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.
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 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.

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.

Narrator is ok but no one pulls off Greg's humorous lines better than Greg, himself. A writer's work should be presented in the most favorable manner. Greg's personality, speaking style and idiosyncratic charms are a strong component to the voice he creates in his work. His books would benefit greatly if he read them himself.
Greg Gutfeld did a great job in the writing of this book, but the narrator was God awful and ruined the entire experience with his monotoned voice and lack of emotion.
renewing the art of debate, using humor and comedy to discredit opponents. Entertaining enough to maintain interest
Great insights on a variety of topics. Laced with Greg's irreverent humor and wit. Some four letter words laced throughout for emphasis so might not want to listen in front of the kiddos but well worth the listen.
Love reading Greg's books. He breaks things down so well. I don't agree with him lock step, that never seems like a good idea, but agree generally with his world view. Thanks for providing more content to use when trapped in conversations with those with opposing views to my own!
I was looking for more humor. It was missing here. I like his sarcasm and was a bit disappointed.
