    Description

    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.

    tres ennuyant / very boring

    Dommage, le sujet d'annoncait interessant mais le story telling permanent et le debut du livre est particuliement ennuyant.

    Some pros and some cons

    I heard about this book a couple months ago, and it sounded interesting since I love reading about the irrationality of people. Previously, I never heard of Gad Saad, so I followed him on Twitter and checked out his YouTube channel. Within about a week, I unfollowed him. I'm 100% for debating and the sharing of ideas, but like many of the current SJW-bashing "intellectuals", they seem more interested in arguing than having a debate. Nevertheless, I still purchased the book on release day. 

    This book definitely falls into the category of books I'm reading of people I disagree with, but not by much. If I had to break it down into percentages, I'd say I disagree with about 60% of what Gad Saad has to say, but I agree with 40%. But when it comes to his overall argument that we should be able to have logical, rational discussions without people becoming outraged, I 100% disagree. 

    While Gad Saad uses quite a bit of research to back his arguments, it's only on specific subjects. For people like Gad Saad, Sam Harris, Dave Rubin, and others, I feel there are some low-hanging fruit subjects that they love capitalizing on. When it comes to implicit biases, they avoid discussing the research because they either A) know the research isn't on their side or B) are afraid of what the research shows. Rather than looking at the research of people like Dr. Jennifer Eberdhardt, they try to simplify the message of the book White Fragility. Personally, I'd love to see someone like Gad Saad go head-to-head with Dr. Eberdhardt or Keith Payne to discuss biases and inequality.

    Lastly, I gave this book a 3-star rating because there's a group of these authors that don't really present anything new in their books, but they know they'll make money off of the echo chamber they've built, so they figure "why not?".

    Please allow the author to read their book

    That was an abomination of Saad’s thoughts and words. Hiring a voice to pretend to care absolutely destroys the poignancy of his work. The amount of mispronounced, underwhelming, and incorrectly emphasized language detracts from the intention of this book. Saad himself is fun, witty, sarcastic, and extremely intelligent in his analysis, and your voice actor pales in comparison to the author. The $ you save by hiring a vocal ‘professional’ is lost immediately as the audiobook has no ‘sticking power’ when reduced this way. I love the content, I despise the delivery.

    Amusing yet terrifying book

    You will smile at various phrases that the author has invented but after a while you will realize how deep his thoughts are. What distinguishes this book from others on the fall of Western Civilization is the accurate and wholesome diagnosis of the problem, choice of clear words and the broadness of the solutions offered. This book must be part of college curriculum and beyond.

    Another Entry for the Echo Chamber

    The author's style is engaging, and I'm sympathetic with most of his positions, but I can't give this book more than a middling review. It's bag of intellectual potato chips. You'll consume the whole thing in one sitting, but don't expect to be better for it.

    This is not a follow up to 12 rules to life.

    I normally don't write reviews but I have some strong thoughts on this book.

    1. This book is extremely hostile towards the left. Saad didn't do much in trying to separate your average liberal or center left person from a left wing extremist. When ever he wants to make a point that might be present in both political teams he will use language like "Some on the right" then follow up with "Many" or "Most on the left"

    2. In part 2, Saad makes a claim that people that voted against Trump did it simply because the media fueled the negative viewpoints towards him and that if everyone on the left simply took the time to look at his policies then maybe they would have voted for Trump. He made a further point that Trump ran on common sense policies while the left ran with Hillary on a "Vote for her because she is a woman" platform. This is simply a very narrow view of the 2016 election. If you educated everyone on policy its 100% more likely that those in the far right and those in the far left would both move towards the middle. Instead Americans suffer from only having 2 political options.

    3. Saad makes it a point to focus a lot on the bad science (mostly on gender)the far left promotes but fails to point the the science denial that goes on the right on an everyday basis. This is just my theory but I think that because Mr. Saad is a Canadian resident he seems to attribute the more center right conservative mindset from Canada and applies it to the American conservatives. I don't think Mr. Saad quite understands that attack on science that has come from the right wing politicians in America.

    4. The book offers no solutions to the mind parasites he highlighted on his title. The book simply points the finger at the left and lays the blame of western civilization declining on liberals. It's a lot of "No u" arguments and echo chamber right wing talking points.

    5. If you read 12 rules to life and think this is a follow up, it is not. if you lean right and want to have a positive feedback loop of ideas then you might enjoy this.

    6. I did not hate the book. The points Saad makes about the far left and the attack on free speech are valid. its just for every 1 good point there is about 3 bad ones that could easily apply to the right as well.

    An Inculation to Disordered Thinking and Chaos

    I graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2017, the year a mob of angry students overran the school and caused a disruption that garnered national attention. I stood by and watched as my alma mater was debased to pander to the hero fantasies of a group of self-indulgent children. I knew if I followed my conscience, I would pay the price and lose the good will as an ally that I had worked so hard to achieve. 

    What happened at Evergreen was very serious, and very wrong. Now, the sentiments of those students have scaled to encompass the nation, and the moral development of a generation has been stunted because responsible people have continued to indulge them.

    Actions, and inactions, have consequences. When faced with a tough moral choice, I chose silence. Consequently, I was helpless when a cause I supported upended an institution I held so dear.  I won’t make that mistake again.

    If you have any love for virtue, character, responsibility, or achievement read this book and spread it widely. If only a handful students at Evergreen had received this inoculation, they could have "flattened the curve" of infection and saved thousands, if not millions of innocent minds.

    AMAZING

    Do you question everything you have seen in 2020. Well read this book and become Woke....The Real Woke not that nonsense that is being peddled on mainstream or legacy media. The Gadfather brilliantly explains all the bs we have been subjected to and more importantly what our kids have been subjected to. Thank you Gad for fighting the good fight. Everyone time to must up courage and grab your intellectual spear and defend yourselves. Enjoy

    Life changing book!

    Gad Saad is a witty, brilliant scientist and teacher. He is also widely known for his magnifent looks! This book is terrific. Gad discusses complex ideas in an easy going way that is understandible to the great unwashed

    80% Nonsense, 20% Narcissistic Filler

    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?

    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.
