The following review of Lady was originally posted on Roosh V Forum. It is available in eBook, audiobook, and paperback. Click here to learn more.

I really enjoyed going through Lady, however, it’s a bit hard to review comprehensively because it’s absolutely PACKED with good info. No flattery intended, but there were so many little gems tucked away in here that it would be hard to cover them all. I think Roosh or any copywriter will have a lot of fun writing the bullets for this book, e.g. “The two best ways to boost your attractiveness.”

With that said, I’ll cover a few of the topics and points that stuck out to me:

♦ The book starts out with some ideas about how to be a high value woman and live a respectable and attractive life. As mentioned by other posters before, I really like the “What would your grandmother do?” test. It’s really simple and I think this sets the tone for the book in that the rest of the concepts and ideas are pretty down-to-earth and easy to remember.

♦ One idea that especially stuck with me is that if you don’t ‘feed your devil,’ he will eventually weaken and it’ll be easier to listen to your angel. This concept is applicable to a multitude of bad habits. If we want to break a habit, we can be mindful of its existence and allow the negative feelings to fade instead of making them stronger by giving in to them. Roosh lays out a bunch of negative devil feeding behaviours and traps presented by our modern world. The explanations are clear and have memorable names so it’s easy for readers to recognize when they come up. I think a woman would learn a lot about herself by being exposed to these concepts, and a woman who avoided these traps would be a sweet catch, especially if she was good looking.

♦ Roosh gives some great examples to show that men and women have very different roles and are attracted to very different things. He goes to the extent of pointing out that a man would ultimately kill other human beings to protect his family! This is a message people need to hear because people are often acting like the opposite sex that they are attracted to, and then becoming frustrated and confused when it doesn’t work out. Roosh emphasizes that men provide and protect, while women can be awesome at supporting and nurturing.

♦ Building on this, there are some great points about not going to university. Modern women think everyone should go to college, but few have stopped to weigh the pros and cons. There’s some serious value in this section. Roosh doesn’t completely slam university, but instead suggests having children when you’re at your most fertile, and then if you still want to go to university, there’s plenty of time to do that when you’re in your 40s and your children have grown into adults. This is an alternate angle that puts you way ahead of your peers when it comes to having a family. … Not to mention there’s a ton of degeneracy that happens in uni.

♦ The university section was immediately applicable to me as, coincidentally, just a few days after reading it I used a bunch of the points there to talk a girl out of blowing $100,000+ USD of her/her parent’s money on some stupid art school in California. Considering Roosh shot me this book for free, this is a pretty damn good return on investment (for her, anyway)!!!

♥ Around this point, Lady segues into talking about how to get love and commitment from a good man, how to make it all last in a loving and meaningful relationship, and how to avoid get taken for a ride. Roosh gives some rules that will be extremely effective at screening out players. Like, nuclear effective. I know if I didn’t have much interest in a girl beyond sex, I wouldn’t put up with the nonsense! This is a very good thing as there are plenty of sluts in the world, and the supply of marriageable women is sorely lacking. I know I’d be ecstatic if the future mother of my children conducted herself this way!

♥ A concept that women really need to understand is that for every 100 men that are interested in you, probably 90 want a one-night or friends with benefits arrangement, only about 7 would like to be in a monogamous relationship, and maybe only 3 actually want to get married with you.

♥ Roosh lays out the big differences in sex vs commitment. I’m sure we’ve met a lot of women who brag about how they went on a date with this or that rich or famous or athletic guy or had an amazing ex-boyfriend, but in these cases I always think to myself, “Yeah, but where is he now?” A huge source of female pain and unhappiness is trying to lock down someone way out of her league. Props to her for trying, but at least go into it knowing how to act accordingly (which Lady lays out how to do). Most girls are totally clueless.

♥ Somewhere in here was a line that really stuck with me. “Understand that if a man says he’s not ready, what he’s really saying is that he’s not ready for you, EVER, because a man is always ready for his ideal girl, even if sex has yet to take place.” This line startled me because I’ve caught myself saying this to women I don’t see myself having a future with. Roosh, stop giving away our secrets!

♥ A little nugget I like is where Roosh says to try not to view men’s needs as a chore, but, ideally, as something a girl wants to do to express her femininity. I think this is a really useful mindset in that feeling love & taking pride in what you do is only going to make your life easier. Even though it’s idealistic, being happy to please your partner is a much healthier mindset than doing things for them begrudgingly!

♥ There are some smart tips on where to run into successful men who will want to commit to you. It would be pretty pointless to be the ideal girl if no one had the chance to actually meet you! However, this book is actionable steps all the way through.

♥ Lastly, to balance the harsh player-screening rules, Roosh spends a lot of time on how to keep a man interested in ways other than just sex. There’s a lot of great points about the qualities men are looking for that will make or break a relationship. I found myself smiling back on past long-term relationships where my girl did some of these things for me, just as I found myself wishing she hadn’t neglected some of the others. Again, it’s all actionable steps that women can apply right now in their hunt for a husband or to make their current man fall more in love with them.

All in all, I give this book a 9/10 WB (would buy), with the -1 point because any girl who reads this is going to be way harder for anyone to have fast sex with. This is a much needed book as the current culture is absolutely screaming at women to destroy their marriageability. Cheers and I hope to see Lady in the bookstores.

    Roosh doesn’t completely slam university, but instead suggests having children when you’re at your most fertile, and then if you still want to go to university, there’s plenty of time to do that when you’re in your 40s and your children have grown into adults.

