The liberal media machine did everything they could to keep this book out of your hands. Now, finally, DANGEROUS, the most controversial book of the decade, is tearing down safe spaces everywhere.
MILO YIANNOPOULOS is an award-winning journalist, a New York Times-bestselling author, an international political celebrity, a free speech martyr, an accomplished entrepreneur, a hair icon, a penitent and, to the annoyance of his many enemies, an exceedingly happy person. He is the most censored, most lied-about man in America. But he is also somehow one of the most sought-after speakers in the world, invited by foreign governments, wealthy individuals and even the occasional courageous private company to share his unique blend of laughter and war. Milo lurches from improbable triumph to improbable triumph, loathed by the Left and establishment Republicans alike. His first book, Dangerous, sold over 200,000 copies, despite never being reviewed in any major publication. Milo lives in Florida with his husband, John.

⭐ First off, I am a librarian who never cared about Milo until I began seeing blurbs about Dangerous in Publisher’s Weekly (bimonthly book review magazine for libraries/booksellers). They all raised the issue of the morality of purchasing Dangerous. Is it professionally responsible? Is it censorship not to? (Yes.) As an information professional I have always been very interested in intellectual freedom issues and am a card carrying member of the Freedom to Read Foundation so as soon as my industry colleagues began to tell me how dangerous Dangerous would be, I knew I had to read it as soon as possible. And so I started following Yiannopoulos for literally no other ideological reason.Then the book deal was cancelled by S&S, my immediate reaction was that he would self-publish it anyways. This ended up being true. Despite still having a platform and fan base, the cancellation put a chilling effect on the publicity of the book. Many libraries simply do not purchase self-published material on principle because it has not been professionally reviewed. That decreases access for anyone who is either financially unable to purchase the book on their own, anyone who may not have access to Amazon.com, or anyone who is interested but not committed to buying it. The interested but not committed are the most relevant group here, because hearing someone in their own words is more valuable to learning about them than what other people say about them. Which is exactly why I watched that entire infamous “pedophilia” podcast myself and came to my own conclusion (being: what he said was indeed strange but I followed his logic easily). Both Non-Pedophiles AND Pedophiles still have 1st Amendment rights anyways. I emailed my old Intellectual Freedom & Censorship professor from grad school about the cancellation and her response was that Milo already had a platform so it’s not the same type of insidious censorship. I respect this professor but I disagreed with her opinion.I have faced book challenges at my job. People have called for me to be fired whilst rampaging through the library, screaming and beating themselves over a book they allowed their child to read. Censorship sucks and defending the 1st Amendment is hard but ultimately always worth it. It is important to be mindful that censorship can come from both the political right and the political left. It seemed a bit ironic to me that all these alleged advocates of free speech were refusing to get a book called Dangerous because it would be too dangerous for people to read. I ordered the book on July 5, 2017 and read it within 48 hours.Like I said, I have little to no experience with Milo so I fact checked a lot of his statements and citations. I soon found that they were all legitimate and ended up putting 2-3 sociopolitical books on my to-read list. I read rather widely…for example I have read Donald Trump and I plan on reading Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book. I’ll read anyone’s book to gain insight into their mind. Trump was pretty unbearable to read – no matter my view on his politics – the writing was bad. Milo was more invigorating to read than Trump, probably because he is by trade a professional word slinging journalist. I would also recommend reading this entire book in Milo’s super-gay voice; it makes the experience all the more enjoyable.My final point is this person that the entire world tells me is an untrustworthy dangerous lunatic is in reality…not that. It is important to note that I would not have known this at all if not for having the opportunity to read his own words in concentrated book format. Shock value Breitbart articles are a different reading experience entirely. I’m not saying I agree with literally all the things Milo Yiannopoulos says or stands for but that doesn’t matter. I disagree with many things many writers have to say but it does not mean I will refuse to read them. Dangerous is a decent book and censorship is dangerous.
⭐ This was a quick read and shorter than it initially appeared because the back section is all links to sources to back up Milo’s assertions. I would love to give this to some of my friends’ kids, but I doubt they would allow it in their houses as it goes against their ideas and that is not allowed. Even so already I am seeing the seeds of conservative rebellion in their little teenaged selves.I learned about Milo before he was well known. My son who spends lots of time on the internet told me about him. My son is part of the quiet conservative rebellion brewing among young people in our country. He is very quiet about his views because even in a very conservative state any Trump support or conservatism is just not acceptable in public. My state, Utah, went Trump despite every stop being pulled out to prevent his election. I did not know a single open Trump supporter, all of us were underground, and as a result many were shocked he got as many votes as he did despite the whole Evan McMullin fiasco. Over and over I would hear people say they did not know anyone who voted for Trump because anyone who at any point voiced public support would be casigated. The most diehard Trump supporter I know is an illegal Guatemalan. She told me She did not want the USA to become what she left even if she got deported and had to go back. My lawyer, my doctor, my mortgage broker all successful women liked Trump.
