Ben Shapiro's Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future is a serious-minded treatise on morality, sexuality, and the modern era which attempts to coral a wide variety of statistics, trends, and anecdotal evidence into a cohesive commentary on West's so-called "porn generation", and the social mores that define the lives of young Americans today.
Andrew Sweeney's performance perfectly complements the academic tone of this extremely thought-provoking conservative work; his reading is calm and measured, but eminently listenable, and he guides the listener through Shapiro's arguments with great grace. An interesting and engrossing contribution to the ongoing debate on modern American cultural values.
Talkin' about my generation? It's the Porn Generation
It's everywhere, from commercials to New York Times best-sellers to college (and even younger) classrooms. In fact, pornography has become such a part of normal life in 21st century America that many teens and twenty-somethings have had no more important influence. They are the porn generation, where life's expectations come from Mouseketeer pop tarts, Victoria's Secret, internet titillation, and condom-flogging sex education.
Tom Wolfe's novel Charlotte Simmons told part of the story - but in Porn Generation it's for real. Ben Shapiro speaks as a member of this generation, and the tale he has to tell is a shocking perspective on life in an age where moral relativism reigns on college campuses, oversexed narcissism rules the airwaves, and purity is the new sin. In Porn Generation you'll learn:
Is there any good news? Yes. A lifestyle of playing pimps and hos - even if dressed up in preppie clothing - can only last so long before disease, despair, and depression set in - and many in the porn generation are beginning to wake up to their tragedy. Ben Shapiro closes Porn Generation with a roundtable discussion that brings together the diverse perspectives of columnist and bestselling author Michelle Malkin, Dallas Morning News op-ed editor Rod Dreher, former Princeton chaplain Father C. J. McCloskey III, and columnist and best-selling author David Limbaugh to discuss how bad things have become and what the prospects are for bringing the porn generation back from the brink. Porn Generation is the book that will define this generation - and provide a warning for generations to come.

"A Great Liberal Digest"
Don't let my total fool you. It's a great liberal digest for those that need to learn how to defend conservative values.
"GREAT BOOK ON OUR MELTDOWN"
There is no escaping the TRUTH. Shapiro is 100% correct in his argument in spelling out the moral degradation that we are witnessing in our society and how it impacts our culture (especially for our children). He craft fully outlines how we are being sold out by Hollywood, the Music Industry, our education system, and our government. If you have children, you should read this book. A+
"Listen to it, or read it, but don't neglect it"
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.
"As a social scientist"
Shapiro is so smart. I have a MA is Cross-cultural studies, and found this book to be right on so many levels, and I learned some things in the process. Must read if you'd like to reverse the tide of hypersexualization, and restore innocence to childhood.
As a recently married 21 year old, I can with certainty say this is all true.
"Ben Shapiro dissects the culture with a scalpel."
Ben outlines the cultural degredation that is occuring to our generation in all its facets - media, Hollywood and education.
"like a boss"
Ben Shapiro showing great wisdom far beyond his years! Definitely one of the better books I've read,
"Greatest Book On A Tabboo Subject"
Other than that, a truly intellectually-based, intriguing book that is somewhat outdated. that being said, every moral concept and consequence mentioned in the book has never been more real and relevant.
"Great book bad narration"
The narrator doesn't seem to understand sarcasm. The only reason I caught as much of it as I did was because I listen to the author online a lot.
A real look at what is wrong with our society - one of many things. Ben Shapiro is strong and if more people were like him this world would be a better place. The only negative is that the narrator isn't Ben. Ben Shapiro is sarcastic and that doesn't come through with this narrator vs his podcast.
