Publisher's Summary

The creators of the cult-hit podcast Chapo Trap House deliver a manifesto for everyone who feels orphaned and alienated - politically, culturally, and economically - by the bloodless Wall Street centrism of the Democrats and the lizard-brained atavism of the right: there is a better way, the Chapo Way.

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.

Learn the “secret” history of the world, politics, media, and everything in-between that they don’t want you to know and chart a course from our wretched present to a utopian future where one can post in the morning, game in the afternoon, and podcast after dinner without ever becoming a poster, gamer, or podcaster.

The Chapo Guide to Revolution features biographies of important thought leaders and the 10 new laws that govern Chapo Year Zero (everyone gets a dog, billionaires are turned into Soylent, and logic is outlawed). If you’re a fan of sacred cows, prisoners being taken, and holds being barred, then this book is not for you. However, if you feel disenfranchised from the political and cultural nightmare we’re in, then Chapo, let’s go....

Genius - Even better that they read their own work

This book is better than America the book that many of us loved 15 years ago because we're stupid. Now let's hope the sequel discusses the truth about Syria.

Oh hell yeaaa

I’ve been waiting for this to come out for so long and I’ve gotta say it doesn’t disappoint. Chapo does it again with their absolutely bleak, completely demented, chaotic style that you can’t find anywhere else except for the scattered remnants of now defunct web forums and ephemeral discord chats that inevitably fall apart because of infighting. These guys are our only hope and, honestly, we’re all going to die. At least it’s going to be fun.

Completely Critical to Childhood Development

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".

The Chapo Gang Writes A Damn Book

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

Chapo has! But is Chapo for you?

If you’ve ever used the phrase “irony poisoning” then Chapo is for you.

If watching the latest clip of some news pundit “DESTROYING” a guest has every left you feeling not only hollow but with the sneaking suspicion that they are all in on a system rigged to not give a flying shit about you, your loved ones or anyone in your community, Chapo is for you.

If you’re the kind of person who feels left out by “the discourse” (the ghoulish politics of the right, the toothless response politics of Democrats, and the pundit class that praise every move of both) then Chapo is 100% for you.

In all honesty, Chapo is amazing because they have voice to all the things that left me feeling alienated politically and each week I get to listen to people who are just as outraged, horrified and ready to crack jokes just as “we’ll meet again” is starting to play somewhere far off in the distance. I can’t thank all of them enough for how empowered and activated it’s made me feel.

In sum, this book is solid and funny guide to some good politics people, the meat on the bones of the spooky Skelton that is Chapo, read it and don’t forget to leave 12 copies in your local Costco (This is called D’Souzaing)

Perfect

This book taught me the rigid revolutionary mindset young gamers need. Important rules like clean your room and NoFap have given me the virility necessary to march upstairs and tell my step dad Gary to stop having loud sex with my mom while I'm trying to game. The revolution has begun!

Definitely worth a read!

Absolutely fantastic, a light in the seemingly hopeless neo-liberal hell future. Perfectly blending humour and horrible truths of the past and present, into a really engaging romp. Well paced and informative, not a dull moment.

Hilarious and insightful guide to our nightmare.

Exactly what every despairing, exhausted young person needs to hear/read to understand and challenge the madness of late capitalism.
