The Way of the Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire

by David Deida


David Deida wrote this book in 1997, over 20 years ago. However, this book is timeless; it’s highly recommend to every man (and not only).

The biggest message from this book is that there are two energies: feminine and masculine. These energies are very different; they are opposites. There are huge differences between people who have different energies. However, this also causes an attraction. A man with masculine energy will be more attracted to a woman with feminine energy. But it’s also true that a man with feminine energy will be attracted to a woman with masculine energy. This book is mainly for those who have the masculine energy. This book helps to understand how to deal with strong feminine energy.
