I first became aware of JP when he ran afoul of the Canadian thought police over the use of of all things pronouns. As time went by I tried several times to listen to his lectures but got lost in the excessive verbiage, contradictory positions and word salad. As someone with postgrad qualifications I'm used to academic speak so it wasn't that JP was on a level that was above my understanding. This isn't a hit job. VD quotes extensively from JP and lays out why he is wrong or the miss direction in play. 3 take aways for me 1 JP is a extremely troubled person 2 He from his own actions isn't a good role model for young men 3 He hasn't read or has a poor grasp on many of the subjects he pontificates on It's hard to discover flaws in people we look up to so don't dismiss this book out of reflex, give it a read and decide for yourself.
In my youth I read at least a hundred self help books, many of which had the theme of "speak into existence what you want". It never seemed to work quite well though, but I never figured out why, or why it was deemed to be a necessary factor in success. Vox made the link between the occult vis-a-vis spoken spells and Jordan Peterson's 'be precise in his you how you talk'. Then it hit me; the name it and claim it cult is essentially occult incantation. I guess I'm no good at casting spells.
Within the first page Vox manages to plug 3 of his other books and defends the "Jewish Question" conspiracy theory. If you like flat earth/faked moon landings and have more money than sense then you may enjoy this book.
