UNPLUGGED – What Our Fathers Did not Tell Us

As children, we learnt from Disney that if you treat her like a queen, she will treat you like a King. We were also taught that a man should go on one knee while proposing to a woman because women are the prize. We were also taught that we should listen to our wives and be gentlemen because women like nice boys they can trust and not bad boys who weren’t faithful. Men have tested these ideas, and thousands of men have lived to share their experiences and results. This book consolidates what men have learnt about intergender dynamics: what works and what does not work.

Today, marriage rates are declining. Forty per cent of single black women in the US are single mothers who prioritize getting babies over getting in a stable long-term commitment, aka marriage. Why do many young girls today prefer becoming side chicks to high-value men rather than settling in marriage with an average man?

In 2019, the American Psychological Association labelled traditional masculinity as harmful. But if so, why are women striving to be like men? What is the impact of masculine females on relationships? Why are women being told to “act like a lady and think like a man” if masculinity is harmful?

What attracts women to men, and how can men maintain that attachment? In the age of social media, where women get free attention and validation from hundreds of men, how do men in long term relationships deal with partners who feel they have so many options?

Women file for divorce 70-80% of the time in the western world. How can men navigate marriage with modern women incentivized to divorce by divorce laws? Why did the Greeks equate the feminine with chaos, represented as the goddess Pandora? Why are most oracles in epics female, and why did God tell Adam that his first sin was listening to Eve?

On average, men’s handgrip strength, testosterone levels, and overall masculinity is declining, while women’s enrolment rates in universities have outstripped those of men. Among trans adults, the majority are men who say they were born female. Why? Why is masculinity on the decline?

In 2021, before a whole school assembly at Brauer College in Victoria, Australia, the male students were all told to stand up, turn to a girl in their class and say sorry. Yet they had done nothing wrong. Based on Census Bureau historical data and Morgan Stanley forecasts, 45% of prime working-age women (ages 25-44) will be single by 2030—the largest share in history—up from 41% in 2018.

This book traces the origin of the steady decline of the man’s role in the family. It also seeks to help men understand female nature, revitalize masculinity and build full-stack men who can navigate relationships while providing leadership in an increasingly gynocentric world that has largely silenced men.
This book will plug you from comforting lies to cold hard truths.

    If you are writing about empowering men, please go ahead and do so. Your manifesto, or whatever it is you wanna call it, should not be 100% dwelling on women. Whoever spends their dime purchasing this will be greatly disappointed.

    Quite an eye opener. Definitely worth reading and not only because I’m a Man. Women should read and learn a thing or two.

    Jane Mumbi Odonne

    I believe a book about men should be about men. Not about bashing women. Another attempt to become famous by abusing women.

    This is the absolute guide to masculinity. You need this to be a full stack man

    James Moriasi

    Every Kenyan man must read this. Our fathers never prepared us for some of the realities we face today as men but this book is a complete guide. It empowers you to be a man in this highly feminized world.

  20. 5 out of 5

    Ja Loka

    This book will save many men. Many many men. Feminists will hate it because it opens the eyes of men making them less vulnerable to their manipulations and the femicentric world order. It takes the man back to his basics.

    In a society where masculinity is slowly fading, this book is on a rescue mission. Women want masculine men and the authorhas tried his best to take our men back to track. Excellent read.A woman who reads this book will never make a mistake when choosing men

    Caroline Wesonga

    I know the target audience is men but women will greatly benefit from reading this book as it will help them to tell the kind of men that are marriageable and those to keep away from. It can also help you make your man, a man of value, a full stack man. Excellent read

    Janet Banda

    I have read this book twice and while there are some parts I dont agree with as they contain gender stereotypes and subjective bias, I am attracted to the authors mastery of the English language and intersexual dynamics. In addition, the book has helped me undersrand some aspects of woman nature I was not aware of, and I also have a better understanding of men courtesy of the book. This is an A-class author

  27. 5 out of 5

    Christine Waithera

    While the book supports partriachy and seems to discourage gender equality, the author has done an excellent job of addressing the declining masculinity in the modern society and csllimg out men to reclaim their lost glory. I like the way the way the author calls out behaviours that men think are masculine but are not, like alcoholism, gambling, and infidelity. I like the way the author encourages men to focus on creating value and working on themselves, because I believe the modern society is failing because of shortage of value creating men. It is an excellent read, and it will make the society better by helping men reclaim their lost glory