⭐ I may not agree with every word Milo says, but this book is absolutely critical in protecting free speech. I had to get this book to see for myself.. Was there some kind of secret truth in this book that a major political party really doesn’t want us to see? Why else would they pull a book from a gay Brit?As soon as I started reading I was blown away! Really nothing offensive or “dangerous” per se but it’s like a huge chest of truth and wisdom that couldn’t have been produced by anyone other than Milo.Liberal or Conservative, whether you agree with the author or not, read this if you are not offended by the truth and if you want to open your mind to a side you were unfamiliar with.
⭐ One thing I’ve long said is that without fail, Mr. Yiannopoulous works a room far better than most of the entertainment industry. Dangerous is really no different. Much as he & I disagree as far as Donald Trump is concerned, I completely respect his right to express his opinion. That aside, he clearly isn’t afraid to ask some tough questions… actually, no, they’re not really tough—they just tend to make certain people uncomfortable. Guess what? No one has grown or broadened their views by surrounding themselves who are exactly like them.The topics that I found most interesting namely related to Black Lives Matter, the conundrum that is Leslie Jones & the irony of UC Berkeley going from its roots in, ‘I may not agree with what you’re saying, but I’ll fight like hell for your right to say it,’ to well… the exact opposite.Needless to say, Milo’s (and most of my) opinions & questions surrounding BLM will not be popular with many. In any event, he raises questions that I’ve asked numerous times. As he readily admits, there’s not an argument of racism’s existence—it’s when/how the term is applied that leaves a big question mark. How is it racist to question? Is this not how people learn? How is it racist to disagree with the behaviors exhibited by many BLM ‘activists’? I promise, I don’t own a white robe, im not gearing up for the next klan rally, but one thing I do frequently is ask questions.History buffs & intellectuals tend to question because we want to learn. Simple as that. When someone says/does something to try to make 2 + 2 = 6, I’m going to wonder if you omitted some Information.I can’t tell you I agree with everything stated in, Dangerous,’ but that was never my objective in reading it. If I am to be an informed citizen—not a citizen of popular opinion, but one who reads often, retains information from multiple sources & then constructs their opinion, I’m going to need to read things beyond the latest ‘think piece’ from a magazine or publication that only publishes one point of view, right?All in all, there are good points in this book. You may hate Mr. Yiannopoulous. He may drive you utterly mad. Yet if you have an open mind, there are plenty of topics that will make you think. For this reason alone, I found ‘Dangerous’ to be worthwhile, not to mention a book that can spawn some interesting discussions within a broad-minded group of people.
⭐ Dangerous… the stuff of dreams… Freedom. Honesty. And so much moreMilo. Thank God for Milo. He is quite possibly the most important celebrity of this period in history. He is courageous, funny, gay as all get out, and most of all, a true believer in the freedom to be, do, live, and say whatever you please, so long as doing so does not involve actual, physical violence against others.It’s a sad thing that the savior of American conservativism and libertarian thought is a gay man from Britain. Well, even if we wouldn’t admit it openly, we all knew the RINOs and neocons were not going to save us for they have neither the courage nor desire to upset their own pork barrels.Milo, if you read this, I want to buy you a beer. Not some liberal craft beer made from fair trade grain, organic gluten free sustainably grown boutique hops, and the honey from free range non-GMO bees, but a real working man’s beer. The stuff you drink for taste and effect, not its calorie count.Now, on to the book review.The book is pure Milo. Dangerously loud, self-aggrandizing stories of why so many elements of the leftist machine hate him.But it also a very cautionary tale. He goes into the insidious ways the leftists are destroying American and British conservativism in particular and conservatism generally. By social ostracization and outright character assassination for failing to kowtow to the leftists’ Gods and ideology. How the media and various parts of the tech world are doing everything they can to shape the views of people though disingenuously claiming to be bias free all the while actively being anything but bias free. By deliberately allowing their employees and algorithms to give preference to anti-conservative news and personalities (Hey! Zuckerberg (of Farcebook) and Schmidt (of Googlieyes) – ya’ll hear that?). How the rise of the great fake news outlets ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and NPR and the overt leftist bias of the rest of the so-called mainstream media almost finished off America by convincing everyone the election of Felonia von Pantsuit as President was an inevitability. The very real danger of ISIS-style Islamofascism and its unflinching desire to exterminate all kaffirs (as they call all non-Islamofascists), subjugate women under the tyranny of a rapist culture where women are property (and I’m not only referring to those they condemn to slavery), and murder every last person who is LGBTQ.But he also challenges conservatives with ideas for how to combat the insidious creep of leftist (and LGBTQ and RINO) Groupthink. For example, unleashing the power of anti-trust law on any social media platform that claims to be bias free when they actively are anything but bias free. How to encourage the LGBTQ community to abandon their slavish grovelling before the Democratic party by getting the conservative establishment to stop championing dumb ideas that infringe on LGBTQ persons’ ability to live as they choose to live.I will say this against it – I could probably edit it down to about 50 pages of examples of leftist ideological jihad tactics and Milo’s effective means of countering those techniques and destroying the leftist jihadi opposition.I highly recommend reading it
⭐ Dangerous is hysterically funny and well written. I pre-ordered the book out of curiosity, there was so much controversy when Simon and Schuster cancelled the book deal. For god’s sake, Simon and Schuster published Snooki Polizzi’s (reality tv show Jersey Shore star) book, “A Shore Thing”, yet bowed to uproar from one side of the political spectrum over Dangerous? I figured I owed Milo’s book a read in the name of free speech, and I am glad I did. Full of biting humor and just the right amount of snark, it gives a hilarious view of the hypocrisy of the “tolerant”.
