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)
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.
No. Unless you are a liberal hater who likes to hear the same points and arguments over and over again, there is no reason to listen to this book. I was looking for new information, new analysis, and new insight and got none of this. It was simply rehashing all the old information you've heard.
Greg should have developed new insight and not just retold old stories. The "why" behind liberal behavioral patterns is desperately missing from this book.
Steve wasn't snappy or sarcastic enough as Greg is/would have been. Greg should have narrated this.
I developed more of my own insight listening to this than the book provided. I think I could write a 1,500 word blog post about these same issues and provide you with more insight than the entirety of this book.
This book almost desperately seeks to be funny yet fails at every turn.
I would burn this book if I had it in physical form. At least then it would do something useful.
If you appreciate your time DO NOT BUY this book. I've lost 3 hours of my life that I will never get back already.
