First of all, I am a long-time fan of Doren. I have subscribed to his How The World Works channel for over a year. I watched most of his videos, and I will continue to.

His book is logically sound; I agree with his thesis and most of his arguments. The author does support his claims with evidence. There are many benefits to reading this book, but rather writing what has already been said on the dozens of 5-star reviews (which would not have bettered anybody in any way), I will provide constructive criticism to the author and to let potential readers know what to expect from this product.

First of all, the book is very short. It will take no more than an hour to complete; it took me 34 minutes to complete it. Those who are expecting a full length book from 100-300 pages should now not be disappointed. At the same time, that is a good thing, as the author does not pad the book's length with talking points, irrelevant humor, anecdotes, or superficially useful information.

Essentially, I consider it more of a chain of blog posts than an actual book. There are many occasions where the author makes a very valid point, but rather than going in depth and explaining it in great detail, he simply moves on to the next topic.

The problem is that if you have watched many of Lee's videos or you are a very informed citizen, you probably already know at least 90% of what he writes in the book. I have not learned anything new from reading this personally.

Lee Doren of YouTube's HowTheWorldWorks writes an entertaining and intelligent account of his own journey from being a leftist "community organizer" to a libertarian media pundit. He talks about his own experiences in college and offers advice for getting through academia as a student.

For me, the most impressive part of the book was when he talks about how to deal with biased professors -- he explains how to stand up for your own ideas in a respectful way that neither sacrifices your integrity nor creates a dangerous enemy out of the professor. He also says that if a professor requires you to write an essay defending an idea you think is wrong, it'd be a good idea to do so as a useful debate-style exercise, rather than potentially martyr yourself. It's a quick read, and no one will miss the 99 cents it cost them.

I work in a school and grabbed it while on my lunchbreak via my phone, sat down intending to just check out a chapter or two.. and ended up losing all track of time and reading half of the book.

Lee just has a very unique demeanor and is able to argue against some of the most vile and hateful people on the planet while always maintaining his cool and showing them respect at all times, give this guy a few decades and I'm sure we'll consider him the second coming of Milton Friedman.

Buy this book, it really does shine a lot of light on why things have gotten as bad as they are now, and how in this mess someone like Obama can maintain any approval rating at all.

I came across this book by way of Lee's website, which I came by via Lee's YouTube channel, which I came across when a friend of mine posted one of Lee's videos on his (my friend's) Facebook wall (it was the video arguing that price gouging saves lives). I admire Lee's enthusiasm for his cause, and I can see him going far (I've gotten the impression that motivation is one of the most important factors in success); on the other hand, it seems he tends to strike a more combative tone in his videos/writing than is desirable if one's goal is to persuade those who disagree.

Things I liked about the book:
- It's short. I'm not a fan of stretching stuff out unless you've got a very good reason. I get the impression a lot of mainstream authors purposely stretch out books so that they're at least 300 pages, in the same way students will stretch out essays until they meet the length requirements of their teachers.
- It includes personal anecdotes. At the moment I'm under the impression that this is one of the best ways to relate information to other people in a memorable way.
- It includes useful information. IMO the most useful information in it is how to do well in a class while also disagreeing with the ideas the professor is advocating; that information (with anecdotes as examples) seems enough to justify the dollar and time investment for any potential reader who is having trouble with this (I've had trouble with it in the past, and I completely agree with Lee's advice; I also agree that it may not be obvious information to everyone). The other most useful information I found in it was the list of books, radio programs, news websites, and twitter feeds that Lee has found most informative.