  28. 5 out of 5

    Bernice Akinyi

    I now understand men better courtesy of this book. If you dont want a low value man in your life as a woman, read this book and you will understand how to pair bond with men of substance: Excellent read

    Ruth Mutoni

    The real life anecdotes and stories spice up the whole work. Great work of Kenyan authorship

  30. 5 out of 5

    Emma Wayua

    While the author seemingly encourages traditional patriarchy and submission of women, which I disagree with, he does an excellent job of addressing the weaknesses of the modern man. Days when men were men and gone and the author acknowledges that the society is full of males who can’t man the hell up. Indeed, only 20 percent of males are men, only a few can take up the burden of performance in a masculine way. One thing I disagree with the writer is on the issue of alpha male. Alphas are born not made. Trying to make an alpha out of a beta and sigmas will have disastrous consequences of betas trying to pretend to be alphas. Let betas remain betas and suffer the consequences.

    Faith Musimbi

    The writer fully understands male and female nature and uses it to write a compelling masterpiece on intersexual dynamics. Contains some subjective bias against women but also admonishes weak men and provides them with an actionable plan of becoming a full stack man

    Can the author make an audiobook version of this masterpiece? Some points in this book would be more impactful when listened to yhan when read. Great work.

    The quality of writing is dope. Those in love with linguistics, great English, and high level mastery of writing skills will fall in love with this book

    Kilemi M’Mugwika

    Our fathers did not teach us the lessons explored in this book. They could not have foreseen the issues the modern man has to contend with. Full blown hypergamy, femicentric social order with its corrosive emasculation, etc. Arm a young man with a copy of this book as a birthday present and you will have shaped his future more than any other present can do

    Dr. Margaret Wanjiku

    I read the first few reviews and decided to get the book to find out what might have infuriated my fellow women that much. After a week of reading, I can authoritatively state that none of those who have given one star reviews have read the book. Their comments do not reflect the contents of the book. There is nowhere in this book where the author promotes femicide or abuse of women as some reviewers indicate. Well, the author is seemingly biased against women, accussing them of stuff such as hypergamy, monkey-branching, and cuckoldry, however, he does not whatsoever advocate violence against women as alleged by some charlatans who seemingly have not read the book. It is unfortunate that some people would prejudiciously negatively review something they have not read just because they feel it attacks their toxic brand of feminism. Shame on the first nine female reviewers. It seems you ganged up to review something you have not read. Once again, shame on you!

    This should be the official set book for the mens conference. Every man must read this and learn how to
    1. Focus on value creation not chasing women, love, and suchlike nonsense. You will learn that women chase value, so if you want women, be a man of value.
    2. Avoid traps that women set which have sent many men crashing down.
    3. Understand how modern institution such as the church and the media emasculate men and how them have created a highly feminized society. Men must learn how to stay clear of the traps set by this institutions and remain focused
    4. Understand the female nature. Once you understand the female psychology, you will never be a victim of their schemes, hypergamy, capitalistic consumerism, and cuckoldry.
    5. Avoid anything that does not make you a man of substance
    Get a copy and read this wonderful masterpiece. Its the ultimate manmaker

    My attention to this book was captured by some social media complaints by some women accusing the author of misogyny. After reading the first few reviews on this site, I decided to get a copy so that I can jump into the bandwagon of bashing the writer, albeit with evidence. However, after reading the book, I found no reason because contrary to the position of the few complainants, this book is a strong social commentary. It describes the society as it is; people as they are. You see, the target audience is male and you dont expect the writer to massage feminism, femininity, and femicentric ideals when talking to men. Just like many women, I am also angry with the writers attempts to inferiorate and demean women by casting then as the main source of emasculation and the biggest source of mans problems, which is not the case. But I ignore what the writer has said about women and focus on what the book attemps to do to our men. Any woman can tell you what it means to be with a weak man. Have you ever been in a relationship where you feel like you are two women in the house? Most parts of the book is trying to address that problem. Its trying to save the society from weak men; save women from the ignominy of having weak men around them. We may be angry with what the writer is saying about women but I appreciate the books effort to remodel our men. Get your man this book and you will thank me later.

