After reading this book, I have new-found respect for the conservative view. As a person raised as a christian and educated in the engineering/science field, I often have to defend my conservative background in front of the liberals. Thanks for helping me with my arguments. The author takes offenses on the liberal logics but did not attempt to defend the conservative logics - a shortcoming of the book.
What a great book. I found this book intriguing and full of information not commonly known. I consider myself up on religious and political topics but I had no idea what I really didn't know. Well worth the credits.
Ann is either loved or reviled, but only because her arrows hit the mark with more fun and force than any other commentator today. Godless raises the stakes to a new level. If you love her other books, Godless won't disappoint-- you'll laugh as you learn. If you hate her, especially without ever reading one of her books, you might just want to try this one out, to cut through all the shouting about Ann and listen to her thoughts. As hilarious as she can be, in the end its not her humor that sells, its the intellect behind her arguments. By themselves, the ending chapters on evolution are worth the listen.
This book is great. While Ann Coulter is sometimes acerbic in her tone the material is very thought provoking and thouroughly researched. If liberal readers are angered or offended by what Ann presents the fault is not Ann's. In almost all cases she lets the liberals speak for themselves, using extensive quotes, and allows us to be the judge. She takes occasional potshots at people but it is no worse than one hears on the average TV talk show. The negative press was way overblown. This book is terrific. Highly recommended.
If you're a bleeding heart liberal this is probably not the book for you, but for the rest of us with a sense of humor it's a great read. I give it five stars!
I can not begin to express my thankfulness for such a masterpiece. This book tells it like it is with a "right in your face" format. It is about time someone wrote the truth.... Thank you Ann
This was an excellent book both in its content and in the reading of the text. The narrator did an excellent job of capturing the sarcasm of Ann Coulter. All I've got to say to liberals is read it and repent!
This book is obviously written from the far political right. It nonetheless makes excellent point in regards to religion, education and evolution issues. It is unfortunate that she dilutes the insights of her words with the need to use juvenile techniques like name calling, ridicule and just plain meaness when it is not necessary to make her otherwise interesting and strong points. Her views, of course, are only from the right and is not a 'balanced' view. Her comments on education are exceptionally well done and should be food everyone's thoughts. Her discussion of intelligent design would have been more compelling if she spent some time supporting intelligent design in ways other than pointing out the large holes in the theory of evolution. Her points re: the inconsistency of evolution are very good but her argument for intelligent design appears to be that evolution theory doesn't really explain all that much. This makes evolution look bad, but it is a very indirect support of intelligent design.
She uses the New York Times as both a symbol of liberalism yet, also uses it to support some of her views. If you are a liberal you will likely hate the tone and many of the arguments she makes, however, many of her points are very worthy of consideration. If you are a conservative you will like her views but may not like her tone. The most obvious short coming is that there is not one criticism or negative word re: conservatives that I can remember. It is even harder to believe that conservatives are perfect than to believe they are always right.
If you can get over the meaness in her words, the book is well worth reading.
Agree this is Ann's best book yet. A lot of information that I really want to remember. I'm re-reading because so much comes at you so quickly that you can't remember everything. Just like Ann it reads 100 miles per hour. Reader is excellent.
What a gutsy person! Ann courageously stands up to the left, and shouts those unspoken truths to their faces. And the worst replies she gets is the whines and tears from surprised liberals who can’t imagine why anyone would target poor grieving (and EXTREMELY RICH) widows! I am still waiting to hear what they say when they read what she wrote on the public school system (indoctrination of our children into the state religion), the teachers (their lies about not being paid enough when they make more money than most other professions, which we should understand, considering the ridiculous college courses they have to take), and the Darwin Theory of evolution (refuted time and time again, but yet, our kids are fed in schools it is *THE ONLY* explanation of why we are here)...but I won't hold my breath.
