It's not enough to be right these days - especially when you're not left.
To survive, the right must learn how to express nonliberal principles as effectively as possible and persuade others of their point of view. It is an art that demands patience, research, humor, understanding, creative thinking, learning from your opponent, and even mimicking their tactics.
In How to Be Right: the Art of Being Persuasively Correct, Gutfeld reveals the strategies that have helped him keep a steady job for almost three decades. From "Discard Your Outrage" and "Outcompassion Them" to "Find the Right's Obama" and "Use your Mom", Gutfeld gives listeners the tools they'll need to argue, influence, and convince their friends, family, and foes throughout the 2016 election cycle.

I love the book, but it is frustrating & disappointing when media members that speak for a living can't deliver the narration for their own book! Greg did for his earlier book, but not the last two.
In a world where communicating ideas has been reduced to 120 characters or less, this book reminds us to be informed, not be too serious, and not be afraid to engage a liberal.
Great book but to me it loses a certain connection when it is not read by the author. Especially when someone like Greg has a unique voice and would have added to all of the sarcasm in the book. It's just not the same when a random narrator reads his sarcastic points with no real connection...the narrator probably doesn't even know who Greg is.
I seldom if ever listen to nonfiction it bores me to death but this was funny, entertaining and I actually learned a lot especially why I don't like liberals.
It didn't seem to have a point. It seemed more a diary of a boring young life.
I seldom read this genre.
Seemed a lot of excitement about nothing.
I hope Mr. Gutfeld made a few bucks. Income and profit are good things.
I would like read something better of his energetic take on life.
How to be right, unless you are Trump. This is not a books against Trump, as he only mentions Trump once and the book came out before Trump won the GOP primary. The book is about how conservatives and the right can get people to agree with them and win others to our side. And I agree with most of his suggestions, but Trump basically does everything that he says not to do. This doesn't mean that the book is wrong, because Trump is the exception that proves the rules. Basically the book explains how conservatives need to learn how to be funny, witty, not too serious, know our facts, honest, but don't say stupid stuff that makes conservatives look dumb or mean. Overall a good book and that has some good suggestions that I can even use in business.
I don't agree with he's style of writing his book, we dont have to be like liberals where cursing is one of their values...maybe if the author would have read it himself it could have been different because the narrator is trying to imitate him making it sound bad.. he does have some good points.. mainly is relax don't be so square..
I though this was going to be a book on debate and persuasion, but it turned out to be a book about the authors political stance. Maybe, I should have researched the author more before picking this. I also didn't finish the read as it came off as very brash and opinion oriented on things that were not pertinent to what I though the subject was. Felt more like a Lewis black presentation on political views than it did a book on persuasion techniques.
