Publisher's Summary

“At a glance, Mike comes off like a 1980s teen movie bully on downers.” (Playboy Magazine)

“Mike Ma bragged about crashing a White House press conference.” (The Huffington Post)

Now, you can listen to his long-awaited first book. Harassment Architecture has been described as an almost plotless and violent march against what the author calls the "lowerworld". Written in many small to medium sized chapters, it's the story of a man who aims to usher in collapse. He's sick on his surroundings, bound by them, but still seeking the way out.

Author is a whining little b#&$h

This is doomer progaganda. The author needs to step out of his house and into the gym.
Yeah the world isnt in the best shape, but this was just obnoxious. I would probably rather listen to any other cookie cutter self-help than listen to this again.

Good book

Harrassment architecture by Mike ma is an essential read for anyone who can read, or hear in this case. This book has ruined my taste and overall patience for other books because I only want to read books like this and it's sequel.

ObnoxiouslyAntagonizing, PhilosophicallyProvoking

The protagonist is disturbed. That is to put it mildly. Whether he shares the author's values or not is unknown to me seeing as I jumped into this with no perspective or prior knowledge about Mike Ma besides the Wikipedia page on 'Accelerationism'. He makes various disclaimers and assurances that some of this book is him making fun of himself and that some things the book recommends or condones are not really recommendations at all. It's confusing as the narrator doesn't really distinguish between the author's notes and the story, I guess it would be different in print.
Chapters are short, typically anywhere from 30s to 4mins. The first 10 or so chapters had me wondering if I could get through the whole book. I wondered if I really wanted to. The protagonist's sociopathy disturbed me and the author's style was discomforting.
I persisted though and soon found myself addicted. The wild and Schizophrenic ideas conveyed made me want to see what was next.
After the first few chapters I started to recognise that the message being conveyed through the book was basically to shed my nihilism and apathy that is the socially accepted norm of this age and stand up for what I believe in, whatever that may be, in a meaningful and, if required, extreme way.
I realised that this is a dangerous book. It may prompt people to be less lazy and less conforming, it rejects token generosity and token idealism, all these are good things... but ...it almost directly endorses real idealism, extremism and physical acts that take advantage of people's expectation that everyone around them respects and upholds the safety provided by general societal etiquette.
This would be a great book to analyse as some people do with Shakespeare and other literature. But only by those with the moral assurity to withstand the bombardment of PTSD inciting social extremist concepts. It reminded me of Fight Club.
The second half of this book changes its tune subtly; slowly the author starts to tell you what it is that you should be standing up for and what you should be rebelling against: multiculturalism, government, technology, gluten, processed dairy, being overweight, ugliness, modern art... women.
Don't read this if you can't tolerate racism, homophobia or sexism.
The book reads like nothing I've read before and the closest parallel I can draw is that it conveys ideas and teachings like the letters to Christian groups included in the New Testament. It tries to teach and convert through a shocking main tale with frequent interruptions in the form of ramblings of the apparent fractured mind of the protagonist. One minute describing an interaction in a coffee shop, next ranting about the benefits of raw dairy or having a fit body, then moving on to insulting all women.
Crazy, crazy book. I have trouble imagining the mind that wrote it. He's either enlightened and this is dark satire, or he's insane and this is an insight into his mind.
I guess we'll see, or we won't.

Read some other stuff.

Terrible nihilistic nonsense. This book tries way too hard to be edgy. Bring a nothing to the table besides the frustrated musings of its author. Essentially advocating right accelerationism without really giving much reason for it besides that the world as it is annoys the author and he wants it gone. A rather shallow excuse to peddle extreme rhetoric under the guise of irony. You are better off reading Ted Kazynski’s work. At least he can write while essentially saying the same thing.

Makes you hate the modern world. . . And BMWs

This is, without a doubt, the single greatest piece of literature I have ever read. It is like someone took the thoughts of every, half intelligent, 20-something, aggressive and neglected male, and threw them down on paper. Each chapter seems to contradict the last, yet somehow make perfect sense. Each word grows more agressive and passionate, while also falling into a pit of agnostic carelessness. This is the perfect read for every man who feels abandoned by the modern world, for every man who needs a path forward through the hellscape, for every kid dreaming of a better world but unsure of how to describe it. Harrasment Architecture is the anthem of a generation lost to degeneracy.

Godforsaken Applebee’s

Started this work with cardio and sitting in Applebee’s and finished eating raw meat and contemplating the science of thicc girls. Mike and Shazam’s production are top notch and I eagerly await the next art work.

Taketh suck from this font of magic...

An endless tap of wisdom, power, and Lordly Chaos. This is the sound of royalty, this is the noise of mass extinction, this is the fire within and without. Born from fire, born into fire. Let the world resound to the marching feet of acceleration. Transcend. Ascend. Burn it all down.

This book is completely unique. Mike's words are powerful fanfare of the holy Archangel, and Shazam's delivery is the knife's edge of madness.

Weak.

Title & cover is evocative, but this book wasn't nearly dark enough to warrant it.

This book is the incoherent ramblings of a genuinely decent human being larping as a genocidal psychopath.

Might as well call the book "Ramblings of a Nationalist Faggot with an incongruent fetish for Primativism".

Not good

Beyond obnoxious, couldn't finish it. If you want to read the nihilism handbook, go right ahead.

THE VITALIST MANIFESTO WE SO DESPERATELY NEEDED

F.T. Marinetti weeps with joy! Expertly written and expertly narrated. The world would improve ever so slightly if this were blasted full volume in your local hipster coffee shop or “barcade”

This is a literature masterpiece.

It’s really no wonder that this is a number one bestseller two times in a row. The writing style and composure of this book is unparalleled buy anything else nowadays. This title is not afraid to dive deep into the controversial and I really like that about it. The narration by Shazam Watkins captivated me like no other book could.

Towards a world without sin

This has to be my new favourite book, it feels like I'm reading Hunter S Thompson if he was straight edge and had joined a cult (not a bad thing). This rebellion for the modern age, and nobody knows it yet. The performance from Shazam Watkins is incredible and he deserves all the praise in the world for his chilling and humorous delivery; good job man.
P.S. I really appreciated some of the John Maus lines that were appropriately scattered in, gg.
