Having read the author's 2005 novel "Wild Nights" ("Superior Man" was published 2004), I was expecting this book to be just as full of new age-y gibberish and half-baked ideas. I was therefore quite surprised and impressed to find "Superior Man" to be clear, understandable, and compelling. Deida says we have to move away from the '50s man who was all spine and no heart and from the '90s man who was all heart and no spine to a "superior" man who combines spine and heart in a loving whole.

Like "Wild Nights", this book discusses how sex can be a method to achieve a transcendent mental state. But it's much more than that. The book consists of 51 chapters, none more than 3 or 4 pages long, giving concise, clear instructions on how to improve various aspects of your life, from work to relationships to spirituality. Most of the chapters deal with your attitude and focus in life. The final sections of the book give some instruction on breathing and muscle control (what the author calls "sexual yoga") that you can use to harness and channel your "sexual essence" to achieve a state of ecstasy similar to what you might experience after meditation or fasting or other spiritual disciplines.

Some of the messages may be politically incorrect, but they resonate and sound true. Highly recommended.

This book is a must read for men and the people who love them!

David Deida is extremely insightful in what makes and breaks love and relationships. Applying his teachings will revolutionize your love life, and life in general.

An important part of his work is the play of the Feminine and the Masculine type in passion. When the couple partners express two polarized energies, passion is possible. Deida gives advice how to live your natural essence, that you were born with. If you are a masculine man, there are ways to speak and act to express your masculine essence and attract a feminine woman in your love life - and viceversa.

You'll enjoy the read and the application!
