PROLOGUE
(Or, How to suspect you might be a bit, you know, Beta.)


"Graham is ready for you now" she called over from the doorway.
"Huh?"
My noise was in fact filler. I was knocked sideways and I wanted to stand my ground. While at my desk at the end of a production office in a prestigious UK TV company.

"He's just come off the phone: he can see you now". Again, I didn't get it.

Why is she bellowing this at me like my dinner's ready?





What Is A Beta Male?

A Beta Male is a man who thinks he is an Alpha Male,
but isn't.


Mankind has passed its harshest judgement of worth:

Beta Male doesn’t even get his own page on Wikipedia.



It's redirected to the Alpha Male listing.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_male

Even here, “Beta male” is under the Alpha.

But Beta Males think they are useful.
They think they have all the power, because Alpha Males can't do anything without Betas agreeing to be there.

There have been hundreds, thousands of texts, books, and articles written about Leaders. The Secrets of Leadership... How To Become A Leader... How To Beat Everyone Else... How To Win.

Nothing has been written about how to be a great follower.
Maybe it's because we don't aspire to be the other guys... the wing-men... supporters... cheerleaders.


(By the way, never, ever, leave Mickey hanging.)

But we all know when we feel like we are "Also in the room". Blanked. Sidelined. Chumps.

Who would have the courage to out themselves as a proud Beta Male?

To remind those mouth-breathing gobshites who think the world was created to hear their roar, would be nothing without you.

Being Beta is not about feeling thwarted.

Or hapless.

Beta Male is an awesome lifestyle, and right here is where I will try to show you why.





I Feel Sorry For Lewis Hamilton, He Has To Wear A Hat For A Living
(Or, I Don't Have To Wear A Hat For A Living)




Lewis Hamilton gets paid by Santander and has to wear a hat.

I owe Santander a house, and don't have to wear one.

Does... that make me the Alpha Male?

What Do You Drive?
Or, What Drives You?


IF YOU ARE AN ALPHA MALE:
you care about looks, appearances, image, FRONT.



This is a Land Train.




So is this.




And this.




I want to use a land train as a family car.


To me, this means I am still Alpha Male:

More space in the back than anyone else, and truly owning the road.

How can you tailgate that?
You can't.
Not at 7 mph.
And you've just got to wait till I stop.


(Though, even within this subset of this niche, why do I still think that I'd end up with that third one in the pictures?)