⭐ I love this book and I was laughing throughout the entirety of the pages. Milo has the absolute best delivery and I also enjoyed the Endnotes where I could read further into what he was talking about.I am an 18 year old woman and I love this book, who also voted for Trump. Milo is able to open the eyes and minds of people at all ages and I am proud to say that last year before the election I stumbled upon Milo and took the red pill. Thank you for all the entertainment and information of what is actually happening in the world.I am just glad that I have found out the truth for I am going to a liberal college and I would have became a brainwashed millennial that would have been thrown into a world full of corruptness and hypocrites that would have put me in a box without knowing my background and the things that I have gone through.Thanks for showing me that I can be an independent thinker and can look into things on my own without blindly trusting fake news that are only dividing people even further when it’s not even necessary. Milo is the truth and the truth will prevail in the end! This is an amazing book written by an amazing and strong person who knows what he is talking about! I would recommend everyone to read this!
⭐ For a while, it seemed like Milo was actually going to become a cultural phenomenon and really help to change the world and turn the tide against political correctness, which had of course gone too far in recent years. His articles, stunts, and lectures were doing an excellent job outlining the need for free speech and honest discussion on issues like race, gender, and Islam. I didn’t agree with everything Milo said, particularly regarding some of his traditionalist stances on gender roles, but I appreciated his subversive shock-jock style and his attention to facts over feelings. Many political liberals like myself, who were fed up with identity politics and felt like it was harming the cause of the left, could relate to what Milo was saying. And for young libertarian-leaning conservatives, Milo was the bullhorn, epitomizing a new order of right-wingers who were concerned with a whole new set of issues for the social media times we live in.All of the sudden, however, once it seemed certain Milo would become unstoppable, right after Milo was a guest on Bill Maher’s show and had a major book deal and an invitation to C-PAC under his belt, things fell apart. His enemies pulled out old quotes that made him seem sympathetic to pedophilia (even though he wasn’t… if one bothered to look into the full transcripts the quotes came from, that was clear), and everything blew up. He had to lay low for a while. Ironically, what happened to him was exactly the kind of media hit job he always warned his audiences about. He finally realized he wasn’t immune to these attacks, although his opponents lied about him on the nuclear level, since pedophilia is probably the ultimate taboo in Western society. It took that level of personal attack to damage him, which is a testament to his resilience.This book represents his comeback, and it is a good read that summarizes his positions and his approach and gives some context into the rise of his career, including a fascinating chapter on “Gamergate”, an online movement pitting feminists against gamers that I was not particularly familiar with. Milo does not talk about his “fall” as much as you’d think, relegating that to the introduction, which then almost gives the book a disjointed feel since you can tell certain chapters were written when he was at his height. Perhaps Milo’s point is to set the timeline back before the scandal that almost toppled him, make everyone forget about the “supports pedophilia” implications that still dog him worse than any other criticism leveled against him, false or true.If you are not familiar with Milo, this book is a good summary introduction, though you will find more content in the recordings of his lectures for sure. If you are already familiar with Milo, you may read some things you’ve already read or heard, but you will also learn some new things and have an idea of where Milo would like to go in the future. Whatever your political views are, if you support facts, free speech, and are okay with subversive humor, there is something to like about Milo in his battle against political correctness, and this book is another part of that battle.
⭐ Combinations of andicdotal stories, facts and deep rooted philosophies are shared by the author. It’s a look not into the authors mindframe but sheds light into various topics which are important but overlooked, hidden which affect culture. There is humor, cynicism and hipocrisys which make your mind challenge what the mainstream media offers. Although initially looked rather shallow: the books title towards the completion of the book sheds light into academia and the way it shapes our youth as well. Splashes of humor keep the reader entertained. The author is an advocate for free speech and has a huge distaste for Hollywood hypocrisy. It’s was a surprising combination. This book also sheds light into the gaming culture which was for the most part I was unaware of. The most interesting topics were related to technologies (silicon valleys) top executives and their actions during the election which the author believes threatening access to information and freedom of speech.
⭐ As a long-time advocate of free-speech before I knew it was a law, to now, 75.5 years later, Milo’s “Dangerous” is a delicious read as well as another clarion call to sanity. The phenomena of Milo in itself, is an ACT of free-speech, rather than an abstract recital that such a right exists… All of which is why free speech needs to be elevated in open-discussion and debate.Otherwise free-speech may end up being written and enforced by those who know much better than we, what we should, or should not be allowed to see, because they don’t want the threat of someone standing up, pointing a little finger and yelling, “Hey! Intersectional-Feminism and Vigilante Cyber-Social-Justice theory don’t have any clothes on!” And that’s why they deplatformed heterodoxy.
