Ben Shapiro continuously impressed me throughout the book seeing as all his arguments were backed up my solid data. There are sometimes where it is noticeable that the data is skewed a bit to favor Ben's arguments which is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5 star rating.

Absolutely eye opening. A must read, or listen for everyone. It will provide you with more knowledge and a greater understanding of why American entertainment's standards have fallen, and some suggestions on how to bring back, or raise those standards again.
The narrator was generally good, but there were a few small parts where he seemed... Uninteresting, or unappealing for lack of better words to describe it. But overall he was very good, and I'd listen to him again.

Would you listen to Porn Generation again? Why?
I would perhaps use it as an academic source, but I am not sure I would listen to it again for fun.
The narrator isn't a particularly good one, and the editing isn't helping.
That said, the actual content of the book was deep, well-researched, and well-sourced. It does suffer from the assumption that this book will be read by someone with little knowledge of American culture, and yet is difficult to penetrate without that knowledge. As a Brit, many things simply didn't quite ring with me, but the general subject matter did touch me as another inhabitant of the Christian Western developed world.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Andrew Bernays?
I would not pick another book by Andrew Bernays because he narrated it, and I would pick another narrator if the option is there. Andrew is serviceable, but not notable, and his performance here isn't particularly great.
However, his tone matches the tone of the book, and that is to be commended.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The book covers the education system, media system, and so on, with the effects on the youth and children of American society, as well as the increase of electronic consumption and the effects of the Internet on the generation Ben speaks about.
It has made me consider my attitudes about how I will raise my children, and how I shall hope to guide their future.
Any additional comments?
I would really recommend this book to be read, but the Audible is fair enough.

Fast and spot on. Ben has really good books. I really enjoyed this book too.
Very sad read on the extent of sexualisation in society. What I liked was Ben's wit about the tripe and propaganda coming out of Hollywood. His facetiousness dig at the producers, stars, singers, (harlots, sluts and pimps); willingly participating in pushing the acceptance of porno to the younger generation.
This should be read or listened to by everyone.
Hollywood, advertising agencies, and the media at large have a lot to answer for.
Well done Ben Shapiro
Now, I want to see what else of his work is available.
