He's brash, brilliant, and drawn to controversy like a moth to a flame. For decades, Mark Steyn has dazzled audiences around the world with his raucous wit and brutal honesty. Whether he's sounding off on the tyranny of political correctness, the existential threat of Islamic extremism, the "nationalization" of the family, or the "near suicidal stupidity" of America's immigration regime, Steyn is always provocative - and often laugh-out-loud hilarious.

I don't normally like compilations, it seems cheating a bit, but this was well worth it. He makes the case for the existential threat that western civilization ignores. Many probably won't listen, too bad for us all.

A very good story and story universe. I enjoy listening to the narrator, he helps make the story.
