Publisher's Summary

What has happened to the American spirit? We've gone from "Give me liberty, or give me death!" to "Take care of me, please." Our colleges were once bastions of free speech; now they're bastions of speech codes. Our culture once rewarded independence; now it rewards victimhood. Parents once taught their kids how to fend for themselves; now, any parent who tries may get a visit from the police.

In Not a Day Care, Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and author of the viral essay, "This Is Not a Day Care. It's a University!" takes a hard look at what's happening around the country - including the demand for "safe spaces" and trigger warnings at universities like Yale, Brandeis, and Oberlin - and digs in his heels against the sad and dangerous infantilization of the American spirit.

The book comes from a fair Christian perspective

I am not a Christian, but I agree with the main thrust of this book. It is well worth the listen. I believe the author wishes to be fair with everyone and would not discriminate against someone with a different religion. he is mostly discussing the illogical of the new anti free speech movement, AKA label it "hate speech" then shut it down argument. He is promoting honest debate with courtesy for others.

I did not like the narrator's style or tone, but the subject is so important and the analysis so good I can overlook that.
Although I have been critical of some things the main message gets my positive approval. I recommend this book highly.

Builds to Let Down

The first half of the book was great discussing how much of a joke college has become and the consequences of raising a society of pussies that need to hug teddy bears because they cannot handle the real world. Sadly, the book diminished in the second half and basically turns into a sermon. Would have been much better without the preaching.

a must-read for our current times

Once again Dr Piper has the courage to say what needs to be said and what must be said. Like too many others I've witnessed firsthand the devastating effect of sending a student to a progressive leaning state college without continued parental involvement and guidance. Even a young man raised in a loving home with two parents who attended church on a regular basis was not immune from indoctrination . He entered the University as a highly decorated Eagle Scout and graduated as a gender fluid Marxist.

Myonly issue with this book was the reader, John McClain. If I had to venture a guess I would say every word in this book goes against his beliefs - it almost came across as a snarky tone. Therefore I recommend reading this book rather than listening to this book.

Beware! For FREEDOM lovers and none else!

If you are not one of the few that actually loves truth and believes that it is only through the truth that "We the People..." can be free, then stay away from this book; it will cause you brain damage!

Plain Biblically Based Truth

Read this book. It's great and insightful. It speaks to many of the issues our country is facing due to laxidadical parenting coupled with the inflated ego and narcissism of today's youth.
