If you read this book looking to find that same fully-developed, well-honed, opinionated commentary on such an important issue as the state of the modern college campus, you may be dismayed. This book was written in Shapiro's younger years, way back in 2004, so it's a little dated. The principles he espouses and the facts he reports haven't lost their relevance, but you can tell that he still hasn't completely fleshed-out his writing voice.
A lot of the paragraphs are quite short, often amount to a quote from a whacky college professor, maybe some further explanation, and then a quick editorial. I wouldn't mind so much if I didn't know that Ben Shapiro is a genuinely intelligent and articulate individual who is definitely capable of meatier, richer work. As it is, this book does offer some interesting insights into the world of the four-year university which are still applicable today, but it is still evidently a product of Shapiro's earlier years as a columnist. A nice, fun read, but it hasn't quite stood the test of time.
