It has been politically correct to be politically correct for many years now, and it seems that the trend is even intensifying. A slip of the tongue, an off-the-cuff comment, or a heartfelt posting on social media might rain a firestorm of criticism down upon a person and might even get them fired from their job. A person who always tries to be politically correct must choose their words and actions carefully, so they don’t offend someone or hurt someone’s fragile feelings. There used to be a saying that kids in school repeated if someone said something mean or nasty to them— “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Whatever happened to that simple philosophy? This book is about going Beyond Politically Correct—about saying what you mean and meaning what you say. The book contains over 100 situations that people face in real life along with the type of response a person might give if trying to be politically correct. Then, what a person would say if they had the guts to go Beyond Politically Correct and say what they really believe, to be Brutally Honest, is shown for the same situation. This book is about relationships, advice, wisdom, and philosophies to live by, sprinkled with a good dose of humor, satire, and irreverence—and it’s a little risque, so be prepared.
Rating: 5 stars
Trumped! Beyond Politically Correct by Peter Davidson is absolutely a must read for all. Instantly, his writing had me laughing-out-loud shaking hard with laughter and blew me away. Compelling, addictive, well-written. Peter Davidson’s humor is phenomenal. Each of his short pieces, inside his book, are realistic, true, and believable. I couldn’t help turning the pages as each page lured me deeper into what was being said. A great dose of advice, relationships, and philosophy can be found, on every page. Once, readers begin…they won’t be able to stop reading. I found this to be a perfect book with an excellent collection that I can read again as many times as possible…and still, find it highly entertaining and hilarious. Overall, I highly recommend Trumped! Beyond Politically Correct to readers worldwide. I look forward to reading more by Peter Davidson in the future.
