Summary:

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.

    This a great book if you're on either side. It will show how liberals can be categorized and how we conservatives view you and why we don't want to be you. There are some points that are pretty far out there but then there are many times I was laughing at how true something are and how ridiculously funny the seem in context. I recommend this! Ann is a witty, funny and brings many good points to the table with out a filter. She says it how she believes it.

    Ann reads her own books, which is a great plus and adds to the experience. Very good book.

  • A. Renaud

    She is a plagiarist and at times an out right liar, and the book is still awful. She thought Canada fought with America in Vietnam, refers to a preschool class learning sex ed when her own foot notes lead you to a study about a college class learning about sex ed. Get ready for a lot of false information. Irresponsible Publishing!

    I'm not an out spoken political activist, but I have strong opinions. This was a new genre of literature for me; I'm used to pleasure reading novels that incorporate intellectual thoughts through literary art. I found her book to be repetitive had to force myself to focus. Her ideas were sound and she supported her opinions with many facts so she's done her homework, and she's actually a very funny author. I will read more of Ms. Coulter's books.

  • Pam Owston

    So entertaining and so true! Ann's humor is so outrageous but definitely hits the mark. I'd recommend this book highly.

  • Chas G

    Coulter cuts through the politically correct BS and right to the point.

  • Jason Bailey

    Finally a commentator who doesn't pull punches and says what many think (but won't say due to political correctness). I think that some of her statements are said tongue in cheek, but saying it the way she does shows the absurdity of the opposing view. I am anxiously awaiting her newest book.

    Ann is the best. If you like her other books you will love this one. If you are not a fan you should read it and learn.

  • David Gardner

    I love Ann Coulter. This book is really a collection of her columns from the past four or five years. It even includes some material that was originally rejected by her publishers for being too stinging. Great book for conservatives, not recommended for liberals - especially those with thin skin!