    Unplugged was brought to my attention by a myriad of controversial sentiments from my circle. I wanted to read it for myself, own my views. While I may not agree with some aspects,but my people say ‘Mgala muue haki yake mpe’. The book is very factual but you must read it objectively as a woman as the target audience is clearly stated as male. A must have for men and a good read for women. I particularly appreciate the author’s attempts to restore masculinity in society. Easily passes as the male’s hand book.
    Good Job! Looking forward to more like this.

    This is the intellectual version of the advice Amerix and Kibe has been giving men. The author is moderate in that he avoid extreme gender bashing and digital hooliganism associated with the two. He takes men through an intellectual trip to masculinity, using evidential anecdotes that relate to some of the experiences men are going through today, which the advice we got from our fathers cannot solve. I like this intellectual brand of masculine content.

  47. 5 out of 5

    Doris Akinyi

    I dont expect a male writer to exercise gender neutrality so I ignored the subjective treatment of women in some chapters and focused on what this book means for me as a woman interested in a high value man, a man of substance. I now understand why women end up with suboptimal men; prioritizing nonsensical traits when looking for a man. The book will help women understand men more, learn who a high value man is and go for them and who suboptimal men are and avoid them.

    Alpha Wasike

    Ten things I have learnt from this book
    1. Our fathers and grandfathers never foresaw the modern marriage, family, dating, and relationships dynamics and could not have prepared men to face the highly volatile and uncertain social landscape. Men must learn from their experiences and those of their peers.
    2. Women are naturally hypergamous, its their nature and there is nothing much men can do about it. As a man, if you want hypergamy to work for you!, create value. Be the man women would leave their men for.
    3. A man must provide more than 60 percent of the household budget. If provision for wife and husband is 50-50, there are two equal men in that house. If she provides more than 50 percent, she is the man of the house, and soon!, disrespect will creep in.
    5. Women love men because of what they are not who they are. You are the most faithful person in the world but have nothing? She will leave you for a man who cheats on her with a thousand bitches as long as he can provide. Therefore, love will exist as long as a man has value. Your faithfulness doesn’t count if you cant meet her economic needs.
    6. Women always have a plan B. There is a man somewhere on the bench waiting to come onfield as a substitute should things go south in your relationship/marriage.
    7. Widows outlive widowers because men dont know how to move on.
    8. Single mothers are a no-go zone especially if the baby daddy is alive. The man who made her a mother first will alwayls be the number one regardless of how bad the fall out was. Watagulanaaaa.
    9. The value of a man increases as they age and that of a woman goes down as they age. The girls you could not attract when you were 21 and broke will come looking for you when you are 30 and riding high economically. But their sex market value will have gone down and you will not look at them twice, you will go for the 23 year olds with higher sex market value. That is why women as they age attract broke younger men in their early 20s because they have money but low sex market value, and men as they age and gain high sex market vakue because of higher income attract younger women with high sex market value.
    10. Men must create value to survive in the modern dating and marriage landscape. You looks, height, abs and fidelity count for nothing if your are not financially stable especially past 25.

    Maggie Wakesho

    I learnt about this book when someone sent its nuria link to our girls-only whatsapp group and asked us to give it a one-star rating as it promotes gender violence and misogyny. I read the authorial introduction above and I was taken aback by its gender lopsidedness. However I decided to do a review after reading the whole book so that I can accompany the one star rating with a comprehensive vitriolic review that will teach the author a lesson. I finished reading the book an hour ago, and I dont see any reason I should give it a one star rating. I like this book because by ranting about women, femininity, hypergamy and all those anti- feminine terminologies used, the author seems to inadvertently acknowledge that women have become so poweful in the modern world that the advice our fathers gave men to tame and subjugate their women no longer works. The author acknowledges that modern men have to go outside the box to deal with the overpowering strength of the modern woman. The writer acknowledges that women have come from three goals down and are now leading the match 5-3 deep into the second half and men must desperately look for a three goal comeback to win this game. I wish I could give it a six star rating because the whole book inadvertently recognizes the power of the woman that has created a new world older that cannot be dismantled using the advice that patriachy traditionally gave men. Thumbs up author for acknowleding that masculinity is losing the match after establishing a comfortable 3-0 lead by half time.

