So you’re a man, like me. So you’re single, like me. From learning how to improve yourself to enjoying the single life and even pleasing women, here are 18 books that you should read.

Each of the books for single men on this list are recommended by Fupping contributors.

#1 She Comes First by Ian Kerner

Every man should read this, it's about how to please a woman. So many guys are so selfish and don't care about the woman's satisfaction. I know guys who refuse to go down on a woman but expect her to do it to him. Talk about selfish!

#2 How Not To Be a Boy by Robert Webb

Webb addresses toxic masculinity and the culture of “manning up,” and discusses the damage that’s caused by (and to) men who don’t engage with their emotions. If more men read this book they’d live much happier and more comfortable lives, and also be far more pleasant to be around!

#4 Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski

If a man has to read only one book on sex in his life, I would recommend this one.

The book is originally aimed at women. Its goal is to explain to women how arousal and orgasm works. But you know who really need information on female sexuality? Men!

Nagoski popularizes the dual control model of sexuality with a simple analogy. You have to read the book to get the subtleties, but in short, she compares the sexual response to a car. A car has two pedals: a brake pedal and a gas pedal. If you want to reach your destination (arousal and orgasm), you need to press the gas pedal. But if your brakes are activated, your car won't move.

The problem is that most men have a sensible gas pedal and most women have sensible brakes. Therefore, we often think that to please our female partner, we need to press harder on the gas. The truth is, for most women, we need to relax the break and forget about the gas.

Although Come as You Are goal is to explain this to women, I think it's still the most valuable book for a man who wants to become a better lover. While most sex books focus on the gas, this one will teach you how to relax the brakes.

#5 The Geek Feminist Revolution by Kameron Hurley

Geek culture and toxic masculinity have deep ties, and the antidote is a revolution in that culture to not only accept women as members, but also as leaders. It's one of the most valuable books about understanding gender and culture that I know of, based on but going far beyond pop culture, and I constantly recommend it to male friends

#6 The Forgotten Mission: The Return by Jonathan Taylor

Since the book is about espionage and conspiracies, it is strongly relevant to single men. Men, in fact, are usually interested in these topics and in sci-fi as a genre. This book, in particular, tells the story of a NASA employee who suddenly becomes involved with bigger conspiracies.

#7 Yes Man by Danny Wallace

An English author, who wasn't living life to the fullest after a breakup realizes its the best thing that's ever happened to him - once he starts to say Yes to EVERYTHING!

The book follower his journey and shows just what's possible in life. So good, it was made into a film! But don't get confused this is WAY better than the film. Why do I recommend it? I quit the job and lifestyle I thought I wanted and booked around the world trip that took me all over the world! That trip changed my life, and it might just change yours too!

#8 How to Win Friends and Influence People by Cale Carnegie

This is the best book ever. Not only for those in business but life in general. its a real classic. Even though its got age on its side (first published in 1936!!) its highly valuable today, some of the recommendations are often common sense but its those common sense things we often forget to do - such as calling everyone by their name!

Amazing book, and helped me to reach the level of Account Manager at 25 (youngest at the company) at a big-time digital advertising agency! Must read.

#10 A River Runs Through It and Other Stories by Norman Maclean

The author's only novel, written when he was in his 70s, and made into a hit movie in 1992 (directed by Robert Redford, starring Brad Pitt), River is about the Montana woods, fishing, family, and what it means to be a man. The narrator tells of the most important relationship of his life, with his charismatic ne'er-do-well brother, Paul, and his painful inability to reach him as Paul's life grew more reckless. A classic that men have handed to sons, brothers, and friends for decades, it is a beautifully understated portrait of the power and dangers of our ideas of masculinity.

#14 Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

I can't possibly convey how much solid wisdom and great guidance I have found in this book. I first read it in my early twenties and liked it, then picked it up around the time I turned 30 and it was just what I needed. It's more of a read a section or two and ponder it while you go onto your day. It's become a really solid part of my morning routine to read a passage before doing anything else. You'll see that the most powerful man in the world at the time struggled with the same things you do, and how he came to deal with as an older man looking back.

#15 No More Mr. Nice Guy by Robert Glover

It's the definitive book on what's come to be known as nice guy syndrome, which is guy’s tendency to be nice in a manipulative, creepy, underhanded way.

Reading it was really disconcerting at first; I felt like I’d been totally pegged. But it was ultimately very freeing because I understood myself better. I understood my own maladapted behavior with women, why I did it, and what the alternative, healthy approach looked like. It definitely helped that I wan’t alone, or crazy, just badly informed about what women want.
