The culture of “safety” and its intolerance of opposing viewpoints has left many young people anxious and unprepared for adult life. Lukianoff and Haidt offer a comprehensive set of reforms that will strengthen young people and institutions, allowing us all to reap the benefits of diversity, including viewpoint diversity. This is a book for anyone who is confused by what’s happening on college campuses today, or has children, or is concerned about the growing inability of Americans to live and work and cooperate across party lines.

I really loved the insights in this book. Not Conservative or Liberal, just honest. Both sides will be uncomfortable and both will have moments to cheer. If you read the whole book you can't help but be impressed.

  • Throw Out Fifty Things

  • Clear The Clutter, Find Your Life

Throw Out Fifty Things is truly an eye-opener. According to Blanke, our lives are so filled with junk from the past--from dried up tubes of crazy glue to old grudges--that's it's a wonder we can get up in the morning, never mind go to work, care for our children and parents, and just put one foot in front of the other. Blanke wants to start a movement of people across America throwing out 50 things (magazines count as one!) that will help liberate us from the stuff - both physical and mental - that clutters our lives.

Where does Throw Out Fifty Things rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It wasn't the best book I have read in the last year but one that I have decided to take to heart and do. I'd say out of the 35 i've read in the last year, it'd be in the top 50%

What other book might you compare Throw Out Fifty Things to and why?

Goals: How to get everything you want by Brian Tracy

Did Gail Blanke do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, the stories were great but I would have preferred a more dynamic/conversational reading.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

This wouldn't be a film
