Book is a dense read in the first section on race. In the second section on gender MacDonald relaxes and the narrative moves quicker. In the last section on universities she hits full stride when comparing what is as opposed to what should be. It is in the last section that an alternative to university is revealed by way of Great Courses – something I’ll soon looking into.

The strength of MacDonald’s presentation comes by keying on weak diversity culture thoughts and practices. Those weaknesses are brought to light with sharp analysis, common sense questions, and several dry observations.

The answers to her questions are obvious: by asking she illuminates why “the diversity king has no clothes”.

Mac Donald raises some valid (and some invalid) and important concerns. Unfortunately, as with much of her previous work, Mac Donald's arguments suffer from her polemical style of thinking and writing.

Great book. Really breaks down how toxic the radical left has become with their forced diversity. They believe it’s okay to judge people based on their race and gender. They divide everyone into little groups, yet they claim Trump has divided us. It’s classic divide and conquer. Please stop falling for it. The other reviewer likely didn’t read the book and is a NPC.

Notice they attack the messenger and not the message? God forbid prople read a book and make up theirs own mind, especially in the age of fake news and useless opinion pieces.
