Praise

“[A] reminder that contrarian opinions can motivate us to think about what we’re consuming and what we’re taking for granted.” —Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW magazine

“Well-argued and warmly rendered … an unmistakable call for a new scepticism, a disciplined interrogation of one’s own ideas and courage to express them despite the crushing pressures of conformity or indifference.” —Brent Bambury, CBC’s Day 6

“In this clarion call to turn down the suck, John Semley turns up the good. Do hate the player, do hate the game, and do read Hater to do so decently.” —Benjamin Errett, author of Elements of Wit

“In an age where pop-culture opinions are evenly sorted between rigid agreement and insubstantial trolling, John Semley makes a fierce case for the dying art of informed criticism. Hater is necessary reading for the modern misanthrope.” —Andray Domise, Maclean’s Contributing Editor

“Defying the relentless pressure to stay positive, John Semley stands up for the righteous cause and dying art of ruthless critique. From predictable commodified culture to phony corrupt politics, there’s a lot to dislike these days. This is a scathing guidebook to hating in good faith.” —Astra Taylor, Writer and Filmmaker

Like a lot of manifestos, [Hater is] also a passionate broadside, a clarion call to wake the sheeple from their slumbers… the message of a book like Hater is more important than ever.” —Literary Review of Canada
