Madness of Mad People Might be a Sufficient Title.

I was hoping to learn something that I did not know which might have directed more anthropological and behavioral mechanics behind the subject matter. Instead, quite a bit of the book felt as though I was listening to opinionated commentary on YouTube video after YouTube video. It would have been good to peg some of the opinions with historical comparisons of how crowd think has influenced previous generations and probe how ideologies can become widespread in society. Instead of stimulating thought, 'The Madness of Crowds' felt more like an aide-memoire of recent controversies in relation to gender, race and identity.

Heavy Injection of Racial Bias.

Couldn't listen to much more of this beyond the early victimisation and disempowered position of people based on race. Not what I expected.

from the sample I expected to listen to some good old fashioned positive words but it became a torrential and tedious offering of religious piffle.

Soldiered through but found it to be a re invention of Eastern Philosophy with little to no references to fact or research.
