    Inhaltsangabe

    The West’s commitment to freedom, reason, and true liberalism have become endangered by a series of viral forces in our society today. Renowned host of the popular YouTube show, The Saad Truth, Dr. Gad Saad exposes how an epidemic of idea pathogens are spreading like a virus and killing common sense in the West. 

    Serving as a powerful follow-up to Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules for Life, Dr. Saad unpacks what is really happening in progressive safe zones, why we need to be paying more attention to these trends, and what we must do to stop the spread of dangerous thinking. 

    A professor at Concordia University who has witnessed this troubling epidemic first-hand, Dr. Saad dissects a multitude of these concerning forces (corrupt thought patterns, belief systems, attitudes, etc.) that have given rise to a stifling political correctness in our society and how these have created serious consequences that must be remedied - before it’s too late. 

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    lazy cash grab

    completely unreflected, anecdotal cash grab trying to ride the flattening wave of the "intellectual dark web". however, if you like your prior beliefs to be confirmed by someone proudly reading his own tweets owning the libs. this is your book, lamenting endlessly about cherry picked anecdotes on the most superficial level. no analysis, nothing new and I admittingly taped out early. i think the author is a smart guy and fully aware but seems to be in desperate need for money and your donation is certainly well received. you have been warned, though.

    Definitely worthwhile

    The book had been suggested to me by the Audible algorithm for some time. But, I hadn't cared to read, as I didn't know much about Gad Saad, except that I've seen him make sardonic remarks about this or that. As I've been in the unknown about the exact context of his remarks, I've not been dumbfounded by his wit.
    Reading his book, though, he gained a lot of esteem.
    I think the strength of the book is the combination of a multitude of anecdotes, a solid foundation in evolutionary psychology and his personal account. It is said that the plural of anecdote isn't data, but anecdotes. Yet, if the anecdotes are true, if they are exemplary, and if they are as numerous as Saad's, then they do serve as data/evidence that something has gone astray in the world of liberal academia and elsewhere.

    Baseless rant

    I heard since of Saad's YouTube videos and thought he was interesting. the book hat disappointed me. what started as a very valid idea was argued with personal anecdotes and bias. I felt there was nothing positive or of this experience.

    a must read of our decade

    loved how his book portrays the intellectual corruption of postmodernism and how it spreads everywhere like a cancer. Still the open question remains: why has it found fertile ground?

    The root cause

    Where have thinkers been? Why did it take a Donald Trump to bring to light what is eating away our society?
    A must read on both sides of the border...

    To important to miss out on!

    Nobody should remain unaware of a terrible epidemic sweeping through western culture, which was supposedly on the fringes but permeates more and more aspects of society at a concerningly increasing rate.
    Professor Saad brilliantly outlines the characteristics of an abhorrent set of ideas threatening the bedrock of modern culture.
    The first step for dealing with a disease is its identification, which Professor Saad makes crystal clear for anyone listening to or reading this book.
    Arm yourself with the understanding of these pathological ideologies to protect yourself and your loved ones as well as in the long run all of society from this disease spreading.

    Parts were great, parts were dry and drawn out

    The audiobook starts of rather slow, but it gets really interesting in the middle. There were some genuinely great ideas and concepts especially around that time that gave me some reason to ponder. Saad's view on truth and science is a refreshingly conservative and reasoned analysis on how things should be.

    However, the last 1 1/2 hours felt dry and unnecessarily streched. When he establishes an "Epistemological network" to criticize Islam he actually reads of all 26 top candidates on the FBI most wanted list for like 2 minutes non stop. This list reading occurs in similar fashion about 5x in the last 90 minutes, sometimes with the 20 most homophobe countries etc.
    That is probably a fault if the audio book, in the real book you'd quickly glance over the list to get a good enough picture.
    In any case this was worth listening to.

    The narrator was clear and understandable, did a great job emphasizing sarcasm and a horrible job at foreign language pronunciation, but that is forgivable.
