Publisher's Summary

Becoming a Barbarian won't teach you how to swing a battle axe or crush your enemies (so that you can see them driven before you and then hear the lamentation of their women).
Becoming a Barbarian is a follow-up to Donovan's cult hit, The Way of Men. Good, modern, civilized Western men today are expected to think like "citizens of the world" - obligated to everyone and no one. Natural, meaningful tribal connections have been substituted with synthetic, disposable consumer identities. Without a sense of who they are and what group they have a place in, modern men are becoming increasingly detached, disoriented, vulnerable, and ever more easily manipulated.
Becoming a Barbarian attacks the emasculated emptiness of life in the modern West and shows men how to think tribally again. It reveals the weaknesses of universalistic thinking, and challenges listeners to become the kind of men who could go all-in and devote their lives to one group of people above all others.
Becoming a Barbarian is about finding a tribe, finding a purpose, and choosing to live the kind of life that undermines the narrative of the Empire.

interesting view on the world

I personally love this book. it's hillarious and speaks a lot of truth that people aren't willing to face up to.
take it with a pinch of salt mind... very aggressively delivered and I believe that is the point.
having a close, tight knit group of people who support each other and work towards common goals or with common values is definately something that helps me in my life and something I'm going to be building plenty more of thanks to this book!

Jack Donovan gets better and better with each book. Great reading by the author in which you can hear his passion for the subject matter.
Excellent follow up to The Way of Men. Both recommended.
