Jack Donovan is the author of the The Way of Men — a straightforward, politically incorrect theory of masculinity that became an underground hit around the world.

He has appeared as a guest on The Art of Manliness, The Art of Charm, Mating Grounds, Renegade Radio, Blunt Force Truth and countless other podcasts to talk about his work.

Donovan has been blogging, writing and speaking about masculinity and tribalism since for over a decade.

He lives in the Pacific Northwest, where he leads a chapter of the infamous Wolves of Vinland  — an esoteric tribe of Germanic pagans.


“…a thought-provoking treatise on the essential struggle of men…” – Sam Sheridan, A Fighter’s Heart

Part treatise and part polemic, The Way of Men uses history and evolutionary psychology to explain primal masculinity and what he calls the four “Tactical Virtues” of masculinity — Strength, Courage, Mastery and Honor. BUY NOW

“Jack Donovan writes what most men think.” – Mike Smock, Pulse Firearms

A Sky Without Eagles is the first printed collection of Jack Donovan’s essays and speeches. Beginning with his viral hit, “Violence is Golden,” A Sky Without Eagles assembles Donovan’s best standalone commentary from 2010 through 2014. BUY NOW

Becoming a Barbarian attacks the emasculated emptiness of life in the modern West – “The Empire of Nothing” -and shows men how to think tribally again. It reveals the weaknesses of universalistic thinking, and challenges readers to become the kind of men who could go “all-in” and devote their lives to one group of people above all others. BUY NOW

Donovan picks up Friedrich Nietzsche’s thoughts on nobility and master morality and uses them to guide men through an “upside-down” modern world, avoid the trap of hateful ressentiment, and overcome adversity through creativity. In Donovan’s hands, Nietzsche’s words are rasps and chisels to help men refine a strength-based ethos, reveal their highest and noblest selves and become more complete men.  BUY NOW

Autographed paperback copies of The Way of Men, A Sky Without Eagles, and Becoming a Barbarian are available through the Brutal Company store.
