The book was exactly what I wanted it to be. It's an in depth look as to how Ben Shapiro views the left and why, giving more insight than he can cover in his regular lectures. However, the narrator wasn't great. He didn't really hit any of the humor Shapiro wrote and read everything straight forward with energy that just doesnt match the writing. I can't help but wonder if this narrator ever heard Shapiro speak. I still enjoyed the audio book just wish they got a better voice actor to narrate it or better yet, Ben Shapiro himself.

Which character – as performed by Charles Constant – was your favorite?
The performance by Charles Constant was excellent. As this is a non-fiction, the challenge was to maintain a spirited reading without the presence of multiple characters. Constant achieves this, bringing Shapiro's message to life. Shapiro is known for using humour in all his work, and Constant delivers Shapiro's wit in true form. The only way the audiobook's performance could be improved would be to have Shapiro narrate it himself.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The novel as a whole is honestly the best I have read/heard in the realm of political commentary, and the conclusion is the masterpiece. It both concludes the body of work, and humanizes it by including Shapiro's experiences with the late Andrew Breitbart. Although it is history, I won't spoil any further, as it shows both why the book exists and why it needed to exist at the same time.
Any additional comments?
Shapiro comments on "secularist bullies" late in the book, elaborating how some atheists bully religious people in the political arena. I believe that secularist would be the wrong term for his analysis, as the behaviour he examines is better described as anti-religious. As such, the rest of the chapter suffers as he fails to distinguish between the two.
If I could, I would give this work a 9/10, it would certainly feel better than giving it a 4/5, but seeing that people like arbitrary scores, lets say a 13/14, or 93%.
