Outraged: Why Everyone Is Shouting and No One Is Talking A candid exploration of the state of outrage in our culture, how it debases our civil discourse, and how we can channel it back into the fights that matter, from radio host Ashley Dotty CharlesWe re living in a post modern utopia of sorts, where thanks to our resolute predecessors, we ve checked a bunch of items off our outrage shopping list Slavery Abolished Apartheid Not any buddy Women s suffrage Nailed it But what do you do when you keep winning your battles Well, you pick new ones, of course Ours is a society where many get by on provocation, the tactless but effective tool of peddling outrage and we all too quickly take the bait If outrage has become abundant, activism has definitely become subdued Are we so exhausted from our hashtags that we simply don t have the energy to be outraged in the real world Or are we simply pretending to be bothered There is still much to be outraged by in our final frontier the gender pay gap, racial bias, gun control but in order to enact change, we must learn to channel our responses Passionate, funny and unrelentingly wise, this is the essential guide to living through the age of outrage

    it is in that commitment to change, that unwavering belief in our outrage, where revolution is born This book is an easily accessible, thought provoking read on outrage in a digital age with real life examples, case studies, academic findings and influencer interviews from those at either end of outrage and vitriol It most importantly provides insight into how we can focus on important issues and how we can effect real, lasting change Thank you

    This is a thought provoking book It didn t tell me a whole lot that I hadn t already considered, or pondered myself, with regards to all the anger and outrage that is out there on social media However, it did shine a spotlight on it in a very quick and accessible format.The writer s style is conversational and easy to read, but the topic is not dumbed down as a result She has clearly done her research and her tone is witty and astute.That said, some of

    Not only did I agree with many of the ideas presented in this book, but I ve very much enjoyed the writing stile alert, engaging and hilarious I ve read this on ThePigeonHole many thanks for the opportunity and as others have pointed out at times it feltlike a colloquial essay rather than a book, full of ideas that may have been already explored elsewhere Towards the end, the author almost lost track of what she was saying and forgot to take her own advice, b

    When I first saw the title for this book I thought it might be some right wing pundit complaining about the snowflake generation, but thankfully it s a really powerful call to action for us to focus on what is an important issue and effective activism, rather than getting caught up in clicktivism and dragging cancelling culture.Ashley Dotty Charles is a BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter also known as Amplify Dot who ticks a few intersectional boxes as a Black gay woman She

    This is a great book in many ways and I think thewe think and talk about how we channel our efforts to change the world around us the better But personally there wasn t much new here for me, and I think I would have liked aindepth look of why marginalised people are so often denigrated as snowflakes and seem to be so likely to be swept up in social media outrage campaigns As she touches on it s often because it cuts so close to the bone when people see things that appear a

    I came across this book during the aftermath of the death of George Floyd when the world is ruled by blacklivesmatter blackouttuesday and many others In the times, when I knew my couple of followers on Instagram would lynch me if I dared to post something during blackout Tuesday, and when I was afraid I will get lynched for not posting the black square Despite knowing, most of these people posting black squares actually don t care and are racist themselves Not saying I agree with

    Thoughts On Outraged More than just a book review It was one of the motivations of outrage that I had yet to consider perhaps outrage was simply the opportunity for the powerless to be powerful for a day An emancipation of sorts Outraged, Ashley Dotty Charles Outrage used to requirethan a caption under a reposted picture It required action and intent It was the train that aimed to move protest towards progress Outraged, Ashley Dotty Charles We don t need to care less Thoughts On Outrage

    I hadn t heard of Dotty before, so I don t think I m the target demographic for this book, however I am fascinated and disturbed by the perpetual state of outrage that many people seem to find themselves in these days particularly those I see flaunting their fume on social media.A few years ago I read and enjoyed Jon Ronson s So You ve Been Publicly Shamed which I thought may have been an inspiration of sorts, for this book and indeed, Ronson does give a testimonial on the cover so when I hadn

    Eight stars out of five Screw it Twelve stars Please take all of my stars I was rolling, physically rolling with laughter and sympathy, if one can roll with sympathy from the first chapter It s quite a short read I finished it in around 3 hours and yet packed full of personality from page one I already want it read it again.What I love about Dotty is that she can hold her hands up and admit to having fallen into the many outrage traps herself, so this book in no way feels like a l Eight stars out of

    The star rating on Goodreads isn t really adequate for this one I ve rated it three stars I liked it as it s somewhere between that and 4 stars I really liked it.It started well It certainly didn t approach anything in a way that I haven t thought myself before, but I think it s good that someone like Ashley has written this and put it out there, as she probably speaks to a younger generation She writes well, and succinctly airs some of the problems we face as an online species, now.For m The star rating on
