Previously I wrote an article about the books every man should read focused on dating.

But there are some books I did not include on that list because I didn't see them as dating books, but more like dating psychology books. 

Another way to classify these books is to call them “Red Pill Books”.

They are all books filled with value.

If you are someone that finds modern dating and relationships frustrating, then these books will be valuable for you.

Or maybe you are someone that feels that the world we live in just doesn't make any sense.

If that is you then read these books, and then a lot of things you thought were true will be flipped on their head.

When it comes to red pill books a lot of people have strong reactions. 

So many people go to the extreme and start hating on women. 

That's not the point of this list of books or the authors who wrote these books. 

So read these books with an open mind, and don't run with the emotions which you will feel while reading some of these books.Books for men to read in the context of the Red pill is what this article is about.

Emotions like anger, resentment, and depression are common.

But another common thing people experience reading these books is denial. 

Many will say the ideas in these books are bullshit or just not true. 

Depending on how far gone you are in the modern matrix, these emotions are natural. 

My advice to you is that the truth is what it is, so just accept it and realize that it's not about the book or women.

It's the way you have been conditioned and trained to see the world in a specific way and when you realize you lived a lie it takes time to recover.

Again, don't start hating on women. I love women and think they are great, however, I understand their true nature and dont expect things from them they are not capable of doing.

The resentment towards women after reading these books is based on an unrealistic expectation on women based and conditioning since you opened your eyes for the first time.

So read these books, get the value from them, but remember the person that needs to change is you, not women.

Finally, I arranged the books in the order I think you should read them to get the most from them. So start with the first book and work your way through them.

So let's begin with the best red pill dating psychology books for men.

“Truth is not what you want it to be; it is what it is, and you must bend to its power or live a lie.” —Miyamoto Musashi.

The Rational Male – By Rollo Tomassi.

The Rational Male has been talked about before on this blog, so I'm not going to give you a detailed explanation of the book again. 

That being said the Rational Male is the foundational text when it comes to modern Red Pill Dating/relationship psychology or philosophy. 

This is the book that has opened the eyes of many men around the world.

If you want to read more about this book check out my other post about Rollo Tomassi and the Rational Male.

Richard Cooper

The Unplugged Alpha: The No Bullsh*t Guide To Winning With Women & Life -By Richard Cooper.

The second book I recommend you read after the Rational Male is the Unplugged Alpha by Richard Cooper.

This is a good follow-up book to read after The Rational Male, because it will give you a real-world perspective on how many men get trapped in terrible lives because they are conditioned to live in a false understanding of how the world really works.

And by false I mean the whole game between men and women. 

Cooper talks about how most men have been brainwashed into making women the main focus of their lives and by doing that led to an unhappy and unfulfilled life. 

The Unplugged Alpha lays out a roadmap to take control of your life and some of the dangers you should watch out for when it comes to women and relationships.


The Book of Numbers: Analyzing the ROI on the Pursuit of Women – By Aaron Clarey.

The book of numbers is exactly what the title tells you it is. 

The book starts from the following worldview: “The world economy and its entire, historic economic production has been fueled by one thing and one thing only – sex. “

Keeping the worldview in mind and the price men pay to produce all the positive results in the world, the author looks at another quistion especially in the modern context: Is it worth it to pursue relationships and women? 

This quistion obviously has many variables connected to it. 

The importance of this book is in the way it gives you a cost-benefit analysis of the pursuit of women and relationships in the modern world. 

In the context of the modern divorce rates and failed relationships, this book is a must-read. 

In the modern western world, relationships can be very costly for men when things go bad. 

Understanding the bigger picture is very important, and also to make sure you avoid the bear traps most men step into without knowing it.To get the cold hard numbers read The Book Of Numbers.


The Tactical Guide to Women: How Men Can Manage Risk in Dating and Marriage -By Shawn T. Smith.

The tactical guide to women is another book that will give you a reality check about going into a relationship. 

The author warns about the disastrous results the wrong women can bring into a man's life. 

What makes this book different from the previous book (Book of numbers) is that it gives you a practical plan to make sure you only allow the right women into your life. 

If you don't know how to identify toxic women then The Tactical Guide To Women will tell you all about it.

This is a book on dating strategy from a red-pilled perspective.

The author focuses on building a mindset and lifestyle that will attract women automatically. 

What most men do is put all their focus and attention on chasing women and the author shows why this is the wrong approach.

The author goes into red pill thinking and why some men have a lot of anger when they first take the red pill and see the world for what it really is. 

Alpha Male Strategies on to guide you through the important pillars in life that a man has to focus on to have success with women and life in general.


Dataclysm: Who We Are – By Christian Rudder.

This book is not focused on just women and dating but there are some very important data related to these areas. 

This book is not in the category of The Book of numbers but it has very interesting data about how men and women evaluate each other.

For example, a reality this book brings to the forefront is that women are a lot more demanding than men when it comes to choosing a mate.

This might be obvious to many, but the way this data links up with other data related to women and relationships are the interesting parts. 

To get the big picture data to read Dataclysm.

David Deida

The Way of the Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire – By David Deida.

This book is a legendary book in the dating community but I group this book more in a red pill category. 

It's not a dating technique book, it's more a life philosophy for men.

It focuses on some of the most important issues in men's lives.

Things like women, relationships, sex, and masculinity. 

This book is the most abstract book on this list and some would complain there are no specific steps to follow. 

However, the book is still packed with value and will give you a glimpse into a different way to view women, sex, and life in general.
