Improvement Library

This reading list is essentially an ever growing rough draft of our self improvement. In my experience these were the books that helped me along my journey with my personal development. Expect about a review per month. I don’t want to flood this site with merely reviews of other people’s work. With each book you should gain not only knowledge, but executable actions within each. Improve your mind, improve your body, improve your life.

Worthless
The first and probably the most influential book thus far in relation to my college experience, Worthless was the book that got me out of the Liberal Arts and Science and back into STEM. This book should be required of every graduating high school senior before wasting two years and 16 grand later in the undeclared major and fucking up their 4 year graduation plan.

Enjoy the Decline
The second installment in the Aaron Clarey collection, I would argue that Enjoy the Decline almost runs as a sequel to Worthless. This one serves the reader as a manual to let go of declining empire and just have fun. In order to rebuild we must first destroy and start fresh. For those of you looking to save it, good luck, but for those who are looking to avenge the death of your precious land, Aaron and I got two words for you. Enjoy it.

Day Bang: How To Casually Pick Up Girls During The Day
If you grow tired of the night game as I tend to do at times, Roosh V. does it again with Day Bang. Providing step-by-step material to not ‘scare the cat’ as most girls are not used to guys with enough to balls to cold approach them (gasp!) during the day. They will be forced to put down their starbucks and iPhone to interact with you. Nerve racking isn’t it?

Self Reliance alone will make this a worthwhile read. For what law is sacred, but that of your own constitution?

If you don’t believe in the power of the mindset and positive psychology you will after putting into action the the methods revealed in this book.

King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine
One hell if a compliment to The Way of Men, KWML describes the 4 levels of the male psyche in its mature masculine and its immature masculine. With a lack of write of passage in today’s age what is there to separate the boys from the men?

Extraordinary Healing: The Amazing Power of Your Body’s Secret Healing System
Too much does Western medicine focus on the the external forces to combat sickness. With the pharmaceuticals running rampant there is more of focus on ‘buy this pill and feel great!’…with side effects worse than the actual ailment you went in for in the first place. Extraordinary healing focuses inward towards the body’s own healing system. Eat right, sleep, exercise, manage stress, have fun, laugh, meditate, are only a small list of things you can do that (really they do!) help you body heal itself.
