Coulter is right-on! Her research is sound and she backs up her claims with facts not spin. Every serious minded thinker should read and head if they love their country and are concerned about the future of their children and grandchildren!
The History in the book was very interesting, and she ties it very well into current events as she goes into the mindset of Mobs.
A must read if you care about the future of this country.
This is an excellent evaluation of what our society is turning into. The mob is sending us to a place I am not sure we want to go!!!
Ann compares the American Revolution with the French Revolution. Why did the French Revolution end in failure and why did the American Revolution succeed. The difference, being an agnostic Mob in France vs. our Founders, who subscribed to higher spiritual values. Now the Mob has taken over America. They want the Creators and Producers pay ever more taxes, so that they can vote themselves ever more money. If we don't stop it soon, this will end in a failure of the Republic.
Yes, great history as well as exampled arguments
What the french revolution was really about and just how ridiculous it really was
Mobs are so easily led
eye-opening. Liberals need to read it to understand how simply they are being led
Elizabeth White's narration distracted from the book's message. Too soft-spoken. The greater the intended emphasis - the softer the voice. Having listened to Ann narrate previous books it was difficult to appreciate Elizabeth's approach towards narration. I'm sure her narration style works for others but I would suggest her style is more appropriate for children's books about bunnies.
I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
The French are to blame first, then the Democratic Party according to AC.
This is an excellent history on the French Revolution and the revolutions that followed. There is a history on the American Revolution and how it differed from the FR. There is a lot on Mobs and mob mentality. These ideas and explanations alone are reason enough to buy the book.
AC is very entertaining, and very informative. It sounds as if a lot of research was done in order to write this book. Listening to the history was erudite. Evidently your not going to get this type of history lesson in our schools or universities.
AC's arrogance and all or nothing blame is the main problem. In placing blame she often contradicts herself, even in the same chapter. I believe she should also point out that she is talking about Liberal Elite, not the everyday hard working democrats. I am married to a democrat and she is not the evil, demonic person Coulter paints her. On the other hand Democratic Leaders are suspect. I was a Republican for years, but Bush ruined me on that. I now believe that there is not much difference between the two. Either party will do what it takes to be in power.
I think if you are a strong Democrat you do not want to buy this book, I believe it will probably just piss you off. If AC, Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck could all be less arrogant and so 100% sure of themselves they would do better for there cause, but they may not have as many listeners or sell as many books.
Preaching to the crowd sells books and gets ratings.
AC is entertaining and very informative. I enjoyed the book and learned about the FR , AR and mobs and how mobs work. Anytime I can learn and be entertained is a plus.

I cannot get past the first chapter of this version of the audiobook. I'm not sure why someone chose this narrator for this book but it's almost like having Mr. Rogers narrate General MacArthur's, "MacArthur on War." Elizabeth White has a soft, sweet speaking voice and inserts so many gentle pauses, that almost had to claw the earbuds out of my ear (sorry, Ms. White). The mismatch between the narrator and the subject matter is too great. I'm going back for the version that Ann Coulter herself reads, even if it is the abridged version.
Not for a political commentary. Maybe something else.
Undeniable evidence to back her thesis. I have been doing my own research into some of the facts she uses to support her argument. She is absolutely correct each time. I would like to fact check the entire book, but I'll have to buy a hard copy because there is so much. Not a problem, she is an author worth supporting.
There are no "characters," but Ann's writing style is hilarious and insightful.
The French Revolution is extremely interesting and frightening. It sounded like what would happen if Occupy Wall Street got its way. I also liked the discussion of pre WWII Germany. I have been doing my own research into this subject to find out how the Nazi party rose to power. Interesting fact: preWWII German government was trying to stimulate their economy by borrowing massive amounts of money from other countries and using it on social programs for the German people. Right before the collapse of their currency, they were spending more on each citizen than any country in the history of the world. Sound familiar?
Great book. I loved her final conclusions. Especially the end where she calls conservatives to task for wimping when the mob gets violent. She is exactly right about the violent tendencies Liberals exhibit. A family member of mine saw something I wrote about the RNC. He immediately wrote in response, "racist $#!* bags!" I rest my case. My only gripe about the audiobook is the reader, she would be better reading a romance novel.
The facts that we have not been taught. I feel like I need to go back to school and re learn the story of our country!
Not really just a bit mad at the way our country is heading and why.
This should be required by any person allowed to vote!
