From the irreverent star of Fox News’s Red Eye and The Five, hilarious observations on the manufactured outrage of an oversensitive, wussified culture.
Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals use the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense.
The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on- - replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people. With countless examples grabbed from the headlines, Gutfeld provides readers with the enormous tally of what pisses us all off. For example:
Funny and sarcastic to the point of being mean (but in a nice way), The Joy of Hate points out the true jerks in this society and tells them all off.

"Gutfeld is like Voltaire if Voltaire were actually funny." (Dennis Miller)
"Greg Gutfeld is a sweet, hysterical, evil genius. Liberals fear him because whenever they look down their noses, they see him. Or at least the top of his head. This is a man who would take time out from starring in two daily television shows just to help someone who has fallen down on the sidewalk. Mainly because it would be so funny to watch him fall. Viva Gutfeld!" (Ann Coulter)
"According to the Internet, Mother Teresa once defined Joy as 'a net of love by which you can catch souls'. In The Joy of Hate, Greg Gutfeld continues her mission - in a completely different way. Hilarious, outrageous, and brilliant, this is the best book on how to think about your fellow man since Atlas Shrugged, and the best book on how to deal with your enemies since The Anarchist Cookbook.." (Jonah Goldberg)
Gutfeld has an amazing ability to peel back the various diatribes out there and hit the very heart of the issues he writes about. His take on "cool" is simply first class and should be made into a doctoral dissertation on deviant mass psychological behavior. This book is a terrific compliment to "Not Cool".
His self deprecating humor and unique look at life
The truth even if you are not ready for it
I really appreciate the intellectual logic that is demonstrated rather than blind following of some political party.
He had a few good arguments. It wasn't phenomenal. My main complaint with it is there was a ton of swearing. I think a few well chosen four letter words can really drive your point home but the amount of swearing was totally unnecessary and just seemed really unprofessional. It made me feel like it was written by a high school student.
Gutfeld is an entertainer. If he doesn't narrate the book he needs to get a good impersonator to do it.
YES, if he narrates it himself. I will buy the printed copy if someone else narrates it.
Kramer is a great narrator but he isn't Gutfeld. If Greg is too busy, there must be someone who can impersonate Him.
It was a little fluffy, I wish he had expanded on some of his points. He did make good points, however, and was entertaining. His jokes got a bit old too.
I like Guttfeld on Fox, Red Eye is great. This book highlights exactly what is going on in America today. Gives great insight along with some great laughs.
Great reading only he mispronouced Reading PA!
No. Once is enough.
For the most part, Greg is correct in his assessment of the current state of the American media. This is an important issue, but one can appreciate that Greg has keeps his sense of humor throughout.
I thought he did well. However, when an aurthor writes with this much sarcasm, emotion and energy, the audio book would be better served if read by the aurthor.
That Greg was slandered on Twitter.
Cool as a glittered unicorn.
I don't think so, but I think he did a superior job.
