The Rational Male Audio Book

TRM_Audible_Cover

Well, it’s been a long time coming, but I’m proud to announce that the audio version of my first book The Rational Male is now available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

As I mentioned in November, the book was narrated by professional voice talent Sam Botta. Sam has been my shadow for about as long as I’ve had the blog up and has made a great many personal investments on his own to see this book through. In November, I also mentioned Sam’s medical issues and I’m happy to say that I’ve worked out a beneficial royalties arrangement to help him with his exorbitant medical bills. So when you buy the over 14-hour long audio version of The Rational Male you’re also helping Sam.

A lot of readers have asked me why I didn’t have an audio version available from the get go, or why it’s been about two and a half years since I published the first book that I’m now releasing the audio. I had actually considered an audio version when I published in 2013, but I had little idea of how influential and well received the book would be then so I figured I’d give the book a year to allow it to mature.

I’m glad I did now because there’s a lot to digest in The Rational Male, to say the least. I’ve mentioned it before, but I didn’t think I’d be publishing any other book after TRM so I wanted to make it as comprehensive as possible. I’m not an author by trade, but I do enjoy writing both on this blog, essays and now two books.

Exploring Red Pill awareness and spreading the collective experiences of men from all over the world has always been the point of both books – and soon, the third book. So I view this audio version as another means to accessing Red Pill awareness. I was a bit hesitant to do an audio version because I’ve always intended my work to be referenceable and relative to my other essays or stories I use to bolster my points. It’s kind of difficult to deliver the same message, one that’s meant to be well considered, while it’s being read to you and then

I was a bit hesitant to do an audio version because I’ve always intended my work to be referenceable and relative to my other essays or stories I use to bolster my points. And that’s to say nothing about the involved discussion of my commenters on each post. It’s kind of difficult to deliver the same message, one that’s meant to be well considered, while it’s being read to you and then moving on to the next topic of thought.

So it was for that reason I initially delayed the first book’s audio, however, I do feel the book has made a significant impact in Red Pill awareness and the manosphere to the point where I think its accessibility makes it useful.

The other reason was that I was determined to have Sam Botta do the reading after his having done so much for the reach of my work. I won’t belabor his hit-and-run accident – I hope Sam will explain how he’s doing in the comments here – but, suffice to say he was involved in an accident that meant he basically had to relearn how to speak, walk, sleep and do many other things we regularly take for granted.

I wanted him to do the read and his work on the audiobook, he says, was instrumental in his year-long recovery.

So there you have it. I’m glad it’s finally been released into the wild and I’m already getting positive feedback on it. I would hope you’d buy this version of the book with the same intent you bought the physical copy; to share it and discuss the essays with other men (and women) who aren’t (or as) Red Pill aware. Obviously, I’d like others to buy the book as well, but more importantly, I’d like it to be shared and explored, so with that in mind, please, loan it or listen to it with other men you think will benefit from it.

And, just at the end here, yes I do plan to release an audio version of Preventive Medicine soon, but it also suffers from a need for visual aids from the book so I’m brainstorming ways to do this. Also, yes, I am in the beginning stages of compiling and writing the third Rational Male series book, and if you have any thoughts on it, please let me know in the comments.

Thanks all.

Rollo, you’re a gift from Heaven! I’m so tired about some recent infighting in Dalrock’s comments, and my RSS reader has failed to give me some of your posts. And recently I accepted that I will probably never unplug my father from the Matrix, despite the success with my younger brother (read TRM vol. 1 last summer; gets it). And having a “not like my father” complex is the last thing I want. Well, you have a lot of experience, but you have only second-hand data on raising a son. This is hard.

One last thought, sorry: don’t worry about audiobook perception. You’re probably a visual type (yeah, world class designer), but some people have auditory sensory modality. When I listen to stupid (especially christian) manginas, I download it all and then play them at 1.7x speed (the voice pitch matches their ball-less minds then). For material which is logical and of substance, I must stay at the natural speed, but the mental model of the text can still fit into my random-access audio memory. Cuts both ways – if I want to remeber e.g. a complex route directions I need to “say… Read more »

Hi @scribblerg

It sounds like your books are pretty cool. Have you thought about going the self-published e-book route?

