An the challenging of their most base prejudices it has always been asier and lucrative to sell tickets for the ghost train than the speak your weight machine As host of a lively political radio phone in on the talk station LBC James O Brien has achieved huge prominence through challenging the racists islamophobes hard brexiteers and HOMOPHOBES WHO COMPRISE SO MANY OF THE TYPICAL CALLERS who comprise so many of the typical callers his show Several clips of these arguments have gone viral and transcripts of those clips make up a large chunk of How to be Right And it is here that O Brien s book loses its way and much of the sympathy of the reader By reproducing transcripts of debates with some of his most vociferously intolerant and blinkered callers James O Brien might think he is creating a guide to how racist and bigoted views can be confronted and defeated through the sheer remorselessness of liberal logic But reading a verbatim reproduction of O Brien running rings around some idiot like Jack from Croyden leaving the poor caller dissected like a frog in a biology lesson undermines the author s claim that he ultimately has Les Rois Mages empathy for the deluded saps who phone his show As a device it comes across as self aggrandising and despite the author s protestations to the contrary slightly smug leaving the reader feeling as browbeaten as O Brien s hapless callers When O Brien focuses his ire on the political and medialites that have poisoned the well of public opinion there is much in How to be Right than is reflective and persuasive But this is a book that would have been vastly improved if significantly shortened by dispensing with the reproduced radio transcripts and replacing them with links to James O Brien s YouTube channel I thought How To Be Right was Manhunting excellent It is readable thoughtful intelligent and humaneJames O Brien writes very well indeed Drawing on hisxperience as a print journalist and then as a long standing and very successful radio phone in host he dissects the prejudices myths and downright lies which pollute our debates so badly these days What is so striking though is that he tries to believe that people are sincere but have been misled by powerful politicians media outlets and the like so he is less concerned with winning the argument than with trying to get people actually to analyse and justify their positions As he says and illustrates well with transcripts from his shows the absurd the vitriolic and the hateful rhetoric which is now so common almost always crumbles in the face of simple uestions like Why do you think that or Can you give me a concrete Trauée Rebecca Kean example or How is that actually affecting you He won t let go of these andxplores the logical conclusions of what people say they want to do It s refreshing to hear genuine rationality and reality rather than an The Ghostfaces exchange of pre digested unexamined clich s and his analysis of where we are and its possible future conseuences is very shrewdThis is a brief intellectually stimulating andnjoyable if often slightly depressing read I can heartily recommend it to anyone who values genuine fact and rationality in a world where alternative facts and Le Grand Silence echo chamber discourse are becoming and dominantMy thanks to PenguinEbury for an ARC via NetGalley This was weird I totally agree with James o Brien s opinions so I thought I would have liked this book than I did As it is I didnjoy it but I didn t love it He came across as slightly patronising he seems to think hat the only reason people hate immigrants or find LGBT folk unpleasant or voted Brexit is because they ve been drip fed a diet of low level hatred for years and years by the Daily Mail And while that is certainly a factor and while I think that the Daily Mail is horrific beyond measure the author seems to overlook the fact that THESE PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF THINKING FOR THEMSELVES They have brains in their heads They don t have to believe Les pieds nickeles sur beta 2 everything they read Maybe they re just arseholes And while I would be very happy to see the Daily Mail banished to the depths of hell for allternity maybe we should be ncouraging people to you know think for themselves O Brien is such a sane voice in today s increasingly toxic world refusing to accept the often unthinking inanities of sane voice in today s increasingly toxic world refusing to accept the often unthinking inanities of incensed by Muslims migrants Remainers uppity women feminists gaytrans people Trump haters millenials the young in general and just about anyone lse who doesn t fit into some kind of narrow definition of us he subjects and importantly force. Swathe of the British population was persuaded that their failures were the fault of foreigners that unisex lavatories threatened their peace of mind and that ‘all Muslims’ must somehow apologise for terror attacks by xtremists I have tried to dissuade them and sometimes succeeded The challenge is to distinguish sharply between the people who told lies and the people whose only offence was to believe them’James O’Brien. Olk who hold these views by using common sense a healthy amount of knowledge and intelligence without debasing the listeners and callers level of intelligence He does it cleverly and most arguments hence I said most he can win over By Challenging These Populist Views Views That challenging these populist views views that worldwide and allowed Trump to become the President of the US The mass media has an right wing agenda and in this current climate we live is uite scary regarding the hold they have over popular opinionJames O Brien is a healthy dose of fresh air in our current populist world Only by challenging these well stablished ignorant views in a professional sometimes uite humorous manner then he does make you and the listeners make you think just think a little bit about the agenda our media allied with Capitalism has in almost thought control amongst the majority of the population again as I stated allowing Trump of which there is chapter on him in the book to become POTUS We undoubtedly live in uite dangerous times and it is only people such as James O Brien and his talk show slot on LBC radio that provide an antibiotic to the bigotry people hold ven if it is innocently held Just by challenging these callers ideas and knee jerk reactions again as I stated by using common sense and a degree of intelligence without becoming too condescending then maybe just maybe we can make people see through the lies they are being sold via the common media and right wing journalism He makes a difference He also has a youtube channel as well which is worth a glance at to see him at the radio office usually becoming frustrated I am going to give this 5 stars because it was a healthy antidote to all the troubles our world faces today A lot of this could be considered preaching to the choir and many of the radio show transcripts come across as a bit sneering and condescending It s actually better when he leaves his radio show behind in any case all the clips are available on youtube and just writes from his own perspective The later chapters on the age gap and millennials are the strongest as he tackles wider issues and their socio conomic causes and conseuencesO Brien s main point is a good one that many prejudices and ill informed views are never challenged and when they are they Soldados de Pern: Historia crtica sobre los montoneros evaporate almost immediately The title is a little misleading as this isn t a how to guide The main lesson is to do your homework and uestionverything I wanted to give this book four stars I like it It makes me think and makes me uestion myself But in places author felt too patronizing It nearly took off one of the stars but thenwhilst contemplating over this book I happened to overhear completely different radio show with three callers in a row whose arguments made me stuck somewhere between incurable facepalm and anger And you know what James O Brien deserves not only four or five he deserves much stars For patience and for the will to make conversations with people he will never agree with A short read but very good Unfortunately those who should read this book never willThe audiobook is narrated by the author and I d recommend it also Reading How to be Right is a curious La saga des Baker: Saga intgrale experience I agree with just aboutvery agreement and very word uttered by James O Brien throughout this short polemic about fake news the normalisation of hate speech and the populist assault on objective truth In most respects O Brien comes across as a pillar of liberal minded common sense So why did I find myself so freuently but intensely irritated by it How to be Right is in a way two different books soldered onto ach other one infinitely satisfying and convincing than the other In the most compelling sections of the book James O Brien trains his sights on the charlatans demagogues and shameless hate peddlers who have done so much to corrupt political debate whether in the US the UK or across Europe over to corrupt political debate whether in the US the UK or across Europe over last two decades He is Fundamentals of Marketing excellent at analysing how a debased media has accelerated this assault on our institutions and values its modern day business model predicated on the notion that comforting lies deliver clicks viewers listeners and profits than uncomfortable truths O Brien is particularlyxcoriating about British media outlets like The Daily Mail a publication purposefully designed to make their readers angry and fearful not peaceable and thoughtful and he Atlas militaire et stratgique : Menaces, conflits et forces armes dans le monde expertly traces how they have created a medianvironment dependent on the stoking of people s worst fears rather th.
