Hard Times Create Strong Men by Stefan Aarnio

In the Hard Times Create Strong Men book, Stefan Aarnio argues that modern Western men are weak—and this weakness will lead to the decline of Western civilization, especially America. To avoid this, men must learn to be strong by taking ownership of every aspect of their lives so that they can defend the practices and ideologies that make America great.

Aarnio was an award-winning Canadian real estate investor who authored several books on topics ranging from masculinity to business. He wrote Hard Times Create Strong Men in just 11 days and published it in 2018. His book combines original insights with extensive quotations from others, notably The Way of Men by Jack Donovan and The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida. Aarnio passed away from cancer in 2020. 

About the book

What does it mean to be a man in the modern world? Throughout history, being a man has meant different things. Maybe being a man was about being a good hunter, or a good soldier, a good businessman or maybe good with women.

Hard Times Creates Strong Men examines what it means to be a man in the modern world relative to money, sex, religion and politics. This book examines what worked and what doesn't work based on proven history instead of feelings. This book is raw, real and politically incorrect, it will threaten and challenge your ideas of what does it mean to be a man and how to better serve your purpose.

Here's what you'll discover in our Digital version of Hard Times Create Strong Men:

  • Why modern Western men are weak, leading to civilization decline

  • How to be a strong man at work and in relationships

  • Why pickup artistry doesn't lead to fulfilling relationships

What others think about it: 

A Great Book For Young Adults
“After reading this book, I made many lifestyle and mindset changes. I greatly appreciated Stefan Aarnio’s guidance as I walk down the path towards becoming a strong man.

Some reviewers have complained that Aarnio overly criticizes his father, but I did not find this to be the case (it was a small part of the first section). In fact, by the end, he talks about how his dad seems to be turning his life around. Additionally, I’ve seen people complain about the graphic illustrations in the book. I don’t really feel that these add much, but they do upset the reader’s expectations, which helps Aarnio to drive his point home within each chapter.

Overall, this is a book that I would recommend to everyone 18 and up. I don’t think I would have been ready to read this when I was younger than that, but hearing this as a young man, I was deeply impacted.”

Must have for your library
“Best book I’ve read in a while, the knowledge in it is invaluable for understanding the world we live in today. Stefan Aarnio killed it with this book and I’m grateful he took the time to write it. I couldn’t put this book down and I will be reading it a second and probably third time.”
