However, this is irrelevant as this entire <100 page book reads more like a message board forum post than an actual book. In fact, I've gotten more value out of random message board posts than this book for precisely that reason - those were free. Lauren Southern says nothing that you probably haven't heard a dozen times already, aside from maybe the 1-page exposition on the origin on neocons.
Moreover, she pretends to be redpilled while obliviously (or perhaps deliberately) saying anything too controversial that would offend her (((corporate owners))). This book pretends to be "edgy right wing content" but honestly it reads like standard normiecon material one step removed from the likes of Ben Shapiro.
Finally, the entire writing style seems...amateurish. As if written be a somewhat intelligent college freshmen who is trying to trigger his leftist professors. It honestly seems as if Lauren was mad about the state of the west one day, and decided to right a long rant. Then, a lightbulb went off in her head, she spent a couple of days expanding said rant, ran it by an editor once, and out came this gem. Props to her for making money off this, I guess.
It’s still a breath of fresh air in the current political climate. I may not be Right-leaning like Lauren Southern, but I learned a lot about the ways Right-wing millennials think. I do wish it had been longer—at just over $10AUD, it didn't feel like it was worth the price tag. It's more like a pamphlet.
As if that weren’t bad enough, Lauren appears more interested in pointing fingers than making solutions. She’ll denounce modern-day young women for having casual sex and blames that on the fall of society, yet fails to provide any solutions on what said women should do. She blames Boomers for raising an entitled generation, yet offers no way for that to be remedied beyond a vague “return to traditionalism.” She blames immigration and Islam for ruining western culture, offering nothing but one-sided sources (and quote unreliable, like blog posts) to back up said claim. She assumes that all Muslims and non-western nations are out to ruin western society, completely ignoring the fact that western-born Muslims also exist and thrive.
You would think that someone known for activism against mass immigration would have valid, in-depth research to prove her point. Not Lauren. All she has is blog posts and overused rhetoric.
Don’t waste your money. Obvious cash grab from someone who has no idea how the world truly works. I am convinced that when she gets to my age, this book will be an embarrassment.
Lauren deeply examines, with insight, the topics that are relevant to the shaping of today's society.
She is clear about what "Screwed My Generation".
The book is brilliant, thorough, focused and engaging.

The book is a nice easy read. It's more of a columnist style essay rather than serious political piece. Some good humour thrown in as well, especially concerning Caitlyn Jenner... (Won't spoil it for you).
Have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
My only problem with the book is that it was a bit short. I didn't totally feel i got value for money. There are a load more issues to discuss and I think Lauren cap open the scope of the conversation up a bit more. I'll be glad to support future endeavors.