    Gone are the days when men were men. The author is trying to bring masculinity back to the society. I believe there are many other things that have led to a decline in masculinity that have not been explored, with the writer only focusing on the role of women in that decline. Get outside the box and see the bigger picture, Mr Aliet

    Why the hell are women panicking about this book? Can’t you see it has been written in response to how we have disrupted the status quo, forcing men to go back to the drawing board? This book is an indirect celebration of feminine disruption of patriachy. When you see Amerix, Kibe, Nyanchwani, Lubanga, Aliet, Njoka and their ilk ranting and giving advice to their people they are trying to save men from the disruption we have caused. Don’t hate on them. When you see them posting, celebrate the power of women that triggers such responses.

    One of the dimensions in the Geert Hofstedes cultural analysis framework is masculinity versus femininity. Organisations that operate in a high masculinity cultural environment perform better than those in highly feminine environment. The worlds fastest growing economies today are in high masculinity cultures such as China and India. Highly feminine economies such as those in the EU are losing their place to China, India and other oriental economies. A masculine cultural environment prioritizes ambition, productivity, performance and growth, according to Geert Hofstede. Therefore, this book will go beyond restoring masculinity to our society and create a highly masculine cultural environment which is vital for organisational and national economic growth.

    The happiest women in this world are highly feminine women, those who don’t attempt to become men,those who do what a woman must do in natural settings. The happiest men in this world are the most masculine ones, those take their rightful place in the family and society and perform the natural roles of a man. Masculinity is declining because men have become feminine, men, as the author has stated several times in the book, have refused to live up to the burden of performance. Masculinity cannot thrive in a culture where men are living off women, where men, expected to provife are increasingly becoming couch potatoes where men are spending hours and days doing things that do not add value to their lives and families. Masculinity is all about value creation. Continue driving that message into the heads of some of these young men living off women; into the heads of men lost in alcoholism, porn, gambling, endless sherehes and immorality because those are the major eaters of masculinity. Good job Mr. Aliet.

    The decline in masculinity is responsible for

    1. High incidence of single motherhood
    2. High divorce rates
    3. High juvenile deliquency rates
    4. High abortion rates
    5. Chronic alcoholism in the society
    6. Chronic social instability
    7. Corruption and mismanagement
    8. High suicide and homicide rates
    9. Get rich quick mentality
    10. Reduced national productivity.

    I am glad someone has made an effort to bring masculinity back. We need more such book. Feminists will disagree but I maintain, a low masculine society is chaotic because it defies nature.

    Someone sent us here to rate the book badly, some of use ended up buying the book. In life you need both haters and fans. Anyway, I disagree with those who read misogyny in this book. The brand of men this author wants to create is what we women of substance want. I am buying my boyfriend a copy of this book for his birthday (I will not give him mine) so that he can know the kind of man I want. Great book!

    I have given a 4 star review in appreciation of the quality of writing, however I strongly disagree with the subjective treatment of the modern woman. Men can find their way up again without demeaning women, treating women as a problem that needs to be solved, and without using women as a scapegoat after veering off the masculinity course. Despite the controversial position taken by the writer, this is a high quality work and only a brainless idiot would give it a one star review.

    Phoebe, don’t compare Aliet with Paulo Coelho. An advanced literary critic will tell you Coelho is very shallow. I have read five of Aliets books before Unplugged and I can confirm he is deeper than Coelho. Get a book called Levant Church, read it and tell me what you think.

    Its a shame that I first heard about this book from a Morrocan expatriate who is my supervisor at work and has been quoting excerpts from this book while trying to describe to discuss the weird stuff he sees from Kenyan men. I had to get a copy, and…It was a 4 figure well spent. The book provokes thoughts, opens eyes, and make a rallying call that will set Kenyan men back on the right track.

    Someone above said women have disrupted the status quo? What a dry joke! A lion decides to sleep and Zebras think they now run the jungle? This book is waking up the sleeping lion, and it shall roar again very soon. Its back to the basics

    This writer should have a You Tube channel. He can easily fill the void Kevin Samuel left. While we already have Kibe, we need an intellectual and a more rational version too. Great book. Well thought out and evidemce-based content. A-Star Writer.

