Any review that says they liked her other books but disliked this one is not being honest. This was one of her best (if not THE best) book. Its hard to rate them because the topics are so varied and are all of the same general style but if she has "bad" books, this most certainly is not one of them. If I had to pick a bad book from her I would have to say one of the article compilation books, and ONLY because they aren't new material just her putting a year or so worth of her newspaper articles into hardback.
This book reminded me why Ann Coulter is the most insightful political commentator today. There has NEVER been someone like her. She makes so many subtle points in Mugged that you have to read it more than once to "get" while also making you laugh.
Ann showed me how little I knew about the development of the race industry in our country and how it is used every day to further an ideology.
Ann lays out her argument as if she were prosecuting a case and teaching a lecture at the same time. The facts are well documented and presented in a way that makes it nearly impossible to not see what she is trying to say.
Insightful, historical, thought-provoking
It demonstrate the hypocracy of the Left and how they usurp valid causes.
Another outstanding book from Coulter

Ann Coulter is a terrific historian and has succeeded in telling the development of racism in the United States. Our nation's war against itself is a stunning portrayal of the liberal's blame game. As I grew up I noticed that for some reason, our country was attempting to find racism behind every person; (Especially every Republican). As I grew up in a suburban Chicago home, it seemed liberal fingers were pointing at me! I was very active in my community's African-American neighborhoods too. I came from a decidedly lower middle class white town but I worked at low paying or volunteer jobs....which I did because I wanted to, not because I was shamed into it. However, I was shocked to learn that I was considered a racist...go figure. It's too bad that my altruism was actually questioned when I really wished to just help kids have a good time.
I thought it was well thought out and put together. I am not a fan of hers and read the book on a recommendation. Now if she would please do just as good in her next book about the lies and demagoguery from the side she isn't so inclined to disparage. The chronology is easy to follow and research seems complete. If she puts her mind to it things turn out very well in her story telling. As I suggested, I would a more balanced approach from her. Not in the same book for sure.
I liked that she read the book.
