Welcome to the world of Ann Coulter. With her monumental bestsellers Treason, Slander, and High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Coulter has become the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual in years--and certainly the most controversial. Now, in How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must), which is sure to ignite impassioned debate, she offers her most comprehensive analysis of the American political scene to date. With incisive reasoning, refreshing candor, and razor-sharp wit, she reveals just why liberals have got it so wrong. In this powerful and entertaining book, which draws on her weekly columns, Coulter ranges far and wide. No subject is off-limits, and no comment is left unsaid. After all, she writes, Nothing too extreme can be said about liberals because it's all true. How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) offers Coulter's unvarnished take on: -The essence of being a liberal: The absolute conviction that there is one set of rules for you, and another, completely different set of rules for everyone else. -John Kerry: A reporter asked Kerry, 'Are you for or against gay marriage?' As usual, his answer was, 'Yes.' -Her 9/11 comments: I am often asked if I still think we should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity. The answer is: Now more than ever -The state of the Democratic Party: Teddy Kennedy crawls out of Boston Harbor with a quart of Scotch in one pocket and a pair of pantyhose in the other, and Democrats hail him as their party's spiritual leader. -Her philosophy for arguing with liberals: Tough love, except I don't love them. My 'tough love' approach is much like the Democrats' 'middle-class tax cuts'--everything but the last word. -The Treason Lobby: Want to make liberals angry? Defend the United States. In this full-on Coulterpalooza, you'll find the real, uncensored Ann Coulter. A special concluding chapter even includes the pieces that squeamish editors refused to publish--what you could have read if you lived in a free country, says Coulter. How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) is a stunning reminder of why Ann Coulter's commentary has achieved must-read status. A fluent polemicist with a gift for Menckenesque invective...and she can harness such language to subtle, syllogistic argument.--Washington Post Book World Ann Coulter is a trailblazer.--Los Angeles Times Book Review She can zing one-liners faster than Zeus can throw lightning bolts.--Kansas City Star You know those pundits who bore you to tears trying to balance everyone's point of view? Coulter isn't one.--People A great deal of research supports Ms. Coulter's wisecracks.--New York Times The conservative movement has found its diva.--Bill Maher Ann Coulter is a pundit extraordinaire.--Rush Limbaugh Also available as a Random House AudioBook and as an e-Book From the Hardcover edition.… (més)

Really, if you're going to give a book such an intriguing title, please don't just make it a compilation of old columns. With a title promising to teach the reader "how to talk to a liberal," if he or she must, this book is a huge disappointment when it's not even a guide. Nor does it redeem itself as a collection of outrageous Ann Coulter sayings. Instead, it's quite... boring. And I don't accept that from Ann Coulter. ( )

I had been wanting to read this for years, based almost solely on the title. I'm really amazed I was able to muscle through almost the entire thing. It is really unbearable. The format was poor (mostly it is just reprinting her columns in one collection) but that in and of itself isn't enough to discount it. One of my favorite books was Tucker's "Bourbon for Breakfast" which is almost solely a collection of his Blog posts, so that in and of itself is not enough to hate it.

However Coulter is entirely condescending. While the prologue actually had some useful information on how to talk to those who disagree politically, the rest of the book goes on with her completely ignoring her own advice. She is OBSSED with the War on Terror. How someone can claim we should "find the terrorist, kill their leaders, and convert them all to Christianity" doesn't sound like much of a Christian to me. In fact, claiming to be one is only hurting the Christian brand, I doubt she would call herself a follower of Jesus, or claim to have a relationship with Him, as it appears fairly obvious that if she does its not a good one.

She claims to hate Republicans, then goes on to tell us how Democrats are worse than Satan, and some republicans are Democrats.

Coulter can't get laid, and somehow that is the fault of Feminists and liberals. It could be your attitude Ann. Who would want to have dinner with you every night? No one I know.

I kept going as long as I did because I was told the book included her attempt at being a Libertarian candidate. Basically that came down to "the Libertarian Party of Connecticut was not comfortable with my lake of libertarian cred, particular on the drugs issue." Allegedly this was back in '99. As this was before the War on Terror, I'm certain she would not have even got in the door in today's Libertarian Party.

Please do yourself a favor and avoid this book at all costs. The only benefit would be to take it from a conservative after first assuring it is out of print, and never give it back.

Note, the one article on Campaign Finance reform was actually pretty good and one of the only logical arguments I have ever heard and actually aimed at those who do not already agree with her. I suspect you can find that on the internet much more easily than getting this book. ( )

Was this supposed to be a humor book? I couldn't finish it, as I found it too unbelievable. ( )

Too pleased with herself to provide any decent analysis. The vituperative nature of her text is very negative. I can't imagine that she could have a calm discussion without getting shrill. ( )
