Editorial Reviews

In the nonfiction audiobook The Authoritarians, psychologist Bob Altemeyer shares his research on the aggressive and hostile nature of the authoritarian personality and the rise of the Right-Wing Authoritarian personality in the United States. He wrote the book in 2006, during George W. Bush’s second term as president. In a clear and direct voice, Altemeyer performs his own fascinating work. He details how authoritarianism is destroying traditional conservatism and what this means for the future of American politics and democracy.

Wat a waste!

Listened to over an hour and couldnt stand it anymore. Author is a boring propogandist left wing drone and doesnt deserve any professional title next to his name. Don't waste your money!!

Not even for free.

If you enjoy this book you are an authoritarian and incapable of reasonable formation of an individual opinion. I will complete this book only because I paid for it (thankfully not much) and I am keeping hope alive that the author has some point in writing this book besides bashing people with whom he doesn't agree.
