This came up in a social media feed and I though I'll give it a look.
After the first minute I thought I had made a mistake but I decided to keep with it as it had to get better right?
To be honest, I hated almost all of it. By this clowns definition I am a manly guy so, why did I hate this audio book so much that I actually took the trouble to write a review like this?
Well here is why:
If you remove some lame quips about people like Rosie O'Donnell and Justin Bieber and the ENDLESS religious babel, what have you got left?
About 10 lists of do's and don'ts and a poorly thought out rant.
Being honest, the actual 'content' of this could and should've been a couple of blog posts at best as there is so little of it.
It was terrible, especially the "Wan't to date my daughters list." this was especially lame! It was so bad and he is so unconvincing as an alpha male that this was a total waste of time.
I did stick with it however, hoping there was a nugget of good in it and aside from the use of Crispin as a name for Snowflakes it was dire!
Oh, this joker may have got my money, however he is still a tool.
I do agree men are being watered down all over the place but there no substance to this rant at all, it's just that, a rant.
Sorry Doug, you need to add some actual content not just moan for two long hours, do the research and offer something more than 'Love God, get a gun and turn up for work! It could have been so much more...
Author has the mentality and delivery of an adolescent. Ridiculous book. Embarrassed I even downloaded it.

What disappointed you about Pussification?
The Writing is poor. The performance is stilted and lacking any charisma.
The overall theme of masculinity in this is a caricature, but a poorly executed one. The author's idea of manhood is akin to what an eleven year old's idea may be. There is absolutely no nuance to anything he says.
I recommend avoiding this book/audio-book and skipping straight to Amazon to purchase a copy of "Men are Better Than Women" by Dick Masterson. The satire is properly executed and generates many good laughs.
The only positive thing I can say about the author is that he actually 'man'd' up and wrote this book, published it and recorded any audio book. Regardless of any negative criticism I commend him for being a "doer" and I don't begrudge his making of a dollar or two on it.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Going to re-listen to Bert Kreischer's audio book.
How could the performance have been better?
Instead of trying to save money by reading it himself, get a professional voice actor although the material is so poor this could not be saved.
Also the recording quality is "ok" a little bit tinny and some mild sibilance can be heard.
