Raising a son is difficult and a father needs all the help he can get. Here’s a list of books to help you raise a great masculine man.
The 48 Laws of Power
Robert Greene’s work is timeless. If you love history you will love this title as it is filled with stories from the past with lessons from royalty to con artists.
The 49th law is never telling people that you’ve read The 48 Laws of Power. From one perspective it can be looked at as a book that teaches one how to be untrustworthy and evil. This is the reputation many levied on the book.
However, from my perspective, it can be used defensively to make one aware of the cons and games played by nefarious characters in our lives.
Use this to help you navigate school politics, corporate politics, social politics, and politics in general.
Contagious: Why Things Catch On
As a man ventures into entrepreneurship, he must explore an abundance of case studies. When I consult new entrepreneurs my first suggestion is to compile a collection of case studies. Learn from the mistakes and successes of others to save time and money.
This title includes interesting stories of ventures that include one story of an underground pub that requires a secret password and invite-only access that propels the revenue of the establishment.
Exclusivity must be understood because it enhances perceived value. Something that is for everyone is for no one. Even Amazon once only sold books.
Expect to learn about triggers, emotions, storytelling, social currency, and more!
Outline of History
A man with no concept of the past is doomed to be a victim of the future.
This classic title by H.G. Wells will give you a well-rounded concept of the history of the world dating back as far as the first human being through Babylon and all of the major empires.
If you can get through the 1,000+ pages of documentation you will surpass the intellect of your friend circle by eons.
The Patriot Report
Many think they know about central banking and the Federal Reserve but they have no idea how deep the rabbit hole goes. You can’t know money unless you know the history of money and the modern financial system.
This new title by Hotep Jesus begins with the bankers who financed the royalty of Europe in the 17th – 19th centuries. It then moves into the first central banks in The United States of America, how they came to be and how they were destroyed.
Expect to gain intense knowledge about the Constitution and how it has been attacked and how many of our rights as Americans have been destroyed by The Supreme Court.
It includes the arguments made by Senators, state representatives, and justices that can be used today to affirm your God-given rights.
The title ends with details on how most wars are banker wars and could have been prevented. This is a conspiracy theorist’s dream collector’s item.
The Biden economy has brought about a recession much like the Great Depression. But for readers of Benjamin Graham’s work, this is good news.
You will learn about the history of the stock market’s rises, and falls and how to leverage them to create wealth.
If you’ve read the Patriot Report this is the perfect companion read to supplement your understanding of personal investing.
This is the bible for personal investing.
If the leaders of Rome were like Marcus Aurelius or at least followed his wisdom they would not have suffered such a tragic fate.
This title is something every father must have his son read. You do not need to rediscover lessons that have already been learned and scribed.
Marcus is a man who has come as come closer to death and survived than the majority of us will. He has come as close to evil men and navigated their treachery better than most of us could.
