Publisher Description

The West’s commitment to freedom, reason, and true liberalism have become endangered by a series of viral forces in our society today. Renowned host of the popular YouTube show, The Saad Truth, Dr. Gad Saad exposes how an epidemic of idea pathogens are spreading like a virus and killing common sense in the West. Serving as a powerful follow-up to Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules for Life, Dr. Saad unpacks what is really happening in progressive safe zones, why we need to be paying more attention to these trends, and what we must do to stop the spread of dangerous thinking. A professor at Concordia University who has witnessed this troubling epidemic first-hand, Dr. Saad dissects a multitude of these concerning forces (corrupt thought patterns, belief systems, attitudes, etc.) that have given rise to a stifling political correctness in our society and how these have created serious consequences that must be remedied—before it’s too late.

  • “Read this book, strengthen your resolve, and help us all return to reason.”

    - Jordan Peterson, PhD, clinical psychologist, professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, and author of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos
  • “His courage, his rationality, and his enthusiasm for that much-neglected thing, the truth, shine through this powerful book.”

    - Matt Ridley, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of The Rational Optimist and How Innovation Works
  • “With disarming humor and withering logic, evolutionary behavioral scientist Gad Saad shows us that self-delusion is an equal-opportunity employer, not defined by race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, political leanings, or level of education. Nothing is taboo. To read The Parasitic Mind is to understand why so many people either embrace Saad for his clarity or reject him for holding up a mirror to their inconsistencies.”

    - Paul A. Offit, MD, Maurice R. Hilleman Professor of Vaccinology, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and author of Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All
  • “A virus is sweeping through our civilization—a mind virus corrupting the brains of students, professors, and the public at large—and The Parasitic Mind is the vaccine that will counter this pernicious pandemic.”

    - Michael Shermer, PhD, publisher at Skeptic magazine and New York Times bestselling author of Giving the Devil His Due
  • “A wonderfully intelligent, witty, and riveting account of the politically correct madness engulfing our society. The Parasitic Mind is a must-read for anyone concerned about victim politics, cancel culture, and the assault on reason. Saad not only expertly diagnoses the malady, he also points the way to a cure.”

    - Christina Hoff Sommers, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and co-author of One Nation Under Therapy