    I wonder why men are expected to perform their Biblical role of provision without fail but the women they provide for refuse to play their role of respecting and submitting to their man. Marriages fail when men cant provide because no woman will respect men who cant provide. They also fail when women fail to respect men who provide for them. If you are man and cant provide, dont get married or get out of that marriage if she is providing and you are not. If you are a woman and cannot submit or respect and submit to a man who provides, you have no business getting married or staying in the marriage. Marriages can only thrive in natural and biblical order of male provision and female submission, and I believe that is the point this author is trying to pass across.

    I borrowed someones copy on wednesday and I have now finished reading. My only reward to this excellent writer would be buying a copy and gift it to someone else. I will actually buy two copies. Keep Writing Sir. This is the kind of content weve been lacking. You exactly know what we want.

    Bought this book after a review by that Nyamachwani guy of Memos on Facebook. This is exactly what I needed. After a series of misteps, mistakes, and miscalculations in life, I was on the verge of giving up. However, I now believe I can start allover again and make the right choices, inspired by this book

    I am a young lecturer in my late 20s, I witnessed and still witnessing complicated intersexual dynamics in campuses with young men mostly on the receiving end. After reading this book, I believe its important we form boys clubs in our tertiary institutions to teach young men how to be men of value, men of substance, help them avoid older generations in their 30s and 40s have been making. As someone who interacts daily with men aged between 18 and 25, I can tell you these people are highly feminine and masculinity will on its deathbed by the time these people get to 35-40, we must do something to rescue the generation and this book would be an important resource. How I wish this author and like minded people can visit campuses and talk to young men because he is undoubtedly an authority in matters masculinity

    This book was the subject of discussion on our chamaa today, four out of the 25 women, including me have read it. I know a few will get copies in the coming week due to eargerness to read the controversial stuff we were disagreeing about. The discussion started with recent confesion by size 8 about how submission saved her marriage, thats when someone brought this book into the context. I am of the unpopular opinion that we need patriachal order back, we need strong men back, in agreement with the author, something two thirds of the women in the group disagree with. I may disagree with the authors tendency to blame women for some of the problems men are experiencing because I fully believe men are 100 percent to blame for declining masculinity, however, I believe low masculinity is a threat to social stability, its a threat to both men and women. Its hard for women to be women when men cannot play their roles. I believe the biggest source of stress among women today is low declined masculinity not patriachy. Decline in masculinity produces deadbeats, gigolos, fuckboys, house-husbands and all sorts of low value men. We need highly masculine men back. Thats not negotiable! Where are real men??

    If a woman calls you a real man or a gentleman, you have been emasculated, you have been reduced to the feminine version of a man. Read this book and discover who a real man is.

    Ile ukweli iko kwa hii book! Wacha tu. Almost all mistakes I have made as a man have been outlined here. Fortunately, the author has provided an action plan of getting out of the mess and I am on my way to experience a new lease of life. I will always cite this book as my turning point in life. What a book!

    I bought this book out of peer pressure, I didnt even read it at first, then after too much noise about it on social media, I decided to read. Today, I had to take a day off work to complete reading as I found it hard to put it down. One thing, this writer did his research well, understood what exactly is and gave us a comprehensive solution. I just wish I had read this book 5 years ago, but its never too late. Thumps up Jacob.

    This is one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life. The examples are relatable and the language simple to understand. The author has done thorough research through literature and first-hand observation. And what strikes me is that these examples are things that are happening right in our lives and we know a person or two who have undergone the examples provided, if not us. This book elicits emotions from women who have not even read it and in deed it confirms the author’s stand on women being emotional as a survival instinct. The truths and evidence in here are not feminist-friendly and tough pills to swallow, but speak sense and open the lid to matters as they are currently. This book is a masterpiece and equips men with the truth of intersexual dynamics and slaps the foolishness out of our faces. I can go on and on but this is a book that should be well preserved and passed from one generation of men to another.

    Have you ever read a book that directly talks to you? As in ”
    1. This is who you are
    2. Here are examples of who you are and consequences
    3. This is why you should not be who you are
    4. This is who you should be
    This book has exactly done that to me
    We talk of transformational leadersship, well this one is transformational readership.

