40. @Stuttie

    I think puberty is the time to at least discuss hypergamy. Make sure a guy knows what he’s up against and see what he can do with that much information.

  41. @ sun –

    I feel guilty when I hear stories like yours. Your upbringing was the polar opposite of mine, yet here we both are. I was a greater beta that still managed to rack up a decent notch count of HB6-8’s…..I basically had a foot-stomping tantrum post divorce when I couldn’t pull the quality of poon I was used to pre marriage (after letting myself go in my bp beta comfort zone). A good buddy of mine , probably sick of my bp oneitis tantrums, gave me the red pill and I haven’t looked back.

    I’m pretty sure I can speak for all the commenters here when I say the world is better a place with you still in it.

  42. The paperback version has gone live on

    I just purchased the paperback copy of “The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine”

    It arrives on my birthday tomorrow.

    This is the greatest gift a man can receive… Words cannot express my gratitude for this quality content that’s transformed my life.

  43. The most life changing blog/books I’ll ever read. I stumbled across this site a year ago and initially couldnt make much sense of anything. Reading your first book popped the bubble of reality I was in and many still are in. Keep the awesome work flowing Rollo.

  44. tells me it will deliver the paperback to me on thursday. Hope I will have the time to read it on the weekend and will still be on time to write the first german review on sunday evening.

  45. Roll,

    When will thr book be available in paperback edition?

    Sent from my BlackBerry® by Boost Mobile

  46. Thank you very much for your effort on enlightening males in the world. Your concise and precise communication style, unlike any other authors in the manosphere, bring clarity to audience like myself.

  47. @Sun,

    You’ve really got to move out of the South. I mean we all agree that fat women are completely unfuckable. So where you live 70% of the women are written off instantly. Moving to a different state you can increase the pool of women by a solid 30%.

    I can’t stand fat women. My oldest friend’s obese sister has had a huge crush on me for 20 years. She has asked me out three times. She’s obese. Not even just fat. She isn’t even a woman to me. I don’t know if fat women realize that they don’t even count as women. They are more like androgynous blobs. Sure they take up space, lots of space, and probably have a vagina somewhere, but in no way do they register as a female or feminine.

    You can see thin women (actual women) lie to fatties. I’ve seen it happen A LOT. The actual women don’t want the competition so they lie to the fatties.

    If you want to perform an experiment try searching OKCupid for thin women with different parameters. Here where I live when I search for LDS women there are so many thin ones. They aren’t all tatted up single mothers either.

    Don’t get me wrong they are still women so they are still narcissistic hypergamous sluts and all think they are going to marry a ripped genius crime-fighting billionaire. But they aren’t fat.

  48. Will order paperback – will write German review. The better-beta-PUA-scene in Germany needs a lot of those preventive pills …

  49. I just bought it Rollo! Thanks for everything! You’ve changed my life for the better. Yeah the red pill is a bitch but damn it’s good to be free.

  50. Congratulations Rollo. Ordering the print copy for my oldest son. You made sense of the nonsensical to me. I don’t know how I would’ve handled the last year without you, Dalrock, and CH. I do know that many men want to change the world, few do, you have.

  51. @StringsofCoins

    Yeah, I know. There’s legit reasons I’m stuck here for now. Believe me, my eyes are absolutely fixed on getting the hell out of here as soon as I can. In the meantime, if I can learn Game well enough to regularly pull HB6s here, every else is easy mode.

    Last time I was in San Fran, pulling cute little petite chicks was just cast, set, reel. If I can do decently here, in places like that they’ll be hitting on me.

  52. Thanks for your work Rollo. My brother and I are on our way to turning the tables for good despite decades of useless programming from the Feminine Imperative. All I have are slivers, but whenever I talk to women now I can actually see the punches coming. I will be getting your new book, I am quite eager for a handy reference on social conventions.

  53. Congrats on the new book Rollo. Your first book was a big turning point in my life a little over a year ago and was the best intro into “red pill” thinking for me. I’d always had these thoughts and feelings about inter gender dynamics but you drive it home and made me realize I’m not alone. Looking forward to reading the new book..and I plan on sharing.

  54. So proud of you and all of us. We might be just a small voice, but I hope we get heard.
    God bless you Rollo. We need a change.

  55. For the woman reading this blog. We ares NOT evil misogynists. We Love women. Get the book. Read. Appreciate the Man that makes your life better.!!!

  56. Mine will be delivered on Friday. I can’t wait. This starting to sound like an echo chamber, but keep up the great work Rollo. It is desparately needed these days.

  57. Rollo, I just ordered both books from Amazon, new paperbacks. I had never bought the first book because I thought it might be the same stuff that you (so generously) share with us for free on this blog. If that is the case, I would not blame you, as there is nothing wrong with turning a great blog into a book, and who could complain that the author simply made each chapter available for free gradually?

