Publisher's summary

The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs - it is the mob.

Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.

Awful, inappropriate narrator ...

Barely can listen to the narrator's whiny rendition, inappropriate intonations, awful! Almost as if the selection of this narrator and her performance is aiming at sabotaging the audio book.
Maybe this narrator should be matched with audio books for children under 6. But listening to her is a torture.... Beware...You will need to read it after all, don;t bother with this audio version.

To be fair to the author and her listeners, I think Ann Coulter should insist on having it rendered by a suitable professional narrator.

Essential to understanding modern politics

I have to agree with other reviewers that the narrator wasn't the best but she was adequate and the book is magnificent. Ann Coulter is often praised or attacked for her acerbic wit, which she certainly has and it appears in this book, but more than that this book provided an essential piece to my understanding of modern politics and its ideological background. To over simplify it the two primary political philosophies at work today, as they really have been throughout U.S. history and western thought since about the time of the founding of the U.S. are 1. the English school with the writings of John Locke, Edmund Burke and Adam Smith who believed in individual rights and are now usually called, in the U.S., Conservatives or Libertarians and 2. the French school with the writing of Rousseau and Robespierre, who believed in collective rights and are now usually called in the U.S., Liberals or Progressives. Most people, even those interested in or active in politics know very little about either ideological roots but the knowledge and understanding of French school is even harder to come-by. This book is about the French school: the basic philosophy, a historical tale of how they came to power in France, how adherents of this school of thought use the same techniques today to get and maintain power in the U.S. and on a broader scale how people, even more or less decent people, can be devolved to take part in horrible acts against others while shouting contradictory chants about the common good. In writing this book Ann Coulter did not assume the reader/listener has any background in the subjects covered and thoroughly explained the concepts for anyone to understand but she still was able to provide substantial new information to the reader/listener like myself who has studied, read and listened extensively about history, politics, philosophy and economics. This book is truly great and is well worth the credit/money.

Blame it on Paris

The French are to blame first, then the Democratic Party according to AC.

This is an excellent history on the French Revolution and the revolutions that followed. There is a history on the American Revolution and how it differed from the FR. There is a lot on Mobs and mob mentality. These ideas and explanations alone are reason enough to buy the book.

AC is very entertaining, and very informative. It sounds as if a lot of research was done in order to write this book. Listening to the history was erudite. Evidently your not going to get this type of history lesson in our schools or universities.

AC's arrogance and all or nothing blame is the main problem. In placing blame she often contradicts herself, even in the same chapter. I believe she should also point out that she is talking about Liberal Elite, not the everyday hard working democrats. I am married to a democrat and she is not the evil, demonic person Coulter paints her. On the other hand Democratic Leaders are suspect. I was a Republican for years, but Bush ruined me on that. I now believe that there is not much difference between the two. Either party will do what it takes to be in power.

I think if you are a strong Democrat you do not want to buy this book, I believe it will probably just piss you off. If AC, Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck could all be less arrogant and so 100% sure of themselves they would do better for there cause, but they may not have as many listeners or sell as many books.
Preaching to the crowd sells books and gets ratings.

AC is entertaining and very informative. I enjoyed the book and learned about the FR , AR and mobs and how mobs work. Anytime I can learn and be entertained is a plus.

Awesome!

Ann proves again why she is the master of the entertaining and informative political insight.

I'd give 10 star's if I could!

More Facts Fewer Attacks Please

Ms. Coulter's books are usually funny and silly snipes at the Liberals, but, for some reason, this one was hard to enjoy. She seems lost in the ether somewhere. She goes on a four hour tirade about demonic Liberals, that you expect, but then she spends two hours on the history of the French Revolution, defending the French Monarchy. Then she goes back to her attack on the Liberals. Perhaps a better editing job could have organized this better.
After listening to all of her books, and enjoying them, this one falls flat. She misses too many details, uses too much hyperbole, and her arguments do not jibe with reality. Usually, she is good for some one liners or crafty reframing, but she rehashes way too many arguments from her previous books and writings.
I would give this one a pass, but I still look forward to the next book. More details/facts and less hyperbole and personal attacks.

Just when you thought it was safe....

Ann Coulter did it again. This time not only does she call out leftists on their hypocrisy, but she also provides a very detailed history of a number of key events that are generally misunderstood in our revisionist world (French Revolution etc.). If you are a leftist and afraid to listen to Ann, I think you should reconsider. No matter your perspective, she provides well documented insight into the mob mentality and how it is used in modern times. This is the heart of the ultra-leftist (Nazi, communist, socialist, environmentalist, etc. etc.) way of thinking....all facts are relative...the mob (collective good, Volk, common will, State) is holy...

This really is a powerful read, and I enjoyed it for the depth of history provided. This is a candidate within my library for a second listen...not that many books make that grade with me. Highly recommend.

Not Coulter's Best Work

Ann Coulter's book is a crafted argument connecting the ideology of Rousseau and the mob violence of the French Revolution to modern liberalism. While the connection is obvious to anyone not already indoctrinated into leftist thought, Coulter's book has value in reiterating the history of the French Revolution, as well as enumerating the ideological similarities within US liberalism. Her book explains a lot of reasons why the left rejects US Constitutional principles, all the while purporting to believe in equality. Coulter makes the connection that liberal "equality" is akin to the French "egalite et fraternite."

Coulter's main point, that liberalism is mob rule, explains a lot about liberal behavior in the US, as well as explaining the power elite who want to control and use the mob in order to promote leftist ideals. Coulter's call to arms at the end of the book, in order to fight against liberal mob rule, will be seen as inflammatory.

Two things marred this particular book: the lengthy coverage of a New York rape trial and subsequent "public retrial" through the media (including an appendix on the subject); and the narration by Elizabeth White. While the trial and the leftist media's revisiting the verdict exemplify the indoctrination that can lead to rejecting the rule of law, I'm still unsure why Coulter spent so many pages in its point-by-point rebuttal. White's narration, instead of reading the text straight, sounded smarmy throughout the entire book. Instead of helping the argument, it got in the way.

Those who like Ann Coulter won't be disappointed with the argument. Those who hate Ann Coulter won't be disappointed with the argument. If you're looking for a more general introduction into conservative thought, I'd suggest Thomas Sowell's Dismantling America.

Excellent and Highly Recommended by an author.

I am an author of many books myself and I can tell you that Ann Coulter's book is EXCELLENT and I HIGHLY recommend it. The research and facts in this book are outstanding and Ann must have spent a ton of time and effort to complete this book. I know that from doing extensive research on the books I have authored so I can appreciate the effort Ann put into her book. Demonic is very in-depth and covers numerous examples and facts throughout history to support her conclusions. Anyone who isn't a blind, ideological liberal moron will enjoy reading this book. You will find out how the demented liberal politicians and the leftist leaders use and manipulate the ignorant liberal brainwashed masses to follow them blindly - while they try to destroy the USA, the Constitution and undo everything the Founding Fathers put in place to protect liberty. The only people that would write negative reviews about this book will be the typical America hating liberals who are brain dead sheep that follow their liberal god leaders - like Barack Dumboma and the Dumbocrat politicians.

If you are a democrat you should read this.

Great Book - All you have to do is be an independent thinker. Don't just go along with the mob, think for your self! Quit being a hater today! Give freedom a chance, it is life changing.

If you are considering buying this book, stop considering and just do it. If you are afraid it will change your thinking in some way - be courageous. Freedom is important and once you are tricked into losing it, you will never get it back.

Don't be afraid of Ann... She wont hurt you.
