Welcome to the world of Ann Coulter. With her monumental best sellers Treason, Slander, and High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Coulter has become the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual in years, and certainly the most controversial. Now, in How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must), which is sure to ignite impassioned debate, she offers her most comprehensive analysis of the American political scene to date. With incisive reasoning, refreshing candor, and razor-sharp wit, she reveals just why liberals have got it so wrong.
In this powerful and entertaining book, which draws on her weekly columns, Coulter ranges far and wide. No subject is off-limits, and no comment is left unsaid. After all, she writes, "Nothing too extreme can be said about liberals because it's all true." How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) offers Coulter's unvarnished take on:
In this full-on Coulterpalooza, you'll find the real, uncensored Ann Coulter. A special concluding chapter even includes the pieces that squeamish editors refused to publish, "what you could have read if you lived in a free country", says Coulter. How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) is a stunning reminder of why Ann Coulter's commentary has achieved must-read status.

As a frequent reader of nearly any political history, satire or analysis, I found Ann Coulter's new book to be even less interesting and more polemic then Treason and Slander. It feels like a homework assignment that was hastily turned in. Also, I'm politically moderate (socially liberal, VERY economically conservative) so although I enjoy a good solid rant and sharp satire, most of this book is just hateful psycho-babble. I was expecting a better counterpoint to Al Franken, Michael Moore etc and this just isn't it. You may enjoy it though if you just hate liberals and want to hear someone confirm what you already know or think you know.
I am an occasional follower of politics and onthe off chance I pick up a book about politics I like to find that there is a lot of substance between its covers. This book had none (note: I barely got through it because it was more or less calling liberals stupid without justification then anything else). So, if you hate liberals and want a book to tell you "you're right" blindly and not challenge your ideas then this is the book for you.
Ann Coulter would have you think that any Democrat alive today who is for "liberal" policies like equal rights, women's right to vote, and eliminating racism are enemies of the state. It is dreadful to think that our country produced this vile bag of putrid. It's a great book if you love hate. If you want knowledge (or, preferably) wisdom that will inform you on politics today, I would suggest starting with the US Constitution, Fulbright's writings in 1966, The Holy Bible, or the writing of the Dalai Lama. Make love, not war... Peace.
