all philosophy is essentially subjective, although to recontextualize Epicureanism and Objectivism into some po-mo mish-mash is definitely objectively lame for real students of philosophy.
If I were still in high school I would probably believe what this guy is saying. It's easy to use history and scientific terminology to persuade one's audience. The author is saying that pleasure is the purpose of life. If it were, we would all be procrastinating, unhealthy (because human beings are genetically sweet-tooths), etc. Not even worth $2.99.
This book is more about how to be a male than an Alpha male.
It actually contains more Beta male recommendations than Alpha male recommendations.
It attempts to use historical figures to demonstrate Alpha male characteristics.
If you are interested in historical figures that us how to amass power than buy "The 48 Laws of Power" by Robert Greene
If you are interested in how to behave as an Alpha male in order to be successful with the opposite gender then start with "The Game" by Neil Strauss then Athol Kay's Primer.
This book has been a waste of time and money.