Disintermediation of the publishing houses (and blu-pill enforcers) is underway in a big way, and lots of authors who would have been unable to get past the PH gatekeepers are now finding their audiences by online publishing and on-demand printing.

I mean, shit, one author is making a killing selling dinosaur rape fantasy porn that a publishing house wouldn’t have touched with a 100-foot pole in years gone by.

First of all, why did you even link an article by that shitbag Lindy West?

Second of all, let’s not even pretend that female authors don’t have it much easier in the current market than male authors.

I didn’t know you wanted to experience the tale of reptilian passion.

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320656064l/142458.jpg Flashman is a large man, six feet two inches (1.88 m) tall and close to 13 stone (about 180 pounds or 82 kg). In Flashman and the Tiger, he mentions that one of his grandchildren has black hair and eyes, resembling him in his younger years. His dark colouring frequently enabled him to pass (in disguise) for a Pashtun. He claims only three natural talents: horsemanship, facility with foreign languages, and fornication. He becomes an expert cricket-bowler, but only through hard effort (he needed sporting credit at Rugby School, and feared to play rugby football). He can also display… Read more »

“I didn’t know you wanted to experience the tale of reptilian passion”

I knew about the dinotrux shows and toys but I didn’t know that dinofux was so popular

Don’t know what ya’ll are gretching about. Sex happens in the reptile brain anyways.

Deep down, can’t you all feel the pull of dat sweet, giant cloaca?

“I didn’t know that dinofux was so popular . . .” Not only is it popular, it is classified as . . . science fiction, and science fiction has become something that boys think that girls read. This short piece actually won a Nebula Award for Best Short Story in science fiction or fantasy: http://www.apex-magazine.com/if-you-were-a-dinosaur-my-love/ And it doesn’t even make the slightest pretence at being SF. It’s just a strange revenge daydream thingy, so I guess that would make it a fantasy, but that isn’t exactly what “fantasy” is supposed to mean in context. Women have even ruined the dreams… Read more »

@culum Yeah, I know that Julien stuff you are talking about. I’ve been listening to PIMP, but pretty much same stuff. I’ve just been talking mostly girls who are vendors. They’re PAID to talk to you, so the converstaion starts out 50/50. They are actually great people to work on to get started in a day since they give you a lot of leway. The 7.5 kind of caught me off guard since she didn’t really have any interest in me, and not having dealt much with girls like that plus being very tired meant I couldn’t do much. I… Read more »

Hem hem. Anyways. FR! In the previous thread I mentioned I was gonna try to get a day 3 with a cute social circle girl, and if that didn’t materialize I’d daygame. So txed the girl (I’ll call her J) and it didn’t work out, so I went day gaming. Tried a new location and it turned out to be non-ideal – all couples, families, and high schoolers, and not as many people as I expected overall. Scanned around for 30-45 minutes then left since the sun was setting. The only viable set was two girls, real cuties really, who… Read more »

Women have even ruined the dreams boys have of someday becoming a space pirate or explorer.

@kfg “Not only is it popular, it is classified as . . . science fiction, and science fiction has become something that boys think that girls read.” I haven’t trusted the classifications books have since I discovered that the library had a single category for sci-fi/fantasy. ‘Genre fiction.’ That’s the only thing that ties the two together, and that concept is some ivory-tower ‘not true literature’ bullshit. It’s irrelevant for the reader. The reader looking for good sci-fi is in a totally different place than the reader looking for good fantasy. They do utterly different things. Neither of those things… Read more »

That’s good. Hits particulars I’ve not seen discussed before.

An excellent fictional rendering of many of those concepts: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundation_series

@Forge & @KFG – interesting article. If you’re interested in these subjects: the Foundation series (one of my all time top favourites – be sure to read in *publication* order, not story chronology order – basically the stuff he wrote in the 1950s is a million times better than the 1980s prequels/sequels) is Asimov’s fictionalized reimagining of Gibbons’ Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire. But there are other (more nuanced) takes on the vigorousness/decline of civilizations than that blog post. In particular see Arnold Toynbee’s multi-volume A Study of History which looks at this in detail (I must confess… Read more »
