Ben Shapiro is one hell of a speaker. He’s one hell of a writer, too.

Ben’s not only a great writer, he’s a prolific writer. Just how many books has Ben Shapiro written?

According to his Goodreads author profile, it looks to be around 23, starting with Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth, which Ben wrote in 2004 while attending UCLA.

That’s a lot to choose from, and unless you’re some Shapiro-obsessed fan (you are, aren’t you?), you probably don’t have time to read all of them (or even half).

So, which do you read? That’s what I’m here to help you decide.

I’ve created a list of eight of Ben’s best works. This isn’t just my opinion, but the thoughts and opinions of Shapiro’s fans that I’ve accumulated from skimming hundreds of reviews.

Let’s start things off with Ben’s newest book, which is getting rave reviews . . .

The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great

What’s It About?

In The Right Side of History, Ben takes a close look at the moral decay and growing shallowness of Western civilization. The West was built on the blood, sweat, and tears of men and women who held Judaeo-Christian values; that much is undeniable. But what happens when the same society built on those values turns around and rejects them, devaluing human life and objective truth in the process? Will the West crumble like so many other great cultures in the past?

Who Should Read It?

If you’re into history and have a Christian worldview, or are merely curious of the importance of Christianity in the West, this is the book for you.


Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth

What’s It About?

It’s an obvious fact that college campuses are dominated by left-wing professors promoting left-wing ideas, and employed by left-wing administrations.The end result is a left-wing echo chamber often times intolerant of anything right wing. What sort of long-term consequences will this have on the young, impressionable students indoctrinated by such an environment? That’s the subject Ben Shapiro covers in Brain Washed, which was written at a time when he, himself, was a student (how’s that for firsthand experience?).

Who Should Read It?

If you’re a university student, about to become a university, or a parent of a university student, this book should be near the top of your to-read list. While it was first written 15 years ago, not only is it still fresh, it’s probably more true today than ever.America’s academic far left continues to grow in size and intensity. You owe it to yourself to understand them, to learn how to deal with them in a productive manner, and to read this book.

What’s It About?

Universities aren’t the only place dominated by left-wing ideology. Television may be even worse. How did it come to be? Was it by design, or mere coincidence? Primetime Propaganda answers those questions while taking readers on a decade-by-decade look at the history of American television.

Who Should Read It?

If you’re a TV buff of any (or no) political leaning, give it a look. While it’s mostly aimed at right wingers, even detached from the political angle it’s an interesting look at the rise of television in America. If you’re not a TV buff, but interested in the rise of left-wing propaganda on television, it’s worth a read.

 


A Moral Universe Torn Apart

What’s It About?

A Moral Universe Torn Apart isn’t your typical read. It’s not a singularly-focused book. Instead, it’s comprised of Ben’s nationally-syndicated articles, all published in the year 2014, a landmark year that set the foundation for the rise of Donald Trump.

Who Should Read It?

If you’d like a broader idea of who Ben Shapiro is and what he stands for, this book is what you’re looking for. It not only covers moral and religious issues, but delves into economics, with some touching personal anecdotes to boot.

What’s It About?

This book is similar to A Moral Universe Torn Apart in that it’s comprised entirely of Ben Shapiro’s published articles. Rather than focusing on a single year, like the previous book, And We All Fall Down expands to include the years 2014-2016.

Who Should Read It?

If you like the idea of reading a broad view of Ben’s thoughts from a particular time frame, but don’t want to limit it to a single year, this book has what you’re looking for.

What’s It About?

The left likes to bully their opponents. A lot. So much, in fact, that Ben Shapiro was able to write a superb 300+ page book on it. Bullies is that book. In it, Ben takes a look at the bullying strategy used by so much of the modern left, and the hypocrisy behind it. Is this really the best the left has to offer? Ben helps answer that all-too-depressing question.

Who Should Read It?

Ben beautifully breaks down the dubious tactics leftists use in debates. This is not only interesting, it’s useful: you’ll be able to immediately recognize them not only when they’re used by politicians and the media, but when they’re used against you in political debates.

 


 

The Establishment Is Dead: The Rise and Election of Donald Trump

What’s It About?

Yet another collection of Shapiro’s articles, The Establishment Is Dead focuses on the meteoric rise and eventual presidency of Donald Trump. What makes this book even more interesting is that Ben’s no Trump fan. While Ben’s not a fan of Trump, he’s always fair, and never lets his feelings get in the way of the facts.

Who Should Read It?

If you want a reasonable and in-depth look at the craziest period in modern American politics, ending in arguably the most shocking election victory of all-time, pick this book up today. Ben’s honest enough to give Trump credit where it’s due, while never drifting into sycophancy.

 


The People vs. Barack Obama: The Criminal Case Against the Obama Administration

What’s It About?

Ben takes a harsh-but-fair look at one of the most controversial presidents in U.S. history, Barack Obama.Just how bad were his abuses of power while in the Oval Office? What are the long-term ramifications? Ben helps answer both of those questions in this book. Just be warned, the answers are disturbing.

Who Should Read It?

If you’re interested in just how corrupt a presidency can become, you won’t find a better read. While the media loves to lambaste the Trump presidency, it’s hard to believe he’ll ever come close to the corruption we saw during the Obama years.
