Of the three dominant ideologies of the 20th century - fascism, communism, and liberalism - only the last remains. This has created a peculiar situation in which liberalism's proponents tend to forget that it is an ideology and not the natural end-state of human political evolution. As Patrick Deneen argues in this provocative book, liberalism is built on a foundation of contradictions.

This book will challenge your ideas on Liberal philosophy and government. The idea of the end of time, that Liberalism was going to be the end after the Berlin Wall. Well now is facing many oppositions and splits to its order

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

Nabeel’s journey is a long and eye opening look at a Muslim struggling with his religion. His family is the best part of the whole, it shows the differences between Eastern and western upbringing and reason why leaving the faith is so hard. I hope Nabeel’s family the best since he pass away in September. Still an amazing stories that will test your faith

Social justice warriors have plagued mankind for more than 150 years, but only in the last 30 years has their ideology become dominant in the West. Having invaded one institution of the cultural high ground after another, from corporations and churches to video games and government, there is nowhere that remains entirely free of their intolerant thought and speech policing.

What did you like or dislike?
I really like how Vox goes into the examples of how others including himself either fail or succeed to the thought police known as SJWs. I also really enjoy the steps that one should take to battles these types of people that want to control different organisations and turn it into a nanny state where different opinion to the overall goal of these SJWs is not welcome.
I also must give credit to the speaker for a great job of translation the material to audio. It may sounds silly often the speaker can have an input to the source and can the way one thinks and enjoy the book. I think he did a great job.

The only thing I would of like but the author even states in the book that it is not really imp

Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

Any additional comments?

This was my third book I have listen to on the science of how carbs and fats affect on your body differently. I have listen to Wheat Belly and Keto Clarity, they both had much information and were entertaining in their own right. I felt that Grain Brain offer much more information on how you can improve the body and more facts from research on the brain and yet I found it easier to listen to. Wheat Belly was better for the information on the harm of Wheat and it's history in civilization but lack other information on food and excise that this book brings which can improve your health.

I love most the learning the how the type of food affect the gut and how from the gut it comes to affect the brain and the body. It warns the reader that their lifestyle choices could be increasing their risk of a shorter life with more pain and suffering. The author has lot to say about the medical industry (and even a little bit on education system) and how many in the profession try to treat problems with drugs and surgery without first trying to understand the cause. As they say prevention is better then cure. If you can get anything out of this book it should help give you the knowledge for you to lower your health risk, get tested for gluten sensitivity, cut down on carbs and sugars and how to improve your eating habits.

Never before has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller examined so persuasively the long-range consequences of childhood abuse on the body. Using the experiences of her patients along with the biographical stories of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller shows how a child's humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will manifest itself as adult illness - be it cancer, stroke, or other debilitating diseases.

This book has some important insights into the world of the pain that most of us have been through in our early upbringing. Alice Miller does not hold back from what she would call child abuse. It can be at times hard to listen to, as the book brought back memories and feeling of the pain and shame suffered at the hands of my mother. I most enjoy listening to other people stories in the book and how some over come the shame work while it sad to others continue to down a path of suffering that outlasted their parents.
