How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) by Ann Coulter

About the book: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.”

First line: Historically, the best way to convert liberals is to have them move out of their parents' home, get a job, and start paying taxes.

My thoughts: I've been curious about Coulter's writing so when I found this book on CD at the used book store I got it. It is somewhat dated, most of the articles that make up this book are from 1999 to 2004. She comments on such things as 9/11, John Kerry, media bias, the new York Times, terrorism and so on. Her comments are very biting and she holds none of her feelings back. Her writing made me laugh several times through out. I felt she had some good points but they were hard to see through the sarcasm and name calling. You will understand what the author is about once you finish it. If you are a moderate you'll like some of it, if you are a conservative you'll like more of it. If you are a liberal you'll probably want to take it out and burn it. I'm just saying.

My Rating:
