A book everyone should read. As a college English instructor, I can attest to the vital importance of its message.

A most interesting book in the Spirit of Orwell. It observes the trends of todays social climate in a thoughtful way.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
A very one sided reflection of recent events, framed around the response to Charlie Hebdo incident. Its a lengthy opinion piece which would be recommended to anyone with social libertarian views, however I suspect that his core readers won't learn much new from the book that they haven't already learned from Mick Humes various columns, especially his work on Spiked. It is nice to have my beliefs reinforced, however it does feel a little shallow
Was Trigger Warning: Is the Fear of Being Offensive Killing Free Speech? worth the listening time?
I had a bit of a warning sign when i heard the phrase "when i started writing this book late last year" and i think the six month schedule might have been too short. The book relies quite heavily on filler (often the historical context was repetitive and felt laborious) plus the constant reference to people as "Reverse Voltaires" just sounded bitter... However the whole experience was pleasant enough
Any additional comments?
I think interviewing the "Reverse Voltaires" would have been very interesting, asking the people he perceived as enemies of free speech some difficult questions would have dug deeper into the issue

I really thought the narrator was excellent.
I assumed this book may be a bit of an echo chamber for me as I am already quite interested in this type of thing. The last part about the media totally changed my perspective on, well, the media!
