His introduction is most interesting and strongly suggest you don't skip it!
Take this book and digest it and share it with others. It is well written and yes, unpleasant in parts- after all, showing us in an unflattering light is never easy to handle. We need to return to reasonable thoughts, actions, and just common sense. this is a good first step.
I’d love another running commentary by Piers. I knew who he was but have never followed him. Now I’m interested in his perspective about all the social ills we face. A daily commentary is an excellent platform.

Answer: no, not really. There are a few potential newspaper op-eds here. But a book? His basic point, that the 'woke' culture is unacceptable, is good. But did it need saying for 340 insistent pages? He does have some other points, but again he is like a dog with a bone, attacking ministers for their handling of The Virus without saying what he thinks they should have done (or did he want the country completely closed down?). This insistence made it an increasingly tiresome read. My copy is going to the charity shop.
Morgan begins by educating the reader of the historical origins of liberalism and then very quickly takes the reader on whistle stop journey, demonstrating how it's meaning has been hijacked and weaponised into a tool for the pusuit of viture-signalling cancel culture and wokedom.
It's a fascinating read, made more so by the fact that Morgan effortlessly lays-bare this growing insurgency for the reader to evaluate, whilst impervious to public derision and safe in the sanctity of Wake Up's 343 pages.
An easy five stars.