    But I have decided that even if that is the case, I don’t care, I want the book to hold in my hands, and you deserve the small bit of financial support that I can provide anyway.

    I intend to buy more copies in the future and give them to people who need them, or leave them in men’s rooms.

  58. @superfool, a sad fact is that not one women in the United States today would even entertain reading the book, let alone understanding or agreeing with it. Not one. Literally not one, even including PhDs who are professors in college who claim to specialize in sociology or psychology. The crazy-left and modern women simply cannot face any truth that hurts their feelings or goes against narrative control. Not one can even read this book without stomping her feet and running away, even though the facts presented by Rollo are simply obvious facts to any brain that exists in this world and is capable of rational thought.

    I can think of so many women I want to give this book to, but it would be a waste of money and effort. Not one is capable of even giving its ideas a fair chance.

    This is a very, very sad state of affairs. And these women have a vote that is equal to yours, and they can be judges who force abortions on states and decide “no fault” divorces that take fathers away from the kids who need them while destroying half his wealth that he would have used to provide for and protect them.

    I have been experimenting lately after going truly MGTOW (by choice, not by bitter-beta unable to get laid rationale) (these crazy women are dangerous and the sex is not worth it). After they piss me off and I’m nexting them, I go ahead and send them some stuff from this blog. Not one of them is capable of giving it a fair chance. The more “educated” they (think they) are the worse it is.

    Women today younger than 30 are SO FAR programmed in the leftist narrative control that they are literally like programmed robots that spit out the narrative control platitudes: “women and men are equal”; “pay gap”, etc.

    God help us.

  59. Would you mind if I printed out fake covers and stuck them on, so that the lads can read them in peace in the student union bar?
    Something about soil mechanics or calculus maybe, with a colorful, highly stylized techy diagram of some construction or graph for the benefit of illiterates? Oh and a B&W photo of a beardy guy with glasses on the back.
    That should keep the SJW fascists at a safe remove, like garlic to them it is.

    Did you happen to take a screen capture of the Amazon page LAST NIGHT?

    If so, please paste it here.

    If you haven’t bought Rollo’s new book, this is your moment.


    ROLLO TOMASSI is in the TOP 10!

    This is the “IMPOSSIBLE” that ALL AUTHORS dream of.

    Your purchase today can put Rollo Tomassi at #1 instead of Tim Ferriss

    or the series of people that have contributed to the #2 book… (Esther and Jerry Hicks, Louise Hays, Cheryl Richardson, Doreen Virtue, Candace Pert, Mona Lisa Schulz, Christiane Northrop, Gay Hendricks, and Leon Nacson)

    Hint: Those contributors are not exactly readers of The Rational Male blog.

    Since it’s my birthday, I will make this request of you:

    If you believe in the material, it’s time to use all social networking accounts to get everyone you influence to get “The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine” — even if they choose not to read it, they know someone that needs it.

    And, if you appreciate the content, get the new Rollo Tomassi book. The price is so low, Rollo isn’t doing this for the money. Right now, you have the opportunity…

    to make our PROFESSOR hit #1 among ALL books on AMAZON!

  61. @anon … @all:

    I just ordered both books from Amazon, new paperbacks. I had never bought the first book because I thought it might be the same stuff that you (so generously) share with us for free on this blog

    Reasons to purchase “The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine

    1. Learn from its NEW material. (There’s a ton of it)
    3. #1 means what YOU believe in will no longer be ignored by all media

    Further, you can give it away once you’ve finished reading it.

    Please add to this list of “Why by ‘The Rational Male: Preventive Medicine'”

  62. “What research did you do for your books? Did you interview women?”
    I my view ..

    Ignore what they say, watch what they do.

    Seen one, seen ’em all.

    AWALT ..

    get the picture?
    It’s emergent behaviour, not rational discourse we’re looking at. They don’t even, can’t even ..

  63. Rollo.

    What can i do about my friends in my band?

    They think the rational male is lame, and prefer to be ignorant of it and social dynamics.

    One read an excerpt and said it condones rape.

    Amazing that i got completely ridiculed for reading this book and trying to help my friends who were in bad situations with women (by their own doing)

    What do you think of this?

  64. I’m about half way through the 2nd book. It is excellent, further illuminates these realities in greater detail. Your work continues to be more enlightening, empowering and liberating. You have been painstakingly deliberate and obviously make great efforts in your work. You are unique in this effort due to your depth and rationality. You are more detailed, nonbias, honest and comprehensive than anyone else I’ve read or discussed this with. Thank you VERY much.

Speak your mind