    That was my plan. Instead I ended up starting college when I was 16 through a program for high school kids. I was pressured into it from all sides, building up to the point where my stepmother brought me to a “routine” meeting with my homeschool counselor to go over the material I’d covered in the last couple of weeks – except that was all a lie and instead he had filled out all of the program and college admissions paperwork FOR ME, right down to choosing all of the courses for me and scheduling my entrance tests. He did everything he could to get me to sign those forms, short of grabbing my hand and making me do it. They coordinated all of this right before the quarter started so I didn’t have time to gather the courage to back out.

    University rapeochondriacs can just shut up; my entire college education was non-consensual!

    With the exception of a few elective courses (art/drawing, choir/voice) and, surprisingly, math, I hated it. But I got the stupid degree everyone expected me to get and graduated with high honors in spite of deliberately retaining next to none of what I learned.

    The twist is that I’m actually kind of grateful for that, these days. It turns out that homeschooling laws have changed a lot in my state since I was a kid, and having a certain amount of college credit is the only reason I am legally permitted to determine the curriculum I teach to my own children, and to oversee their education without the school district sticking their nose in it.

    I would never recommend that any young woman go away to university for the degree or the “experience” – but in some states, it would seem that obtaining at least some amount of college credit, prior to your children reaching school age, is requisite to simply maintaining and exercising your basic right as a mother to teach them yourself. This will only become more relevant as district-mandated curricula become more degenerate.

    Of course, this can be accomplished by enrolling part-time in a local community college while living at home with your parents, usually at very low or no cost, and can often be done concurrently with/as part of the last couple years of high school.

      The states laws are basically forcing you to conform and be a feminist like them and a failure in life.

      1. Kitty Tantrum February 14, 2019 at 8:22 pm

        Truth. And if they don’t get YOU by dragging YOU through however many years of public/higher “education,” it’s mandatory indoctrination for your children on the grounds that you’re not indoctrinated (errr, “qualified”) enough to raise them yourself.

        Well. The importance of political power to prevent this is very important.

        We must play to win. Because the opposing side is playing to win.

    Come on roosh, we all know that the female who wrote is your mother, who is probably you only female follower

      A man wrote the review. The source is linked at the beginning.

        Please bundle your new book, “Lady”, with your Life’s Work package. I was about to buy the latter and now I want your new book as well. I appreciate all of the content that you have produced on the Web all these years as the co-founder of the the Red Pill movement (founders = Roosh, Roissy, and Rollo Tomassi). You put into words the very thoughts that kept popping into my head (although my ideas were not fully developed). You certainly deserve the few bucks you ask for your published work. Thanks Man.

      2. Roosh February 13, 2019 at 6:24 pm

        I did! When you go to checkout with Lady after it’s released, you will be given an option to add the Life’s Work package.

      3. Wizard Prang February 25, 2019 at 12:09 pm

        I bought your “life’s work” package when “Game” game out.

        And then you go and do this.

        How could you…!

      I am a western woman and I have found a lot of Roosh’s writing very insightful. I look forward to reading my copy of Lady and eventually giving it to my little girl. In my experience women need red pill truth just as much as men. Probably more so. I pray my daughter will never suffer the pain I see all around me.

  3. Big B February 13, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    “What would your great-great grandmother do?” is probably a better question…

    ‘Roosh gives some rules that will be extremely effective at screening out players. Like, nuclear effective. ”

    Color me skeptical of any woman who claims she cannot spot players. I believe they can ID players quickly and easily, and get involved with players because they want to. The “I didn’t realize he was a player” excuse is pure rationalization.

    Pro tip for any inexperienced ladies in this audience – if the dude is tall, good-looking, well built and smooth, the odds of him being a player in this day and age are somewhere north of 90%.

    1. Roosh February 14, 2019 at 8:08 am

      Let’s flip your comment:

      “Color me skeptical of any man who claims he cannot spot sluts. I believe they can ID sluts quickly and easily, and get involved with sluts because they want to. The “I didn’t realize she was a slut” excuse is pure rationalization.”

      How many times have you been tricked by women?

      Very intelligent men get tricked by sluts all the time, and pay a huge price when it comes to divorce. Identifying sluts/players is a skill that you’re not born with.

      1. farmlegend February 14, 2019 at 2:58 pm

        “How many times have you been tricked by women?”

        Being a 62 year old American dude who has divorced three women(I know I know), suffice it to say…yeah, it’s happened. 😉 And it goes beyond sluttiness – if there’s anything that women are actually extremely good at, it’s concealing ugly realities about themselves from the men they’re involved with. After all, humans are unique amongst mammals in that our females have concealed estrus – it’s deception all the way down.

        I hope this book is a big success; realtalk to young women is badly needed in our wretched culture. I plan on reading it and then smuggling it into the hands of a young lady I know, without her femtard mother’s knowledge.

        How do you define a slut in 2019?

        Every women over 20 has been in a few relationshits, had unknown number of flings, ONS, tried double penetration..and maybe she hasn’t even started to explore.

        But lets be positive and 22 yo girl was in one relationship and now what? She would pass for an angel BUT i had a few of these too and with help of dating app and instagram they turned biggest sluts in no time.
        I was with virgins i knew will be promiscuous later on in life, its my opinion that temptation is far too great these days for girls to fantasise about spending life with just one man.

      I do share options on going to university in a way that won’t hurt your ability to connect with a man
