    The book got banned by Amazon after making it to number 3 on the best sellers list. Banned because the liberal ran company didn't like the fact the book points out facts about Hollywood Propaganda and things they do to try and "train" its citizens.

Ricky Gervais said it best to them; "You have no idea how the real world operates and you are in no position to tell people how to live." Mark Dice is a better author and commentator than most MSM news "journalists" lol

    This is a deeply partisan book but oh so needed. Reads like a Steve Sailer blog post in long form.

    I liked this book overall. Mark Dice provides many examples of how Hollywood has used its power to influence people. Even though I enjoyed this book, I thought that some chapters were just lists of the plots of various movies and T.V. shows. The author could have increased the effectiveness of the book by adding details on how these examples of media fit together as a whole to support his thesis. All in all, I think that this is a book worth taking the time to read.

    His best book yet!!! A really thorough and eye opening exploration of what Hollywood poisons our minds with on a daily basis. Mark is a wonderful author and this is the fourth book of his that I have read, the other three being "The True Story of Fake News", "Liberalism: Find a Cure" and "The Liberal Media Industrial Complex".

    Hollywood has sunk into the mud bottom of the swamp. “Hollywood Propaganda” exposes a litany of social engineering gone berserk. It is hard to watch any show or movie without thinking how batshit crazy Hollywood has become. The subtitle of this book should read – “abandon hope all ye who enter here.” It makes you wonder if there is any hope for future civilization. Most sensible adults have given up on the mainstream media Hollywood style. But when you hide your head in the sand you abdicate you Hollywood has sunk into the mud bottom of the swamp. “Hollywood Propaganda” exposes a litany of social engineering gone berserk.

If you are in the group who have not yet given up the fight for decency and honor in entertainment, then you should read this book to arm yourself with knowledge. Your grandchildren are depending on you.

    Mark Dice's heart is in the right place. The information is solid and nicely sourced. The issue I have with this book is that I can not figure out who the audience is. Why was the book written?

They won't need to read the book, they already know it. SJWs, so called progressives, do not have the ability to process information that does not agree with their agenda, so they will treat it as a vampire treats sunlight.

    An excellent read full of information that you won't find readily encapsulated in one volume. Well written and researched. An excellent read full of information that you won't find readily encapsulated in one volume. Well written and researched.

    4.5/5 The only reason this is not a 5 star rating is because it really felt like you were extremely harsh towards the LGBT related subject. Before anybody gets offended, you should have a minimal capacity to be impartial here.

Make no mistake, I completely and strongly agree with the fact that the propaganda pushed by Hollywood (which is the main subject of the book) and by the most aggressive leftists is poisonous, but you know, at the end of the day there are also ordinary people who are not all extremists or crazy, and that's something you yourself fail to acknowledge due to your own bias on the issue. Mentioning that you refuse to recognize same-sex "marriage" is alright (let's suppose), but don't forget that everybody in society contributes by paying taxes, and this should explain everything. Don't forget that there is a certain amount (although considerably small) of gays and lesbians that are republicans, if you ever dared imagine that and it's not me saying it. Again, I highly doubt ordinary people are that crazy. I think a minimum amount of recognition and acceptance should be offered to the segment that is decent and fair (not the degenerate parades); let alone the historical and cultural contributions of brilliant examples, but since the focus is now on Hollywood, that's fine. Such arguments can be dismissed at this point. This is what I don't like when both parties fail to keep things in balance. I believe republicans should be more understanding (although not given many reasons to be so, especially nowadays), while liberals should stop the extremist agenda that's funneled into our brains, which makes the whole thing disgusting, to say the least. Balance is key :) Other than that, an extremely well-documented book with plenty of examples and explanations. I'll definitely check out the others as well. Thanks a lot for the myriad of movie references. I've got plenty to watch now! :D

    So you think you're unique? Maybe you think you're a special blend of admirable self-guided qualities that come from your own unique generation. Think again. There is nothing within American culture that hasn't been planned and decided for you. The sources within this book are easily "fact-checkable". Learning about the behind the scenes special interest lobbying groups that push agenda into our culture cause nothing but manufacted, premeditated "paradigm shifts".

