He's brash, brilliant, and drawn to controversy like a moth to a flame. For decades, Mark Steyn has dazzled audiences around the world with his raucous wit and brutal honesty. Whether he's sounding off on the tyranny of political correctness, the existential threat of Islamic extremism, the "nationalization" of the family, or the "near suicidal stupidity" of America's immigration regime, Steyn is always provocative - and often laugh-out-loud hilarious.

I must learn to read the blurb. This is a collection of articles from Mr Styne. Some as far back as the 1987. I was expecting a much more updated look into Western politics. Instead I got a lot of random articles - some relevant to today, some ridiculous (Maralyn Monroe at 70?)

This did touch on subjects that effect us in 2018 but it was a little muddled, mixing current affairs with humerus unreality.

Overall, Styne is entertaining, and his articles are filled with humour. I laughed out loud more than once. It simply wasn't my cup of tea. My own fault, I should have read the blurb rather than scan it.

The Art of the Argument shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods, and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, The Art of the Argument smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.

Point perfect in The Argument

This is a fabulous read/listen for anyone who sees irrationality all around them, though when they point it out, is hounded by the utterly irrational sophist that hangs like a dark cloud over ever rational debate.

This book helps us to understand The Argument, to understand the rain of sophistry that eventually comes down on a reasonable debate when an opponant can't refute an uncomfortable truth. It helps us understand their vicious irrational, incapable acceptence of truth, and it teaches us how to deal with these lost souls.

Not only are we taught to understand The argument, but dotted throughout is a plethora of social issues that cause debate and the eventual encounter of sophistry, but I found it helped me understand these social issues further myself.

If you want to fight for truth, to rid the world of the continued brainwashing and purposeful dumbing down of future generations, the driving out of their ability to think for themselves, read this book, then pass it on. Not just physically, but pass on Molyeux's exceptional wisdom in ever day life by telling others, by not being afraid to fight for truth.

I'd recommend this to anyone who's not only into philosophy, but anyone who believes the lies are getting to much, lies that are lately beginning to overshadow the truth. We need brave people to spread this wisdom, regardless how much resistance you encounter.

The Art of the Argument could be one of the most important books of our time. Five stars from me.

The liberal media machine did everything they could to keep this book out of your hands. Now, finally, Dangerous, the most controversial book of the decade, is tearing down safe spaces everywhere.

Milo is a hero. He dares to speak the truths hardly anybody dares to speak. Most importantly his faboulous, witty, inteligemt, book 'Dangerous', can inspire us all to speak up and point out the emperor has no clothes. The left is insane, identity politics is mental. It's time to get real and bring the kids a large plate of truth with a side order of danger. Telling us not to be afraid of being dangerous, not to worry about how we'll be percieved, Milo is spot on. We *ALL* need to get real.

A fantastic, spectacular, honest, and bloody flamboyant book. It should be compulsive reading for every kid currently being brainwashed by politicised umiversities. Buy it, read/listen to it, pass it on. The world needs this message.
