Yes, this book is very controversial. But of course, I love to read that kind of book.
In the years since it was published, Shrier’s book has been the subject of calls for Amazon to stop selling it, for Spotify to take down her interview with Joe Rogan, and at one point was *removed from shelves* by Target– all to prevent people from hearing her “harmful” message.
Douglas Murray’s The Madness of Crowds is another refreshing book about the craziness of our current society.
Why is speech now considered violence? Why have people started to introduce themselves with a laundry list of identity labels? Why is my generation faking mental disorders on TikTok for clout? Why are people so eager to cancel one another on Twitter? Why are we seeing insistences that math and science are racist?
In the past few years, it has become relatively common to see large and occasionally violent protests on college campuses when controversial, usually right-wing, speakers are invited.
This might be sacrilegious for me to say as a book blogger, but we all know book reviews are something of a squishy, subjective business.
How do you write a review for a nonfiction book? I’m not exactly sure. There’s no criticizable plot There’s no criticizable plot and I can’t exactly critique the characters, so this review is just going to be an amalgamation of everything I found interesting about this book. Which, in this case, was a LOT of things.
