I mean Fight Club itself was written somewhat like an instruction manual.

The problem is that the 'final step' is always suicide, either literal or egotistical. The entire fucking point behind Fight Club was how dangerous it is to believe that it's worth it to go down that path, in spite of everything else.
>>
Understand Zen Buddhism.
Understanding Nihilism.
Understanding Existentialism.
Understanding Postmodernism.
Understanding Dadaism.
Understanding that all of these are one in the same.
Understand that life is meaningless.
See beyond symbolic meanings.
Understand the relativity of cultural beliefs.
Understanding the absurdity of interpreting certain relative beliefs to be true.
Understanding there is no pre-set meaning to existence.
Understand that since there is nothing to be happy about, there is also nothing to be sad about (“deconstruct” all linguistic dualities).
Stop giving a fuck.
Be free and indifferent (a man without false ideological motive).
And fuck over anyone who tries to avert you from said freedoms.

This along with Society of the Spectacle, The Consumer Society, and Simulacra and Simulation
>>
The theme of Society of the Spectacle is that we no longer live in a society, but, rather, a "spectacle" that is mediated by images (i.e., appearances—the way we look, dress, act, talk, etc. around others). In this spectacle, one must assimilate and conform to the status-quo in order to find a social sense of acceptance. In other words, nothing is genuine or real, but simply a façade. Society is a game of fake and phony rules and courtesies. And we all must play by these socially constructed rules lest we be expelled by the system.
Tyler Durden (in the movie) sought to disestablish the corporate capitalistic system, specifically, since it makes slaves out of its citizens.
The character of Tyler Durden comes across more as an absurdist or existential Marxist than anything else.

The Consumer Society by Baudrillard is a good choice. But there's a lot of theory you have to understand before embarking upon it. As this post (>>7684178) makes mention.
