Here’s some interesting links I found while surfing the interwebs this week that might be of interest to AoM readers:

Specialization and Decline (@ financial sense) An interesting essay that compares today’s Western economies and culture to ancient Rome’s. The author argues that the more complex an economy becomes and the more decadent a culture becomes, the more susceptible it is to collapse.

25 Ways To Earn Money When You’re Broke On The Road (@ brave new traveler) If you plan on taking the great American road trip or going backpacking in Europe, here are some ideas on how you can make some scratch while you’re on the road. I actually have a friend who did number 8- farm work- while he was traveling in Europe. He picked strawberries to make some money and he said it was one of his best memories of his trip.

Walden, and 99 other Free Online Books Every Student of Humanity Should Read (@ universities and college) A great resource where you can read some literary classics for free. Many of the books on the 100 Books Every Man Should Read list are actually available for free online. Glen Sacks is the Executive Director of Fathers and Families, a non-profit father’s rights organization. Glenn has been fighting for family court reform that will undo the bias the system has against men. Needless to say, he has stirred up some controversy with his social commentary on the way men are treated in family courts or portrayed in the media.

Joseph Palmer: Persecuted For Wearing The Beard (@ jon dyer’s blog) In 1830, Joseph Palmer of Fitchburg, MA was persecuted for wearing a beard. Here is his story.

ManHelper The Folks at Womopo are re-launching their site as ManHelper. It’s an online men’s magazine that provides tips and tricks for life, relationships, and money.

Hey! Just discovered your site through and want to say how much I enjoyed reading even this weekly review. You can bet I’ll be back on a regular basis.

ManHelper? Really? I’m surprised to see you recommending them. I thought that you were trying to do something different than stuff like an article on “5 Signs That Tell She’s Horny” (complete with the revelation that “Two common physical indicators that tell a girl is horny is a slightly wet crotch and erect nipples”). That site is the antithesis of what you’re trying to do, but maybe I missed some redeeming quality in ManHelper.

Gonna have to agree with Jim on Manhelper. Hadn’t followed the link on that one.

Great site! Just found it searching Google. I also have a site ( that I’ve been working on for the last few months which is dedicated to the improvement of men. I would like to get your approval to add your site link to my links page?
