How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must)

The World According to Ann Coulter

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Welcome to the world of Ann Coulter. With her monumental bestsellers 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:

•The essence of being a liberal: “The absolute conviction that there is one set of rules for you, and another, completely different set of rules for everyone else.”

•John Kerry: “A reporter asked Kerry, ‘Are you for or against gay marriage?’ As usual, his answer was, ‘Yes.’ ”

•Her 9/11 comments: “I am often asked if I still think we should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity. The answer is: Now more than ever!”

•The state of the Democratic Party: “Teddy Kennedy crawls out of Boston Harbor with a quart of Scotch in one pocket and a pair of pantyhose in the other, and Democrats hail him as their party’s spiritual leader.”

•Her philosophy for arguing with liberals: “Tough love, except I don’t love them. My ‘tough love’ approach is much like the Democrats’ ‘middle-class tax cuts’—everything but the last word.”

•The “Treason Lobby”: “Want to make liberals angry? Defend the United States.”

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 04, 2004 – Never mind this book's title; from the writings collected here, it sounds like Coulter has never talked calmly with anyone, much less "liberals." In her view, "liberals" aren't even "sentient creatures." Rather, they are conspiracy theorists and "street performers" who "traffic in shouting and demagogy." Following her previous bestseller, Treason, this book reprints installments from the last five years of Coulter's syndicated column. Her modus operandi is to "start with the maximum assertion about liberals and then push the envelope, because, as we know, their evil is incalculable." If the title isn't clue enough, the "we" in that quote demonstrates her assumption that the reader is as angry as she is, which frees her to make any accusation, whether grounded in reality or not. Coulter's favorite target, hands down, is the New York Times, which she claims distorts the truth, ignores the facts or gets them wrong altogether. Her proposed solution for the 2001 incident in which China's "three-foot-tall dictator" held an American flight crew hostage: "give us the Americans and we'll let them keep any New York Times reporters." Not surprisingly, she was in favor of attacking Iraq, and many of her columns dating back to the first months of the invasion sound exceedingly out of touch now ("The rebuilding in Iraq is going better than could possibly have been expected"). Besides previously printed columns, the book includes a few new pieces on Coulter's pet peeves (like Democrats' "double standards"), as well as articles rejected by editors at magazines like the National Review and Good Housekeeping. Frequently funny, if only for its sheer audacity, this book will gratify "cranky conservatives" and outrage everyone else.

Customer Reviews

Hateful beeatch

This "woman" reeks of unmitigated hate. A modern day witch whose every word should be burned at the stake. To call her an "intellectual" as the description above suggests, is easily the most preposterous adjective for this shameless self-promoting abomination.


Garbage, absolute garbage!! This book is more like a high-school kid's hate journal. It is badly written and is only a bunch of babbling slander. It makes no real points, and I can't believe I read it! Ann Coulter must have some serious personal issues to have this much hatred and hate is a dangerous thing in the hands of the ignorant. Don't read this book it is just a bunch of mislead babbling from someone who hasn't a clue. I take all advice with a grain of salt but I refuse to take any advice from someone who believes the world was built in 7 days. Grow up Ann and read some science books, you may think you are intelligent but your certainly not wise.

Great book!

If you have liberal friends, buy them a copy. It will let them know what the rest of America really thinks of them.
