In a manifesto that renders all previous attempts at political satire obsolete, The Chapo Guide to Revolution shows you that you don’t have to side with either the pear-shaped vampires of the right or the craven, lanyard-wearing wonks of contemporary liberalism. These self-described “assholes from the Internet” offer a fully ironic ideology for all who feel politically hopeless and prefer broadsides and tirades to reasoned debate.

As a childcare professional, I can say without a shred of doubt that this audiobook has opened new thought-channels in the cortex of every toddler and adolescent exposed to it. Their astral projections have begun to harmonize and provide Elon Musk with new ways to prevent the UAW from securing worker's rights to not be probed on and off the clock. Progress shows no signs of halting, and the DJIA has shot past Mount Kilimanjaro. Pour all of your money (including any deemed "critical" to your survival) "into" this "book" "immediately".

This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

The audio for this recording was horribly compressed. This is not an issue I've ever had before. The narrator also applies the same horrible "old man" voice for every elderly character, whether it suits them or not. The main character is absolutely insufferable, having no character flaws beyond being cocky. Otherwise, he's the best at literally everything he does. The story drags on for way too long considering how little happens, and the world isn't even terribly fleshed out by the long writing. Instead, it's just focused on the machinations of the miserable main character and his self-absorbed thoughts. This is the first audiobook I couldn't bring myself to finish due to content alone. The bad recording was just a cherry on top.
