Publisher's Summary

Suicide, anxiety, and depression are on the rise in college campuses! What should we do?

Greg Lukianoff and Jonathon Haidt expose the reasons behind the increase of anxiety, depression, and suicide on college campuses today. They expose the three great untruths that have been indoctrinated into our young people through parenting and education and how policy has shut down the right to free speech, critical thinking, and social integration.

After an explanation as to the foundation of the problems, Lukianoff and Haidt shed light on psychological truths, parenting skills, suggestions for positive changes in the education system, and step-by-step instructions for cognitive behavioral therapy.

  • Safety: what it is and why it isn't necessarily the best option
  • Exactly what is contributing to the rise of mental illness in young people (It'll shock you)

  • And much more!

Machine gun narration nearly ruins fine book.

Allan Bloom's book The Closing of the American Mind was one of the formative works of my youth. Bloom's critique impaired my youthful, unfounded, know-it-all confidence and set me on a path of lifelong study. I expected to enjoy reviewing the book and deepening my understanding of it by listening to it as an audiobook. And if the Audible app for iPhone offered a narration speed in between 0.75x and 1.0x, perhaps 0.9x, one could slow Hurt down to a speed at which one might be able to understand, follow, and think about the difficult thoughts he rattles off. However, as matters stand, I do not know how long I will be able to endure Hurt's rapid, mumbly performance.

interesting but contains a lot of fluff

very interesting though it seems filled with fluff, and could've been shortened with a couple of hours and still kept its message.

Allan Bloom is a prophet

I used to see this book as a diagnosis of the past, but if you want to understand the present political and social situation of the west, you'll read this book.

I’m not one to buy hardcover, but this needs to be on the bookshelf to go back to again and again.

essential reading

Insightful, erudite and is obviously greatly influential on the thinkers of the early 21st century.

My new favorite book

I've probably listened to this 7 or 8 times in just the last couple of months. This seriously has everything you need in a book. Already have seen amazing changes in my life since applying the concepts discussed within it. Do yourself a favor and get this book.

Good listen

Could use less of the background music and maybe improve the audio so it doesn’t sound 1960’s.

Can't recommend enough!

Intriguing and so helpful! A must-read for parents, teachers, & admin. They make compelling arguments for the trends in higher ed and politics, and they weave information in ways that keep you hooked as a listener.
