"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"

"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"

"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"

"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"
