MAGA Mindset reviews

First, thanks to everyone who made MAGA Mindset Castalia's second-most-successful book launch after Cuckservative. That was great; Mike noted that it was even more successful than his Gorilla Mindset launch. And more than a day after its launch, it is still in the Amazon top 250.

A couple of people have posted reviews I thought worth highlighting here, first of all, Caleb Q. Washington:
If I had to describe the book in just a sentence, it is SJWs Always Lie meets Gorilla Mindset condensed to their core, with a unifying theme of Donald Trump.

The book is divided into three sections on culture, media and mindset. The first lays out, in brutal terms, the cultural landscape of modern America and how it paved the way for Trump’s rise. Cernovich does it in such a way that he won’t sound like a conspiracy theorist to uninitiated readers, which is really hard to do given the gulf between reality and the media created dreamworld most of America lives in. The first section is as good of a redpill as any I’ve seen. It will convert people to Alt-Right....

For people like me, who read Cernovich & Vox Day blogs and books, who know the state of cultural rot in America, who already see the media as adversarial to the American nation, this book is going to feel like it’s preaching to the choir and telling you things you already agree with. This book was written to create more allies for us. You should read it, enjoy a well done work pushing your worldview and pass it on to people who it will impact greatly.
He's right. MAGA Mindset is a great starting point for young men and women who sense that there is something wrong with America, but would be overwhelmed by the likes of SJWAL and Cuckservative. It's short, it's succinct, and it's straight to the point.

The notorious Charles C. Johnson took a break from his various nefarious plans to wreak havoc throughout the world to write a review as well:
You may ask: are you really telling me Donald Trump fought the world and won just thanks to his mindset?

Yes. And Mike Cernovich makes that compelling case in MAGA Mindset, using Donald Trump’s boyhood pastor, who was also a best-selling author of “positive thinking” books, as evidence.

And it looks like he’s right. Trump never backs down, never stops fighting, and always wins in the end.

But it all begins in his head.
I am genuinely alarmed. Chuck Johnson is a serious dark lord, and the idea of him applying even some of the lessons taught in MAGA Mindset is not only frightening, it is almost beyond imagining. He is the Dr. Evil of the Alt-Right. In other news, Mike Glyer of File 770 was amused by the press release Castalia's PR team sent out to the media concerning Mike's latest book:
Mike Cernovich’s new book, MAGA MINDSET: Making YOU and America Great Again, is the #1 bestseller in Amazon’s Politics & Social Sciences>Leadership category. That’s not surprising, as his prevous book, Gorilla Mindset, self-published in 2015, was also a bestseller

What is surprising, however, is that languishing behind the Donald Trump-supporting author’s latest bestseller is Stronger Together, a book published only last month, written by Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine. The Clinton-Kaine book, signed by Simon & Schuster to $14 million advance, currently sits at 5th place in the category…..

The new Cernovich bestseller, signed to an advance that was, according to Day, “pretty close to $14 million less than Clinton and Kaine got,”….
As always, the perspicacious commenters at File 770 didn't hesitate to demonstrate their astuteness and keen powers of observation in all matters even tangentially related to the Supreme Dark Lord.

"Teddy doesn’t mention it’s number one in that tiny subcategory because it was FREE, and listed prominently on ebook freebie sites. I follow a couple so I don’t remember which."

One almost has to admire their determination to stick to the Narrative no matter what the actual, readily confirmable facts are. As it happens:
  • The book is $7.99 for ebook, $9.99 for paperback.
  • The book ranked #226 on all of Amazon and #22 in Nonfiction.
  • The #2 book in the Media Studies category has 831 reviews and is ranked #3,425 on Amazon.
  • The #2 book in the Leadership category has 971 reviews and is ranked #803 on Amazon.

$14 million? The end for Simon and Schuster can't come soon enough. Such insanity should always be deeply rewarded.

I just purchased the book and I'm giving it a read. I know a lot of people who know that something is wrong, as I can hear them grumble about things or shy away from anything dark or real like they want to pretend it doesn't exist. However, it's hard to communicate with them about anything once you've moved into the territory of seeing reality. I'll have to let others borrow a copy of the book. The book should serve as a great point of entry for a lot of people to whom I've found it hard to even communicate the existence of certain observations.

$14 million is the going rate for being allowed to exist after Herself repeals the 1st Amendment.

Show respect SJW are always geniuses and they never lie

Henry Ford, Norman Vincent Peale and Howard Hughes were all very successful. Steve Jobs was very successful. As things stand at the moment they are all substantially deceased. Rumours of their demise aren't exaggerated. Their designs are being built in lots of places they never would have lived.

Somehow though Vox it seems to me an Amish Farmer's wife doing quilts will leave something behind that is useful, well loved and beautiful..

Slow news day. Lots of lights and colour and balloons, fireworks, froth and bubbles.
And Shakespeare might have called it "signifying nothing".

Anne Hathaway got his second most valuable bed; and the taming of the shrew goes unread. A candle lit vigil for wikileaks. Truth isn't making the news.

We really do need to work better on converting the normies by making the left look ridiculous, like pointing out That moment when Hillary laughs at gays being throwing off buildings in Islamic countries... #debatenight https://twitter.com/JxhnBinder/status/788952047123136512

My great-uncle Ted, who was a good man I loved, only allowed his wife and my grandfather (Nick, his brother) to call him Teddy. SJWs clearly intend to convey disrespect, but I suspect it bother me more than it does Vox.

The Clinton/Kaine advance is obviously just a way to make a campaign contribution, or an outright bribe. This is an old trick going back to the 80's at least. Its a variation ob Jim Wrights scam.

Simon and Schuster is just a conduit.

Anonymous Bagger Vance October 20, 2016 11:56 AM  

Is it just me or do big advances for memoirs, etc to elected officials from media conglomerate publishing wings just look like legacy media payoffs? I mean, if you were actually a publishing house trying to earn your payroll, why would you give a $14M advance for a book to two people running for office, when neither of them would write it, and no one would buy it?

Vox,

Your AMA thread got flooded with silly posts, so I wanted to comment here.

Thank you for the informative and *complete* succinctness of your answers. As someone with a history of wordiness, you provide an instantly recognizable demonstration for me.

Thank you.

You're welcome. I'm glad someone got something out of it.

There's no doubt in my mind that positive thinking works. But I still wonder how to determine whether it's good or evil, either generally or on a case-by-case basis. I could argue both sides at this point but clarity escapes me.

"Chuck Johnson is a serious dark lord ... he is the Dr. Evil of the Alt-Right."

Are you saying that all Supreme Dark Lords are supreme, but some are more supreme than others?
