I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The Courage to Be Disliked

Cover of The Courage to Be Disliked.

I strongly disliked many parts of this book. The writing is obnoxious, self-righteous, pseudo-Socratic without ever coming close. I fundamentally disagree with a lot of its premises, and it’s in many ways /r/wowthanksimhealed material. This book is very punchable.

At the same time it has been extremely useful to me, in an immediate and actionable way, and I’m very glad I’ve read it. Books that changed my life get five stars on here, and it undeniably did that.

I only found this thread on Twitter afterwards, and it contains most of the book without all the obnoxiousness: https://twitter.com/visakanv/status/1037715339314847747
