    In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.

    Anyone who read or listened to this book can not possibly rate it a one star. This book was informative, biting, clever and well written. It gave me an entirely fresh and new perspective on the McCarthy era.

    Now if someone disagrees with the premises that is one thing but don't one star it just because you disagree with the politics. Do not make this review your own personal blog. This was a damn good book and I strongly recommend it especially if you consider yourself open minded. I would wager a months pay that no more than 10% of the one star people even listened to the book. Ann Coulter is absolutely despised by the left. Maybe it is because truth hurts. Just look at the number of reviews......Ann Coulter about 3000 and Al Franken about 500. I wonder if audible has even sold 2000 downloads of Ann's book. Buy the book just to find out why they are squealing.

    From the author of The New York Times best sellers Treason and Slander comes an updated Ann Coulter compendium, complete with reader responses and television and talk radio transcripts (Couric, Donahue, Franken). With titles like "Would Mohamed Atta Object to Armed Pilots?", "9 out of 10 Caribou Support Drilling", and "Liberal Pimps for Clintonism", How to Talk to a Liberal covers Coulter's waterfront on her favorite issues and targets, from national security to Hollywood.

    Audible should be able to cross-reference the one star listeners to see if they actually bought, let alone listened to the book, I doubt it 'cause this book is HOT! There is no other author that I await more than Coulter because of her biting and witty style. If you are a liberal let me give you a suggestion, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! You will come away with two black eyes and a bloody nose, not to mention the hurt "feelings. She is vicious, pulls no punches and best of all, spits on political correctness.

    No nonsense men who are sick of walking on eggshells will love this book. She lets the cat out of the bag on her debate strategies which many, go along to get along politicians unfortunately ignore.

    I caught myself laughing out loud on many occasions as she taunts the left with her well thought out and logical arguments.

    In their new book, Unfit for Command, John O'Neill and co-author Jerome Corsi bring together the words of more than 200 Navy veterans who served with John Kerry and who feel it their duty to tell why Kerry is unworthy of the presidency.

    "The right book at the right time"
    Overall

    A well written and to the point narrative. Sometimes one has to put politics aside and call a spade a spade. This book flows and does not spare any punches. Any left leaning person who objectively reads this book will have the worst case of candidate buyer's remorse ever recorded in US history. I believe every word of this book because I knew people just like Kerry in the military. They were a cancer on morale and horrible leaders.

    If there are lies or inconsistancies in the book, I want to know about them but this has caused my Kerry BS detector to wild. What true war hero brags about their war exploits, except someone who exaggerates?

    Conservative shock-mistress Ann Coulter continues her pillorying of American liberals with a follow-up to Slander. In an argument that poses a challenge to conventional interpretations of the First Amendment, she argues that because liberals are wrong on every issue concerning political analysis or policy prescription, their politics amount to treason.

    A User says: "Great twist on media spin"
    "well researched and refreshing point of view"
    Overall

    Made me rethink my unfounded prejudices of Joe McCarhy. I knew he was supposedly an evil guy but I could not explain why. Coulter vindicates McCarthy especially considering the vast espionage that existed in the State Dept. Coulter is smart, funny and hot to boot. Girly boys should pass on this title. Its not for the touchy feely crowd.

    Years before the public knew about bin Laden, Bill Clinton did. Bin Laden first attacked Americans during Clinton's presidential transition in December 1992. He struck again at the World Trade Center in February 1993. Over the next eight years the archterrorist's attacks would escalate killing hundreds and wounding thousands, while Clinton did his best to stymie the FBI and CIA and refused to wage a real war on terror. Why?

    Overall

    It does not take too much of a stretch of an imagination to think that a president would be consumed with his own scandals to avoid confronting a brewing problem elsewhere. I am a political junkie and have a good feel for politcal pragmatism. This account is very reasonable considering Clinton's track record. No person could objectively give this book a 1 star. Buy the book and get ready to get pissed off at your government.

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "smug and arrogant"
    Overall

    SNL and Franken are made for each other since neither are funny. Unlike 1 star reviewers of Coulter's book, I did complete the book. Let me save you some money and give you the Cliff's Notes version. Al Gore did invent the internet. Coulter calls an endnote a footnote, so she is a liar and Bill O'Reilly mistakenly called his Polk award a Peabody award. That's it, there are your lying liars.

    The book is wholly offensive to God fearing people and mocks their faith. His arguments are extremely petty and girly however it is not as whiny as Eric Alterman's book. If you are a glutton for punishment and still want to purchase this, you might want to do the hardcover since the opening audio chapters sound like his BAC was .20. I can only imagine a dimly lit studio, a half empty bottle of Stoli and some weird garlic smell.

    Eric Alterman confronts the question of liberal bias and provides a sharp and utterly convincing assessment of the realities of political bias in the news. The real story is not whether this newspaper, or that news anchor, is biased but rather what extent the entire news industry is organized to communicate conservative views and push our politics to the right.

    Erik says: "Interesting with Faults"
    "laughable premise"
    Overall

    Unlike the people who gave "Slander" a one star rating without reading it, I actually read this elitist and taxing stretch of an argument. The author actually contends that CNN, ABC and that dangerously politically correct medium of Marvel Comics are conservative tools. He deserves points for courage. His attempt at making this case must have been a gargantuan undertaking. He simply must be a glutton for punishment and you will be too if you, like I did, force yourself to to finish the book. His girly man voice made me think he probably got beaten up a lot in high school as he probably had one of those, Flock of Seagulls haircuts. I don't suggest this book if you are only an occasional reader, there are tons of better political books out there, e.g. "Treason", "Bias", "Slander" or "Behind the Oval Office", if you lean to the left. Admittedly, this book is better written than that autobiography "Stupid White Men" however, the main premise behind this book insults what, according to the author, must be my lying eyes.

    Ann Coulter, "pundit extraordinaire," takes a hard look at modern political discourse. Refreshingly honest, unerringly timely, Coulter lashes into liberals and demonstrates how the media obfuscates the issues, belittles the right and praises the left. Her outspoken manner has made her one of the most fascinating women in politics, according to George magazine. Don't miss C-SPAN's Booknotes: Ann Coulter's Slander.

    Amazon Customer says: "Liberals Should Listen to the Book"
    "Another Hole in the Dam"
    Overall

    After books like this and Bernard Goldbergs "Bias" it surprises me that there are those that still deny that there is not a left leaning media. This book is replete with incontrovertible example after example of a conscience or subconscious politically correct agenda. I think she had over 700 footnotes that can be easily checked out. Her premise is further realized by recent news stories of CNN's embarrassing Iraqi coverup agenda and the New York Times lowering of standards and ethics in their diversity endeavors. I would not call her humor nasty ala Michael Moore but she can be caustic when making her point especially when the recipient is another woman....wierrrr (cat sound) Yeah baby!!!

    Ayn Rand's famous 1957 classic, Atlas Shrugged, has become more widely read and influential with each passing year, thanks in part to its brilliant dramatization of Rand's Objectivist philosophy and its celebration of self-reliance, integrity, rationality, and productive effort.

    "Absolutely life altering"
    Overall

    This book takes a hard and honest look at the results of unintended consequences. While one's intentions may be one thing, actual human behavior is another. Mandated altruism is put on trial and hypocrisy is exposed. The book takes an enormous amount of patience and Ayn Rand would have been better served with a more insistant editor. She tends to be repetitive in her message but the message itself is truly and undeniably insightful as to what truly motivates man. Well worth the time invested. My biggest regret is that I didn't come across this book until I was 35. This will definitely be required reading (listening) for my two young boys.
