“The most important source is the burning unstoppable fire to LIVE that underpins everything that a man must think, do and be. You have that fire within you. For many men that fire is behind a door of fear, ridicule and social control.
How do you demolish that door?
Well, Ivan Throne sets out to teach you how in his free book – The Nine Laws of the Dark Triad Man.
As a note, Ivan will be joining me on my show Troublesome Radio
this week tomorrow – so look out for that.
We’ll be discussing The Nine Laws, as well as his other book, Escape From The Damaged Women (I’ll be reading it in the upcoming week) – so here’s my thoughts on The Nine Laws.
THE NINE LAWS STRONG POINTS
The first thing that jumps out at you is a major WOW factor – the graphics, artwork, and formatting of the book is absolutely incredible.
With that being said, you certainly never should judge a book by it’s cover, and once I opened the pages of The Nine Laws, I wasn’t disappointed – the quality of the content inside matched the artwork.
The Nine Laws is a deep read, and I mean it. It’ll make you truly think about your position in the world, the realities of being a man in modern day society, and make you question a lot of things.
At the same time, it does a great job of giving you actionable advice…but does so by not giving direct, actionable advice.
What I mean by this is that a lot of books along these lines are all about whining, complaining, and then a “do it my way or the highway” tone of voice. I’m very impressed by the work Ivan has done in the book because he really encourages you to dig deep – to give your attitude towards life some true, GENUINE thought, face your fears, conquer them, and be the best you can be.
Sometimes, that means you end up being a little bit…dark.
MY TWO FAVORITE LESSONS FROM THE 9 LAWS
The first is…
This one obviously resonates very close to me, as I sit in my new “office” and write this review (that new office being a beautiful main square coffee shop in Lesser Poland).
“No healthy animal willingly seeks the cage.”
“Your acceptance of shackles is your sentence of death.”
Typically, in this corner of the Internet, freedom is typically thought of as being able to live where you want, work for yourself, and bang as many women as you want. But really, freedom isn’t quite that simple. As Ivan puts it, freedom is the ability to choose your PURPOSE in life, which goes far deeper in body and mind that simply banging broads abroad.
The second is…
“Power simply is momentum, it is mass, it is reality in the dark world.”
“For power does not seek you, but must be sought and captured and harnessed. It is female in this respect.”
Ever heard that females are pretty much only good at RECEIVING sex, as opposed to giving?
Notice that when females do have sex, they are effectively RELINQUISHING their power?
They want to be desired, to relinquish that control.
See: 50 Shades of Grey
It’s funny how we can compare sex to…power.
Females chase power, but then resent when they are given it to them. It’s something I’ve preached before on this blog – that you must lead, dominate, and own a woman. Only then is she yours.
Power is the same.
You have to conquer it and use it wisely. If you give too much of it up, you lose an essence of your masculinity.
“You are responsible for the discovery, cultivation, and sustenance of your own power.”
THE NINE LAWS CONCLUSION
I’m never one to shy away from critiquing others works. The bloggers I like to review and work with are held to a high standard – the same standard I try to hold myself to, and that I hope they and you readers hold me to, as well.
With that being said, The Nine Laws is simply one of the best freebie giveaways that I have ever seen on a blog, hands-down.
Don’t get me wrong, the book is definitely not an easy, quick breeze read if you truly want to understand and get the most out of it. It’s not a freebie that you can finish off in a half hour while on the subway. Plan to sit down and really focus on it if you want to get the most out of The Nine Laws.
And that’s a good thing.
The quality is outstanding, it’s beautifully formatted, and it makes you think. I personally think Ivan is insane for giving this away for free, but from what I gather – it’s not going to last forever (up to 1,000 subscribers). So go check out his blog and grab it.
