Like listening to the audio? You can now get The Book of Pook as an Audiobook! (Over 13 hours of human narration - FAR superior to the machine generated TTS on this site!)

We also recommend checking out Pook's other book, "The Pook Manifesto" Audiobook (Over 15 hours of human narration). It is longer, contains more ideas, and is a lot of fun to listen to. If you like the Book of Pook, you will love this one.


There is only one main difference between men and women: men are curious while women never are.

One main difference between men and women: Men are curious. Women never are. Only thing women might be curious are new bodily pleasures. –

Of all the qualities of man, his curiosity is certainly the most impressive. This curiosity differs basically from that of woman. A woman takes interest only in subjects that have an immediate personal usefulness to her. For example, if she reads political article in the newspaper, it is highly likely that she wants to cast a spell on some political-science student, not that she cares about the fate of the Chinese, Israelis or South Africans. If she looks up the names of some Greek philosophers in the dictionary, it does not mean she has suddenly taken an interest in Greek philosophy. It means she is trying to solve a crossword puzzle. If she is studying the advertisements for a new car, she is not doing it with a platonic interest in its technical features, but because she wants to own it.

….

Man’s curiosity is something quite different. His desire for knowledge has no personal implications, is purely objective and, in the long run, is much more practical than a woman’s attitude.

….

Man’s curiosity is universal. There is almost nothing that does not interest him, whether it is politics, botany, nuclear physics, or God knows what. Even subjects out of his province hold his interest, such as bottling fruit, preparing cake mix or caring for a baby. And a man could not be pregnant for months without knowing all the functions of the placenta and ovaries in detail. 

Men not only observe the world around them, it is in their nature to make comparisons and to apply the knowledge they have gained elsewhere with the ultimate aim to transform this newfound knowledge into something else, something new.

One need not emphasize the fact that practically all inventions and discoveries in this world have been made of men ….

Pg. 41-43

Women not being curious, and hence not having a HUNGER to learn and see new things, has been one of my biggest disappointments with their sex. Without curiosity, there is no intellect, no ability, and no talent. The only curiosity women appear to portray is trying out new bodily pleasures. These include:

-New sex positions

-Dating Pook to try out his bodily pleasure (or another guy, or yet another guy)

-Eating stupid and absurd foods (women are annoyed that I am pleased with a decent grilled hamburger or steak most of the time).

-Sunbathing, saunas, and massages

-Sport type activities

-Why Action Dates work better than Talking Dates

Men vary in their intelligence and what they study. But all men are the same in that we are all curious…about everything…in some sort of way. Women lack this.

Women define ‘adventuresome’ as new sex positions, dating many guys, eating weird foods, and so on. But if a man pursues his curiosity, such as learning about space or the oceans or anything of that nature, he is condemned as a nerd.

In MGTOW sites and all, rarely do we hear men’s groups subscribe ‘curiosity’ to men. They may apply ‘smarts’ but smarts are different than ‘curiosity.’ Have we truly understood Vilar when we keep saying men are different because of (X) and not because of simple curiosity?

It should be noted that the animal greatest known for its curiosity is the cat. While cute and fuzzy, the cat is famous for its curiosity (“Curiosity killed the cat” etc). Some Men’s Rights Activists blast cats as spawns of Satan since they appear to possess the same traits as women do (selfish, lazy). But what if cats are liked by women because they possess the traits of men? Smart men are “lazy” (resting) whenever they get a chance and are always curious like the cat.
