I have been a follower of Alan's for at least 6 years. I knew I was not quite a Total Alpha Male. I don't feel comfortable with people at first. I know that part about myself.
But I still think this book should be read by everyone. Simple advice but palatable for everyone. It makes sense how he describes the general trend of interactions between men and women. It's changing. I see it myself. Alan just puts it more simply and succintly.
Even though I have followed Alan a long time, I noticed a few gold nuggets in this as well. Him narrating this just puts brings the points home harder.

This is Alan Roger Currie’s most comprehensive audiobook yet. I would recommend that if the gals listen to just one audiobook of Alan’s, this should be the one they listen to. For the guys, I think this should be the first or second audiobook that they listen to. I happen to be one of Alan’s few female listeners who has listened to and reviewed each of his four audiobooks, and this one doesn’t disappoint. This audiobook will make listeners better understand why Alan wrote his other books, Mode One, The Possibility of Sex, and Oooooh … Say it again.
In this audiobook, Alan expresses that he believes marriage simply does not have the same appeal for men that it did prior to 1960. If not worldwide, at least in the United States. Alan believes there are just way too many dishonest and adulterous men in the world, and even many more dishonest, manipulative, and adulterous women in the world. Alan doesn’t so much blame men or women, but rather he places the blame squarely on the flawed concept of obligatory monogamy and marriage itself. Alan believes that natural, organic, completely voluntary monogamy works out better for couples than forced or obligatory monogamy.
Also, Alan bluntly dispels the myth that all gals are only looking to connect with polite gentlemen, and go out of their way to avoid interactions with the bad boys and womanizing cads. Alan refers to the polite gentlemen as ‘beta males’ and the womanizing cads as ‘alpha males.’ I can say as a woman that most women don’t want a bad boy as a husband or steady partner, but for a casual shagging here and there, many of us women love the aggressive, masculine, and extremely dominant and kinky nature of the bad boy types.
I feel that the gals who listen to this audiobook are going to be left with mixed feelings, particularly if they aspire to be married someday. Some gals will learn new things from this audiobook about the overall mentality of men and their myriad of egotistical insecurities, while other ladies will criticize some of Alan’s strong opinions about women’s manipulative and materialistic behavior and his seemingly strong disdain for marriage, monogamy, and platonic friendships between men and women. I think all of the guys who listen to this audiobook will gain a better understanding about how some women operate and play games with men. Personally, I think this is Alan’s best audiobook for both the guys and the gals to listen to and learn from.

The main thing I got from this book is that you don't have to subscribe to the normal, straight, boring, vanilla life-script of: college, career, marriage, children. As women gain more rights, they are also gaining more power, which I've only ever seen as a good thing. Black people have gained rights too. As an ex-Knight (in shining armour) type, I was always at the defence of women, happy to advocate feminist views. I was the proverbial Captain Save a Howe, rescuing women from patriarchal alpha males that had no respect for women. However, I was very naive in my beliefs about women and Alan Roger Currie (ARC) in this book sets the record straight and brings home some hard truths which unfortunately I had to learn the hard way... through bitter-sweet experience. ARC predicts that there will be more and more men like us, waking up from the delusion that being a family orientated and faithful provider, being a loyal monogamous and dutiful husband, putting his wife and children first and being the best man you could possibly be, will end up in generous lavishing of gratitude and appreciation from our partners and spouses. Not so. I believed I was being good man, but I realise now that this was in many ways perceived as weak. Nice guys finish last while the strong confident no BS types of guys referred to as Alpha Males are the ones that are desired to fulfil most women's physical needs and fantasies. Thus the Beta Male Revolution is born. Men that have played by the rules of society, attempting to be great men in their families and communities, aiming to do right by their women and uphold the moral fabric of modern civilisation are in for a rude awakening. The author warns that many beta males are angry, but this can be directed in a good way. Alpha Males are happy with the way things are as they will always be desired and in high demand by women. Personally, I realised that whenever I'm in the Caribbean I feel alpha, I'm perceived as alpha and I live an envious lifestyle that the first-world beta version of me can only dream of when I touch-down back home. By transitioning to alpha males in our own societies and communities, many beta-trait males no longer have to be angry, bitter, confused and frustrated. With the support, mentoring and coaching of alpha male leaders such as Alan Roger Currie, all males with a strong desire for self-improvement and mastery can transition, graduate and upgrade to the type of authentic alpha males that satisfy women's psychological and physical desires as well as, importantly, their own.

There were many great insights in this audiobook about what is going on behind the scenes in interpersonal relationships. Myself being someone who grew up as a beta male and used self-improvement to acquire many alpha traits, I can definitely relate to the dramatic shift in the way I saw women and the way they responded to me after I started to change my mindset.
The historical playthrough of the change in dynamics over time was very educational, and the description of causes of seemingly "out of nowhere" cheating that so often occurs provided a repair of my reality alarm clock and helped me to further wake up.
Having bought and listened to all of the previous Alan Roger Currie audiobooks, this one is arguably the most vital must-listen to for people of all backgrounds, young and old, before they naively jumping into a marriage or long term relationship.
One very minor criticism is that I would have liked there to be more anecdotes from third parties splashed in like what was present in "mode one" , as I feel it would have helped validate some topics further like it did there. (e.g like when the woman admitted how she secretly loves being approached mode one style but outwardly acts otherwise).
