SJWs Always lie in audiobook

It took a few false starts, but the third time proved to be the charm and we finally managed to get it done. I'm happy to be able to announce that SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police is now available in audiobook format.

The audiobook is narrated by Bob Allen, who did his customary bang-up job, and is 6 hours and 49 minutes long. You can listen to a sample there. If you've only read the Kindle version, you might be interested in picking up the paperback version, which is available too.

SJWAL has been Castalia's bestseller for most of the last year, but that appears likely to change, as MAGA Mindset, by Mike Cernovich, is doing very well. Mike recently reported that the paperback contained an error, but just to be clear, that was only in the CreateSpace version that was out briefly before we managed to get our version into distribution. The kindle version, the paperbacks from us, and the new hardcover which is still in the process of being listed by Amazon, all contain the fixed version of the text.

Regardless, Mike is tearing it up again. He'd probably have #1, #2, and #3 in the category if the audiobook was available from Audible yet. Note that the Kindle price shown below is misleading; it is actually $7.99.

I bought the kindle version and while I'm not a fan of audio books usually I think I might give this a shot. SJWs Always Lie really is an important work, it's amazing how often you find references to its themes being echoed across the alt-right (even from people who claim not to like VD).

It's a very clear text on how and why people from any movement infiltrate and destroy organizations. It's good as intended, but it will also give you insight into how and why most organizations get parasitized; and by laying out how the morbidity kicks in, and how the infiltrators operate, it will give you tools for recognizing and eliminating the infection of ANY parasitic ideology in ANY organization.

I wouldn't even call myself alt-right and I consider it mandatory reading.

I vehemently disagree with about half of what Vox says here on his blog, but the book is 100% on the mark, and the blog is time well spent as well.

I suspect that about 90 percent of the Dread Ilk would have said the same at one point or another. Anyhow, I appreciate your thoughts on the book.

You said it was a diverse crowd here, and the breadth of thought is one of the reasons it's interesting. It's a kind of jovial rolling intellectual bar-fight. Excellent stuff.

Wouldn't this also count as the gender studies category?

I remember reading about the "bi-factional ruling party" maybe eight years ago and thinking, "He's off his nut!"

Except not so much. As with many other things about which I disagreed with Vox, it turned out he was several steps ahead of me. I still have areas of disagreement, but I have learned to reserve judgment, examine the evidence, keep an open mind and keep reading. Overall, this blog is a huge net positive.

Yeah, the thing is, even when I disagree, he's bloody incisive even then.

Some of his conclusions on race would, in any other writer, be walk-away stuff; but I keep reading because it's a dead cert that either his data or his reasoning is crystal-clear. With some writers when you think they're wrong it's frustrating, because their reasoning is so opaque; but disagreeing with Vox has, so far, been very educational.

I'm not picking arguments with him in real-time because I am sure he's been over it all many times before and could do without the aggravation. But it's enlightening to read someone who comes to such divergent conclusions but does so with clarity. It's worthless to disagree with people who are stupid; they don't make you go back, verify your data, check your reasoning, question your bias. Just reading Vox' stuff makes you do exactly that.

And to return to the book at hand, that clarity is on display in SJW's Always Lie; but also subtlety in the presentation of rhetoric, and a very sharp eye for patterns of human behaviour. It really does achieve excellence, and I'm not sure he broke a sweat writing it.

After all the years have gone by reading this blog and related contents, SJWAL is the best product I've come across, and truth be told, it is by far imho. The only rival that I could compare it to is Chapter 4 of RGD "Nobody Knows Anything" which I believe is one of the single greatest works on economics ever penned (I truly believe that) - and I've read a lot on economics; in fact I have often wished I would have majored in straight economics or finance in school. Anyways.

The SJWAL concept that "an apology is usually the equivalent of a confession" has revolutionized my thinking and helped me in key situations that have had absolutely nothing whatsoever do to with combating SJW-ism. It's pure black-belt level intellectual jujitsu, one's opinions on the SJW issue notwithstanding.

Side note: I have not read MAGA yet, but intend to do so.

Fantastic!

Hey, how long does it generally take to record the good audiobooks? Is there a rule of thumb like "an hour in the studio to 5 minutes of final product"? Just curious.

When will the full audiobook of MAGA Mindset be out? I was disappointed that the YouTube recording only covered part of it.

I would prefer an reasonably priced Audible add-on to the Kindle book if that were an option.

Too bad SJWs Always Lie was full price, even with ownership of the Kindle Book, but I have plenty of Audible credits right now.

It's already been submitted, I believe. So, probably two weeks, three tops.

Sounds good.

I will get it when it comes out then.