    I borrowed my mother’s copy and read. Now, this saturday I am going out on a first date with a man I met recently, and I have a plan…get him a brand new copy of this book. It will give a perfect picture of what I look for in men. What a real man should be has been deeply and comprehensively captured by this outstanding author.

    The best thing men can do is to be as masculine as possible. In a society full of masculine men, women will automatically go back to femininity. Women are becoming masculine or exhibiting masculine traits and behaviors to fill a void left by men as they oscilate towards femininity. The onus is on men to be as masculine as possible and there will be no space or reason for female expression of femininity.

    Kirk Patrick Ngari

    The author has masterfully crafted a masterpiece that identifies a problem, explores its foundations and origins, analyses its manifestations using evidence observational and popular literature data, uses allusions to a wide range of sources such as religion and ancient greek mythology and literature to clarify concepts, and importantly provides the way forward for men. In simple term, its like a doctor who identifies a condition, provides a comprehensive diagnosis complete with history of the condition, symptoms and comorbidities, and then provides an evidence-based treatment plan. I really enjoyed reading this book

    As a feminist (non-toxic) I STRONGLY disagree with the author on many issues BUT I celebrate the international standards of authorship achieved by this book. At one point while reading the book I got angry especially at the demeaning labelling of women BUT the HIGH QUALITY everything else in the book would massage the anger away. Aliet, you are INTERNATIONAL!

    Its a 5 star rating for me! onto unrelated stuff, someone has mentioned Size 8 and submission in one of the reviews. If a woman has to submit to a man, it has to be a masculine man, a strong man. Size 8 submitted to a man with ear rings?What a waste of submission? Makosaaaa!

    We say men are dogs, men are cheats, men are players bla bla bla, but I would prefer the dog version of a man than the weak version. A weak man is the scum of the earth; the worst human beings there shall ever be. There should be no place for weak men in the society. This book has done an excellent job of addressing a burning issue in the 21st century; masculinity decline. Perfect work.

    Great book. I like they way you emphasized against public expression of emotions by men. Siku hizi wanaume wanalia ovyo ovyo in public. While its not healthy to supress emotions, public display of emotions by men is a sign of declined masculinity. Mimi mwanaume analialia ovyo ovyo hadharani namrudishia mamake aendelee kunyonyesha.

    Feminists are hating this book because they don’t think rationally buts lets face it, strong women are celebrated because of their masculine traits because they are masculine. Martha Karua was once referred to as “The only Man in Kibakis cabinet because of her highly masculine mien when it comes to dealing with issues. If you can celebrate highly masculine women as strong women, why would you a book that encourages men to become more masculine? Unless you want men to become women and women to be men

    A 21st century man cannot afford to be weak. Its a crime. 21st century problems require high masculinity to solve. Weak men will bring down the modern civilisation. Keep spreading the good gospel. Excellent book.

    Jacob Aliet, Silas Nyanchwani, Chomba Njoka, Lubanga and Amerix should come together and organise a real mens conference in February. You can take advantage of the rest of the year to write more content to sell alongside what you have published to sell on that day. Guys, take advantage and own the event. Anyway, it a great book.

    This book is great in terms of writing quality, but I am against the tendency of giving weak men labels such as simps, manginas, white knights etc in the name of calling a spade and spade or trying to sound macho and highly masculine. You cannot save someone by insulting them. You will drive them further into femininity, and your efforts to save them will be counterproductive. Unfortunately, this book is full of labelling for both weak men and women

    I have been dating a single mother for two years. I have seen Amerix consistently warning men against single mothers but I was too much in love to heed to his message. I was to marry her this Dec. Then I read this book, and what Amerix has been saying became clearer to me. I am aborting this mission ASAP. Thank you guys for opening my eyes.

    Men , especially those in their twenties should invest in this book. People like me are using lessons from this book to recover from the mistakes we made in our 20s and early 30s. At least those in their 20s have a resource to guide them to avoid the mistakes we in our 40 made. One day you will look back and view this book as one of your most worthwhile investment of your youth.

    Masculinity aside, many teachings of this book are consistent with the teachings of books such as
    1. Neuropychology of self discipline
    2. Failing forward
    3. Thinking for change
    4. The magic of big thinking

    Great work!
