Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Citing political campaigns and the media and even taking a historical look at assassins, New York Times best-selling author Coulter (If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd All Be Republicans) strives here to convince readers of the evils of the liberal left. If, like Coulter, you believe that the biggest problem facing this nation is the plague of single mothers, then you're in for a treat (she devotes nearly an hour to this particular rant). Coulter fans will eat this up—others may find it hard to digest. Love the book or hate it, the narration by Margy Moore, whose inflection matches Coulter's no-holds-barred style, is right on target. For public libraries. [Audio clip available through library.booksontape.com; the Crown Forum hc, published in January, was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]—Valerie Piechocki, Prince George's Cty. Memorial Lib., Largo, MD

This is a great book! I was simply amazed to learn of all the events revealed in this book that had taken place over the past two or three decades of which I had no knowledge. I love to read (particularly history) and stay pretty current with politics and economics: yet, I had no inkling of many of the things that have gone on in this country. It was a real eye-opener. It confirmed my belief that the media has a large liberal bias and suppresses any news that is embarrassing to or negative about liberals.

Regardless of your political persuasion, or your opinion of Ann, you should read this book. It's a work that you will either love or hate. There's little in between.

This book's style is not unlike the style in her previous best sellers. But 'Guilty' seems in some places to have an even sharper point to the stick she taunts the liberal establishment, and more so the mainstream media with.

Her research is meticulously accurate, and she shows no mercy to anyone who stands in her path.

As one of my liberal friends who read the book put it "although I totally disagree with her, I must admit she has more stones than any guy I've met". If her style is confrontational, her points are backed up by well documented facts. She does her own research,so there's no one to blame for any factual errors, if you can find one. I've yet to see anyone document any misstatement of fact in her books, no matter what Media Matters claims. She makes no apology for the points she makes, or the way she makes them.

If you're of the conservative mindset, you'll probably love this book even more than her previous works. If you're more liberal, you'll be more enraged. She forces the reader to confront issues with her take no prisoners approach.

That frequently provokes strong reactions from both sides, but it also facilitates a dialog that many are too timid to confront. And it's a dialog that is long over due.

That's what good books do. You might not agree with some of it, or any of it. But if it makes you think, and it promotes the discussion of issues, it accomplishes a purpose beyond just being entertaining. Though it is a very entertaining work as well.

The truth hurts. Apparently it hurts quite a bit based upon some of the silly one star reviews on Amazon. I read through several of them and it is pretty clear that those spewing the most vitriol have not read the book.

On the other hand, I did read it. This is a solid and well researched treatment of Ann Coulter's subject: Liberals who claim to be victims while actually victimizing others. It is thoroughly footnoted.

Before reading this, I had heard some media commentary on it and most of that seemed to be focused on Coulter's thoughts on single mothers. She certainly has strong thoughts on the problems caused by this issue, but she also has lots of hard data to support her contentions. She talks about how they "are not only 'unsung heroines,' as the title of a recent book puts it, they are perennial victims - the unwitting victims of sex with men they're not married to."

Ms. Coulter calls them 'phony victims'. She strongly advocates that rather than raising children alone, women place them for adoption. She says that a failure to do so 'they consign their children to starting life with second-class status'. Her position is rather hard core, much more so than my own, but she makes a solid case for it.

Citing crimes and other societal problems, she asks the reader to 'imagine an America with 70 percent fewer juvenile delinquents, 70 percent fewer teenage births, 63 to 70 percent fewer teenage suicides, and 70 percent to 90 percent fewer runaways and you will appreciate what the sainted single mothers have accomplished.'

Although many readers will likely have a more moderate view of this issue, Coulter certainly provides lots to ponder. Her thoughts are certainly not just confined to single mothers. She explores many other areas.

I got the Audiobook so I could listen to it during my long commute. I liked it. While I'm not the biggest Coulter fan, I thought she hit the nail on the head when it comes to the liberal mentality and the biased in the news media. Some of these so called reporters and MSM outlets aren't even subtle about their biases anymore, they're that bold and brazen. She focuses a lot on how they propagate lies about Republican candidates even when they're deemed not true, yet ignore or barely report on the Democrat's misbehavior. She also does a good job of dissecting the liberals use of the "victim" status to further their agenda.

She does her research and everything she said can be looked up and verified.

I find it humorous people feel the need to give her a one start rating without actually reading the book or listening to the audiobook. Amazon needs to have a better rating system like you can't rate the piece unless you buy it from Amazon or something.

Over the years, Ann Coulter has made a name for herself by pointing out the inconsistencies inherent in liberal "arguments". In her latest book, "Guilty", Coulter argues that the mainstream media has allowed the Democratic party to spin things in their best interest - and created victims where none really exist.

It seems that everyone these days has a story of hardship and hope. Politicians must come from humble origins to be taken seriously. But how true are these stories? And how much does the media create hardship where none has existed?

The Clintons got a taste of the power of the mainstream media when Hillary ran against Barack Obama in the Democratic primary. Previously, the couple had been the sweethearts of the American press. However, when Obama came along, the media jumped on his bandwagon and Hillary was left in the dust. Suddenly, the media bias toward specific candidates was working against a Democrat.

Not only do liberals claim to be victims when there has been no wrongdoing, they will stoop to anything to get their way. Barack Obama had his opponents thrown out of the Illinois senate race when he first ran for office over "scandals" that turned out to be a whole lot of nothing. They create fear over an invisible "Republican Hate Machine" that simply doesn't exist. And by doing this, they have created true victims, people who really have suffered from these things.

Ann Coulter can be brash and unapologetic, but she is usually right. This book is her best yet, a true reveal of the insanity that goes on behind the scenes of the Democratic party. And for those of you who don't like Coulter, don't read her books. You're not going to be happy with what you see.
