The Book of Numbers: Analyzing the ROI on the Pursuit of Women

The world economy and it’s entire, historic economic production has been fueled by one thing and one thing only – sex. Specifically, men’s desire to have sex with young and beautiful females. It’s not specifically female youth and beauty per se, as much as it is the fertility these things signal. But make no mistake about, female youth and beauty has powered the world econ ...more

Aaron Clarey is my new author crush. I've been binge reading and combining with watching some of his YouTube content.

As an older guy, twice married, with a "surprise" child I can verify the numbers Aaron has calculated. This book is a must read, as is the rest of Aaron's body of work.

The cold hard truth of the numbers will burst the bubble of many people's view of how the world works. Disney and all the other indoctrination sources paint a very rosy picture of how the world should work, and delu

The Clarity Men Need About Women

This book gives a real hard look at the reality men face when it comes to women in today’s modern day.
Awesome read, and tangible look at what a man should do

This is a must ASAP read for men out there because in reality I knew a lot of what was mentioned but I thought it was a little dark with out knowing the numbers. Knowing the numbers now the situation is pitch black. I am not even joking about it either. I knew dating Apps were a waste of time and women used them as a attention and validation seeking. When I learned the average time men spend on dating Apps and so forth the ROI is woah so low. I already knew you had probably hundreds of simps mes ...more

This is a book written for men by the best and most lovable a-hole in the world, Aaron Clarey. If I could chose to sip on a whisky and smoke a cigar with anyone right now, it'd be him. And if you do read this book, please read it to the last chapter, because just like in the Greek myth of Pandora's box, this last chapter is the 'hope' that could be stuck in the box when humanity finally plugged it. This last chapter will tell you why regardless of how hopeless the possibility of meeting an engag ...more

Too much truth in this book. Another MGTOW man, speaking the hard truths about modern women. We men get nothing from modern women. All men need to focus on ourselves, focus on excellence not women. The ROI of modern women, we men get nothing from modern women. Applying economics or mathematics or numbers to the dating market, we men pay with our entire life, in return we get nothing, 0% return. Without a woman in my life, I have everything, my life, my future is limitless. Travel, lifting weight ...more

Harsh and realistic

Good essay covering the statistics of finding a worthy woman while giving advice on self improvement. Quick and easy read

Excellent read great narration

The crux is very clear and absolute. This logical approach to the most deceptive phenomenon is fantastic. I would recommend you to give it shot.

Very thorough

A very thorough analysis on the dating prospects for the average American man pursuing American women, and likely throughout the Western world today let alone the future. More importantly, despite the bleak prospects, the solution is very clearly outlined, whether you end up with "The One" or not.

Honestly wasn't going to read it because I know the reality and the answer; only started to pass the time. But even with the on the ground experience and research behind me, it was a worth

Intriguing and Insightful (even though it is a short book that can be read in a day)

He correctly identifies how Feminism and the Democratic party have hurt the modern woman by lying to them and telling them what they want to hear.

Life is far easier for women from 14 to 29. Women are not in a competition with men but with other women for the best men. During this time women in this youthful category have an easy time gaining the attention of high value men. However after 29, these women now must

Though the author acknowledges that the data used is questionable and imprecise, he proceeds to make very specific estimates using said data. I think the book would have been more convincing if it had stuck with larger ballpark ranges or guesstimates. That said, I found the idea of framing the pursuit of women in terms of ROI to be quite valuable. Most of us don't consider the massive amount of resources that we put into the pursuit of women, so it was enlightening to be pushed to think this way ...more

Good to have stats behind the reality

Most of these things you can see in action around you from family, friends and work mates. It is not hidden but it seems for some are blinded by the myth or fairlytale only to turn into a horror movie.
Rather spend the time, money and effort on you improving and exploring having the best lifestyle that you want for your self as that is the most important person.

You will appreciate the effort the author makes for the concept in this book.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I cant help but feel that the empirical portion of this book was stained with what is an obvious sociopolitical bias that the author puts readily on display. I think what he has to say and has researched is important. However once he interjects his colorful opinions rather than letting the data he gathered speak more for itself, i feel that i am being convinced or persuaded int

From the first few pages after the author openly confessed his looking down on social science research I realized that this will be a stiff book of statistics and half baked conclusions.

According to the author, in addition to sex makes the world go round, women spoiled by the modern internet and media brain washing a regular Joe is better saving his money and enjoy his life instead of spending it on women and chasing a mirage of a happy marriage.

I agree that the relationship dynamics between the

I liked and disliked the book.

1. I liked the suggestion for pursuing excellence. Clear definition of all the 7 actions.

2. I don't agree with assumption that only passing the criteria of deal breakers will lead to successful marriage. The big portion of deal breaker population leads to successful relationship. The world is changing so the roles are changing. With new roles done by both man and woman, the success will be far higher than what is shown. The very definition of success has to be looke

A superficial and biased take on relationships and their cost.
Most of the points made are really arguable and clearly there to give the impression that looking for a partner is nothing more than a loss of money, with arbitrary deal breakers like "she has too many tatoos!" or "she picked a non-stem major!".
It's interesting for the underlying theme of analyzing relationships via the lens of economy, but not much more than that.

At first this book's central point seems cynical and petulant, but by the end it turns all that into an inspiring, positive call to action. Every man should read this, and most women would probably benefit as well. ...more
This book is easily 5 or 0 star.
I'm going to give it a 5 because I couldn't let go of it.
It was fun, eye opening and radically changes the way you think about how we are plugged into thinking that everything will be ok and happy ending is one step away. BUUUUUUUUUT......

Worth reading it, and worth the 7 dollar ( digital version) ."The unplugged alpha" (Richard cooper) it's a better book.

“This massive, nearly incomprehensible economic miracle you are witnessing outside your window is due to one group of people and one group of people only – men.  And it was a transaction (the most important and original economic transaction) that incentivized men to make and build nearly everything on the planet - sex for resources.  Men build things, women give them sex.  Men produce things, women give them children.  Men accrue wealth and resources, women continue their genetic line.  Sex (or more Darwinistically speaking, progeny) is what gets men out of bed in the morning, off to school, into rush hour, off to the office, off to the factory, off to night school, off to war, or off to the lab to make money so that they might someday attract girls.  If there was no sex, if there were no women, if there was no female youth and beauty, men would still be living in caves, only mustering their resources to perhaps create beer and poker to bide the time.  Alas, the ONLY reason you have planes, trains, and automobiles, the only reason an economy exists, the only reason anything outside the sky exists, is because men built it.  And men built it in exchange for sex.” 1 likes
