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.

Great book for a white supremacist

I had high hopes for this book. I've listened to The Way of Men and a couple of the authors interviews and thought he had some interesting ideas. But I had to stop half through this book. To sum it up, the collective, commercial Empire has taken over and everyone is sheeple and are slaves and live in a maternalistic, multicultural society where everyone is valued and so no one is valued. I'm discouraged by social networks that destroy relationships and I was hoping this book would show a path in the direction of creating a tribe to belong to, but it shows how to create a racist/bigoted group instead.
