How Single Men Can Remain Powerful

Mgtow Building Wealth and Power: For Single Men Only - Tim Patten

There's a reason why MGTOW Building Wealth and Power is directed to single men, and that's because so many money management books address special audiences, from couples to teens to seniors, but relatively few focus on the special needs of single men nor advocate for their singular interests apart from being coupled.


How does this group differ from others? For one thing, single men tend to wield greater assets and monetary strength because many have no family obligations to plan for. Bachelors thus have unequalled opportunities to gain control over their personal freedoms and futures, and many of these opportunities are integrated with money management approaches unique to this approach (labeled here as 'MGTOW', or Men Going Their Own Way, which is actually a worldwide movement).


Inherent in this philosophy is a perception of many of the toxic premises of marriage and living together that result in patterns of domination and repression which extend into financial and work matters. Men struggling with abusive expectations and financial plans that only serve to further entrap them will find much to admire about this book and its tenants, which blends the MGTOW perspective with specific financial approaches that differ widely from conventional thinking.


MGTOW is not a membership organization; it's a philosophy about a particular way of life that advocates freedom and inclusiveness. It's not one man's ideal, but a rising global phenomenon that embraces a wide range of ideals. Thus, it should be mentioned that just as MGTOW is not a singular idea; so this book is not just about financial planning.


Single male readers receive a combination of lifestyle insights and financial advice that opens with a definition and a history of the relatively new worldwide movement and its basic philosophy. It then reviews the social issues revolving around traditional ideas of masculinity, patriarchy, and paradoxes in traditional relationships.


Later chapters move from social consciousness and philosophical examination to the nuts and bolts of financial planning. Be advised: just as the concepts discussed are not linear, so the presentation approaches change. Readers might not expect a fictional case history in 'The Girl Who Cried Rape' in a financial planning primer, for example, and so men should be flexible and prepared for changes in tone and approach as MGTOW Building Wealth and Power provides its hard-hitting information through diverse approaches which readers can readily absorb and understand.


From the high costs of codependence and addiction to learning when to exit an investment, how to handle dating and challenges to self-sufficiency, and how to manage not just money but life, this wide-reaching coverage pairs case history examples with keys to moving beyond the perception that males are workhorses destined to live a life of labor.


Any young man who wants to achieve financial security and realize dreams of travel, self-fulfillment and pursuing independence will find much to like about and reflect upon in MGTOW Building Wealth and Power.
