WOW That was a trip The most anti politically incorrect book yet published that I have read And you know what s really amazing The guy is spot on in so many ways.I first came across the author back in the mid 1990s He was politically incorrect then, and was even a guest on Bill Maher s show of the same name But as Goad has gotten bitter over the years justifiably so , his wit and writing style has gotten even sharper Honed to a razor edge at this point.Goad is back, and he s back with a vengean [...]
I enjoyed reading this books as it speaks the unspeakable of today s moralism and shows the bitter truth about its hypocrisy and unsustainable arguments, it s aimed at the U.S but applies almost anywhere with internet connection A problem with the use of internet and the death of free speech by the common use of public shaming and not letting the other side expose an argument is the focus of this book.
I can t think of a single person I would recommend Jim Goad s writings to off the top of my head The reactions are always the same from everyone I ve lent his material to You love his and Debbie s, RIP brutal writingsuntil you find something that offends you Then you end up taking what he has to say personally and that ruins him for you Jim Goad is a scumbag His fans know it, his readers know it, his critics know it, even he knows it and he even wrote a really good book about it Calling him a sc [...]
I have to love a man who isn t afraid to speak truth to power in this case, taking today s media thought police to task skewering the political correctness that permeates every news story, social media post, television show and film modern audiences encounter Through the book s two parts one a critique and one a parody, Goad takes a stand against white, straight guilt with his very, very special brand of humor and sarcasm Goad has been around for a while, and if the holier than thou powers that [...]
The quickest way to get me to read a book is for a group of people to be outraged about it I know it hit a nerve and is most likely true Especially if the only retort against it is to whine like a child and sling mud like a caveman What an enjoyable read, if not just for the salty, salty tears ideologues have shed over it It helps that Jim is a good writer, but I probably would ve given it 5 stars even if he wasn t It s good to see someone who s honest, a quality in short supply these days If yo [...]
Usually when people type lol, it s total bullshit Not in this case I LITERALLY laughed out loud multiple times reading this critique of PC culture And, I could see some of the chapters in the parody section being taken seriously by the subjects of the mockery Best thing I ve read all year, highly recommend.
I ll occasionally still read Taki s Magazine, though it s mostly for Kathy Shaidle at this point, since the best writers over there Derbyshire, Sailer, et al are double posting at other outlets I d rather read anyway.Jim Goad was never my favorite at Taki, though I admit he can be humorous and insightful in small doses Reading all of his essays compiled together in one place makes his deficiencies too glaring, though He writes as if he s trying to cram a joke into every sentence, and the cumula [...]
Very amusing commentary And people wonder why I mostly read indie sci fi nowadays Those books are interested in telling stories, not soap boxing, so get this book if you feel like busting a gut over how over the top PC culture is shooting itself in the foot.
I am a big fan of Jim Goad, and he has created a solid book The satire in the last quarter of the book is perfect.
Obscene, hilarious, profane, provocative and pretty much right about everything.