Its sicker than we want to believe. No main stream movie or piece of pop culture goes unscathed by our industry goals anymore. P.S.: this book is not for the faint of heart. It includes pedos, disturbing accounts, and pro incest perspectives from individuals within Disney.

    Mark Dice's videos are very entertaining, but they destill an overarching, serious message. His books are in-depth analyses of societal phenomena, and as such they are very informative. This book is no exception: it cites various examples of how the entertainment industry shapes our perceptions of the world, mainly through surreptitious but pervasive means. As all of Dice's books, it is extremely well-sourced.

    An Eye Opener I always felt that what we saw in movies, TV Series, news and the music we hear seems to be leftist propaganda. This book confirms my conclusion with thousands of pieces of evidence. When did Americans become so unAmerican and their support for things which are simply wrong by common sense analysis is beyond my understanding. The author has done an excellent job exposing what is really going on in Hollywood. This book was worth every penny. I learnt a lot. Thank you!

    An important read! Mark Dice has once again given freedom loving americans a concise a d well written arguement to use against the left. As with his other works, his impeccable research pays dividends for his readers. We can be assured that the information is truthful since his extensive footnotes allow us to independently verify it (unlike the fake news media that expect us to just take them at their words--even if our eyes can see their lies).

    The book reveals a lot of the mechanisms behind all the stories the media promotes- in television sitcoms, movies, news, music. It shows how the culture itself has changed due to the influence of the media and celebrities. Values and morals have changed. The only reason I docked 1 star is because I already knew most of this information, due to watching Mark Dice channel and due to my own studies of culture and history. But yeah, it's a good informative book! The book reveals a lot of the mechanisms behind all the stories the media promotes- in television sitcoms, movies, news, music.

    Truthful Reading Insightful, informative and truthful. After reading this, my thoughts were: Why is this tsunami of political correctness, and yet degrading white straight people, and condoning immoral behavior become the social norm? American life and prosperity for the common working person now is like walking on egg shells. Need more writers like Mike Dice that write the truth and not care what the woke mob thinks.

    Very well-researched book with citations on every page. Mark Dice describes scenes in movies and TV to give examples of the types of propaganda that were used, which helps if you never saw the scene before, don't remember it, or didn't catch the propaganda when you first watched it. He pulls up information from interviews as well. Many times, I found myself pausing to watch a clip or music video that he mentioned. Very interesting book-now I want to read more authored by him.

    Brilliant If you want to read a well written and researched book about the influence that Hollywood wields then this is the book for you. It's as good as all of his other books. If you're a fan of his youtube channel you will enjoy this as it goes deeper into the subject and has all the info that youtube doesn't allow onto it's platform. Worth 5 stars all day long.

    Mark Dice did not disappoint. Hollywood Propaganda is very well researched and he points out many events that have taken place over the last several years and has showed how it applies to the different topics included in the book. For instance, I did not know Planned Parenthood has a media branch that lobbies Hollywood.

    A Well Researched Insightful Read Been a fan of Mark Dices videos for a while and finally gave in to reading his books. A very insightful read that has open my eyes to what Hollywood has been trying to shove down our throats. What makes this book even more great is that footnotes have been left to the topics he discusses that way you can see for yourself and do your own research

    Courageous and honest This book makes you aware of what lies behind entertainment. Things you should know, if you don't want to let someone else program your thoughts and opinions. Things that are uncomfortable to say and to hear nowadays, and may become forbidden to say in the future. Courageous and honest This book makes you aware of what lies behind entertainment.

    Great book This book was an easy read and full of information about Hollywood. The way Mark presents how the CIA has used not only Hollywood, but the news media to push propaganda was informative. I appreciate the way Mark ended his book. Thanks Mark for another great read!

    Honest, with lots of documentation This book explains a lot of what is happening in culture right now and the impetus/ history behind it. Extremely well documented, and packed with facts-I’m sure this will be banned soon.
